Short Communication

I propose a new, safe, novel, and instantaneous method of abortion viz-the handheld electric zapper/catheter. At present there are two methods of abortion in existence-the surgical and the medical. I propose the electrical. Termination should come instantaneously, and this method should be equally effective for a new zygote and a nine-month-old foetus. The electric zapper could be applied externally while the electric catheter could be applied internally via the vagina. The mother could be locally anaesthetized or wide awake. She will feel little to no discomfort. Voltage will be carefully selected to that effect. We must remember that the fetus is much less resistant to electric shock than the mother. In one study for example 15 pregnant women suffered electric shocks and all but 4 lost their pregnancies. Of the 4 that survived, only one was born without side effects. [1] Electricity seems to be the way forward for abortion. I envision a device simpler to operate than a TV remote so that women can give themselves abortions at home. Personally, I am not a fan of abortion but let those women who have chosen to have an abortion be able to do it themselves and with zero to little pain to themselves or the fetuses. Women worldwide should look forward to the creation of the electric zapper/catheter. There’ll be no more need for pesky surgery or clumsy tablets. [2-7] The surgical and medical [8] methods will be superseded [9].
