A friend of mine posted an article and video (link below) regarding how Planned Parenthood counsels a woman to abort a baby girl if that’s not what she wants. Basically, she tells her a late term abortion, which is just a little over 5 months (23 week limit) is legal. She says many doctors frown on it because everything is pretty much already formed at that point. The woman, who is under cover, wants to see what they tell her to do and get it on tape. The fact that this is going on in this country, and so matter of factly, is mind boggling. When Roe vs. Wade was passed it started with first semester abortions, then I learned about the appalling facts involved in partial birth abortions, and now this??? If it’s a girl just throw the baby away and start over? I don't think that is what is meant by "planned parenthood!"
The video goes on to explain that the “elimination” of baby girls is a world wide practice and that to date 100 million baby girls have been aborted or victims of infanticide just for being girls. The thought of this is frightening to say the least. I know China has a limit of one child per family and many parents there prefer to have a boy. Other countries apparently are open to gendercide, but I would not have expected this to be occurring in our country so openly and so freely.
What in the world does it say of the people who have a gender preference and would destroy a perfectly healthy baby girl just because she isn’t a boy? I can’t even get my brain to wrap itself around this idea for any reason. Even if you have five girls and you are trying for a boy. If it’s another girl, that is still a blessing, it’s still a miracle. This is nothing more than people wanting to play God. Before you know it people will want to genetically design their children to have a certain eye or hair color, a certain height, and whatever else they find desirable. Maybe with the advances made in the next ten years it will be possible to decide more than just the sex of the baby. Where should the line be drawn and who will draw it? How can anyone think this is even remotely okay? In the United States gender based abortions are legal in all but three states. The article that accompanies the video says that Congress will be discussing a new law, Prenatal Non-Discrimination Act (PRENA), which would ban sex-selective abortions. If this isn’t a no brainer, I don’t know what is.
Maybe I will wake up tomorrow and be in an episode of the Twilight Zone?
