An anonymous abortion practitioner testifying at the partial-birth abortion trial in San Francisco admitted something pro-life advocates have known for a long time — abortion can kill women.
Justice Dept attorney Mark Quinlivan asked the abortionist whether partial-birth abortions can perforate or lacerate the cervix, the lower uterine segment, or the uterus.
The abortion practitioner said yes.
Then, according to the court's transcript, Quinlivan questioned whether those damages to a woman cause a woman to "exsanguinate and die."
"Yes," came the response again.
"Can you tell us what exsanguinate means," the attorney asked.
"To bleed to death”, the abortionist said.
