A New York abortion counselor advised a woman who was considering a late-term abortion to flush the baby down the toilet in the event the child survived the procedure and a Washington, D.C. abortion provider refused to offer assistance in the result of a live-birth abortion, according to an undercover video sting by a national pro-life organization.
Live Action, a national pro-life organization, targeted a number of abortion clinics that specialize in late-term abortions. Employees of the abortion providers were filmed on a hidden camera.
One of the most egregious reports came from a clinic in Bronx, NY. Click here to read the full transcript
“If it comes out, then it comes out,” a counselor at the Dr. Emily Woman’s Health Center told the woman. “Flush it. Put it in a bag or something and bring it to us.”
Lila Rose, president of Live Action, told Fox News she is calling on state and federal prosecutors to investigate the abortion clinic as well as others that specialize in late-term abortions.
“Dr. Kermit Gosnell is not alone,” she said. “The gruesome and inhumane practices exposed in Gosnell’s House of Horrors are business as usual for the abortion industry in America. This isn’t choice –this is murder.”
A receptionist at the abortion clinic said no one would be available to comment until midweek. The New York Dept. of Health did not return calls seeking comment.
The Bronx abortion provider can be seen on video explaining what happens if an aborted baby is born alive.
“If it did come out in one piece, it’s very small,” she said. “So they would still have to put it in a container – like a jar – with solution and send it to the lab.”
In the event the baby was still moving, the counselor said they would put the child in a jar of toxic solution – ensuring its death.
“The Bronx video is horrific,” Rose told Fox News. “It illustrates the inhumane and illegal practices taking place in the abortion industry.”
She said the footage demonstrates the brutality of late term abortions.
“These are children who deserve our care, our respect and our compassion – not to be flushed down toilets or killed in jars of toxic solution,” she said.
The abortion provider in the Washington, D.C. case was not revealed – but the video shows a worker explaining they would not try to keep any aborted baby alive. That brought condemnation from the Susan B. Anthony List.
“It is an outrage that within blocks of the White House, children capable of feeling excruciating pain can legally have their lives brutally ended or be left to die without care,” SBA List president Marjorie Dannenfelser said. “What is the difference between killing a baby minutes before delivery compared to moments after? Only the barest of legal nuances. That’s why it is critical that we enact lifesaving protections for unborn children in the District, beginning with those capable of feeling pain.”
Rose said they plan on releasing more undercover videos proving that Gosnell is not alone.
“Americans were outraged that we’ve allowed an abortionist to butcher live infants,” she said. “But Gosnell is not alone. When we allow the killing of unborn children, this is the result. We see the lines are blurred.”
