Gosnell is not an aberration

Inhuman: Undercover in America’s Late-Term Abortion Industry – NEW YORK

Attitude of counselor to answering detailed questions about the procedure: “I don’t know why you want to know this. Just do it.”

Counselor’s advice if baby is born alive at home: “Flush it or put it in a bag and bring it here.”

Misinformation (aka, lies) provided to patient:

  • The laminaria stick “will stop the baby’s heart.” (The laminaria merely dilates the cervix.)
  • The baby doesn’t feel pain. (This is based on a single, highly politicized study that defined “pain” so narrowly that it was not possible before 30 weeks gestation. For people who get it that “pain” is “something that hurts”, fetal pain is well documented at extremely early ages.)

From “Doctors on Fetal Pain”

A wealth of anatomical, behavioral and physiological evidence shows that the developing human fetus is capable of experiencing tremendous pain by 20 weeks post-fertilization. Pain receptors are present throughout the unborn child’s entire body by no later than 16 weeks after fertilization, and nerves link these receptors to the brain’s thalamus and subcortical plate by no later than 20 weeks. For unborn children, says Dr. Paul Ranalli, a neurologist at the University of Toronto, 20 weeks is a “uniquely vulnerable time, since the pain system is fully established, yet the higher level pain-modifying system has barely begun to develop.” As a result, unborn babies at this age probably feel pain more intensely than adults. http://www.doctorsonfetalpain.com/

This is what the counselor claims the clinic casually disposes of “all the time”
