What exactly takes place during every abortion?
Three main methods are used to end the life of an unborn child. First, for early pregnancies, there is the dilation and curettage technique (D&C). The cervix is first dialated, and a tube is inserted into the mother's uterus. This tube is attached to a suction apparatus that tears the little baby apart and deposits him or her into a jar.
A curette (a surgical instrument shaped like a scoop to remove tissue from a bodily cavity) is then used to scrape the wall of the uterus to remove any part's of the baby's body that might still be present. Often the suction tube is not used at all, and the curette is simply used to cut the baby's body to pieces and scrape out the placenta.
After about the third month of pregnancy, this techniques becomes too dangerous for the mother, so a saline abortion is employed. This might be called salt poisoning. A solution of concentrated salt is injected into the amniotic fluid in the sac around the growing baby. The salt is absorbed by the baby who is poisoned to death after about an hour. The outer layer of his or her skin is burned off by the salt; and about a day later, the mother goes into labor and delivers a discolored and shriveled-up baby.
A few such babies have been delivered alive, although they rarely survive long.
Prostaglandins can also be used after the third month of pregnancy. Prostaglandin chemicals are injected into the uterus, causing the mother to go into premature labor and deliver a dead baby. However, prostaglandin babies have been born alive, much to the embarrassment of some pro-abortion camps.
The third method, which is used for more developed pregnancies, is the hysterotomy. This is like a Caesarean operation, except that in the hysterotomy, the object is not to save the child but to kill him or her. In this case, the baby has to be either killed outright or allowed to die...
