Abortionist describes removing “limb” of baby

Dr. Martin Haskell, an abortionist, said the following:

“It’s not unusual at the start of D&E procedures that a limb is acquired first and that that limb is brought through the cervix … prior to disarticulation and prior to anything having been done that would have caused the fetal demise up to that point.”
