Hawaii Planned Parenthoods promote serial, government-funded sex-selection abortions

Today Live Action released its fourth video investigating sex-selection abortion at nationwide Planned Parenthood and National Abortion Federation clinics.

This sting focused on two Planned Parenthoods in Hawaii, and just as with the others, staff condoned sex-selection abortions.

At the Maui Planned Parenthood, counselor Leslie Watson told the investigator there should be no judgement but rather, accommodation, for sex-selection abortions: “This is your reason and this is your situation. So they should be accommodating because this can help you determine and it’s nobody’s business and nobody’s reason but yours.”

In Honolulu, Planned Parenthood counselor Rogue told the investigator serial abortions of girl babies are okay as long as the abortions are spaced properly.

Rogue added that a mother can get her sex-selection abortion completely funded via the state Medicaid-funded Quest Hawai’i program.

    Yeah, LiveAction stings are sooooo boring.  Who cares if they almost always result in Planned Parenthood firing someone, then immediately thereafter inexplicably claiming that the video is “edited” (as if ALL video isn’t edited) and shown out of context. Do they even understand what little sense that makes?   It would seem that Planned Parenthood has more bad apples than a bushel full of month old Red Delicious.  Too bad it’s not newsworthy OH LOOK A CATHOLIC DID SOMETHING BAD PAGE ONE NEWS!!!!

    Megan, and yet, Planned Parenthood fired them for their non-judgmental unbiased care.  I guess Planned Parenthood is opposed to non-judgmental unbiased care.  And interesting you should mention child rape, since numerous PP workers have been caught on tape covering trying to cover up child rape so that they can sell abortions to raped children.

    I always give credit where its due, and coming up with sex selection as unbiased and non judgmental takes the prize.

    How interesting that PP is falling all over themselves to “explain” your notion of “nonjudgmental” and “unbiased” care completely violates their supposed policies and standards. Policies and standards their own employees are somehow completely oblivious to.

    I’ll put the same question to you that I did to joan. As a woman, do you not have a problem with sexism at its most vile and blatant?

    When any of us start employment anywhere, are we not told the rules and standards to which we must adhere if we want to keep our jobs?

    I’m told violation of patient confidentiality in any shape or form is immediate termination.
    For ethical reasons and to maintain my employment, I treat the confidential information of others as I want my own treated. My co workers also know the rules and do the same. Those who have violated these rules, whether medical personnel or housekeepers, have been fired. Period.

    So I find it odd that PP has such supposedly strict ethical standards yet employees are either completely clueless or totally indifferent to them.  You have to wonder about “strict standards” when employees are found time and again violating them. You also have to wonder about the quality of employees that are being hired when they are either clueless of or indifferent to employer regulations.

    When told the consequences of violating patient confidentiality, my employer leaves no doubt that standards will be strictly adhered to. Apparently this is not the case with PP.

    Abortion motives: they want us to ignore them.  But, I remember well that abortion was sold to the American people by the motives:  Women must be allowed to abort or else they, being desperate and downtrodden, will hurt themselves or go to back alleys.  THAT’s how it was sold to us, Joan and Megan.  cc, you remember because you “were there” as you said. 
    Sex selective abortion in America: if we don’t let women do it, will they hurt themselves?  By the thousands?  I think not.  And I think “on demand without apology” is an abomination.  Lots of Americans agree with me.  Even self-identified pro-choice Americans agree with me.

    Planned Parenthood needs to go!  What will happen?  Slutty boys and girls will have to carry a purse full of condoms on them at all times?  Either that or they could choose to keep their clothes on in social situations and wait until marriage.  Those of us who grew up in the 50’s had to live that way.  We did not suffer because of it!!!  And guess what— STD’s were almost unheard of back then.  Remember it is the sexual revolution that caused STD’s to skyrocket currently reducing the life span of those who choose the insane alternative lifestyles that are being promoted in this day and age.  The only thing, I know for sure is this, It is impossible to teach a sex addict anything.  They are too wrapped up in themselves to care about anyone but themselves and their next orgasm.  Get rid of Planned Parenthood and ROEvWade and watch where the chips fall.  The US social scenario cannot get any worse than it is now. The sexual revolution has destroyed at least half of USA families, especially responsible parenthood. We have the power to identify all fathers and but lack the will to do it and hold them accountable. How many manhater women or womenhater men could care less as long as surrogates and test tubes are available?  We live in a day and age where children are viewed as nothing unless a child is viewed as property to serve the pseudo parent.   It is time to hold people responsible for their behavior and rescue the future children from this current insanity.

    Hi ninek,

    Sex selection is what one would call an “unintended consequence”.  Never in a million years did feminists anticipate this. What some may view as some kind of panacea, the answer to their prayers, is often only the gods having a good laugh.

    One cannot envy the quandry feminists now find themselves in. Its like black Americans who give their blind devotion to the Democrat Party despite the Party’s long history of racist repression.
    People find their blind loyalty has gotten them in a quandry. Excuses are made. Oh, sex selection is “rare”. It only happens, you know, in those backward countries. The Democrat Party of today is “different”. It was “conservative” Democrats who were racist.

    I have my blind loyalty, don’t mess it up with facts.

    Yes, how interesting. How interesting that we live in a time when a band of publicity-hungry adolescents can back a major provider of women’s healthcare into a corner for failing to interrogate its clients about their motives for seeking care. How interesting that your answer to supposed instances of gender bias would be to undercut the rights of adult women.

    “Sex selective abortion in America: if we don’t let women do it, will they hurt themselves?”

    Oh, I’m very, very curious: how would you propose to ban the practice? Should a counselor who catches wind of a woman’s gender bias lock her in the closet for nine months? Do share. It’s always so interesting when antis attempt to sketch out the consequences of the policies they seek to enact.

    Well, Jamie, from the research I have seen sex selective abortions in America seem to be limited to certain ethnic minorities. The sex ratio is the worst among southeast Asian cultures  where daughters completely become part of the husband’s family when they marry. Demographers estimate that there are about 1000 missing girls every year in the Asian-American community. However, the sex ratio for white, black, and hispanic Americans continues to be within normal limits.

    This is a losing analogy. The only conceivable individual in “bondage” here is a woman carrying an unwanted pregnancy.

LieAction has “exposed” Planned Parenthood in the way that one would “expose” the McDonalds Corporation by revealing that a number of individual franchisees employ people who don’t wear hair nets or wash their hands after using the rest room.

    Honestly, it’s a bit rich for Megan, who views women as inherently flawed and subjugated and dehumanized by the ordinary and normal condition of pregnancy, to talk about “mendacious hijacking of the language of women’s rights.”  When you’ve got the whole “choice” side running around demonizing any pregnancy that wasn’t 100% expected as a life-ending calamity instead of the normal, ordinary, healthy event that it is, and painting all women who have unplanned pregnancies as weak-minded, easily led, and totally subordinate to an unborn child who threatens neither self, nor freedom, nor intelligence, nor anything else about their mother, I just have to laugh at them.  Because then, after doing all that, Megan will turn around and call herself a champion of women’s rights in order to defend sex-selective abortions.
     
    So, since we’re talking about misogynists who’ve hijacked the language of women’s rights, I can only suggest, Megan, that you take a good long look in the mirror.

    “That’s how a community WORKS.”

    Not when it comes to medicine, no it doesn’t. You have the right to bear as many children as you want, without question. Likewise, your neighbor should be able to get as many abortions as she wants, without question.
    “Or have they never met an abortion they didn’t love?”

    The hyperbole continues to shoot your argument in the foot. I can advocate for a woman’s right to get an abortion even if I don’t support her motives. For instance, I’ve seen some pretty selfish morons have children they were destined to screw up, but it was never my place–nor any physician’s–to prevent them from managing what took place inside their bodies.

    I’m sorry the PP employee treated her patient with rationality and a nonjudgmental attitude, instead of plying her with religious pamphlets, invoking the name of the Lord, forcibly shipping her off to a CPC, etc. That’s not how things work in the Big Girl world.

    “You are the ultimate misogynist.”

    Sure, if that’s what it means to be opposed to this “birth at all costs” extremism.
    By the way, did you know that India bans sex-selective abortions? How’s that working for them, eh?

    “When you’ve got the whole “choice” side running around demonizing any pregnancy that wasn’t 100% expected as a life-ending calamity instead of the normal, ordinary, healthy event that it is”

    Don’t conflate “unplanned” with “unwanted.” An unwanted pregnancy is never a healthy event, unless you’re willing to discount the woman’s mental health. But even so, stress can have a hugely negative impact on birth outcomes. And women who don’t want to be pregnant aren’t likely to take care of themselves as well as women who want to be.

    An unwanted pregnancy is never a healthy event, unless you’re willing to discount the woman’s mental health. But even so, stress can have a hugely negative impact on birth outcomes. And women who don’t want to be pregnant aren’t likely to take care of themselves as well as women who want to be.
     
    …Or, to put this another way, “Women are weak-minded, fragile things who can not do hard stuff!  How can anyone be so mean as to look at women as powerful people who aren’t being oppressed by their own biology working normally?!?”
     
    Women are not weak, pregnancy isn’t bad, and unplanned or unwanted events are not the end of the world, even if they happen to women.  I’ve said to others before, if your position that women, sans abortion, are being oppressed, were true, you would be validating all the misogyny of history to prop up your brand of “feminism.”  Abortion is an artificial intervention.  If women are less without it, then it is the natural state of women to be less.  In your ideology, every time someone had ever said women were the “weaker sex,” they would have been right.
     
    I’m so tired of fake feminists running around throwing misogyny in my face and calling it good.  It isn’t good.  It’s anti-feminist BS, and in the case of abortion, it’s anti-feminist BS that gets people killed, most of whom, globally, are girls.

    Wantedness.  It only takes 9 months to gestate a child, so I find it interesting that abortionistas like Megan are willing to snuff out an entire life based on their own personal emotions at the beginning of that life.  

    Motivations.  They are the wedge.  They are the common ground between pro-lifers and those very numerous pro-choicers who don’t agree with the following: sex selective abortion, late-term abortion, IVF embryo destruction, twin and triplet “reduction”, coerced abortion, and more.  

    You see, people like Megan, we don’t need YOUR agreement.  We can make abortion illegal again WITHOUT YOUR COOPERATION.   We can use judicial fiat, democratic vote, and social change.  Social change is awesome because people come around to valuing children without any kind of legal wrangling.  For example, ultrasound images on facebook are changing people’s perception of WHO the pre-born ARE.  

    Megan and our other frequent abortion advocates are quite convinced that if they only stick to their bumper sticker “abortion on demand without apology” that they will guarantee the legality of abortion for any reason at all.  The tide is turning against them, and most Americans find their bumper sticker to be shallow, brutal, and disgusting. 

    So really, Megan and all, keep it up.  Keep it up with a vengeance.  You make our job (of socially changing our culture to one where abortion is unthinkable) easier.  Make it easier for us, Megan.  Keep it up, and repeat your bumper sticker to yourself.

    By the way, did you know that India bans sex-selective abortions? How’s that working for them, eh?


    OMGZZZZ, did you know that in America, murder and rape are illegal?  Psssshhh!  How’s THAT working for the country, eh??
    Why should ANYTHING be illegal if people might do it anyway, by your brand of “logic”?

    We make laws in an attempt to protect the innocent, don’t we?

    Alice,
    Your views are a mirror image of mine. Everytime someone calls me a “misogynist,” I say exactly the same back to them that you just said. Brava. Love the pro-life feminism. :)

    I agree.  Having such attitudes toward one’s own children is very unhealthy. You don’t fix it by killing them though.

    Too bad abortion isn’t medicine.

    Megan, can we stop pretending that the woman is the only relevant party in an abortion decision, it’s just starting to look silly to pretend the one being killed doesn’t count for anything.
    While w’re at it, can we stop this false equivalency between having children and having an abortion? One is killing, the other is letting live so it makes sense for one to be restricted by the law and not the other.

    I am quite tickled that Joan’s trolling comment (see first post) has become the topic of this thread.

    Is anyone besides a handful of right-wing bloggers even paying attention to LiveAction “stings” anymore? Time for a new gimmick?

    We are accustomed to being ignored by the mainstream press.  Everything important gets ignored by the press these days.  (Obama’s low approval ratings are just not as important as Bush’s were in 2008. Why is that?)

    But Americans still love truth, and appreciate those who reveal it.  When Lila Rose is invited to testify before Congress, it won’t be like what happened after Sandra Fluke’s pseudo-testimony.

    Because they’re not as low.

    There won’t be a bunch of people calling her a whore and a grifter because they don’t like her politics? That’s good.

    No, she’ll probably just have a bunch of knitted genitalia sent to her.  Because that passive-aggressive abusive behavior is so much better than the blunt type.

    Lila will be able to recount actual events, on dates, at times, with facts.  Fluke just whined about wanting us to pay for her ELECTIVE birth control AND she drastically overestimated the cost of her birth control to the point of hyperbole.  

    If Lila does testify before Congress, you can bet the so-called feminists will be out in force, making fun of her good looks and calling the videos “hoaxes.”

    It would be amusing to see the courtroom sketches. Would Rose treat us to reenactments of she and her “colleagues” pretending to be Russian prostitutes? By the way, how’s Rose’s crusade against sex trafficking going?
