New research has found that more than two-thirds of pro-abortion Americans disagree with legislation allowing abortion up to the moment of birth.
The YouGov study was conducted in light of a new law in New York which effectively legalises late-term abortions for any reason.
It comes as an investigation reveals that US abortion clinics have been supplying scientific researchers with the organs of unborn babies for experimentation.
Sanctity of life
The YouGov study revealed that nearly eight in ten Americans oppose abortions in the third trimester – after 28 weeks.
Of pro-abortion Americans, 68 per cent still opposed killing a child the day before birth.
Catherine Glenn Foster, President of Americans United for Life, said: “This survey vividly reveals both the American people’s common sense appreciation for the sanctity of life and the widespread horror, even among self-identified pro-choice Americans, of new laws like New York’s that effectively allow abortion up until the moment of delivery.”
Around the same time as the study, an investigation uncovered evidence of procedures that involve cutting out the organs of aborted babies and fusing them onto lab mice.
The aim is to force the rodents to develop ‘human’ immune systems, so researchers can develop treatments for diseases such as AIDS and cancer.
Phelim McAleer, who produced ‘Gosnell’ a film about a mass abortionist, said: “Aborted babies’ bodies are a very valuable commodity in today’s America. Research institutions, elite universities, medical centres pay a lot of money for baby parts.”
Spokesman for Planned Parenthood Eric Ferrero previously admitted: “At several of our health centres, we help patients who want to donate tissue for scientific research.”
Pregnancy as disability
The New York Times further revealed the abortion giant has been accused of discriminating against pregnant employees and making female staff scared to inform managers they are expecting.
It also claimed that most of Planned Parenthood’s clinics do not provide paid maternity leave, and instead offer partially paid disability leave.
