Shocking new video: Planned Parenthood’s flagship US clinic involved in large-scale late-term “cadaver” trafficking for major profits

PPFA em Houston (Texas)The Center for Medical Progress has released the fifth video in its blockbuster investigation exposing Planned Parenthood’s baby parts trafficking scheme.

Today’s video takes us inside Planned Parenthood Houston, which, at 78,000 square feet, is the largest abortion clinic clinic in the Western Hemisphere.

First, recall Planned Parenthood CEO Cecile Richards told ABC’s George Stephanopoulos on July:

CR: … Planned Parenthood does not at all profit from fetal tissue donation, which is an important element of healthcare research in this country….

GS: You say that no Planned Parenthood affiliate has profited from fetal tissue.

CR: Correct. Correct.

GS: Do you know how many clinics harvest this tissue and how much money they receive?

CR: Very few. I mean, there’s only a handful of states where fetal tissue donation is happening….

GS: You said “a few.” What are we talking about?

CR: Less than five, less than five….

CR: There are no financial benefits to the clinics…. We look forward to the facts coming out….

Ok, then. This should make Richardson happy.
Today we learn:

  • PPH is aborting late-term babies on such a massive scale by a team of six abortionists that an order for 120 “samples” of “fetal cadavers” is received without blinking. #fetalcadavers
  • PPH is coordinating between its “research department” and abortionists to manipulate abortions to get the desired samples, although this can be impacted by “how cooperative the patient is during the procedure.”
  • PPH abortionists have been doing some of their own research #PPmadscientists
  • Some of the requested “fetal cadavers” are for experimentation with humanized mice. #humanizedmice (page 90 of the full transcript)

Today we also learn that without question this flagship of U.S. Planned Parenthood abortion clinics is involved in deceptive paperwork so as to be able to illegally “deviate from our standard… so there’s a higher chance” of getting an intact specimen, all for adding to PP’s bottom line.

Abortionists can “make that [intact fetal cadavers] happen.”

Planned Parenthood Golf Coast’s Director of Research Melissa Farrell admits that sometimes the abortion procedure can get “more complicated” so as to get required specimens, which requires the baby parts buyer to pay a higher fee. Women’s safety be damned.

Also, certain specimens cost more.  Which bring us back to the huge profit motive:

My department contributes so much to the bottom line of our organization here. Even though we’re one of the largest affiliates, our research department is the largest in the United Staes – larger than the affiliates combined….

Yeah and so if we alter our process, and we are able to obtain intact fetal cadavers, then we can make it part of the budget, that any dissections are this, and splitting the specimens into different shipments is this. It’s all just a matter of line items.

Finally… the babies. Like video #4, this video takes us into one of Planned Parenthood’s “procurement rooms.”

But here we see arms, legs, intestines, and other body parts of older babies, about 18-20 weeks gestation.

It’s heartbreaking. And the cavalier attitude of Planned Parenthood staff makes it that much worse.

The massive scale at which Houston PP collects intact tiny human cadavers, and participates itself in experimentation, really does remind one of the Nazi human experiments.

On that point, I’ve come to realize that these videos are comparable to when American soldiers first walked into the Jewish concentration camps to see the unimaginable horror. They had surely heard the rumors, and some knew for sure the camps existed.

But you don’t really know until you actually go in….

Yesterday, the U.S. Senate voted 53-46 to defund Planned Parenthood.

While the vote failed to reach the 60 threshold required to override a certain presidential veto, marking the first time in history that a majority of the Senate voted to defund the abortion behemoth. In 2011 the vote was 42-58. The shift is huge.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell voted “no” so as to preserve the opportunity to vote again later. Pro-life Senator Lindsey Graham didn’t vote. So the actual tally is really 55-45.

After today’s video release, those who voted against this measure are certain to look nothing short of despicably pathetic.

The Senate needs to vote again.

Planned Parenthood does absolutely nothing – zero, zilch, zip – to earn baby parts “reimbursements”

ginde

In a July 30 interview with Christianity Today, David Daleiden, leader of the Planned Parenthood-upending pro-life group Center for Medical Progress, made a direct point all four of his videos released to date have been leading up to:

Planned Parenthood’s understanding of that law is very clear. It is not legal in any way for people to be profiting from the sale of aborted baby parts. But that is exactly what Planned Parenthood does. And you can see it in our video evidence that we have released so far.

They set their price per specimen—which is per aborted baby or baby part. The amount of money they received for those body parts far exceeds any real or imagined costs they have in supplying them.

Planned Parenthood doesn’t do shipping or packaging—all of that is handled by the middleman biotech companies that they sell to. And those groups sent all of their own people in to handle all the processing of the specimens.

So Planned Parent does nothing, yet they still are receiving $50, $75, or $100 per specimen. So they are clearly selling fetal tissue for valuable consideration and for a profit - and that is very clearly against the law.

After an abortion, Planned Parenthood employees take individually ziplocked or bucketed aborted babies to their clinic’s “procurement room.”

From that point on, technicians sent from fetal tissue purchasing companies like StemExpress take over. One of StemExpress’s former employees, Holly O’Donnell, described her job in CMP video #3.

These technicians examine the dismembered or intact babies in a petri dish under a light and separate out ordered body parts, such as itemized in this email from StemExpress to O’Donnell and others, dated March 20, 2013. The screenshot below shows a request from that email for an intact (misspelled on form) calvarium – or complete head – of an 8+ week-old baby….

2015-08-02_0934

The more body parts they “procure,” the more money StemCell technicians earn. StemExpress outlines its bonus structure in this January 1, 2013, memo:

2015-08-02_0944 2015-08-02_0944b

StemExpress technicians handle all packaging and shipping, and StemExpress reimburses for any expenses involved with that. From the same linked memo above (“contractor” being technician)…

2015-08-02_0949

In video #2, Dr. Mary “Lamborghini” Gatter, Medical Director for Planned Parenthood Los Angeles and President of the Planned Parenthood Medical Director’s Council, corroborated the fact that no extra work or expense is required on the part of Planned Parenthood, in this case with the tissue procurement company Novogenix (beginning at 1:46 on the video)…

2015-08-02_1027

In actuality, it could be argued that Planned Parenthoods actually save money by “donating” baby parts, because they don’t have to pay for packaging and disposing of these aborted babies.

Yet, as Deborah Nucatola, Senior Director of Medical Services for Planned Parenthood Federation of America, indicated (and she should know, right?)…

BREAKING: Daleiden tells CNN StemExpress gets “fully intact fetuses,” i.e., potentially born alive

breakingOn CNN this morning, Center for Medical Progress leader David Daleiden explained exactly why StemExpress is seeking to block release of secretly recorded video from a meeting he had with its top executives in May:

In a meeting with their top leadership where their leadership admitted that they sometimes get fully intact fetuses shipped to their laboratory from the abortion clinics they work with, and that could be prima facie evidence of born alive infants. And so that’s why they’re trying to suppress that videotape and they’re very scared of it.

Oh. My. Goodness.

4th video on Planned Parenthood released: “Another boy!”

2015-07-30_0921

In the past 2-1/2 weeks we’ve seen Planned Parenthood high level abortionists discuss “crushing” babies over salad and wine,  “crunching” babies to get enough money for Lamborghinis, and profits to be made over a petri dish of baby parts.

But today’s is the most heart-rending, in my opinion. At the shocking conclusion of Center for Medical Progress’s video exposé #4, a medical assistant in the procurement room proudly announces the tiny, dissected baby in the petri dish in front of her is “another boy!” It’s the utterly depraved.

Bear in mind the babies analyzed in today’s video were 11.6 and 12 weeks old - on the outside edge of the first trimester. The heart, stomach, kidney, eyeballs, and even adrenal glands can be visualized. And the tiny little guy’s sex organ.

This video was recorded at the Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountains in Denver, with abortionist Savita Ginde, its Vice President and Medical Director.

Ginde and crew are as gross, calloused, and cold as we’ve seen the others to be, if not more so.

Conversation in the “procurement room”:

Ginde: It’s a baby. [Re: 11.6-weeker]

Buyer: Is that the heart?

Assistant: I think so, here’s the heart.

Ginde: Everyone’s trying to get in on it.

Assistant: My fingers will smush it if I try to get it out. The heart is right there….

Ginde: So do people want brain? What do they do with brain? [Re: 12 weeker]

Buyer: Yeah, so brain, what you can do is –

Ginde: Do people do stuff with eyeballs?

Buyer: Oh, yeah. Although eyeballs, they generally want more developed than this. Then the cal[varium, head], there was, first there was a brain in here –

Ginde: Blasted out?

Buyer: Yeah, it got blasted out with the water.

Ginde: Well, you know a lot of times, especially with the 2nd tris [trimester] is we won’t even put water, because it’s so big you can put your hand in there and just pick up the parts.

Buyer: Right, just pick it up.

Ginde: So I don’t think it would be as war-torn.

Buyer: “War-torn”? Oh, dear.

Ginde: Here’s some organs for you. They’re all attached. Here’s a stomach, kidney, heart… adrenal. I don’t know what else is in there – tiny.

Assistant: I don’t see the legs, do you see the legs?

Buyer: There you go, yep.

Assistant: And another boy!

327-its_a_boy_balloonAbout that horrendous final comment, Chris Crawford of the Susan B. Anthony List wrote in an email:

At our Gala, Senator Lindsey Graham talked about how the debate we find ourselves in is a debate about who we are as a country. And this last video shows the greatest contrast possible between our side and their side.

When my mother was pregnant with me, the doctor excitedly announced, “It’s a boy!” when they looked at the ultrasound.

When I was born (6 weeks early) people came to the hospital with balloons that said, “It’s a boy!”

“It’s a boy!” and “It’s a girl!” are exclamations that are shared at the most exciting, hopeful parts of the beginning of a new human person’s life.

And here in this video, we have a technician shuffling through the parts of an aborted baby. She moves his heart that has stopped beating, his lungs that will never take in air, and his legs that will never walk, and excitedly shouts “It’s a boy!”

It’s disturbing. It’s haunting. And I think this is the line that we have to draw between our two opposing movements, and between good and evil in our country, frankly.

A coalition of pro-life groups is organizing a national day of protest at Planned Parenthoods across the country on August 22, from 9-11 a.m. Please plan to join them.

Planned Parenthood hires same crisis management firm Komen hired to fend off PP

filepicker-8d2Z4LzRaa784mfivkW7_what_goes_around_comes_back_aroundWell, isn’t this rich.

Politico is reporting that Planned Parenthood has hired crisis management firm SKDKnickerbocker “as it scrambles to deal with the ongoing scandal”:

SKDKnickerbocker is no newbie to working on Planned Parenthood issues. The Democratically aligned firm is run by well-connected operatives, including Anita Dunn and Hilary Rosen. It also worked with the group during the 2012 election cycle, according to SKDKnickerbocker’s website.

SKDKnickerbocker is also the group Susan G. Komen for the Cure hired in 2011 when it was trying to fend off Planned Parenthood after deciding to break financial ties with the abortion giant.

At the time, Komen’s then-vice president for public policy, Karen Handel, expressed skepticism of SKDKnickerbocker’s loyalty, precisely because of its long-standing alliance with Democrats and Planned Parenthood, as she later described in her book and to the Daily Caller.

How ironic that only three years later Planned Parenthood is now the group in the hot seat. Who would have guessed?

One can only hope SKDKnickerbocker is as successful now as it was with Komen.

It also occurs to me that were Komen to try to disentangle itself from Planned Parenthood today, it would have no trouble, seeing as corporations are abandoning Planned Parenthood in droves, plus Planned Parenthood is a bit too stretched to muster a fight.

Only two weeks ago Komen lost a $4.75 million earmark from the sale of a commemorative coin over its relationship with the United States’ largest abortion provider.

It’s not too late, Komen. How just it would be to pay back both Planned Parenthood and SKDKnickerbocker at the same time.

New video: Planned Parenthood docs angle to maximize profit from baby parts

2015-07-28_0816

As someone on Twitter noted, “Each video just gets worse and worse.”

The latest video release from The Center for Medical Progress only adds to the growing volume of evidence that Planned Parenthood abortion clinics and practitioners across the country are systemically involved in trafficking parts and organs from aborted babies for profit.

Katharine Sheehan and Savita Ginde, Planned Parenthood abortionIn this video we are introduced to two new Planned Parenthood abortionists involved in the baby parts trade: Katharine Sheehan, Medical Director of Planned Parenthood Pacific Southwest (pictured top right), and Savita Ginde, Vice President and Medical Director of Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountains (pictured bottom right).

Sheehan indicated her affiliate’s involvement in selling baby parts is long-standing: “We have already a relationship with ABR [Advanced Bioscience Resources, a baby parts buyer]… We’ve been using them for over 10 years… a long time, so we just kind of renegotiated the contracts. They’re doing the big collection for government level collections and things like that….”

“Government level collections” being baby parts you and I pay for, as spotlighted by the New York Times yesterday:

The National Institutes of Health spent $76 million on research using fetal tissue in 2014 with grants to more than 50 universities…. It expects to spend the same amount in 2015 and 2016.

This video takes us into a Planned Parenthood ”procurement room,” where tiny baby parts are harvested. Aside from the shock of the blood and the gore is the shock of how discernible a baby’s tiny organs are at only 11.6 weeks of age (beginning 9:43 on the video)…

2015-07-28_1020

2015-07-28_1022

And again, as seen in the two previous videos, the Planned Parenthood abortionists in these videos display a clear profit motive, such as when Ginde said, “I think a per item thing works a little better, just because we can see how much we can get out of it” (10:44 on the video).

Spin that, Cecile Richards.

This video also features a damning interview with former StemExpress employee Holly O’Donnell, who harvested organs and body parts for her company inside at least one Planned Parenthood clinic…

[youtube]https://youtu.be/Xw2xi9mhmuo[/youtube]

Yesterday, Senate Majority Whip John Cornyn tweeted a Planned Parenthood defunding bill could be seen on his side as early as this week…

… while House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy called for Planned Parenthood to be “immediately” defunded while investigations take place.

Planned Parenthood deletes offensive “Minions” tweet

2015-07-27_1949

As if Planned Parenthood needed any more heat, it drew fire July 24 for an ill-conceived tweet attacking pro-life undercover investigators who exposed its side business of baby parts trafficking with, of all things, a yellow creature from the children’s movie Minions.

The Washington Times laid out the groaner:

Following widespread criticism after two video clips revealed Planned Parenthood is in the business of selling the organs of aborted fetuses, the organization tweeted an encouraging message to its followers using animation from the new Universal Pictures movie, “Minions.”

“Friends who #StandWithPP: Stay Strong. The anti-abortion minions want to bully us into silence. That’s not going to happen,” the organization tweeted Friday, with and [sic] image of one of the lovable yellow “minions” dropping a microphone…

“The irony of Planned Igorhood posting a clip from a children’s movie! I guess dead conscience is a dead conscience,” one user responded….

In a blog post on Friday, Ms. [Bristol] Palinblasted Planned Parenthood asking, “How ironic is it that Planned Parenthood is using a gif of a minion to attack their critics?

“Can you imagine the folks over at Planned Parenthood, wondering how on earth they can spin themselves out of this mess? I know! Let’s use cute minions to distract people from the fact that we got caught selling dead baby parts!” Ms. Palin wrote.

The gif doesn’t make much sense, really.

Is the Minion dropping the mic supposed to be Center for Medical Progress’s David Daleiden fumbling the investigation? With five federal investigations now either launched or requested in its wake, eight state investigations, 2.6 million views of video #1, and 1 million views of video #2, I don’t think so.

Is it supposed to represent Planned Parenthood deciding to ignore the outcry? With Planned Parenthood CEO Cecile Richards offering her own vapid video in response (to a paltry 235k views), followed by a shaky interview with ABC’s George Stephanopoulos, I don’t think that’s it either.

9XHl18c

Minion_angryWhatever, Planned Parenthood’s rattled PR minions finally decided to abandon the ruse of bravado and quietly deleted the tweet today.

Either that or the real Minions threatened to sue.

Fortunately, however, the Wayback Machine has preserved the infamous tweet for posterity, along with some inglorious comments. Click on the link, type “https://twitter.com/PPact/status/624579796153040896” in the search, and click on July 24, 2015.

VIDEO: Obama goes out of his way to thank Planned Parenthood during midst of baby parts scandal

2015-07-27_1000President Obama has a long-standing, super close relationship with Planned Parenthood, most clearly exemplified by his willingness in 2011 to shut down the federal government rather than allow the abortion giant to be defunded.

Obama hasn’t stopped with his own turf. He has also blocked state efforts to defund Planned Parenthood.

The quid pro quo is obvious: Planned Parenthood spends an inordinate amount of money and engages its vast grassroots network to get pro-abortion candidates elected; then they as pro-abortion legislators hand money back to Planned Parenthood, the most recent example being the Obamacare funding stream.

The symbiotic relationship between Obama and Planned Parenthood goes back to his days as Illinois state senator, when Obama conspired with Illinois Planned Parenthood CEO Pam Sutherland to block passage of both the state Partial Birth Abortion Ban and Born Alive Protection Act.

Now, it the face of the growing Planned Parenthood baby parts scandal, the potential to strip Planned Parenthood of its $528.4 million in federal funding has never been more real.

2015-07-27_0956

If Planned Parenthood loses that funding, which accounts for 41% of its $1.3 billion budget, it will be severely hobbled, if it doesn’t collapse altogether. It will certainly be in no position to help its political friends.

And as Planned Parenthood goes, so goes pro-abortion politicians.

So the stakes for Democrats are as high as the stakes for Planned Parenthood as the drumbeat for defunding grows louder.

Which is why, as pro-abortion Mother Jones aptly put it, “Pro-choicers are actually freaking out about these Planned Parenthood sting videos – And they should be.”

Thus, on cue, Obama included Planned Parenthood in a July 24 video thanking enablers for keeping Obamacare afloat.

See :54 on the video:

[youtube]https://youtu.be/AhivICxNd7w[/youtube]

110323_boehner_mcconnell_repeal_ap_328Make no mistake, this message also served as a shot across the bow to Republicans: Obama is not backing away from Planned Parenthood one iota.

So what? This shouldn’t matter. As Todd Starnes wrote at Townhall on July 24, “If the GOP can’t muster the moral courage to defund Planned Parenthood, they don’t deserve the White House in 2016.”

More than being the politically right thing to do – as this is clearly one abortion issue that has Democrats on the run – it is the morally right thing to do.
