"Do-It-Yourself" Abortions

Thanks to the miracle of of the Internet, you too can be an abortionist. And you don't even need a medical degree!

"Molly" explains the entire procedure in detail on her blog:
    The first step is to break the membrane holding the fetus inside. You can feel around with the forceps for it. To get an idea of what each part looks like—and to see the texture so that you understand better how it will feel—I recommend looking at books with photographs of first trimester fetuses (personal recommendation for its astonishing photographs: A Child is Born), The membrane should be easily broken with the forceps. Depending on how far along the pregnancy is, varying quantities of clear or pinkish fluid may come from the vagina. As you grasp the sac with your forceps, twist it away so that it detaches. You will now need to remove small pieces of fetal material and membrane from the uterus with the forceps. Some of these pieces will be distinctly identifiable as fetal material. Save the material until the end of the procedure on a piece of plastic, so that you can be sure the entire fetus has been removed. If doing this sounds too ethically challenging, remember that fetuses do not have the capacity to feel actual pain until the third trimester. You are not "hurting" it, and it has no awareness, nor the capacity for awareness, that you are extracting it.
It is truly a sad day when women start turning to online blogs to learn how to kill their children in the convenience of their own home. Have we really reached that point? If the idea of parenthood (yes, I'm including the men on this) is so repugnant to some people, why jump into bed in the first place? Are a few moments of pleasure worth all this trouble?

And why resort to a "do-it-yourself" abortion? Wouldn't it be easier to just wait until right after the baby is born? Oh, but wait...that would be murder. It has to be ripped apart in utero for it to be considered "civilized."

Take it from someone who is in the process of adopting. These children that are being disposed of are wanted. Perhaps not by the men and women who created that life, but by people willing to give them loving homes.

For more on the significance of the act of abortion itself, see my essay "An Unholy Sacrament for an Inhuman Race."
