New undercover call details late-term abortion procedure

ALBUQUERQUE — Abortion Free New Mexico and Priests for Life have released a new video taken from an undercover phone call placed to Southwestern Women’s Options late-term abortion facility that clearly explains how some second and third trimester abortions are performed in New Mexico.

A healthy woman posing as 25 weeks pregnant is given an overview by an abortion worker detailing how the 3-4 day labor and delivery procedure will take place. Late-term abortion is a grueling process that begins every Tuesday with the killing of a baby by a lethal injection of the medication digoxin and culminates at the end of the week when labor is induced and the mother delivers a stillborn child. Pre-born babies can survive outside the womb at 25 weeks, and sometimes earlier in pregnancy.

In a recent rare interview, Curtis Boyd, owner of Southwestern Women’s Options claims that he provides abortions to women “who are dying if they do not get the abortion, women who have severe congenital defects.” However, if a woman was truly dying she would never subject herself to a 3-4 day abortion procedure. She would go to a hospital where if it were absolutely necessary to end the pregnancy, the pre-born child would be removed from her womb (alive) via a Caesarean section.

In fact, a previous undercover recording Abortion Free New Mexico and Priests for Life released demonstrated that Southwestern Women’s Options screens their patients for health indicators to ensure that the mother is healthy enough for a late-term procedure. It would be medical negligence to perform a lengthy abortion procedure on a woman whose life is truly at risk.

Curtis Boyd and his staff at Southwestern Women’s Options are actually the ones placing the lives of women at risk by performing dangerous late-term abortions. In fact, a Southwestern Women’s Options consent form obtained by Abortion Free New Mexico’s Tara Shaver in 2012 states that abortions done after 18 weeks are more dangerous than carrying the baby to full term.

Another video released by Abortion Free New Mexico and Priests for Life exposed that Southwestern Women’s Options isn’t in the habit of performing late-term abortions to save the lives of women as Boyd claims, but is instead operating under an archaic eugenic mindset that empowers their abortionists to willingly abort pre-born babies who are found to have “congenital defects.”

Killing babies who are handicapped is at the heart of Boyd’s late-term abortion business.

“Southwestern Women’s Options uses an injection to stop the hearts of pre-born babies and a concoction of several medications to artificially induce labor in women and then sends them away to wait for their child to be born dead. This precarious cocktail of medications is and has resulted in serious life-threatening complications. In May 2011 a patient at Southwestern Women’s Options was rushed to the emergency room after her uterus ruptured during the very same procedure documented in this call. She was 35 weeks pregnant,” Ms. Shaver said. “Late-term abortions are not, as some say, ‘only done to save the lives of women,’ they are performed to make Curtis Boyd huge profits at the expense of precious human lives.

In this call a fee of $8,500 fee is quoted for an abortion at 25 weeks. A search of Curtis Boyd in Albuquerque shows that his abortion business has an “annual revenue of $1 to $2.5 million.”

“Americans continue, in large majorities, to reject late-term abortion,” said Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life. “We will continue to expose it by undercover phone calls, so that the existence of these procedures, and their utter barbarity, will be indisputable in the minds and hearts of more and more of our fellow citizens, and that they will take action to end abortion.” USA, LLC

Are We No More Than Machines?

Author makes persuasive case that science doesn’t have all the answers about humanity
SAN FRANCISCO, Aug.15, 2017 /Christian Newswire/ — Many scientists and philosophers believe that each of us is just a mortal, and that we are no better than any other kind of animal — indeed, just a machine, no more than a temporary association of molecules that will one day disband in order to become other things. By their account, there is no afterlife and the existence of mankind is purely the outcome of chance events. Michael Augros demonstrates how an astute use of common sense and a study of common human experience reveal that there is more to you — much more — than science could possibly say in his new book, THE IMMORTAL IN YOU: How Human Nature is More Than Science Can Say.

Augros provides a modern response to the ancient exhortation “Know thyself,” delivering a wealth of fresh, powerful and uplifting ideas about what it is to be human that demolish the errors of scientism. He meticulously refutes the notions that there never was any tendency, natural or supernatural, to produce life and the human mind, and that the universe is hostile or indifferent toward you, and you occupy no special place within it.

Augros refuses to bash science but makes a persuasive case that science doesn’t have all the answers — or even the best questions. He explains why the soul, mind and human purpose are real, even if the sciences can’t detect them.

“A fascinating journey of intelligent exploration into the greatest and most mysterious thing in the universe: your self, your nature and your destiny,” Peter Kreeft, Ph.D., professor of philosophy at Boston College, says of THE IMMORTAL IN YOU. “This is far and away the best book I have ever read about the nature of mankind as far as natural reason can know it. On a scale of 1 to 10, I have to give it a 12.”
