Intact dilation and extraction is the method of abortion used for fetuses of gestational age ranging between 19 to 23 weeks- they represent less than 1% of all abortions performed in the United States and are done because of a medical problem or illness in the fetus or pregnant person (also allowing for an autopsy and genetic testing, should there be any fetal abnormalities that are cause for future concern). The procedure also allows grieving parents to hold, baptize, and arrange a burial or cremation for their lost, but intact, child. Dilation and evacuation is another method which may be used, wherein the fetus is not kept intact. It is important to note that in both procedures, doctors, in compliance with the federal Partial-Birth Abortion Ban Act of 2003, will use injections to cause fetal demise prior to evacuation. (In Gonzales v. Carhart, 2007, the Supreme Court ruled to allow this procedure to be done provided the fetus is dead before it is delivered). Even prior to the ruling, many doctors preferred to do so, particularly as it helps to reduce complications for the mother. Parents who undergo this procedure are not doing so on a whim- their pregnancies are very much wanted but are face complications requiring abortion.
