‘All-trimester’ abortion business in Maryland sells pet calendars to raise funds

A new abortion facility in Maryland that takes the lives of preborn humans through all nine months of pregnancy is attempting to raise more funds by selling cute, cuddly calendars featuring… pets.

Partners in Abortion Care officially opened in the fall of 2022, after announcing its plans in September. It is owned by Morgan Nuzzo and Diane Horvath, who used crowdfunding to raise the money needed to open the facility. Katie Yoder has since reported that the facility is open, just minutes away from the University of Maryland.

“Partners in Abortion Care is the only women-owned and operated abortion clinic providing abortions in all trimesters,” their website says. “We’re committed to helping people coming from areas where abortion rights have been restricted.”

Horvath has a less-than-stellar history, which includes a malpractice suit after seriously injuring a woman in a dilation and evacuation (D&E). The patient’s uterus was perforated, while her right ovary and fallopian tube were destroyed. The damage was so extensive that she had to undergo corrective surgery to repair the lacerations and stop the bleeding; even her appendix had to be removed. Doctors also discovered that the abortion had also not been completed, leaving parts of the baby inside the woman’s uterus.

She additionally encouraged women to undergo repeat abortions, and to use it as birth control… which is not surprising, considering how lucrative late-term abortions are.

Yet apparently, the facility still needs more money and is selling a pet calendar — an odd (or perhaps not so odd) inclusion on its website.

Right now, however, it seems business is good. Horvath told the Wall Street Journal that the business is having to turn people away.

“You know, we’re not monsters,” she previously told NPR, making an oft-repeated (and false) claim that women need late-term abortions almost solely due to medical reasons. “We’re trying to help people. We’re really, really, really trying to help people who are in absolutely unimaginable situations.”

However, a 1988 Guttmacher study found that just two percent (2%) of women who had abortions did so because of a health problem with the baby. More than 20 years later, a 2013 study (also published by the pro-abortion Guttmacher Institute) said, “[D]ata suggest that most women seeking later terminations are not doing so for reasons of fetal anomaly or life endangerment.”

Pro-abortion researcher Diana Greene Foster stated, according to a report from the Congressional Research Service, that abortions for fetal abnormalities “make up a small minority of later abortion.” And a 2010 paper from Julia Steinberg, of the pro-abortion Bixby Center for Global Reproductive Health, said, “Research suggests that the overwhelming majority of women having later abortions do so for reasons other than fetal anomaly (Drey et al., 2006; Finer et al., 2005, 2006; Foster et al., 2008).”

Abortion is a procedure that always results in at least one human’s death. Hiding abortion behind cute pictures of adorable pets cannot mask that reality.

Did you know that as little as $10 a month is enough to reach more than 3,000 people with the truth about abortion that no one else is telling them? Click here to start saving lives 365 days a year.
