On last night’s The O’Reilly Factor, Bill O’Reilly slammed Planned Parenthood for providing advice to a woman about determining the gender of a fetus before deciding on an abortion.
Last month, an activist from the pro-life group Live Action used a hidden camera to record video footage of an apparent willingness by Planned Parenthood to perform a sex-selective abortion.
An outspoken critic of abortion, O’Reilly asked his viewers if the United States was adopting the same gender control policies of China and encouraged his viewers to remember the Live Action video the next time a politician spoke in support for Planned Parenthood.
O’Reilly also voiced his disgust with the $500 million dollars that Planned Parenthood received from the federal government in 2010, noting that those taxpayer funds account for 47% of their total funding.
Regarding the legal issues associated with the video, O’Reilly called for disciplinary action to be taken against the counselor in the video.
O’Reilly note that currently four states do have existing laws regulating sex-selection abortions, but mentioned that such laws were “bogus, because nobody’s going to walk in to any abortion clinic and say ‘I wanna abort the fetus because I don’t like the gender,’ nobody’s gonna do that.”
Regarding ways that the girl would convince the abortion provider that her abortion was not gender-related, O’Reilly noted how they could simply say things like, “I have a headache, I can’t support the child,” and still be approved.
O’Reilly concluded by castigating President Obama, saying that “he doesn’t want any restriction on any abortion at all,” and asked his viewers to remember this video the next time a politician or a celebrity praises Planned Parenthood.
