Dr. Anthony Levantino, a New Mexico doctor who previously performed 1,200 abortions, testified before Congress on Thursday and asked lawmakers to pass a bill that would ban abortions nationwide after 20 weeks of pregnancy.
Some of the abortions Levantino performed were after 20 weeks, he revealed.
It was after his daughter died in a tragic car accident that the physical reexamined his beliefs on abortion.
“During my residency training and during my first five years of private practice, I performed both first and second trimester abortions,” Levantino testified. He went on to describe the abortion process in excruciating detail.
“If you refuse to believe that this procedure inflicts severe pain on that unborn child, please think again,” he said.
