Common Sense Conspiracy is not a political site, and the following information is not intended to necessarily sway your position on the practice of abortion one way or the other. We are not here to push our own platform, although each of us here at the CSC have our own personal convictions regarding this age-old debate. While it might be fairly easy to see where we tend to stand on this issue after reading this article, still, the intention is not to affect your point of view. However, we do believe that those that are not educated on the topic of abortion probably are not up-to-date on exactly how they are performed.
Abortion is a dirty word for some, a rallying point for others. Whatever your point of view, our point is that the actual procedure itself rarely comes under scrutiny. We use a simple word, “abortion,” to define this procedure, but how many of us really understand what an abortion is and how doctors are able to make this happen without harming the mothers? While this is a very intensive topic, most abortions fall under six different categories. We will now briefly examine each of them:
1. Suction — This is the first one because is the most commonly used in our world today. It is also referred to as vacuum aspiration. A suction tube is inserted into the womb through the dilated cervix. A strong vacuum attached to the suction tube pulls the placenta from the uterus. The body of the developing fetus is dismembered and mutilated, the pieces of it sucked out of the womb and into a waiting jar. The doctor must be very careful to remove all body parts. If anything is left behind, infection or hemorrhage can occur, causing major health problems for the mother.
2. Dilation and Curettage — Commonly called a “D&C,” the doctor uses a steel knife shaped in a loop to penetrate the womb through the dilated cervix. The knife scrapes the uterus walls, cutting the baby up. There is much bleeding. To make sure that all body parts are successfully recovered, the abortionist actually uses the body parts to reassemble the baby. This way they know that all the parts were retrieved.
3. Dilation and Evacuation — The “D&E” is opted for when the baby is farther along in development. Forceps are used to grab the body of the child. Then, the baby is literally pulled apart as the doctor twists the forceps and eventually cuts the placenta loose. Considered one of the safer options for the mother, the classic “D&E” tends to be frowned upon because the doctors and nurses simply find the procedure to be the most gruesome. Some doctors refuse to perform the “D&E” on “principle.”
4. Salt Poisoning — A saline injection is the second most common abortion tactic. The doctor uses a very long needle inserted through the mother’s abdomen to inject saline into the amniotic sac around the baby. The baby then swallows the solution, which causes its skin to disintegrate. The whole process takes about sixty minutes. Once the child has passed, the mother actually goes into labor and gives “birth” to the dead baby. Some tough babies actually survive the poisoning. Imagine the mother’s surprise when the baby comes out alive.
5. Hysterotomy — This procedure is used when the baby is very near full development. It is also a last-ditch effort if the baby survives other methods. A surgery very similar to the Cesarean section is performed, and the baby is removed. At that point, the baby is killed, either by simply neglecting its needs or something even worse to think about.
6. Prostaglandin Abortion — First, salt is injected to get the process started. Then, prostaglandin is shot into the amniotic sac. This hormone induces labor. This is one of the least effective methods, and is only performed in full-fledged hospital environments. The threat to the mother is much greaters, because the injection of prostaglandin can cause cardiac arrest in some cases.
There are plenty of pictures out there of abortions that we could have bombarded our viewers with. We decided that they were too graphic to show here, but we encourage you to investigate on your own if you are interested.
