Unborn babies react

Ultrasound technology shows that unborn babies at 20 weeks and earlier react physically to outside stimuli such as sound, light and touch.

Surgeons entering the womb to perform corrective procedures on unborn children have seen babies flinch, jerk and recoil from sharp objects and incisions.

If unborn babies react to sound, light and touch and to sharp objects and incisions, think what they must feel when their limbs are torn from them in a dilation and evacuation (D&E) abortion procedure.

The U.S. Supreme Court (in its 2007 Gonzalez v. Carhart decision) describes the D&E procedure as follows: β€œThe doctor grips a fetal part with the forceps and pulls it back through the cervix and vagina, continuing to pull even after meeting resistance from the cervix. The friction causes the fetus to tear apart. For example, a leg might be ripped off the fetus as it is pulled through the cervix and out of the woman. The process of evacuating the fetus piece by piece continues until it has been completely removed.”

Again, think what the unborn baby must feel, during a D&E abortion procedure. The D&E procedure is the most common abortion procedure used after the first trimester of pregnancy.
