THE COURT. You also spell out that if you are doing an intact D&E or D&X or partial-birth abortion, whichever term is used, that that entailed a partial delivery, and then the procedure you described of inserting the scissors in the base of the skull and using a suction devise to remove the brain.
THE WITNESS. Yes, I do.
Dr. Amos Grunebaum, abortionist, in sworn testimony, National Abortion Federation, et. al. v. Ashcroft, U.S. District Court, Southern District of New York, March 30, 2004
A D&X or partial-birth abortion was performed by delivering an unborn baby almost completely and then puncturing the skull and draining the brain while only the baby’s head was still within the mother’s body.
You can read one former abortion clinic worker’s description of what she witnessed when she assisted with a partial-birth abortion.
Today, most abortions in the second trimester are done by D&E. This is also a brutal procedure that results in the dismemberment of the aborted baby. Read a former abortionist’s description or see pictures of a D&E in progress (warning: graphic) Or see a video here.Share on Facebook
