Confirms gory truth about Dilation and Evacuation abortion
By Dave Andrusko
It was a couple of years ago when we learned that Ann McElhinney and Phelim McAleer would be writing a book about convicted murderer, West Philadelphia abortionist Kermit Gosnell. The book would be published under the title, “Gosnell: The Untold Story of America’s Most Prolific Serial Killer.”
Now the movie is about to be released. Ms. McElhinney was just in Ireland as the key note speaker at the Pro Life Campaign National Conference and also penned an op-ed for the wildly pro-abortion Irish Times under the headline, “Making a film about abortion in the US opened my eyes: Listening to why people chose an abortion and what the procedure involved shocked me.”
Ireland is the midst of a ferocious battle led by the international abortion movement and its sympathizers, to eliminate the Eighth Amendment to the Irish Constitution. It reads, “The State acknowledges the right to life of the unborn and, with due regard to the equal right to life of the mother, guarantees in its laws to respect, and, as far as practicable, by its laws to defend and vindicate that right.”
The lever pro-abortionists are attempting to use to eventually gut the Eighth Amendment are babies who supposedly have “fatal fetal anomalies.” Passing laws to allow these babies to be aborted is crucial to the pro-abortionist long term strategy of turning the abortion laws of Ireland and Northern Ireland into clones of Great Britain’s abortion on demand through 24 weeks and until birth with babies diagnosed with various “anomalies.”
McElhinney begins her opinion piece by observing, “Most of what I have learned was news to me and appears to be absent from the abortion debate in Ireland.”
She wrote of interviewing abortionists and patients, learning a lot more about abortion techniques than no doubt she ever wanted to know. She learned, for example, why women have abortions and how “gory” those abortions are, early as well as late.
McElhinney quoted from Gosnell’s trial where abortionist Karen Feisullin explained what really happens in Dilation and Evacuation abortion. [“McMahon” is Gosnell’s lawyer, Jack McMahon.]
McMahon: “From what I’ve seen, and you can correct me, you obviously know more about it than I do, the evacuation process can be one where tools are used and the pieces are pulled out; right?
Dr Feisullin: “Right.”
McMahon: “And you might pull out an arm or a leg or some portion of that?”
Dr Feisullin: “Right.”
And those stories affected her. McElhinney wrote
Before I started on the Gosnell project I didn’t have an opinion on abortion, I was neutral. I appreciate the sentiments of those who think Ireland should have abortion. But they have to know that for every fatal-fetal-abnormality case there are many more cases of people who abort twins because they are inconvenient, abort girls because their culture does not value them or, like [PPFA head] Cecile Richards, because they have an idea what an ideal family is and another child would spoil that ideal.
She concludes with this wise counsel: “Ireland should vote knowing all that happens in a country where abortion is legal.”
