Heartbreaking footage from a hearing in Maryland showed that babies aborted by dismemberment are literally torn apart, limb by limb, but ACLU attorney Rachelle Yeung testified that she doesn’t believe the procedure is inhumane at all, according to a recent report in Breitbart.
Yeung is a public policy counsel for ACLU of Maryland who refused to admit that pre-born babies feel pain. She testified against passage of a new bill titled the “Unborn Child Protection from Dismemberment Abortion Act,” which would prohibit “dismemberment” abortions from being performed primarily during the second trimester of pregnancy.
A video that showed former abortionist Dr. Anthony Levatino demonstrating a second-trimester surgical abortion in which instruments were used to dismember an unborn baby was shown to panelists testifying on the legislation.
In a graphic explanation, the doctor said, “After the amniotic fluid is removed, the abortionist uses a sopher clamp — a grasping instrument with rows of sharp “teeth” — to grasp and pull the baby’s arms and legs, tearing the limbs from the child’s body. The abortionist continues to grasp intestines, spine, heart, lungs, and any other limbs or body parts. The most difficult part of the procedure is usually finding, grasping and crushing the baby’s head. After removing pieces of the child’s skull, the abortionist uses a curette to scrape the uterus and remove the placenta and any remaining parts of the baby.”
Maryland House Delegate Sid Saab (R) addressed the attorney, who refused to admit the truth about the procedure, calling the bill a “method ban,” which she claimed would be unconstitutional.

“Even if it doesn’t ban all forms of abortion, it would ban the safest, as you’ve heard, and most common method of second-trimester abortions, which accounts for 95 percent of second-trimester abortions,” stated Yeung, who said that such laws banning ways that doctors can kill unborn babies would “create an undue burden on a woman’s ability to seek an abortion.”
Yeung noted that several other states have passed method bans, including Alabama, Louisiana, Mississippi, Oklahoma, Kansas, and West. “In four of those states, the laws have already been challenged, and, in all four, the laws have been…are currently blocked, by court order, from taking effect. So, for these reasons, we are due to issue an unfavorable report on H.B. 1167,” she explained.
Upon hearing Yeung’s response, Michele Hendrickson, eastern regional director for Students for Life of America, observed that everyone in the court room looked up from their cell phones in shock. “Everyone, that is, except for representatives from NARAL, Planned Parenthood, and the ACLU,” she noted.
In its statement against the legislation, NARAL Pro-Choice Maryland cited the World Health Organization (WHO), which published a technical guide for abortionists. “According to WHO,” NARAL states, “D&E is the safest and most effective surgical technique for later abortion.”

NARAL further stated that such legislation “prevents a woman’s right to receive abortion care in later stages of pregnancy and interferes with her ability to receive the care that will best safeguard her overall health and future fertility.”
However, in the video, the Levatino clearly explained that late-stage abortions are dangerous for women and can ruin their chances of having more children.
