On Thursday, during a House Rules and Oversight Committee hearing, pro-life Rep. Yvette Herrell (R-NM) took an abortionist to task regarding late-term abortion.
Piñon Post reports:
Regarding what procedures are specifically used in late-term abortions, Moayedi said she uses “the same techniques” as an earlier stage abortion but she uses “additional instruments,” such as forceps to break the limbs off of the older unborn baby.
Rep. Herrell then asked what specifically is the difference between an earlier stage abortion and one after 15 weeks gestation.
“We use a combination of gently dilating the cervix using medications and dilators and then removing the pregnancy using suction and instruments,” Moayedi answered.
“So these are more along the line of a dismemberment abortion,” said Rep. Herrell.
Moayedi claimed a “dismemberment abortion” is “not a medical term.”
Herrell shot back, “But it is used…. The procedure.”
“The procedure is called a dilation and evacuation,” said Moayedi.
Herrell said, “So it is equal to dismemberment.”
Herrell added, “Well, I just want to make sure that the public can understand exactly what we’re talking about because we are talking about dismembering a baby with a heartbeat.” She said, “Let’s call it what it is. I’m going to say dismemberment. You don’t have to respond to that but we all know that’s exactly what it is and people need to understand what we are talking about when we’re dismembering arms and legs of a beating heart baby.”
