Footage from an Appleton, WI, Planned Parenthood shows clinic staff, including the abortionist, lying to two of our undercover investigators about fetal development and encouraging the one who is pregnant to obtain an abortion because “women die having babies.”
In the undercover video, when the two women ask a Planned Parenthood counselor if the pregnant woman’s 10-week-old preborn child has a heartbeat, the counselor emphasizes the term “heart tones” and answers, “Heartbeat is when the fetus is active in the uterus–can survive–which is about seventeen or eighteen weeks.”
On the contrary, embryologists agree that the heartbeat begins around threeweeksfrom fertilization.
Wisconsin’s informed-consent law requires that women receive medically accurate information before undergoing an abortion.
A staffer tells a woman who is reportedly six to eight weeks pregnant that, at this stage, her baby has “no arms, no legs, no heart, no head, no brain.” The staffer states that the preborn child at this stage has no “identifiable parts” and is just “fetal matter.” The staffer emphasizes the difficulties of adoption, urges the woman to obtain an abortion as soon as possible, and claims that abortion images are fabricated.
When our undercover investigator, purportedly 10 weeks pregnant, asks the clinician when her baby’s heart begins to beat, Sarah replies, “It’s around…I think the eighth or the ninth week that you can hear the heartbeat.”
The heart heart actually begins beating around three weeks after fertilization.
The Planned Parenthood clinician also insists, “It’s not a baby, it’s a fetus,” which, she claims, is “not like a person.”
