Ann Kirkpatrick on partial birth abortion
Torunn Sinclair | May 31, 2019

Ann Kirkpatrick says she believes abortion decisions should be between a woman and her doctor.

But does that include partial birth abortion?

As Kirkpatrick’s party continues to move to the socialist left on the issue – with the Illinois House just voting to legalize partial birth abortions – will Kirkpatrick finally say this it too far?

Or is she too afraid of a primary challenge in AZ-02?

BACKGROUND ON PARTIAL BIRTH ABORTIONS

To Conduct A Partial-Birth Abortion, The Abortionist Must Puncture The Base Of The Baby’s Skull With A Sharp Surgical Instrument. “Partial-Birth Abortion is a procedure in which the abortionist pulls a living baby feet-first out of the womb and into the birth canal (vagina), except for the head, which the abortionist purposely keeps lodged just inside the cervix (the opening to the womb).  The abortionist punctures the base of the baby’s skull with a surgical instrument, such as a long surgical scissors or a pointed hollow metal tube called a trochar. He then inserts a catheter (tube) into the wound, and removes the baby’s brain with a powerful suction machine.  This causes the skull to collapse, after which the abortionist completes the delivery of the now-dead baby.” (National Right To Life, www.nrlc.org, Accessed 5/31/19)

Once The Skull Has Been Punctured, The Abortionist Inserts A Suction Machine Into The Wound To Remove The Baby’s Brain. “Partial-Birth Abortion is a procedure in which  the abortionist pulls a living baby feet-first out of the womb and into the birth canal (vagina), except for the head, which the abortionist purposely keeps lodged just inside the cervix (the opening to the womb).  The abortionist punctures the base of the baby’s skull with a surgical instrument, such as a long surgical scissors or a pointed hollow metal tube called a trochar.
