Video: Hawaii Planned Parenthood helps patients get sex-selection abortions on taxpayers’ dime
HONOLULU, HAWAII, June 13, 2012, (LifeSiteNews.com) – Live Action released new undercover footage today showing two Planned Parenthood clinics, in Maui and Honolulu, advising a woman how best to procure a sex-selective abortion of her baby girl because she wants a boy instead.

“If that’s, you know, if that’s what you wanna base your decision on—really—it’s up to you,” assures the Maui Planned Parenthood counselor, Leslie Watson, when a purportedly pregnant woman explains she wants an abortion because of the sex of the baby.
Watson counsels the woman to be certain about the sex of her unborn child before going through with an abortion, telling her to seek an ultrasound from an OB/GYN and not to worry if he might judge a sex-selective abortion.
“This is your reason and this is your situation. So, they should be accommodating because this can help you determine and it’s nobody’s business and nobody’s reason but yours,” she says.
In Honolulu, the Planned Parenthood counselor “Rogue” tells the woman it is okay to have multiple abortions of girl pregnancies so long as the abortions are spaced far enough apart. The Planned Parenthood counselor suggests paying for the abortions using Hawaii’s QUEST state health insurance.
“So if I wanted to terminate a girl the government would pay for it?” asks the woman. “They don’t care,” the Planned Parenthood counselor replies.
Today’s video is the fourth in Live Action’s “Gendercide” project, documenting Planned Parenthood and the National Abortion Federation’s support for sex-selective abortion in America. Footage for six different clinics in four different states can be viewed at www.ProtectOurGirls.com, a hub of research and information on sex-selective abortions.
“This latest footage shows Planned Parenthood’s abortion-first mentality deployed in the service of a search-and-destroy mission against pre-born girls,” said Lila Rose, founder and president of Live Action, in a press release Wednesday. “Sex-selective abortion is a prime example of how Planned Parenthood’s abortion empire is the real war on women. And in Hawaii and many other states, taxpaying Americans who are overwhelmingly opposed to sex-selective abortion foot the bill.”
Six studies in the past four years indicate that there are thousands of “missing girls” in the U.S. from sex-selective abortion.
The UK, India, Australia, and other countries ban sex-selective abortion. The United States, save for three states, does not.
The House of Representatives recently took up the Prenatal Non-Discrimination Act (PRENDA), which would ban sex-selective abortions nationally. Planned Parenthood’s CEO Cecile Richards opposed PRENDA in a statement on the grounds that it would “limit [a woman’s] choices.”
