What is Abortion?

We're all familiar with the word... Abortion. But do you know what happens when an abortion takes place? There are three different methods: vacuum aspiration, induction or prostaglandin, and dilation and evacuation (D&E). 

Vacuum Aspiration

Typically committed: 1st trimester

Preborn age: 3-11 weeks old

The uterus is emptied by a vacuum or syringe, the baby is torn into pieces as he or she is pulled through the hose. 

Induction of Prostaglandin

Typically committed: 2nd trimester

Preborn age: 11-21 weeks old

Labor is induced in the 2nd or 3rd trimester. Saline of urea is injected to kill the child in the womb. Digoxin or potassium chloride is directly inserted into the baby's heart to guarantee the child's death. Other times the baby is delivered alive and left to die. 

Dilation and Evacuation (D&E)

Typically committed: 2nd trimester

Preborn age: 11-21 weeks old

The abortionist tears the baby's body apart with forceps. The spine is snapped, the skull is crushed, and the remains are sucked out.
