Not only does Planned Parenthood publicly oppose legislation that would prohibit sex-selection abortion, they are now on record encouraging and promoting this barbaric practice.
Live Action, which has exposed many of Planned Parenthood’s abuses around the country, has released a new video detailing the lengths that the abortion giant will go to in order to commit an abortion.
The video shows a woman seeking an abortion at a Planned Parenthood clinic, if her baby is a girl. Planned Parenthood’s staff were all too happy to help the woman find a way to use abortion to choose the sex of her child. In fact, Planned Parenthood even advised the woman how to get Medicaid to pay for the ultrasound to determine the baby’s sex, so that she could then have an abortion if the child was a girl.
Planned Parenthood actually went so far as to encourage her to keep the fact that she wanted to abort a girl, just because she didn’t want a girl, a secret because some doctors may “judge” her and refuse to work with her.
A study done in 1990 estimated that more than 100 million women are missing from the world because of the barbaric practice of sex-based abortion, today that number could be closer to 200 million.
The United States is far behind other nations in stopping this “gendercide.” According to congressional findings of the proposed bill to ban this practice in the U.S.:
Countries with longstanding experience with sex-selection abortion—such as the Republic of India, the United Kingdom, and the People’s Republic of China—have enacted restrictions on sex-selection, and have steadily continued to strengthen prohibitions and penalties. The United States, by contrast, has no law in place to restrict sex-selection abortion, establishing the United States as affording less protection from sex-based feticide than the Republic of India or the People’s Republic of China, whose recent practices of sex-selection abortion were vehemently and repeatedly condemned by United States congressional resolutions and by the United States Ambassador to the Commission on the Status of Women.
