From a book on late term abortions:
“The two physicians who performed the D&E procedures…felt technically competent, but noted strong emotional reactions during or following the procedures, and occasional disquieting dreams.”
‘Second Trimester Abortion: Perspectives After a Decade of Experience” (Berger, Brenner, Keith, eds, Martinus Nijhoff Publishers, 1981), in the chapter “Psychological Impact on Patients and Staff,” p. 246.
In a D & E, performed mainly in the 2nd trimester, the baby is torn apart with forceps.
Here is a diagram of the procedure

It is easy to see why abortionists have nightmares!
