Anti-Abortion Activists Hit Up Phoenix Clinic for Latest Undercover Video

A national anti-abortion group shot an undercover video "exposing" a "late-term abortion doctor" in Phoenix.

The group, Live Action, does this by having a woman say she's 23 weeks pregnant, and go in this facility with a camera, apparently "exposing" the fact that the abortion process isn't the prettiest thing in the world.

According to the press release we got from Lila Rose, the head activist of Live Action, it appears that the group's upset that the Phoenix doctor admits they wouldn't resuscitate the fetus -- after they repeatedly tell the woman that it won't be born alive.

Rose interprets this as "strongly suggest[ing] that staff there are committing infanticide," calling for a full investigation from Attorney General Eric Holder, along with some other stuff that's never going to happen.

Anyway, here's the video they want you to see, and you can judge for yourself if some wrongdoing's going on here (despite the selective editing):
