Surgical Abortion

Surgical abortion procedures involve gruesome techniques that vary depending on the age of the unborn child. These techniques include suction aspiration; dilation and curettage (“D&C”); dilation and evacuation (“D&E”), a dismemberment abortion; and dilation and extraction (“D&X”), a partial-birth abortion. Many Americans are unaware of the types of procedures that are used to end an unborn child’s life. Many are also unaware that abortion is legal throughout all nine months of pregnancy.
