BREAKING: New undercover video reveals Planned Parenthood flagship New York clinic facilitating sex-selection abortion

Today pro-life group Live Action released a new undercover video showing Planned Parenthood’s flagship Margaret Sanger Center late-term abortion clinic on Manhattan Island in New York City help a pregnant mother determine if her baby was female so she could have a sex-selection abortion.

The video is second in a new series titled “Gendercide: Sex-Selection in America,” exposing the practice of sex-selective abortion in the United States and how Planned Parenthood and the rest of the abortion industry facilitate the selective elimination of preborn baby girls.

Since Live Action released its first video on Tuesday, Planned Parenthood has maintained to the press, “Gender bias is contrary to everything our organization works for daily in communities across the country.”

Planned Parenthood has a funny way of doing that. In the new video, Planned Parenthood social worker Randi Coun advises an LA actor posing as a pregnant mother of various tests to determine the gender of her baby in the late first or early second trimester.

“So if you were to have what’s called a CVS test, which is, do you know what that is?” Coun asks, referring to the genetic Chorionic Villus Sampling test. “It’s done between 11 and 13 weeks, so it is a test that you could do now.”

CVS tests have a risk of miscarriage of about 1 in 100, which Coun did not mention, and are typically done to test for genetic disorders.

Incredibly, Coun also reassures the woman late-term abortions are as safe as early, which is contrary to known facts about late-term abortions as well as Planned Parenthood’s own acknowledgement that “[t]he risks increase the longer you are pregnant,” certainly at 6 months.

But “an abortion at any stage up to 24 weeks is considered a safe procedure,” Coun claims. “It’s not that it’s unsafe, or that there’s a lot more risk involved, it’s just there’s more steps involved and it’s just a little more complicated.”

Planned Parenthood’s Margaret Sanger Center commits abortions up to 24 weeks of pregnancy and is the organization’s national headquarters. Photo, left, is of a preemie born at 24 weeks.

“I can tell you that here at Planned Parenthood we believe that it’s not up to us to decide what is a good or a bad reason for somebody to decide to terminate a pregnancy,” Coun adds concerning the woman’s request for a sex-selective abortion. Planned Parenthood CEO Cecile Richards yesterday opposed a ban on sex-selective abortions on the grounds that it would “limit [a woman’s] choices as she makes personal medical decisions,” which sure sounds to me like endorsement of sex-selective abortions.

  1. Sick & wrong.

    Can we all just be really honest here?

    Time and time again Live Action releases videos of PPs all over the nation aiding in statuatory rape, sex trafficking, on and on..

    WHY are they still getting our tax dollars??


  2. “sex of the pregnancy?” I thought I gave birth to a boy and girl not a pregnancy.


  3. Amanda,
    You beat me to it!  The cognitive dissonance and double-speak is enough to make anyone’s head hurt; I really do wonder how they can say such blatant, easily-recognisable nonsense and not stop themselves in mid-sentence, shake their heads, and ask, “What am I saying??”


  4. Their own HQ, named after the great eugenicist herself… Hanging the same millstone around their necks they used to crush the lives of the unborn.


  5. Oh my.  Can so many “trained professionals” at PP NOT be following their protocol??!!

    Keep em coming LIVE ACTION!!! :) 


  6. But hey, doing sex-selective abortions is not a general practice of Planned Parenthood, these are isolated incidents, and it’s contrary to their protocols.  It’s totally unfair to condemn all of PP for a few bad apples.
    And if you believe all that, then we should go to Brooklyn, because they’ve got this bridge for sale that you’re gonna love. ;)


  7. A wonderful time to be pro-life!  I have such faith in our young people.

    Of course, this situation is horribly sad. But, for decades has gone on unreported. Thanks to Lila and Live Action.


  8. Yeah, I noticed she scrupulously avoids saying “the sex of the baby.”

    So, I wonder how many people are ultimately going to get the axe for this?  It doesn’t really matter, they’re all expendable to save face, right?   


  9. National Right to Life just noted that President Obama now officially opposes PRENDA, as if that’s a surprise to anyone here; if a born-alive baby isn’t a human being, then who is?


  10. One only has to look in particular neighborhoods in America to understand that sex-selection abortion has been with us for quite some time – and I’m not referring to immigrant families. There’s way too many “perfect” families – using precisely the scenario LA used here.

    Sadly for those who think it couldn’t get worse – here’s a scenario that PPA would also support – elimination of males, so the females could be raised for prostitution or sex slavery sales.

    My daughter raised an interesting side-effect of sex-selection abortion in particular regions – that  sex-slave trafficking and trading would greatly increase to meet the supply shortage of women.

    There are no stops when moving forward into the depths of depravity.


  11. I think she is talking to her president right now.  And trying not to shriek.  You know that yelling whisper thing through clenched teeth?  Yeah.  She’s doing that.



  12. Whatever she’s doing, I imagine that every time she says the name “Lila Rose,” it sounds like a curse.  Which Lila can wear as a badge of honor.


  13. Liberals have a new card in their debate deck.

    The EDIT card.

    When an undercover video exposes an ugly truth, play the Edit card, as in “anti-choice extremists release a highly EDITed video …”


  14. That drives me nuts, Cranky!  Live Action always makes the full un-edited video available..  Per the Live Action website, available here 

    but of course, they release a shorter version via youtube and  to the media.

    This is not a unique situation – every magazine article that interviews a subject is edited.  Every non-live television interview is edited.  Every published essay is edited.  Every press release is edited.

    The unedited video is always available.  Planned Parenthood is pathetic.  Conservatives learned their lesson with the Breitbart Sherrod video.   


  15. The “Women Count” sign on the door (1:02 – 1:03) has to be the most ironic part.


  16. The interesting quandry that PP finds themselves in would be amusing if it weren’t so sickening.


  17. The lady who works for Planned Parenthood seems like she is giving a reasonable consultation. Good for her!


  18. You must have missed the part where she agreed to kill a baby girl solely because she’s a girl.  Try watching it again.


  19. This one woman cannot be made into the sole spokesperson for a whole organization because she’s giving abhorrent advice for an abhorrent act. And just because one pro-choice supporter calls selective abortion reasonable does not mean every pro-choice supporter believes the same thing.Generalizing makes good people with good intentions look bad.
