Planned Parenthood senior official caught discussing business in fetal organs [CWN]

TK421 the organs are pretty much useless except for research. To be viable for transplant unpaired vital organs must be removed from a living person with circulation and respiration. I suppose there may be some cases where they have planned harvesting organs of an older fetus,but that would be very difficult to prove.

Abortion on demand has been legal for 42 years. Why does this surprise anyone?

I don’t even know what to say. this is lower than low.

I couldn’t have said it any better myself.

The person in the video actually does abortions in LA, so you can assume she’s talking about things she has done.

Like the secular sources were fighting each other, to report such a story first. :rolleyes:

Stories such as these are usually only available through morally/religious orientated publications.

How did we ever get to this point in our society?? I didn’t even know what an abortion was till after I was married and had several babies. Miscarriage, yes but for a mother to kill her own baby. I lived in Colo. then and it was, I think the first state to legalize abortion. I couldn’t believe it was really happening. I never dreamed our whole country would turn on tiny babies. What have we become in the past 50 years?? Certainly nothing to be proud of anymore. God Bless, Memaw

The people who do these undercover stings are usually pretty media savvy. They will release an edited video, then when the organization in questions argues that the video was “heavily edited” and “took remarks out of context,” reveal the full video to show that it was even worse than we imagined. That seems to be happening here.

This nation has squandered what little bit of morality it ever had. I am expecting fire and brimstone any time now.

This story makes me so sick. How evil. PP is a demonic organization. :eek::mad:

Planned Parenthood are pretty gross, ngl.

Quite literally evil.

No doubt excuses will be made for this demonic practice, by people who would be calling for her to be shot at dawn if she was a doing the same things to domestic pets that she admits doing to people, whilst she sips wine and munches salad.

The abortion giant released a statement from a top official defending Nucatola and its practice of selling body parts of aborted babies, which it calls “tissue.” Here is the Planned Parenthood press release:

Statement from Eric Ferraro, Vice President of Communications, Planned Parenthood Federation of America:

“In health care, patients sometimes want to donate tissue to scientific research that can help lead to medical breakthroughs, treatments and cures for serious diseases. Women at Planned Parenthood who have abortions are no different. At several of our health centers, we help patients who want to donate tissue for scientific research, and we do this just like every other high-quality health care provider does — with full, appropriate consent from patients and under the highest ethical and legal standards. There is no financial benefit for tissue donation for either the patient or Planned Parenthood. In some instances, actual costs, such as the cost to transport tissue to leading research centers, are reimbursed, which is standard across the medical field.

“A well-funded group established for the purpose of damaging Planned Parenthood’s mission and services has promoted a heavily edited, secretly recorded videotape that falsely portrays Planned Parenthood’s participation in tissue donation programs that support lifesaving scientific research. Similar false accusations have been put forth by opponents of abortion services for decades. These groups have been widely discredited and their claims fall apart on closer examination, just as they do in this case.”

There are multiple problems in this response, but LifeNews points out the most obvious:

However, federal law prohibits the sale of body parts of aborted babies. In fact, the sale or purchase of human fetal tissue a federal felony punishable by up to 10 years in prison and a fine of up to $500,000 (42 U.S.C. 289g-2).

It’s not illegal to donate tissue, but the sale of it is definitely illegal. The costs to which Ferraro alludes would not apply in abortions, since that is a paid-for procedure by the mother. Transportation costs would almost certainly not apply on a body-part basis either, especially with the wide disparities of price noted by PP’s Senior Director of Medical Services, Dr. Deborah Nucatola in the video.

The context of the video was clearly not reimbursement for transportation of random tissue. Nucatola talks extensively about the demand for specific body parts in relation to price. “A lot of people want liver,” Nucatola states, and then explains how they train their staff to perform these abortions so that PP clinics can harvest organs to meet specific demand, and then make the sale. At one point, Nucatola even talks about body parts being on a “menu.”

Besides, if this was all business as usual, why does Nucatola discuss the strategic policies of the corporate office to have the affiliates front these sales? The reporter posing as a buyer asks Nucatola why he can’t just coordinate the sales with the national office. “We have a Litigation and Law Department which just really doesn’t want us to be the middle people for this issue right now,” and that their lawyers consider it “too touchy” for the national office. “But I will tell you that behind these closed doors,” Nucatola explains further, “these conversations are happening with the affiliates.”

There is no possible context for these remarks to be about “reimbursements” or “transportation costs.” This is about illegal trafficking in aborted babies, and what Nucatola describes is an organized strategy to cover it up. Congress should demand an immediate investigation into this practice.

PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATES REACT TO NEWS THAT PLANNED PARENTHOOD SELLS FETAL BODY PARTS

catholicvote.org/presidential-candidates-react-to-news-that-planned-parenthood-sells-fetal-body-parts/

PP is vile and diabolical.They continue to push their evil agenda with impunity.When will enough be enough,to rid this country of the scourge that is PP? :(:mad:

I just never understand that. An unborn baby is NOT anyone’s property but God’s. He created this child, with his or her soul, He breathed life into this child, knit him or her together in the womb, knew him or her before He even made the child… Talk about objectifying a human being. An unborn baby is an individual. Sometimes I feel these pro-abortion/ anti-lifers think the woman and the baby are one and the same. It would seem so. The baby is not an appendage of her. It is its own person! They act as though the baby is a polyp inside of her that should be removed. How callous.

This is the world we live in.
God have mercy on us all.

What will be enough? God’s judgment, which seems so late in coming.
These babies do not have “recycle me” stamped onto them. I’ve never understood why they aren’t deserving of the same right to life as anyone else? They are no damned different. They are no less a person, just because they aren’t fully developed and haven’t been physically born yet. Well they’ve been created and they are in existence and that should be enough!

It’s in the Washington Post now, so now it is being picked up by the mainstream media though, it is such a big story to sit on until the big boys get it.

Meanwhile, the outrage over the horrific video has spread like wildfire.

Dr. Russell Moore, the president of the Southern Baptist Convention’s Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission, summed it up in one word – speechless.

“If this does not shock the conscience, what will?” Moore wrote online. ‘It is not only that infants, in their mother’s wombs, are deprived of their lives, but also that their corpses are desecrated for profit.”

Think about that for a moment – desecrated unborn babies for profit.

“This is not only murderous; it is murderous in the most ghoulish way imaginable,” Moore added.
