Statistics are proving late-term abortions aren't being done because of fetal anomaly, which is contrary to what the public is being told.
The abortion industry has argued that most second- and third-trimester child terminations occur because something is wrong with the baby. But the pro-life group Live Action says that's not true. Spokeswoman Lauren Enriquez tells OneNewsNow her organization obtained records from 2017 on abortions done over a three-day period at Southwestern Women's Options, which has abortuaries in New Mexico and Texas.
"Records from January 31 to February 2 [that year] were pulled that showed these were average abortion days for this abortion chain," Enriquez relays.
Those records show that 54 abortions were committed on children who were 20 weeks gestation or later (a fetus at just 26 weeks has a 90% survival rate). Only 11 of the 54 babies were alleged to have had fetal anomalies.
"We have to crush the narrative the abortion industry pushes that late-term abortion exists solely when a fetal or maternal health problem exists," Enriquez pleads. "That's completely false – and these records from Southwestern Women's Options show that."
The Albuquerque abortion clinic (pictured), part of the chain owned by Curtis Boyd, does abortions up to eight months, and later on a case-by-case basis. The records show that 80% of the late-term abortions are done on healthy children.
On top of that, Boyd is being investigated after the death of his patient Keisha Atkins during a botched, late-term abortion. Atkins was six months pregnant when the abortionist operated, and Keisha died from a subsequent infection following the procedure.
Boyd, alongside the abortion chain, is being sued after the Atkins family pressed charges to avenge the loss of their daughter.
