A brand new undercover video was released today by the Center For Medical Progress, further exposing Planned Parenthood’s involvement in the trade of aborted fetal tissue and organs.
In the footage, Dr. Carolyn Westhoff, Senior Medical Advisor for PPFA, admits that Planned Parenthood provides buyers with hearts, eyes and “gonads” of unborn babies.
The officials on tape also intimate, once again, that the organisation is using methods that contravene federal law to sell body parts for profit.
“We’ve just been working with people who want particular tissues, like, you know, they want cardiac, or they want eyes, or they want neural,” says Dr. Westhoff, speaking to a reporter who she believes to be a potential buyer.
“Certainly, everything we provide–oh, gonads! Oh my God, gonads. Everything we provide is fresh.” Westhoff blurts, as if she’s selling organic produce in a Grocery store.
“Obviously, we would have the potential for a huge P.R. issue in doing this,” she also states, while offering to contact “national office abortion people” from Planned Parenthood on behalf of the potential buyer.
The footage also shows Deborah VanDerhei, the National Director for CAPS, a Planned Parenthood internal committe, referring to financial transactions for fetal tissue as “donation for remuneration.”
“I have been talking to the executive director of the National Abortion Federation, we’re trying to figure this out as an industry, about how we’re going to manage remuneration, because the headlines would be a disaster.” VanDerhei states.
“We have independent colleagues who generate a fair amount of income doing this.” VanDerhei also states, adding that “It’s an issue that you might imagine we’re not really that comfortable talking about on email.”
VanDerhei is also recorded speaking with Pennsylvania based Planned Parenthood official Vanessa Russo. Russo notes, “A company like this that wants to give our organization money for the tissue – I think that that’s a valid exchange, and that that’s okay.” VanDerhei nods in agreement and mutters “Mmhmmm.”
In another piece of footage, Vanessa Cullins, the Vice President of External Medical Affairs for Planned Parenthood, issues a warning about possible exposure of the fetal tissue trade.
“This is important. This could destroy your organization and us, if we don’t time conversations correctly,” she is recorded telling a reporter she believes to be a prospective buyer.
Commenting on the new footage, head of CMP David Daleiden noted “From email black-outs to contorted oxymorons like ‘donation for remuneration,’ the lengths to which Planned Parenthood leadership will go to cover-up their illegal sale of aborted baby parts are nothing less than the desperation of a guilty conscience.”
“Planned Parenthood CEO Cecile Richards openly admits they receive ‘$60 per tissue specimen,’ and their contracts with StemExpress offer payments per fetus ‘determined in the clinic to be usable.’” Daleiden adds.
“Planned Parenthood runs their abortion and baby parts business in open disregard for the law and should be prosecuted immediately. Their taxpayer funding should be reassigned to Federally Qualified Health Centers, which provide more and comprehensive health services at locations outnumbering Planned Parenthood 20 to 1.” Daleiden further urges.
As the House plans to vote on a bill to freeze Planned Parenthood funding in the coming days, Senator Rand Paul issued an appeal Monday to pastors nationwide to get behind the move to defund the abortion organisation.
“When I saw all of those undercover videos showing Planned Parenthood’s chief abortionist admit they routinely skirt laws against partial-birth abortion to kill unborn babies, dismember them and sell their body parts for profit, it sickened my stomach. I vowed to do everything I could to strip them of every last dime of taxpayer dollars.” a statement accompanying a video message reads.
“I’m writing you today—to ask you to help mobilize the grassroots pressure it’s going to take to force the Senate to strip Planned Parenthood of every last penny of taxpayer dollars.” Paul adds.
