Abortionist Leah Torres storyPro-lifers in Alabama will soon greet a controversial abortionist who joked about cutting the throats of unborn babies.  

The financially troubled West Alabama Women's Center, located in Tuscaloosa, has been sold to the Yellowhammer Fund and a new abortionist, Leah Torres, is taking over the facility as “medical director.”  

In a glowing story about Torres, published at RewireNews.com, a Q-and-A allowed the abortionist to defend her plans to expand abortion in the state because children are neglected, she says, so “reproductive health” addresses the issue of food scarcity.

“When you’re having children, are we as a society able to feed them? That’s important,” she told the online publication. “Are we as a society able to educate them?”

Sarah Neely of the Charismatic Episcopal Church tells OneNewsNow that Torres made national news in 2018 with a controversial post on social media that mocked pro-life activists for their views on the unborn. 

“The quote was, ‘You know fetuses can't scream, right, I transect the cord first.’ And so some people freaked out about that a little bit,” Neely recalls. “It sounded like she was implying that she cut babies vocal cords during abortions, which would be very illegal.”

In that same story, the wire service reported Torres was suing three media outlets, including Western Journal and The Daily Caller, for what her attorney called "fake information" that caused online harassment.

The AP story cited the abortionist's Twitter remark but failed to quote it directly:

Torres noted that fetuses don’t have the ability to scream and that she cuts the “cord” to perform the abortion. Torres later clarified that she was referring to the umbilical cord, not the vocal cord.
