.- In an effort to make the brutality of abortion more widely known, Father Frank Pavone, President of Priests for Life, has released a video in which he describes what he says was a common procedure used in abortion, “dilatation and evacuation.”

Showing the forceps used in abortion, Father Pavone demonstrated the abortionist’s methods.

“What happens in a dilatation and evacuation abortion is simply this: 

After the cervix has been dilated, the forceps are introduced into the uterus.  The abortionist is operating blindly here, he does not see the baby.  He goes completely by feel, and the forceps are used to grab one of the extremities of the child in this fashion…

And to pull them off, literally, this is a dismemberment abortion.  The legs are pulled off the child, the arms are pulled off, the rest of the body is taken out piece by piece, and then the head is crushed and the contents of the head come out as well.”

Abortionist Martin Haskell describes the procedure this way:

“When the procedure is started, we know the fetus is still alive, either because we can feel it move… or we actually see a heartbeat as we're starting the procedure.

“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…”

"When you're doing a dismemberment D&E, usually the last part to be removed is the skull itself and it's floating free inside the uterine cavity... rather like a ping-pong ball floating around…”

The surgeon is using his forceps to reach up and grasp something that's freely floating and is quite large…”
“So typically there's several mis-directions, mis-attempts to grasp. Finally at some point either the instruments are managed to be placed around the skull or a nip is made out of some area of the skull that allows it to start to decompress. And then once that happens, the skull is brought out in fragments rather than as a unified piece..."

Father Pavone said that diagrams and written descriptions of abortion procedures from medical textbooks and abortionists can be obtained at the Priests for Life website, which is located at www.priestsforlife.org.

“Some people think that because I am a priest saying these things, that this is all just religious belief.  My friends, I have just described to you what an abortion is.  If I take off my collar and describe to you what an abortion is, I will be saying exactly what I just said,” he reasoned in the video.

“The legs and the arms of the baby are torn apart, and the head is crushed.” “This is not just about religion, this is about what an abortion actually is,” Father Pavone said.

In the video, Father Pavone also displayed ads from a yellow pages business directory advertising abortions performed up to 26 and even 28 weeks into a pregnancy.  He said some abortionists are known to perform abortions 32 weeks and later into a woman’s pregnancy.

“If we’re going to talk about abortion in this country, let’s make sure we know what we’re talking about,” Father Pavone said.

“And let’s work to bring it to an end.”
