LifesiteNews published a blogpost giving the transcript of parts of Mr. Levantino description of how he performed the Dilation and Evacuation procedure.
“Picture yourself reaching in with the Sopher clamp [an instrument for grasping and crushing tissue] grasping anything you can. At twenty-four 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 six 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.”
“You know you did it right if you crush down, a white material runs out of the cervix. That was the baby’s brains. Then you can pull out skull pieces. Many times a little face will come back and stare back at you…And if you think that doesn’t hurt, if you believe that isn’t an agony for the baby, please think again.”
People say that if abortion is illegal women will die.
It is true that some women may attempt illegal abortion. But it is within their power to not do what they do, or stop what they're doing, or if they're dumb enough to go through with it-- go to the hospital and get treated.
However, a fetus does not have any power to stop what's being done to him.
Nobody wants women to die of illegal abortion. Everybody is against the death of the woman in an illegal abortion.
The pro-choice activist, however, advocates for this. She says: The fetus has to suffer and die in the name of female empowerment? Well too damned bad. Women's rights first!
That is the difference pro-choice and pro-life.
