Failed Lila Rose hoax and “PRENDA the pretenda” bill inspire dialogue around sex-selective abortion

As Vanessa explained yesterday, the House of Representatives is set vote on the Prenatal Nondiscrimination Act (PRENDA), legislation that would ban abortion performed based on the fetus’ sex.  The vote was scheduled to happen today, but was pushed to tomorrow at the last minute. You’ll remember that the law would require doctors to report any person seeking an abortion to the authorities if there’s any suspicion the abortion is sex-selective — and if they don’t report them, the doctors themselves could face jail time.

The timing is very auspicious. Live Action, the anti-choice group with a history of staging failed “sting” and hoax operations inside Planned Parenthood, has released their latest missive, and it is also focused on sex-selective ...

It happens because in almost every culture around the world, boys and men are valued more than girls and women. It happens because boys and men have, on the whole, better lives – more rights, more opportunities, more freedom – than girls and women. Men are not ...

Undercover anti-choicers use sex-selective abortion in attempt to discredit Planned Parenthood

It seems that anti-choice zealot Lila Rose and her team at Live Action may be at it again. You’ll no doubt remember that last year the conservative “sting” operation “uncovered” the horrifying fact that Planned Parenthood provides health information and services to sex trafficking victims. Now a string of similar incidents suggests the focus of Live Action’s next video may be sex-selective abortion. The Huffington Post report:

According to Planned Parenthood spokesperson Chloe Cooney, clinics in at least 11 states have reported two dozen or more “hoax visits” over the past several weeks, in which a woman walks into a clinic, claims to be pregnant and asks a particular pattern of provocative questions about sex-selective abortions, such as how ...
