“My comment: despite the fact that lethal injections (“feticide”) before dismemberment abortion are probably not the norm (nobody knows how common they are, but they would ruin fetal tissue that may otherwise be sold), some point to the injection of digoxin or potassium chloride (KCl) into the fetus or amniotic sac as providing the child a humane death.
Hardly. Besides the fact that digoxin–the most commonly-used feticide in the U.S. by far–typically takes hours or days to achieve that effect, a significant number of unborn children are not actually dead by the time the abortionist intrudes with his serrated forceps. As noted below and elsewhere, potassium chloride may cause intense pain upon injection: during his execution with KCl, Michael Wilson said, “I feel my whole body burning.” He had also received a large dose of pentobarbital, a barbiturate meant to relax and anesthetize him. Before their best-case scenario–lethal injection–unborn children doomed to death by abortion receive no such courtesy. They are simply ripped apart while their hearts beat and limbs flail.” …”
