On Saturday, comedic actor Jim Carrey posted gruesome artwork he created to promote abortion — but his picture only acknowledged the real horrors of the life-ending procedure, underscoring pro-lifer’s opposition to abortion.
Carrey created an image of Alabama Governor Kay Ivey, a Republican, being murdered in the womb via abortion. The unborn child, with the head of Ms. Ivey, is being injected in the brain with poison, just as an unborn baby during an abortion procedure would be.
"I think If you’re going to terminate a pregnancy, it should be done sometime before the fetus becomes Governor of Alabama," the comedian captioned the photo.
Ivey signed the Alabama Human Life Protection Act into law on Wednesday. The law is the strictest pro-life legislation in the nation, outlawing all abortion in the state, except in cases where the life of the mother is in danger, and targeting third-party abortionists with life in prison for carrying out illegal abortions.
As illustrated by Carrey, D&C first-trimester surgical abortions — the most common procedure — includes sucking the unborn baby out of the mother's womb by a suction catheter.
Third-trimester abortions are gruesome, too. They involve injecting a viable pain-capable unborn baby with a lethal dose of digoxin, causing fatal cardiac arrest.
Describing the procedure in a video for pro-life site Live Action, practicing obstetrician-gynecologist and former abortionist Dr. Anthony Levatino notes that babies in the third trimester are "almost fully developed and viable, meaning he or she could survive outside the womb if the mother were to go into labor prematurely. Because the baby is so large and developed, the procedure takes three or four days to complete.”
"On day one, the abortionist uses a large needle to inject a drug called Digoxin," the doctor explains. The drug is either injected into the baby’s head, torso, or heart by a needle to the mother’s abdomen. "The baby will feel it," Levatino says. "Babies at this stage feel pain."
After the mother’s cervix is opened with sticks of seaweed called laminaria, she is induced to give birth to her dead baby.
"While the woman waits for the laminaria to dilate her cervix, she carries her dead baby inside of her for two to three days," he explains. "On day two, the abortionist replaces the laminaria and may perform a second ultrasound to ensure the baby is dead. If the child is still alive, he administers another lethal dose of Digoxin."
If the woman cannot make it to the clinic to give birth to her dead child, she might be advised to give birth to the child on a toilet, he notes. If the mother does make it to the clinic, but the child does not fully come out, a dilation and evacuation procedure must be performed, meaning "the abortionist will use clamps and forceps to dismember the baby piece by piece," Levatino says. "Once the placenta and all the body parts have been removed, the abortion is complete."
Pro-lifers noted that Carrey's attempt to bolster the pro-abortion side backfired greatly:
