In a newly released undercover video by pro-life organization, Live Action, an abortion worker describes the process of terminating a “fully grown” baby at 23 weeks’ (6 months’) gestation.
“Infants who survive abortions are entitled to life-saving medical care,” Live Action founder Lila Rose wrote Saturday in a Facebook post with a clip of the video. “This abortion worker tells our investigator to ‘flush’ the baby down the toilet if the child is born alive, and then she admits that children are frequently killed in the late-term.”
In the clip, an undercover investigator visits an abortion clinic disguised as pregnant mother seeking to terminate her child. During a conversation with a clinic employee, she manages to uncover some of the brutal truths about the practice.
After sharing that she is 23 weeks pregnant, the investigator asks the worker if she knows how big the child is.
“It’s 6 months,” the worker says. “It’s, uh, it’s fully grown.”
The investigator then gets the woman to describe in grim detail how a late-term abortion is performed.
“It’s done by suction,” she explains. “It’s a sucking tool that they just hold, and it sucks it (the baby) in. And then they put it in … a solution, and they send it out to the lab so they can measure everything to make sure that everything came out of you.”
“So it doesn’t come out in one piece?” the investigator asks.
“OK. So I’m just trying to think — how does it — ?” she presses.
The worker explains that once the solution is injected into the mother’s womb, the child starts “falling apart.”
“I mean, I don’t know why you want to know all this!” the worker says with a nervous laugh. “Just do it!”
But the investigator persists. She proceeds to ask the clinic employee what they would do in the event that the child was born alive.
At first, the woman assures her that the solution would be effective in killing the child.
“That’s the whole purpose of the solution,” she says.
“OK,” the investigator continues. “So, like, if it looked like it was, like … breathing or something like that — ?”
But the employee insists that this wouldn’t happen.
“OK. So what is the solution. It’s just, like, something like toxic or something?” the investigator asks.
“Yeah,” the worker says.
The investigator then asks what would happen if following the abortion procedure, she began to experience labor pains at home, indicating part of the child was still inside her womb?
The worker tells her to call the clinic if she experiences pain, but if part of the baby “comes out,” she should “flush it.”
Afterwards, though, she’d “still have to come in” to “make sure that everything came out.” But the worker adds that their clinic has “never had a situation like that.”
“If anything,” she continues, “we’ll tell you to put it in a bag or something … and bring it to us.”
The worker notes that “two-day procedures,” where the child isn’t fully removed on the first try, happen “every day.” In the event that this occurs, patients are asked to call the clinic.
“Whatever happens at home, you know, like don’t call the hospital?” the investigator asks.
“No. No. Call us,” the woman says.
When asked why the recommend this, the abortion worker explains, “‘cause we started it first.”
“The hospital won’t take you,” she says. “They won’t touch you, either, because we started it. So whoever starts it has to finish it.”
She adds that the hospital would likely force her “to push the pregnancy out.”
“When it’s alive?” the investigator clarifies.
“Yeah,” she confirms. “And then I don’t know what they do with it.”
