Dr. Carmen Landau, an abortion doctor in Albuquerque, New Mexico, was caught on camera by a pro-life activist comparing the injection used to kill a baby in the womb as "like any shot, you know, like a flu shot, or a vaccine, really."

Live Action, the non-profit pro-life activist group that created the video, released a statment in conjunction with it by its president, Lila Rose, saying:

"These babies, whom Carmen Landau calls 'not a thinking being,' are unique and precious human persons. They feel, they dream, they grow...and when an abortionist tries to kill them with a needle or with forceps, they react. They fight for their lives, just as any of us would."

Go here to watch the video, but be forewarned that it is graphic.
