Family First Comment: This former abortionist wants you to see what abortion really looks like
“Although the website eschews the use of gore or “graphic images,” Lila Rose said she believes depictions of aborted children can help end abortion, something she likens to the abolitionist movement’s use of images of overstuffed ships crossing raging seas during the Trans-Atlantic slave trade.”
“I came to realize that killing a baby at any stage is wrong. I want you to know today, no matter where you’re at or what you’ve done, you can change.” – former abortionist Dr. Anthony Levatino
Lila Rose believes if Americans had to face the reality of abortion, they would become pro-life overnight. She announced last night that she has teamed up with former abortionist Dr. Anthony Levatino to launch a new website bringing the medical facts of how abortions take place to every American.
AbortionProcedures.com, which went online this morning, is precisely what it says it is. The new website features Dr. Levatino, who has performed more than 1,200 abortions, describing the most common methods of abortion as each one is depicted in animation.
“These videos were peer reviewed by doctors and medical professionals,” Lila Rose told LifeSiteNews during a call last night.
Each of the videos lasts three to four minutes and details the facts of the procedure and the medical risks associated with them.
In all, he describes four methods of abortion:
•Medical abortion – the use of RU-486 during the earliest stages of pregnancy;
•Aspiration (suction) abortion – the most common form of abortion, used during the first 12 weeks, especially 6-12 weeks of pregnancy;
•Dismemberment (dilation and extraction, or D&E) abortion – the most common form of abortion during the second trimester, in which the child is torn apart one limb at a time. Dr. Levatino practiced this method up to 24 weeks, although he said it is sometimes performed later; and
•Induction abortion – the method used during the third trimester, in which the child is injected with Digoxin, then delivered stillborn – or occasionally, alive.
