Wrong Woman Receives Abortion


Don’t you just hate it when an abortion is performed on the wrong woman?

Like was recently the case at a major “teaching” hospital in Prague, capital of the Czech Republic. A healthy woman, four months pregnant, was mistakenly sedated and given an abortion when she should have been having a routine check-up. Doctors performed a curettage-- a kind of uterus surgery-- on her which led to her miscarrying. The curettage was supposed to be performed on a different woman.

A hospital spokeswoman told CNN Prima: “An adverse event occurred at our Gynecology and Obstetrics Clinic. According to the findings so far, as a result of serious violations and non-compliance with internal regulations by the employees concerned, an operation was started on an incorrectly identified patient.”

“An adverse event occurred?!” That sounds like the woman received a parking ticket or had a fender-bender, not had her baby’s life stolen from inside her.

 At the very least, I hope the spokeswoman exclaimed: “Sorry, our bad! Didn’t mean to mangle your uterus and kill your kid!”

Well, accidents happen, right? I mean que sera sera, whatever will be will be.

In all seriousness, this is obviously shocking and tragic, and especially traumatic to the wronged woman and her family. Which will now be one fewer than it would/should have been. My heart goes out to her. And I fervently hope the “serious violations and non-compliance with internal regulations by the employees concerned” was not the result of D.E.I. hiring.
