No doubt by now most everyone has seen or heard of the undercover video that exposes Planned Parenthood’s abhorrent practice of harvesting ‘specimens’ from aborted fetuses.
Texas governor Greg Abbott late Tuesday said state officials will look into whether Planned Parenthood clinics in Texas are harvesting fetal body parts as other officials here and across the country called for investigations following the release of an undercover video.
“The video of Senior Director of Medical Services, Dr. Deborah Nucatola, discussing the details of internal abortion procedures – including harvesting of baby body parts – is unnerving and appalling,” Abbott said in a statement about the video, which appears to show the organization’s senior director of medical services drinking red wine while discussing in graphic detail how to preserve the organs of a fetus during an abortion, and how much it would cost.
“In light of the video,” Abbott said, “I have directed the Texas Health and Human Services Commission to conduct an immediate investigation of this alleged practice in addition to a separate investigation ordered by the Texas Office of the Attorney General.”
Governor Bobby Jindal of Louisiana, also appalled by the news has already called on the state’s Dept. of Health and Hospitals to conduct an investigation of what he called “this alleged evil and illegal activity.”
Nucatola admits that Planned Parenthood charges per-specimen for baby body parts, uses illegal partial-birth abortion procedures in order to get salable parts, and is aware of their own liability for doing so and takes steps to cover it up.
The buyers ask Nucatola, “How much of a difference can that actually make, if you know kind of what’s expected, or what we need?”
“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.”
Nucatola explains, “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.”
“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.”
It’s mindboggling to hear Nucatola nonchalantly talking about this process over lunch, like other women would discuss picking vegetables from the produce section in their local market.
Operation Rescue President Troy Newman serves on the Board of Daleiden’s Center for Medical Progress, who conducted the undercover operation. During this investigation, Newman advised Daleiden, providing consultation services and material support.
“Abortionists use ultrasound like a butcher uses scales to sell meat by the pound for profit,” said Newman in an email to LifeNews. “Evidence further shows that Planned Parenthood has gone to great lengths to keep the public from ever knowing about their illicit human body-parts trade, understanding that if news were to leak, it could spell doom for the abortion giant.”
Planned Parenthood’s spokesman Eric Ferrero issued a statement denying they’ve done anything wrong and accused the Center for Medical Progress of releasing a heavily edited video.
Ferrero went on to acknowledge they help patients who want to donate tissue for scientific research and they do so will the full consent from patients “and under the highest ethical and legal standards. There is no financial benefit for tissue donation for either the patient or for Planned Parenthood. In some instances, actual costs, such as the cost to transport tissue to leading research centers, are reimbursed, which is standard across the medical field.”
Planned Parenthood denied they made any money off the sale of aborted baby parts, but we just heard Nucatola admit they charged money for it, thus exposing his lies in addition to their ungodly practices.
Simply put, Planned Parenthood is desecrating unborn babies for profit and in the most ghoulish way possible. Not only that, they are doing it with taxpayer funds. It couldn’t be any clearer that these are not health care providers – they are murdering grave robbers, in the absence of graves.
They absolutely must be shut down and right now.
