Here’s a fact about abortion: the later it happens, the fewer people support it.
This isn’t surprising. You can say a fetus is only “a blob of tissue,” but certain things make that hard to believe: A heartbeat does, and it starts less than a month following conception. So do fingers at eight weeks and fingerprints at ten.
It gets even harder: research indicates a baby can feel pain at twenty weeks, by which point a majority of both men and women want to see abortion banned. The little guy pictured below is named Trevor Frolek, and he was born just three weeks after that.
As you look at Trevor, you might be wondering, “Who would kill a child at 23 weeks?” You should probably ask Dr. Deborah Nucatola.
She’ll do it at 24.
Nucatola is the Senior Director of Medical Services at Planned Parenthood Federation of America, America’s largest abortion chain. She also performs late-term abortions, something she was heard discussing last year.
The Center for Medical Progress (CMP) released undercover footage of her meeting with people claiming to be fetal tissue purchasers. At 3:43 in the clip above, Nucatola describes how she can abort children but still harvest their organs:
We’ve been very good at getting heart, lung, liver, because we know that, so I’m not gonna crush that part, I’m gonna basically crush below, I’m gonna crush above, and I’m gonna see if I can get it all intact.
Planned Parenthood claims CMP’s footage was deceptively edited and those statements taken out of context. Forensic analysis has confirmed the audio wasn’t doctored. As for the context, let’s ask a question: In what context would Dr. Nucatola’s words make sense other than during a description of how she does abortions? If you’re still not convinced, compare them to what Dr. Anthony Levatino says.
Dr. Levatino is an obstetrician-gynecologist who’s done over 1,200 abortions, and in the video below, he explains how a second trimester abortion procedure called dilation and evacuation (D&E) is performed:
After the amniotic fluid is removed, the abortionist uses a sopher clamp — a grasping instrument with rows of sharp “teeth” — to grasp and pull the baby’s arms and legs, tearing the limbs from the child’s body.
The abortionist continues to grasp intestines, spine, heart, lungs, and any other limbs or body parts. The most difficult part of the procedure is usually finding, grasping and crushing the baby’s head.
After removing pieces of the child’s skull, the abortionist uses a curette to scrape the uterus and remove the placenta and any remaining parts of the baby.
Some contend late-term abortions are only done out of medical necessity–but that isn’t true. Examples of other reasons are easy to find.
Gary Cross took his thirteen year-old stepdaughter pregnant, to Planned Parenthood after getting her pregnant. Despite the girl being well below the age of consent, Planned Parenthood arranged an abortion at 20 weeks. With the evidence gone, Cross was free to keep on abusing her.
If you’re troubled by how Planned Parenthood “crushes” children like Trevor Frolek, this probably won’t make you feel any better: every year, it receives over half a billion of your tax dollars.
Tell Congress that money should go to federally qualified health centers (FQHCs) and community health centers (CHCs) instead. While FQHCs and CHCs don’t dismember children, they do offer affordable care, including five hundred thousand mammograms annually. That’s about five hundred thousand more than Planned Parenthood.
Another good move? Back legislation to protect pain capable children. By 20 weeks, even many who support abortion recognize a child’s humanity. The law should too.
