VIDEO: Ariz. abortion clinics agreed to illegally provide sex-selective abortions

Font Size:

The third video in a pro-life group’s series highlighting “Gendercide” in America shows two National Abortion Federation (NAF) clinics in Arizona agreeing to break state law and perform abortions because the mothers did not want to have female children.

Live Action’s new video features the Tucson Women’s Center and the Camelback Family Planning in Phoenix agreeing and advising a Live Action actor about obtaining a sex-selective abortion — even after both employees acknowledge the practice is illegal in Arizona.

Watch the video:

At the Camelback clinic, a counselor named Barb tells the Live Action actor hoping to abort her child due to its sex not to mention her motive.

“Don’t tell us that, because we don’t want to know.” Barb tells the actor in reference to the clinic’s abortion doctor, Live Action identifies as Gabrielle Goodrick. “You can tell her, she’s gonna tell you the same thing, just: ‘Don’t let it be known!’ She’s really good about that. You’ll like that about her.”

At the Tucson Women’s Center a surgical assistant named Francisco tells the actor that the clinic could be forced out of business if its staff were to knowingly perform sex-selective abortions, but assures her that he will not reveal her secret.

“We cannot terminate an abortion on sex. We could lose our license,” he says explaining the law. After some assurance from the actor that she will not tell the doctor, Francisco responds,”I’ll just forget about it.”

Arizona became the first U.S. state in the union to ban abortions on the basis of race or sex in March 2011. Federal legislation to ban the practice failed in a House vote last week.

According to Live Action president Lila Rose, Arizona needs to get on the ball with enforcing their ban.

“Sex-selective abortion is a global search-and-destroy mission against little girls that is spreading at an alarming rate. While we wait for Congress to pass the Prenatal Non-Discrimination Act to ban sex-selective abortion in the U.S., state authorities should vigorously enforce Arizona’s law,” she said in a statement. “The clinics supporting sex-selective abortion should be investigated, prosecuted, defunded, and delicensed immediately.”

The first two videos in Live Action’s series targeted Planned Parenthood, which labeled them a “hoax.” Still, the abortion provider stressed non-judgement in how it provides its services.

The National Abortion Federation did not immediately respond to requests from The Daily Caller for comment. TheDC will update this story if the organization responds.
