Washington (CNN) — An anti-abortion group that released two controversial undercover videos from a months-long investigation of abortion service providers has vowed to soon put out six more — perhaps releasing a third as early as this week.
The group, Live Action, claims that all of the videos will show varying degrees of an illegal act: abortion clinic workers admitting to being willing to kill babies who are born alive after botched abortions.
“There definitely are more videos coming out,” Live Action Founder and President Lila Rose told CNN. “There’s likely going to be another one coming out this week. And then more in coming weeks. So, you know, we’re again focused on reaching as many people possible with … kind of the expose of what’s happening on a daily basis in the [late-term] abortion industry.”
Rose also admits an attempt to draw more attention to aPhiladelphia case with such gruesome allegations that it could aid the anti-abortion cause. Prosecutors accuse abortion doctor Kermit Gosnell of running a “house of horrors” where babies were born alive — then murdered, charges the doctor denies.
After a six-month investigation, Rose explained her group’s videos.
“In many of them, there’s definitely themes going on here,” she said. “So there’s a theme of infanticide or the willingness to commit infanticide. There’s the theme of the danger to women. There’s the reality of the brutality of the late-term abortion procedure. So all of these realities will continue to emerge.”
Rose said the undercover videos are designed to draw attention to the practices in, what she called the “vastly unregulated [abortion] industry.” On Wednesday, Live Action will protest outside a clinic featured in one of its videos — the D.C.-based Washington Surgi-Clinic.
Live Action is urging local, state and federal health officials as well as law enforcement toward two actions: shutting down the clinics seen in the videos and launching full-scale investigations.
At issue: what should happen if a baby is born alive during an abortion procedure.
