As Texas prepares to vote on a bill that would ban abortions in that state past 20 weeks of pregnancy, a new undercover investigative video reveals that abortion doctors at Southwestern Women’s Options (SWO) in Albuquerque, New Mexico engage in the practice of leaving women alone in hotel rooms to deliver their dead babies.
In its sixth video in the undercover series entitled, Inhuman: Undercover in America’s Abortion Industry, pro-life organization Live Action discovered that an abortion counselor at SWO advised the 27-week pregnant undercover investigator:
If we can’t catch it [delivery of the dead baby – the final stage of the abortion procedure] early enough, which has happened – then you’ll want to unlock the door to the hotel room, get your cell phone, and just sit on the toilet. You don’t have to look at anything – you can stay on the phone with us until the doctor and nurse get there[.]
Abortionist Dr. Carmen Landau repeated this advice, telling the Live Action investigator to “sit on the toilet” and “unlock the hotel room.” “Just sit there,” Landau says, “and you would not move until we come and get you.”
Texas state senator Wendy Davis (D) engaged in a filibuster against SB5, a proposed ban on late-term abortions in her state that included proposals that would force abortion clinics to adopt the standards of care of other ambulatory surgery clinics. Claiming to be supporters of women’s health, Davis and pro-abortion supporters complained that the higher health standards would force many abortion clinics to close.
