These days we don’t have to speculate about what happens inside an abortion facility—the abortion industry tells us more than we could ever imagine. For example, LifeNews previously reported on an abortion clinic worker who described an abortion in vivid detail and what happens to the fetal body parts afterward.
In May, Amy Beeman shared with Salon Magazine about what she saw when an abortionist removed a baby from the safe-haven of its mother’s womb. She said, “I followed my trainer to the lab where products of conception (P.O.C.) were inspected to make sure the doctor removed all the bits that, if left behind, could cause an infection. My trainer made a point to show me the tiny arms and legs floating in the glass-baking pan. At 10 weeks and beyond, those appendages are formed and clearly recognizable.”
Now, in an article in The Guardian, an abortionist explains the unbelievable reality of what she does every single day. She writes anonymously but acknowledges that her job isn’t “popular” and even admits to avoiding eye contact with the pro-lifers on the sidewalk at her facility. The abortionist also says that it hasn’t been emotionally easy but doesn’t regret her decision to pursue being an “abortion doctor.”
She writes, “I have performed 21 abortions today, ending pregnancies in women ageing from 16 to 44, who have travelled from as far as Northern Ireland to regain control over their own bodies. I have carefully sieved through aspirate to identify the tiny translucent jelly-fish-like gestation sac at five weeks. I have painstakingly removed a fetus part by part at 23 weeks and watched the ultrasound image of the uterus shrink back to size.”
Then she goes on to explain the conclusion she’s come to about her job.
“As I leave clinic, I actually feel slightly elated from the work – I have learnt skills far beyond my expectations and I feel gratified to have been involved in helping women out in a vulnerable and sometimes desperate time. I glance back at the pro-life contingent and I wonder whether I feel guilty, or whether I should. There is a stir as a wide-eyed woman leaves the entrance of the clinic; she flinches when she sees the crowd and bows as if to hide her face. As I walk away I know these protestors have inadvertently answered my question. As long as unplanned pregnancy exists, we need to help women in this unfortunate situation, not harass them. Abortion can improve life and prevent harm; pro-choice, to me, does not mean anti-life.”
It’s hard to imagine that she’s discovered that abortion isn’t anti-life when every day, in her own words, she “painstakingly removed a fetus part by part at 23 weeks.” In an abortion after 20-weeks, we know that babies are killed just like she describes and we know that they can feel immense pain.
Former abortionist, Dr. Anthony Levatino, described the abortion procedure after 20-weeks like this: “At twenty-four weeks gestation, the uterus is thin and soft so be careful not to perforate or puncture the walls. Once you have grasped something inside, squeeze on the clamp to set the jaws and pull hard–really hard. You feel something let go and out pops a fully formed leg about six inches long. Reach in again and grasp whatever you can. Set the jaw and pull really hard once again and out pops an arm about the same length. Reach in again and again with that clamp and tear out the spine, intestines, heart and lungs.
He concludes, “The toughest part of a D&E abortion is extracting the baby’s head. The head of a baby that age is about the size of a large plum and is now free floating inside the uterine cavity. You can be pretty sure you have hold of it if the Sopher clamp is spread about as far as your fingers will allow. You will know you have it right when you crush d own on the clamp and see white gelatinous material coming through the cervix. That was the baby’s brains. You can then extract the skull pieces. Many times a little face will come out and stare back at you.”
Unfortunately, the abortionist who shared about her work in The Guardian doesn’t see the reality of what she is doing even though she can describe it perfectly. We can only hope that, like Dr. Levatino and other former clinic workers, she too will realize that what she’s doing is killing plain and simple.
