Listen toots, it's a dilation and curettage. That's what the D&C PROCEDURE is called, medically. End of story.<quoted text>It is an abortion procedure, if it weren't an abortion procedure, then Pro-Life is lying about all those gruesome elective abortion procedures on Youtube right? It is medically an abortion procedure as well as a procedure for other uterine dx's.
"A D&C is not and never will be medcially called an "abortion procedure", not even when it's used to induce an abortion".
That's what the PROCEDURE is called. Then it's charted/coded whatever floats your boat, as to what the procedure was used for, ie: the specific medical issue.
