This is probably the most gut-wrenching story I have ever had to report on in my eight years of pro-life advocacy. It is not for anyone with a weak stomach. If you choose not to read any further, know that it is worse than you think.
A three-year undercover investigation by the Center for Medical Progress reveals that Planned Parenthood is selling organs from late-term babies to medical researchers. And to get the best “product” possible, Planned Parenthood abortionists are putting targeted unborn children in a breech position—the hallmark of the illegal partial-birth abortion method.
Back when partial-birth abortion was front and center in the right-to-life debate, abortion advocates swore that the method could in some cases be the safest for women. But it’s not women’s needs that are dictating the method; it’s medical research companies’ needs. These organs are pre-ordered, and it is not until later that Planned Parenthood sells the abortions and kills the children for their parts.
As Dr. Deborah Nucatola, the head of Planned Parenthood’s Medical Services division and herself a late-term abortionist, says in the undercover video (thinking that she is talking to buyers from a medical biologics firm):
I’d say a lot of people want liver. And for that reason, most providers will do this case under ultrasound guidance, so they’ll know where they’re putting their forceps.
The kind of rate-limiting step of the procedure is calvarium. Calvarium—the head—is basically the biggest part. …
We’ve been very good at getting heart, lung, liver, because we know that, so I’m not gonna 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. And with the calvarium, in general, some people will actually try to change the presentation so that it’s not vertex. …
So if you do it starting from the breech presentation, there’s dilation that happens as the case goes on, and often, the last step, you can evacuate an intact calvarium at the end.
By “calvarium,” she means the helpless child’s skull. And just in case you thought it couldn’t get creepier, she says all of this while she’s eating.
You can verify Nucatola’s comments by watching the initial video footage at CenterForMedicalProgress.org. I understand there will be more videos and documentation released in the near future.
Nucatola is no outlier. She is a top Planned Parenthood official, praised by CEO Cecile Richards herself. There is no possible way that the entire Planned Parenthood enterprise isn’t complicit.
Your tax dollars are propping up this horror, to the tune of $536 million a year.
