On the eve of Texas Gov. Rick Perry’s special legislative session to debate a bill to ban most abortions after 20 weeks, a disturbing new video has surfaced in which a New Mexico abortion doctor tells a patient undergoing a three-day abortion process for her 27-week-old baby to sit on a toilet if the fetus starts to come out unexpectedly while away from the clinic.
In the latest investigation from the pro-life group Live Action, which has produced five other controversial video and audio investigations at abortion clinics in their “Inhuman” campaign, the doctor recommends that the woman sit on the toilet for the stillbirth until abortion clinic aides arrive to take the fetus away. A clinic counselor told the woman not to look in the toilet, suggesting she put a towel across her legs.
Dr. Carmen Landau of Albuquerque’s Southwest Women’s Options clinic also told the woman investigator not to call 911 if the baby unexpectedly started to come out if the patient wasn’t in the abortion clinic.
From the transcript of the investigation provided to Secrets:
Dr. Landau: Yeah you do not need 911, you need us.
Dr. Landau: We’re your one-stop shop.
Woman: Yeah. Because the hos — they, they, they, don’t, I mean what, what, what, what would they do different there?
Dr. Landau: No it would just be terrible. Because then you’re gonna, “oh, I’m having a third trimester abortion” and they’re all “Aghhh,” and no, you don’t need —
Woman: And they try to like, have you do things.
Dr. Landau: Who knows. Not something that we would want to find out, what they would try to do.
Woman: You don’t wanna —
Dr. Landau: Yeah that would just be weird, and not that’s just not what you need. You need us to take care of you, ’cause we know how to take care of women in this situation.
Woman: Yeah, oh, OK, yeah. And the same thing if I, if it, pops out when I’m at the hotel —
Dr. Landau: Exactly. If you felt like all of a sudden, if you’re one of those lucky people that has no pain in contractions, and you’re all of a sudden like, “agh something’s coming out,” then you sit on the toilet, then you call us, and you unlock the hotel room and we’ll come in and take care of you.
Woman: Sit on the toilet and call you. OK.
Note at 2:02:
Counselor:…it’s bottom-down, it’ll insert through the–the baby’s bottom, ok? If it’s head down it’ll be inserted through the head–the cranium.
She said, “the baby’s bottom”, now let that sink in for a minute. A baby – and Doctor Landau is willing to kill it and it’s legal. This is truly inhumane and unthinkable how our society allows this to continue.
