‘Gendercide’: Anti-Abortion Group Releases Undercover Expose Purportedly Showing Planned Parenthood‘S Complicity In ’Sex

14 posts in this topic

Whether you are pro or against, this is just sad.....

Live Action, a pro-life group based in San Jose, California, went undercover to discover a troubling trend that is occurring across the globe — sex-selection abortion (the process of purposefully terminating a pregnancy based solely on the child’s gender). While this phenomenon is known to be occurring in China, among other nations, the organization claims that it’s also happening here in the United States of America.

In part one of a new video series entitled “Gendercide: Sex Selection in America,” the group, which also launched ProtectOurGirls.com to accompany the sting operation, visits an Austin, Texas, Planned Parenthood for an undercover investigation. The findings may disturb you.

“This was a multi-state, national investigation demonstrating that this is a widespread problem across our country,” Live Action president Lila Rose said in an interview with The Daily Caller on Monday. “First of all, the statistics and studies indicate that we are adding to the growing problem across the world of sex-selective targeting of unborn girls for abortion. We are going to be demonstrating — starting with this video from Texas — that the abortion industry in the United States is aiding and abetting this horrific problem.”

It was in April 2012 that Rose’s group investigated these abortion clinics to see what would happen if employees were asked about aborting based on gender. In part one, which was released this week, a Planned Parenthood employee named “Rebecca” can be seen speaking with the undercover woman, who makes it clear that she only wants to abort her child if, indeed, it is a female.

“In this video, what is astounding is that Rebecca, the Planned Parenthood counselor, starts arranging with the actor about how to get a late-term abortion,” Rose continued in her interview with the Daily Caller. “To wait until her pregnancy is so developed that — and using Medicaid for this, using the state to pay for the ultrasound to determine the gender, and then to do a late term abortion if it was a little girl.”

As Rose notes, the employee seems completely unfazed by the woman’s gender-based plans and proceeds to discuss the legalities of abortion, specifically the time-frame during which the baby’s sex is detectable and how much time the woman has to go through with the procedure.

The conversation between Rebecca and the actress also turns to Medicaid, which the employee claims can be used to help the potential patient determine the sex of her baby so that she can later abort if it is a female. This, of course, would purportedly be done covertly (i.e. without telling doctors of the intent to abort) so that the sonograms can be covered by government insurance before letting doctors know of the intention to abort.

“I have actually applied for Medicaid — got on Medicaid — as if I was going to continue my pregnancy. Went through the OB/GYN and then me and my husband decided that we were going to go ahead and terminate,” Rebecca explained, recounting her own experience. “We terminated, and I still stayed on Medicaid and just got on birth control. Right after I got on birth control, I just stopped using it.”

Then, the faux patient asked, “So, um, so then I could, um, then we could probably, you’re thinking, if we did that, we could probably get pregnant again soon after?”

Rebecca answered affirmatively and said that she has had four children and two abortions and that getting pregnant again soon after is absolutely permissible.

Also, here are some quotes from the founder of "Planned Parenthood" - I 'm pretty sure they don't use these motto's today - but shocking that this is how some people thought less than 100 years ago!

On blacks, immigrants and indigents:

"...human weeds,' 'reckless breeders,' 'spawning... human beings who never should have been born." Margaret Sanger, Pivot of Civilization, referring to immigrants and poor people

On sterilization & racial purification:

Sanger believed that, for the purpose of racial "purification," couples should be rewarded who chose sterilization. Birth Control in America, The Career of Margaret Sanger, by David Kennedy, p. 117, quoting a 1923 Sanger speech.

On the right of married couples to bear children:

Couples should be required to submit applications to have a child, she wrote in her "Plan for Peace."Birth Control Review, April 1932

On the purpose of birth control:

The purpose in promoting birth control was "to create a race of thoroughbreds," she wrote in theBirth Control Review, Nov. 1921 (p. 2)

On the rights of the handicapped and mentally ill, and racial minorities:

"More children from the fit, less from the unfit -- that is the chief aim of birth control." Birth Control Review, May 1919, p. 12

Those may have been taken out of context...

Looking past the pro life propaganda of this sting/video, it's terrible.

A few things to consider:

- Legalised abortion, like legalised anything, will result in those who act on the extremes, pushing limits and doing things others will find enraging and reprehensible. That's to be expected. There are obviously a wide range of reasons women terminate their own pregnancies, this is one of them. Taking this issue as a reason to ban abortions would be an enormous straw man.

- Woman's voluntary expulsion of a fetus is still a rightful choice, killing a pregnant mother and the fetus she carries is not. Does this really need to be explained? It may not be the most sensible thing from a moral perspective, but from an objective one.. duh?

Personally, and this is my subjective, yet probably highly offensive opinion... the type of women that selectively terminate a pregnancy based on gender (which is already 3+ months into it depending on how many ultrasounds are done and how well positioned the fetus is to observingly recognize gender), I have no problem admitting if they somehow become infertile as a result of infection or something else, or even die, I would applaud it. frack 'em.

I've found my children to be more than just a personal blessing, if certain women don't value life of the child they created, I will find myself in agreement with them and not value their life either. May you rest in peace without reproducing at all, thank you, good bye, and good riddance.

Planned Parenthood has it's roots in the Eugenics movement, it's founder was a hardcore racist who was involved in "The Negro Project".

She denounced him publicly but Hitler was a big fan of Margaret Sanger

Do your own research, Canada was knee deep in this as well. Our founder of universal health care, Tommy Douglas has a pretty dark history in Eugenics.

Just clarifying something..... you are referring to women who selectively terminate a pregnancy based on gender or any woman who terminates a pregnancy for any other reason?

Sterilisation: North Carolina grapples with legacy

By Daniel Nasaw BBC News, Washington

_53335617_elaine2bw224x299.jpg Ms Riddick, now 57, suffered decades of depression and illness

More than 60,000 Americans were sterilised, many against their will, as part of a eugenics movement that finished in 1979, aimed at keeping the poor and mentally ill from having children. Now, decades on, one state is considering compensation.

In 1968, Elaine Riddick was raped by a neighbour who threatened to kill her if she told what happened.

She was 13, the daughter of violent and abusive parents in the desperately poor country town of Winfall, in the US state of North Carolina.

While she was in hospital giving birth, the state violated her a second time, she says.

A social worker who had deemed her "feeble-minded" petitioned the state Eugenics Board to have her sterilised.

Officials coerced her illiterate grandmother into signing an "x" on an authorisation form. After performing a Caesarean section, doctors sterilised her "just like cutting a hog", she says.

"They killed my kids," Ms Riddick says. "They killed mine before they got to me. They stopped it."

Sterilisation in the UK and Europe

While eugenics is now recognised as a pseudoscience - and after the Nazis, one with murderous consequences - it was once a respectable branch of the social sciences.

The term 'eugenics', meaning "good birth", was coined in 1883 by Sir Francis Galton, an English scientist who pushed the University College London to found a department to study the field.

Sir Winston Churchill once called for forced sterilisation of "the feeble-minded and insane classes".

While eugenic sterilisation never became official policy in the UK - in part due to opposition from the Catholic church - Finland, Norway, and Sweden adopted the sterilisation laws in the 1930s.

Between 1933 and 1945, more than 400,000 Germans were sterilised under Nazi "racial hygiene" laws, according to the US Holocaust Memorial Museum.

Nearly four decades after the last person was sterilised under North Carolina's eugenics programme, a state task force is seeking the 2,900 victims of sterilisation officials estimate are still alive.

The group hopes to gather their stories and ultimately to recommend the state award them restitution. But with public coffers under severe pressure amid a flagging recovery, it is not clear the legislature will agree.

"I know I can't make it right but at least I can address it," said North Carolina state legislator Larry Womble. He hopes "to let the world know what a horrendous thing the government has perpetrated on these young boys and girls".

America's sterilisation movement was part of a broad effort to cleanse the country's population of characteristics and social groups deemed unwanted, an effort that included anti-race mixing and strict immigration quotas aimed at Eastern Europeans, Jews and Italians.

Beginning with Indiana in 1907, 32 states eventually passed laws allowing authorities to order the sterilisation of people deemed unfit to breed. The last programme ended in 1979.

The victims were criminals and juvenile delinquents, women deemed sexual deviants, homosexual men, poor people on welfare, people who were mentally ill or suffered from epilepsy. African Americans and Hispanic Americans were disproportionately targeted in some states.

'Coerced'

"In general it was the dispossessed of society," said Paul Lombardo, a historian and legal scholar at Georgia State University and editor of A Century of Eugenics in America.

Sterilisation petitions

  • An 18-year-old girl, separated from her husband who had "manifested anti-social behaviour"

  • A black 25-year-old rape victim who showed "abnormal sexual tendencies"

  • A 16-year-old girl who had earlier been committed to a state institution for "sexual delinquency" and whose aunt "signed consent"

  • A white married mother of three, whose family had been "finally dependent for many years" and has "a history of inter-marriage with Indian and Negro"

  • A 15-year girl deemed "feebleminded"; parents reportedly consented

North Carolina Eugenics Board, 25 October 1950

The laws were plainly coercive, scholars say, though some incorporated a veneer of consent - illiterate farmhands given forms to sign, institutional inmates told they would not be released with their bodies intact, poor parents told they would be denied public assistance if they did not approve the removal of a wayward daughter's fallopian tubes.

Motivating the laws, Prof Lombardo said, was indignation at the thought that people who had violated sexual mores would subsequently end up needing public assistance.

"We have in this country have always been extremely sensitive to notions of public stories of inappropriate sexuality," he said.

"We exercise that most dramatically when it comes to times in which we think we're spending individual tax money to support people who violate those social norms. It's our puritanical background, running up against our sense of individualism."

Supreme Court approval

The racial context was inescapable as well.

"The fewer black babies we have the better, that's what some people said," Prof Lombardo said. "'They're just going to end up on welfare.'"

_53338740_1969meetingminutes304x171.jpg The state eugenics board issued orders to sterilise poor North Carolinians with bureaucratic efficiency

Also implicated in American sterilisation laws was the classical eugenic notion that as with horses, authorities could use genetic principles to improve society through selective breeding.

In a 1927 US Supreme Court decision that upheld the laws, storied jurist Oliver Wendell Holmes wrote: "It is better for all the world if, instead of waiting to execute degenerate offspring for crime or to let them starve for their imbecility, society can prevent those who are manifestly unfit from continuing their kind."

All told, scholars estimate more than 60,000 Americans were sterilised under eugenics laws in the 20th Century.

North Carolina's law stood out for the wide net it cast.

Telling their stories

Most states would only order sterilisation of institutional inmates or patients, North Carolina's allowed for people within the community - typically social workers - to petition the state to have someone sterilised.

_53338743_womble224x299.jpg Rep Womble says the eugenics programme "borders on genocide"

Of the 1,110 men and 6,418 women sterilised in North Carolina between 1929 and 1974, state health officials estimate about 2,900 could still be alive.

In recent years several states have re-examined their forgotten legacies - prodded in some cases by newspaper investigations - and extended official apologies.

North Carolina did so in 2003, but Mr Womble has continued to push for monetary compensation to the victims.

This month, a state task force created by his legislation will hold a public session at which surviving victims are expected to tell their stories.

The group will eventually make a recommendation for compensation to the governor - $20,000 per person has been suggested.

But the state is facing a $2.5bn (£1.5bn) budget shortfall. The conservative Republicans in control of the state legislature are already poised to slash transport, healthcare and education funds, so it seems unlikely lawmakers will authorise as much as $58m in reparations.

_53335623_x-her-mark-304x171.jpg Some illiterate patients signed an X on forms consenting to be sterilised

"My hope is that the state will recognise that there's never going to be a good time for compensation," says Charmaine Cooper, executive director of the Justice for Sterilization Victims Task Force, the state body.

Among those expected to testify is Ms Riddick, who now lives in Atlanta. She describes the prospect of a $20,000 payment as an insult.

"I am very angry," she says. "God said be fruitful and multiply. They did not only sin against me, they sinned against God
