In this quote from a court case in New York, abortionist Dr. Timothy Johnson had been asked by Judge Richard Conway Casey whether or not he told women seeking abortions at his clinic that their babies would have their skulls punctured and brains drained during the procedure.
He said no. In the type of abortions that Johnson performed, he would suck out the brain after puncturing the skull, then crush the head and remove the baby.
Dr. Timothy Johnson would kill this child by puncturing her skull and draining her brains
THE WITNESS: I’m … not exactly sure what using terminology like sucking the brains out would —
THE COURT: That’s what happens, doesn’t it?
THE WITNESS: Well, in some situations that might happen. There are different ways that an after-coming head could be dealt with but that is one way of describing it.
