Live Action Continues to Uncover Sex-Selective Abortions

By Heather Mathews for PPSIMMONS      

I previously wrote about an undercover investigation of sex-selective abortion in Texas.  Now, Live Action has released another video that revealed two clinics in Arizona aiding women to obtain such “services,” although sex-selective abortion is a felony in Arizona.

At Camelback Family Planning in Phoenix and Tucson Women's Center in Tucson, abortion workers facilitated the cover-up after hearing the woman specifically request a sex-selective abortion.

The woman tells a counselor named Barb at the Camelback clinic that she already has a girl and wants to try for a boy.  Barb advises, “Don’t tell us that, because we don’t want to know.” Referring to the clinic’s abortion doctor, Gabrielle Goodrick, Barb said, “You can tell her, she’s gonna tell you the same thing, just: Don’t let it be down! She’s really good about that. You’ll like that about her.”1

Surgical assistant Francisco, at the Tucson clinic, tells the woman, “We could lose our license,” but then said “I’ll just forget about it…but just be sure not to mention it” to the abortion doctor.2

Live Action has sent the full footage from the Arizona clinics to the state Attorney General, Tom Horne, and to local law enforcement.3

Live Action president Lila Rose urges: “Sex-selective abortion is a global search-and-destroy mission against little girls that is spreading at an alarming rate. While we wait for Congress to pass the Prenatal Non-Discrimination Act to ban sex-selective abortion in the U.S., state authorities should vigorously enforce Arizona’s law. The clinics supporting sex-selective abortion should be investigated, prosecuted, defunded, and delicensed immediately.”4

On May 31, Live Action released another video of a Planned Parenthood worker at the Margaret Sanger clinic in New York City advising a woman to have either an amniocentesis or a CVS test (chorionic villus sampling) to determine the sex earlier than a standard ultrasound.5
