Judge Casey Requests Layman’s Terms
In New York, U.S. District Judge Richard C. Casey has refused to allow clinical language, forcing witnesses instead to graphically describe the brutal details of this horrendous procedure.
Jay Sekulow, chief counsel for the American Center for Law and Justice, was on hand to witness this trial.
“The testimony of these abortion providers unlocks the door to a secret world of torturous death that includes dismemberment and decapitation of unborn children,” recounts Sekulow.
Judge Casey Probes into the Horror of PBA
On March 31, an anonymous abortionist testified about a mid-term abortion. “What they did, they delivered the fetus intact until the head was lodged in the cervix. Then they reached up and crushed it. They used forceps to crush the skull.”
Judge Casey asked, “Like a cracker that they use to crack a lobster shell?”
The doctor responded, “Like the end of tongs you use to pick up a salad, except they are thick enough and heavy enough to crush the skull.”
“Except in your case you are not picking up a salad, you are crushing a baby’s skull,” the judge added. “The fetus is still alive at this point?”
“Yes, sir,” the doctor answered.
“Were the feet moving?” Judge Casey probed.
“Yes, sir, until the skull was crushed.”
Judge Casey Reveals Selective Language with Patients
At one point, Judge Casey asked Dr. Timothy Johnson, a University of Michigan research scientist, if abortionists inform a woman that the partial-birth abortion procedure includes “sucking the brain out of the skull.”
“I don’t think we would use those terms,” Dr. Johnson responded. “I think we would probably use a term like ‘decompression of the skull’ or ‘reducing the contents of the skull.’”
Judge Casey sarcastically asked, “Make it nice and palatable so that they wouldn’t understand what it is all about?… It is so much nicer to say it that way?”
Abortionist Hides Behind Complex Terminology
On April 5, he listened to the testimony of a witness provided by the National Abortion Federation. Casey asked, “Do you discuss the killing of a fetus?”
“I tell them that when I cut the umbilical cord of the fetus, the fetus exsanguinates,” responded the abortionist.
“Exsanguinwhat?” the judge quickly inquired.
“In layman’s terms, it would be drained of blood,” the abortionist explained.
Judge Casey asked, “Do you tell them that?”
Doctors Testify that Unborn Babies Can Feel Pain
In Nebraska, Dr. Kanwaljeet Anand, a pediatrician from the University of Arkansas, testified that the unborn children killed by this procedure have endured “severe and excruciating” pain.
“I believe the fetus is conscious. The physiological responses have been very clearly studied,” testified Dr. Anand. “The fetus cannot talk… so this is the best evidence we can get.”
Aren't you glad you weren't the victim of a Partial Birth Abortion?
