  • Well they deliver the baby until the head is the only thing in then they inject a needle in it's head, take a vaccum and suck it's brain out. and yes. they do squirm and wiggle around while this is being done...Their legs kick because they feel it...Sad isn't it?
    I don't understand why they don't understand the concept...If you don't want a baby keep your legs closed!

  • Why do you want to know about this? Are you considering it?

    The fact is, it is an awful procedure...but despite the propoganda spread by pro-lifers, it's a rare procedure as well. If you really want to know how it's done, you can google it. There are a million dramatic sites by pro-lifers who'd love to frighten you with the details so you can join their crusade...but the FACT is, it accounts for less than 1.4% of abortions and is almost always done when there are mitigating factors, such as a deformity that would not allow the baby to live or at least not live without excrutiating pain or deformity.

  • Its too scared for me to think let alone tell you but it seems other people have. Its just a very sick way of killing a new baby.
