Planned Parenthood is helping girls… to come out in pieces

Seth MacFarlane, creator of Family Guy” and American Dad, has stayed true to form with his new cowboy epic, A Million Ways to Die in the West. The American western holds a special place in cinematic history, and if you’re longing to see a classic tale of virtue and justice play out on the big screen, then I have an excellent piece of advice for you.

Stay out of the theater.

Starring MacFarlane as well as embryology expert Sarah Silverman, A Million Ways to Die in the West reviews the many threats that one faced on the frontier. It also covers the different means by which Christians can be mocked and defecation depicted. Say what you will about John Wayne, he didn’t need excrement jokes to sell tickets.

I’ve got standards, Pilgrim.

Offensive material is nothing new for Mr. MacFarlane. In 2009,the Fox network refused to air an episode of Family Guy that attacked pro-lifers. Entitled “Partial Terms of Endearment,” it featured a character who explained his opposition to abortion with the line, “If God wanted us to kill babies, he’d make them all Chinese girls.”

While Seth MacFarlane may consider gendercide to be a joke, Planned Parenthood takes the matter seriously. So seriously, in fact, that it opposes laws against gender selective abortions and employs staff who are willing to set them up.

In some parts of the world, girls have a tendency to disappear after birth. And, in recent decades, they’ve been disappearing after their first ultrasound as the preference in some parts of Asia for sons over daughters has led to the widespread use of gender selective abortion. The problem exists in North America, too. According to a report published in the Canadian Medical Association Journal, Canada has become “a haven” for sex selective abortion, resulting in an as yet unsuccessful push there to outlaw the practice. Similar moves have been made in the US, although Planned Parenthood has made clear that it is not on board.

In 2011, Arizona Governor Jan Brewer signed legislation making it a felony for doctors to perform a sex or race selective abortion. Planned Parenthood spokesperson  Bryan Howard responded that, “This law creates a highly unusual requirement that women state publicly their reason for choosing to terminate a pregnancy — a private decision they already made with their physician, partner and family.” In fact, the law does not require a woman to state (publicly or otherwise) her reason for aborting a child. However, when women have explicitly asked to dispose of a daughter, Planned Parenthood staff have been quick to offer assistance.

Live Action volunteers with hidden cameras have gone to Planned Parenthood clinics in multiple states seeking gender selective abortions. Visits in New York, Hawaii, North Carolina, and Texas all produced video footage of staff who were willing to help women determine the sex of their baby and arrange an abortion if the child turned out to be female. One staffer in Hawaii even explained how such an abortion could be paid for with public money.

It should be noted that if the a little girl is aborted around the start of the second trimester then she will typically face a technique known as “D&E” (dilation & evacuation). This consists of using a set of forceps to pull her apart one piece at a time. Evidence gathered by by Dr. Kawaljeet Anand at the University of Tennessee indicating that a pre-born child is capable of feeling pain at twenty weeks is obviously not a matter of concern for Planned Parenthood.

Although Planned Parenthood may take a blase attitude to all of this, most Americans do not. Polls show that an overwhelming majority of the public is opposed to gendercide, with a significant portion also concerned about fetal suffering. You can add your voice to that number by signing Live Action’s petition calling for Planned Parenthood to be stripped of the half a billion in federal funding that it receives. Girls already face plenty of challenges; a federally subsidized death shouldn’t be one of them.

    Awesome article Adam as usual
    However you left out the fact that some pro aborts want to allow the baby girl to make it to week 24 before having her killed so as to harvest her ovaries for the growing number of infertile couples

    I wish I was making that up

    • Sara

      This is one of the sickest thing I’ve read… To take the eggs from a poor girl who never got to live, and then create life from it… But the aborted child never got to live, that is extremely unfair and sick. And imagine finding out your mother was aborted. It’s absolutely sickening

      • PJ4

        I agree
        But imagine the glee the pro aborts have over this

      • http://www.idonthaveawebsite.com JDC

        Well they got to live. Just not outside the womb. I do agree that it is sickening however.

        • Sara

          That is sort of what I meant by not getting to live, but it’s good you’re making it clearer. Cause children are alive in the womb as well of course!

    • DianaG2

      I am about to vomit. I also wish you were making that up.

    Fewer girls means fewer mothers, also means fewer future clients, no wonder they are desperate for immigrants to have access to abortion. How are they gonna survive? Their “services” are non-sustainable

    • Thomas

      Majority of the immigrant populations that are strong in their numbers in the US, are Christian. For example, there is a ZERO chance for Mexicans to become “pro-choice” even though this immigrant group is heavely courted by the democratic party. Mexicans may vote democratic based on immigration policy consideration BUT still uphold the Roman Catholic doctrines so central to their culture. Same applies to other immigrant groups strongly rooted in Christianity.

      I’d argue that the ermphasis may be relevant more to the children of immigrants but still it is a big hit or miss for the democrats. In other words, it is an uphill battle for the pro-abortion crowd…

      • Ingrid Heimark

        It is no doubt that the pro-aborts themselves see latn-americans and immigrants from Mexico as a future client group, especially in the Texas debate and location of a new clinic. Let’s hope they are wrong, and that the liberals immigration support is what finally “bites abortion in the ass”

        • Thomas

          How many immigrants in Texas can afford upwards of $500 for an abortion? Will the killing factory (PP) offer this “procedure” on a sliding scale??

          I doubt that the new location will be a hit in the immigrant community based on the two considerations mentioned above.

      • MamaBear

        Sorry, but many Hispanic immigrants are not as committed to Catholicism as you think. Many stay nominally Catholic, but attend only a few times a year, and their children even less. (There are of still those who are still devout Catholics, plus there is a strong Evangelical movement among Hispanics, but they are not a majority.)
        Planned Parenthood has a strong campaign going in Arizona to recruit these young Hispanic women into both promiscuous sex with birth control and abortions. Right now, their teen pregnancy rate is higher than both whites and blacks.
        Hispanics are still more resistant to PP than blacks and whites, but not as much as you think. I live among them. I worked for years with their children. I had many Hispanic students whose siblings each had different dads. Many with single mothers who had clearly been teens when their child was born.

        • Thomas

          MamaBear, I live in the midwest and the Latino population here is very much as Roman Catholic as one can become. True that Evangelical hold is becoming stronger on that immigrant population but statistically insignificant.

          • MamaBear

            I’m glad they are holding those values there. As an Evangelical myself, it does not bother me to see the ones who turn Evangelical. We hold the same values in morals and families, as both Evangelicals and Catholics get those values from the Bible. And although there are many who come into the predominantly white Evangelical churches, many more establish their own which a very distinct Hispanic style.
            But, far too many Hispanics around here seem to have left God behind when they came here. And the toehold the drug cartels have sends out a negative influence far larger than just the few actively involved with them.
            We have Hispanics families who have been here since territorial days (here first), ones who immigrated generations ago (not exactly immigrants anymore), and new, both legal and illegal immigrants. A much more complex mix than where you have primarily new immigrants.

  • MamaBear

    A few years back, a coworker, highly educated professional married to a professional in another field, told us in tears about what she had expected to be a happy experience. They were looking at the ultrasound and saw she was expecting an apparently healthy baby girl. Her joy quickly turned to anger when her husband asked, “Since we already have a girl, is there a chance that something (a penis) could still grow there?” They did not come from a cultural or ethnic group that stressed having male babies.

    • Ingrid Heimark

      I hope they kept the child….. I think actually, if I have a child, I would want a girl….

      • MamaBear

        She kept the child and eventually dumped the husband.

        • Ingrid Heimark

          Way to go!

        • http://liveactionnews.org/author/adam-peters/ Adam Peters

          That sounds like a good trade.

        • Thomas

          Lots of men want a boy, it is that simple. Patriarchy is alive and well in the USA, as a result of cultural and (perhaps) ethnic influences.

          Women can abort without the husband’s consent as it creates an “undue burden” according to the SCOTUS. In comparison, this man’s only transgression was voicing (albeit w/o forethought) a desire to have a son. Hardly a reason to dump a husband don’t you think?

          I would not assassinate another’s character based on words, rather I’d prefer to base my assessment on the actions of that person.

          Best regards from one pro-lifer to another.

          • MamaBear

            I said she eventually dumped him.
            For the sake of brevity, I left out that the doctor had had to explain to him that not only would their girl not turn into a boy, but abortion because she was a girl was out of the question.
            The divorce was actually several years later. She developed a non-pregnancy related health problem and was told no more children.
            In time, he started resenting time she spent on childcare, while refusing to help with it. (Basics like nighttime baths, teeth, and jammies.)
            He started drinking. Spending large amounts of money on himself. They even had to hire a finance manager to force him to contribute to family needs and slow down his spending.
            He refused marriage counseling.
            When they divorced, he bragged to multiple people that he managed to withhold child support until she lost the house to foreclosure.
            Enough actions?
            Would the marriage have lasted if that baby had been a boy? Who knows? I suspect there would have been something else sooner or later.

          • Thomas

            Thank you for clarifying further MamaBear. Now I have a fuller picture of this man’s actions that followed that one verbal flop.

            While it’s true that there are plenty of dead-beat husbands and fathers, I’d prefer a happier ending. Does he have contact with the children?

          • MamaBear

            Last I knew, he did little visitation. She changed schools and I only saw her at district meetings. Last I knew, she said she had pulled her life together, started back to church, and was thinking of remarrying. Then I retired due to health. So I really don’t know.

          • DianaG2

            Not surprising, considering this husband’s PHRASEOLOGY.

        • DianaG2

          Ha, ha! Good for her!

          See my comment, above? I hadn’t even seen this yet.

    • DianaG2

      I hope she dumped the SOB? Quick.

      • Thomas

        We accept the person and criticise only his actions. At conception, we have been made in the image of God himself but we are fallible as a species.
