A recent operation involved actors posing as pimps and prostitutes engaged in human trafficking and seeking birth control, STD testing and other family planning services.

"Greeting, uh..'comrade.' I am a pimp. I SAID I AM A PIMP. And uh...I'm looking for government paid for abortions for these prostitutes so that I can continue live in sin on the tax payers dime. I am also interested in abortion-causing tax payer funded birth control. In your response, comrade. Please speak loud and clear into this boutineer I have on my coat. Sieg Heil, long live the Socialist in Chief"


"As with the prior instances, we anticipate that once again this group, likely in coordination with a broad range of anti-abortion leaders, will soon launch a propaganda campaign with the goal of discrediting Planned Parenthood, and, ultimately, restricting women's health."

"Kate Bryan, a spokesperson for Live Action, would not confirm whether the group was behind the newest Planned Parenthood sting. "As you can understand, Live Action does not comment on any investigations until after public release," she said."

So, yes...

I'm guessing a lot of farkers have daughters, and some of those daughters may be a little uncomfortable speaking to you in detail about their gynecological health. Your daughters do have ovaries, and fallopian tubes, a cervix, and a vagina. (Look at the logo on your SuperFireChiefPowerMaxTurboNotHomoEroticThunder pickup truck for a handy diagram.) A large number of them go to PP for the kinds of basic health care that us guys usually got for free from the school team doctor. Like most of you, I made it through my teen years without ever needing healthcare aside from treating injuries. I know this is a shocker, but girls are different.

When your daughter is terrified because she's bleeding more than she normally does, or there's a lump in her breast that she doesn't think was there a few months ago, she's going to be waiting in line behind a couple of cinematic predators with hidden cameras* rather than finding out if she's just miscounting days, or she's got a bacterial infection that's going to leave her sterile in 24 hours, and dead in 48.

* except in Texas, where our esteemed Governor has told them to, basically, eat sh*t and die.

God Bless America.

Not trying to defend the psychos, but... They said that 9/10 services to PREGNANT WOMEN were abortions. I MIGHT could see that, but not really. Most PP's don't provide prenatal care; they'll usually refer pregnant women to doctors and/or to services like Medicaid for prenatal care if they find out that they're pregnant. While they provide a TON of services to non-pregnant women (Pap smears, breast exams, birth control, etc.), I can see them saying that they really don't do much for pregnant women.

That being said, even that seems unreasonable, but I guess it depends on how you define "services". In order to get an abortion, you have to get a pregnancy test, right? In a lot of states, ultrasound? Pregnancy options counseling? All those are "services", so even if the woman came in at 9 weeks of pregnancy seeking an abortion, 75% of the "services" she would receive would be NOT abortion.

/Not understanding how they get that statistic
//Think they pull it out of the pooper?
///Being anti-abortion activists, I'm guessing they've got plenty of experience with stuff going INTO the pooper.

If roughly half the abortions are for male fetuses how is this not a war on men as well?

If you have to pull dirty underhanded tricks to try and make your opponents look bad by misrepresenting them... you should probably re-evaluate your position because you're not on the "good" side anymore.

Nearly all the abortions performed at PP are of Americans. This is a war on the United States.
 
2012-04-24 02:15:45 AM  
Stuff like this really gives a window into the mind of the anti-abortion nut. They genuinely think that Planned Parenthood is primarily used to provide abortions to prostitutes at the behest of their pimps.

They aren't just using that as rhetoric to justify their insanity. They believe it so firmly that they use the premise to try tricking PP into revealing their evil scheme.

I actually complained about this to Huffpo a little while back. For some reason unknown to, well, anyone, their iPhone app ALSO autoplays videos that have recently started appearing in every other article they put up. Said videos not only lag everything to hell but also feature very loud sound that plays even if you're on silent.

It's the only app I've ever encountered that will blast sound at you when you have the phone on silent, which is a damn shame as it's one of my main ways of not losing myself completely to boredom in some of my lectures.

Hey, as long as 50 percent of those abortions were done on male fetuses, I'd be fine with it.

I have heard the anti-abortion types refer to abortions as an industry. As though the idea is sold to an unsuspecting public.

Women have been performing abortions on themselves for thousands of years and many have even been post natal.

Sex selection Abortions? I never even heard of that. Wow! just farking wow.
 
2012-04-24 02:24:56 AM  
FTA:

"Lawmakers on both a state and federal level have also latched onto the issue by introducing legislation that criminalizes doctors who perform abortions based on the race or gender of the fetus, although opponents of those laws say they force doctors into the inappropriate position of investigating a woman's personal motivations for seeking an abortion."


I have to add...

I don't approve of sex-selective or gender-selective abortions, but I have to wonder what would make a woman choose that sort of thing in the first place. I don't know many mothers who really CARE about their child's race or gender, but I do kind of fear what would happen to a woman who was in a difficult or dangerous situation and then told she couldn't have an abortion because the doctor didn't approve of her reasoning.

Like what if she was raped by a person of a different race, and when she went to the doctor, she made the mistake of saying something like, "I just couldn't handle it if I gave birth to a black baby." Yes, that's pretty harsh, but what if she MEANT that she couldn't live with the reminder of her trauma and then the doctor misinterpreted it?

Or what if she's been having an affair with someone of a different race and she's afraid that if her abusive husband finds out, he'll kill her?

Or what if her husband has said that he'll divorce her if she doesn't give him a son? (That's actually kind of become an issue in some parts of the country with a high influx of immigrants from Middle Eastern countries. I've known a couple of birth doulas who have had fathers walk out of the room and tell Mom that he was getting a divorce when the baby came out and the doctor said, "It's a girl." The mothers either refused to find out, had an inaccurate ultrasound, or didn't tell Dad in the hopes that he would fall in love with the baby when it was born and not divorce them.)

Or what if her husband is abusive, and as soon as she got pregnant, her husband stopped beating her because he said he would "never do anything to hurt our little girl." And she's afraid that if she DOESN'T give him a girl, he'll start beating her again.

I just can't see somebody seeking a sex-selective or race-selective abortion without having some seriously extenuating circumstances.

Then again, I can't see somebody seeking ANY abortion without some serious extenuating circumstances. Which is why as much as I love children and having children, I'm pro-choice. I've never known anybody who said, "Dammit! I got knocked up again! I've gotta go to Planned Parenthood and have this little bastard sucked out of my coont!" Usually it's more along the lines of, "I'm a single mother of two children who's working two part-time jobs to keep food on the table and neither job offers FMLA or paid maternity leave and if I end up out of work for even a week or two to give birth, my existing kids are going to starve," or, "I just got a restraining order on my abusive soon-to-be-ex-husband and managed to finally file for divorce after running away from him, and then I found out that he got me pregnant before he left. But in our state, if I'm pregnant, the divorce will be on hold until after the baby's born. Plus, he can file for custody of the child, and I don't want to have to deal with him in my life because if he knows where I am, he'll kill me."
