Seeing those pictures and hearing these procedures is what ultimately changed my mind from being totally pro choice to being whatever I am now.
But seriously, this is a tangent of this argument that is guaranteed to not have a happy ending, because no matter what your stance, it's a distressing thing to see and read.

Yes, it is very very distressing. But I don't think you can support a choice to do those things to a baby if you have no idea what is actually done & how the baby is actually terminated. How a d & e (or 'intact' d & e) is performed on a baby, for example. It is so so sad & a great tragedy. I tend to think that staunch pro choices really must be just ignorant to what actually happens - surely no one could support it if they knew te truth? Surely not!
I i follow the dr Seuss 'Horton hears a who' school of thought when it comes to termination - 'a persons a person, no matter how small'

If it were a healthy & viable late term baby then if the dr were just to induce labour, the baby would likely sùrvive labour as any other healthy baby would. So the baby has a lethal cardic injection or d & e or intact d & e (or partial birth) to ensure that it does not survive. It needs to have its life artificially terminated, otherwise it would be an unsuccessful abortion. I'm not talking rubbish, I think that some pro choices would rather not believe that these things actually do happen, an that is the choice that they are supporting.

Most women having an abortion find the decision difficult enough as it is. They know essentially what they're doing, do you purposely want to make it harder for them if they happen to be ignorant about the procedure.
Most people after 12/14 weeks would have the procedure explained to them. I did. It was made very clear and I was able to ask a lot of questions about it.

At the end of the day no matter how awful the vision is of how the procedures are preformed, A womans rights should never be taken away - even if she is pregant.
You can go on about the procedure all you like, it doesn't convince me that a woman shouldn't have a right to choose what happens to her own body.
