Family Planning Perspectives on D&E abortions

An article in Family Planning Perspectives describes D & E abortion:

“[A] physician performing a D&E must deal with the second trimester foetus in an intimate, physical way…ossified parts, such as the skull, must be crushed. The bone fragments must be extracted carefully to avoid tearing the cervix. Reconstruction of the fetal sections after removal from the uterus is necessary to ensure completeness of the abortion procedure”.

“Emotional Impact of D&E vs. Instillation,” Family Planning Perspectives, Nov./Dec., 1977.
