Abortion textbook describes how to “extract fetal parts”

From a book on how to do abortions:

“The use of special instruments such as the Bierer or Sopher forceps, which improve the ability to crush and extract fetal parts, are recommended by some operators… The basic technique involves extracting large fetal parts and pieces of placenta with the forceps and using the suction cannula to remove fluid and smaller portions of tissue…

The obtained products must be carefully inspected at the end of the procedure because retained tissue can have greater consequences at these later stages of gestation.”

Ronald T Burkman, M.D. Handbook of Contraception and Abortion (Boston: Little, Brown, and Company, 1989) 136
