The Congressional Judiciary Committee has begun investigating Planned Parenthood. One of the first witnesses was Priscilla Smith, a Director and Senior Fellow at the Program for the Study of Reproductive Justice at Yale Law School.
One of Ms. Smith’s statements exposed the spiritual death inflicted on those who insist on supporting abortion. Her statement both horrified me and made me deeply sad.
Dismemberment abortion (aka, D&E) is the most popular method used by abortionists on second trimester fetuses. This is how this procedure was described by a man who does them:
A second-trimester D&E abortion is a blind procedure. The baby can be in any orientation or position inside the uterus. Picture yourself reaching in with the Sopher clamp and grasping anything you can. At twenty weeks’ gestation, the uterus is thin and soft, so be careful not to perforate or puncture the walls. Once you have grasped something inside, squeeze on the clamp to set the jaws and pull hard – really hard. You feel something let go, and out pops a fully formed leg, about 4 to 5 inches long. Reach in again and grasp whatever you can. Set the jaw and pull really hard once again, and out pops an arm about the same length. Reach in again and again with that clamp, and tear out the spine, intestines, heart, and lungs.
The toughest part of a D&E abortion is extracting the baby’s head. The head of a baby that age is about the size of a plum and is now free-floating inside the uterine cavity. You can be pretty sure you have hold of it if the Sopher clamp is spread about as far as your fingers will allow. You will know you have it right when you crush down on the clamp and see a pure white gelatinous material issue from the cervix. That was the baby’s brains. You can then extract the skull pieces. If you have a really bad day like I often did, a little face may come out and stare back at you.
Congratulations! You have just successfully performed a Suction D&E abortion.
- “A really bad day” was one on which he felt the Holy Spirit desperately trying to awaken him to the monster he had become.
- A really good day would have been one on which he reeled in horror and threw himself on the mercy of God.
When Ms. Smith was asked if being torn limb from limb was “a humane way to die,” she said, “Yes, D&E abortion is a very humane procedure.”
Later in the hearing, Rep. Forbes noted that pro-abortion witnesses seemed incapable of finding any point at which abortionists went too far or were too brutal. Yet, “they dare suggest that we are extreme.”
