After a 30-month investigative journalism study, the pro-life group Center for Medical Progress, released the first video of three in their findings from the study, which is entitled the Human Capital project. What the group uncovered was disturbing, to put it mildly, and the practices of Planned Parenthood were revealed to be highly illegal and inhumane.
Planned Parenthood, the group that Democrats fight tooth and nail for with the claim that it provides vital medical services (i.e. abortions, or the murder of babies) uses partial birth abortion to harvest organs and other tissue of the aborted babies in order to sell them.
Not only does Planned Parenthood use partial birth abortion to kill the babies, they do so strategically so as not to ruin the organs that are the most lucrative and requested. While noshing on a salad and drinking a glass of wine, Dr. Dr. Deborah Nucatola, the Senior Director of Medical Services at Planned Parenthood since 2009, casually explained these illegal and murderous practices.
According to federal law, the sale of body parts of aborted babies is illegal. Participation in the sale or purchase of human fetal tissue is felony punishable by up to 10 years in prison and a $500,000 fine. Despite this, Planned Parenthood operates a lucrative business, knowing they are breaking the law, to sell baby organs and tissue.
Planned Parenthood has an entire business operating under the knowledge and direction of their executives that harvests and sell fetal tissue and human body parts. They even have an online order form to give people the opportunity to illegally order aborted baby organs and tissue.
As undercover investigative journalists posed as buyers from a human biologics company, Dr. Nucatola, who trains Planned Parenthood doctors on abortion procedures and performs abortions herself in the Planned Parenthood Los Angeles office up to 24 weeks, explains how abortions are performed in order to drive their baby organ harvesting business and bring in the most money.
The undercover agents ask, “How much of a difference can that actually make, if you know kind of what’s expected, or what we need?” Dr. Nucatola coldly replies, “It makes a huge difference,” Nucatola replies. “I’d say a lot of people want liver. And for that reason, most providers will do this case under ultrasound guidance, so they’ll know where they’re putting their forceps. The kind of rate-limiting step of the procedure is calvarium. Calvarium—the head—is basically the biggest part.”
Her nonchalant and emotionless response continued as she explained how they strategically perform the abortion so as not to negatively impact the money they can make from harvesting the organs. She said, “We’ve been very good at getting heart, lung, liver, because we know that, so I’m not gonna crush that part, I’m gonna basically crush below, I’m gonna crush above, and I’m gonna see if I can get it all intact.”
As noted previously, Planned Parenthood’s top doctor explained how the head, the calvarium, is the most financially lucrative for them. In fact, keeping the baby’s head intact during the abortion is such a priority that they will often move the fetus around within the womb so that the baby is killed in a breech position.
Dr. Nucatola said, “And with the calvarium, in general, some people will actually try to change the presentation so that it’s not vertex,” she continues. “So if you do it starting from the breech presentation, there’s dilation that happens as the case goes on, and often, the last step, you can evacuate an intact calvarium at the end.”
The baby butchers at Planned Parenthood use ultrasound technology to help guide them in their murders so that they do not destroy the lucrative organs that they can sell in their organ harvesting business.
As she nonchalantly describes these horrific and illegal procedures, Dr. Nucatola also admits how they get around federal laws that make partial birth abortion and the selling of organs illegal. Quite simply, Planned Parenthood works behind closed doors to push the organ harvesting business. She said, “At the national office, we have a Litigation and Law Department which just really doesn’t want us to be the middle people for this issue right now. But I will tell you that behind closed doors these conversations are happening with the affiliates.”
To add even more damaging evidence to these illegal and disgusting practices by Planned Parenthood, their CEO Cecile Richards is seen in another clip praising the organ harvesting work of Dr. Nucatola. When Richards is informed about Dr. Nucatola’s fetal tissue (i.e. organ harvesting) work, he responded with praise stating, “Oh good. Great. She’s amazing.”
Live Action CEO Lila Rose, who has conducted her own hard-hitting investigative pieces of Planned Parenthood, responded to this expose with a demand that Congress immediate cease all taxpayer funding of Planned Parenthood. (emphasis mine)
This investigation by the Center for Medical Progress reveals the unimaginable horror that is Planned Parenthood. The exploitation of human life, the cover-up, and the black market profiteering by America’s largest abortion chain is not only egregious and heartbreaking, but exposes how the abortion giant is corrupt to the core – from the CEO, Cecile Richards, down to the local clinic. As Live Action has investigated through the years, Planned Parenthood’s barbaric practices reveal their contempt for rule of law and human life. This latest expose of Planned Parenthood’s trafficking of baby parts for profit should be the final nail in the coffin for the abortion giant. Congress must take immediate action to stop all taxpayer funding of Planned Parenthood and end the bankrolling of this horrific human rights abuser.
John Nolte, from Breitbart, offered the following thoughts which sums up these horrific acts by Planned Parenthood and the culpability of Democrats and the leftstream media in aiding and abetting these illegal and inhumane practices.
By successfully lobbying Democrats (including President Obama and Hillary Clinton) to keep partial birth legal, Planned Parenthood is able to harvest more profitable body parts. By successfully lobbying the mainstream media to not report on the horrors of late-term/partial-birth abortion, the issue is ignored and dismissed as the infanticide marches on.
Planned Parenthood is not just an evil enterprise. It has long been rumored that abortion mills like Planned Parenthood have been doing this using legal loopholes involving “site fees” and other loopholes. This allows the abortion provider to claim the tissue is being donated.
