My name is Dr. Anthony Levatino. I’m a practicing obstetrician-gynecologist and I’ve performed over 1,200 abortions. Today, I’m going to describe a 3rd Trimester Induced Abortion, which is performed at 25 weeks to term. At this point, the baby is almost fully developed and viable, meaning he or she could survive outside the womb if the mother were to go into labor prematurely. Because the baby is so large and developed, this procedure takes 3 or 4 days to complete. On Day 1, the Abortionist uses a large needle to inject a drug called Digoxin. Digoxin is generally used to treat heart problems, but a high enough dosage of Digoxin will cause fatal cardiac arrest. The abortionist inserts the needle with the Digoxin through the woman’s abdomen or through her vagina and into the baby, targeting either the head, torso, or heart. The baby will feel it— babies at this stage feel pain. When the needle pierces the baby’s body, and the Digoxin takes effect, the life of the baby will end. The abortionist then inserts multiple sticks of seaweed called laminaria into the woman's cervix. They will slowly open up the cervix for delivery of a stillborn baby. While the woman waits for the laminaria to dilate her cervix, she carries her dead baby inside of her for 2 to 3 days. On Day 2, the abortionist replaces the laminaria, and may perform a second ultrasound to ensure the baby is dead. If the child is still alive, he administers another lethal dose of Digoxin. The woman then goes back to where she is staying while her cervix continues to dilate. If she goes into labor and is unable to make it to the clinic in time, she will give birth at home or in a hotel. In this case, she may be advised to deliver her baby into a bathroom toilet. The abortionist then comes to remove the baby and clean up. If she can make it to the clinic, she will do so during her severest contractions and deliver her dead son or daughter. If the baby does not come out whole, then the procedure becomes a D & E, a dilation and evacuation, and the abortionist uses clamps and forceps to dismember the baby, piece by piece. Once the placenta and all of the body parts have been removed, the abortion is complete. Late-term abortions have a high risk of hemorrhage, lacerations, and uterine perforations, as well as a risk of maternal death. Future pregnancies are also at a greater risk for loss or premature delivery due to abortion-related trauma and injury to the cervix. As I mentioned at the beginning, I’m Dr. Anthony Levatino, and in the early part of my career as an OB/GYN I performed over 1,200 abortions. One day, after completing one of those abortions, I looked at the remains of a preborn child whose life I had ended, and all I could see was someone's son or daughter. I came to realize that killing a baby at any stage of pregnancy, for any reason, is wrong. I want you to know today, no matter where you’re at or what you’ve done, you can change. Make a decision today to protect the preborn. Thank you for your time. I will no longer do any more abortions. When you finally figure out that killing a baby that big for money is wrong, then it doesn’t take you too long to figure out it doesn’t matter if the baby is this big, or this big, or this big, or maybe even this big— it’s all the same. And I haven’t done any since then and I never will.
