TITUSVILLE, FL -- Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, announced that another undercover phone call was released today, proving that abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy occur legally in America without any medical reason.

Priests for Life and Abortion Free New Mexico have partnered on an educational project about late-term abortion, for which more than over a dozen calls so far, into eight different states and the District of Columbia, have confirmed what we already knew but what many citizens deny, namely, that healthy babies carried by healthy mothers are being legally killed in the later stages of pregnancy. This is a practice that most Americans (even who call themselves pro-choice) oppose.

Fr. Frank Pavone and Bud and Tara Shaver issued the following statement:

"In this latest undercover recording, the abortion worker at Affiliated Medical Services in Milwaukee, WI, crystallizes the reality about late-term abortions occurring all across the country, 'It's really your choice,' the clinic worker explains."

When the caller asks about Wisconsin state law, the worker tells the caller that it is legal through 21 weeks and 6 days of pregnancy. The caller then clarifies by asking, 

Caller: "But it's fine if there's like no abnormalities or anything, just like for any reason?" 

Abortion Worker: "No, um getting an abortion doesn't require that you have a fetal anomaly or an abnormality, it's really your choice."

Caller: "Even after 20 weeks?"

Abortion Worker: "Yes."

We urge all citizens, whether pro-life, pro-choice, or unsure, to join with us in bringing an end to these horrific practices.”

The U.S. Senate currently has an opportunity to do just that by passing the Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, likely to be voted on next month. Please contact your Senators now. Find out more and sign up for action alerts at
