Activists caught in another lie to sell late-term abortion

21-week babyA pro-life leader maintains that another lie from the abortion industry has been proven false.

The abortion lobby has insisted for years that abortion laws must contain certain provisions that allow for late-term abortions.

Pro-Life Action League Executive Director Eric Scheidler has listened to such pro-abortion rhetoric from the left for years.

“We're hearing a lot about late-term abortion really being a matter of these heartbreaking situations where there's a threat to the life of the mother or there's some kind of horrific fetal anomaly that's going to lead to either the demise [of the child] or a life of pain and misery,” Scheidler explained.

However, it is argued that research today shows that such arguments are a lie that the abortion industry and abortion lobby have been hoping the public – and lawmakers – will believe.

“The data really shows that the vast majority of late-term abortions are done for completely elective reasons,” Scheidler divulged. “That is to say, for reasons of convenience and lifestyle, and have nothing whatsoever to do with the health of the mother or the health of the unborn child.”

It is generally found that late-term abortions are carried out because the child would be a financial burden or would require extra parental responsibility.

For example, a survey by Secular Pro-Life – conducted in Arizona – found that 80 percent of late-term abortions were elective, and a mere 20 percent were for the health or life of the mother, or due to fetal abnormalities.
