It Speaks for Itself...

Louisiana became the first state in the Union to make this late term abortion procedure illegal. The following quotes are from a couple of news articles concerning the Louisiana law. Here's hoping other states will follow suit quickly. Please note, the law does allow for the procedure if the mother's life is in danger.

I am glad I don't have pictures to attach. The description speaks for itself.

"Anti-abortion activists call the procedure "partial-birth abortion;" surgeons and abortion rights activists call it "dilation and extraction." It involves partially removing the fetus intact from a woman's uterus, then crushing or cutting its skull to complete the abortion." Fox News

"The procedure at issue is generally used only to end pregnancies in the second or third trimesters. It involves pulling the fetus through the birth canal and then collapsing the skull before extraction." Times-Picayune, New Orleans
