The Dilatation and Evacuation (D&E) Abortion Procedure

A common abortion procedure performed in the second trimester is Dilatation and Evacuation (D&E), in which the child is dismembered with forceps. Standard abortion textbooks such as Warren Hern's Abortion Practice describe the procedure in detail. Dr. Tony Levatino, who once performed this procedure, describes it for us.
