Sex-Selective Abortion Thrives in America

The following comes from a press release on the LiveAction.org website.

Today, May 29, 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.

The Planned Parenthood staffer suggests that the woman get on Medicaid in order to pay for an ultrasound to determine the gender of her baby, even though she plans to use the knowledge for an elective abortion.

She also tells the woman to “just continue and try again” for the desired gender after aborting a girl, and adds, “Good luck, and I hope that you do get your boy.”

“The search-and-destroy targeting of baby girls through prenatal testing and abortion is a pandemic that is spreading across the globe,” notes Lila Rose, founder and president of Live Action. “Research proves that sex-selective abortion has now come to America. The abortion industry, led by Planned Parenthood, is a willing participant.”

Disgusting. Horrible. Foul. Evil. I’m sure there are many more adjectives to describe PP, but those sum it up. It’s Eugenics – and it’s founder’s dream to eliminate the “undesirables”. Extending that idea to sex selection is a very small step. If God doesn’t punish America for this kind of thing, He owes an apology to Sodom and Gamorrah.

We’re becoming more like India and China every day. This is just one more abomination that is ruining America and may well be why God’s graces are flowing here less and less.

We’re becoming as bad as communist China. What’s next? Killing a baby in the womb because science can forecast the kid will be gay, or a Democrat, or a used car salesman?

This is the truest form of evil in our world today. I feel so sorry for that girl Rebecca who will one day meet her two babies she aborted. This reminds me that we need to pray for all those who have had abortions for the Spirit of God to touch their hearts and ask for His Mercy. The saddest part to me is that if this were taking place with animals such as dogs and people were aborting female dogs animal rights groups would be up in arms and causing a national controversy, yet the killing of a child in utero is acceptable? We have so much work to do. God Love You.

And the OBAMA Administration continues to give our tax dollars to this organization, and its affiliates overseas. Further under Obamacare he wants all insurance companies and those who are self-insured to financially support Planned Parenthood as well. Obama is Evil.

The logic of abortion comes full-circle and turns on women themselves. Yet if the feminists display any thoughtful reticence at all, they are violating their core belief that abortion is a woman’s right and her’s alone. The only way out of this quandry is to confess their core belief is in error. Let us pray sex-selection abortion will stir some feminists out of their moral slumbers.

No shock here. The video does expose the lie of Planned Parenthood and “reproductive health.” Essentially, they hate women and they hate babies. Their real goals are population control and profit. I hope this video influences young women.

What irony! Under the guise of supporting women they use abortion (their choice) to selectively kill female children. Surely some of them have to see this hypocrisy.

Defunding of Planned Parenthood was approved by the US House (mostly on a Party basis), but the Senate wants to continue funnding PP. We need some new Senators. On the internet please see: “Endowment for Human Development”.

When there is significant numbers of imbalance between numbers of men and women – – society is ripe for rape and sexual slavery.

Clarification needed here: friends, the word “feminist” means one who supports equality for women. I’m extremely happy to tell you that many feminists are pro-life, including myself and my happily married, pro-life husband of 41 years! Yes, there are many men in favor of both women’s right and the right to life of all God’s children. Many feminists are not only Catholic, but traditional Catholics and political conservaties as well, including myself. You may have noticed that one group of feminists, called Feminists For Life (most famous member: Patricia Heaton) advertise their group right here on California Catholic Daily! It would make me proud to start seeing my fellow CCD posters reflecting their awareness of the crucial differences between pro-life feminists and pro-abortion feminists by using those defining descriptive adjectives in front of the words “feminism” and “feminist.” Pro-life feminists are absolutely committed to saving the lives of precious human babies. In fact, Feminists For Life have supported California Catholic Daily with many years of consistently advertising on CCD and are 100% actively pro life! Let’s make sure we don’t throw out the baby with the unclear appellation. Not all feminists are pro-life, but a substantial number of us believe women have the right to vote and equal pay, and babies have the right to live, just as God intended. Please know we think of this distinction as more significant than the difference between Democrats and Republicans, and it is important to define the term without lumping us all together as if we were identical. Feminists of the two different types share only one goal, equality for women. Pro-life feminists, as a group, work harder to support a baby’s right to life than we do to support women’s right to equality. Life itself is obviously even more absolutely essential than either quality of life or equality throughout life!

The Planned Parenthood Witches are stirring another brew to justify their hypocracy and repulsiveness. The recent, Komen for the Cure cave in to an organization that wants nothing but death at any stage of pregnancy for any reason and then get supported by the evil of our own Liberal Administration. If this case of a late term murder of a fully developed child because it’s sex does not please the parents is encouraged by Planned Parenthood, the parents should be sterilized to prevent future murder. Of course I’m sure the program for Harvard Educated sophisticates ilk et. al. would scream in horror! Pick and Choose Parents are no better than Murderers.

We have already started to be punished by God for our unfaithfulness. The name of this punishment is Obama!

Maryanne, thank you for your information on Feminists for Life and educating people about this.

Catherine I agree. I bet those who follow Obama do not see it as a punishment though. They are glorifying him and the unborn are still being killed. Sad times we live in.

BobOne, to be president, one can be born outside the United States, if one parent is a citizen and lived in the U.S. for at least one year and the other parent is a U.S. national. Obama’s father was a citizen of Kenya. It’s easy to see why this country is in so much trouble when so many of its citizens are ignorant of it’s laws. Obama, if for no other reason, is not qualified to be president because of this, even if he could produce a birth certicate. He was illegally elected and why nothing is being done about it is indicative that some very powerful/rich people have really put out alot of money. Apparently the presidency is for sale to the highest bidder and the only qualification the candidate needs is to be breathing (even if he is on dope or cigarettes) and a democrat. Someone that is for men marrying men, the wanton destruction of life, taking away people’s religious liberty and for unconscionable genetic engineering with no guards for conscience and ethics, not to mention using the government as his own personal pimp to live like some banana republic potentate is definitely not going to be nominated by the Republican party.

Maryanne Leonard, I stand corrected.

Isn’t it interesting that many try to suck us into a war with Syria and other countries because barbarism is going on there, and it probably is? I do not know, though, since I do not trust the media in most of anything any more. Some of them lie all the time by cutting out what they want in the interviews and videos they show. But at the same time most do not suggest that we clean up the barbarism in our own country — unborn children being torn up in the womb, unborn children burned to death by saline, some survivors still left to die with torn off limbs and burned faces in hospital sinks, and now the babarism par excellence — sex selection. I suggest we clean up our own houses before we put our noses in the business of other countries, lest we be judged as evil as they are, or supposedly are.

I said sex-selection is abortion par excellence because this “snake” (radical feminism) has bitten itself in the tail, not that the killing of unborn little boys is a lesser wrong. Go on line and look under abortion survivors, and you will see young women with their faces half burned off from surviving abortions. I am sure there are such young men too.

The counter-gendercide movement has made substantial progress since 1985, which was the year that Mary Anne Warren introduced the term gendercide into the public discussion. See Mary Anne Warren, _Gendercide: The Implications of Sex Selection_(Totowa, New Jersey: Rowman and Allanheld, 1985). The fact that the term gendercide has perdured for more than a quarter century is due to the enormity of the phenomenon to which it refers (Anna Diamantopoulou: “The United Nations estimate that 200 million females are missing in the world; women who should have been born or grown up, but were killed by infanticide or selective abortion”). Here is how Mary Anne Warren defines gendercide: “I define gendercide by analogy with genocide, as any wrongful act or practice which results in the deaths of persons of predominantly one sex, and/or reductions in the relative number of persons of that sex. Both are crimes against groups of people as well as individuals, and each may or may not involve homicide.” (Mary Anne Warren, “A Reply to Holmes on _Gendercide_,” Bioethics, Vol. 1, No. 1 (January 1987). Notice however that Warren’s definition of gendercide is exclusively demographic. Notice that she stops short of grounding her definition of gendercide in the recognition of the personeity of preborn infants. For a critique of Warren on this point, I am indebted to Raymond Dennehy’s integrally pro-life articulation of the personeity of preborn infants as a way of redressing the deficiencies in Warren’s exclusively demographic definition of gendercide (Raymond Dennehy, “Is There a Moral Justification for Abortion?” Public debate with Mary Anne Warren, University of San Francisco, March, 1990). See generally Joseph Meaney, “Gendercide: Where have all the girls gone?,” Human Life International, online; and Steven Ertelt, “New Campaign Targets Gendercide, Sex-Selection Abortions,” _LifeNews.com_ (May 1, 2011).

I think we can all agree that requesting/having abortions based on gender is about as low as a society can go. I didn’t think we could sink this low but we have and some people think its alright. A few prayers are in order.

Since Anne T. provides the symbol of the snake, and we’re discussing strategies and tactics, then it might be good to learn a bit about snake behavior. First, the serpent is 100% predator. There are various ways it stalks and catches its prey. I saw a new one (to me) the other day when out for a hike with my dog on a lead so as to minimize his risk of being bitten. One place I stopped to look around had a few holes in the side of the rise off the old trail. I noticed something in the entrance to one, about shoulder high and ten feet to the side. Upon taking a closer look, I saw a pit viper’s head and part of its body semi coiled but further back out of the light. Its camoflage was amazing. It was motionless but looking directly at me. I rolled a few pebbles its way to get it to do something, and eventually it recoiled slightly but really had no room to fully coil up. I decided not to bother it further because it was not a big one and was obviously intent on grabbing a meal, probably waiting for a rodent or small rabbit or bird to dash in there. The devil hides in plain sight sometimes and when we get too close, we can get bit. The cost of healing a rattlesnake bite today is over $10,000 according to a report I saw … Confession can cost us a great deal as well … but without it we may die from the venom and the digestive enzymes that dissolve flesh.

John, do you mean in ‘substantial progress’ that just bringing it to light in congress? This isn’t related, but the ancient Greeks and Romans left female babies on hillsides to die of exposure. It has always made me very disturbed at this preference for males…especially when you consider that when you’re old it is usually one’s daughter/s that provide the lion’s share of a parent/s.

Isn’t it any wonder….sex selection is not just about abortion or not but also about whether to disobey the natural law in place of order. Abortion/contraception has opened the door to demonic forces and ideals. Gay lifestyles is right next to that great evil. We have the innocent unborn and we have the loss of great human dignity when we mislead mankind into accepting homosexual lifestyles and that life has no value.

Although the Prenatal Non-discrimination Act of 2012 (HR 3541) (PRENDA) failed to garner the two-thirds majority vote needed to pass, we have every right to remain “heartened that a strong majority of House members voted to ban performing or coercing abortions for the purpose of eliminating unborn babies of an undesired sex — usually, girls.” Thus Douglas Johnson, the National Right to Life Committee’s Legislative Director. ~ Douglas Johnson adds: “Today’s groundbreaking majority vote was a stepping stone to this bill ultimately becoming law — perhaps after the replacement of some of the lawmakers who today were unwilling to protect victimized women and their unborn daughters from sex-selection abortions, because they were more concerned with maintaining favor with the abortion industry, pro-abortion advocacy groups, and Hollywood donors.” Also encouraging, I venture, is the fact that 20 Democrats rejected the dictat of abortocatic rule and voted in favor of PRENDA.
