Abortion Methods

Partial-Birth Abortion:

    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 from 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.

Saline Amniocentesis:

    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.

Inter-cardiac Injection:

    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.
