The propaganda of the abortion industry (to which here I will refer as Planned Parenthood, the largest abortion provider in the United States), is that it wants to provide information for women to make the best decision for themselves; however, the information they actually offer is often incomplete and misleading.
Planned Parenthood pamphlets describe abortion as “a simple procedure which takes about ten minutes or so. You can go home the same day…” This information can be misleading because, while it is true that an abortion takes about that long, Planned Parenthood, does not actually describe what takes place in these few minutes. For many women, knowing what takes place would mean a different choice about abortion. Anyone who claims choice for women as a priority should admit that good choices cannot happen without good information.
Here are some things the abortion industry might not tell women:
At this age, the baby is already a full, biological human being. She was one at the moment of fertilization where she had 46 chromosomes, her own set of DNA, metabolism, growth, reaction to stimuli and cell reproduction. In fact, by the time the baby is old enough for her mother to have an abortion (5 weeks), she already has her own heart which beats at a different rhythm than her mom’s. She even has her own blood type! When women go into Planned Parenthood and ask them how developed their baby is, they typically answer that the baby is nothing more than a pregnancy, or a clump of cells, or a product of fertilization. The truth is that that’s inaccurate and misleading because a pregnancy is a condition of a woman, not a thing. The fetus is way more than a clump of cells and, unless someone sprouted into life from thin air, we are all a product of fertilization. The abortion industry uses these terms to portray the baby as less than human and to negate or undermine the baby’s development.
The abortionists insert a canulla, which is a vacuum with suction power stronger than a home vacuum, into the cervix and suck out the baby. The abortionist will then put all the parts of the baby’s body together to make sure that he got the whole body and that there’s not an arm or a leg left inside of the mother, which can cause a serious infection (just imagine the damage a body part of a dead person inside of a woman can do). It is true that this takes about ten minutes.
The baby now has her own set of fingerprints that no one else shares! Because she has muscles, the mom can feel her kick sometimes! She has eyes, small ears, and even hair! The baby has all her organs in place (like lungs) and she’s practicing how to breathe. If the mom talks to the baby, she can hear her!
By now, the baby is too big and strong to be sucked out, so what the abortionist has to do is take her out by breaking her apart limb by limb. With his special tongs, he will break off her legs, then her arms, then the bottom part of her body. Finally, he will crush her skull and pull it out.
The baby is getting bigger and bigger. She can sleep and suck her thumb and even dance (she moves to the sound of music). In fact, a lot of her learning begins here. If she doesn’t learn how to breathe correctly and do other important tasks in here, she’ll have trouble learning to speak and walk a little later. The baby is ready to be born any minute now and can even survive out of the womb before she is nine months old.
The baby is lucky now that it is not before 2006, when the Supreme Court declared the following method unconstitutional: abortionists would abort babies by birthing them out feet first, delivering the baby but leaving the head inside. The nurse would help hold the baby still when it kicked and moved. The abortionist would then puncture a hole through her head and suck out her brains. He would then crush her skull.
After 2006, the abortionist can no longer start with this procedure, but today, if he begins an abortion with any other method and feels it necessary to end with this procedure, he still can.
Another way they will abort the baby at this age is the abortionist will find the heartbeat using an ultrasound and will inject digoxin into the baby’s heart. He will then deliver the dead baby.
This is what abortion is. These are the facts that Planned Parenthood will not mention. Check out this video of Planned Parenthood lying to a young girl as they often do:
