June 13, 2012 | Honolulu, HI – 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. Planned Parenthood claims publicly to condemn sex-selective abortion but continues to provide the service.
“If that’s, you know, if that’s what you wanna base your decision on–really–it’s up to you,” assures the Maui Planned Parenthood couselor, Leslie Watson, when a purportedly pregnant woman explains she wants an abortion because of the sex of the baby. Watson counsels the woman to be certain about the sex of her unborn child before going through with an abortion, telling her to seek an ultrasound from an OB/GYN and not to worry if they might judge a sex-selective abortion:
“This is your reason and this is your situation. So they should be accommodating because this can help you determine and it’s nobody’s business and nobody’s reason but yours.”
In Honolulu, the Planned Parenthood counselor “Rogue” tells the woman it is okay to have multiple abortions of girl pregnancies so long as the abortions are spaced far enough apart. The Planned Parenthood counselor suggests paying for the abortions using Hawaii’s QUEST state health insurance. “So if I wanted to terminate a girl the government would pay for it?” asks the woman. “They don’t care,” the Planned Parenthood counselor replies.
Today’s video is the fourth in Live Action’s “Gendercide” project, documenting Planned Parenthood and the National Abortion Federation’s support for sex-selective abortion in America. Footage for 6 different clinics in 4 different states can be viewed at www.ProtectOurGirls.com, a hub of research and information on sex-selective abortions.
