TITUSVILLE, FL – It’s all about choice at Metropolitan Medical Associates in New Jersey.
As part of its series of undercover calls to abortion businesses across the nation, Priests for Life and Abortion Free New Mexico today released a call from the Englewood, N.J., facility that does abortions through 24 weeks for healthy mothers carrying healthy babies.
Father Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, and Bud and Tara Shaver, founders of Abortion Free New Mexico, released the following statement about the call:
“Metropolitan Medical Associates in Englewood, N.J. is another abortion mill in America that is performing late-term abortions on healthy mothers carrying healthy babies through 24 weeks of pregnancy. When the undercover caller clarifies, to make absolutely sure that she can have the abortion even though she and the baby are healthy, the abortion worker tells her that ‘It just has to be something that you want.’
“In too many states across this nation these abortions occur daily and are killing babies who can feel pain and are viable human beings. It is imperative that congressional leaders take these facts into account and vote for the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act in order to protect these helpless babies.”
In 2009, Metropolitan Medical paid $1.9 million in an out-of-court settlement brought by a woman who suffered a botched abortion there and later had to undergo a hysterectomy. On the premises, state health inspectors found a rusted crochet hook used to remove IUDs, as well as dirty forceps and a quarter-inch of dirt and debris under the examining tables. At the time, the business was performing 10,000 abortions a year.
Priests for Life is the nation’s largest Catholic pro-life organization dedicated to ending abortion and euthanasia. For more information, visit www.priestsforlife.org.
