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.
Michigan Rep. John Conyers [pictured], the top Democrat on the House Judiciary Committee, said the bill “tramples (on) the rights of women under the guise of nondiscrimination, while doing absolutely nothing to provide women with needed resources for their babies, female and male.” Citing opposition to the bill from groups such as the American Congress [...]
Until now pro-abortion groups have opposed state and federal bans against sex selective abortions by simply denying they exist, for instance Jezebel only six days ago:
[I]n the U.S., there’s no evidence or noteworthy numbers to indicate that women are having abortions based on the sex of the infant….
Apparently, abortion industry leaders have decided they can no longer carry on the ruse. Public opinion is so persuaded against sex-selective abortion, the other side must have decided they have to enter the conversation in order to remain players and try to influence the outcome.
The first to fall was Guttmacher Institute in its Spring 2012 Policy Review, published sometime after May 1:
Pro-Planned Parenthood website forgets cardinal rule in politics: Never ask a question you don’t know the answer to
Yesterday the pro-abortion website Jezebel posted a hit piece against an investigative video released by the pro-life group Live Action that showed a Planned Parenthood employee helping facilitate what she thought was a sex-selective abortion.
Jezebel’s (lame) hit was to be expected. But the headline must have slipped by editors…
“Rascals”? Lol. But the bigger faux pas was asking whether Live Action could prove Planned Parenthood facilitates sex selective abortions. We now know that answer is yes. Oops.
Jezebel editors quickly realized the strategic sin and unpublished the post, although not before one of Live Action’s astute bloggers captured it. Here was Jezebel’s liberally correct redo…
Last night Live Action’s Lila Rose appeared on The O’Reilly Factor to discuss her group’s new video investigation into sex selective abortions. Watch the latest video at video.foxnews.com After viewing a cut from Live Action’s first exposé, which showed an Austin, Texas, Planned Parenthood employee helping facilitate what she thought was a sex-selective [...]
UPDATE 2p: Planned Parenthood has issued a statement disclaiming any culpability. It states the now terminated employee was “entry-level” and “did not follow our protocol.” So what exactly is the protocol of an organization that claims “[g]ender bias is contrary to everything our organization works for,” yet not wanting (lucrative) sex-selective abortions “curtail[ed]” in any way?
1:26p: See previous post here.
According to the Huffington Post, Planned Parenthood says it fired the staffer involved in Live Action’s new video investigation into sex selective abortions almost immediately after LA conducted its sting.
A Live Action source told me today the sting at that Austin, Texas, Planned Parenthood was conducted April 11, so the employee was fired April 14, 6-1/2 weeks ago:
In a surprise move, House Republicans announced this past Friday they would call for a vote on a federal ban against sex-selective abortion, aka the Prenatal Nondiscrimination Act, H.R. 3541*, tomorrow, May 30.
PRENDA will be considered under “suspension of the rules,” meaning no amendments can be added. The bill must be voted on as is, straight up or down, and a two-thirds majority will be needed to pass it.
UPDATE 7:42a: Sign the new petition at ProtectOurGirls.Com, which calls for an immediate ban on the horrific practice of sex-selective abortions in the U.S.
6:45a: Pro-life group Live Action has just gone public with the first video from its latest undercover investigation: sex-selective abortions.
This first sting was conducted at a Planned Parenthood in Texas.
The Daily Caller broke the story a few minutes ago:
