Young Whistleblower Who Exposed Planned Parenthood’s Baby Body Part Harvesting Dead at 27

By Nancy Flory Published on October 2, 2018

A young woman who helped lift the curtain on Planned Parenthood’s baby body part harvesting and profiteering has died. Holly O’Donnell spoke with the Center for Medical Progress (CMP) after she learned what her former employer, StemExpress, was up to.

StemExpress worked with Planned Parenthood to harvest and sell body parts of aborted babies. She worked as a phlebotomist. She quit after she was told she’d had to harvest body parts. 

According to CMP, Holly O’Donnell had multiple health challenges and was on life support before she passed. She was 27 years old. 

First-Hand Witness

O’Donnell witnessed first-hand the atrocities of baby body part harvesting while working at Planned Parenthood for StemExpress. She passed out on her first day when she saw a baby’s body cut up to sell. She also testified that during her time at StemExpress, she was required to match pregnant patients with the needs of StemExpress customers. CMP argues Planned Parenthood violated federal law by not obtaining proper consent from mothers to harvest the baby body parts.

According to, O’Donnell witnessed many horrific events during her time at StemExpress:

  • In the third video: Holly O’Donnell, a former Stem Express employee who worked inside a Planned Parenthood clinic, detailed first-hand the unspeakable atrocities and how she fainted in horror over handling baby legs.
  • In the sixth video: Holly O’Donnell described technicians taking fetal parts without patient consent: “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.”
  • In the seventh and perhaps most disturbing video: Holly O’Donnell described 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. “‘You 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.”

Holly O’Donnell’s Legacy

In a statement, CMP remembered O’Donnell as a courageous young woman and friend. “No matter the lies and smears from corrupt establishment and Planned Parenthood-sponsored media … and always with her own great love and humility, Holly O’Donnell was clear about what she saw: StemExpress and Planned Parenthood sold baby parts.”

“Her legacy has already left a profound impact on the fight to make abortion unthinkable and unavailable in our lifetime. O’Donnell demonstrated profound courage and integrity in revealing the horrific acts she witnessed while working inside Planned Parenthood for StemExpress, a vendor of human body parts.”
