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.
