The University of Hawaii and the University of Washington-Seattle are recruiting girls as young as 14 to have second-trimester abortions, as part of a research study on those kill-and-dismember procedures.
Researchers in Hawaii are looking for girls to participate in second trimester abortions as part of research on whether oxytocin can reduce bleeding in mothers during and after abortion.The girls can be as young as 14 for the study, which takes place in the second trimester of abortions, where the unborn baby is 18 to 24 weeks gestation.
Second trimester abortions are dangerous for women in many cases. The abortion procedure is two-days and involves stopping the baby’s heart and then delivering or dismembering the baby.
Women have a 50 percent or higher chance for physical complications when undergoing a second trimester abortion. Comparatively, the chance for physical complications is about 6 percent for first trimester abortions, according to Life News.
The University of Hawaii and the University of Washington in Seattle are conducting the study. It is expected to be complete by July.
