Video: Planned Parenthood Encourages Woman to Get Sex-Selection Abortion
The investigative pro-life group Live Action, which has released videos exposing the abuses at the Planned Parenthood abortion business across the country, has released a new video today showing a Planned Parenthood abortion clinic in Austin, Texas encouraging a woman to get a sex-selection abortion.
The video shows a Planned Parenthood staffer encouraging the woman to obtain a late-term abortion because she was purportedly carrying a girl and wanted to have a boy. The video is the first in a new series titled Gendercide: Sex-Selection in America, that Live Action tells LifeNews will be exposing the practice of sex-selective abortion in the United States and how Planned Parenthood and the rest of the abortion industry facilitate the selective elimination of baby girls in the womb. http://www.lifenews.com/2012/05/29/video-planned-parenthood-encourages-woman-to-get-sex-selection-abortion/
Planned Parenthood: We Won t Deny Women Sex-Selection Abortions
Planned Parenthood officials have responded to today s expose video showing how a staffer at an Austin, Texas planned Parenthood clinic encouraged a woman inquiring about an abortion to determine the gender of her unborn child to have one.

Congress Votes on Sex-Selection Abortion Ban Tomorrow
One day after a new video exposing how Planned Parenthood encourages women to have sex-selection abortions, the House of Representatives will vote on legislation that would ban such abortions in the United States.
The House will consider the Prenatal Nondiscrimination Act, a bill to ban sex-selection abortions, that was introduced by pro-life Rep. Trent Franks (R-AZ) and was approved by the House Judiciary Committee on February 16. Because H.R. 3541 will be considered on the Suspension Calendar, a two-thirds majority will be necessary for passage. http://www.lifenews.com/2012/05/29/congress-votes-on-sex-selection-abortion-ban-tomorrow/

The House will consider the Prenatal Nondiscrimination Act, a bill to ban sex-selection abortions, that was introduced by pro-life Rep. Trent Franks (R-AZ) and was approved by the House Judiciary Committee on February 16. Because H.R. 3541 will be considered on the Suspension Calendar, a two-thirds majority will be necessary for passage. http://www.lifenews.com/2012/05/29/pro-choice-group-opposes-bill-to-ban-sex-selection-abortion/

Planned Parenthood Does One Abortion Every 97 Seconds
AddictingInfo.org blogger Stephen Foster recently tried to refute claims made by Pennsylvania Representative Daryl Metcalfe about Planned Parenthood, titling the article Pennsylvania Congressman Falsely Claims That Planned Parenthood Performs An Abortion Every 95 Seconds. Sorry, Foster, but this assertion is pretty accurate. I ll break it down for you.
Planned Parenthood performs 330,000 of the 1,200,000 abortions in America annually. This means that Planned Parenthood performs about 27% of all American abortions, or 887 of the 3,287 abortions performed daily.

My name is Julia.

Shh! Don t Tell Women Considering Abortion There s a Baby
Have you heard those stories about German churches that sang their hymns louder and louder so as to drown out the screams of the Jews being transported to the death camps on a nearby railway? Well, something horribly similar is happening again today, this time in the state of Texas. http://www.lifenews.com/2012/05/29/shh-dont-tell-women-considering-abortion-theres-a-baby/
Obama s HHS Mandate Not Just Unconstitutional, But Ungodly
Conservatives who ve warned for years of President Obama s ideological extremism are often dismissed as melodramatic conspiracy theorists.
