An undercover investigation into the practices of a New Mexico abortion clinic has revealed that the clinic has no qualms about aborting babies, even those who have reached 30-weeks gestation.
LifeNews.com reports that the Southwestern Women’s Options clinic in Albuquerque, New Mexico is one of the last abortion clinics in the U.S. that will abort babies through all nine months of pregnancy.
Recently, the pro-life groups Priests for Life and Abortion Free New Mexico conducted an investigation into the clinic’s abortion practices to see how they handle a late-term abortion situation.
One of the investigators called the clinic, posing as a 26-year-old woman who was seeking an abortion. She told the clinic she was 30 weeks pregnant.
“We will euthanize the fetus on the first day,” the staffer told her. On the following day, the staffer continued, “we dilate the cervix and then we induce labor. So you will be going through the act of labor and delivery of a stillborn fetus.”
The undercover call also revealed that tax dollars pay for abortions since the staffer also said she would check for the woman to see if Medicaid would pay for the procedure.
“It’s that easy to kill a healthy baby at 30 weeks” in New Mexico, the pro-life groups said in the video they released of the investigation. They added that they hope the investigation will help Americans realize how easily late-term abortions can be obtained and how taxpayers are forced to subsidize these procedures.
