  • 00:02:20.070 --> 00:02:23.160
  • DECEPTIVELY EDITED VIDEOS RELEASED BY A GROUP THAT IS
  • 00:02:23.170 --> 00:02:27.100

  • -I THINK WHAT
  • 00:02:53.280 --> 00:02:55.030
  • WE NEED TO LOOK AT IS THE BUSINESS OF ABORTION. AND THE
  • 00:02:55.040 --> 00:02:57.070
  • BUSINESS OF ABORTION STARTS WITH A SALE. -AN ORGANIZATION IS
  • 00:02:57.080 --> 00:03:00.020
  • CHOPPING UP CHILDREN AND SELLING THE BODY PARTS TO THE HIGHEST
  • 00:03:00.030 --> 00:03:03.060

  • 00:03:03.070 --> 00:03:06.040
  • IS THEY'VE BEEN CAUGHT RED-HANDED. -I WAS TOLD IT WAS
  • 00:03:06.050 --> 00:03:08.200

  • 00:03:08.210 --> 00:03:11.170
  • SAID IT'S NOT A BABY. IT'S A BLOB OF TISSUE. -WE REALLY DID
  • 00:03:11.180 --> 00:03:15.180
  • TREAT WOMEN LIKE SECOND-CLASS CITIZENS. -DO NOT EVER KID
  • 00:03:15.190 --> 00:03:19.100
  • YOURSELF. THEY KNOW EXACTLY WHAT THEY'RE DOING. -WE WERE DRIVEN
  • 00:03:19.110 --> 00:03:22.120
  • BY THIS QUOTA. -I DIDN'T WANT THE BAGGAGE, IN ALL HONESTY, OF
  • 00:03:22.130 --> 00:03:27.250

  • 00:03:27.260 --> 00:03:31.070
  • -SHE SAID THIS IS THE BEST CHOICE FOR YOU. -THEY'RE IN THE
  • 00:03:31.080 --> 00:03:33.240
  • BUSINESS OF ABORTION. THEY WORSHIP AT THE ALTAR OF
  • 00:03:33.250 --> 00:03:36.180
  • ABORTION. -MOST PEOPLE WORKING IN THE ABORTION CLINIC MAKE MORE
  • 00:03:36.190 --> 00:03:39.260
  • MONEY THAN THEY CAN ANYWHERE ELSE. -DOES NO ONE SEE WHAT'S

  • REALLY GOING ON IN AMERICA? IS THIS REALLY WHO WE'RE GONNA BE?
  • 00:03:44.100 --> 00:03:47.260
  • -FOLKS, AS WE GO INTO A BREAK, LET ME JUST ASK YOU TO PRAY FOR
  • 00:03:47.270 --> 00:03:50.010
  • THE AMERICAN CENTER FOR LAW AND JUSTICE, FOR OUR ATTORNEYS, FOR
  • 00:03:50.020 --> 00:03:53.080
  • OUR GOVERNMENT AFFAIRS TEAM, FOR OUR STAFF, FOR OUR PRODUCTION

  • TEAMS THAT PUT ALL OF THIS TOGETHER FOR YOU, FOR ALL THE
  • 00:03:56.070 --> 00:03:58.210
  • PIECES OF THE ACLJ THAT COME TOGETHER TO BRING YOU THESE
  • 00:03:58.220 --> 00:04:02.230
  • BROADCASTS SO THAT WE CAN, ONE, GET YOU INFORMED ON THE ISSUES,
  • 00:04:02.240 --> 00:04:06.070
  • BUT ALSO, REMEMBER, WE'RE FIGHTING THE ISSUES AS WELL, NOT
  • 00:04:06.080 --> 00:04:09.280
  • JUST TALKING ABOUT THEM. SO PRAY FOR OUR TEAM, FROM THE
  • 00:04:09.290 --> 00:04:13.000
  • ATTORNEYS, TO THE PRODUCTION FOLKS, TO THE PEOPLE PUTTING
  • 00:04:13.010 --> 00:04:16.000
  • TOGETHER, AGAIN, THE PIECES OF MAIL, THE EMAILS THAT YOU

  • -CAN YOU TELL ME HOW
  • 00:04:35.260 --> 00:04:37.030
  • MANY OF YOUR AFFILIATES RECEIVE THE MAJORITY OF THEIR REVENUE
  • 00:04:37.040 --> 00:04:40.120
  • FROM ABORTION? -I DON'T KNOW THAT ANSWER. -COULD YOU GET IT
  • 00:04:40.130 --> 00:04:44.280
  • FOR ME? -I'LL TALK TO MY TEAM. -THANKS. -BUT I DO THINK IT'S
  • 00:04:44.290 --> 00:04:49.020
  • IMPORTANT TO UNDERSTAND THAT ABORTION PROCEDURES ARE PROBABLY
  • 00:04:49.030 --> 00:04:53.100
  • MORE EXPENSIVE THAN SOME OTHER PROCEDURES THAT WE PROVIDE,
  • 00:04:53.110 --> 00:04:58.040
  • WHICH MIGHT, YOU KNOW, EXPLAIN WHAT YOU'RE TRYING TO GET AT.
  • 00:04:58.050 --> 00:05:03.200
  • -FEAR IS PROBABLY THE BIGGEST REASON WHY THESE GIRLS HAVE AN
  • 00:05:03.210 --> 00:05:07.180
  • ABORTION. A LOT OF THEM KNOW THAT IT'S WRONG, A LOT OF THEM
  • 00:05:07.190 --> 00:05:11.150
  • DON'T WANT TO DO IT, BUT THEY FEEL LIKE IT'S THEIR ONLY WAY OF
  • 00:05:11.160 --> 00:05:16.020
  • SURVIVING THEIR LIFE. I JUST CAN'T HAVE THIS BABY. THE GUY'S
  • 00:05:16.030 --> 00:05:19.190
  • NOT GONNA STAND BY ME. MY PARENTS WILL NOT STAND BY ME. MY
  • 00:05:19.200 --> 00:05:22.160
  • MOM'S TELLING ME TO HAVE IT. MY FRIEND HAS HAD ONE IN THE PAST
  • 00:05:22.170 --> 00:05:26.120
  • AND SHE SAYS JUST DO IT. YOU KNOW, JUST SUCK IT UP FOR THIS
  • 00:05:26.130 --> 00:05:30.160
  • HALF AN HOUR AND GO THROUGH THIS HORRIBLE THING AND YOUR LIFE
  • 00:05:30.170 --> 00:05:33.220
  • WILL BE BACK TO NORMAL. -CRISIS PREGNANCIES HAVE ALL KINDS OF
  • 00:05:33.230 --> 00:05:36.240
  • CIRCUMSTANCES THAT SURROUND THEM. PERHAPS THEY'RE YOUNG AND
  • 00:05:36.250 --> 00:05:39.160
  • UNMARRIED. PERHAPS THEY'RE IN AN ECONOMICALLY COMPRESSED
  • 00:05:39.170 --> 00:05:43.260
  • CIRCUMSTANCE, OR MAYBE EVEN A DEPRESSED CIRCUMSTANCE. IT MAY
  • 00:05:43.270 --> 00:05:49.190
  • BE THAT THEY HAVE FAMILY PRESSURES. THERE MAY BE A STIGMA
  • 00:05:49.200 --> 00:05:54.190
  • THAT IS SURE TO BE PLACED ON THEM IF THEY CARRY A CHILD TO
  • 00:05:54.200 --> 00:05:59.110
  • TERM. -BECAUSE SHE'S SCARED. BECAUSE SHE ALREADY HAS OTHER
  • 00:05:59.120 --> 00:06:01.160
  • CHILDREN. BECAUSE SHE'S POOR. BECAUSE SHE'S SINGLE. BECAUSE
  • 00:06:01.170 --> 00:06:05.060
  • THE GUY RAN OUT ON HER. BECAUSE SHE'S IN COLLEGE. BECAUSE SHE
  • 00:06:05.070 --> 00:06:09.160
  • WANTS TO FINISH HER EDUCATION. BECAUSE SHE JUST GOT A PROMOTION
  • 00:06:09.170 --> 00:06:13.150
  • AT WORK AND SHE DOESN'T WANT TO, YOU KNOW, SHE DOESN'T WANT A
  • 00:06:13.160 --> 00:06:17.150
  • BABY TO COME IN BETWEEN HER AND HER CAREER GOALS. BECAUSE SHE
  • 00:06:17.160 --> 00:06:21.040
  • DOESN'T WANT TO DISAPPOINT HER PARENTS. BECAUSE SHE WAS RAISED
  • 00:06:21.050 --> 00:06:23.190
  • IN THE CHURCH AND SHE DOESN'T WANT ANYBODY TO KNOW SHE WAS
  • 00:06:23.200 --> 00:06:26.150
  • HAVING SEX. -THEY'RE CONFUSED. THEY'RE HURT. THEY'RE SCARED.
  • 00:06:26.160 --> 00:06:29.280
  • AND ABORTION IS PRESENTED AS THE EASY ALTERNATIVE. THE PAINLESS
  • 00:06:29.290 --> 00:06:32.270
  • ALTERNATIVE TO ELIMINATE THE PROBLEM. -I DIDN'T WANT THE
  • 00:06:32.280 --> 00:06:36.030
  • BAGGAGE, IN ALL HONESTY, OF HAVING A CHILD WHILE I WAS IN
  • 00:06:36.040 --> 00:06:40.130
  • COLLEGE. BECAUSE I HAD A VISION FOR MY LIFE AND IT DIDN'T
  • 00:06:40.140 --> 00:06:44.030
  • INCLUDE CHILDREN. -I DON'T HAVE A CAR. I DON'T DRIVE. I HAVE NO
  • 00:06:44.040 --> 00:06:46.290
  • MONEY. YOU KNOW, SO YEAH, THE IDEAL THING WOULD BE TO HAVE AN
  • 00:06:47.000 --> 00:06:50.260
  • ABORTION. AND THAT'S WHAT I HAD 100 PERCENT DECIDED TO DO.
  • 00:06:50.270 --> 00:06:56.090
  • [MUSIC]
  • 00:06:56.100 --> 00:07:10.240
  • -IT WAS MY THIRD PREGNANCY IN MY SECOND MARRIAGE
  • 00:07:10.250 --> 00:07:13.050
  • WITH AN AGREEMENT THERE WOULD BE NO MORE CHILDREN. OF COURSE, I
  • 00:07:13.060 --> 00:07:15.140
  • NEVER EXPECTED TO GET PREGNANT. AND WHEN I FOUND MYSELF
  • 00:07:15.150 --> 00:07:18.260
  • PREGNANT, ROE VS. WADE HAD JUST HAPPENED; IT WAS ALL OF THE
  • 00:07:18.270 --> 00:07:21.050
  • NEWS. I CALLED MY DOCTOR. HE SAID NO PROBLEM. WE CAN TAKE
  • 00:07:21.060 --> 00:07:24.200
  • CARE OF IT. -I REMEMBER WALKING OUT FROM THE BATHROOM HOLDING
  • 00:07:24.210 --> 00:07:29.040
  • THE PREGNANCY TEST AND TELLING MY BOYFRIEND AT THE TIME I'M
  • 00:07:29.050 --> 00:07:32.070
  • PREGNANT. YOU KNOW, MY MIND WAS BLANK. I HAD NO IDEA WHAT TO DO.
  • 00:07:32.080 --> 00:07:38.110
  • AND SO I GUESS I WAS LOOKING TO HIM FOR SOME ANSWERS. AND, UM, I
  • 00:07:38.120 --> 00:07:44.090
  • JUST REMEMBER HE LOOKED AT ME AND HE SAID, WELL, THAT'S NOT A
  • 00:07:44.100 --> 00:07:47.060
  • PROBLEM. HE SAID I'VE TAKEN OTHER GIRLS TO ABORTION CLINICS.
  • 00:07:47.070 --> 00:07:53.090
  • WE'LL JUST TAKE YOU TO A CLINIC AND GET IT TAKEN CARE OF. AND,
  • 00:07:53.100 --> 00:07:56.160
  • YOU KNOW, I WOULD LIKE TO TELL YOU THAT I THOUGHT, WELL, WAIT A
  • 00:07:56.170 --> 00:08:00.170
  • MINUTE, YOU KNOW, LET'S TALK ABOUT THIS, BUT I DIDN'T. I JUST
  • 00:08:00.180 --> 00:08:03.200
  • SAID OKAY. -SAT THROUGH THE COUNSELING PART OF IT, AND, OF
  • 00:08:03.210 --> 00:08:09.190
  • COURSE, IT WAS VERY, YOU'RE TOO YOUNG, YOU KNOW, THIS IS
  • 00:08:09.200 --> 00:08:14.280
  • PROBABLY GOING TO BE YOUR BEST OPTION. I REMEMBER VERY, VERY
  • 00:08:14.290 --> 00:08:18.180
  • VIVIDLY THEM SAYING THAT. SO, I THOUGHT, OKAY. WE BORROWED MONEY
  • 00:08:18.190 --> 00:08:25.120
  • FROM HIS BEST FRIEND. AND AT THE TIME HE WAS, THAT FRIEND WAS THE
  • 00:08:25.130 --> 00:08:28.250
  • ONLY ONE WHO KNEW ABOUT IT. AND MADE THE APPOINTMENT, AND I WENT
  • 00:08:28.260 --> 00:08:32.060
  • BACK THE FOLLOWING WEEK. -MY MOM SAID TO ME, SHE SAYS IF YOU
  • 00:08:32.070 --> 00:08:36.000
  • HAVE THIS BABY, YOU HAVE TO DO IT BY YOURSELF. SHE SAYS OR YOU
  • 00:08:36.010 --> 00:08:39.290
  • CAN HAVE AN ABORTION. AND I THOUGHT TO MYSELF, WOW, OKAY. I
  • 00:08:40.000 --> 00:08:45.260
  • CAN HAVE AN ABORTION? WELL, LET'S DO THAT. I MEAN, I'M
  • 00:08:45.270 --> 00:08:49.000
  • FOURTEEN. I DON'T WANT TO BE PREGNANT AT HIGH SCHOOL. AND SO
  • 00:08:49.010 --> 00:08:52.210
  • IF IT'S COMING FROM MY MOM, SURELY, YOU KNOW, IT'S A GOOD
  • 00:08:52.220 --> 00:08:55.290
  • DECISION. SO, OKAY, YEAH, LET'S DO THAT. -A FRIEND CAME RUNNING
  • 00:08:56.000 --> 00:08:58.260
  • IN AND HE SAID, JONESY, YOUR GIRLFRIEND'S ON THE PHONE. SHE'S
  • 00:08:58.270 --> 00:09:02.020
  • CRYING. SO, I RAN OUT, I ANSWERED THE PHONE AND SHE JUST
  • 00:09:02.030 --> 00:09:05.170
  • KEPT SAYING OVER AND OVER AND OVER AGAIN, I'M SORRY, I'M
  • 00:09:05.180 --> 00:09:08.110
  • SORRY, I'M SORRY. IT WASN'T ME. AND THEN HER FATHER SAID OVER
  • 00:09:08.120 --> 00:09:12.160
  • THE OTHER LINE, JASON, WE KNOW YOUR SECRET. AND YOUR SECRETS
  • 00:09:12.170 --> 00:09:15.160
  • GONE. WE TOOK KATIE TO GET AN ABORTION. [MUSIC] -IN A

  • LANDMARK RULING, THE SUPREME COURT TODAY LEGALIZED ABORTIONS.
  • 00:09:21.210 --> 00:09:25.210

  • DECISION TO END THE PREGNANCY DURING THE FIRST THREE MONTHS
  • 00:09:28.170 --> 00:09:31.200
  • BELONGS TO THE WOMAN AND HER DOCTOR, NOT THE GOVERNMENT.

  • -ONE OF THE THINGS THAT MOST AMERICANS THINK, AND THINK
  • 00:09:35.220 --> 00:09:39.180
  • WRONGLY, IS THAT ABORTION BEGAN WITH ROE VS. WADE. THE TRUTH IS,
  • 00:09:39.190 --> 00:09:45.280
  • IS THAT EVERY SINGLE CIVILIZATION THROUGHOUT ALL OF

  • 00:09:50.030 --> 00:09:54.120
  • MAJOR COMPONENT PART OF THE CULTURE, ABORTION. -I THINK
  • 00:09:54.130 --> 00:09:59.120
  • FROM THE VERY BEGINNING, I CAME IN A LARGE FAMILY. MY MOTHER
  • 00:09:59.130 --> 00:10:04.160
  • DIED YOUNG, ELEVEN CHILDREN. IT MADE AN IMPRESSION ON ME AS A
  • 00:10:04.170 --> 00:10:08.150
  • CHILD. I WAS A TRAINED NURSE; WENT AMONG THE PEOPLE. I SAW
  • 00:10:08.160 --> 00:10:13.070
  • WOMEN WHO ASKED TO HAVE SOME MEANS WHEREBY THEY WOULDN'T HAVE
  • 00:10:13.080 --> 00:10:18.200
  • TO HAVE ANOTHER PREGNANCY TOO EARLY AFTER THE LAST CHILD, LAST

  • ABORTION, WHICH MANY OF THEM HAD. SO THERE'S A NUMBER OF
  • 00:10:22.090 --> 00:10:26.220
  • THINGS THAT ARE ONE AFTER THE OTHER THAT REALLY MADE YOU FEEL
  • 00:10:26.230 --> 00:10:30.140
  • THAT YOU HAD TO DO SOMETHING. -ACCORDING TO NEW YORK HEALTH
  • 00:10:30.150 --> 00:10:32.250
  • DEPARTMENT STATISTICS, WE NOW KNOW THAT THERE ARE MORE
  • 00:10:32.260 --> 00:10:35.250
  • AFRICAN-AMERICAN BABIES THAT ARE ABORTED IN NEW YORK THAN
  • 00:10:35.260 --> 00:10:39.120
  • ACTUALLY BORN ALIVE. -OF COURSE, THE LACK OF ACCESS FOR
  • 00:10:39.130 --> 00:10:42.060
  • AFRICAN-AMERICAN WOMEN, IN PARTICULAR TO BASIC PREVENTIVE
  • 00:10:42.070 --> 00:10:46.070
  • HEALTH CARE, INCLUDING FAMILY PLANNING, IS A HUGE PROBLEM IN
  • 00:10:46.080 --> 00:10:48.250
  • THIS COUNTRY AS WELL. -IT IS. I DON'T WANT TO SPEND, AND I AGREE
  • 00:10:48.260 --> 00:10:51.100
  • WITH YOU, THAT'S AS AFOREMENTIONED TIME WITH PLACES
  • 00:10:51.110 --> 00:10:53.230
  • THAT WE'VE SERVED AND WORKED IN, BUT IT DOES CONCERN ME THAT
  • 00:10:53.240 --> 00:10:57.280
  • THREE TIMES THE AFRICAN-AMERICAN POPULATION IS 13 PERCENT, YET
  • 00:10:57.290 --> 00:11:01.120
  • THEY'RE BEING ABORTED AT THREE TIMES PERCENT OF THE POPULATION
  • 00:11:01.130 --> 00:11:03.260
  • AT 35. PERCENT. -AT THE END OF THE 19TH CENTURY, THE BEGINNING
  • 00:11:03.270 --> 00:11:08.030
  • OF THE 20TH CENTURY, THERE WERE A NUMBER OF REVOLUTIONARY
  • 00:11:08.040 --> 00:11:11.280
  • FIGURES WHO WANTED TO REMAKE THE WORLD AS A KIND OF REVOLUTIONARY
  • 00:11:11.290 --> 00:11:17.020
  • CHALLENGE TO REMAKE IT IN A KIND OF PSEUDO SCIENTIFIC FASHION.
  • 00:11:17.030 --> 00:11:23.100
  • THEY WANTED TO USHER IN TOMORROW LAND. -PLANNED PARENTHOOD AND
  • 00:11:23.110 --> 00:11:27.150
  • MARGARET SANGER, WHO WAS THE FOUNDER OF THAT ORGANIZATION,
  • 00:11:27.160 --> 00:11:31.270
  • WERE EUGENICISTS. AND EUGENICISTS ARE NOT KILLING
  • 00:11:31.280 --> 00:11:35.040
  • BABIES BECAUSE OF SOME POLITICAL ISSUE. THEY ARE ON A MISSION TO
  • 00:11:35.050 --> 00:11:40.160
  • PURIFY. -PLANNED PARENTHOOD BEGAN AS A EUGENICS MOVEMENT.
  • 00:11:40.170 --> 00:11:44.080
  • THIS WAS TO CREATE THE SUPERIOR RACE AND THE TARGET OF PLANNED
  • 00:11:44.090 --> 00:11:47.080
  • PARENTHOOD WERE THOSE THAT THEY DEEMED TO BE LESS DESIRABLE. AND
  • 00:11:47.090 --> 00:11:50.050
  • THEY VIEWED THE MINORITIES IN OUR COMMUNITIES AS THE LEAST
  • 00:11:50.060 --> 00:11:54.020
  • DESIRABLE. -SHE BELIEVED THAT SEXUALITY IS A POWERFUL ENGINE
  • 00:11:54.030 --> 00:12:00.030
  • TO DRIVE SOCIAL CHANGE. AND SO SHE SOUGHT TO USHER IN THIS
  • 00:12:00.040 --> 00:12:06.000
  • REVOLUTIONARY NEW AGE STARTING WITH HUMAN SEXUALITY, AND DO IT
  • 00:12:06.010 --> 00:12:12.130
  • BY SCIENTIFIC MEANS BY ELIMINATING UNWANTED PEOPLE
  • 00:12:12.140 --> 00:12:15.180
  • GROUPS. WHAT SHE CALLED HUMAN WEEDS. AND THE HUMAN WEEDS WERE,
  • 00:12:15.190 --> 00:12:20.210
  • SPECIFICALLY, IDENTIFIED AS BLACKS, HISPANICS, EASTERN
  • 00:12:20.220 --> 00:12:26.290
  • EUROPEANS, SLAVS. SHE BELIEVED THAT THESE WERE SORT OF LOWER ON
  • 00:12:27.000 --> 00:12:32.200
  • THE EVOLUTIONARY CHAIN. AND SO TO BRING ABOUT THIS NEW AGE OF A
  • 00:12:32.210 --> 00:12:39.210
  • RACE OF THOROUGHBREDS, AS SHE CALLED THEM, YOU HAD TO
  • 00:12:39.220 --> 00:12:43.070
  • ELIMINATE THE BAD GENE STOCKS OUT OF THE HUMAN GENE POOL.
  • 00:12:43.080 --> 00:12:47.200
  • WELL, ABORTION, BIRTH CONTROL, THOSE KINDS OF THINGS REALLY
  • 00:12:47.210 --> 00:12:50.140
  • EMERGED OUT OF THAT IDEOLOGY. IT WASN'T MEDICINE. IT WASN'T TO
  • 00:12:50.150 --> 00:12:56.120
  • HELP WOMEN. IT WASN'T TO GIVE FREEDOM OF CHOICE. IT WAS REALLY
  • 00:12:56.130 --> 00:13:00.070
  • HOW DO WE RESHAPE SOCIETY? -PLANNED PARENTHOOD HAD A
  • 00:13:00.080 --> 00:13:05.160
  • HISTORY, ACCORDING TO ITS FOUNDER, MARGARET SANGER, OF
  • 00:13:05.170 --> 00:13:09.150
  • TARGETING NEGRO LEADERS. AND SHE SAID NEGROES ARE LIKE WEEDS WHO
  • 00:13:09.160 --> 00:13:14.060
  • NEED TO BE EXTERMINATED. WE DON'T WANT THAT WORD TO GET OUT,
  • 00:13:14.070 --> 00:13:17.270
  • SO WHAT WE NEED TO DO IS TO CULTIVATE SOME OF THEIR LEADERS,
  • 00:13:17.280 --> 00:13:20.220
  • GET THEM ON OUR SIDE, HAVE THEM THINK THAT WE WANT TO HELP THEM.
  • 00:13:20.230 --> 00:13:23.290
  • THIS IS HOW PLANNED PARENTHOOD WENT AFTER AFRICAN-AMERICAN
  • 00:13:24.000 --> 00:13:28.220
  • LEADERS. THEY STILL DO IT TODAY. -THE EUGENICS MOVEMENT IS DEAD.
  • 00:13:28.230 --> 00:13:33.070
  • THEY DON'T CALL IT EUGENICS ANYMORE. PLANNED PARENTHOOD
  • 00:13:33.080 --> 00:13:34.290
  • DOESN'T USE THE WORD EUGENICS. BUT, THE FACT OF THE MATTER IS,
  • 00:13:35.000 --> 00:13:38.120
  • THE RESULT THAT THEY'RE GETTING IS EXACTLY THE SAME. IT'S THE
  • 00:13:38.130 --> 00:13:41.040
  • ELIMINATION OF A RACE. WHERE ARE THESE ABORTIONS TAKING PLACE?
  • 00:13:41.050 --> 00:13:44.170
  • MINORITY COMMUNITIES. -FOLKS, AS WE GO INTO A BREAK, LET ME
  • 00:13:44.180 --> 00:13:48.070
  • JUST ASK YOU TO PRAY FOR THE AMERICAN CENTER FOR LAW AND
  • 00:13:48.080 --> 00:13:50.140
  • JUSTICE, FOR OUR ATTORNEYS, FOR OUR GOVERNMENT AFFAIRS TEAM, FOR
  • 00:13:50.150 --> 00:13:53.200

  • IMPORTANT AT THE ACLJ. WE NEED YOUR PRAYERS VERY IMPORTANT.
  • 00:14:20.030 --> 00:14:24.130

  • [MUSIC]
  • 00:14:27.220 --> 00:14:34.290
  • -I WENT TO TEXAS A&M UNIVERSITY AND MET A WOMAN THERE
  • 00:14:35.000 --> 00:14:39.050
  • WHO WAS WITH PLANNED PARENTHOOD. SHE WAS TRYING TO RECRUIT
  • 00:14:39.060 --> 00:14:42.060
  • VOLUNTEERS, STUDENT VOLUNTEERS, BUT ALSO, CERTAINLY, TRYING TO
  • 00:14:42.070 --> 00:14:47.270
  • TALK ABOUT SERVICES TO RECRUIT PATIENTS AS WELL. YOU KNOW, I
  • 00:14:47.280 --> 00:14:52.230
  • IMMEDIATELY WAS SORT OF DRAWN TO HER BOOTH BECAUSE IT WAS
  • 00:14:52.240 --> 00:14:57.030
  • SATURATED IN HOT PINK AND THAT'S MY FAVORITE COLOR. AND SO, I
  • 00:14:57.040 --> 00:15:02.080
  • WENT OVER TO HER, SHE ASKED ME WHAT I KNEW ABOUT PLANNED
  • 00:15:02.090 --> 00:15:04.150
  • PARENTHOOD. I TOLD HER I KNEW NOTHING. AND I THINK, FOR HER,
  • 00:15:04.160 --> 00:15:08.290
  • THAT'S PROBABLY LIKE-JACKPOT! YOU KNOW? SHE DOESN'T KNOW
  • 00:15:09.000 --> 00:15:11.270
  • ANYTHING ABOUT OUR ORGANIZATION SO I CAN SORT OF SELL HER ALL OF
  • 00:15:11.280 --> 00:15:16.010
  • OUR TALKING POINTS. AND SHE STARTED TELLING ME ABOUT ALL THE
  • 00:15:16.020 --> 00:15:20.030
  • WONDERFUL WORK THAT PLANNED PARENTHOOD DOES, AND HOW, YOU
  • 00:15:20.040 --> 00:15:24.080
  • KNOW, LOW-INCOME WOMEN WOULD HAVE NOWHERE ELSE TO GO FOR
  • 00:15:24.090 --> 00:15:26.240
  • HEALTH CARE IF IT WASN'T FOR PLANNED PARENTHOOD. AND SHE DID
  • 00:15:26.250 --> 00:15:30.180
  • TELL ME THAT THEY DID ABORTIONS, BUT SHE SAID IT WAS JUST SORT OF
  • 00:15:30.190 --> 00:15:33.120
  • THIS NECESSARY EVIL, AND IT WAS JUST A VERY SMALL PERCENTAGE,
  • 00:15:33.130 --> 00:15:37.180
  • JUST NOT VERY MANY ABORTIONS EVERY YEAR. AND SO I JUST SORT
  • 00:15:37.190 --> 00:15:40.240
  • OF BOUGHT IT AND STARTED VOLUNTEERING WITH THE
  • 00:15:40.250 --> 00:15:44.000
  • ORGANIZATION AS A STUDENT, AND REALLY BELIEVED THAT I WAS DOING
  • 00:15:44.010 --> 00:15:49.110
  • THE RIGHT THING. I REALLY BELIEVED THAT I WAS HELPING
  • 00:15:49.120 --> 00:15:51.200
  • WOMEN. -YOU HAD A STATEMENT THAT YOU MADE THAT QUALITY,
  • 00:15:51.210 --> 00:15:57.030
  • AFFORDABLE HEALTH CARE IS YOUR ENTIRE MISSION, AND YOU MADE
  • 00:15:57.040 --> 00:16:02.070
  • THAT STATEMENT. I ACTUALLY WROTE IT DOWN WHEN YOU MADE IT. WHY
  • 00:16:02.080 --> 00:16:05.160
  • WOULD YOU NOT MAKE AN EXECUTIVE DECISION THEN TO TEMPORARILY
  • 00:16:05.170 --> 00:16:08.290
  • DISCONTINUE YOUR ABORTION SERVICES, WHICH ONLY REPRESENTS,
  • 00:16:09.000 --> 00:16:12.210
  • BY YOUR TESTIMONY, 3 PERCENT OF THE SERVICES THAT YOU PROVIDE
  • 00:16:12.220 --> 00:16:16.230
  • AND CONTINUE PROVIDING WHAT YOU CONSIDER TO BE YOUR ENTIRE
  • 00:16:16.240 --> 00:16:21.060
  • MISSION OF 97 PERCENT OF THE SERVICES PROVIDED? -WELL,
  • 00:16:21.070 --> 00:16:26.100
  • BECAUSE ABORTION IS A LEGAL SERVICE IN AMERICA. AND WE THINK
  • 00:16:26.110 --> 00:16:29.200
  • IT'S IMPORTANT THAT WOMEN, YOU QUOTED ME AS SAYING QUALITY,
  • 00:16:29.210 --> 00:16:33.020
  • AFFORDABLE HEALTH CARE, AND THAT INCLUDES ACCESS TO QUALITY AND
  • 00:16:33.030 --> 00:16:36.120
  • AFFORDABLE ABORTION SERVICES AS WELL. -BUT YOU ACKNOWLEDGE
  • 00:16:36.130 --> 00:16:40.250
  • THAT, DO YOU SAY ABORTION IS HEALTHCARE? DO YOU CONSIDER THAT
  • 00:16:40.260 --> 00:16:44.080
  • IS HEALTH CARE? -YES, IT'S A HEALTH CARE SERVICE FOR WOMEN.
  • 00:16:44.090 --> 00:16:46.020
  • IN FACT, 3 IN 10 WOMEN IN THIS COUNTRY HAVE ACCESSED AN
  • 00:16:46.030 --> 00:16:49.150
  • ABORTION AT SOME POINT. -SO YOU DEFINE HEALTHCARE, ABORTION, AS
  • 00:16:49.160 --> 00:16:52.170
  • HEALTHCARE? -IT ABSOLUTELY IS PART OF WOMEN'S HEALTHCARE AND
  • 00:16:52.180 --> 00:16:55.170
  • WOMEN WILL TELL, I THINK, WOMEN WOULD AGREE. -PLANNED
  • 00:16:55.180 --> 00:16:59.090
  • PARENTHOOD, FOR THE MOST PART, FOR MOST WOMEN, IS SYNONYMOUS
  • 00:16:59.100 --> 00:17:02.180
  • WITH ABORTION. SO WHEN WOMEN CAME IN, EVEN IF THEY SAID THEY
  • 00:17:02.190 --> 00:17:06.060
  • WERE THERE FOR OPTIONS, COUNSELING, THEY GENERALLY WERE
  • 00:17:06.070 --> 00:17:09.250
  • THERE JUST TO GET INFORMATION ABOUT ABORTION. -THEY CALL IT
  • 00:17:09.260 --> 00:17:12.120
  • REPRODUCTIVE CARE. THEY'LL CALL IT HEALTH CARE. THESE ARE WORDS
  • 00:17:12.130 --> 00:17:15.080
  • THAT ARE UTILIZED TO GIVE IT A MORE PALATABLE SOUND SO THAT IN
  • 00:17:15.090 --> 00:17:18.170
  • THE BODY POLITIC, WHEN THE NEGOTIATIONS GO ON, THEY'RE
  • 00:17:18.180 --> 00:17:21.030
  • TALKING ABOUT REPRODUCTIVE RIGHTS OR WOMEN'S HEALTH ISSUES.
  • 00:17:21.040 --> 00:17:24.130
  • WHEN IN REALITY WHAT WE'RE TALKING ABOUT, AND LOOK AT THE
  • 00:17:24.140 --> 00:17:27.060
  • PROCEDURE ITSELF, WE'RE TALKING ABOUT THE DESTRUCTION OF AN
  • 00:17:27.070 --> 00:17:30.070
  • UNBORN CHILD. -I SAID TO PLANNED PARENTHOOD, I'M HAVING
  • 00:17:30.080 --> 00:17:33.220
  • PROBLEMS. AND THEY SAID, WELL, YOU ARE PREGNANT. LET'S DO A
  • 00:17:33.230 --> 00:17:37.050
  • PREGNANCY TEST. AND THEY SAYS, YOU ARE PREGNANT, BUT YOU DON'T
  • 00:17:37.060 --> 00:17:39.180
  • NEED A BABY WITH EVERYTHING THAT'S GOING ON IN YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:17:39.190 --> 00:17:42.190
  • WE'LL DO SOMETHING CALLED A SAFE ABORTION. -I WENT INTO PLANNED
  • 00:17:42.200 --> 00:17:47.020
  • PARENTHOOD AND THEY TOLD ME AT THAT TIME IT'S JUST TISSUE. IT'S
  • 00:17:47.030 --> 00:17:50.080
  • LIKE HAVING YOUR TONSILS REMOVED. AND THEY ACTUALLY PAID
  • 00:17:50.090 --> 00:17:53.270
  • FOR ME. I WAS LIVING IN COLORADO AT THE TIME AND THAT WAS BEFORE
  • 00:17:53.280 --> 00:17:57.180
  • ABORTION WAS LEGAL THERE. AND THEY FLEW ME, BOUGHT A PLANE
  • 00:17:57.190 --> 00:18:00.080
  • TICKET, FLEW ME TO CALIFORNIA TO HAVE AN ABORTION. -WE HAD A
  • 00:18:00.090 --> 00:18:03.280
  • SCRIPT DESIGNED TO OVERCOME EVERY OBJECTION, FOR THAT'S WHAT
  • 00:18:03.290 --> 00:18:06.150
  • SALES IS, IF YOU OVERCOME THE OBJECTION, YOU GET THE ORDER.
  • 00:18:06.160 --> 00:18:08.270
  • AND IN THIS CASE, THIS IS THE ABORTION. AND WE LED HER THROUGH
  • 00:18:08.280 --> 00:18:12.260
  • THIS SCRIPT. AND SHE WAS SCARED, SO SHE WAS EASILY LED. -IT'S
  • 00:18:12.270 --> 00:18:17.030
  • REALLY A BUSINESS BUILT ON A MODEL OF DRAWING WOMEN IN FOR
  • 00:18:17.040 --> 00:18:23.120
  • ABORTIONS. -I DIDN'T KNOW. I WASN'T GIVEN ANY TYPE OF
  • 00:18:23.130 --> 00:18:26.290
  • INFORMATION AS FAR AS WHAT IT WAS. I WAS TOLD IT WAS JUST A
  • 00:18:27.000 --> 00:18:32.170
  • BLOB OF TISSUE. I WASN'T GIVEN ANY CHOICES AS FAR AS
  • 00:18:32.180 --> 00:18:36.100
  • ULTRASOUNDS OR TOLD ME TO, WHY DON'T YOU GO HOME, THINK ABOUT
  • 00:18:36.110 --> 00:18:40.060
  • IT, AND THEN COME BACK. NOTHING LIKE THAT. THERE WAS NOTHING
  • 00:18:40.070 --> 00:18:42.110
  • POSITIVE. -SHE WOULD CONFESS I THINK I MAY BE PREGNANT. WE CAN
  • 00:18:42.120 --> 00:18:46.270
  • TAKE CARE OF THIS. NO ONE NEEDS TO KNOW. AND THEN THE FIRST
  • 00:18:46.280 --> 00:18:49.220
  • QUESTION IS WHAT'S THE FIRST DAY OF YOUR LAST NORMAL PERIOD. SHE
  • 00:18:49.230 --> 00:18:53.000
  • FIGURES THAT DATE AND GIVES IT TO THE SO-CALLED COUNSELOR,
  • 00:18:53.010 --> 00:18:55.160
  • WHO'S REALLY JUST KIND OF A TELEMARKETER OVER THE TELEPHONE,
  • 00:18:55.170 --> 00:18:58.140
  • BECAUSE THAT'S WHAT THEY WERE TRAINED, TO TELEMARKET. AND SO
  • 00:18:58.150 --> 00:19:02.100
  • SHE GIVES HER THE DATE AND SHE SAYS YOU'RE EIGHT WEEKS
  • 00:19:02.110 --> 00:19:04.260
  • PREGNANT. NOW WHAT DID SHE DO? SHE CONFIRMED HER PREGNANCY OVER
  • 00:19:04.270 --> 00:19:08.080
  • THE TELEPHONE. NOW YOU'D THINK SHE'D SAY, STOP, HOW CAN YOU
  • 00:19:08.090 --> 00:19:11.150
  • TELL ME THAT I'M PREGNANT? I MEAN, YOU DON'T EVEN KNOW ME,
  • 00:19:11.160 --> 00:19:14.260
  • YOU'VE NOT DONE A PREGNANCY TEST. BUT NO, THIS IS THE
  • 00:19:14.270 --> 00:19:17.140
  • PREGNANCY EXPERT. THE SEED IS PLANTED, THE FEAR CONFIRMED. AND
  • 00:19:17.150 --> 00:19:20.180
  • THEN THE NEXT QUESTION IS, IS THIS GOOD NEWS OR BAD NEWS? AND
  • 00:19:20.190 --> 00:19:23.250
  • SHE SAYS IT'S BAD NEWS. OF COURSE, IT'S BAD NEWS. SHE
  • 00:19:23.260 --> 00:19:26.180
  • WOULDN'T BE CALLING AN ABORTION CLINIC IF IT WERE GOOD NEWS.
  • 00:19:26.190 --> 00:19:29.130
  • -WE WOULD TALK TO THEM ABOUT GESTATIONAL DATES AND WHAT SORT
  • 00:19:29.140 --> 00:19:33.060
  • OF ABORTION THEY COULD, THEY COULD DO, WHETHER IT WAS THE
  • 00:19:33.070 --> 00:19:37.140
  • MEDICATION ABORTION OR THE SURGICAL ABORTION DEPENDING ON
  • 00:19:37.150 --> 00:19:40.020
  • HOW FAR ALONG THEY WERE. WE WOULD TALK BRIEFLY ABOUT WHAT
  • 00:19:40.030 --> 00:19:44.280
  • THE PROCEDURE WOULD ACTUALLY BE LIKE. I REMEMBER GETTING A
  • 00:19:44.290 --> 00:19:48.120
  • DIRECTIVE FROM MY SUPERVISOR, YOU KNOW, THAT WE DIDN'T WANT TO
  • 00:19:48.130 --> 00:19:52.170
  • GIVE THEM TOO MUCH INFORMATION ABOUT THE ABORTION PROCEDURE. WE
  • 00:19:52.180 --> 00:19:55.020
  • DIDN'T WANT TO TALK TO THEM ABOUT RISKS ASSOCIATED WITH THE
  • 00:19:55.030 --> 00:19:58.270
  • PROCEDURE BECAUSE WE DIDN'T WANT TO SCARE THEM OUT OF HAVING AN
  • 00:19:58.280 --> 00:20:02.240
  • ABORTION.

  • BENCH SEATING AROUND THREE WALLS. THERE WERE ABOUT 8-9
  • 00:20:14.230 --> 00:20:19.070

  • CHANGING ROOM WITH GOWNS AND A BIG SILVER SAFETY PIN WITH A
  • 00:20:22.190 --> 00:20:30.210
  • NUMBER ON IT. AND SO I WAS A NUMBER. AND I THINK I WAS 514 OR
  • 00:20:30.220 --> 00:20:35.100
  • SOMETHING LIKE THAT. I JUST, THOSE NUMBERS STAND OUT. AND
  • 00:20:35.110 --> 00:20:38.060
  • WHILE YOU'RE WAITING FOR YOUR NUMBER TO BE CALLED, YOU KIND OF
  • 00:20:38.070 --> 00:20:42.000
  • MAKE YOUR WAY DOWN THE BENCH LINE AND YOUR VITALS ARE TAKEN.
  • 00:20:42.010 --> 00:20:46.120
  • AND THE NURSE, OR WHOEVER SHE IS, YOU KNOW, TELLS YOU THIS IS
  • 00:20:46.130 --> 00:20:51.070
  • WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT, THIS IS THE KIND OF PROCEDURE YOU'RE GOING
  • 00:20:51.080 --> 00:20:53.070
  • TO HAVE. I HAD THE VACUUM PROCEDURE. AND THAT'S IT. AND
  • 00:20:53.080 --> 00:20:58.200
  • IT'S JUST KIND OF REAL, VERY CLINICAL, YOU KNOW, JUST VERY
  • 00:20:58.210 --> 00:21:01.150
  • MATTER-OF-FACT, LIKE, THIS IS WHAT YOU'RE DOING, THIS IS
  • 00:21:01.160 --> 00:21:03.170
  • WHAT'S GONNA HAPPEN, WAIT FOR YOUR NUMBER TO BE CALLED. AND SO
  • 00:21:03.180 --> 00:21:06.270
  • SOME OF THE GIRLS AROUND ME WE'RE REALLY QUIET. I WAS VERY,
  • 00:21:06.280 --> 00:21:11.060
  • VERY QUIET. SOME WERE CRYING. SOME WERE JUST GABBING WITH EACH
  • 00:21:11.070 --> 00:21:15.230
  • OTHER LIKE IT WAS, YOU KNOW, NO BIG DEAL. -I STILL REMEMBER
  • 00:21:15.240 --> 00:21:19.070
  • LYING ON A STEEL COLD TABLE AND STARING UP AT THAT BRIGHT LIGHT
  • 00:21:19.080 --> 00:21:24.050
  • AND COUNTING BACKWARDS FROM TEN. -THE ANESTHESIOLOGIST CAME IN
  • 00:21:24.060 --> 00:21:27.280
  • AND EXPLAINED WHAT HE'D BE DOING. AND RIGHT AS HE WAS
  • 00:21:27.290 --> 00:21:31.200
  • PUTTING MY IV IN, THE DOCTOR COMES IN, AND HE JUST SAT AT THE
  • 00:21:31.210 --> 00:21:36.260
  • END OF THE TABLE AND HE NEVER SAID A WORD TO ME. HE JUST SAT
  • 00:21:36.270 --> 00:21:39.180
  • AND HE LOOKED AT ME. AND HE'S FLIPPING THROUGH A BOOK, AND
  • 00:21:39.190 --> 00:21:43.260
  • HE'S MARKING OFF THINGS AND FLIPPING THROUGH PAGES AND
  • 00:21:43.270 --> 00:21:47.140
  • MARKING OFF. AND THAT WAS THAT. HE NEVER HAD ANY INTERACTION
  • 00:21:47.150 --> 00:21:50.040
  • WITH ME. AND THE ANESTHESIOLOGIST FINALLY JUST
  • 00:21:50.050 --> 00:21:54.090
  • SAID ALL RIGHT, COUNT FROM 10, BEFORE YOU KNOW IT, IT WILL ALL
  • 00:21:54.100 --> 00:21:56.240
  • BE OVER. -IT WAS VERY, VERY PAINFUL. I'VE NEVER FELT PAIN
  • 00:21:56.250 --> 00:22:01.140
  • LIKE THAT IN MY LIFE. THEY DIDN'T EVEN, I DON'T EVEN REALLY
  • 00:22:01.150 --> 00:22:04.070
  • REMEMBER THEM TALKING TO ME AT ALL DURING THE PROCEDURE. I
  • 00:22:04.080 --> 00:22:06.280
  • REMEMBER THE NURSE GIVING ME SEDATION. AND SHE JUST KEPT
  • 00:22:06.290 --> 00:22:11.070
  • RUBBING MY ARM, SHUSHING ME, TELLING ME TO BE QUIET. -AND I
  • 00:22:11.080 --> 00:22:15.060
  • REMEMBER LOOKING AROUND AND SEEING ABOUT 3-4 OTHER GIRLS
  • 00:22:15.070 --> 00:22:17.280
  • WAKING UP ALSO. AND I GOT DRESSED, FEELING VERY GROGGY,
  • 00:22:17.290 --> 00:22:24.000
  • AND I WENT INTO THE OTHER ROOM. -AND I JUST REMEMBER WAKING UP
  • 00:22:24.010 --> 00:22:27.090
  • AND LOOKING DOWN THE ROW AND ALL THESE GIRLS WERE JUST LEANED
  • 00:22:27.100 --> 00:22:30.200
  • OVER, ASLEEP. AND ONCE THEY SAW ME SORT OF STIRRING, WAKING UP,
  • 00:22:30.210 --> 00:22:38.230
  • THEY CAME OVER, THEY HAD A LITTLE BAG WITH MY CLOTHES IN
  • 00:22:38.240 --> 00:22:43.200
  • IT. AND THEY JUST STOOD ME UP RIGHT THERE IN FRONT OF
  • 00:22:43.210 --> 00:22:47.070
  • EVERYBODY, GOT ME DRESSED RIGHT IN THE MIDDLE OF THE ROOM. AND
  • 00:22:47.080 --> 00:22:52.140
  • THEN GAVE ME A GLASS OF WATER AND SOME CRACKERS, AND SENT ME
  • 00:22:52.150 --> 00:22:58.260
  • OUT THE DOOR. AND I WENT AND SAT ON THE CURB AND WAITED FOR MY
  • 00:22:58.270 --> 00:23:03.060
  • BOYFRIEND TO COME. -WHEN I STOOD UP THEIR SUGAR AND COOKIES
  • 00:23:03.070 --> 00:23:06.250
  • DIDN'T WORK AND I FAINTED. AND I THINK I FAINTED BECAUSE OF THE
  • 00:23:06.260 --> 00:23:13.170
  • HORROR OF WHAT I HAD DONE. I REALIZED THAT I WAS MISSING A
  • 00:23:13.180 --> 00:23:17.290
  • LARGE PART OF ME AND IT WAS TOO MUCH FOR ME TO TAKE. -I WOKE UP
  • 00:23:18.000 --> 00:23:22.250
  • CRYING. AND I WAS ACTUALLY ENDED UP BEING PRETTY VOLATILE AND GOT
  • 00:23:22.260 --> 00:23:28.070
  • A LITTLE PHYSICAL WITH THE NURSE THAT TRIED TO COME IN TIME WITH
  • 00:23:28.080 --> 00:23:33.090
  • THE PUKE BUCKET BECAUSE I WAS GETTING SICK. AND I SLAPPED HER
  • 00:23:33.100 --> 00:23:37.200
  • ACROSS THE FACE. AND I REMEMBER BECAUSE I DIDN'T WANT ANYONE TO
  • 00:23:37.210 --> 00:23:41.010
  • SEE ME. I DIDN'T, I DIDN'T WANT ANYONE TO KNOW. SO, ANYWAY, I
  • 00:23:41.020 --> 00:23:50.180
  • WAS PRETTY PHYSICAL SO THEY TOOK ME AND THEY PUT ME IN MY OWN
  • 00:23:50.190 --> 00:23:53.150
  • LITTLE, PRIVATE ROOM. AND ONE OF THE NURSES SAT IN THE CORNER AND
  • 00:23:53.160 --> 00:23:58.130
  • JUST LET ME CRY IT OUT. AND SO I SAT ON A TABLE AND I JUST,
  • 00:23:58.140 --> 00:24:01.250
  • LITERALLY, ROCKED BACK AND FORTH. AND I THINK, PROBABLY, A
  • 00:24:01.260 --> 00:24:06.160
  • COUPLE OF HOURS PASSED AND I JUST FINALLY GOT TOO TIRED. AND
  • 00:24:06.170 --> 00:24:11.180
  • THEY LET ME GO. AND INTERESTINGLY ENOUGH, THEY DON'T
  • 00:24:11.190 --> 00:24:15.280
  • LET YOU WALK BACK OUT THE FRONT. THERE'S A PRIVATE EXIT. AND
  • 00:24:15.290 --> 00:24:20.230
  • LATER ON IN LIFE I WONDERED HAD I SEEN SOMEONE LIKE ME, IN THE
  • 00:24:20.240 --> 00:24:27.030
  • STATE I WAS IN AT THAT MOMENT AFTER THAT ABORTION, WALK OUT
  • 00:24:27.040 --> 00:24:30.040
  • BACK OUT THE FRONT CLINIC, MAYBE I WOULDN'T HAVE DONE IT. [MUSIC]
