What Abortion Really Does

By pintswaquinas May 31, 2023

Many so-called “pro-choicers” have little clue about what goes on during an abortion. That’s not surprising: We’ve sanitized our language to hide its true horror.

We use words and phrases like “choice” and “terminating a pregnancy.” Those don’t sound too threatening, do they? A woman can choose an abortion just like she chooses new clothes or an item off the dinner menu. We don’t have to think about the method or what is terminated.

We need to show people just how barbaric abortion is. Here’s one point to bring up that shows the true nature of this atrocity.

A common method of abortion rips a living child to pieces.
Abortionists may use lethal injections to poison the child. That’s horrific enough, but one common procedure involves LIVE dismemberment! This method is done during the second trimester on viable babies.

The abortionists use forceps with teeth that cut through the child’s flesh down to the bone. They grip the child’s body parts and rip them off one by one. Finally, they crush the skull and remove it from the mother.

The pieces are disposed of as if they were garbage.

We need to emphasize that the child is often alive during much of this procedure. Abortionists have reported feeling the baby fighting back. Pro-choicers often claim that they support abortion so that the child won’t have to suffer in life. Yet, abortion IS suffering. Many babies can feel the pain.

Many pro-choicers don’t know about this method of abortion. That’s why we need to get the word out. We need to shock people out of their complacency.

We’re approaching the one-year anniversary of Roe v. Wade being overturned. Evangelists for the Culture of Death have redoubled their efforts to preserve abortion at all costs.

If we’re going to win this battle and create a new Culture of Life, we need to outdo their energy. Start saying those Rosaries! Do penance. Educate yourself as much as possible about abortion.

Armed with prayer and truth, we WILL continue to turn the tide in favor of life!
