On April 18, 2007 the United States Supreme Court upheld the ban on partial-birth abortion. In that decision, Gonzales v Carhart, the court described another abortion procedure that remains legal throughout America. It is called the D and E procedure. Here are the exact words of the Supreme Court:
“The doctor grips a fetal part with the forceps and pulls it back through the cervix
…, continuing to pull even after meeting resistance from the cervix. The friction
causes the fetus to tear apart. For example, a leg might be ripped off the fetus as it is pulled through the cervix and out of the woman. The process of evacuating the fetus piece by piece continues until it has been completely removed.”
End of quote.
What more needs to be said to convince us to act?
