Of course, they never, ever call themselves pro-abortion. They call themselves pro-choice. Don't fall for it. The next time someone says they are pro-choice, look them dead in the eye and say, "Then you're pro-abortion?" When they start to hit you with weasel words about being personally against abortion, but they defend a women's right to choose, repeat your previous statement. Keep repeating it until the person either gives in or starts calling you names. Both are wins...

Which brings me to an article in The Federalist, Texas Court Case Exposes The Gruesome Reality Of Dismemberment Abortion
Just reading the beginning of the article makes my head reel and my stomach scrinch. How can we we even be having such a conversation in what we call a civilized world?
A bizarre spectacle unfolded this week in a federal district courtroom in Austin, Texas, where a group of abortion providers argued they shouldn’t have to kill a fetus before dismembering it in its mother’s womb, and the state argued that they should.
At issue is a state law passed earlier this year, Senate Bill 8, that would ban live dismemberment abortions. A live dismemberment abortion is exactly what it sounds like: a doctor uses forceps to tear apart a live fetus, limb by limb, and remove it from the mother’s uterus. This is usually done in the second trimester, when the fetus is too large to be suctioned out.
The law in question wouldn’t ban such a procedure, but it would require abortion doctors in Texas to ensure that a fetus is dead before they dismember it. The case, Whole Woman’s Health v. Paxton, hinges on the constitutionality of the Texas law and marks the first time the merits of such a statute have been considered at a trial. READ THE REST

Considering the cost of "professional" carpet cleaning, I would get one of these in a heartbeat if I had carpet in my house:
