Abortion methods are gruesome, barbaric

If you’ve never actually read about partial birth abortion, you need to do it.

“When a preganant woman gets close to her delivery date, the medical team induces labor and the baby is pushed from the birth canal (except for the head, which is held in the birth canal for the doctor, nurse or other team member; this allows it to be called ‘partial birth’ since the head hasn’t been born yet).” Then scissors are jabbed into the base of the infant’s skull and his brains are literally sucked out — while he’s still alive, waiting to be welcomed into the world literally within seconds.

Disgusting? Sickening? Brutal beyond belief? Yes it is, and yet they gave it a clean label such as “reproductive health” or “pro-choice.” Or, I can call it murder.

The Democrats who support “a woman’s right to choose” support this too, and they want your tax dollars to pay for it. Vote Republican. Vote out every Democrat from every office.

Editor’s Note: The procedure described above, intact dilation and extraction, was prohibited by the Partial-Birth Abortion Ban Act of 2003, which Congress passed in October 2003 and President George W. Bush signed into law. In the 2007 case Gonzalez v. Carhart, the Supreme Court upheld that law as constitutional. Partial birth abortion remains illegal in the United States except when the mother’s life is in danger.
