Abortion doctor Jennifer Gunter says they don’t ‘rip’ out babies, but they do take apart five ‘4 pound babies’ every day

After the final presidential debate and Donald Trump intense attack on abortion practices, one former abortion doctor took to Hufifngton Post to set the politician straight: they don’t “rip anything,” “we use sharp dissection and blunt dissection” and it’s a bad political strategy to attack late-term abortion.

“First of all, we don’t “rip” anything in OB/GYN. In surgery, we use sharp dissection and blunt dissection, but we don’t rip. Some women do tear during a vaginal delivery, but that’s not a doctor ripping the baby out,” wrote Dr. Jennifer Gunter. “Even with a forceps delivery, I wouldn’t call it ripping. We also don’t rip tissues during c-sections.”

Gunter defends the rarity of abortions, citing the “1.3 percent of abortions happen at or after 21 weeks and 80 percent are for birth defects” stats, but fails to convert the percentage to a raw number of: 699,502 x 1.3% = 9093 abortions after 21 weeks. If 80% are birth defects, that translates to 1,818 abortions which are not.

That means America kills nearly 2,000 babies annually which can survive outside the womb, can feel pain and are butchered with “sharp dissection and blunt dissection” not ripped out. That is Gunter’s defense.

I never thought Donald Trump could look good, but Dr. Gunter found a way.

Moreover, Gunter ignores all the direct and indirect evidence that there are far more late abortions–[after 22 weeks LMP–20 weeks fetal age] than the abortion industry lets on.

For example, when addressing the question, NRLC Legislative Director Douglas Johnson begins by noting, “Nobody has a good handle on how many late abortions are really occurring but there is growing evidence that they are far more common than most people want to think.”

Johnson’s full quote can be read on the next page. (NOTE that the CDC data doesn’t report gestational age after 21 weeks, so the total includes all of them)

Gunter manages to asset  Ob-GYNs don’t do “ripping,” telling the Huff Po audience that “a skilled practitioner can do a dilation and extraction at 32 or 34 weeks.”

32-34 weeks, a full size baby endures the following:

If all goes well, the cervix dilates and the fetus delivers. Sometimes inductions fail because you can’t always get such a premature uterus to contract. With a D and E, the cervix is dilated, with the help of medication, instruments or both, and the fetus is removed. The fetus is essentially taken apart with a D and E to fit through the dilated cervix (the cervix is dilated less with a D and E than for an induction). This is no secret to the women having the procedure. This is also no ripping; there is simply surgical technique. Women know they were pregnant before the procedure and that they were not after ― and trust me, they don’t think their doctor waved a magic wand or had a time turner.

The average weight of a “fetus” at 32 weeks is four pounds, so let’s restate this using the term “4 pound baby”:

If all goes well, the cervix dilates and the four pound baby delivers. Sometimes inductions fail because you can’t always get such a premature uterus to contract. With a D and E, the cervix is dilated, with the help of medication, instruments or both, and the four pound baby is removed. The four pound baby is essentially taken apart with a D and E to fit through the dilated cervix (the cervix is dilated less with a D and E than for an induction). This is no secret to the women having the procedure. This is also no ripping; there is simply surgical technique. Women know they were pregnant before the procedure and that they were not after ― and trust me, they don’t think their doctor waved a magic wand or had a time turner.

How does that sound?

1,818 times a year. 5 babies at day after having this done.
