Third Undercover Abortion Video Shows AZ Clinics Allegedly Allowing Gender-Based 'Terminations' Despite Being Illegal

News

"Don't tell us that, because we don't want to know."

Live Action is back with a third installment in its series on sex-selective abortion. In its first two exposes in the "Gendercide: Sex Selection in America" sequence, the anti-abortion group showed clips of staffers at Planned Parenthood branches in Texas and New York seemingly being complicit in gender-based abortions.

Now, a third video has been released, showcasing similar activities at two Phoenix, Arizona, clinics. However, this clip, pending it's authenticity, could be the most revealing of the three, as sex-selective abortion is explicitly illegal in the state.

In the clip, Live Action claims that two National Abortion Federation (NAF) member clinics in Arizona are shown agreeing to break the law to perform gender-selective abortions. The clinics, Camelback Family Planning in Phoenix and the Tucson Women's Center in Tucson, reportedly promised to ignore regulations, while helping a woman lie to cover-up the would-be illegal procedure.

An official description of the video explains more:

When the woman purportedly seeking to abort her girl and try again for a boy explains this at the Camelback clinic, a counselor named Barb advises, "Don't tell us that, because we don't want to know." Referring to the clinic's abortion doctor, Gabrielle Goodrick, Barb says, "You can tell her, she's gonna tell you the same thing, just: Don't let it be down! She's really good about that. You'll like that about her."

At the Tucson clinic, the surgical assistant Francisco tells the woman, "We could lose our license," but agrees to cover-up her sex-selective abortion. "I'll just forget about it," he says, "But just be sure not to mention it" to the abortion doctor--"Don't even mention it to him."

In Arizona, sex-selective abortion is a felony. As a result of this newly-released video, Live Action allegedly sent the clip to Arizona Attorney General Tom Horne and to local officials.

Just to reiterate, it should be noted that the footage shows both clinics stating that state law prevents them from performing abortions based on sex-selection. The staff member at the Tucson Women's Center, though, seems somewhat more cautious when he hears the woman's reasoning for wanting to terminate.

"We, uh, can't do your abortion, then. We cannot terminate an abortion on sex," he explained, as highlighted in the official video description. "We could lose our license."

When the actress inquired, he explained that state law limits sex-selective terminations, going on to tell her that "Arizona is just crazy about abortions." The clip, which is heavily-edited, seems to show him contemplating whether to allow the procedure to move forward. In the end, he tells the woman not to mention her gender-based reasoning to the doctor.
