An undercover call to a late-term abortion facility helps to shine a light on why some abortionists practice their grisly trade.
Priests for Life has released a recording of its latest undercover call, which was conducted by Tara Shaver of Abortion Free New Mexico.
The target for this eighth call in the undercover investigation was the Boulder Abortion Clinic, an abortion mill run by Dr. Warren Hern in Boulder, Colorado.
Shaver posed as a healthy woman wanting to abort a healthy baby at 30 weeks. “I've been going to the appointments and everything," she said, "but my husband and I just split up. I just don't want to continue the pregnancy now. So, I have like the estimated due date from the doctor and everything.”
“Okay,” replied the clinic employee.
Then Shaver got down to a serious discussion of whether Dr. Hern would handle the abortion and what the actual cost of the late-term abortion would be.
“Yes, [Dr. Hern] said that he would see you on the 28th (of November),” stated the clinic worker. “And it looks like you'll probably be about 32 weeks at that time, so the fee would likely be either $17,500 or $25,000."
Since late-term abortions are more difficult, and the potential danger to the mother dramatically increases, the cost could reach as high as $25,000.
Priests for Life contends most people do not know, or do not believe, abortions are actually being done on healthy women and babies that late into pregnancy.
Yet there are several locations in this country that do terminate babies at that stage, further suggesting awareness is the first step towards ending such travesties.
