Yesterday, a pro-life group released a video of an undercover sting operation it did at a Planned Parenthood clinic. In it, an Austin Planned Parenthood employee is seen advising a young woman about how to get an abortion should her unborn child be revealed to be a girl.
Now, I think it's horrifying to think of a mother or a clinic plotting to kill a child because it's a girl. But, then again, I oppose killing unborn children in general. I wasn't terribly surprised to find that Planned Parenthood, which believes that all abortions should be legal throughout pregnancy no matter what the reason, would support a woman killing her child because it's a girl.
Still, it's not good public relations for a group that receives more than $300 million a year in your taxpayer funds.
But what I don't get is their response, which I've summed up as follows:
1) That video is a hoax. Or it's edited to make it look worse. (Never mind that the entire video footage was released in unedited form, too.)
2) We fired the woman in question for not following protocol.
3) Sure, we'll do a sex-selection abortion if paid to do so.
I'm not even including the part where they say they condemn gender-based abortions. I guess that in Planned Parenthood-speak, "condemn" means "will take money to perform."
Here's the hoax/edited video featuring a woman who got fired for doing something that Planned Parenthood supports:
