A woman who had an abortion at 36 weeks after a doctor told her the baby would not survive wrote about why she wanted them to do a partial birth abortion. A partial birth abortion is done by pulling the baby out of the mother’s body except for the head. Scissors are them jammed into the back of the baby’s skull and the brain suctioned out. Then the dead baby is removed.  It is very similar to the way Kermit Gosnell killed his babies but is done with the head inside a woman’s body. These abortions are now illegal.

“It was important to us to have Abigail come out whole, for two reasons. We could hold her. Jon and Katie could say goodbye to their sister. I know in my heart that we have healed in a healthy way because we were able to see Abigail, cuddle her, kiss her. We took photos of her. Swaddled, she looks perfect, like my father, and Jon when he was born. Those pictures are some of my most cherished possessions. …

Almost six years have passed since we lost [killed–my addition] Abigail, and not a day passes that I don’t think of her. In my heart I know I did the right thing for me and my family. Isn’t that what this is all about?” [maybe it’s also about the baby?]
