Sex-Selective Abortion Thrives in America, Courtesy Planned Parenthood

Chilling Undercover Video Sheds Light on Growing Trend

AUSTIN, May 29 – Today, 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.”

Six studies in the past four years indicate that there are thousands of “missing girls” in the U.S., many from sex-selective abortion. The U.K., India, Australia, and other countries ban sex-selective abortion, but the U.S., save for three states, does not. On Wednesday, Congress will debate the Prenatal Non-Discrimination Act (PRENDA), which would ban sex-selective abortions nationally.

“Planned Parenthood and their ruthless abortion-first mentality is the real ‘war on women’,” says Rose. “Sex-selective abortion is gender discrimination with lethal consequences for little girls.”

    THANK YOU for protecting women and children.

    • http://profile.yahoo.com/56G7GPDSLAH67MZ6DIQVMHZJ5Q May

      1st yes sex selection abortion is wrong, whether its a girl or a boy they abort getting rid of a baby because of its gender is totally wrong but these people who did this video arent protecting women and children they are just venting their own views & they were illegally videoing inside PP.
      Protecting women and children would be to do more about the child molesters the poverty of single women and single moms and kids who outgrew foster care at 18 and have no where to go.
      Why doesnt someone start trying to fix those things first? then maybe there won’t be so many women and teenagers who have abortions or consider them. Why does everyone complain about the problems but waste all the time trying to prove it, instead of trying to fix problems at the root of it, abuse, neglect, uncared for mentally ill girls who end up homeless at 18…maybe if they put more care into those who aren’t being protected PP wouldnt be their only resort in desperation after feeling rejected.
      One of my friends was a year older then me I was 13 she was 14 she got pregnant, they put the baby in foster care, the baby was abused to death. She was a foster kid herself, I watched her fall deeper, she was so crushed by that when a mutual firend had gotten pregnant a year later she told her get an abortion. Its a cycle. It rarely starts at the time they decide to abort, usually it starts before that. Its the helpless and desperate. Maybe if they had more outreach for teenage girls and young women and homeless women and women who have suffered and are traumazied there would be no  more need for abortions except by  atheists and anti-theist who don’t care. If you made them feel like people would be there for them if they keep the baby or help them to find a couple to adopt their baby in an opened adoption where they could visit and see there baby was okay then a lot of teenage girls and women in their 20s and early 30s who are poor & desperate wouldnt feel like they have no choices but to get rid of the baby.

      It saddens me that people fight over the outcome but rarely care about what is the #1 cause that PP is become such a big and corrupt company. They wouldnt need it if people never got to that point of desperation. You want a cause, how about making better options more widely available,  how about looking after the well being of women who were given such hardships that they get so scared to bring a baby into it.

      I have never had an abortion and am mostly against it, but I was raped as a little girl, and molested. I was abused. If I had gotten pregnant from being raped I’d likely have killed myself. God knows I tried a lot of times to end my life. I saw my friends who suffered similiar things. Poverty doesnt mean lazy it means they are too afraid or traumatized to admit what held them back and distracted them in school to ever get to college, it means they try to be tough by drugging and drinking and when they are pregnant and drug addicted they think its better to not bring an accidental baby into the world. The orphans the fatherless, the sick the weak the elderly, the widows you’re supposed to be caring for them too, not just the babies. Yes babies being killed is terrible, but babies living in a tortured situation is just as bad, and the worst cases are never found out, they kids get abused but the abusers stop before anyone can see. I know because one of my best friends had that for years, she didnt even tell me, her best friend, when she finally did it was after her grandmother who knew finally decided to stop being afraid of the men in the family and called for help for my best friend who had just been thrown down a flight of stairs.

      Okay I’ll get off my soap box, but that’s the flat out truth. Poverty is brutual, abuse is brutual, women think they are doing their kid a favor by sparing them that life. its just really sad that the true causes get ignored while people fight over tiny details like how horrible PP is. yeah okay we get it they are a bad organazation. But why is so much effort put into arguing things to those who don’t listen anyway instead fight for alternatives. Put your voice to good use. Find better answers for these damaged people who are willing to go to PP out of desperation. Think about it, maybe you can find a way. Maybe we all can agree that they need alternatives, they need hotlines for abuse being handed out to little kids, incase they are being abused and tell all te kids what counts as abuse so they can get out before it gets to bad, do the same for teenage girls, and boys,  offer programs for open adoption, make a difference not just a comment

        Honey, they aren’t interested in doing the heavy lifting.  It’s a lot easier to sit back and point fingers and tear someone down than to commit and build people up.  Don’t ever get off your soap box, someone’s gotta speak out about these distortions.

        • JackInTulsiTown

          Killing a child is wrong.  There is no justification for it.  I am willing to do the “heavy lifting”.  My wife and I are going through the ultra-expensive process of adoption right now; specifically for a girl.  I am the second child my mother had, as the first was aborted.  It never, ever, left her that she killed her own just to avoid bringing it into a bad situation.  I was born into a apartment with dirt floors and a abusive birth-father; and yet I’ve survived and thrived.  I chose to carry on no matter what.  This isn’t finger pointing.  This isn’t high-horsed rhetoric.  Abortion gets at the very core of human decency.  Either you care more about the life of the child more than your own motives, or you don’t.  Either you are going to do whatever is necessary to raise them, or you aren’t.  Life isn’t easy, it isn’t clean, it isn’t always happy, it isn’t always safe, it is almost always inconvenient and it certainly is worth every minute.  Every fiber of every living being is born with the overpowering desire to live.  That fact alone should tell you what you need to know about abortion.  The guilt, the fear, the neverending nights of anguish over whether or not to kill your child is meant to guide you away from it.  There are thousands of programs, billions of dollars, and millions of people waiting to care for; adopt from; and reach out to mothers – if aren’t near one, get there.  My mother hitch-hiked across Ontario, Canada in the winter; getting frostbite on her feat; while I was in utero to get to a safe place.  It can be done, and I am breathing proof.  There are no distortions here. While there are a miriad of causes to lead a woman to get a abortion, the results are all the same; dead children and shattered parents.  If the abusive situations are the trigger, and abortion is the bullet; energy must be spent on both if we as a nation are to correct the self-destructive behavior of killing one’s own offspring.

      • Pamela Crouch

        May, I understand you are speaking from a place of deep pain, and I don’t want to cheapen or disregard that. What you experienced is real, and nobody other than the Lord can tell you anything about it. You are very brave to share your experiences, and even to try to prevent, if possible, more pain in other people’s lives. That is compassionate and kindhearted.

        However, I do want to sort of point out that it seems like you are assuming that pro-lifers only oppose abortion, and not other forms of violence against women. Nothing could be further from the truth. The pro-lifers I know are good people who would never dream of abusing an infant to death. They give to the poor, work at soup kitchens, work for Meals on Wheels, and so on. Speaking only for my family, my husband has just joined the board of a new charity that will fight human trafficking which you probably know is sexual slavery. The girls will be put in a halfway house to protect their lives until they can be helped to find a better way of life. On our own, we go to the projects, giving out money, clothes, baby items, and so on. We give away cars. We allow homeless people to live in our house for free. We pay bills for people who can’t afford to pay them, or pay for repairs that people cannot afford. So, to assume that pro-lifers care only about the unborn is not really very fair. Many of us do care about unaborted babies, who are just people, and we do help them, even making sacrifices at times to help others as Jesus did.

        I pray that God will bless you with an encounter with a Christian believer who truly loves as Jesus taught. Christians are not Jesus, but if you catch one on the right day, you just might see a little glimpse or hint of Christ. To see true love, however, you really have to go right to the Lord and let him love you. He is the only one who can comfort you from all your past trauma and even heal your emotions and your memories. Please trust him, because he loves you so.

      • Rufus

        Who said these things can only be accomplished one at a time, in a linear fashion, and according to the schedule you dictate? Your suggestion is pure deflection, and permits the slaughter of the new Holocaust continue unabated while people continue to debate about issues that have less to do with abortion than you’d like for us to believe. Is abuse worse than wholesale murder? Is poverty worse then wholesale murder? Let’s all sit around and talk about it while PP continues its crimes against humanity.

  • Oedipa

    Congratulations on producing some video catnip that, I’m sure, congressmen like Cliff Stearns and Jeff Sessions will be sniffing until they can’t see straight.

    I’m curious, though, when some of the other video will be available for viewing? You see, PP clinics in 11 states reported two dozen hoax visits using the same sort of provocative ruse. Is this the only one that netted a worker contradicting what is PP’s official stance on the matter?

    • Sic Borodin

       Have you never seen one of these campaigns before? If you think this is the only video Live Action got of Planned Parenthood acting in despicable/stomach-turning ways, you really need to pay more attention.

      Of course, it’s not hard to do. Abortion on demand, for any reason whatsoever, is Planned Parenthood’s driving philosophy.  (Might have something to do with the money involved…)

      • Oedipa

        I have, actually; it’s what interested me in LiveAction in the first place (I find the James O’Keefe brand of hoax journalism too emotionally manipulative and too willfully lacking in context). So, if there are more roll-outs, it will be interesting.

        Just note that if the LiveAction position is that the practice of sex selection — a fundementally sexist act — somehow justifies further curtailing women’s rights, vis-a-vis denying *all* abortions, then this will be seen as tactical political manoeuver, and really nothing else.

        • Guest

          Let’s be clear here.  You really think that this video is Live Action’s only argument against abortion?

          Come on, now.  You’ve been here far too long to really think that way.

          • Max

            As if any “hoax journalism” is necessary to expose the sewer that is Planned Parenthood.

            Poor Komen, the ingenue’s ingenue, discovered rather quickly that hell hath no fury like the nation’s largest abortionist slighted.  After a few days of pummeling by Big Abortion’s surrogates, Komen came to the “I’ve got my mind right, boss” epiphany that life really isn’t so bad on the Big Abortion plantation after all.

            Yep, I guess it taught you nothing.

    Is there a way to close PP doors down and make them invalid, by providing high quality healthcare to women using the normal routes. Like universal healthcare coverage with comprehensive exams for preventative care. In fact, maybe this should apply to men and women, but my concern is that because our government has failed us/ is failing us, alternate and sometimes questionable entities crop up. With them come some potentially dubious aspects. Seems like the very politicians that are against PP have in their power the ability to compete them into nonexistence rather than detroy them, leaving another vacuum, which will inevitably be filled somehow, someway.

    • Spaceshiprepairman

      Define “normal routes” with regard to those women who of low or very low income, or are in rural areas, or even in slums and ghettoes.

      The very nature of Planned Parenthood is just that, family planning, and not necessarily through abortions.

      And it has been demonstrated that preventive healthcare is quite cost-effective in the general long run.

      But, it would be nice if these same politicians who rail against PP were to in fact support alternatives.

      Planned Parenthood was founded because there were no alternatives.

      But then, those same politicians would prefer that all those pesky and pernicious low income and very low income women would simply either go away or just die off.

      But, barring that, they’d prefer that those women and those concerned about those women just shut up and take what they are given, because “this is America, the greatest country in the world”, so anything the politicians deign to give them, or dump on them, no matter what, should be considered a full and complete blessing, even if it is ovarian cancer that could’ve been diagnosed early, but wasn’t because Planned Parenthood had the funding for that witheld or taken away.

      • grdawg

        Uh wow.  Pro-lifers do actually care about women’s health issues.  And there are plenty of places besides Planned Parenthood that can – and do – care for women.  Take county health centers for one example.  Women have never needed Planned Parenthood.  They just like to make women think they do…

    Are you as sure about this as you want to be? Is there an alternate source of data, which can independently corroborate these charges?

    Otherwise, without a “second opinion”, so to speak, this video, and rather inartfully edited at that, makes unfounded claims.

    But then, if anyone decides to stake their belief that PP is a corrupt and evil organization, fine and dandy.

    Me, I prefer to look at other supporting data before I decide to get out the lynching ropes and quicklime.

    I suppose it is better to blindly condemn, rather than try to learn any further truths, which might even help one achieve an even better understanding of a given subject.

    I wonder if such treatment like this would also work in a criminal trial, after all, if one sees in the news that the defendant is a terrible person, and that the authors of the various news articles call for their incarceration or even execution, then why have a trial?

    “Let’s lynch ‘em, because they deserve it”, with no independent fact finding.

      Before you play the “heavily edited” care, watch the full footage.  Then decide for yourself.

      • Spaceshiprepairman

        I did, and even then, the “full footage” she presents appears to be rather inartfully edited. I guess she took her lessons from O’Keefe to heart. This is an interesting legacy from a discredited videographer/convicted criminal.

        • megrits

           So, you view facts as mearly “opinions” right?  Have you looked at other evidence? There are plenty of other evidence out there that supports the truth about PP.  Apparently,  you choose not to believe the truths that are in front of your very eyes in this video.  It appears that you are not interested in the truth,  only what you are comfortable with believing.

        • Guest

          How exactly was the full footage heavily edited?

      • Spaceshiprepairman

        Apparently, you feel that viewing the full footage is sufficient corroboration, a “second opinion”, totally independent of the previous evidence, therefor justifying your undying condemnation. A prosecutor would love you, even in a death penalty case, because you’d’ve already made up your mind to punish, and with great relish.

        BTW, are you of the same mind when it comes to your own medical issues, that you simply decide on the strength of just one opinion, as well as similar statements from the same solitary source?

        • Guest

          What previous evidence are you referring to?  The published studies show that sex-selection is a problem in the U.S.

    • http://profile.yahoo.com/56G7GPDSLAH67MZ6DIQVMHZJ5Q May

      I think they are too big a company to be controlled. But I thought that before I saw this article. No one should be lynched or comdemned. People should just be held accountable to their choices as companies. Personally I am against using any big company like this to handle the issues of moms and mothers-to-be. Then if there is anyone who is corrupt in the company its harder to hide it.

  • Oedipa

    So Republicans in the House of Representatives are set to introduce the “Susan B. Anthony and Frederick Douglass Prenatal Nondiscrimination Act”, attempting to move it to the floor under suspension of the rules today, which will probably fail. They’ll introduce it under normal procedures later, surely, which should pass.

    So, given this very, very “coincidental” timing, is Ms. Rose and LiveAction willing to admit that they’ve become an arm of the Republican party? Coordinating publicity stunts and pet policy proposals for maximum effect?

    • Spaceshiprepairman

      dinncha know?
      Lila is pure as the driven snow and has not a hint of sin in her spirit, for her cause is just, and any means necessary to further that cause is justified, including heavy and inartful editing, “coincidental” witholding of conflicting information(such as the fact, in view of a previous set of videos concerning sex trafficking, the fact that PP had just previously reported to the authorities suspicions of someone sex trafficking), as well as a general attitude of having already condemned them, none of this is to be held against her because “everyone knows” that PP is an evil organization, bent on enforced and non-stop abortions, at least seeing the majority of the posts and replies here.

      • Guest

        That’s a lot of strawmen you’ve packed in that run-on sentence.  Nobody is perfect and free of sin.  I respect Lila Rose and admire the work that she’s done, but that doesn’t make her infallible.  Her cause is just, but that doesn’t imply that any means to advance it are justified.

        How exactly was this video heavily edited?  I would agree that this would be wrong, but you have provided no evidence to support this claim.

        Regarding the sex-trafficking videos, Planned Parenthood contacted the FBI 3-7 days after the recording (after they realized they were being stung, and not in accordance with state law).

        No, not “everyone knows” that Planned Parenthood is not an ethical organization.  If that were the case, projects like this wouldn’t be necessary.

        I’m pretty sure it’s legal to refuse to do an abortion for the sake of sex-selection, which is not what the employee did.

Do what you will with your body, and leave mine alone.

      They are telling men and women what to do with their bodies, they are telling them what to eat and drink and what not to.  So, you agree that people should eat and drink what they choose to put in their bodies and be left alone about that.  Good.  As for the rape issue, that is more about control than anything else.  A smart woman can prevent that.  Even the weak grow strong if they set their minds to it.

        Did they deserve rape? Well maybe you want to euthonize all us dumb raped girls then. Set your mind to not be raped before you ever heard the word rape? Yeah go take one of your 4 year old relatives and leave them in a room with a rapist. then come back and tell them how stupid they were for not knowing how sick adults can be, or how abusive people can twist their mind until they think its their fault they were raped. You have no idea what it is to live in that sort of person hell. Maybe one day you will but unlike you I don’t feel the need to add suffering to everyone who is not like me. If you havent been raped you have no right to talk about it.

    • liveaction

      The baby is not the mother’s body. It should be obvious especially how a little boy has a very different body than his mother. So yes, do what you want with your own body, but that does not mean we should freely allow you to take life from another’s body.

Support equal rights and then affirm woman as sexual objects so that if a pregnancy is inconvenient just kill the little B****d! This is too sick!

  • Nerdmom920

    Planned Parenthood does not make judgements about why women might want to pursue abortions.  I find it hypocritical to judge an organization because they do not judge, and moreover because they do not make the judgements that you would make. 93% of what Planned Parenthood does is not abortions.  They provide basic medical care to low income women.   If you’re so interested in helping women and children, develop a national organization that provides the basic medical care to women who can’t afford it for a reduced rate or free of charge and drive Planned Parenthood out of business. Because what I rarely hear Pro-Life advocates talk about is who is going to fill the medical care gap once Planned Parenthood is out of the picture.  I rarely see that because the issue of abortions that Planned Parenthood provides is purposely conflated in order to procure extreme emotional responses, instead of having a reasonable discussion about what is to be done to prevent unwanted pregnancy.  Now you’re using sex-selected abortions, when there is NO evidence for this in the United States and in fact the gender ratio for boys to girls is COMPLETELY within normal parameters?   Can someone read Handmaid’s Tale before they start a national organization to disenfranchise poor women?  

    • Guest

      In less sugarcoated terms, Planned Parenthood will do an abortion for any reason whatsoever, even if it contradicts what they say is an integral part of their mission (women’s empowerment).  That is hypocritical.  It is not hypocritical for an anti-abortion organization to oppose an organization that will do an abortion for any reason.

      The official statistic is that 97% of what Planned Parenthood does is not abortions (or its complement, 3% of what they do is abortion).  It’s very misleading for a number of reasons.  I think the most important one is that this 3% corresponds to the destruction of over 300000 human beings every year:

      If the Ku Klux Klan provided healthcare to low income women, would you still oppose it?  If so, then pro-lifers are not obligated to stop opposing Planned Parenthood for this reason.

      What do you propose should be done to prevent unwanted pregnancy?  How does pro-life advocates’ supposed inability to discuss that validate your position or Planned Parenthood’s existence?

      I actually have read The Handmaid’s Tale.  It’s an excellent example of a moon landing skeptic taking a strawman version of the pro-life position and over-dramatizing it in an anti-Christian, dystopian work of fiction.  As a Canadian, I must say it depresses me that such a composition is considered the pinnacle of our literature.  I don’t know or care whether Lila Rose has read it.  She’s read more books than I have, but she might spend her time with more rewarding material.

        You are ignoring the fact that PP provides AFFORDABLE health care to women. Where is my alternative if you all close PP, and why are more of you not concerned about this? PP has been my medical provider for 17 years, and I have always found their clinics and doctors informative, comfortable, and affordable. I do not believe that I would ever personally get an abortion, but I cannot say for certain that my mind could not change if I was raped. It is a VERY personal choice. I HAVE NOT BEEN GIVEN THE POWER TO JUDGE PEOPLE, nor have you. If you believe abortion is wrong, let God do the judging when the time comes. IT IS NOT YOUR RIGHT TO PUSH YOUR BELIEFS ONTO OTHER PEOPLE. And if you are all thinking that abortions are wrong because they “take the lives of humans”, why are you not equally abhorred by war (where many innocent civilians are killed) or by the Death Penalty (or are you okay killing a person society deems “evil”)? I just wish you people would find something better to do than force your beliefs on others and JUDGE them. You have no right to judge…God did not give that right to you.

          For someone who hasn’t been given the power to judge people, I must say that your post comes across as very judgmental. I never ignored the fact that Planned Parenthood provides some healthcare (though the “affordable” part is questionable – a counselor in one of Live Action’s videos called the STD tests “sort of expensive here”). I discussed that in my previous post. There are thousands of community health centres that provide the same services, along with any primary physicians. Furthermore, shouldn’t you be asking Planned Parenthood the same question (why they’re more concerned with something they say is only 3% of what they do than they are with your healthcare)?

          I am not “judging other people” (though I never specified that I’m a Christian theist). As a rational person with an understanding of logic and moral reasoning however, I am certainly entitled to judge actions. Knowledge and moral reasoning have led me to the conclusion that abortion is an act of violence that unjustifiably kills a human being, and therefore should not be legal in a just society. And an organization that performs over 300000 abortions per year ought to be opposed. I could be wrong, but you would need to show this. Do you support laws against rape, or would this be equivalent to “judging people” and “forcing your beliefs on others” (and you’d be content with “letting God do the judging when the time comes”)?

          How you can predict that a total stranger is okay with war and the death penalty is beyond me. Assuming both are morally equivalent to abortion (which is highly controversial – the deaths in a just war are foreseeable but not intentional and the death penalty is considered by some to be justifiable killing), I should still spend more time on something that takes more human lives. Abortion takes the cake here. Finally, even if abortion opponents are NOT doing whatever they should be on war or the death penalty, it does not follow that abortion should be legal or that Planned Parenthood is a legitimate organization. That would be an ad hominem argument.

    There are so many disstressing issues involved with this video that I almost don’t know where to begin. Even though I really don’t like to write or post anything it seriously bothered me so i’ll try to express my thougths as best as i can.
    Anti-abortion hurts women and female gendercide hurts women.
    To quote The Economist:
    “How to stop half the sky crashing down – And all countries need to raise the value of girls. They should encourage female education; abolish laws and customs that prevent daughters inheriting property; make examples of hospitals and clinics with impossible sex ratios; get women engaged in public life—using everything from television newsreaders to women traffic police. Mao Zedong said “women hold up half the sky.” The world needs to do more to prevent a gendercide that will have the sky crashing down.” The Economist is a paper that thinks, “this newspaper…think[s] abortion should be “safe, legal and rare” (to use Bill Clinton’s phrase)”.
    I completely agree with those two quotes. I hope everyone reads the article “The War On Baby Girls”. It’s not about demonizing abortion or abortion clinics, it’s about the worldwide catastrophe of valuing boys more than girls. When cultures everywhere give girls and women more respect, education, equality and healthcare, then gender discrimination and gendercide will end and abortion will be more rare.

    There can be little doubt that PP has now deliberately managed to put into effect the original eugenics-inspired plan of its founder. Between its targeted elimination of blacks and females, there’s little to distinguish PP from the SS.

    • Name

      Yeah, every time I walk into a PP clinic, it’s like walking directly into the pits of hell. Fetuses everywhere. Blacks and women being demonized. Baskets of free condoms just screaming for some hot interracial, gay action.Give me a break you ignorant bible thumpers.

    It’s odd that the live action organization and anti-choice organizations are the only actual examples of anyone wanting sex selective abortions. Planned parenthood does the best they can with crazy people so why are you making their jobs that much more harder?

    • jessie

      when dose a person say, “no” you cannot abort becasue its a girl or a boy? who cares if it makes there jobs harder. your in healthcare, healthcare is not easy.what happen to morals in heathcare? Its not about choice its about money, planned parenthood is a crime family that is put on an image of that is saying ” be responsible” and yet they are not “bing responsible” to law or this country. explane that one?

  • Tamar

    I don’t mean to defend abortion, but is it accurate to say that banning sex-selective abortion will “protect our girls?” In places like China, where having a son is so important culturally, a lot of parents will seek abortion if they learn the baby is a girl. Here, though, it seems like boy/girl preferences vary a lot among couples, and even that most mothers who have a preference hope for girls. In fact the last time I heard of a woman actually considering an abortion for sex selection it was because she was pregnant with her third son and wanted a daughter.

    such bullshit… why do you people have no pity on these women?

    I don’t understand how any woman can possibly try and justify killing a baby. It makes no sense. It’s murder and there reasons for stooping to that level are so stupid. I myself was raped and became pregnant as a result. I could have taken the easy way out and just killed my baby but I was raised better than that. Yes, it was hard, bringing a baby into the world that was conceived in that manner but I knew what happened wasn’t my daughter’s fault, and I’m SO glad I have her because she’s a beautiful, innocent human being. No baby, no girl or boy deserves to be killed. Babies feel pain when you kill them and no real woman can possibly justify committing the atrocious act of choosing to kill her own child. It is sick and wrong. They say “It’s my body and I can do whatever I want to it” but think about it. When a person gets an abortion it’s NOT their body that they are killing, it is a babies. and if a babies father is a rapist is it really fair to punish the baby for that?! NO! The baby is innocent.
