A Planned Parenthood worker appeared on a sting video trying to help an apparently pregnant woman get an abortion because the woman didn’t want a girl. Of course the woman wasn’t really pregnant, etc. It was a sting to expose sex-selective abortions.
While the worker was in an entry level position and Planned Parenthood has already apologized for the incident, this all looks really, really bad for an already embattled Planned Parenthood.
I’m seriously pro-choice, but sex-selective abortions are ridiculous and probably shouldn’t be allowed (then again, who’s dumb enough to admit to wanting a sex-selective abortion anyway?). Regardless, what’s going to happen now is the far-right is going to loses its shpadoinkle and use this as another excuse to shut down Planned Parenthood. Tragedy following tragedy.
