The latest investigative video from the anti-abortion group Live Action unveiled Thursday shows an Albuquerque, New Mexico abortion doctor comparing the injection used to kill a fetus to a flu shot.

The shocking video provided to Secrets features recordings from Dr. Carmen Landau, of Southwest Women's Options in Albuquerque, New Mexico, and a counselor employed at the same facility.

In the video, the fifth in a series meant to draw attention to the disturbing procedures at abortion clinics highlighted by the recent Philadelphia murder trial of Dr. Kermit Gosnell, Landau tells the investigator acting at a women seeking an abortion that the injection that will kill her baby is "like any shot, you know, like a flu shot, or a vaccine, really." It comes as 6:20 in the video.

She adds, "it's not like you and I [sic] where when we get a flu shot, we're kind of, 'Ugh!' - not - that - that - that experience of anxiety and suffering is not - it [the baby]'s not capable of."

The counselor in the video also dismisses the pain of the fetus in an abortion, saying, "I feel that it's, um, necessary for the procedure to happen and, ultimately, um, safest, and kind of the most, kinda, humane way to do it, you know?"

Lila Rose, president of Live Action, said, "Our investigation has exposed the disturbing willingness of abortionists to engage in illegal and inhuman acts including misleading pregnant women, pushing them into abortion, and even infanticide. This is horrible, but Americans should know just as well the horrifying practices that are still legal, that we allow to happen every day."

The first half of Live Action's latest video details abortionists' estimation of the humanity of the unborn child. Mercer assures the investigator that her 24-week baby "doesn't even look like a baby yet."

Overall, the new video, "Inhuman: Undercover in America's Abortion Industry," is a compilation of interviews with abortion doctors asked about when a fetus is considered a child and how abortions work.
