Planned Parenthood’s baby body-parts trade, revealed in a series of undercover videos released over the past year, has been described by members of Congress and experts as a “gruesome” practice, amounting to “charging for pieces of the corpse.”
While Planned Parenthood has retaliated with lawsuits and the pressing of charges against the the investigators deployed by the Center for Medical Progress, the abortion giant has suffered cancellation of government funding and public criticism as well as state and congressional investigations.
Now, CMP has released a video documenting the impact of the investigation.
The undercover videos revealed senior-level Planned Parenthood executives haggling over the sale and price of aborted baby body parts, and the Select Investigative Panel in Congress already has determined that Planned Parenthood was profiting from trade.
The committee also found the abortion industry exposed patients’ private medical records and “pressured patient consent with fraudulent paperwork.”
Among the executives captured on video were Deborah Nucatola, senior director of medical services for Planned Parenthood; Mary Gatter, another executive who told investigators “I want a Lamborghini” as she was negotiating for higher payments; Savita Ginde of Planned Parenthood of the Rockies and Melissa Farrell of Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast.
Nucatola, for example, said while sipping wine, “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.”
Ginde suggested ways to maximize payments for fetal tissue, stating, “I think a per-item thing works a little better, just because we can see how much we can get out of it.”
And Melissa Farrell in Texas promised, “If we alter our process, and we are able to obtain intact fetal cadavers, 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.”
However, making a profit and changing procedures to salvage tissue encroach on federal law.
