Why does Planned Parenthood charge so much for abortion at 20 weeks?

Why does Planned Parenthood charge so much for abortion at 20 weeks?

  • Report by Priests for Life, the nation’s largest Catholic pro-life organization dedicated to ending abortion and euthanasia.

As Alveda King, director of Civil Rights for the Unborn, and Priests for Life staff have begun calling U.S. senators’ offices about the upcoming vote on the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, Abortion Free New Mexico and Priests for Life today released two new undercover calls to Planned Parenthood abortion centers that perform late term-abortions beyond 20 weeks of pregnancy. These abortions are being performed on healthy mothers carrying healthy babies.

If passed by the Senate and signed by President Trump, the Pain-Capable bill would ban abortion after 20 weeks, with some exceptions.

Planned Parenthood is the nation’s largest abortion provider killing over 321,384 babies in 2017 alone. In 2016 Planned Parenthood received $543.7 million tax payer dollars from the U.S. government and in spite of being a 501c3 non-profit organization they profited $98.5 million dollars in 2017.

Father Frank Pavone of Priests for Life and Bud and Tara Shaver of Abortion Free New Mexico released the following statement regarding the latest calls:

“Despite the claims that Planned Parenthood cares so much about women, the organization is not doing abortions for free. In fact, this undercover investigation exposes that Planned Parenthood in Salt Lake City, Utah, charges the highest fee of any abortion provider in the nation, a staggering $4,000 for an abortion at 20 weeks of pregnancy.

“In the second undercover call exposing Planned Parenthood’s complicity in late-term abortions, Iowa is revealed to be another state performing abortions up to 21 weeks of pregnancy. In July 2017, Iowa lowered its abortion limit from 22 weeks to 21 weeks of pregnancy. By reducing the gestational limit by just one week, lives have been saved.

“Next week the Senate will have the ability to pass legislation that will save even more lives by ensuring that every state in America will protect pain-capable babies starting at 20 weeks of pregnancy.

“Contact your senators, email them these videos, and urge them to support the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act. This is a matter of life and death.”

Evangelist King noted that in her phone calls to Senate staffers, she is encouraging the lawmakers to vote for that bill, and letting them know she is praying for them.

“I pray that God leads every man and woman in the Senate to do the right thing and vote to save the babies,” she said. “It’s a small step to take, and it’s the right step.”

Most important things for 20-week abortion in Richmond? $1,700 cash and a ride home

Most important things for 20-week abortion in Richmond? $1,700 cash and a ride home

  • Report by Priests for Life, the nation’s largest Catholic pro-life organization dedicated to ending abortion and euthanasia.

In the latest undercover call released by Abortion Free New Mexico and Priests for Life, Virginia is revealed to be another state in America that is performing dangerous late-term abortions beyond the 20th week of pregnancy on healthy mothers carrying healthy babies.

A staffer at the Richmond Medical Center for Women is adamant that the fee of $1,700 must be paid on the first day of the two-day procedure, and if the mom doesn’t have a ride home the second day, she’ll be admitted to the hospital for $9,000 out-of-pocket cost.

In a statement released today, Bud and Tara Shaver of Abortion Free New Mexico and Father Frank Pavone of Priests for Life said

“While abortion advocates claim that abortions are safe and rare, this investigation has revealed that late-term abortions are a common occurrence in many states all across the country. Second-trimester abortions are so risky for the mother that, in Virginia, abortionists are required to complete the final day of the procedure at a local hospital.

“Not only do late term abortions put the lives of women at risk, the procedure itself involves the painful dismemberment of the baby in the womb. In fact, Supreme Court Justice Kennedy, in his dissent to the U.S. Supreme Court’s 2000 Stenberg v. Carhart decision, observed that in dismemberment abortions, “The fetus, in many cases, dies just as a human adult or child would: It bleeds to death as it is torn limb from limb. The fetus can be alive at the beginning of the dismemberment process and can survive for a time while its limbs are being torn off.”

The U.S. Senate has the opportunity to put an end to late-term abortions by passing the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act (S. 1922). Please contact your Senators and urge them to pass this common-sense legislation that will protect both mother and child from dangerous late term abortions.”

Frightening words: “Dr. Carhart is our only doctor here”

Frightening words: “Dr. Carhart is our only doctor here”

  • Report by Priests for Life, the nation’s largest Catholic pro-life organization dedicated to ending abortion and euthanasia.

Abortion Free New Mexico and Priests for Life are pressing forward with their undercover investigation to expose late-term abortion across America.

The latest phone call reveals notorious abortionist Leroy Carhart’s willingness to kill healthy babies of healthy mothers up to 22 weeks of pregnancy in Nebraska.

Bud and Tara Shaver of Abortion Free New Mexico and Father Frank Pavone of Priests for Life released the following statement regarding Carhart:

“Carhart has a sordid history of bouncing from state to state, performing abortions into the latest stages of pregnancy. This notorious circuit riding abortionist’s opportunistic manipulation of the varying late-term abortion laws nationwide, resulted in the tragic death of Jennifer Morbelli in Maryland in February 2013, due to complications sustained during a third-trimester abortion at 33 weeks. The abortionist had already left Maryland to return to Nebraska when Mrs. Morbelli went into distress. Her family had to take her a local emergency room, where she died.

“Carhart’s careless and deadly behavior is the result of inconsistent laws between the states and demonstrates how vitally urgent it is for the Senate to pass the Pain- Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, scheduled for a vote next week. This bill will protect babies at 20 weeks of development and beyond and will make it impossible for abortionists like Carhart to kill babies in the late second trimester and third trimesters of pregnancy.”

  • A previous recording in this undercover investigation revealed Carhart’s willingness to kill healthy babies of healthy mothers up to 28 weeks into pregnancy in Bethesda, MD

Priests for Life is leading a campaign to urge Democratic incumbents up for re-election in 10 Red States to vote in favor of the Pain-Capable Bill. Residents of the 10 states have been invited to sign an open letter to their senators.
