The undercover journalist who videotaped a Planned Parenthood senior medical officer talking about how to buy and sell fetal body parts derived from aborted babies says Planned Parenthood is lying in their response to his video.
Planned Parenthood said Tuesday that it does not make money from selling fetal body parts to companies like StemExpress, and any revenues received are related strictly to expenses.
David Daleiden of the Center for Medical Progress said the abortion provider is lying: “Planned Parenthood makes two key admissions in their statement today; first, that aborted fetal parts are harvested at their clinics, and second, that money is exchanged in connection with this.”
He also says Planned Parenthood is lying by insisting it gets “proper consent” from its patients,” and “Planned Parenthood does not make money off the body parts.”
In response, Daleiden produced an online ad from StemExpress, Planned Parenthood’s partner in the body-parts business, that “advertises 4 different times the financial benefit that Planned Parenthood clinics can receive from supplying fetal tissue with the words, ‘Financially profitable,’ ‘Financial Profits,’ ‘financial benefit to your clinic,’ and ‘fiscal growth of your own clinic.'” The ad has the endorsement of Planned Parenthood Medical Director Dr. Dorothy Furgerson.
Planned Parenthood fired back this afternoon, denying all charges and issuing a dossier on Daleiden and Life Action president Lila Rose, Daleiden’s former boss.
The document issued from Camino Public Relations is a list of Daleiden’s activism over the years that Planned Parenthood finds objectionable, including asking tough questions of a Planned Parenthood representative at a Pomona College lecture and using fake identification to gain access to “private business meetings.” The latter is a reference to the phony company — Biomax Procurement Services LLC — Daleiden established to trick Dr. Deborah Nucatola into talking about the Planned Parenthood body-parts business.
