As part of the GOP Iowa debate last night, the procedure term partial birth abortion was brought up by Michele Bachmann. From previous pieces I have written on the subject, I remember that many people don't seem to recognize the difference between abortion and late term abortion aka partial term abortion.
No matter what side of the issue you are on in terms of "abortion", this procedure, these images below, this post itself, is not about the abortion argument, it is specifically showing what partial birth abortion is.. only.
This is partial birth abortion.
