He performed 1,200 abortions: In new videos, he wants you to see what abortion really looks like
AbortionProcedures.com, which went online this morning, is precisely what it says it is. The new website features Dr. Levatino, who has performed more than 1,200 abortions, describing the most common methods of abortion as each one is depicted in animation.
“These videos were peer reviewed by doctors and medical professionals,” Lila Rose told LifeSiteNews during a call last night.
Each of the videos lasts three to four minutes and details the facts of the procedure and the medical risks associated with them.
There are no graphic photographs of bloody babies; all the videos consist solely of animation. Dr. Levatino’s descriptions contain little emotional fodder. His delivery is matter-of-fact, bordering on antiseptic, as he calmly describes mothers flushing their children down toilets after taking RU-486.
“The woman will often sit on a toilet as she prepares to expel the child, which she will then flush,” he says in the video on medical abortion, discussing the use of the abortion pill during the first seven weeks of pregnancy. “She may even see her dead baby within the pregnancy sac…and if she looks carefully, she might be able to count the fingers and toes.”
In all, he describes four methods of abortion:
- Medical abortion – the use of RU-486 during the earliest stages of pregnancy;
- Aspiration (suction) abortion – the most common form of abortion, used during the first 12 weeks, especially 6-12 weeks of pregnancy;
- Dismemberment (dilation and extraction, or D&E) abortion – the most common form of abortion during the second trimester, in which the child is torn apart one limb at a time. Dr. Levatino practiced this method up to 24 weeks, although he said it is sometimes performed later; and
- Induction abortion – the method used during the third trimester, in which the child is injected with Digoxin, then delivered stillborn – or occasionally, alive.
“All of these procedures are legal in this country,” Rose told LifeSiteNews. “In today’s political climate…we have political leaders who advocate for abortion up through all nine months” of pregnancy.
And the abortion industry – and its favored political candidates – want to force Americans to pay for these procedures. “Some of the leading politicians today, including politicians in the 2016 race, want to repeal the Hyde Amendment,” the law signed by President Jimmy Carter that forbids federal funding from directly subsidizing most abortions, Rose told LifeSiteNews. Both Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders have said they favor taxpayer-funded abortion-on-demand throughout all nine months of pregnancy, the official position of the 2012 Democratic Party platform.
There are also several interview segments with Dr. Levatino describing his transformation from a late-term abortionist to a pro-life advocate who has testified about his trade before Congress. “I came to realize that killing a baby at any stage is wrong,” he says. “I want you to know today, no matter where you’re at or what you’ve done, you can change.”
Although the website eschews the use of gore or “graphic images,” Rose said she believes depictions of aborted children can help end abortion, something she likens to the abolitionist movement’s use of images of overstuffed ships crossing raging seas during the Trans-Atlantic slave trade.
“We think it will have an impact on elections,” Rose told LifeSiteNews.
“From our nine years of undercover investigations, Live Action has discovered that abortionists frequently lie to women about how developed their babies are, the brutality abortion inflicts on preborn children, and the risks abortion procedures pose to women’s health and safety,” she said. “No one knows more about these lies – or how to unmask them – than an abortionist.”

FORMER ABORTIONIST USES MEDICAL ANIMATIONS TO SHOW WHAT HAPPENS TO BABY AND MOTHER DURING ABORTION
The gruesome reality of dismemberment abortion
ARLINGTON, Va. (Dr. Susan Berry) – Pro-life organization Live Action is showing a video series in which a former abortionist uses medical animations to reveal the harsh reality of abortion for both mother and baby.
The group’s goal is to cut through the pro-abortion rhetoric that speaks of “tissue masses,” “clumps of cells” and “products of conception,” especially at a time when abortion has become a major issue in the 2016 election.
The video below features former abortionist Dr. Anthony Levatino — who performed more than 1,200 abortions — using accurate medical depictions of what happens during the abortion procedure. No graphic photos of real babies are used in the series.
“I’d like to challenge the abortion lobby — Planned Parenthood, NARAL and the rest — to respond to these videos,” Lila Rose said during a web conference for media Tuesday. “After seeing the videos, most people would have a difficult time telling a woman that abortion is ‘health care’ or ’empowering.'”
Rose, president of Live Action, said her group’s nine years of video investigations have led to the realization that most of the general public is uninformed about what happens during an abortion.
“The abortion lobby masks the procedure in euphemisms,” she explained. “‘Terminating the pregnancy,’ ’tissue mass,’ ‘product of conception.’ The majority of the public has no clue about what abortion really does to a child in the womb; how developed the child actually is during an abortion; and the risks of abortion to the mother’s health and safety.”

Michael Voris talks an in-depth discussion of the true, financial cost of abortion and its effects to the United States. Catechism of the Catholic Church teaches that, “The inalienable rights of the person must be recognized and respected by civil society and the political authority. These human rights depend neither on single individuals nor on parents; nor do they represent a concession made by society and the state; they belong to human nature and are inherent in the person by virtue of the creative act from which the person took his origin. Among such fundamental rights one should mention in this regard every human being’s right to life and physical integrity from the moment of conception until death” (CDF, Donum vitae III; CCC: 2273).

CIA: The Rockefeller Foundation – Actively Undermining the Catholic Church click below:
We are used to thinking of the Rockefellers as simply a byword for wealth, power and financial success. Perhaps we might think of them as determined businessmen or see them as great philanthropists. But the truth is far different; the Rockefeller Foundation is actively undermining the Catholic Church, and in the process, attempting to erase man’s natural orientation to the eternal.
Global Warming Unmasked click below:
Are the environmental movements and groups simply devoted to laudable, correct stewardship of God’s creation, or do they have a more sinister, hidden agenda? Is “global warming” being used as an excuse for something far darker? Is the final goal of the liberal elites behind the push of junk science population control, eugenics and Gaia worship?
