The Center for Medical Progress, a non-profit group “dedicated to monitoring and reporting on medical ethics and advances” released undercover video Tuesday that appears to show Planned Parenthood’s Senior Director of Medical Services, Dr. Deborah Nucatola, nonchalantly brokering the sale of aborted baby parts. Suddenly the entire late-term/partial-birth movement makes better sense — MONEY.
The video is harrowing, like something out of a James Bond movie, where apparently, a top-executive at a major institution (that annually receives hundreds of millions in taxpayer dollars) blandly explains how Planned Parenthood will perform abortions in special ways in order to preserve body parts that will later be sold illegally; how the forceps are used, etc.. All over a meal and wine.
“We’ve been very good at getting heart, lung, liver, because we know that, so I’m not gonna crush that part,” Nucatola coldly explains. “I’m gonna basically crush [the unborn child] below, I’m gonna crush above, and I’m gonna see if I can get it all intact. … And for that reason, most providers will do this case under ultrasound guidance, so they’ll know where they’re putting their forceps.”
Nucatola also goes into great detail to explain how Planned Parenthood is able to use its loose affiliates as a way to protect the parent company from potential legal fallout.
The video goes a long way to explain Planned Parenthood’s eternal devotion to legalizing late-term and partial-birth abortion.
Nucatola explains to the undercover reporters that the butchered body parts (hearts, livers, “lower extremities — probably for the muscle”) sell for $30 to $100 apiece.
Moreover, the more fully-formed the baby body parts, the more valuable those parts are.
By successfully lobbying Democrats (including President Obama and Hillary Clinton) to keep partial birth legal, Planned Parenthood is able to harvest more profitable body parts. By successfully lobbying the mainstream media to not report on the horrors of late-term/partial-birth abortion, the issue is ignored and dismissed as the infanticide marches on.
Planned Parenthood is not just an evil enterprise. It has long been rumored that abortion mills like Planned Parenthood have been doing this using legal loopholes involving “site fees” and other loopholes. This allows the abortion provider to claim the tissue is being donated.
And your tax dollars, to the tune of nearly a half-billion dollars annually, helps to fund all of it.
Thank heaven for these citizen journalists — those doing the work the mainstream media won’t.
