“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.”
A hidden camera has captured a disturbing conversation in which the Planned Parenthood Federation Senior Director of Medical Services, Dr. Deborah Nucatola, discusses the operation’s fetal parts side business.
According to Live Action News, Nucatola also describes how Planned Parenthood abortionists move the preborn child into a breech delivery position so that the body can be preserved. This account is an almost exact medical description of partial-birth abortions which are illegal in the United States. In the video, Nucatola describes the procedure:
“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.”
Planned Parenthood Federation of America (PPFA), commonly shortened to Planned Parenthood, is a non-profit organization providing reproductive health and maternal and child health services.
Planned Parenthood has been financed by the US government since 1970, when Richard Nixon signed into law the Family Planning Services and Population Research Act. Approximately 1/3 of their funding comes from the state. By law, federal funding cannot be allocated for abortions, but some opponents of abortion have argued that allocating money to Planned Parenthood for the provision of other medical services “frees up” funds to be re-allocated for abortion.
According to 42 U.S. Code § 289g–2:
It shall be unlawful for any person to knowingly acquire, receive, or otherwise transfer any human fetal tissue for valuable consideration if the transfer affects interstate commerce.
The legal issues were seemingly addressed during the conversation when Nucatola says, “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.”
Lila Rose, Live Action President responded to the disturbing video:
This investigation by the Center for Medical Progress reveals the unimaginable horror that is Planned Parenthood. The exploitation of human life, the cover-up, and the black market profiteering by America’s largest abortion chain is not only egregious and heartbreaking, but exposes how the abortion giant is corrupt to the core — from the CEO, Cecile Richards, down to the local clinic.
Of course, organ donations can be beneficial for those in need. However, as this video shows, these government-funded abortion clinics have an actual financial incentive to abort babies — more aborted fetuses = more black market sales of fetal parts.
Should the state be involved in funding those who profit from the promotion of abortion to build an empire dealing in baby parts?
