On 15 March 2016, the U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee conducted a hearing entitled ‘Late-Term Abortion: Protecting Babies Born Alive and Capable of Pain’, during consideration of late-term abortion ban legislation.
In conjunction, Operation Rescue released a report on the number of late-term abortion facilities in the nation.
Currently in the USA, there are 511 active surgical abortion sites.
Of those, 162 surgical abortion places abort babies at 20 weeks gestation or later, and 122 of those say they do not abort babies after 24 weeks.
Five abortion sites openly abort babies throughout all nine months of pregnancy, including Martin Haskell’s Women’s Med Center in Dayton, OH.
