16 / 04 / 2010 - Undercover video exposes abortion clinic misinformation about fetal development
A new undercover video from pro-life investigators shows medically inaccurate abortion counseling at a Milwaukee Planned Parenthood clinic. A staffer tells a woman six to eight weeks pregnant that her baby has "no arms, no legs, no heart no head, no brain.”
The video of the taxpayer-funded clinic was released by Live Action.
Claiming that images of abortions are fabricated, the staffer says that an unborn child at six to eight weeks has no “identifiable parts” and is just “fetal matter.” The staffer also emphasizes the difficulties of adoption and urges the woman to obtain an abortion as soon as possible.
Wisconsin law reportedly requires women to receive medically accurate information before obtaining an abortion.
Live Action president Lila Rose charged that the new footage confirms deceptive practices at Planned Parenthood.
"Planned Parenthood has an abortion- first mentality that is driven both by ideology and the desire for money," Rose commented. "Since women will often choose against abortion if they learn the scientific facts about the unborn child inside the womb, Planned Parenthood distorts basic facts in an attempt to perform more abortions."
In December the pro-life group released a video taken at an Appleton, Wisconsin abortion clinic in which another counselor gives incorrect information. The group has called its effort to document deceptive abortion counseling the Rosa Acuna Project.
Live Action has also staged investigations exposing abortion clinics which do not report suspected cases of statutory rape as required by state law.
