Bronx, New York — A new undercover video released by a prominent pro-life organization shows an abortion worker explaining how a baby that is born alive after a failed abortion procedure would be placed into a jar of solution to be killed.
Live Action, which has conducted undercover investigations on the abortion industry for nearly two decades, uploaded footage on Sunday of a 23-week pregnant woman asking a staff member at Women’s Health Center in Bronx, New York about how her abortion procedure would be carried out.
“Is it pretty big?” the woman asks, wearing a spy camera. “Do you know how big it is?”
“It’s six months,” the employee answers. “It’s fully grown.”
“So, it has all the part and stuff, you think?” the woman inquires.
“Yeah,” the staff member answers.
The woman then questions the worker about how the baby is removed, and if he or she comes out in one piece during the procedure.
“They start falling apart,” the employee answers, explaining that the baby will be ripped out of the womb by a suction device.
“I don’t know why you want to know all this. Just do it!” she adds, laughing.
“If it did come out in one piece, it’s very small,” the worker outlines. “So they would still have to put it in a container – like, a jar – with solution and send it to the lab.”
The pregnant woman then asks what would be done if the baby is born alive and is “twitching.”
“The solution would make it stop,” the employee replies with a slight laugh. “It’s not going to be moving around in the jar. … That’s the whole purpose of the solution.”
“[What if it] looked like it was breathing or something like that?” the woman inquires.
“It will automatically stop. It won’t be able to breathe anymore,” the worker advises. “Not in the solution.”
She explains that the baby will then be sent to the lab and that the child will be weighed and examined to “make sure there’s no pieces left in you.”
The employee continues to outline the procedure.
“The seaweed [sticks] is where the heartbeat — that’s what kills the heartbeat,” she notes. “They’re toxic. If you don’t come back the next day, then your life is at risk.”
The woman then asks what to do if the baby is born at home.
“If it comes out, flush it,” the worker responds. “[I]f anything, you know, put it in a bag or something or somewhere and bring it to us.”
She advises that late-term abortions occur at the facility on a regular basis.
“We have two-day procedures all the time,” she said. “Like, every day.”
“Dr. Kermit Gosnell is not alone,” said Live Action President Lila Rose in a news release announcing the undercover footage. “The gruesome and inhuman practices exposed in Gosnell’s ‘House of Horrors’ are business as usual for the abortion industry in America. These children’s lives are brutally destroyed when they are the most defenseless. This isn’t ‘choice’; this is murder.”
