Letter: Abortion's horrifying reality make opposition necessary

Reality of abortion is awful

EDITOR: Lon Newman's recent guest column on reproductive bullying represents a new low in what passes for journalism these days. Some folks follow the Biblical directive to defend the most defenseless among us. We do it by legitimate and peaceful means. To call us bullies is incredibly offensive.

It might be helpful if we actually described an abortion. "They took a fetuscope, a large optical instrument with a lens on one end and a strong light at the other. They inserted the fetuscope into the womb of a woman at 19 and a half weeks and a camera was clamped to the eyepiece and the abortionist went to work. This procedure was known as 'D and E.' It involves dilating the cervix, rupturing the bag of waters, taking a large crushing instrument high into the uterus, grabbing a piece of the baby and pulling it off the baby, and just repeating the procedure until the baby has been pulled apart piece by piece. Then the pieces are assembled on a table, put together like a jigsaw puzzle, so the abortionist can be sure the entire baby has been removed. We photographed all of this through the fetuscope. This is a shattering film."

The above is a quote from Bernard Nathanson, once a cofounder and top strategist of the abortion rights movement who became committed to the cause of ending legalized abortion in America. Many others have switched sides after becoming aware of the truth. Another example is Carol Everret, featured in the documentary "Blood Money."
