It’s a known fact that D&E abortions are risky for women. Of course, these are the same abortions that rip babies limb from limb in their mothers’ wombs – the same ones that Kansas just banned.
But, far from banning D&E abortions, the Kapiolani Medical Center for Women and Children at the University of Hawaii is planning to conduct experiments on minor girls with D&E abortions. According to Breitbart, here are the requirements for the experimental study:
[The experiment will be conducted on] pregnant girls and women…[who will] participate in second-trimester abortions to measure their bleeding during the operation, with and without antihemorrhagic drugs. According to the Clinical Trials website, run by the National Institutes of Health, participants must be at least 14 years old and 18-24 weeks pregnant.
Yes, 14 years old. A university’s medical center actually thinks it’s a good idea to experiment with letting very young teenage girls possibly bleed out during an abortion.
Twenty-year-old Sharista Giles was left in a coma after she was injured during a car accident in December. At the time of the accident, Giles was five months pregnant.
Doctors offered her family little hope, and informed them that there was a 90 to 98 percent chance that Giles would never recover. In March, the family made the decision to move Giles to the Harriman Care and Rehabilitation Center. After months in a coma, Giles woke up.
PregnancyChat has posted a beautifully informative video on YouTube that demonstrates the journey of every baby from fertilization to birth.
The video begins by saying:
Only two cells are needed to create a baby…two cells, and a miracle.
It continues, while showing the process of fertilization:
Gently nestled and protected in a mother’s womb, a tiny human thrives.
The 4 1/2 minute video – which has been viewed nearly 1,000,000 times – is composed largely of real-life ultrasound footage of preborn babies from early in their lives until just before birth. The video includes a glorious scene with a mother and her newborn, nestled tightly in her arms for the very first time.
Have you ever wondered how a baby develops so rapidly and fully in his or her mother’s womb? Well, this astounding short video demonstrates the mind-blowing process for us to witness. It’s a computerized, fast-paced – and accurate – window to the womb.
Here’s the description of the video on YouTube:
Life is truly wonderful! In fact, the development of human life in the womb is just amazing. Did you know that everything about you — including how tall you would be, the color of your eyes, and the color of your skin– was all determined at the time of fertilization? Month-by-month you grew in the safety and comfort of your mother’s womb until the big day of your birth finally arrived!
“Life in the Womb” is a fascinating video that gives us the story of the unborn child, and demonstrates the fetus development in the Uterus.
When I was pregnant with my first child I researched doctors and hospitals, knowing that not all hospitals and their doctors look upon unborn children as equally human and valuable as their mothers. I intentionally drove 25 minutes out of my way to see a pro-life OB/GYN and deliver at a hospital that I knew valued life at all stages.
Upon waking after nearly dying during childbirth, I saw how important that decision was in my life, and that of my child.
A few news sources have recently reported an extremely rare occurrence: a baby, delivered by emergency caesarean section at 26 weeks, with his amniotic sac still completely intact around his tiny body.
According to reports, this is something so rare that many OB-GYNs will never see it in their careers. In roughly one in every 80,000 births is the baby born with a portion of the amniotic sac, let alone the sac fully intact.
From this amazing photo of baby Silas Johnson, it’s easy to see his hands, feet, head, and little torso, which makes it more horrific to realize that in many states, it’s perfectly legal to rip him limb from limb in the womb through a late-term abortion procedure. According to the Guttmacher Institute, eight states have no gestational limits on abortion, meaning these states allow abortions at 26 weeks – and beyond.
I was a nurse practicing in North Carolina. I worked on a Gynecology/tumor unit at a teaching hospital. The unit included 4 prostaglandin abortion beds. The babies who were aborted were between 18-20wks of age. Most women were young, but occasionally there were patients whose babies had life threatening defects. I assisted the doctor in the initial placement of the prostaglandin. Then the women were left on the floor to deliver.
A Mississippi abortion law is the latest to arrive at the Supreme Court. Mississippi has asked the high court to review the decision of a federal district court that blocked a law from going into effect; that law requires physicians performing abortions to have admitting privileges in local hospitals.
Common in many states, the law helps ensure women’s safety by assuring them of quick hospital care should something go wrong during the abortion. But abortion advocates say it’s a ploy by pro-lifers to disguise outlawing abortions in the guise of safety.
One could say that the best way to learn about abortion is to listen to the stories of those who have actually been there, in the rooms where abortions were performed- the former abortionists and clinic workers. These first-hand accounts, like the you one are about to read, are powerful testimonies of the inhumanity of abortion.
In the article “Abortion Clinics: an inside Look” published by Last Days Ministries and online here two abortion clinic workers tell their stories.
For years, Dr. David A. Grimes has written books and manuals, detailing how to perform abortions.
Now, however, he is roundly condemning pro-lifers for “dwelling” on those exact same details. In an article for RH Reality Check, Grimes writes, with Carole Joffe, that the pro-life movement is attempting another “public-relations success” with new proposed legislation that would ban D&E abortions:
[T]hat same playbook is being used again in Kansas, Oklahoma, and South Dakota in a new campaign to outlaw yet another second-trimester abortion method, “dilation and evacuation” (D and E). Once again, the medical term for this procedure has been replaced by a garish one, “dismemberment abortion,” and once again, abortion opponents are hoping that dwelling on the details of this procedure will lead lawmakers to ban it.
Well, note to Dr. Grimes: pro-life advocates came upon the term “dismemberment abortion” because that’s exactly what a D&E abortion is. In short detail, a baby is literally ripped apart with metal instruments, limb by limb. While still alive, the baby is made into piecemeal and taken, bit by bit, out of her mother’s womb.
In an article profiling the now deceased late-term abortionist Dr. William Rashbaum (which I’ve referenced before) writer Rebecca Paley says late-term abortions are more dangerous than early ones, as well as more difficult to perform safely. But this is not why many abortionists don’t like to do them:
Technical difficulty, however, is not why many doctors don’t want to do second-trimester abortions. What troubles them is that as a pregnancy progresses, the fetus increasingly resembles a baby….
The Kansas Senate has approved a measure that would outlaw dilation and evacuation abortion procedures, usually done for second trimester abortions. In Kansas, this will affect about 8% of abortions. The bill redefines these abortions as “dismemberment” abortions.
Senate Bill 95 easily passed the Kansas Senate Friday with a vote of 31-9. The dismemberment section reads:
“‘Dismemberment abortion’ means, with the purpose of causing the death of an unborn child, knowingly dismembering a living unborn child and extracting such unborn child one piece at a time from the uterus through the use of clamps, grasping forceps, tongs, scissors or similar instruments that, through the convergence of two rigid levers, slice, crush or grasp a portion of the unborn child’s body in order to cut or rip it off.”
