Dilation and Extraction: a surgical abortion procedure used to terminate a pregnancy after 21 weeks of gestation. This procedure is also known as D & X, Intact D & X, Intrauterine Cranial Decompression and Partial Birth Abortion. *This procedure is now considered against the law in the U.S. according to the Partial Birth Abortion Ban Act of 1995*
What also has escaped notice is the distinction between how the fetus is killed and how it is extracted. In most post-20-week abortions performed by clinics U.S. News interviewed, physicians first kill the fetus by cutting the umbilical cord or injecting digoxin (a heart medication) or other lethal agents to stop the fetal heartbeat. Then the fetus is removed, either intact (using a D&X procedure) or in pieces (using D&E).
Because the neural structures necessary to feel pain have not yet developed, any observable responses to stimuli at this gestational stage — like the fetal "flinching" during an amniocentesis — are reflexive, not experiential. Which is to say, the fetus at 20 weeks can't actually feel anything at all. Which is to say, the fundamental justification for these laws is a really big, really popular lie.
A woman has a right to do with her body as she wants. If a woman does not want to host a pregnancy, she does not have to.
To be an individual one must be able to live individually. Unborn babies, fetuses, or whatever you want to call them are still a part of the woman's body. No one has a right to tell an individual what to do with or keep in their own bodies. If you want to have the right to do with your body as you see fit then stop trying to tell others what to do with theirs. If a woman chooses not to be a host for another organism she has the right to not be a host. If she wants to then fine.
A federal appeals court Thursday reinstated a key part of a new Texas abortion law, considered to be among the most restrictive in the country.
The decision came three days after a federal judge struck down the provision, which requires doctors to obtain admitting privileges at a hospital within 30 miles of the clinic at which they're providing abortion services.
Thursday's decision means the requirement will remain in place while a lawsuit moves forward.
"While we acknowledge that Planned Parenthood has also made a strong showing that their interests would be harmed by staying the injunction, given the State's likely success on the merits, this is not enough, standing alone, to outweigh the other factors," read a part of Thursday's 20-page ruling by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit.
If you are going to do surgery as well as put someone under anesthesia it needs to be done in a hospital OR.
Appropriate emergency supplies, equipment and medications should be available and commensurate with the scope of surgical and anesthesia services provided at the podiatrist's office. The podiatrist and at least one additional staff member should be competent to perform cardiopulmonary resuscitation. You should also develop an emergency care plan for your practice that includes provisions for safe and timely transfer of patients to a nearby hospital when hospitalization is indicated.
Examples of procedures that are OBS include but are not limited to: upper endoscopy, colonoscopy, rhinoplasty, mammoplasty, lithotripsy or vascular access related procedures when accompanied by moderate or deep sedation, major upper or lower extremity nerve blocks, neuraxial or general anesthesia. Most procedures like botulinum toxin injections and minor integumentary procedures are performed with minimal or no sedation therefore can be performed in offices not requiring OBS accreditation.
Officials for one chain of abortion clinics testified in the trial that Yeakel oversaw that they've tried to obtain admitting privileges for their doctors at 32 hospitals, but so far only 15 accepted applications and none have announced a decision.

I do not believe those who support planned parenthood have any idea at the horrific complications that can arise from these corner store abortions.
The risk of death associated with a full-term pregnancy and delivery is 8.8 deaths per 100,000, while the risk of death linked to legal abortion is 0.6 deaths per 100,000 women, according to the study. That means a woman carrying a baby to term is 14 times more likely to die than a woman who chooses to have a legal abortion, the study finds.
In the United State, more women die giving birth than do due to botched abortions.
