In a recent PBS documentary about the abortion divide in America, viewers watch a woman abort her twins in real time.

The segment of the documentary, which shows a woman taking the abortion pill, was highlighted by pro-life activist Obianuju Ekeocha, who noted that PBS “airbrushes abortion to make it look like some healthy new age practice.”

Watch the clip or check out the transcript below. The doctor giving the woman the abortion pill describes the babies growing inside her as “pregnancy tissue” and the RU486 as what will “make the pregnancy stop growing.” Seriously.

Worse than that, however, is what the woman says of her decision: “Thank you for choosing me, and I’m honored to be given this gift of life. And also, I, I can’t do it right now. I can’t accept that mantle in terms of the other lives that I’m taking care of and I’m responsible for.”

MARK OBENHAUS:

The clinic’s call center is open seven days a week, and when we visited, there was a constant flow of incoming calls to schedule abortions.

LAURA:

Are you looking to do the medical abortion by pill or the surgical procedure?

REBECCA MERCIER:

A medical abortion procedure is very similar to inducing a miscarriage. It is safe for women to do up to about 10 weeks of their pregnancy.

So, do you have any questions before we get you started here?

TARYN:

No.

REBECCA MERCIER:

A great procedure for women who want to feel like they have control over the procedure, who wants to just have everything happen in the privacy of their own home.

MARK OBENHAUS:

The drug mifepristone, RU486, was approved by the FDA in 2000.

REBECCA MERCIER:

I‘ll have you do the first pill.

MARK OBENHAUS:

Medical abortions now account for roughly a third of all abortions in Pennsylvania.

REBECCA MERCIER:

This is the first pill you’re going to take. This is the one called the mifepristone. This is the stuff that makes the pregnancy stop growing and start to unattach a little bit, from the uterus. It gets the process started.

TARYN:

Okay.

REBECCA MERCIER:

So, you swallow that down like a regular pill.

TARYN:

Okay.

REBECCA MERCIER

Twenty-four hours later she takes another pill, called misoprostol, that helps to induce the cramping and the bleeding that will actually help her body push the pregnancy tissue out of her uterus.

This is the misoprostol medicine that gives you a little bit of the miscarriage symptoms.

TARYN:

Okay.

REBECCA MERCIER:

Okay? And do you have your follow-up appointment made?

TARYN:

I do.

REBECCA MERCIER:

Okay. In a week or two?

TARYN:

Yes.

REBECCA MERCIER:

Okay. That’s really important, ‘cause we want to keep…

TARYN:

What I hope I feel is a sense of peace, not only with myself and in the decision that I’ve made, but also a sense of peace with these two beings that I’ve chosen not to bring into the world. Thank you for choosing me, and I’m honored to be given this gift of life. And also, I, I can’t do it right now. I can’t accept that mantle in terms of the other lives that I’m taking care of and I’m responsible for. [PBS]

As Dr. Monique Ruberu, an anti-abortion OB-GYN shown in the documentary, says, “Holy Mary Mother of God pray for us sinners.”
