A former abortionist speaks out

A D&E abortion is the most common procedure used for mid-term pregnancies, those between 12 and 20 weeks. Here is what Dr. Tony Legation, a former abortionist, had to say about this procedure:

“The toughest part of a D&E abortion is extracting the baby’s head. The head of a baby that age is about the size of a plum and is now free floating inside the uterine cavity. You can be pretty sure you have hold of it if the Sopher clamp is spread about as far as your fingers will allow. You will know you have it right when you crush down on the clamp and see a pure white gelatinous material issue from the cervix. That was the baby’s brains. You can then extract the skull pieces. If you have a really bad day like I often did, a little face may come out and stare back at you. Congratulations! You have just successfully performed a suction D&E abortion. You just affirmed her right to choose. You just made $600 cash in fifteen minutes.”

Sadly, there are over one million abortions performed annually in the United States; close to 50 million babies have lost their lives since the passage of Roe v. Wade in 1973. I thought long and hard and prayed before posting this message. Then I recalled numbers of journals that have been posted on this site because people are outraged at the slaughter of wildlife. They stress their disdain for poachers who ravage through forests killing animals for shameful gain. I agree; there is a reason for the outcry. But there is an even greater reason for this outcry against the slaughter of baby humans. We must no longer dance around “politically correct” euphemisms that camouflage the ugly truth of abortion. We have to muster up the courage to look at it for what it really is, as described by Dr. Legation. I do not condemn or judge the women who have had an abortion, but I do question government leaders and medical personnel who make it so easy for them to do so and who profit financially from their decisions.

The three elemental rights in our country are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness, but since the passage of Roe v. Wade in 1973, those rights have been denied to close to 50 million human beings, more than have been killed in all the world wars. We must speak out for these innocent, voiceless ones, for the millions of nameless little lifeless faces staring back at us because we let it happen with our silent consent. We can’t bury our heads in the sand and refuse to look squarely at the horror of this holocaust and we must vote against any political candidates who promote it and support it. God help us all to stop the genocide!
