April 20, 2012 (LifeSiteNews.com) - In the wake of a decision by the nations Supreme Federal Tribunal determining that babies suffering from the birth defect known as anencephaly arent legally alive, and therefore can be freely aborted, Brazilian doctors are explaining to the media how such babies will in fact be killed under the new legal regime.
In a recent interview with Brazils most popular news magazine, Veja, the Vice-President of the Federal Council on Medicine, Dr. Carlos Vital, explained that doctors will have two choices: either curettage or aspiration.
Abortions of ancephalic babies will be performed in the second or third trimester.
A curettage abortion uses a loop-shaped knife to cut the child to pieces, and then scrape his body and placenta from the uterine wall. An aspiration abortion uses powerful suction to tear the child apart, and likewise separate him from his mother.
According to doctors, if these methods are inadequate in later term abortions, Dilation and Evacuation (D&E) would be required, involving a clamp that is used to tear apart the babys larger body. Dr. Vital told Veja that abortions on anencephalic children could be performed up to the ninth month of pregnancy.
Dr. Vital added that such abortions will require a committee of doctors to determine the proper criteria for diagnosis of anencephaly, a condition whose exact definition is not agreed upon by physicians.
Anencephalic babies fail to develop the top parts of their heads, including the skull and upper brain. Most die in the womb or shortly after birth, although some have lived for days, months, and even years with the condition.
Although medical professionals often claim that such children are unaware of their surroundings and unable to suffer, parents of anencephalic babies report that their children show signs of awareness and seem to react in very specific ways to their environment. Some doctors theorize that the brain stem of such infants is able to adapt to the needs of rudimentary awareness, a phenomenon known as neuroplasticity.
In the United States, an estimated 95 percent of anencephalic babies are killed inside their mothers womb.
In a public statement on the Supreme Federal Tribuals decision, Brazilian pro-life activist Fr. Luis Lodi da Cruz called the verdict monstrous and noted that, according to the Tribunal minister who oversaw the case, the abortion of an anencephalic child is a procedure similar to removing a cadaver.
Paradoxically, [Minister] Marco Aurélio admits that the anencephalic dies in a short period of time. Tell me, how can he die if hes already dead? asked Lodi da Cruz.
The USA has been murdering Gods children in their mothers womb since 1973, thanks to the opinion of 5 of Satans finest devotees.

Over 50 million babies in mothers womb sacrificed to Satan
You don’t think that God, Jesus, and all the Angels in Heaven weep when any soul is lost in darkness and evil?
[I do understand what you are getting at though - we are totally unworthy of the blessings we receive daily, but remember He promised also never to smite the ENTIRE human race again as well, so - we’ve got that going for us. In the meantime we all have to bear witness to these atrocities, and that’s not going to be much fun for anyone... Whether God Himself “cries” or not, I know I’ve done so. Keep faith.]
We also had a son with trisomy 18. Our doc advised an early induced delivery at 26 weeks. I asked if my life was I danger carrying the baby and he said no. So we said no thanks we will wait until God is ready for him. I considered it a privilege to carry a saint. the most amazing thing was seeing the chromosomes karyotype showing that there were 3 instead of 2. All I could think was Father, Son, Holy Spirit, the trinity. I knew my son belonged to God. It was a humbling experience for sure. He passed into eternity an hour after his birth. I kept hoping God would let us see the angels carrying him home. Can’t wait for the reunion.
