Can you imagine, in your wildest dreams, meeting up with potential clients for lunch and discussing the sale of baby body parts while drinking your sparkling water with lemon and feeding your face? That’s exactly what happened. Even the sickest minds in Hollywood couldn’t make this up.
And when you’re done reading — if you make it to the end — remember this is your tax dollars at work.
News Max makes this gruesome report:
Planned Parenthood is involved in the sale of body parts from aborted fetuses, according to undercover video footage of a conversation with Planned Parenthood’s senior director of medical services.
At a business lunch, Dr. Deborah Nucatola tells actors posing as buyers in a video released by The Center for Medical Progress about the process she goes through to procure body parts for such buyers.Nucatola is involved in the training of new abortion doctors at Planned Parenthood, and she also performs abortions herself at a Los Angeles-area clinic up until 24 weeks. She has held the position since 2009. You can watch an excerpt of the video yourself below — and read on for more details. In both cases, be forewarned: this is graphic.
In the video, the buyers ask Nucatola, “How much of a difference can that actually make, if you know kind of what’s expected, or what we need?”
“It makes a huge difference,” the Planned Parenthood abortion doctor says. “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,” she said.
“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,” the Planned Parenthood director says in the video.
“And with the calvarium, in general, some people will actually try to change the presentation so that it’s not vertex,” she continues. “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.”
Nucatola’s description of the procedure, in which the fetus is taken from the breech position, is commonly known as partial-birth abortion, which is illegal in the United States.
Beside being gruesome and sick, what Nucatola describes is illegal.
She admits that the legal department at the Planned Parenthood national office is not comfortable with local offices being involved with the sale of fetal body parts because of the potential liability.
I love this part. The legal department apparently has no issue killing babies while pulling them apart limb by limb — they just don’t want the local offices getting caught.
“At 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,” she says. “But I will tell you that behind closed doors these conversations are happening with the affiliates.”
According to The Center for Medical Progress, someone caught selling or purchasing human fetal tissue can face up to 10 years in prison and a fine up to $500,000, under federal law.
At the end of the video, Planned Parenthood President and CEO Cecile Richards is seen praising Nucatola and her work in collecting fetal tissue.
“She’s amazing,” Richards says.
Wow. Just wow.
The Center for Medical Progress says that this is the first video to be released in its “Human Capital” series, part of an almost three-year investigation into the illegal selling of aborted fetal parts by Planned Parenthood.
“Planned Parenthood’s criminal conspiracy to make money off of aborted baby parts reaches to the very highest levels of their organization,” said David Daleiden, project lead at the center.
“Elected officials must listen to the public outcry for Planned Parenthood to be held accountable to the law and for our tax dollars to stop underwriting this barbaric abortion business,” he said.
If you find yourself can’t quite believing this is real — and I wish it wasn’t — you can watch the full video here. As Mediaite notes, unlike other hidden camera stings (cough coughJamesO’Keefecough), the Center also immediately posted the full two-hour-and-forty minute video of the meeting, presumably to counter accusations of selective editing.
