New Video Exposes Planned Parenthood Selling Body Parts from Partial-Birth Abortions

Selling fetal parts is a strategy on the national level spearheaded by Planned Parenthood's top doctor.

A chilling video was released today by the Center for Medical Progress as the culmination of a nearly 3-year-long investigative journalism study of Planned Parenthood’s illegal trafficking of aborted fetal parts.

“I must admit I was speechless for close to an hour,” commented Russell Moore, president of the Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission of the Southern Baptist Convention. “I saw a video posted online, of an undercover operation in which Planned Parenthood’s top doctor is selling the body parts of aborted children. Having seen so many Internet hoaxes bandied about, I initially assumed this was one of them.” Sadly, it isn’t a hoax, he said he soon realized: “After a few calls to respected figures in the pro-life community, though, who confirmed the accuracy of the video, I was speechless again.”

Investigators from the Center for Medical Progress met with Planned Parenthood’s Senior Director of Medical Services, Deborah Nucatola. She’s not just an isolated abortion doctor at one clinic; as she makes clear on video, trying to impress the tissue buyers, “I’m the medical director for the national office, for all the United States.”

In a gruesome scene during the lunch meeting, Nucatola is asked about pricing for the baby parts. She explains that “a lot of people want liver, and for that reason, most providers will [use] ultrasound guidance, so they’ll know where they’re putting their forceps.”

The care that abortion docs take while dismembering babies as old as 24 weeks is not to reduce their pain and suffering, but to preserve their organs for sale.

Let that sink in.

She goes on to describe an illegal procedure: partial-birth abortion. It’s a federal felony punishable by law. But for Nucatola, it’s a matter of interpretation. “The federal [partial-birth] abortion ban is a law, and laws are up to interpretation.”

This isn’t isolated. This is Planned Parenthood’s Senior Director of Medical Services telling buyers how they can maximize profits by choosing which abortion cases to do on a given day.

The video ends with a quick interview with Planned Parenthood CEO Cecile Richards being thanked by the buyer, who says that he does “fetal tissue collection” (“Great!”) and that Dr. Nucatola has been so helpful. Richards’ response is to gush, “She’s amazing.”

Investigative Project Lead David Daleiden commented, “Planned Parenthood’s criminal conspiracy to make money off of aborted baby parts reaches to the very highest levels of their organization. Elected officials must listen to the public outcry for Planned Parenthood to be held accountable to the law and for our tax dollars to stop underwriting this barbaric abortion business.”
