During a heated committee hearing in the U.S. House Rules and Oversight Committee chaired by Rep. Carolyn Maloney (D-NY), Congresswoman Yvette Herrell (R-NM-02) took a radical Texas abortionist, Dr. Ghazaleh Moayedi, to task for the killing of babies in the womb in late-term abortions.
Herrell said, “I come from a state — the State of New Mexico — where obviously late-term abortion is alive and well. I don’t support that, but what I do want to ask you [are] specific questions about the procedure as a whole. Is it true that abortion procedures change based on the gestational age and size of the unborn child?”
Moayedi tried to dodge the question by answering a previous question, but Herrell said, “No, thank you. Please answer my question.”
“So, abortion procedures are individualized to the person, where they’re at in the pregnancy, their unique medical circumstances, and the setting in which we’re providing the [abortion].”
Regarding what procedures are specifically used in late-term abortions, Moayedi said she uses “the same techniques” as an earlier stage abortion but she uses “additional instruments,” such as forceps to break the limbs off of the older unborn baby.
Rep. Herrell then asked what specifically is the difference between an earlier stage abortion and one after 15 weeks gestation.
“We use a combination of gently dilating the cervix using medications and dilators and then removing the pregnancy using suction and instruments,” Moayedi answered.
“So these are more along the line of a dismemberment abortion,” said Rep. Herrell.
Moayedi jumped in claiming, “That is not a medical term.”
Herrell shot back, “But it is used…. The procedure.”
“The procedure is called a dilation and evacuation,” said Moayedi.
Herrell said, “So it is equal to dismemberment.”
The doctor once again claimed the term Herrell used is “not a medical term,” despite that being what happens in the late-term abortion: dismembering a baby in the womb — which is an incredibly painful and excruciating death for the unborn child.
Herrell said, “Well, I just want to make sure that the public can understand exactly what we’re talking about because we are talking about dismembering a baby with a heartbeat.” She added, “Let’s call it what it is. I’m going to say dismemberment. You don’t have to respond to that but we all know that’s exactly what it is and people need to understand what we are talking about when we’re dismembering arms and legs of a beating heart baby.”
The same abortionist claimed abortion is a“blessing” and an“act of love.”
