Abortion is the medically induced, premature death of a pre-born baby in the womb. There are several methods used:

Suction Aspiration

The method of abortion most commonly used in first trimester abortions. A powerful vacuum suction tube is put into the dilated uterus. The suction tears the soft baby apart and removes it from the uterus.

Dilation and Curettage (D&C)

The dilation of the cervix which permits the insertion of a sharp surgical instrument will be used to dismember the baby’s developing body.

Dilatation and Evacuation (D&E)

Used after 12 weeks, this method is identical to the D&C method except that forceps are used to twist and tear away the body that now has calcified bones.

Salt Poisoning (Saline Injection)

Used after 16 weeks. A long needle is inserted into the mothers abdomen into the baby’s sac. The baby breathes in swallowing the deadly toxin and is poisoned. The mother delivers a dead or dying baby.


Hormones, developed by the Upjohn Pharmaceutical Co., are injected into the amniotic sac to induce contractions. In an article about this method, one of the complications listed was ‘live birth’.


Similar to a Cesarean Section, this method employed by abortionists almost always results in a live birth. The baby is left to die by neglect or direct art.

Dilatation and Extraction (D&X)

By pulling on the baby’s legs with forceps, the legs are delivered, followed by the torso, arms and shoulders. The baby’s head ‘usually’ remains inside the uterus. Using blunt-tipped surgical scissors, the baby’s skull is pierced where a suction catheter is inserted to extract the ‘skull contents.’ Fetal brains and organs are used for fetal ’tissue’ experimentation.

No Safe Abortions

There is no such thing as “a safe legal abortion.” Abortion is a decriminalized crime against humanity.

Many women often experience debilitating physical and psychological complications. As Christians, we know Jesus Christ will forgive us of all confessed and repented sin. Unfortunately, some women and men have a hard time forgiving themselves and are thus hindered in their growth.
