New videos might change the abortion debate

This morning, Live Action released the first in a series of groundbreaking new videos that will forever change the abortion debate in America.

Each of the four videos will show – in roughly four minutes each – what the most prevalent abortion procedures do to preborn children through medical animation. Today’s video features Dr. Anthony Levatino, a former abortionist, demonstrating and talking viewers through a D&E abortion.

This doctor has performed over 1,200 abortions. Now, he’s revealing what actually happens during a second trimester abortion procedure. This video may just change the abortion debate.

Live Action’s years of investigations have revealed the abuses and deceptions of the abortion industry. One of the worst tactics used by Planned Parenthood and other abortion facilities is a purposeful failure to inform women on the realities of abortion.

Live Action President and Founder Lila Rose explains:

From our nine years of undercover investigations, Live Action has discovered that abortionists frequently lie to women about how developed their babies are, the brutality abortion inflicts on preborn children, and the risks abortion procedures pose to women’s health and safety. No one knows more about these lies – or how to unmask them – than an abortionist.

That’s why Live Action has partnered with a former abortionist, Dr. Anthony Levatino – an OB/GYN who performed more than 1,200 abortions early in his career before becoming a pro-life champion.

In each of the Abortion Procedure videos, Dr. Levatino uses simple medical descriptions of the most prevalent abortion procedures. These innovative videos use medical animations (not graphic photos) to show the brutal injustice committed against preborn children.

Rose continued:

Our experience shows us that once people see the violent reality of what abortion does to a preborn child, it’s hard for them to justify it. This unique window into the womb dispels the myth that abortions remove “clumps of cells,” and instead shows that they kill real children with beating hearts and forming brains at just 3 1/2 weeks gestation.

Information presented in the videos is backed by peer-reviewed medical journals and has been developed and reviewed by practicing OB/GYNs, medical professionals, and former abortionists.

Rose challenged the entire abortion industry to respond to these factual, groundbreaking new videos and inform and equip women:

I’d like to challenge the abortion lobby – Planned Parenthood, NARAL, and the rest – to respond to these videos.  After seeing them, most people would have a difficult time telling a woman that abortion is ‘health care’ or ‘empowering. After seeing these videos, the public isn’t going to buy the rhetoric of the abortion lobby.  In 2016, the “war on women” and “extremist” labels just won’t work.

Watch the video above, and share it with your friends and family. Visit to find out more. Help our nation see that abortion is not just a word or a “medical procedure.” It’s a horrifically violent act that takes the lives of real, living children. For too long, women have been kept in the dark by the abortion industry about what abortion really is – but no longer.
