The abortionist who earlier this year boasted she prevents unborn babies from screaming by cutting their vocal cords is stirring controversy again, reports Breitbart News.
Responding to a tweet wondering what God thinks of her profession, Utah abortionist Leah Torres said, “God performs way more abortions than I do, so there’s that.”
Last week she tweeted that she had no problem using abortion as “birth prevention.”
“I feel fine about that,” wrote Torres, who works at Planned Parenthood’s Metro Health Center in Salt Lake City.
Breitbart noted earlier this week that abortion was the No. 1 cause of death worldwide in 2018, with more than 41 million. By contrast, 8.2 million people died from cancer, 5 million from smoking and 1.7 million from HIV/AIDS.
Unborn ‘can’t scream’
In March, WND reported, Torres caused a social-media uproar when she explained that the unborn babies she kills “can’t scream,” because she cuts “the cord” first.
She was exchanging tweets with a pro-lifer regarding whether she is in the abortion business for the money when the pro-lifer asked her: “Do you hear the heartbeats when you lay down at night?”
Torres replied: “No. You know fetuses can’t scream, right? I transect the cord 1st so there’s really no opportunity, if they’re even far enough along to have a larnyx. I won’t apologize for performing medicine. I’m also a “uterus ripper outer,” if that’s how you’d like to describe hysterectomy.”
Amid a backlash, Torres deleted her tweet, but in a subsequent tweet she insisted her message had been misinterpreted.
“I thank you, my friends, for your continued support as well as correcting the misinterpretation of my post,” she wrote. “If you are someone who thinks I’m evil, it also means you think pregnant people are commodities to be used for gestation. *That* is evil. And ghoulish. And sick.”
David Daleiden, known for his undercover video investigation of Planned Parenthood’s sale of the body parts of unborn babies, said his Center for Medical Progress didn’t investigate Planned Parenthood of Utah, in part, because “their abortion doctors were the only ones who actually scared me.”
He thanked Torres “for the very honest reminder.”
Torres, in a 2013 Twitter exchange with conservative pundit Dana Loesch, claimed abortionists save lives.
Loesch asked Torres to “please show me how many children’s lives have been saved by abortion.”
“There you go again,” Torres replied. “You make assumptions and you do not read carefully. Abortions save women’s lives. Period. Every. Single. Time.”
