Abortionist: Women Have Late-Term Abortions Because “We Can See the Fetal Heart So Much Better”

At an event at the George Washington University Hospital, the delegate for the District of Columbia, Eleanor Holmes Norton, said that nothing is more under attack than reproductive choice in America today. Apparently she came to this conclusion after the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act passed through the U.S. House of Representatives.

She said, “As I look at what’s up in the Congress and the issues that are often discussed either among members or in the Congress or as I think about the states, I do not think I exaggerate when I say nothing is more under attack than reproductive choice in America today.”

Truthfully, it’s no surprise that Norton said this because earlier this year she implied that the United States should regulate vet clinics not abortion facilities because what happens in abortion isn’t surgical. In other words, Norton is so radically pro-abortion that she compared dismembering a child limb from limb with a simple visit to the vet.



Val Vilott, the president of the D.C. Abortion Fund, echoed Norton’s concerns at the George Washington Hospital event and added that she believes it is wrong that women and girls can’t get their abortions for free.

She said, “During that moment when there was Medicaid, the number of people accessing abortion was huge, and I can tell you now, I don’t have the numbers in front of me, but I promise it outstrips what we can do as a tiny organization, and the bottom line is that we shouldn’t have to, right? It’s a privilege to do this work, but we shouldn’t have to do it, because it’s the job of the government, and it’s the job of the people we elect to take care of its citizens, particularly those most in need and those who are trying to get their lives on a track of their choice.”

However, what was worse than the comments from Norton and Vilott were the comments from Dr. Matthew Reeves, the medical director of the National Abortion Federation. Unbelievably, at the conference Dr. Reeves explained that he’s urged other abortionists to perform abortions closer to 20-weeks. According to National Right to Life, the most common form of abortion on a baby at 20-weeks is a dismemberment abortion or the D&E method, which involves using a long steel tool to tear off the baby’s arms and legs and to crush the child’s skull.

Dr. Reeves said, “Part of my job there was to read ultrasounds. The other side of my career – and we used to regularly encourage our referring obstetricians to send the patients closer to 20 weeks, because we could see the fetal heart so much better,” he said during the question and answer period in response to a question about why women wait 20 weeks to obtain abortions.”ultrasound4d38
