The group Live Action continues to reveal what really goes on inside
Planned Parenthood's clinics. In a video released today, a counselor at a
clinic in Austin, Texas is shown casually discussing a sex-selection
abortion of an otherwise healthy baby. This is what a real war on women
looks like, but don't expect Sandra Fluke or Debbie Wasserman-Schultz to
The video is chilling for the calm, matter of fact way in which the
Planned Parenthood counselor discusses aborting the baby if it turns out
to be a girl. After confirming that the patient is pregnant she says:
PP Staff: I see that you say that you want to terminate if it’s a girl, so are you
just wanting to continue the pregnancy in the meantime, or what?
When the woman asks if it will be a problem getting a sex-selection
abortion, the Planned Parenthood counselor seems more worried about the
fact that it will be a relatively late term abortion, having explained
previously that an ultrasound can't usually detect the sex of the baby
until 5 months (18 weeks):
Woman: And, um, so I feel like worried that–you know, I mean, do
you know a doctor who could–do you think I should go and just ask for an
ultrasound and just not tell him that I’m gonna terminate if it’s a
girl, or–I just feel like there’s been some judgment for my–
Staff: Um, I mean, to be honest with you, um, I would probably think so,
just because we’ve had even clinicians, I mean, regular doctors that
actually have even told women, you know, you can’t go and terminate
after you’re 16 weeks. You know? Which is not true, but, you know,
they–a lot of doctors, you know–they’ll place judgment because of the
fact that the brain is already developed, every–a lot, pretty much
everything’s already developed.
Sex-selection abortion is common in other parts of the world. In
the government's one-child policy means families, especially rural
farmers, feel pressure to have boys. As a result of aborting or simply
abandoning newborn girls, China has developed a statistically
significant sex-ratio imbalance. Official estimates suggest there may be
30 million more boys under the age of 20 than girls.
