Suction

Pregnant Pause Home Abortion Search this site


This fetal tissue is the result of a suction abortion at 10 weeks into the pregnancy.

In this method, the abortionist inserts a hollow plastic tube with a sharp edge -- called a "suction catheter" -- into the womb. The other end of the tube is connected to a suction device, similar in principle to a home vacuum cleaner but 29 times as powerful. The force of the suction tears the fetal tissue apart, and it is then sucked out the tube and disposed of. The abortionist then uses the sharp edge to cut and scrape the placenta from the lining of the uterus.

This is a commonly used method for first trimester abortions.
