15 Years Later, Planned Parenthood still selling baby body parts

In 2000, the pro-life organization Life Dynamics stunned the world with its well-documented report on the fact that the abortion industry was making money selling parts of aborted babies. Planned Parenthood was part of this horrible practice then. A Congressional hearing took place, but Planned Parenthood was able to get its friends in Congress to negotiate a deal that no specific organizations would be mentioned at the hearing. The result was a sham hearing and the concern fading from the spotlight.

Now, it’s 15 years later and a new pro-life group, the Center for Medical Progress, has completed three years of undercover investigation and is releasing material documenting Planned Parenthood’s continued involvement in this grisly trade. In a press release on July 14, CMP revealed a video showing the senior medical director at Planned Parenthood discussing PP’s ongoing involvement in today’s sale of baby body parts. American Life League, along with dozens of other groups, joined in a well-coordinated effort to make sure that this time Planned Parenthood will be held accountable.

This video is dramatic evidence of what dedicated fighters against Planned Parenthood have known for years. Planned Parenthood never gave up this grisly trade. It just went underground and became more brazen. We encourage you to watch this video. There are no pictures of aborted babies and no graphic signs. Instead, there is a harrowing display of just how common abortion has become to Planned Parenthood staff.

This chilling video features Deborah Nucatola, MD, senior director of medical services at Planned Parenthood Federation of America. She is also an active abortionist. The video takes place at a luncheon, where Nucatola sits eating lunch and sipping wine while quietly discussing how she meets with her staff at the abortion facility in the morning and finds out what baby body parts they need to provide that day. She then describes how she reviews the women who are going to have abortions and decides what babies would be best suited to provide those parts. She goes on to say that she will alter the abortion procedure depending on what parts she needs from that particular baby. She says everybody always wants the liver, and others want hearts, lungs, or lower extremities. She says that she will do her abortions using ultrasound guidance so she does not crush the part of the baby that contains the needed parts. She reveals that, in many cases, she will do a procedure that sounds an awful lot like the illegal partial birth abortion because it gives her the best chance of getting the parts she needs.

As you listen to her words, please note that she never expresses any concern for the baby who is killed, or for the mother of the child. It’s clearly not about the best procedure to provide the lowest risk to the mother; it is all about getting the baby body parts that PP can get money for.

The folks at the Center for Medical Progress tell us that this is the first of many videos and other documents that they will be releasing to show exactly how callous Planned Parenthood abortionists really are and how Planned Parenthood is profiting from the grisly trade in this human body parts business.

We will bring you more information, but please watch the video. See for yourself how Planned Parenthood abortionists have absolutely no problem talking about the death and dismemberment of innocent human beings created by God—all the while taking bites of food and drinking wine.
