Leech..abortions?

OH MY SWEET LOVING CHRIST. I came across this accidentally on Google.
"Leeches should not be applied to the pregnant womb, without its being plugged with cotton wool, for their taking inside the cervix would most likely bring on abortion. A friend of mine applied six leeches to a patient who was suffering severely from extensive inflammntion in the fourth month of her pregnancy. Only four of the six leeches were accounted for, and as the other two could not be recovered by the finger or by injections, it is almost certain that they bit inside the cervix; for the pain of their application did not subside until abortion had taken place on the following day."
