Abortionist Warren Hern Describes How to Perform Abortions

Abortionist Dr. Warren Hern, in his textbook on how to do abortions, describes the procedures a little more plainly. Here he describes a first trimester abortion. During the procedure:

“The physician will usually first notice a quantity of amniotic fluid, followed by placenta and fetal parts, which may be more or less identifiable.”

Warren Hern, M.D. Abortion Practice J.B. Lippenott Company 1984 p 114

Later he says:

“The procedure changes significantly at 21 weeks because fetal tissues become much more cohesive and difficult to dismember.”

p 154


“A long curved Mayo scissors may be necessary to decapitate and dismember the fetus.”

20 to 22 weeks

p 154

He also instructs:

“The aggregate fetal tissue is weighted, then the following fetal parts are measured, foot length, knee to heel length, and biparietal diameter”
