A top Planned Parenthood abortionist explains how to properly destroy a fetus accidentally born alive — in more accurate words, a baby — after a botched abortion in undercover footage released Wednesday, saying the “key” is to “pay attention to who is in the room.”
DeShawn Taylor is discussing abortion techniques with the undercover actors posing as researchers interested in obtaining fetal tissue in the video, when the conversation turns to infants born alive. Researchers require intact limbs and organs that are not chemically poisoned, so an abortionist looking to harvest parts has an easier time if the child comes out whole. But at the same time, the human being has to be killed before it comes out of the womb in order to avoid a violation of the federal partial-birth abortion ban.
“It’s not a matter of how I feel about it coming out intact,” Taylor tells the actors. “But I’ve got to worry about my staff and people’s feelings about it coming out looking like a baby — so yeah that becomes an issue.”
“I just don’t even want to send a full fetus for … we have the people who do our paperwork for the fetal death certificates,” she adds, expounding on the pitfalls of a fetus born intact, whether dead or alive. “They email us calling them babies. Baby this, baby that, baby so and so. That’s creepy!”
