Used 4-1/2 to nine months. The preborn baby is rotated
and delivered feet first, except for the head. The back of the neck is
punctured with scissors and suction is used to suck out the brain and collapse
the skull. The dead baby is fully delivered.
Dr. Martin Haskell has done more than 1,000 of these
late-term abortions. He said he does them “routinely” for non-medical reasons,
and that 80 percent are “purely elective.” That means the baby was healthy
and the mother had no health risks. Former U.S. Surgeon General C. Everett
Koop said that “in no way” are partial-birth abortions a “medical necessity
for the mother.”
Used in the first three months of pregnancy. A suction
tube, 27 times more powerful than a home vacuum cleaner, is inserted into
the opening of the womb. The powerful suction tears the baby apart limb
Dilation and Curettage (D&C):
Used at the end of the third month of pregnancy (approx.
12 weeks). The mother’s cervix is dilated, ring forceps are inserted into
the womb and the baby is extracted piece by piece. Then a curette (a sharp
knife with a loop shape) is inserted and used to scrape away any of the
baby or the placenta that remains. Profuse bleeding follows.
Dilation and Extraction (D&E):
Used after 13 weeks. The mother’s cervix is dilated
and the live, preborn child is dismembered with pliers-like forceps. With
a twisting motion, the baby’s body is torn apart, the spine is snapped
and the skull crushed. Baby parts are often left inside the mother’s womb,
causing serious complications and sometimes death to the mother.
Done after 16 weeks. A concentrated salt solution
is injected with an amniocentesis needle into the amniotic fluid. The baby
breathes and swallows it and dies more than an hour later of acute salt
poisoning. The mother then delivers a burned, dead baby. Use has declined
because of dangers for the mother – and sometimes the baby survives.
Used late-term. A substance is injected into the
amniotic sac, to cause premature labor and birth.
Poison is injected into the chest or heart of the
baby via a long needle inserted through the mother’s abdomen. The dead
baby is absorbed. Sometimes this results in loss of all the babies during
“pregnancy reduction” in multi-fetal pregnancies.
“Birth Control” Abortions:
RU486, methotrexate, Norplant, IUDs, prostaglandins
and Depo-Provera all cause early chemical abortions. The Pill has a “backup”
abortifacient action if conception takes place.
