Dr. Anthony Levatino is a practicing obstetrician-gynecologist and a former abortionist who has performed over 1,200 abortions. The pro-life organization Live Action has posted a series of videos in which Levatino is featured describing exactly how an abortion is performed without the commonly-heard euphemisms by the left used to shield people from the grotesque reality of the procedure.
In the video below Levatino explains in detail how a second trimester dilation and evacuation (D&E) abortion is preformed via animated graphics. The video is completely truthful and incredibly hard to stomach.
AbortionProcedures.com explains, as does the video, that after the amniotic fluid is removed from the patient, “the abortionist uses a sopher clamp—a grasping instrument with rows of sharp ‘teeth’—to grasp and pull the baby’s arms and legs, tearing the limbs from the child’s body. The abortionist continues to grasp intestines, spine, heart, lungs, and any other limbs or body parts. The most difficult part of the procedure is usually finding, grasping and crushing the baby’s head. After removing pieces of the child’s skull, the abortionist uses a curette to scrape the uterus and remove the placenta and any remaining parts of the baby.”
Disturbingly, the abortionists then reassemble the baby limb by limb to make sure that “all the pieces” of the baby have been removed.
Live Action also has three other videos posted via AboritonProcedures.com: the abortion pill, “which deprives the unborn baby of blood and nourishment until it dies,” the suction D&C, “which uses a vacuum to pull the baby apart,” and “The chemical injection abortion that stops the fetal heart and causes the mother to deliver the baby stillborn a few days later.”
Live Action’s goal is to spread the word about the true horror of abortion for both the mother and baby; a truth which is shamelessly covered up by pro-abortion extremists.
Dr. Levatino himself has one of the most compelling pro-life transformation testimonies to date. In the video below, the former abortionist explains that his daughter, Heather, tragically died in his arms after being hit by a car. Dr. Levatino says that he “saw hell” through this tragic loss. When he went back to work performing abortions, he was finally struck that the remains on the table were not “goo,” they were a child. From that day to this, Levatino says he has not, nor will ever perform an abortion again.
