Is This Video Changing People’s Minds About Abortion?
“I believe that’s like murder right there, what I saw.”
Over the years I’ve chatted with many a woman who was ardently pro-abortion until 1) they became pregnant or 2) they learned what actually happens during an abortion procedure.
Pro-life group, Live Action, is utilizing the latter scenario — showing pro-choicers how babies are ripped to pieces during an abortion.
Dr. Anthony Levatino, a former abortionist, explains what happens during the most common type of second trimester abortion (13-24 weeks of pregnancy), dilation and evacuation (D&E). Live Action stopped men and women on the street to show them Dr. Levatino’s account (he has a great story of his own), and not one of them left as resolutely pro-abortion as they were before seeing the video.
Many changed their minds completely.
Here’s what they saw:
Dr. Levatino and Live Action produced several other videos as part of their educational series. Those videos include aspiration abortions (performed in the first trimester), abortion pills, induction abortion (performed during the third trimester), and a lengthy interview with Dr. Levatino.
“Ending a pregnancy” sounds harmless enough if you don’t know what that entails. But when you do? Well, that’s a game changer. There’s something about the truth that’s inescapable.

Isn’t the rule of thumb in journalism that if the headline is written in the form of a question, the answer is usually “no”?
I’m a blogger, not a journalist (usually). I get to ask questions and explore them. Perks of the job.
That may be a rule of thumb in what passes for “journalism” these days, but by my experience if a blogger posts a binary (yes/no) question as a headline, the answer is usually, “Yes. Next question.”
This goes for quite a few online “citizen journalists” and “alternative news” sites, as well.
That was brutal!
Back when I was a teen who had grown up in The-Birth-Control-Crowd-Can-Do-No-Wrong family, I learned that by the fourth month, the child in the womb has a rather complete nervous system, and thus can probably distinguish her mother’s voice. It was one of those things that started me questioning and moving to the political right.
Good for you! That is wonderful!
Thanks for posting these.
I watched it to 1:17 and then I couldn’t take it anymore.
I watched it through, but I can’t rightly fault you for stopping at that point.
The rest was not pretty….
