Recently, Pro Life Action Ministries released a video of an anonymous woman telling yet another harrowing Planned Parenthood story. The woman, a former Planned Parenthood client, went to a Minnesota clinic planning to get a late term abortion when she was 22 weeks pregnant. Life News recounts: “on the first day of this two-day abortion procedure, the abortionist searched for the baby with a long needle to inject digoxin and [some]how the baby survived that injection.” Digoxin (in the lethal dosage used in an abortion) usually causes the baby to go into cardiac arrest and die before the abortionist completes the remainder of the procedure.
The woman was having second thoughts on going through with the abortion after reading some information given to her by Pro-Life Action Ministries’ sidewalk counselors. When she went into the clinic the following day to complete the procedure, she wanted to know if there was any way her baby had survived the injection of digoxin. She asked for an ultrasound to see if her child’s heart was still beating, and after learning that he had a healthy heartbeat, according to Life Site News asked the doctors:
“If you guys were to take him out right now while he’s still, his heart rate is still, you know, going, what would you guys do?”
Their reply was haunting, “We don’t tell women this, and a lot of women don’t even ask this question, but if we was to proceed with the abortion and the baby was to come out still alive and active, most likely we would break the baby’s neck.”
The woman decided she did not want to go through with the rest of the procedure, upset at the thought of what the doctors had admitted. She wanted to give her baby another chance at life. But the doctors at Planned Parenthood wouldn’t let her leave easily, according to Life Site News she recounted, “The more I was telling them no, it was more like they were trying to sell me,” she explained. “Like a seller that pushes you and pushes you until you buy … That’s how it felt, as if they were trying to sell me this abortion.”.
Not only is this woman’s story upsetting, what the abortionists admitted to doing to babies who survive abortions violates both federal and state laws in Minnesota. According to the Christian Post:
A 2016 Minnesota statute regarding infants born alive during abortion procedures states they must be “fully recognized as a human person and accorded immediate protection under the law.” Those babies “shall be taken by the responsible medical personnel to preserve [their] life and health.”
The video adds that the federal code defines “person,” “human being,” “child,” and “individual,” to include infants who are born alive at any stage of development.
Babies who are born alive during an abortion procedure are also protected under the Born-Alive Infants Protection Act.
As more and more stories like this woman’s come forward, the evidence that Planned Parenthood’s abortion practices are unethical is a fact that is impossible to ignore. Fortunately, this mother chose life and gave birth to a healthy son, but many other preborn babies have not been so lucky. It’s high time that mothers are educated about abortion practices, and Planned Parenthood is held accountable for it’s crimes again the pre-born.
