"Products of conception"
That is the phrase used by some literature to de-humanize a new unborn human. For the record, you and I are both products of conception as well.
These are products of conception. They are quite obviously human. The first picture is toward the end of the first trimester--probably 10-12 weeks. The abortion procedures literally TEAR these babies apart. They do not magically die at the start of the abortion so that all the "dr" has to do is remove them. In the "suction" procedure used in the first four months, the baby is suctioned (like a vacuum) out. Since the baby is usually larger than the instrument-at four months he is about the size of an avocado-- he is necessarily ripped apart. The abortion shown on ultrasound in "The Silent Scream" was a suction abortion. The baby clearly thrashes about trying, unsuccessfully, to escape the instrument. To suggest that he does not feel his slaughter is insanity.
Once the baby is too large for the "suction" abortion, a "dilation and evacuation" is done. In this procedure, "contents of the uterus are scraped and suctioned out and larger pieces are removed with forceps." What this means is that the baby (yes, the baby is the "larger pieces") is tugged apart with forceps---limb from limb. That the yanking apart of a baby is considered good health care is one of the most sickening things I know. God help us. God have mercy on us. I think Sodom has nothing on us.
If the baby is approaching the third trimester or in the third trimester (viable by the way), he is too large to be pulled apart and removed piece-meal. At this point, the cervix must be dilated. The "dr" uses forceps to grasp the legs of the baby to deliver him most of the way. Then, with his body born but his head in the birth canal, the "dr" makes an incision at the base of the skull and inserts an instrument to suction out his brain, collapsing the skull and making his head easier to remove.
Yes, the baby, is literally inches from BIRTH, at which point he would have graduated from legally killable blob to legally protected patient/person.
All of this, unbelievably, is completely legal.
So, what did Kermit Gosnell do wrong if this is legal? How is what he did to babies who had successfully emerged alive any different from doing it while their heads are still in the birth canal???? Is the argument really that he is guilty of being a really inept abortionist so he had to kill them after delivery?? Those few inches mean the difference between "woman's body" and baby's murder???
Gosnell's staff are now on record describing how the babies would often be delivered alive and then killed. I will not here write about his crimes. You can begin learning about them here: http://www.lifenews.com/2013/04/12/all-american-horror-story-top-10-kermit-gosnell-trial-revelations/
These procedures are, to any honest person, nothing short of murderous slaughter of innocents.
This is too important to shrug and re-plant our heads in the sand. Millions have been brutally slaughtered.
This final photo is a baby who is also undergoing a procedure. Because his mother wants him, the procedure is to help, not murder, him.
