4:40 – Undercover: Hotel Profiting from “Room-Service Abortions” in Albuquerque: City to face historic late-term abortion ban Today
The pro-life organization Live Action has released a second investigative video, highlighting what Live Action President Lila Rose has coined “room-service abortions” – and the hotels that profit off such sinister arrangements. The new undercover recording features an investigator attempting to schedule a 25-week abortion appointment with Southwestern Women’s Options, Albuquerque’s notorious late-term facility. After specifying that the late-term abortion comprises a “week-long procedure,” the staffer directs the investigator to the Plaza Inn – “a hotel that we work in conjunction with” – which offers room rate discounts and free transportation to and from all appointments. Voters in Albuquerque, New Mexico will go to the polls today to vote on the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Ordinance, which would ban abortions after 20 weeks’ gestation. Research shows that children in the womb are able to feel pain at this point in their development, if not sooner. We talk to Lila about this investigation which proves the need for this legislation in NM.
