WASHINGTON, D.C. – At an abortion mill in Little Rock, staff sticks to the tired old mantra, “It’s your body, it’s your choice.”

Abortion Free New Mexico and Priests for Life released another undercover phone call today as part of its months-long effort to expose the reality of late-term abortion. In her call to Little Rock Family Planning Services, pro-life activist Tara Shaver learns that abortion is legal for healthy moms of healthy babies until 21 weeks.

When asked if there are any laws against aborting a healthy baby so late in pregnancy, a staffer named Heather responds: “It’s up to you. That’s your choice. It’s your body, it’s your choice.” Heather also quotes prices: $1,750 for 20 weeks, $2,000 at 21 weeks.

In a statement released with the call, Bud and Tara Shaver of Abortion Free New Mexico and Father Frank Pavone of Priests for Life said:

“Even though Arkansas is considered to be a very pro-life state, in this 29th undercover recording, late-term abortions on healthy mothers carrying healthy babies are business as usual. This has been revealed to be the case time and time again all across America.


Despite claims that late-term abortions are rare and only done in extreme cases, this investigation has conclusively established that late-term abortions are primarily elective procedures. Pre-born babies are being exterminated every single day, brutally ripped out of the sanctuary of their mothers’ wombs. This cannot be ignored by our leaders any longer; please speak up for these babies by contacting your Senators and urging them to vote for the Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act."
