Carol Everett ran four abortion facilities and owned two before converting to the pro-life side. She has had a career as a pro-life speaker and founded the Heidi Group, which helps women with unplanned or crisis pregnancies.
She wrote a book with Jack Shaw that chronicles her time in the abortion industry. In the book is a passage where she is watching the abortionist finish a D&E abortion.
A D&E or dismemberment abortion is done by pulling the baby apart with forceps. This late-term abortion method has the baby dismembered and pulled out one piece at a time. The last step is the crushing of the baby’s detached head.
Here is a description of the procedure by Dr. Anthony Levatino, who committed over 1,200 abortions before becoming pro-life.
In the passage below, the abortionist is just about to crush the baby’s skull. Dr. Harvey Johnson is the name of the abortionist, and Leslie is another facility worker.
Dr. Johnson handed the suction tube back to Leslie and once again used forceps to probe for the head. I saw the muscles of his right arm tighten and knew what that meant: He had located the head and was crushing it. Harvey used to joke about getting tennis elbow from this technique, and his right arm was actually slightly bigger than his left.
Apparently, the crushing of a child’s skull takes quite a bit of force.
As more clinic workers come out of the abortion business, more first hand accounts of abortion will be shared. While even former clinic workers’ stories of first trimester abortions are graphic, their descriptions of D&E abortions are truly horrifying.
