Residents of Albuquerque, New Mexico will vote on Tuesday on a measure that would ban abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy. As a new undercover videos shows, the notorious late-term abortion facility Southwestern Women’s Options kills unborn babies by shooting them through the heart with poison.
With the vote days away, the pro-life group Live Action today released a new investigative video that exposes the gruesome particulars of the late-term abortion procedure and the sleazy business side of the abortion industry.
The video, titled “Profits from Pain,” features a new investigative recording from Southwestern Women’s Options. The November 8 recording shows a Live Action investigator scheduling a 25-week abortion, which she is told is a “week-long procedure.”
When the investigator expresses shock at the abortion’s cost – $8,000 – the facility’s staffer sympathizes: “Are you still in your chair?” She follows up with a warning: “every week that goes by, the fee goes up by another thousand dollars[.]”
Lila Rose, the head of Live Action, tells LifeNews today that her group hopes to alert Americans – who, polls consistently show, vehemently oppose late-term abortion – to the abortion industry’s “rabid and extremist” opposition to any and all industry regulations.
“This facility is only one of the worst examples of the abortion industry’s complete disregard for basic human rights,” Lila Rose, Live Action’s president, explained. “Babies shot through the heart with poison, mothers left to deliver their dead children in an empty hotel room.”
“If Cecile Richards thought Albuquerque was a winning issue,” Rose continued, “she would be trying to make money on it. But Planned Parenthood’s fundraising e-mails are silent on this. It takes a truly fringe mentality to advocate for more privileges for abortionists in the face of the blatant negligence and contempt for women on display in Albuquerque. And yet we have senators and congressmen in Washington, bought and paid for by Planned Parenthood, trying to mainstream this gruesome reality.”
Rose was referring to a new piece of legislation, the putative Women’s Health and Safety Act of 2013, intended to federally nullify all abortion regulations nationwide, from sanitation standards to waiting periods to building code regulations.

“On the one hand,” Rose said, “we have a city making history by voting to forbid industrial slaughter of precious children. On the other, we have Planned Parenthood-backed, virulently pro-abortion politicians working to help abortionists carry out this butchery. But what more can we expect from people like Barbara Boxer, who think a baby ‘becomes’ a human being only when her parents arrive home with her from the hospital?”
California senator Barbara Boxer, one of the sponsors of the abortion expansion bill, famously said in 2010, “I think that when you bring your baby home, when your baby is born … the baby belongs to your family and has all the rights.”
“This,” Rose concluded, “is a clear-cut case of good versus evil.”
