Abortionist: I Cut Unborn Babies’ Cords So They Can’t Scream

Every now and then, abortionists will admit publicly to the horrifying reality of what they do to unborn babies.

On Sunday, Leah Torres, a Utah abortionist who is active on Twitter, responded with gruesome detail to someone criticizing her work.

When someone asked Torres if she hears the screams of the babies who she aborts, she replied:

“You know fetuses can’t scream, right? I transect the cord 1st so there’s really no opportunity, if they’re even far enough along to have a larynx. I won’t apologize for performing medicine. I’m also a ‘uterus ripper outer,’ if that’s how you’d like to describe hysterectomy.”

The sickening reality of abortion that Torres callously exposed sparked an immediate backlash on Twitter.

David Daleiden of the Center for Medical Progress said Torres’s reputation as a boldly unashamed abortionist was one of the reasons why they did not do any undercover investigations in Utah.

In the undercover investigations that Daleiden and his team did pursue, they listened to abortionists talk over dinner about crushing babies’ heads, joke about babies’ eyeballs falling out and discuss pulling apart unborn babies limb by limb.

National Review editor Charles C. W. Cooke responded to Torres with a sarcastic barb about promoting herself:

Human Coalition’s Lauren Enriquez predicted that abortionists’ work one day will rank up at the top of human rights abuses, along with Nazi doctor Josef Mengele.

African pro-life advocate Obianuju Ekeocha urged Christians to pray for the conversion of abortion activists like Torres.

Abortions are brutal, gruesome procedures that kill nearly 1 million unique, living unborn babies in America every year. Recently, pro-life state lawmakers across the country have been drawing attention to the barbarity of abortion through legislation to ban dismemberment abortions.

So far, Alabama, Arkansas, Kansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Oklahoma, Texas and West Virginia have passed laws prohibiting abortionists from dismembering living unborn babies. At least as many others are working to pass similar legislation.

Just one of many abortion methods, dismemberment abortions involve “knowingly dismembering a living unborn child and extracting such unborn child one piece at a time from the uterus through the use of clamps, grasping forceps, tongs, scissors or similar instruments that, through the convergence of two rigid levers, slice, crush or grasp a portion of the unborn child’s body in order to cut or rip it off . . .” according to the National Right to Life Committee. They are common in the second trimester.
