Obviously the pro-abortion groups -- under the Orwellian banner of "reproduction rights" -- oppose the ban. Lawsuits are likely. But it is a major operation and a disturbing one. While the baby might not be viable outside the womb at that point in the pregnancy, the baby may already be kicking the mother.
It is a pretty awful procedure. From Web MD, the doctor will:
Pass a hollow tube (cannula) into the uterus. The cannula is attached by tubing to a bottle and a pump that provides a gentle vacuum to remove tissue in the uterus. Some cramping is felt during the rest of the procedure.
Pass a grasping instrument (forceps) into the uterus to grasp larger pieces of tissue. This is more likely in pregnancies of 16 weeks or more and is done before the uterine lining is scraped with a curette.
Use a curved instrument (curette) to gently scrape the lining of the uterus and remove tissue in the uterus.
Use suction. This may be done as a final step to make sure the uterine contents are completely removed.
Give you a medicine to reduce the amount of bleeding from the procedure.Dr. Tony Levatino, a former abortionist who is now pro-life, gave a more detailed account.
Pretty much, it is as described: Dismemberment.
WebMD described post-abortion reactions:
Irregular bleeding or spotting for the first 2 weeks. During the first week, avoid tampons and use only pads.
Cramps similar to menstrual cramps, which may last from several hours to a few days, as the uterus shrinks back to its non-pregnant size.
Emotional reactions for 2 to 3 weeks. After an abortion, it is normal to feel relief, sadness, grief, or guilt. Hormonal changes during pregnancy can make emotions stronger than usual.I think Kansas did a favor to the women of Kansas. Of course, they can always go to one of 49 other states for this procedure.
