A new undercover investigation this week exposes how easy it is to abort a healthy, late-term unborn baby in the nation’s capital. The United States is home to many abortion clinics that will abort an unborn baby for any reason through virtually all nine months of pregnancy.
Recently, an undercover investigator called the late-term abortion facility, Washington Surgi-Clinic, to find out how easy it would be for a woman to schedule a late-term abortion for a healthy unborn baby. Priests for Life and Abortion Free New Mexico conducted the investigation.
The results of the call were startling as a staffer indicated a willingness to do the late-term abortion on the healthy, viable unborn baby as soon as the next day. Listen to the audio of th ecall in the video below:
Tara Shaver of Abortion Free New Mexico told LifeNews in response, “In our nation’s capital, late term abortions are being performed on viable babies through 26 weeks of pregnancy. Washington Surgi-Clinic is performing these abortions on healthy women carrying healthy babies with no questions asked. Now is the time for Congress to act swiftly to end this scourge of late term abortion.”
Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, said the following in response: “Here in our nation’s Capital, as in cities from coast to coast, healthy babies of healthy mothers are being killed at stages where they can survive outside the womb, as our 12th undercover phone call, released today, reveals.”
“With the collaboration of our colleagues at Abortion Free New Mexico, these phone calls show that someone can easily make an appointment to have an abortion late in pregnancy. This particular call resulted in an appointment for an abortion at over 26 weeks, and the clinic personnel treated it in a routine way,” he said. “Even people who identify as pro-choice reject abortion at these late stages of pregnancy. As a Knights of Columbus/Marist poll last year revealed, almost six in ten Americans support the protection of babies in the womb after 20 weeks of pregnancy. This includes 56 percent of people who identify themselves as ‘pro-choice,’ and 49 percent of those who identify as Democrats.”
