PENSACOLA, Florida, April 19, 2006 ( - A free video demonstration of a partial birth abortion has been posted online by a pro-life doctor and R.A.G.E. Media.

The short clip uses dramatization to show the viewer the basic technique involved in a partial birth abortion. A chair, a sheet, a baby doll and the actual instruments of an abortionist are used in the demonstration—the simplicity of the props enhances the absolute horror of the procedure, even though there is no blood or disturbing images. 

 “Seeing the actual procedure’s steps, even so simply demonstrated, strips away the arguments of why this barbaric procedure should be allowed,” said Paul Nowak, president of R.A.G.E. Media, who posted the video on his blog site.  (

The clip is part of a presentation on pre-birth development by Dr. William Lile, a pro-life obstetrician and gynaecologist. Dr. Lile has created a multi-media presentation, “The Miracle of Life,” on the unborn child, using ultrasound images and videos of fetal surgery. He includes in the presentation a demonstration of the instruments of abortion, showing how they are used to end the life of the developing child in all three trimesters.

Dr. Lile’s website states, “[My] goal is to use the visual technology of modern obstetrics to reveal the personhood of unborn babies threatened by abortion.”

Fr. Frank Pavone, national director of Priests for Life, has endorsed Dr. Lile’s work. “I have seen Dr. William Lile’s presentation and recommend it to pro-life groups everywhere!”
