One of the many ridiculous defense offered up by Planned Parenthood defenders in recent days has centered on the idea that the women aborting their children had given “informed consent” for their children’s organs to be harvested. It’s kind of like they gave permission for Planned Parenthood to make their baby an organ donor after it was murdered…
There are several problems with this defense (like the baby being the donor without getting any choice in the matter), but we won’t get into those right now – we’ll just discuss this one – apparently not every woman does give informed consent.
In their video series “Human Capital,” the Center for Medical Progress goes inside the Planned Parenthood Supply Site and learns about the immoral, unethical and oftentimes illegal actions of Planned Parenthood and their partners in crime.
The second episode in a new documentary web series highlights a young woman’s eyewitness narrative of the daily practice of fetal body parts harvesting in Planned Parenthood abortion clinics, describing tissue procurement workers’ coordination with abortion providers, the pressure placed on patients, and disregard for patient consent…
As a procurement tech, O’Donnell’s job was to identify pregnant patients matching the specifications of StemExpress customers and to harvest the fetal body parts from their abortions.
“It’s not an option, it’s a demand,” StemExpress supervisors instructed O’Donnell about approaching pregnant women at Planned Parenthood for fetal tissue “donations.” O’Donnell says the StemExpress techs working in Planned Parenthood clinics sometimes harvested fetal parts without obtaining consent from the patients: “If there was a higher gestation, and the technicians needed it, there were times when they would just take what they wanted. And these mothers don’t know. And there’s no way they would know.”
According to O’Donnell, Planned Parenthood gave StemExpress workers access to patient records and schedules so that the harvesting company could plan for the days when patient “supply” would be greatest. “They give you a sheet, and it’s everybody for that day, who’s coming in for an ultrasound, who’s coming in for an abortion, medical or a late-term abortion,” O’Donnell explains. Even patients just seeking a pregnancy test at Planned Parenthood were considered part of the supply: “Pregnancy tests are potential pregnancies, therefore potential specimens. So it’s just taking advantage of the opportunities.”
