My first and only experience of abortion was when I was on work experience in a veterinary clinic. A woman had brought in her female cat in to be spayed. I assisted the Vet who opened up the cat only to find unborn kittens inside her. He removed them ( still inside the amnio sac ) and threw them into the cold metal rubbish bin. I could see their hearts beating through their skin and I asked him if he was going to inject them to kill them quickly. He said that he wasn’t and that they would eventually die. It took a long time for their hearts to stop beating and I have never forgotten the experience.
I protested at an abortion clinic when I was a student at Training college. My pro-life views were very strong back then. Like many people I am isolated from the reality of abortion so it is easy to forget and to not care, as the reality is that it is legal and I personally cannot stop it. One thing though that can clearly stop it, is for people to be properly informed about their ‘ choice.’
In this video all it took was a factual video of a second trimester abortion being performed for people to change their minds. If abortion clinics were forced to tell the truth to their customers, to show them an accurate video of what is about to happen, our abortion rate would plummet.

**WARNING it is not pleasant but they all use illustrations, not images of real babies. I was unable to watch the final one as I found the first two very upsetting.
Forget all the moral arguments, forget all the legal arguments. After watching these videos you will agree that if you are going to have an abortion or support a woman having an abortion, ignorance is definitely bliss.
