Planned Barrenhood happy to perform sex-selective abortions – UPDATED! May 30, 2012

Posted by Tantumblogo in Abortion, Basics, contraception, disaster, General Catholic, horror, scandals, sickness, Society.

I guess this broke yesterday, but I was behind all day.  Planned Barrenhood caught, yet again, being what they are – agents of the culture of death, willing to do anything, no matter how immoral, to make a buck.

The first video was apparently shot in Austin.  But Planned Barrenhood claims to have found similar Planned Barrenhood facilities in other states willing to kill babies simply because they are the wrong sex.  This puts to the lie, for the umpteenth time, Planned Barrenhood’s claims to be all about “helping” women and families.

Live Action says Planned Parenthood and other U.S. abortion providers are willing to assist in the termination of baby girls for pregnant women who choose abortion because they want to have baby boys. And the pro-life abortion watchdog says its video series and a new website will expose it all.

“This was a multi-state, national investigation demonstrating that this is a widespread problem across our country,” Live Action president Lila Rose told The Daily Caller in an interview Monday.

“First of all, the statistics and studies indicate that we are adding to the growing problem across the world of sex-selective targeting of unborn girls for abortion. We are going to be demonstrating — starting with this video from Texas — that the abortion industry in the United States is aiding and abetting this horrific problem.”

The first in what Live Action says is a series of videotaped incidents exposing American abortion facilities’  willingness to assist in sex-selection abortions took place at a South Austin, Texas Planned Parenthood clinic. In the footage, a Planned Parenthood counselor appears to readily assist and advise a Live Action actor who said she was trying to obtain an abortion if her baby is female.

“In this video, what is astounding is that Rebecca, the Planned Parenthood counselor, starts arranging with the actor about how to get a late-term abortion,” Rose said. “To wait until her pregnancy is so developed that — and using Medicaid for this, using the state to pay for the ultrasound to determine the gender, and then to do a late term abortion if it was a little girl.”

I can’t tell you how  many times I’ve been told by people pursuing an abortion that paying for it is no problem, that Medicaid will cover it. 

How many stings will Planned Barrenhood have to undergo before it is completely defunded?  How many before it loses all credibility among those who are not rabid pro-aborts dedicated to the cause of choosing to destroy human life?  Planned Parenthood has been caught arranging race-selective abortions, being willing to perform abortions on underage girls without parental consent, being willing to cover up for sex abuse of children by discreetly destroying the resulting pregnancies, aiding and abetting prostitution and sexual slavery by not reporting potential abuse, overcharging the government for ostensible Medicaid services…..and that’s just what I can remember off the top of my  head!

This is an utterly immoral, out of control, evil institution.  You can’t perform acts of barbarity day in and day out, or even advocate for the same, without hideous damage to your soul. In reality, these folks are slaves of satan.  As such, there should really be no surprise at all when we find scandal after horrific scandal with this crowd – those who are consumed with evil will do evil things.  And, as always, they will call it good.

It is a damning indictment of our nation that we do not have the moral outrage to have this institution not only de-funded, but completely shut down and many of its officers facing criminal investigations.  It is truly the progeny of its demented, depraved founder.

UPDATE: A quick update.  Even though Planned Barrenhood conveniently fired the staffer for having the temerity to follow their policy and encourage a sex-selective abortion, Planned Barrenhood’s own press releases in response to the Live Action sting claims they are fine with performing sex selective abortions, or abortions for any reasons, so long as they can kill babies and make money at it:

This spokeswoman for Planned Parenthood Federation of America also told The Huffington Post that the organization condemns seeking abortions on the basis of gender, but its policy is to provide “high quality, confidential, nonjudgmental care to all who come into” its health centers. That means that no Planned Parenthood clinic will deny a woman an abortion based on her reasons for wanting one, except in those states that explicitly prohibit sex-selective abortions (Arizona, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania and Illinois).

In this matter, Planned Barrenhood is hoist on its own petard.  They can’t, ideologically, oppose sex-selection abortions, because they have to claim that ALL abortions are good and wonderful and empowering.  But at the same time, they have to appease their feminist supporters by claiming to be opposed to sex-selection.  What a pathetic group.

Thanks for this post. You are spot on. To me, the most interesting thing about the Live Action video showing PP counsel a woman about a sex-selection abortion is not that fact (which should surprise no one), but the fact that the woman was also counseled to go on Medicaid to get the sono paid for to determine the sex and then *come back to PP to have the abortion done.* Even if Medicaid wouldn’t pay for that abortion, she could still use Medicaid for other services leading up to it – like the sono. Why does this interest me? Because major statewide pro-life lobbying groups which were proponents of the Women’s Health Program in Texas, a special “carve out” Medicaid program for women who would not normally qualify, which mostly provides contraceptives (including abortifacient/carcinogenic contraceptives like the Pill, etc.) claimed that the program was a good program so long as PP wasn’t the one distributing the contraceptives. (You covered this issue, and I thank you.) One group in particular argued repeatedly that women would then not go to or be “funneled to” PP for abortions if other providers handed out the contraceptives. I never bought that. It defies logic and common sense. *Now we have proof of what I’ve been saying.*

Live Action’s expose blew these silly arguments right out of the water. Women who are so inclined to have an abortion when their contraception fails – and it eventually will – have the wherewithal to drive to an abortion provider even if that person is different than the one that gave them the contraception. Live Action has shown us this. Just as there is no justification for support of PP, there is no justification for support of WHP. It doesn’t matter if PP is the provider or not. When you hand out contraception, you are encouraging behavior that will lead to abortions if the baby survives the abortifacient possibility of the contraceptive early on. Normally pro-lifers understand this. When it came to WHP, they seemed to forget all about it. Politics (Perry loves WHP and we must scratch his back so he’ll scratch ours) and a single-minded approach focusing only on PP as the only anti-life org/issue out there – resulted in taking a position that undermines the entire movement – in reality and morally. I can only hope they’ll now put 2 and 2 together, get 4, and rethink support of WHP and any similar program. Current events continue to provide proof that contraception and abortion are inextricably linked and you cannot support either, lest you get results like these. Thanks for your continued blogging on these life and death issues. We pray that our nation will reverse course.
