A recently disclosed video, filmed in secret, has revealed a senior physician with Planned Parenthood discussing how clinics affiliated by the nation’s top abortion provider maximize profits from the discarded organs resulting from abortion procedures.
During the video, the physician, Dr. Deborah Nucatola, Senior Director for Medical Services at Planned Parenthood, is seen eating lunch with undercover representatives of the Center for Medical Progress, a pro-life group which hired actors to conduct an undercover investigation into the practices of the leading abortion provider.
At points in the video, Dr. Nucatola appears to communicate the careful measures the abortion provider takes to avoid rendering any organ useless:
“Yesterday was the first time she said people wanted lungs. And then, like I said, always as many intact livers as possible,” she is seen telling the actors between bites of food. “People just want… some people want lower extremities, too. I mean that’s easy. I don’t know what they’re doing with it, I guess they want muscle.” “We’ve been very good at getting heart, lung, liver, because we know that, so I’m not gonna crush that part,” Nucatola adds.“I’m gonna basically crush below, I’m gonna crush above, and I’m gonna see if I can get it all intact.”
The Center for Medical Progress, based in California, stated the video is testimony Planned Parenthood profits from the organs of aborted babies.
Planned Parenthood, which receives $27 million in tax dollars yearly, responded to the allegations Wednesday, saying they were politically motivated, “outrageous” and “flat-out untrue.”
National Right to Life reacted with similar swiftness:
“It is stomach-churning to hear a top doctor for the national Planned Parenthood organization admit, on videotape, that Planned Parenthood abortionists can and will alter late abortion procedures to facilitate the harvesting of intact baby body parts – she specifically mentioned hearts, lungs, livers, even intact heads — in order to fill specific pre-orders,”National Right to Life President Carol Tobias told FoxNews.com. “Numerous statements by Dr. Nucatola cry out for probes by Congress and other investigatory agencies — and quickly.”
Ambush techniques are not an imaginative enterprise, but the subject matter here tugs at the heartstrings.
Had this been animal parts sent to laboratories for cosmetic testing, the bloated hue and cry from the Left and animal rights activists would be deafening. If this video is conclusive evidence Planned Parenthood is engaged in the trafficking of human organs, a criminal inquiry is needed. At minimum, Dr. Nucatola’s grisly revelations should lead Congress to re-examine the relationship our legislative body has with Planned Parenthood and strip the abortion provider of its generous $27 million tax-dollar handout.[FOX News] [RT] [Youtube]
