At Las Vegas mill, “birth control” means late-term abortion on demand


Priests for Life



TITUSVILLE, FL -- It’s just another day at the office for a staffer at the Birth Control Care Center in Las Vegas.

In the 22nd undercover call released by Priests for Life and Abortion Free New Mexico, Tara Shaver, posing as a healthy mom pregnant for 22 weeks with a healthy baby, asks if it’s legal in Nevada to abort a baby so far along in the pregnancy. She’s assured it is, is told she can come in the following day and that the procedure will cost $2,300.

The staffer sounds like a young woman but seems as if she is already immune to the barbarity of this simple business transaction. If she even thinks about the human being about to be killed, it’s not evident in her voice.

Father Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, and Bud and Tara Shaver of Abortion Free New Mexico, released the following statement today:

"Las Vegas, Nevada, joins the growing list of states that this undercover investigation has exposed that are conducting late-term abortions. The state of Nevada allows abortions through 24 weeks of pregnancy. The receptionist at the Birth Control Care Center tells the caller that it's no problem to have an abortion in their facility up to 23 weeks and 3 days, even though both mom and baby are healthy. This is a crime against humanity, but it is 100 percent legal in much of our nation. And it’s happening every day.”

On its website, the abortion business says it is “the oldest and most trusted abortion clinic in Las Vegas, Nevada providing abortion services for residents in Nevada, Southern Arizona and Utah.” It opened in January 1973, the same month that Roe v. Wade legalized abortion.
