The War on Baby Girls
Lila Rose of Live Action Nails Planned Parenthood Yet Again
This is all too typical of Planned Parenthood. From the Live Action website:
And from their press release:
Sex-Selective Abortion Thrives in America, Courtesy Planned Parenthood
Chilling Undercover Video Sheds Light on Growing Trend

AUSTIN, May 29 - Today, Live Action released a new undercover video showing a Planned Parenthood abortion clinic in Austin, TX encouraging a woman to obtain a late-term abortion because she was purportedly carrying a girl and wanted to have a boy. The video is first 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 baby girls in the womb.
"I see that you're saying that you want to terminate if it's a girl, so are you just wanting to continue the pregnancy in the meantime?" a counselor named "Rebecca" offers the woman, who is purportedly still in her first trimester and cannot be certain about the gender. "The abortion covers you up until 23 weeks," explains Rebecca, "and usually at 5 months is usually (sic) when they detect, you know, whether or not it's a boy or a girl." Doctors agree that the later in term a doctor performs an abortion, the greater the risk of complications.

Via one of my favorite blogs, Sister Toldjah, here are excerpts from two press releases compiled by Steven Ertelt of Life News:
"Six weeks ago a former staff member serving in an entry-level position did not follow our protocol for providing information and guidance when presented with a highly unusual patient scenario. Planned Parenthood insists on the highest quality patient care, and if we ever become aware of a staff member not meeting these high standards, we take swift action. Within three days of this patient interaction, the staff member's employment was ended and all staff members at this affiliate were immediately scheduled for retraining in managing unusual patient encounters. Today opponents of Planned Parenthood are promoting an edited video of that hoax patient encounter."
"Recently, opponents of Planned Parenthood conducted hoax patient visits with hidden video cameras and are now using edited videotapes to promote false claims about our organization and patient services. In highly unusual and scripted scenarios, hoax patients sought services related to sex selection."
Planned Parenthood condemns gender bias but refuses to condemn sex-selection abortions or say their centers will deny them.
"Gender bias is contrary to everything our organization works for daily in communities across the country. Planned Parenthood opposes racism and sexism in all forms, and we work to advance equity and human rights in the delivery of health care. Planned Parenthood condemns sex selection motivated by gender bias, and urges leaders to challenge the underlying conditions that lead to these beliefs and practices, including addressing the social, legal, economic, and political conditions that promote gender bias and lead some to value one gender over the other."
"The world's leading women's health and rights organizations, including the World Health Organization, do not believe that curtailing access to abortion services is a legitimate means of addressing sex selection, and have made clear that gender bias can only be resolved by addressing the underlying conditions that lead to it. And we agree. We support efforts that ensure girls and women have access to economic opportunity, including fair wages, basic health care, political participation, education, and a life free of violence and discrimination. Planned Parenthood works to ensure women and their families have access to high-quality nonjudgmental health services free of coercion, supported by information and counseling."
Mr. Ertelt comments: "In other words, sex-selection abortions are fine as long as other efforts are undertaken to try to stamp out gender bias." Yup, sounds about right.
This is nothing new for Planned Parenthood. Search through the Live Action website, or in the "Social Issues" category of this blog, and you'll find many undercover operations Rose's organization have done to expose Planned Parenthood.
Previous investigations by Live Action covered her at The Redhunter:

Lila Rose - Exposing Planned Parenthood and the Culture of Abortion
Planned Parenthood's excuses wear thin. We know who and what they are; an organization that purports to care about "women's health" yet is dedicated to performing as many abortions as possible.
Imagine if an undercover operation revealed that gun stores routinely conspired with customers to circumvent identification and background check laws? How fast do you think before President Obama and Senator Chuck Schumer introduced draconian gun-control legislation?
So where is CNN, ABC, NBC, CBS, PBS, or even Fox News? Why is it that it takes a Lila Rose, James O'Keefe, or Andrew Breitbart to do what they should be doing? Whether it's Planned Parenthood, ACORN, or voter fraud, if it wasn't for enterprising young conservative journalists, the sacred cows of the left are untouched.
Lila Rose is one of the bravest young women in America. Abortion is the crown jewels of modern liberalism, "thou that shalt not be touched." By continually exposing them she is earning powerful enemies. She is unfazed, and she and her compatriots continue their work. A hero for our time

Tom: Want Nutbag to care about abortion? Find a way to identify the gene that makes babies into crazy, willfully ignorant liberals and suggest aborting them.

Huh? At least make sense some of the time, nutjob.

How does a woman's choice to have an abortion affect your rights or ability to live YOUR life the way you choose to? It doesn't, which is why you should mind your own business, and stay out of other people's private lives. What don't you understand about that?

My my, what anger. What's interesting is that nowhere in the post do I say that I am pro-life. And nowhere in your comment do you address what Planned Parenthood was caught doing. Once again, you post without reading.
Posted by: The Redhunter at May 31, 2012 8:33 PM
Please...I don't need to read any more of what you post to know exactly where you stand on every issue. You're just another predictable, right-wing, neo-con hack who thinks his religious and moral viewpoints should be imposed on the rest of us, by government force when necessary. Which means you cannot honestly call yourself a conservative.
Posted by: RW Nutbag at May 31, 2012 8:45 PM
lol, what a weak comment. You are so very afraid to confront the subject of the post, which is that Planned Parenthood was caught agreeing that it is acceptable to abort a baby because she is a girl.
All you do is spout stock phrases and leftist cliches. You are a caricature of a liberal, a cartoon figure. This is like arguing with a child.

"This is like arguing with a child."
I agree. It reminds me of those political arguments I had around the dinner table with some younger cousins who were filled up with liberal brainwashing from whatever failed schools they were subjected to and so sure of themselves. Since everyone in their peer group embraced the same kinds of prejudice and willful ignorance no one ever challenged their thinking before.
All they could do when presented with an opposing viewpoint was repeat what they had said as if that made it true or change the subject or fling around the insults.
