TITUSVILLE, FL -- In the latest undercover call released by Abortion Free New Mexico and Priests for Life, Virginia is revealed to be another state in America that is performing dangerous late-term abortions beyond the 20th week of pregnancy on healthy mothers carrying healthy babies.

A staffer at the Richmond Medical Center for Women is adamant that the fee of $1,700 must be paid on the first day of the two-day procedure, and if the mom doesn’t have a ride home the second day, she’ll be admitted to the hospital for $9,000 out-of-pocket cost.

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

“While abortion advocates claim that abortions are safe and rare, this investigation has revealed that late-term abortions are a common occurrence in many states all across the country. Second-trimester abortions are so risky for the mother that, in Virginia, abortionists are required to complete the final day of the procedure at a local hospital. 

“Not only do late term abortions put the lives of women at risk, the procedure itself involves the painful dismemberment of the baby in the womb. In fact, Supreme Court Justice Kennedy, in his dissent to the U.S. Supreme Court’s 2000 Stenberg v. Carhart decision, observed that in dismemberment abortions, “The fetus, in many cases, dies just as a human adult or child would: It bleeds to death as it is torn limb from limb. The fetus can be alive at the beginning of the dismemberment process and can survive for a time while its limbs are being torn off.”

The U.S. Senate has the opportunity to put an end to late-term abortions by passing the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act (S. 1922). Please contact your Senators and urge them to pass this common-sense legislation that will protect both mother and child from dangerous late term abortions."

why are the states not required to report accurate abortion figures to the cdc? why are they the only agency that gets to report whatever they want? any other agency would be closed, fined, and have possible jail time for false records. why are there incomplete and inaccurate records for blotched, trimesters not recorded, born alive, hospitalizations, infections, deaths??
