Suction Curettage

| medicine |

The official medical term for an abortion is suction curettage. Suction means to suck, curettage is basically scraping with a round knife. I love how medicine is able to break down this enormous emotional procedure that is a passionate part of our political atmosphere. With protestors and doctor murders , candidates for various administrations promising to either support or appose it.

It’s such a big deal to so many people. It is a topic of so much debate , there are movies and books and songs about it. There bumper stickers and t shirts and coffee mugs, there are people that devote their entire life to this cause.

But to medicine it’s a simple procedure. Suck and scrape. That’s it. No debate, no emotion, no complications - just suck and scrape. I sometimes wish everything in life was that simple.
