I need you, dear reader, to understand how difficult these pieces are for me to write. I have just finished watching the 7th Planned Parenthood undercover video and rereading the summary and transcripts and I am emotionally spent. How can we as a society continue to pretend that what happens inside of Planned Parenthood is completely normal and acceptable behavior? Since 1974 we have murdered nearly 60 million American children, and now we have learned that we haven’t just murdered them, but we are using them for medical experimentation as well. And somehow, a large segment of our society justifies it, not realizing that they’ve simply morphed into a modern Josef Mengele. It’s heartbreaking and for me it is also very discouraging.
This latest video is, as promised, the worst one yet. In 10 short minutes we are made witness to some of the most disgusting testimony any of us may ever hear, and we should be forced to recognize that these babies are indeed suffering horrible pain inside the locked doors of your local Planned Parenthood.
PLEASE BE WARNED THAT THIS VIDEO AND THE ACCOMPANYING STORY ARE GRAPHIC. IT IS HEARTBREAKING AND DISGUSTING, BUT THE STORY MUST BE TOLD.
In the 7th video we hear a former Planned Parenthood “procurement specialist” tell the terrible story of “harvesting” an intact brain from a late term baby boy whose heart was still beating after the abortion. Neither the procurement specialist or her supervisor knew for sure if this meant that the baby was still living – but that didn’t stop them from cutting his face open to get at his brain.
The Center for Medical Progress’s project lead David Daleiden explains the gravity of this latest video. “Today’s video contains heartrending admissions about the absolute barbarism of Planned Parenthood’s abortion practice and baby parts sales in which fetuses are sometimes delivered intact and alive. Planned Parenthood is a criminal organization from the top down and should be immediately stripped of taxpayer funding and prosecuted for their atrocities against humanity.”
The series focuses on the personal narrative of Holly O’Donnell, a former Blood and Tissue Procurement Technician for StemExpress, a biotech start-up that until last week was partnered with two large northern California Planned Parenthood affiliates to purchase their aborted fetus parts and resell them for scientific experimentation.
O’Donnell describes the harvesting, or “procurement,” of organs from a nearly intact late-term fetus aborted at Planned Parenthood Mar Monte’s Alameda clinic in San Jose, CA. “‘I want to see something kind of cool,’” O’Donnell says her supervisor asked her. “And she just taps the heart, and it starts beating. And I’m sitting here and I’m looking at this fetus, and its heart is beating, and I don’t know what to think.”
The San Jose Planned Parenthood does abortions up to 20 weeks of pregnancy. Referring to the beating heart of the aborted fetus, O’Donnell remarks, “I don’t know if that constitutes it’s technically dead, or it’s alive.”
O’Donnell also tells how her StemExpress supervisor instructed her to cut through the face of the fetus in order to get the brain. “She gave me the scissors and told me that I had to cut down the middle of the face. I can’t even describe what that feels like,” she says.
The video also features recordings of Dr. Ben Van Handel, the Executive Director of Novogenix Laboratories, LLC, and also of Perrin Larton, Procurement Manager of Advanced Bioscience Resources, Inc. (ABR). Novogenix is the company that has harvested fetal organs from abortions done by Planned Parenthood Federation of America’s Senior Director of Medical Services, Dr. Deborah Nucatola, in Los Angeles, while ABR is the oldest fetal tissue procurement company and works with Planned Parenthood in San Diego and other clinics around the country. Van Handel admits, “There are times when after the procedure is done that the heart actually is still beating,” and Larton describes abortions she has seen where “the fetus was already in the vaginal canal whenever we put her in the stirrups, it just fell out.”
Just a couple of days ago Breitbart News wondered if the revelation that some of these children were born alive would be the next shoe to drop. Breitbart interviewed Dr. Teresa Deisher who explained that unless the organs were harvested within 5 minutes of death, they would be completely useless to the biomedical community, meaning, in her words that, “Biomedical companies prefer gestational ages of greater than 20 weeks for heart muscle. This is from reading their publications; so, I have always suspected that the babies in some of these cases were alive until their hearts were cut out.” Listening from the first video where they talk about getting an intact [corpus] callosum—that’s like a partial birth—the head would have to be through the canal in order to get that material.”
Now we know she was right. Planned Parenthood is keeping babies alive until they can harvest their organs in order to maximize their profit margins.
Will we do anything about it?
