1st Trimester Medical Abortion: Abortion Pills


My name is Dr. Anthony Levatino. I’m a practicing obstetrician-gynecologist,
and I’ve performed over 1,200 abortions. Today, I’m going to describe a 1st Trimester
Medical Abortion. This is a procedure in which the mother swallows
pills in order to terminate her baby, and it is performed up to the 10th week of pregnancy. The procedure involves two steps: Step One. At the abortion clinic or doctor’s office,
the woman takes pills which contain Mifepristone, also called RU-486. RU-486 blocks the action
of a hormone called Progesterone. Progesterone is naturally produced in the
mother’s body to stabilize the lining of the uterus. When RU-486 blocks Progesterone, the lining
of the mother’s uterus breaks down, cutting off blood and nourishment to the baby, who
then dies inside the mother’s womb. It is important to note that even after it
has been taken, it is possible to reverse the effects of RU-486 and save the baby, if
Progesterone is administered. The sooner, the better. Step Two. 24-48 hours after taking RU-486, the woman
takes Misoprostol, also called Cytotec, that is administered either orally or vaginally. RU-486 and Misoprostol together cause severe
cramping, contractions, and often heavy bleeding, to force the dead baby out of the woman’s
uterus. The process can be very intense and painful,
and the bleeding and contractions can last from a few hours to several days. While she could lose her baby anytime and
anywhere during this process, the woman will often sit on a toilet as she prepares to expel
the child, which she will then flush. She may even see her dead baby within the
pregnancy sac. At 9 weeks, for example, the baby will be almost
an inch long, and if she looks carefully, she might be able to count the fingers and
toes. After she has disposed of her baby, the woman
may have bleeding and spotting for several weeks. Bleeding lasts, on average, 9-16 days. 8% of women bleed more than 30 days, and 1%
require hospitalization because of heavy bleeding. the failure rate increases as the pregnancy progresses. If failure occurs, she will usually be offered
a surgical abortion. For the mother, medical abortion often causes
abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, headache and heavy bleeding. Maternal deaths have occurred, most frequently
due to infection and undiagnosed ectopic pregnancy. As I mentioned at the beginning, I’m Dr.
Anthony Levatino, and in the early part of my career as an OB/GYN, I performed over 1,200
abortions. One day, after completing one of those abortions,
I looked at the remains of a preborn child whose life I had ended, and all I could see
was someone’s son or daughter. I came to realize that killing a baby at any
stage of pregnancy, for any reason, is wrong. I want you to know today, no matter where
you’re at or what you’ve done, you can change. Make a decision today to protect the preborn. Thank you for your time. I will no longer do any more abortions. When you finally figure out that killing a
baby that big for money is wrong, then it doesn’t take you too long to figure out
it doesn’t matter if the baby is this big, or this big, or this big, or maybe even this
big— it’s all the same. And I haven’t done any since then and I
never will.

  1. Also men are to blame for the sperm not not givef the to the women that's why abortions bett no givef them sperm to women but they like to feel feel good inside in them no no abortion no no abortion no no no
    Taste ineach other
    Pass the word around the whole world please

  2. Bro wtf. Why you gotta turn this into a prolife video? I came here out wonder and interest for science but instead i get this political bullshit. Fuck outta here asshole.

  3. Makes me sick to my stomach. Bet these pro-choice people never watch these videos. If they did they’d change their minds.

  4. Informational but the message is wrong. We have a right to protect our bodies and do with them what we choose

  5. I've busted many nuts

    & the sperm cells (future babies) did not fertilize an egg, which means by y'all niggas logics

    I've murdered 10 billion lives 😂

    If the newborn ain't born yet on the plane, he doesn't matter yet, shieet, its probably better that future baby don't come here on this hell hole earth, its up to the parents to truly decide

  6. You know non of your oh so kind words help any pregnant women you all should deff shut the fuck up i can see both sides b9th wanting to save a life and another person wanting their freedom.

    Who are you to judge them. Are you in their shoes!? I think not.

    Why the fuck do human beings think like this always arguing over stupid shit!

    Grown ass people still fighting
    Get it through your heads that clearly not everyone thinks alike and maybe not everyone is ready to be a parent and some are. But none will accept it theyd rather make the one going thru pain suffer more by pointing fingers unless youve been thru it should keep your mouths shut.

    Hate how people do nothing but shame. Shame on you for having the burve to scold another without knowing the situation.

    About 99% of the ones who are making the decosions actually dont want to terminate their pregnanxies but sometimes its a necessity and you dumbasses dont help. Believe me there is nothing more than i would love than to see every baby be born but we must also have common sense and stop and think before we judge another without looking at the over all picture. My point? Stop the hate already if your pro life act like it! Your harsh words arnt helping anyone try kind ones and see giw far itll get you forgive me by how this came out but ssomeone had to say it. I just feel strongly since i can deff agree to see bith sides. No matrer wh8ch its NEVER easy for the individual making the decision and trust its not like drs help they actually make it worse obgyns especially.

  7. 1:52 It's not baby, it's not child, it's not fetus, it's embryo at 9 weeks. It is size of a bean. Learn before you spread disinformation. Aren't you promoting politics and church? It's woman's right so you can shut your mouth because women will not obey. Give us husband that will be normal, give us enough rights to be paid when pregnant, give us healthcare and that you can say something, because you haven't been through pain so shut your political mouth because you are spreading lies.

  8. All these men in the comments say “god bless you”… psht, you guys are the ones putting the baby inside and then insisting to abort it

  10. you're not a woman, you don't deserve to say what's right or what's wrong with what a woman deserves to do with her body. SIMPLE. Not a single person decides to go through this process lightly, so calling a 5 week old clump of cells a "baby" is bullshit, and being a medically trained professional, you should have the knowledge to choose your terminology with more intelligence, sir.

  11. Abortion is the murder of a person, whether it’s done at 3 weeks or 33 weeks gestation. Pregnancy is always a possibility if you have sex, even if your birth control is supposed to be highly effective. That’s a consequence that we all have to accept.

  12. Im pro "mind your business".
    I'm not for or against. I'm just pro live YOUR life the way you want to and let others do them. Simple.

  13. Such a shame all these people telling women what to do with their body. Yes god makes life but NONE OF YOU ARE GOD. ONLY GOD CAN JUDGE AND HE IS VERY FORGIVING. I HAVE A CHILD AND HAD A ABORTION BEFORE AND HONESTLY NEVER HAVE A BABY IN A BAD SITUATION THATS WHAT IS CRUEL. Raising a child with someone who isn’t fit or is toxic is HELL ON EARTH AND YOUR CHILD WITH SUFFER . ADOPTION HURTS TOO YOU GIVE YOUR BABY AWAY THAT YOU BONDED WITH AND THE BABY MAY GROW UP TO SUFFER IF THEY FIND OUT AND FEEL LIED TO OR UNLOVED. DO WHAT IS BEST FOR YOU WE ALL MAKE MISTAKES AND WE ALL FALL SHORT. ASK FOR FORGIVENESS , PRAY AND DO GOOD IN THE WORLD. IT’S NOT THE END OF THE WORLD. YOU NEVER KNOW PEOPLES CIRCUMSTANCES AND KIDS DESERVE THE ABSOLUTE BEST. ALSO SCREW THIS DOCTOR WHO MADE THIS VIDEO AFTER ABORTING THOUSANDS OF BABIES HE HAS THE AUDACITY TO SAY WHATS WRONG ? A HYPOCRITE. It wasn’t wrong when he made money off of it. Women do NOT FEEL GUILTY FOR DOING WHATS BEST FOR YOUR LIFE. MY MOTHER LEFT ME ABANDONED ON A STEP AND NEGLECTED ME I HAD A BEAUTIFUL CHILD I LOVE TO DEATH BUT I WOULDNT HAVE SO MANY ISSUES HAD SHE NOT MADE THE SELFISH DECISION TO LEAVE ME ALONE. KIDS DONT DESERVE THAT. IF YOU DONT WANT THE CHILD DO NOT HAVE IT.

  14. Even though our water gets treated. I just realized when woman get pill abortion and have to flush the baby.

    That water goes back to water treatment center. Doesn't this put a spirtual curse on our water and technically our food?

    :'(

  15. After this video I started to cry… I DIDN'T KNOW WOMEN WOULD ACTUALLY WANT TO GET RID OF THEIR BABIES BY TAKING THEY'RE LIFE!!! I hope no one I know will do this…

  16. I am pragnent for 9weeks..but baby still not get heartbeat.. In that case my dr prescribed me for abortion by medicine… Is there any hope to get heartbeat in 1week+??..will it right to keep my baby without hearbeat situation in my womb???…dr. Plz let me know..its urgent for me to know….thank you…

  17. It’s hypocritical to believe it’s only right to get an abortion if the woman was raped because either way it’s still considered a “life.” You are either pro life or pro choice, there is no in between. In my opinion I am pro choice because there could be many reasons as to why a woman gets an abortion. It could be an ectopic pregnancy, the baby may have a life threatening disability, etc. But why would people only believe it’s right to terminate in those cases when it’s the same damn thing. A lunatic out there would say well God wanted it this way if they got raped by their brother and kept the child. That is not something that God wanted. There is so much negativity that happens around this world because of spawning more people in this planet. The serial killers and rapists amongst us are the same very people that could have been aborted, in many cases these people were not raised correctly because they didn’t have a true bond with their parents. Not everyone is meant to be a parent. This planet would be a much better place if we all had the choice to stop these negative upbringings.

  18. I always wonderes as little boy why my mom aleays swallowed pills and why i didn’t never get siblings until i saw this video

  19. My friend is currently pregnant and so sick she can’t work. She can’t sleep, and she can barley stand. She is in constant pain and can’t pay her bills because she is too sick to work. She wanted to keep her baby, but how will she keep a roof over its head when she can’t work? She on the verge of getting evicted on top of the fact that she has a car note and insurance.And the dad is no good. She’s loosing weight and she’s so fragile and frail. I’ve never seen her so sick in my life and she’s only 6 weeks. What other options does she have?

  20. I don't understand if you're against abortion, why are you watching this video? Let alone comment

  21. Abortion has to remain legal. It is horrible. I had 2. My family made me. I cried the whole time. I had no side effects or lasting damage. It was a shock to see the fetus. But just like alcohol, prostitution, drugs, rape and war these sad things happen. You must not push abortion into back alleys. You must have laws that protect people. You cannot push religious ideology on people who are not interested. Sexism is the real reason behind unwanted pregnancy. Real sexual education and access to good contraception is the one biggest way to prevent abortion. And also try this, when a woman walks past you, don't teach your sons she could be 'a sexual temptress' or 'provocative' to them. Teach them to submit to women like jesus makes himself a slave to his wife. Teach them about violence against women, rape, consent. Don't cover for your sons bad behaviour, cover your daughters with love.

  22. if you really need an anorion medicine thats real and legit seller just in ox miss Favian Javier Gelique in Facebook messenger she can help you to get access for safe abortion meds. iam a past client of her and i prove it 100% trusted seller also for those kabayan like me in abroad

  23. Damn put it up for ADOPTION. Most people saying they aren’t ready for a baby but be having 3 cats and dogs with a pet snake! 😒😒😒 really nigga? If you got all these damn animals then BITCH😂😂😂 keep yo motherfucking legs close damn.

  24. I’m pro choice but any abortion past first trimester unless the woman’s life is in danger or rape or incest it should be wrong.

  25. I refer someone who helped me on my unwanted pregnancies, she's a seller and absolutely not a scammer. Kristine Luntao is the name guys. So if you are in deep stress kindly pm that person. She can really help.

  26. Truth hurts but women are not just for sex and having babies we have/need jobs, houses, cars. Every country dont have the option to have abortions/birth control they have 5-6kids looking stupid under a strict religion in belief but yet everyone around them super poor with no future trying to move here. We in America we cant help other countries if we messed up like them women are stuck being nobody.

  27. for those kabayans with unwanted and un prepared pregnancy, lets talk about it..just leave a message on my fb account Kristine Luntao…I will help u find the safest medicine for abortion.

  28. First of all if you want to make an educational video that will help young people and people unaware of abortion you should make it unbiased and true. I got your Ad while watching dog videos and I am disturbed at the fact people are being influenced by biased people who say their trying to spread “awareness” by being biased and just guilting people into the cause.

  29. This is you projecting your own trauma and ideology. You are adding to the pain here through scaremongering with a dishonest emotive presentation of the facts. This is an abuse of your authority in an attempt to manage guilt that should be dealt with in a therapist's office.

  30. Abortion is not murder! The mother can be going through things in her life, she could be poor and cannot care for her baby or the mother can even be a rape victim.

  31. It makes me cry as I'm a mother too….I have 4 kids…I've done 4 C-Sections.After that I've got the tubes tied and I never thought of doing an abortion…its so disgusting to see mother is killing their baby and is the murderer of their own son or daughter…so sad

  32. How could anyone lol something that looks like that already die and kill it , 😢this is so sad taking apart the babie at that age , people are so cruel

  33. The people in the comments make me sick…Who the fuck do yall think you are to try and make someone feel bad for making a mistake. We arent perfect! You don't rather that child be subjected to the worst outcomes from knowing the mother cannot afford or mentally stable to take care of it. We all have opinions but some of yall make me sick…

  34. You shouldn't give your private opinion especially that peoples share different views, just talk about the topic that's it, unprofessional.

  35. …Suffocate then just Flush your baby….that baby could’ve done something great…u didn’t even give it a chance…imagine if dr.king or Obama had been aborted…🥺🙄

  36. All Human life is sacred and valuable.

    Find your humanity, grow your humanity.

    Don't hate life; your life, being experienced second by second, for many years, a baby's life, stolen out of the safety and comfort of his human mother's womb, with your tax dollars, all life.

    Love life, find your humanity.

    Grow and embrace your empathy.

    Become an Empath, not an Apath or a Sociopath, or a Psychopath.

    After all, YOU could have been extinguished in your mother's womb, and never experience all that you have lived.

    Jesus taught in Matthew 7:12

    "So in everything, do to others what you would have them do to you, for this sums up the Law and the Prophets."
