First Lady Michelle Obama has known what it feels like to carry life in her womb–twice. Yet she defends a monstrous procedure called partial-birth abortion, in which a live, late-term baby is drawn from the womb feet first by forceps and stabbed in the neck with scissors to make a hole through which the brains can be suctioned out and the skull collapsed before final delivery (so that the baby will be dead before becoming a person whose “right to life” is protected under our Constitution).
This procedure is legal in many parts of this country up until the moment of natural birth.
Here is a fund-raising letter Mrs. Obama sent out on behalf of her husband’s campaign in 2004, calling partial-birth abortion a “legitimate medical procedure” and attempts to ban it a “cynical ploy. . . to intimidate. . . physicians.”
|Guided by ultrasound, the abortionist grabs the baby’s leg with forceps.|
|The baby’s leg is pulled out into the birth canal.|
|The abortionist delivers the baby’s entire body, except for the head.|
|The abortionist jams scissors into the baby’s skull. The scissors are then opened to enlarge the hole…|
|The scissors are removed and a suction catheter is inserted. The child’s brains are sucked out, causing the skull to collapse. The dead baby is then removed.|
Legitimate medical procedure?
