This video is from the 1990s, but abortions are still being performed today by the thousands at the same gestational ages as the ones in these videos. With the advent of the abortion pill, it is no longer true that abortions cannot be done before the sixth week. The majority of abortions, however, are done later. Hundreds of abortions a day are done after the 8th week, when the baby is fully formed with arms, legs, fingers, and toes. I apologize for the poor quality of the audio. The pictures of the abortion protesters you see in the video our from “rescues”, which took place in the 1990s, when groups of antiabortion protesters blocked clinics, engaged in sit ins and tried to prevent women from having abortions. Sometimes they succeeded in closing clinics are turning women away, but more often than not, the women simply reschedule their appointments. Abortion protester seldom block clinics now, partly because of new laws that give extremely lengthy sentences to antiabortion protesters who try to block the door of the clinic.
I apologize that the quality of the video is not great. The images you see of abortion protesters being manhandled by police come from the “Rescues” that anti-abortion protesters used to participate in in the early 1990s, where the protesters would conduct sit ins in front of clinics in an effort to prevent women from getting their abortions.
What do you think? Were the police justified in treating abortion protesters that way? Should these abortions be allowed? How did the video make you feel? Leave a comment.Share on Facebook
