This Woman Faked Cancer to Get a Taxpayer Funded Late-Term Abortion

Having a late-term abortion is horrific enough, but that wasn’t good enough for this woman. In addition to wanting to kill her unborn baby, she also faked cancer in order to get taxpayers to pay for her late-term abortion.

A 29-year old woman was arrested last week for allegedly faking cancer to con the state of Arizona into using taxpayer money to pay for her late-term abortion.

According to KNXV, court documents say Chalice Renee Zeitner made up a story about having cancer in order to qualify for an abortion while on Arizona’s Medicaid insurance, and forged a doctor’s note to support her claim.

A doctor performed the abortion in 2010 when Zeitner was 22-weeks pregnant.

Arizona’s Medicaid will only pay for an abortion in cases of rape or incest or “medical necessity,” which include cases where the pregnancy causes or worsens a serious health risk to the mother, according to KNXV.

Zeitner’s aborted child was born alive. “The baby lived for approximately 20 minutes and received no life-saving measure by hospital staff,” according to documents.

Court documents say, “Zeitner claimed she had stage IV sarcoma in her abdomen and lower spine, had received chemotherapy and radiation treatments and was scheduled to receive a life-saving surgery in Boston.”

It was another pregnancy that led to the discovery of Zeitner’s alleged fraud.

Prosecutors claim Zeitner returned to the same doctor who performed the abortion to deliver a full-term child. During that birth, the doctor discovered no evidence of cancer.

That led to a check with the Boston doctor, which revealed that “he did not know Zeitner and had never treated her,” so the cancer letter from him was a fraud, prosecutors claim.

She’s now facing multiple charges, and hopefully, she’ll be put away where she belongs. But still — what kind of evil must lurk inside this woman for her to not only want to have a grisly and violent late-term abortion, but for her to also fake cancer in the process?
