An abortionist describes a problem he has with doing second trimester D&E abortions:

“The only problem is a personnel problem. It’s an unattractive method because you have to morselate [that is, cut into small pieces] the fetus, and then remove it with forceps rather than a nice little suction catheter. The girls in the operating room don’t exactly draw straws to go in with you.”
