EXPOSED: Abortionist drugged women with Xanax, forced them to strip naked before discussing baby murder procedure
By Ethan Huff // Jul 08, 2022

Live Action has released shocking new undercover footage showing an abortion doctor by the name of Dr. Cesare Santangelo abusing his female patients before proceeding to chop up their unborn babies.


The abortion surgeon, who works at the Washington Surgi-Clinic, advertises on his website that he performs abortions up to 31 weeks and six days. This is well into the third trimester of pregnancy.

Captured back in January, the footage shows Santangelo telling the undercover Live Action investigator, who posed as a pregnant patient needing an abortion, to take a Xanax and remove her pants before speaking to him about the procedure.

Before that, the investigator was told by a nurse that the Washington Surgi-Clinic performs "a lot" of abortions past 28 weeks that are not for medical emergencies. Washington, D.C., which is not a state, allows abortions at any stage of pregnancy, including late-stage and during the third trimester.

It is not, however, legal to conduct partial-birth abortions in D.C., though the procedure appears to be taking place at the Washington Surgi-Clinic.

For exposé purposes, the investigator posed as being late into her third trimester of pregnancy, to which the nurse informed her that there was a possibility she could go into premature labor before even getting to the abortion table.

"The patient was merely told to call the facility and they'll tell her what to do next," reports Town Hall. "After signing forms confirming they've had such a discussion, she's told that the doctor 'could come and help you take care of it.'"

According to Lila Rose, the founder of Live Action, attempting to get an abortion in the third trimester is more likely to result in a live birth rather than the baby's death.

Live Action investigator files ethics complaint against Washington Surgi-Clinic for trying to force mind-altering drug on her

After signing all the forms and speaking with the nurse at length, the investigator was then told that she had to take an antibiotic, pain medication, and a Xanax before being allowed to speak to Santangelo.

When she asked if she could take the drugs after speaking to Santangelo, the investigator was told by the nurse that, "uh, well, unfortunately they need to be in your system in order for the doctor to do the procedure."

The investigator then asked if the Xanax would affect her "clarity of thinking" during the conversation with the doctor, to which the nurse responded with, "it shouldn't."

"The drug can affect memory, though, and, as the nurse acknowledges, make one sleepy," writes Rebecca Downs for Town Hall. "The nurse doubles down on how the patient has to take the Xanax first, despite the patient making clear she is not comfortable doing so."

"It's at that point that the patient leaves."

Since conducting her investigation, the investigator filed an ethics complaint against the Washington Surgi-Clinic for attempting to force her to take a mind-altering drug before being allowed to see the doctor and receive an abortion.

That complaint specifies that acute administration of Xanax "risks 'cognitive impairment,' which includes 'poor attention and anterograde amnesia' as manifested by 'difficulties learning new material.'"

It goes on to state that "administering Xanax prior to a full medical consultation appears to be a negligent, if not reckless, practice of medicine. It also appears highly unlikely that introducing benzodiazepines before said consultation is a prevailing standard of acceptable medical practice."

The investigator proceeded to ask that a full investigation be conducted into the Washington Surgi-Clinic and into Santangelo specifically to determine "whether the practice of requiring use of benzodiazepines prior to medical consultation warrants the imposition of sanctions or disciplinary action here."

The Washington Surgi-Clinic should be shut down immediately

It should further be noted that the Live Action investigator was told to take extra-high doses of Xanax well beyond what is normally prescribed. The amount the investigator was told to take could have caused her to suffer memory loss or black out completely.

"Xanax pills come in different colors based on dosage, and the nurse tells the patient 'the two blue ones are the Xanax,'" reports explain.

"Blue Xanax are typically 1 mg each, except for the blue Xanax bars, which are 2 mg each. The recommended starting dosage of Xanax is 0.25 mg to 0.5 mg administered three times daily."

The Google Reviews section for the Washington Surgi-Clinic includes one particularly disturbing account of a partial-birth abortion gone wrong that almost killed the patient. And it involved "sleeping pills" that she was told to take after the first abortion attempt failed, prompting her to change her mind about getting the abortion at all.

It turns out that the drugs caused her to wake up in a pool of blood, followed by the baby being delivered by immediately being "rushed out of the room" by a "Hispanic lady" who disposed of the live-born child.

"It's been months and all I feel is regret and I'm definitely traumatized," the review states, adding tragically that she never even got to "get a glance at him," referring to the baby, before he was taken away and trashed.
