Live Action releases second, more shocking abortion procedure video today; first video went viral with 11 million views in first week

ARLINGTON, VA (March 3, 2016) — After the first video of its Abortion Procedures series garnered more than 11 million views in just its first week, Live Action released its second and perhaps more shocking video today.

Live Action received hundreds of testimonials like this one about the D&E abortion video it launched last week:

But the D&E is largely a second trimester procedure, and the video also received comments like this, where minds were changed, but abortions were still thought to be acceptable in the first trimester:

“Some viewers who were horrified by the second trimester D&E abortion video said they were now convinced that abortions should only be committed in the first trimester.  This is because the abortion industry has lied to women for decades, telling them that at that stage, their babies are just ‘clumps of cells,’” said Lila Rose, president and founder of Live Action.

“This new video blows that lie wide open and will shock many people by showing that first trimester babies are not ‘clumps of cells,’ but have beating hearts and developing organs at just three and a half weeks from conception,” Rose continued.  “Tragically, that doesn’t stop abortionists from using vacuums 10-20 times more powerful than a household vacuum cleaner to tear them apart alive.  The video depicts the brutal violence first trimester abortions inflict on the tiny, fragile preborn children they destroy.”

In this new video, former abortionist Dr. Anthony Levatino exposes the brutal nature of the first trimester aspiration (suction) D&C abortion. This is the most prevalent abortion procedure in America, and is legal in all 50 states.  Approximately 700,000 babies are killed every year in this manner.

The abortion industry has gone to great lengths to hide the brutality of this abortion by rebranding it from “suction D&C abortion” to the euphemistic “aspiration abortion” to match their spa-like terminology of “gently emptying the contents of the uterus.”

“Since the video series launched one week ago, Live Action has received requests from people in countries around the world — Ecuador, Romania, China, and others — to translate the videos into their languages.  We are seeing international demand for this truth-telling tool,” said Rose.

All four videos can be viewed at  The videos are the first of their kind, featuring a former abortionist using medical animations to guide viewers through the four most prevalent abortion procedures.

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.
