In a new video, a former abortion practitioner who is now a pro-life OBGYN explains the most common abortion method or procedure used to kill unborn babies in abortions. Dr. Anthony Levatino exposes the brutal nature of the first trimester aspiration (suction) D&C abortion with the hope that a realistic explanation will convince people that abortion is wrong.

“This is the most prevalent abortion procedure in America, legal in all 50 states, and approximately 700,000 babies every year are killed in this manner. That’s nearly 2,000 every day,” Live Action president Lila Rose tells LifeNews. Her organization helped produce the video and another LifeNews focused on that explains the exact abortion methods and procedures abortion practitioners use every day to kill unborn babies.

“From our nine years of undercover investigations, Live Action has discovered that abortionists frequently lie to women about how developed their babies are, the brutality abortion inflicts on preborn children, and the risks abortion procedures pose to women’s health and safety. No one knows more about these lies – or how to unmask them – than an abortionist,” Rose said.

She continued: “That’s why Live Action has partnered with a former abortionist, Dr. Anthony Levatino – an OB/GYN who performed more than 1,200 abortions early in his career before becoming a pro-life champion.”

In each of the Abortion Procedure videos, Dr. Levatino uses simple medical descriptions of the most prevalent abortion procedures. These innovative videos use medical animations (not graphic photos) to show the brutal injustice committed against preborn children. Information presented in the videos is backed by peer-reviewed medical journals and has been developed and reviewed by practicing OB/GYNs, medical professionals, and former abortionists.

The video below profiles the common suction abortion method that kills unborn babies at 11 weeks.

“At this stage, the preborn child typically has a beating heart, developing organs, and a tiny, fragile body, yet the abortionist often employs a suction machine 10-20 times more powerful than the average household vacuum cleaner to tear apart the preborn child in utero and end its life,” Rose says.
