Planned Parenthood Has a History of Supporting Sex-Selection Abortions

Washington, DC (LiveActionNews) — Planned Parenthood never runs out of ways to shock conscientious Americans. Every Live Action investigation of the corrupt, government-funded organization adds insult to injury for the American taxpayers who keep them in business (whether they like it or not). Here’s a recap of a couple of Planned Parenthood’s most shocking and disturbing attributes:
We’ve known for a long time that Planned Parenthood is anything but a pro-woman organization. But new evidence obtained by LifeNews unveils a new level of their misogynistic tendencies. A letter from the Planned Parenthood Affiliates of California to the state legislature this month stated:
Amendments to oppose special restrictions on abortion are intended to create barriers on women from seeking safe, legal abortions. Restrictions like mandated waiting periods, sex selection abortion bans, required ultrasounds, or those that apply only to abortion providers, facilities or drugs do not improve or protect women’s health, they simply limit access to reproductive healthcare.
It’s a well-established fact that girls are the most common targets of sex-selection abortion. Gendercide is rampant in countries like India and China. And thanks to Planned Parenthood, gendercide may now be happening in our own American communities.
2. Planned Parenthood is complicit with infanticide practices.
We know that infanticide is not an uncommon occurrence and that abortionists like Kermit Gosnell and Douglas Karpen are not anomalous. Planned Parenthood has repeatedly nodded its head to the practice. Notably, in 2012, when a spokesperson for the organization said that infanticide should be a decision that’s left between a woman and her doctor. Alisa LaPolt Snow, a spokesperson for Planned Parenthood, told the Florida legislature:
We believe that any decision that’s made [after a baby survives a failed abortion] should be left up to the woman, her family, and the physician.
When asked what Planned Parenthood would do if a baby survived a botched abortion and was struggling for life on one of its operating tables, Snow played the typical Planned Parenthood ignorance card:
I do not have that information. I am not a physician, I am not an abortion provider. So I do not have that information.
