Steven Ertelt, founder of, drew my attention via Twitter to this explanation of the abortion procedure in South African abortion clinics.

This account was first published in 2012. The author of that account is Jina Moore and the title of the article is: “South Africa: A Day at Dora Nginza”. Dora Nginza is a state hospital in Port Elizabeth, South Africa. It is apparently Port Elizabeth’s biggest health facility.

In the article Jina Moore tells how Sharon Hobo, the abortionist, explained to her how painful the abortion procedure is and how women often scream during the procedure. Hobo also mentions how terrified many women are and that some of those who receive abortions are as young as 14 years old.

We must not forget that it is not only the mothers who experience pain during the abortion procedure, which Sharon Hobo explained. Recent studies have shown that the unborn babies also begin to feel pain at a relatively early stage in their growth in the mothers womb. Sadly, unlike the mothers screams, we cannot hear the babies screams while the abortion is carried out.

To watch the entire video of Sharon Hobo’s explanation, which is a quick 7 minute video, please follow the link over to Then why not consider these words of Pope Francis, which he said to all the bishops of Southern Africa:

Abortion compounds the grief of many women who now carry with them deep physical and spiritual wounds after succumbing to the pressures of a secular culture which devalues God’s gift of sexuality and the right to life of the unborn.” - Pope Francis
