ROSTOV, Southern Russia, August 5, 2004 ( – At age 55, a Russian woman finally learned the cause of her life-long infertility—the bony remains of the baby she had aborted at age 19 was still lodged in her uterus. Galina Skvortsova learned the news from her gynecologist after an examination to determine the cause of an unrelated condition.  Gynecologist, Dr. Olga Kogan, when conducting a hysteroscopic (camera device) exam, was startled by her finding. “I could not believe it”, she said. “. . . The ‘cannon-bone’ [was] 2.5 centimeters in size, and this means that Galina had an abortion when she was pregnant for a long time, about 4 months.”  The 2.5 cm bone acted in a similar way to an intra-uterine device, scraping the lining of the uterus, preventing the implantation of newly-formed human embryos, according to Kogan.

In a case study published in the April 2003 issue of the journal Fertility and Sterility, the researchers noted that fetal bone fragments can lodge into the muscular tissue in the uterus concealing them from hysteroscopes which are normally used to detect remaining baby parts after abortions.  An analysis of common abortion methods reveals clearly how bone fragments could be lost in the uterus after abortions. Abortions after the third month of pregnancy, when bone tissue has already formed, usually require the bones of the unborn child to be broken. Dilation and Curettage abortions use a hook shaped knife (curette) which cuts the body into pieces prior to evacuation. However later term abortions require Dilation and Evacuation abortions in which a pair of forceps is inserted into the womb to grasp part of the fetus. The teeth of the forceps twist and tear the bones of the unborn child. This process is repeated until the fetus is totally dismembered and removed. Usually the spine must be snapped and the skull crushed in order to remove the full body.  When learning the cause of her life-long infertility, Galina sighed and said, “I was destined to this.”  Read the related report:  Infertility Can Be Caused By Aborted Baby Bone Fragments Left In Uterus   tv
