The Center for Medical Progress (CMP) is at it again. The latest video, released Thursday, purports to reveal a “secretive, annual meeting trade show” hosted by the National Abortion Federation (NAF) every April. In the video, various abortionists admit the gruesome nature of their work, and talk about performing abortions with an eye to preserving body parts for sale.
“You know, sometimes she’ll tell me she wants brain, and we’ll, you know, leave the calvarium [skull] until last, and then try to basically take it or actually take it or actually, you know, catch everything, and then even keep it separate from the rest of the tissue so it doesn’t get lost,” Dr. Deborah Nucatola, senior director of medical services at Planned Parenthood Federation of America (PPFA), says in the video.
Nucatola was the center of earlier CMP sting videos, which revealed certain Planned Parenthood staff members’ penchant for keeping body parts of aborted babies to sell to outfits like StemExpress. Under the law, PPFA may recoup costs of harvesting and transporting fetal tissue, but it may not profit from the sale.
The earlier videos showed workers allegedly profiting, speaking about purchasing Lamborghinis. While PPFA released a report meant to silence the scandal, they used Fusion GPS, the same firm behind the notorious Trump-Russia dossier. Meant to dismiss the CMP videos as selectively edited, the report actually acknowledged that there was no “widespread evidence of substantive video manipulation.”
This means that most likely, the new CMP video is also accurate. So Nucatola’s comments about preserving the skulls of aborted babies are likely legitimate.
On the subject of skulls, the new video also showed Talcott Camp, J.D., the deputy director of the ACLU’s Reproductive Health Freedom Project. “I’m like — oh my God! I get it! When the skull is broken, that’s really sharp!” Camp admitted in a speech. “I get it! I understand why people are talking about getting that skull out.”
“The fetus is a tough little object, and taking it apart, I mean taking it apart, on day one is very difficult,” Dr. Susan Robinson, an abortionist at Planned Parenthood Mar Monte in San Jose, Calif., said in the video.
Dr. Lisa Harris, medical director at Planned Parenthood of Michigan, admitted that “our stories don’t really have a place in a lot of pro-choice discourse and rhetoric.” Harris added, “The heads that get stuck that we can’t get out. The hemorrhages that we manage. Those are all parts of our experience. But there’s no real good place for us to share those.”
“Given that we actually see the fetus the same way, and given that we might actually both agree that there’s violence in here … let’s just give [the pro-life movement] the violence, it’s a person, it’s killing, let’s just give them that,” Harris said in the video.
After these gruesome details and this stunning admission, the CMP video featured various people admitting that there is a market for baby parts.
“There’s a lot of clinics that we work with that, I mean, it helps them out significantly,” a procurement manager for StemExpress LLC admitted.
“I know Planned Parenthood sells a lot of stuff to people,” added Dr. Paul Blumenthal, medical director emeritus at Planned Parenthood of Maryland.
“The truth is that some might do it for, to increase their revenues,” admitted Deb VanDerhei, national director at the Consortium of Abortion Providers (CAPS) at PPFA. “And we can’t stop them.”
“I get a lot of ‘ooh!’s and ‘aah!’s from StemEx[press],” Dr. Leslie Drummond, an abortionist at Planned Parenthood Mar Monte, recalled. “You know, they’re wanting livers. Last week I was in Sacramento and she said, ‘I need four intact limbs.’ And I said you want what?”
The CMP videos caused a real stir in 2015, but they may not reach as far this time. Pro-life activists and ordinary Americans will likely be outraged, as they should be, but most of the media will likely bury the story. Liberals will dismiss it as a conservative hatchet job, and Democrats will continue to hitch their campaigns to the Planned Parenthood bandwagon.
After all, in January a report found that Planned Parenthood and its affiliates cost taxpayers about $12.8 million in fraud. This did not prevent DNC Chair Tom Perez from alienating Democrats by declaring that pro-life people have no place in the party. It did not prevent Hillary Clinton from saying that America would face a “Handmaid’s Tale” future without the “moral force” of Planned Parenthood.
Even so, most Americans favor abortion restrictions. This video should still cause a stir, and it deserves to be spread far and wide. You can do that by sharing this article.
