Democratic presidential contenders will not say whether they support congressional investigations of Planned Parenthood in the wake of a new video showing a former fetal procurement technician saying that abortion clinics benefit from organ sales.
The non-profit Center for Medical Progress released the first of a multi-part documentary series on YouTube featuring Holly O’Donnell, a 24-year-old former procurement technician at the fetal tissue company StemExpress.
“I thought I was going to be just drawing blood, not procuring tissue from aborted fetuses,” O’Donnell says. “They partner with Planned Parenthood and they get part of the money because we pay them to use part of the facilities, and they get paid from it. They do get some kind of financial benefit.”
The video purports to show a pay sheet from Advance Bioscience Resources available showing the prices of aborted fetuses. A first trimester baby costs $550, while second trimesters go for $340.
