Gendercide???

Ok...i feel a little bad about supporting Planned Parenthood now that I learned that some clinics offer "gendercide"

Basically, if you find out your preggo with a girl, and you wanted a boy, or vice versa, you can "terminate" the pregnancy solely for that reason.

WTF WTF WTF WTF WTF????

How crazy is that shit???

Find the youtube video of it...it makes your stomach flip.

  • Well, those people getting the abortions do not believe it is a baby, so to them it's not a big deal.

    Really? You've not heard the argument that "it's not a baby until he can survive on it's own outside the womb...until then, it's just a fetus?"

    I don't believe that, but that's what some believe.

  • since you can terminate for any reason anyways, why not this one too? i find it horribly repugnant and yet within a couple's rights

    Planned Parenthood terminated the employee; "gendercide" is NOT allowed by Planned Parenthood.

  • Gdiamante beat me to it. The Youtube video was selectively edited to make it look like gendercide is allowed by Planned Parenthood. It has since been discredited.

  • So "gendercide" is not allowed, but how do they stop it? A girl goes to the doctor and finds out the gender and then goes to PP to get an abortion. She can easily say she just doesn't want a kid right now.
