Pearl Jams Black - The Abortion.


“Kanta” the nurse looked up from her clipboard at the waiting chairs, she was seated there.“Yes,” she stood up.“I am sujata ...come...Dr.Jayant will see you shortly.”.She was now seated in a small room with a big machine that had a bed attached with a screen.She was calm but the horror in her eyes was there to see, if anyone cared to look at it.Soon the door opened and a chubby man entered, wearing a green coat with white pants, bearing the nametag ‘Dr. Jayant Dhule’.“No,No.Don’t get up...remain seated".He stepped forward and shook Kanta’s hand.“What can I do for you today, Kanta?”."The Asian Hospital charges too much for an abortion, so I was hoping you could help me." Kanta said in One breath.Dr. Jayant Dhule continues, "Well, it has always been about money for them, I will help you, and you’ll have to sign a few papers. Always have to do the paperwork, you know,” He smiled; Kanta's face  was expressionless as she nodded in return breathed deeply and said“Sure, I know about paperwork."

Dr. Jayant Dhule nodded as well, and turned on the computer that occupied the center of his desk."Have you got your previous ultrasound reports?” Dr. Jayant Dhule typed briefly .“May I know the reason for the abortion? silence slumbered.Dr Jayant looked at the reports and kept typing on the computer. About fifteen minutes later,he pressed the ‘print’ button,and a few neatly typed sheets of paper slid out of the printer."You sign here, saying that you are requesting this procedure of your own free will, and here,  for your wishes for disposition of the body,”.“Then press your right thumb in the square at the bottom of each page. The fingerprint assures anyone asking that it is indeed you who signed, not some stranger.” Kanta did as she was directed, then looked up.“When can you do it?” she asked. “Why, right away,” Dr. Jayant Dhule assured her.“Do you want to wait? We can do it any time you want.”.“No, the sooner the better. I just had a breakup. No one will accept me with a baby.”

“Sujata," Dr Jayant Dhule called for the nurse.“Please prepare Kanta for the procedure, alert Dr. Rohit Shetty for the anaesthesia, then see to the filing of these papers. Have to keep all the paperwork legal, you know.” The nurse nodded and beckoned Kanta out of the room. "Take off your clothes, put this on and have a seat on the end of the table there. Doctor Rohit Shetty will be here in just a moment.” Kanta looked at the hospital gown for a while, undressed, dressed in the gown, lay down, still expressionless. Dr. Jayant Dhule entered, leaned back in his chair, smiled, saw the paperwork and started the procedure.Within a few hours someone lost a life and someone supposedly got a new life .

PS : This is in response to a challenge by Harshal Bhave , I hope you all like it.

  6. Well written about a very controversial topic. The ending tells me that you are a pro-lifer and anti abortion, even though your story allows the perspective of another's choice. A good read.

  8. While it is a simple story and a true one for many women, you have written it really well, doing justice to each sentiment (explained or unexplained)!
