Abortionist: Abortion is the “Most Important Right a Woman Can Have”

The Texas legislature is considering a bill that would ban abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy and hold abortion clinics accountable for violating women’s health. The bill would put part of late-term abortion practitioner Dana Kusnir’s abortion shop out of business.

To help lobby against the bill, she is talking about abortion and her abortion facility publicly for the first time. In the interview, Kusnir says there is no right more important than abortion and she says taking the lives of unborn children is why she became a doctor.

Kusnir also uses amazing terminology to describe abortions — saying it is merely a gentle removing of the “contents” of the uterus. From the interview:

Dana Kusnir is not hiding her face, in fact, she’s offering up information about an act that is usually only talked about in whispers or on the other hand loud yells from those who oppose it.

“We basically use a series of dialater rods and then we use a suction to gently remove the contents of the uterus.”

Kusnir performs abortions at the Whole Women’s Health Clinic in McAllen which is a private facility in order to make women comfortable, but the anti-abortion clinic next door and protestors make sure it is known what happens here.

That doesn’t bother the young doctor.

“This is why I went to medical school. I was a patient advocate at first in Ohio and I figured out how important it was to provide procedures.”

She sees patients in the valley from all walks of life.

“It is really a remarkable range, abortion transcends race and age.”

And as the law stands, Kusnir is already under strict guidelines and fears for her patients if they become more stringent.

“They are very brave, all of my patients.”

Kusnir realizes she may soon be without a job in the valley if the law passes but says her concerns are with the women who won’t have a place to turn.

“It’s always struck me as one of the most important rights that a woman can have.”

One web site indicates, “Her Facebook page says she lives in NEW YORK: But there does not appear to be a license doc by that name in the state. According to the Texas Medical Board– she has a temporary license but her address is from California.”
