    YAY! [explain].
    The organization as a whole is not *encouraging* this. They simply do not judge a woman's reasoning behind wanting to have an abortion.

    You hypocrite.
  • Vitalani Simmeri... 2012/05/30 15:53:17
    Oh my goodness, it seems all the people responding to me today have no clue as to how a fully formed sentence works. Try again?

    How exactly am I a hypocrite?

    How about using your intellectual superiority to figure it out?

    By the way, was "Try again?" a question or a statement?
  • Vitalani Simmeri... 2012/05/30 20:47:42
    I was asking you to take another crack at what you were attempting to say.
    I have not said anything hypocritical.

    all kids are a blessing and a pain in the arse. It doesn't matter what sex they are. If you can have them the type shouldn't matter. Their worth the money they last a long time.

    Well, China aborted them after they were born. Oh, that's not abortion? Hmmmm. I guess it's a just matter of semantics or not whether they make it through that tube.

    Your Sodaheadline is more misrepresentation. According to YOUR source, Planned Parenthood does NOT "encourage women" to get sex-selection abortion. On the contrary, your source indicates that their position is that "Planned Parenthood condemns gender bias but refuses to condemn sex-selection abortions or say their centers will deny them." The Planned Parenthood staffer in the video was FIRED for violating PP protocols.

    “Gender bias is contrary to everything our organization works for daily in communities across the country. Planned Parenthood opposes racism and sexism in all forms, and we work to advance equity and human rights in the delivery of health care. Planned Parenthood condemns sex selection motivated by gender bias, and urges leaders to challenge the underlying conditions that lead to these beliefs and practices, including addressing the social, legal, economic, and political conditions that promote gender bias and lead some to value one gender over the other.”

    "Refusal to condemn" sex-selection abortions is not the same as "encouraging" sex-selection abortions. Such misrepresentation is par for the course in the Conservative Disinformation Network. This Sodaheadline should be added to the Sodaheadline Hall of Shame.

    Well.... so much for the Pro-Abortion supporters' USUAL justifications for murdering their child: "not ready/poor timing", "can't afford the baby", "done having children", "bad/no relationship with the father", "immature mother", "mother/fetus health concerns", and the ever-popular "rape/incest" (actually < 0.5%)

    What's next? Selectively destroying a life because the eye color is wrong?

    Aborting a life just because that precious life isn't the sex you were hoping for is MURDER. just as any abortion is MURDER!

    I guess if abortion is nothing more than a medical procedure, then what's wrong with killing a fetus based on its sex? All of a sudden femiinsts are squeemish because it's girl children that are being killed?


    We all know that. Killing an unborn child for any reason is immoral.

    pro life abortion is murder
  • OddPlatano 2012/05/29 16:16:02
    NAY! [explain why it shouldn't].
    I'm pro choice but to abort a baby based on gender is idiotic.
  • Marlow ... OddPlatano 2012/05/29 16:28:09
    Marlow ~ Let There Be Light
    Why is that? If it's ok to abort for any reason, why not for this one?
  • OddPlatano Marlow ... 2012/05/29 16:45:31
    I'm only for abortion on certain reasons like rape or if it threatens the mothers life.
  • Marlow ... OddPlatano 2012/05/29 16:49:48
    Marlow ~ Let There Be Light
    Ok, that's understandable, but that's not really pro-choice. Pro-choice is for any reason. I would say you are pro-life with a couple of qualifications. For me it's only the life of the mother.
  • tncdel OddPlatano 2012/05/29 17:25:57
    When necessary to save the life of the mother, I see no ethical problem with that. Though some mothers in the past opted to have their kid knowing it might cause their own death in the process of giving birth. But the wrong of killing an innocent baby does not make right the wrongfulness of rape. So two wrongs don't make a right.
  • OddPlatano tncdel 2012/05/29 19:15:24
    If it's rape some people aren't prepared for pregnancy or parenthood at that. Also, some mothers who it may affect may not want to die if it could kill them, they may have other children to tend to or something.
  • JackSchitt OddPlatano 2012/05/29 18:23:46
    The sad thing is that those 2 reasons account for less than 5% of all the abortions performed each year.

    When you look at the statistics and see how many women having abortions are: college educated, living WELL above the poverty level, in stable relationships, have other children, etc. it becomes obvious that the majority of abortions are performed because the pregnancy is "inconvenient".

    It is against everything in the core value of human beliefs to kill innocent children because of their sex.

    Also if they know the sex they are usually in their second trimester. When with the genocide stop?
  • Roger47 2012/05/29 15:41:15
    YAY! [explain].
    The group "Live Action" which is behind this "video" has a documented history of selectively editing their videos in an effort to make misleading propaganda. I would expect they did the same here. They need to release the unedited footage so we can see it for what it really is.

    mediamatters, the leftwing NAZI news.
  • HipJipC Roger47 2012/05/30 06:28:54
    Whether the video is selectively edited or not, that does not take away the fact that it is true.
    Whether it's Planned Parenthood or some other abortion clinic, it is real, and it has been happening in the U.S. at an increasing rate. Mostly with Asians who bring their culture and it's female infanticide with it. Worldwide it is sickening! "The use of abortion as a means of sex selection is a major social problem in a number of Asian countries, including China and India. There are credible estimates that 160 million women and girls are missing from the world due to sex selection, and the figure may be even higher."

    Luckily something is being done about it. Laws have to be made to keep the idiots at bay.

    This is such a very hot politcal subject that we should not offer opinions. Each side has dug in their kneels and with very rare exception no one will sway the other side.
  • tncdel Bob S 2012/05/29 17:28:58
    A seismic shift has occurred in the last five years or so nationally, going from a slight favoring of abortion to a significant majority today not favoring it.

    So either some folks are re-thinking their former positions, or more pro-abortion folks are dying off and being replaced by young adults who are predominantly pro-life.
  • tncdel 2012/05/29 15:32:59
    NAY! [explain why it shouldn't].
    That's gender discrimination.
