True Face of an Abortion
By Kevin Roeten
The act of aborting an individual is usually hidden
in some Planned Parenthood office. A few doctors have physically seen the
procedure done. A few others have seen the killings after the whole baby has
left the uterus. Some truly grisly sights have been discovered in waste
dumpsters. Not many of us really know exactly what goes on behind those closed
doors. We therefore need to prepare.
Father Frank Pavone (Priests for Life) has posted two videos to YouTube
www.youtube.com/watch?v=QBOAPleF1t0 that explains exactly what happens
during an abortion. It’s very convenient that the mother never sees the actual
abortion. The abortionist many times has an ultrasound picture of the procedure
and watches it take place, but never allows the mother to see it. Most times,
the abortionist has to ‘feel’ his way around the uterus without sight as to
where the baby is.
Most abortions fall into either of two categories: a Suction Curettage usually
done during the 1st semester, and a D&E (Dilation and Extraction), during the
2nd semester. With the Suction Curettage, a cannula (hollow tube) is used by the
abortionist who runs a vacuum pump attached to it. The baby is continually
prodded until it breaks into small enough pieces to be sucked through the
After the abortionist believes he has sucked all the parts of the baby out of
the uterus, a sharp curette is pushed into the uterus to scrape away any parts
of the procedure that are left. If the baby is small enough, she/he goes though
the tube intact.
For the D&E, the “E” stands for extraction. And because the baby is much larger,
it has to be extracted in parts. Forceps are used to grab anything it can
grip--probably any extremities of the child first. Usually the abortionist
cannot see what he’s grabbing. Without direct sight, the extremities are
physically separated (ripped) from the body.
Next is the head, which is the largest part. To be able to fit through the
mother, the head is usually perforated and its contents emptied. It is usually
crushed if big enough. Typically it is brought out in fragments. How do you
perforate something you can’t directly see?
There are “Yellow Page” ads for abortions of babies 26 and 28 weeks old. D&E
abortions have been performed on babies 32 weeks and older. Per Father Pavone,
“If we’re going to talk about abortion in this country, let’s make sure we know
what we’re talking about…”.
An abortionist, Dr. Martin Haskell, says he knows the fetus is still alive
because he feels it move and actually sees the heart beating before the
procedure. But people will say this is not a life and is a mere blob of tissue.
It seems highly likely that some or all of the babies feel pain from this type
Do we ever put dogs or other animals though this kind of procedure? And we
complain that waterboarding of terrorists is torture when it actually involves
no physical pain? It’s likely we can witness pain firsthand by viewing the
videotape of an ultrasound of an abortion. But it seems unlikely to ever get one
from an abortion clinic.
Probably anyone who watches such a procedure would never be pro-choice again.
Likely, if mothers were shown the tape of their own abortion, they would never
get another one. It is probable abortionists like Planned Parenthood may see
major monetary losses if such a video ever was shown. If anyone insists abortion
should always be a choice, all one has to do is ask them if they’ve ever
actually seen one.
Such a video will get out, sooner or later. And it could be said with
tongue-in-cheek there likely will be h-ll to pay.
