The common medical procedure for a second or third trimester abortion is called a “D&E” for “dilation and evacuation.” Here’s how Dr. LeRoy Cahart, an abortionist, describes the D&E.
“My normal course would be to dismember that appendage and then go back and try to take the fetus out whether foot or skull first, whatever end I can get to first….Just pulling and rotation, grasping the portion that you can get hold of which would be usually somewhere up the shaft of the exposed portion of the fetus …”
In other words, the baby, who has had a beating heart for over three months and who has a fully developed nervous system, is ripped apart. There is an ongoing debate over whether a baby with a fully developed nervous system can feel pain. That debate is between people who have an understanding of medicine, science and humanity and people who have no soul.
In a huge step forward the Kansas legislature passed a bill – by a huge bipartisan majority – and Governor Sam Brownback signed into law the “Unborn Child Protection from Dismemberment Abortion Act” with virtually no debate.
The best Sen. David Haley (D) could come up with was to argue the word “dismemberment” should be replaced with the word “healthcare.”
“It was clearly demonstrated in the Kansas Senate that the pro-abortion side has no substantive defense for the barbaric abortion procedure of dismembering living, tiny unborn babies with sharp metal tools,” said Kathy Ostrowski, the executive director of Kansans for Life.
The abortion advocacy side – Democrats, mainly – are beside themselves. They want to talk about the “health of women” over a procedure where, in the best of circumstances, 50% of the “patients” die. They’re terrified because this bill – and the description “dismemberment” – exactly describe what is happening.
The two biggest threats to unlimited, unrestricted abortion are 3D ultrasound and taking back the language. Here’s an ultrasound, it’s only three minutes, and it shows forty weeks of a baby developing in the uterus.
Nice smile at 40 weeks. Debbie Wasserman Schultz and her Democratic colleagues are perfectly fine with an abortionist wiping the smile off that baby’s face.
With respect to language, when the Progressive agenda is correctly framed it will lose every time.
