What is Abortion?

The killing of a child in the womb.

Abortion is the gravest mass human rights abuse of our time.

At the moment of fertilization, the entire genetic makeup of a unique human being is formed – this includes sex, eye color, and other traits. The difference between someone at fertilization, four months in utero, two years old, 17, 35, and 80 is development, aided by nutrition and time. Throughout our lives, we are constantly changing — and we get to witness a lot of these changes in ourselves and others. But our most rapid developmental milestones take place when we are still hidden from the world in our mother’s womb. And because preborn children are unseen during this crucial period, they are especially vulnerable.

Most people do not know what happens to a preborn child during an abortion. It is the deliberate, violent killing of a preborn child in the womb. It destroys this little life and wounds the mother.

There are 4 prevalent types of abortion used in our country. Surgical abortion uses instruments to dismember and extract the baby from the mother’s uterus. During a suction, or aspiration, D&C Abortion a suction catheter is inserted into the mother’s uterus to extract the preborn baby. Tools are then used to scrape the lining of the uterus to remove any remaining parts. The Abortion Pill blocks progesterone and the lining of the mother’s uterus breaks down, cutting off blood and nourishment to the baby, who then dies inside the mother’s womb. In an induction abortion, digoxin or potassium chloride is injected through the woman’s abdomen or vagina, targeting the baby’s heart, torso, or head. When the digoxin takes effect, the lethal dose causes a fatal cardiac arrest, and the baby’s life will end. The abortionist uses clamps and forceps to dismember and remove the baby piece by piece.

Nearly 1 million children’s lives are destroyed by abortion every year. Planned Parenthood is the nation’s largest abortion chain, ending the lives of over 320,000 American children every single year.

The killing of preborn children is common and protected in our country because of deliberate misinformation. Many Americans do not realize how developed preborn children are when they are aborted. They are kept in the dark about the risks abortion poses to women and they have no idea what actually happens to a preborn child during an abortion.
