A former procurement specialist told pro-life activists that Planned Parenthood and organ companies looked at positive pregnancy tests as “opportunities” to cash in.
Holly O’Donnell, a former technician with organ tissue company StemExpress, took activists through the day-to-day operations of her former career. She described walking in to clinics with a checklist of body parts and ages of the aborted babies. She would then cross that list with the scheduled abortions for that day.
“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 said in the video. “Pregnancy tests are potential pregnancies, therefore potential specimens. So it’s just taking advantage of the opportunities.”
O’Donnell, 24, became a licensed phlebotomist to help draw blood, but took a job at the tissue procurement company. She now describes herself as “very pro-life” and alleged on the video that Planned Parenthood clinics pressured women into consenting to organ donations and in some instances violated those consent forms. If O’Donnell failed to convince a patient to hand over the organs her superiors told her, “well that’s an opportunity you just missed.”
