An undercover video released by the Center for Medical Progress (CMP) alleges that Planned Parenthood is selling the body parts of aborted babies. In the sting, a man and woman posing as potential buyers meet Dr. Deborah Nucatola for lunch to discuss the purchase.
Nucatola is senior director at Planned Parenthood Federation of America’s Medical Services division. Part of her responsibility includes training abortion doctors and performing the procedure herself.
In the interview, Nucatola seems to suggest baby parts are for sale, a practice CMP states is illegal in the United States. Further the Planned Parenthood director seems to imply the abortion giant changes its abortion procedures to increase its chances of successfully harvesting body parts that includes lungs, livers, hearts and even heads, that seem to bring the best price.
CMP alleges that Planned Parenthood is using the partial birth abortion method to get these body parts. It is a practice considered illegal in most states.
In the video, Nucatola says:
“We’ve been very good at getting heart, lung, liver because we know that, so I’m not going to crush that part, I’m gonna basically crush below, I’m gonna crush above and I’m gonna see if I can get it all intact.”
How anyone could so casually talk about this ghoulish stuff over lunch is beyond me.
The Planned Parenthood official also indicates that staff sometimes meet in the morning to discuss what body parts have been ordered before proceeding with the abortions.
After the release of the undercover video, Planned Parenthood responded stating it supplies body tissue for scientific research. It also added that it does not receive compensation for the samples and any monetary exchange is for delivery of the specimens.
In some jurisdictions, the abortion giant Planned Parenthood aborts babies up to 24 weeks. Recent evidence shows that babies as young as 22 weeks and even earlier experience pain during abortions.
