TITUSVILLE, FL – Priests for Life, working in conjunction with Abortion Free New Mexico, today released an undercover phone call to Planned Parenthood in Billings, Montana.
Although the Planned Parenthood staffer seemed guarded about giving out information, she confirmed that it is legal to kill a healthy baby up until 21 weeks, 6 days into a healthy mother’s pregnancy.
Father Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, and Tara Shaver of Abortion Free New Mexico issued the following statement:
"Montana is yet another state in America where late-term abortions are being obtained for any reason at all. Planned Parenthood of Montana in Billings is the sole provider of these barbaric late-term abortions in the state. This undercover investigation continues to expose the fact that healthy mothers carrying healthy babies are obtaining abortions beyond 20 weeks of pregnancy all across the country.
“Abortions this late in the pregnancy are exterminating the lives of babies that can feel pain and deserve protection. We urge both Democrats and Republicans in the U.S. Senate to come together to pass common sense legislation that would protect these babies that scientific evidence has established can feel pain and are fully human."
Today’s call is part of an ongoing series that Priests for Life and Abortion Free New Mexico are working on to demonstrate to Americans that late-term abortion is legal and does not require dire circumstances for the baby or the mother. As the calls reveal, healthy babies are aborted at least up until 32 weeks.
Several days ago, incumbent U.S. Sen. Jon Tester toured the Planned Parenthood abortion business in Billings and sent out a Tweet about it “critical health services.” Montana residents might want to ask their senator if he considers the abortion of a late-term pregnancy a critical health service, and then vote accordingly.
