Physiology of Abortion

More and more people who are pro-abortion are abandoning the “safe, legal, rare” mantra and replacing it with “abortion is healthcare,” in attempts to make abortion normal. Abortion is not normal, nor is it healthcare. Killing humans isn’t healthcare. Abortion causes traumatic injury resulting in cardiac arrest of a new human being.

Do you know what is normal? Conception and pregnancy. Conception is a natural biological event that occurs through sexual reproduction when a sperm fuses with an egg in a fallopian tube. Pregnancy is where that new human, now referred to as a blastocyst, implants in the uterine wall where he or she receives nutrients.

That’s science, folks. If you’re religious, that’s how the human body was designed. If you’re not religious, that’s how the human body came to be. The physiology of the human female reproductive system naturally prepares women for pregnancy every month. This isn’t a malicious design of the patriarchy. It is a biological fact.

The embryonic cardiovascular system starts to develop early on, at the beginning of the third week gestation. Why is this important? The growing human needs oxygen and nutrients to live, grow, and expel wastes like carbon dioxide. The heart pumps blood through the blood vessels throughout the embryo’s body in order to accomplish this. Pro-abortion media will tell you “Oh it’s not really a heart,” and they use jargon like “cardiac activity” or “fetal pole” to make it sound like the unborn human doesn’t have the most basic signs of life, the heartbeat. THEY ARE LYING TO YOU. Of course, the human heart doesn’t have four chambers at such an early age of development. But that doesn’t negate that this forming organ is functioning how it should, pumping blood to and from the body to receive oxygen and nutrients and expel wastes. According to The Developing Human: Clinically Oriented Embryology, a college textbook, “By the end of the third week, the blood is circulating, and the heart begins to beat at approximately day 22.”

Abortion, being touted by the abortion industry as “essential healthcare”, intentionally kills this unborn human. In a medical abortion, the mother takes two pills. The first, mifepristone, blocks progesterone, an essential hormone in pregnancy. Progesterone is responsible for maintaining the lining of the uterus during pregnancy, promoting proper growth of blood vessels and secretion of nutrients, creating a rich and necessary environment for the embryo to live and grow. Mifepristone is a progesterone receptor antagonist. This means that mifepristone blocks progesterone receptors from receiving progesterone. As this happens, the uterus begins to become a hostile environment for the embryo, and the embryo stops receiving the essential nutrients for his or her life, anddies. This is nutrient starvation. The second pill, misoprostol, is used to induce labor through inducing and increasing the amplitude and frequency of uterine contractions. The first pill kills the new human through nutrient starvation and the second pill induces the birth of the newly created and now deceased human.

Apart from third trimester abortions, the other forms of abortion, surgical abortion, results in severe injury and dismemberment, leading to a traumatic (from trauma) death. In a suction D&C (dilatation and curettage), the embryo or fetus is rapidly torn apart by the force of a suction catheter at the entrance of the uterus. During a D&E (dilatation and evacuation) abortion, a suction catheter removes the amniotic fluid, then the baby is torn apart by clamps, removing the limbs and torso. Finally, the head is crushed and then removed. In third trimester abortion, the fetus in injected with digoxin, which leads to an intentional cardiac arrest. The dead fetus is then delivered. Birthed.

This is the kind of “healthcare” abortionists provide. This is not healthcare at all. This is homicide. And this needs to end. We need to be responsible for ending abortion. The religious and philosophical communities have been doing a great job at creating a defense for unborn sons and daughters. And medical organizations like the American Association of Pro-Life Obstetricians and Gynecologists (AAPLOG) have also done a great job at medically proving the humanity of the unborn. Now it is time for the entire medical community to acknowledge and support human life in the womb. American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) is a leading organization for women’s health, yet they wholesale endorse the killing of humans in the womb. OB/GYNs killing sons and daughters, when they should be protecting and treating them, advocating for their health and well-being instead of intentionally causing their cardiac arrest and destroying their tiny bodies.

Now is the time to hold the medical community to a greater standard.
