Dr. Jay Kelinson, who performed the abortion in the film the silent scream:
Interviewer: How many abortions do think you performed in your career?
Dr.: I’d say I probably performed 10,000 or more. I can remember days when I would do 30, 35 abortions.
Interviewer: would you do second trimester abortions, D&E’s even for medical reasons?
Dr: No, absolutely not. that is the most horrifying procedure I can think about. There is just absolutely no way I would ever do that.
This interview was shown in Dr. Bernard Nathanson’s video “Eclipse of Reason”, which recorded a D&E abortion, which is a late-term abortion where the baby is torn apart with forceps (see image below) You can see Eclipse of Reason here.
However, whether an abortion is done in the first trimester or the second trimester or even the third trimester, a beating heart is stilled and a baby’s body is torn apart. Compare the two diagrams below – one is of a suction abortion in the first trimester, a procedure that takes place thousands of times a day in the United States alone. The second is a D&E abortion, the most common method of abortion in the second trimester – roughly one in every 10 abortions are done after the first trimester, mostly by this method – meaning it is performed hundreds of times a day.
