ABORTION METHOD USED FOR A PREGNANCY 12-15 WEEK GESTATION
Cervix is stretched open known as dilatation so that the baby can be torn from the womb.A tool known as a Uterine Currette is used
One side of the loop is sharp for cutting the live child apart. The other side of this abortion tool scrapes the uterus to remove the placenta. Piece by piece the baby arms,legs, feet and head and contents are taken out and examined.Examination is to make sure all the baby body parts are there so that nothing in left inside the womb.The last piece is the placenta is taken out anything left inside can cause an infection and if not treated death in the mother would follow.A baby is fragile at this stage of a pregnancy so each piece will come out seperately.
