New Live Action video: “We will not resuscitate” a born-alive baby after abortion

Via LifeNews, the latest undercover video in Live Action’s effort to expose late-term abortion practices has been released, and it’s yet another walk through a euphemism-filled alternative universe. In this case, though, the description of the disposition of the remains exposes the “clump of cells” lies of the abortion industry. The attending abortionist explains what happens to the baby after the abortion in almost bucolic terms:
When asked how the clinic disposes of the baby after the abortion, the doctor says:
“So the fetus and everything that goes along with it — the placenta, all of that — is sent to a crema… what do they call it? Like, a funeral home. And they’re cremated, and then the ashes spread out in the desert, or you know, the foothills or [inauduble] … like one of the hills they take them to and spread the ashes into nature[.]”
That sounds like what families do when loved ones pass away. Do clinics do this with the products of liposuction? Discarded appendixes? Removed gallbladders? Doubtful. The clinic and this abortionist seem to understand that they’re discarding a whole person, and not just a clump of cells.
Which is why this is even more incomprehensible:
Sometimes they are [alive], yeah. But it doesn’t–it doesn’t necessarily mean that it will come out whole. ‘Cause they use suction, plus they use instruments so sometimes the fetuses don’t come out–you know, it’s not complete…
Investigator: But if it does come out whole…I mean, are–will they resuscitate it? Like, will I have to take care of it?
Linda: Uh-uh… No…They do not resuscitate.
And as in earlier videos, the abortionist warns her patient about going to a hospital if she goes into labor:
No, call us first…if you showed up in an average emergency room with an emergency room physician who’s not a gynecologist, probably has never seen or done a termination, they will treat you as though you are somebody with a desired pregnancy…
Investigator: So they would basically like try to take care of it.
Dr. Mercer: Right they would intervene and do all kinds of crazy things that you don’t need to have done to you…
Speaking of euphemisms, don’t miss this Green Room post, either.
