On April 11, 2012, an employee at a Planned Parenthood abortion clinic in Austin, TX encouraged a woman to obtain a late-term abortion because she was purportedly carrying a girl and wanted to have a boy. View the youtube here
On June 13, 2012, Live Action released new undercover footage today showing two Planned Parenthood clinics, in Maui and Honolulu, advising a woman how best to procure a sex-selective abortion of her baby girl because she wants a boy instead. View the youtube here
Planned Parenthood is often depicted by the media and some pro-abortion legislators as an organization that cares about women and girls, especially their "health." Nothing could be further from the truth. Perpetuating this myth is both irresponsible and dishonest. These latest videos, along with the ones previously released in February of 2011 showing PP staff aiding and abetting the sex traffickers of minor girls, and numerous others that have been released in recent years, proves that Planned Parenthood does not care for, nor represent the best interests of, women and girls. As grandmothers, mothers, wives, daughters, sisters, and grandaughters, we believe Planned Parenthood's conduct toward women and girls is disgusting, discriminatory and indefensible. We call on the media and pro-abortion legislators to stop perpetuating the falsehood that Planned Parenthood cares about women and girls and their "health." It's time to stop giving aid and comfort to an organization that aids and abets sexual predators of minor girls and encourages the sex selection abortions of female babies. It's time to defund Planned Parenthood!
