But this time, something went wrong during the abortion, and an ambulance was called to help when the abortion staff suspected that her uterus had been perforated.
The woman was experiencing significant pain even though fentanyl had been administered to her prior to the abortion. First trimester surgical abortions, which are the most common, usually take 3-5 minutes to complete.
