Skip to comments.Clinic worker’s statement implies opposition to informed consent

Live Action has just released a new investigative video project, titled Inhuman: Undercover in Americas Late-Term Abortion Industry.
The newsroom has already published a piece with a description of the video, a portion of the press release, as well as the video of the investigation.
The investigation took place at Dr. Emilys Womens Health Center in the Bronx, New York. The video involves a woman 23 weeks pregnant speaking to a clinic worker about a possible abortion, which will be a two-day procedure.
The video, which is slightly over eight minutes, mostly is a conversation between this woman and a specific clinic worker. The clinic worker claims that she has worked at the center since she was 16, meaning itll be 11 years since she started working there. Thus the clinic worker would have had experience and should know how to appropriately discuss such a procedure. This worker seems to be familiar to answering questions, but also does not treat the issue at hand very seriously and laughs a few times throughout the video.
Arguably most horrific of all is as to how this clinic worker says if it comes out, it comes out, and advises the woman to flush it if premature birth happens at home.
Another issue which this clinic worker does not seem to take very seriously is the issue of informed consent. While she is answering the womans questions about a two-day, late-term abortion procedure, her comment brushes aside the complexity of it all when she says to the woman I mean, I dont know why you want to know all this!
New York does not have an informed consent law. Americans United for Life ranked the state as 48th most pro-life for 2012. The Guttmacher Institute also does not include New York in its charts of the 27 states with Detailed Abortion-Specific Informed Consent Requirements or the 8 states with Customary Informed Consent Provisions. And where such laws do exist, such as in South Dakota, where it was required that a woman be told of the abortion and suicide link, Planned Parenthood sued.
New York may be very liberal with its abortion laws. But still, if abortion clinics like Dr. Emilys and abortion workers like the clinic worker there want to claim they are for women and support womens rights and choices, then why are they wondering, with a dismissive nature, as to why a woman wants to know about a two-day procedure she may go through? Keeping women in the dark and laughing them off does not seem to be very pro-choice or pro-woman.
To abortionists it isn’t a child, a life form supposedly created by an act of love, it’s more like a turd you are relieving yourself of.
It is a small child already formed and alive that we rip apart and shred and suck out of your body, but don’t worry, you won’t have to look at it or feel it.
We won’t bury it or grieve for it, we will stick it in a jar and send it over to make sure you are thoroughly cleansed of it , then we will dispose of it, and you can go back and work on the next one we can kill.

The only way they can deal with having an abortion without going mad is to be deaf, dumb, and blind to what they are really doing. Let’s pretend it’s not a baby.
