Dismemberment Abortion (Dilation and Evacuation, or D&E) is a brutal type of abortion with the purpose of causing the death of an unborn child. The unborn child is purposely dismembered and extracted piece by piece from the uterus through use of clamps, grasping forceps, tongs, scissors, or similar instruments that slice, crush, and/or grasp a portion of the unborn child’s body to cut or rip it off.
957 second trimester abortions were performed in Wisconsin in 2015
if Wisconsin follows national statistics, that means approximately 928 unborn babies lost their lives to dismemberment abortions in one year.

What if there is an adverse prenatal diagnosis?
Abortion activists will often insist that dismemberment abortion is necessary for unborn children who are diagnosed with a disability or fetal anomaly “incompatible with life.” It is imperative that a mother in that situation be provided with the most caring and complete information possible in such difficult situations.
Did you know? Prenatal diagnoses can often be incorrect or inaccurate, unnecessarily putting pressure on a mother to procure an abortion when all she needs is more information about the diagnosed disability, resources to find perinatal hospice or other services, or more time to see if the diagnosis is correct.
Did you know? Regardless of any diagnosis received, abortion is an irreversible decision that cuts short the grieving process and deprives an unborn child of his or her right to life, which exists no matter what condition a child may have.
