Bev's Broadcast - HRTL Partial Birth Abortion #210
This is Beverly Larranaga of Hawaii Right to Life.
I want to educate you on the facts of Partial Birth Abortion.
First of all, the definition of Partial Birth Abortion is an abortion in the second or third trimester of pregnancy in which the death of the fetus is induced after it has passed partway through the birth canal.
Most partial-birth abortions are performed on healthy mothers with healthy babies. There is no obstetrical situation that requires the willful destruction of a partially delivered baby to protect the life, health or future of a woman. The procedure’s impact on a woman’s body can even put future pregnancies at risk.
At 20 weeks of gestation, the baby’s brain has the full complement of brain cells for the baby to feel prolonged and excruciating pain.
For more information on Partial Birth Abortion you can go to our web site at HRTL.
