Abortion is many, many things.
It is painful.
It is cruel.
It is a tragedy.
It is the source of harm for countless women, men, and families.
It is the cause of death for millions of innocent children.
More specifically, though, if you want to hear true, accurate descriptions of abortion from those who have been there - women who've experienced abortions and abortion doctors and clinic workers - you should follow the Expose Abortion project. (There are other descriptions of abortion here that are worth reading, for those who want very detailed information.)
I've written a whole article about the Expose Abortion project for Live Action. You can read it here. This project exposes abortion by revealing truth from the inside. Below are just a few of the project's quotes, most from abortion doctors and clinic workers:
was helping the doctor hold the baby [to keep it in the birth canal]. The other nurse got the instrument [a large syringe with a large needle], handed it to the doctor, and he inserted it into the base of the skull. Then he pulled the baby out. Its little hands were grasping. When the baby quit grasping, then he delivered it. He used the syringe to suction out the brains.

It [abortion] goes against all things which are natural. It’s a termination of a life, however you look at it.

And typically when the abortion procedure is started we typically know that the fetus is still alive because either we can feel it move as we’re making our initial grasps or if we’re using some ultrasound visualization when we actually see a heartbeat as we’re starting the procedure.

You can see a miniature person… as a physician… I am destroying life.

I was finally able to remove the head and look squarely into the face of a human being…a human I had just killed.

I have taken the lives of innocent babies and I have ripped them from their mother’s wombs with a powerful suction machine.
