A woman decided to have a late-term abortion because the baby had spina bifida, and would likely be in a wheelchair. Some techniques of late-term abortion require a woman to go through labor, and she wanted to avoid that, so she opted to have her child dismembered in a D&E abortion procedure. In this type of abortion, the abortionist dismembers the baby with forceps, pulling out pieces (arms, legs, etc) and the baby is usually alive and conscious as he or she is torn apart.
In the United States, the Born Alive Infant Protection Act requires abortionists and staff to give medical care to a child accidentally born alive during an abortion. However, Live Action has discovered through undercover investigations that many abortionists ignore this law.

Babies are also born alive after abortions in Europe. The ACLJ, which is promoting legislation to protect these infants, has compiled testimonies from nurses and midwives.
An abortion doctor named David Peters made the following creepy comment in a 2013 article about clinic regulations:
I can stick needles in babies’ lungs. I can put tubes up penises and into bladders, and do all sorts of crazy stuff in my office with no regulations whatsoever. No government supervision… But for an abortion, I’ve got to have the sterile room–the size of the building matters–so, it just becomes nonsensical.
Many people are not aware that abortions done in the late second and third trimester are legal, but they happen every day in the United States. Most late term abortions are done for elective, not medical reasons.
Pro-choice feminist Wendy Simonds interviewed clinic workers who spoke about how they felt when their clinic started performing abortions up to 26 weeks.
Norma McCorvey was the plaintiff in the 1973 Roe v. Wade decision, which forced legal abortion throughout the country. Few people know that she also worked in abortion clinics before becoming pro-life.
In her sworn deposition (Norma McCorvey, also known as “Jane Roe” of Roe v. Wade) of March 15, 2000 (which can be found in its entirety here) she describes some of the experiences she had while working in the abortion industry.
You don’t usually see abortion workers giving much significance to preborn babies. If you look at most abortion clinic websites (in fact, all abortion clinic websites that I’ve seen), you see words like “the pregnancy” used to describe the preborn babies the facility aborts.
For example, this is how one abortion clinic describes abortions performed up to 14 weeks:
The procedure begins with the gradual and gentle opening of the cervix by a series of narrow, tapered rods called dilators. The doctor will then insert into the uterus a small plastic tube that is attached to a suction machine, similar to the one dentists use to clear the mouth of saliva. The tube is moved within the uterus for a minute or two to remove all of the pregnancy tissue by gentle suction. During the aspiration, you may experience cramping that is similar to heavy menstrual cramps. The surgical abortion procedure generally takes about five to ten minutes to complete.
In the prolife movement, there have been a number of dedicated and outspoken activists who are former employees of Planned Parenthood. Just recently, Live Action writer Nancy Flanders wrote an article about former Planned Parenthood clinic manager Sue Thayer. Abby Johnson and Ramona Tevino are former Planned Parenthood directors who wrote books about their experiences.
Yet there have been other workers who left Planned Parenthood and told their stories throughout the years. Lavonne Wilenken is one.
Another dead baby has been found at a school. This time the tiny person wasn’t found in a bathroom trash bin; instead, the deceased child was stuffed into a backpack and dropped off to the school nurse by its mother.
Apparently the woman who gave birth to the child is a student at urban Syracuse’s William Nottingham High School, where the school nurse, after checking inside a smelly backpack the girl asked her to look after, alerted police to what she found inside.
On May 13th, 2013, Philadelphia abortionist Kermit Gosnell was convicted of first degree murder against three infants and involuntary manslaughter of a pregnant woman, along with multiple felonies and misdemeanors which he committed at his infamous 3801 Lancaster Avenue facility.
Operating under the whitewashed name “Women’s Medical Society,” Gosnell’s “House of Horrors” earned nearly $1.8 million a year as a provider of late-term abortion services that took the lives of preborn and born alive babies, as well as 19 weeks pregnant Karnamaya Mongar. Gosnell and his unlicensed medical workers also inflicted injury and disease on women in their careless practice of almost four decades. Now, the 74-year-old father of six children sits in prison for the remainder of his life.
Last month I wrote about Norma McCorvey, the plaintiff in Roe v. Wade who went on to work in abortion clinics before converting to the pro-life cause and leaving the abortion business for good. In the April 27, 2015, article, McCorvey describes horrific conditions at one of the clinics where she worked. She talks about how the bodies of aborted babies were left to rot in the back room of a clinic that was overrun by rats. McCorvey wrote about these horrible conditions in her book “Won by Love,” in which she described her conversion.
In the years before Roe v. Wade, pro-abortion activists worked on the state level to legalize abortion. Several states revised their abortion laws before Roe struck down all anti-abortion laws nationwide.
One of the first states to have its laws against abortion repealed was New York. New York would become a hub for abortion, as women throughout the country flocked there to have their pregnancies ended and their babies killed.
Dr. Don Sloan, who has performed over 20,000 abortions, wrote about the vote that legalized abortion in New York in his book, “Abortion: A Doctor’s Perspective, a Woman’s Dilemma.” There were not enough votes to allow for repeal, but one “pro-life” legislator changed his vote at the last minute.
On April 22, attorney Kevin Paul testified on behalf of Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountains. He appeared at a hearing of the Colorado Senate Judiciary Committee, where Senate Bill 268 – a fetal homicide law – was being debated. (The bill passed the committee that day.)
Two things must be noted before delving into Paul’s rather outrageous and revealing claims. First, Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountains is a particularly corrupt branch of Planned Parenthood – embroiled in a host of unsavory activities including forced abortions, sending a minor girl back to her rapist, suggesting illegal sexual activity to a minor, and grandly misusing illegally gained taxpayer dollars.
Second, this isn’t the first time a Planned Parenthood spokesperson has revealed the true heart of the organization at a legislative hearing. In Florida, in 2013, Alisa LaPolt Snow argued, on behalf of Planned Parenthood, for the right to post-birth abortions.
You’ll soon discover that Paul’s statements were equally concerning.
