Manual Vaccum Aspiration
MVA is used to abort a child from 6 weeks to 12 weeks of age. This handheld syringe works by creating its own vacuum/suction. MVAs are used and reused millions of times a year around the world. The major problem with the MVA is that it has a very weak vacuum. This means that the child is ripped apart slowly.
Uterine Currette
One side of the loop is sharp for cutting the child apart. The other side scrapes the uterus to remove the placenta.
Syringe with Spinal Needle
This abortion instrument's uses include injecting saltwater into the uterus. The baby swallows and breathes the poison. The cause of the death is congestion, hemorrhage and shock. The mother goes into premature labor about a day later and delivers a dead child. The other use is to inject the chemicals (digoxin, potassium chloride, etc.) into the heart of the baby. In both uses, these harsh chemicals soften the child's corpse, making it easier to rip apart and remove.
Forceps
This abortion tool is used to crush, grasp, and pull the child's body apart.
Embryotomy Scissors
This instrument is used to cut off the head, arms and legs.
 
Van Huevel's Destructive Forceps with Chainsaw

The Lollini
This perforator was used to perform a craniotomy
on the baby as the preliminary process in collapsing
the skull, which would allow subsequent extraction.
Tire-tete
This abortion intrument's purpose was to hold the baby's head with
the spiked ends. Once the head was held, a long thin probe was
pushed deep into the skull like a sword. The instrument held the baby's head, so once it was cut off, it would not float around in the uterus.
Cranioclast
This abortion instrument was used to crush
the baby's skull so as to allow the extraction.
Tire-Tete
This abortion instrument works by pushing the spike into the child's head. Once it is inside, the button is pushed. When it flattens, you can pull the child out.

cut off the baby's head, legs and arms.

Dr. Bedford's Double Crochets
This abortion tool was designed to hook into the
baby without ripping into the uterus.
It is believed that this abortion instrument was used to turn the baby around in the uterus. It works by inserting the acorn-like device deep into the baby's mouth. The baby swallows it. After some time, it goes down to the stomach. When the cord is pulled, sharp spikes stab into the baby's belly. The baby can then be forced around and down, making the abortion easier to perform.
