For those who are unfamiliar with partial birth abortion, it is a "medical procedure" where a viable fetus is dragged out of the uterus with a forceps, then a pair of scissors is jammed into the back of the Baby's skull, and then a catheter sucks the brains out. This clearly is unsafe for the baby.
Well, partial birth abortion is clearly unsafe for the baby involved but it can also be unsafe for the mother. Anytime labor is induced there is a safety issue involved. Drugs are given to induce labor and sometimes these drugs can have negative effects on the mother. Partial birth abortions can be very unsafe.
Partial birth abortions are safe if they are done by a qualified and experienced medical professional. Contrary to popular belief, a partial birth abortion is performed when a fetus is not alive and cannot survived outside of the womb. After the first 12 weeks of pregnancy, it is possible that a woman would discover a medical condition caused by her pregnancy or medical conditions, including death, of the fetus may be discovered.
