Here is the third Planned Parenthood video. Much of it is an interview with Holly O’Donnell, a phlebotomist (someone who draws blood for a living) and former procurement technician at Stem Express.
The video is largely review with an interview from a former Stem Express employee. Toward the end, though, an undercover camera catches the horrifying reality of organ harvesting. The hands and feat of dismembered fetuses are clearly visible.
The humanity of the unborn is becoming impossible to deny.
Here is a press release on the new documentary series, of which this video is the first episode:
The first episode in a new documentary web series features a woman who once worked in Planned Parenthood clinics describing the profit motive involved in Planned Parenthood’s sale of aborted fetal body parts, and includes new admissions from top-level Planned Parenthood leadership about the illicit pricing structure.
The “Human Capital” documentary web series is produced by The Center for Medical Progress and integrates expert interviews, eyewitness accounts, and real-life undercover interactions to tell the story of Planned Parenthood’s commercial exploitation of aborted fetal tissue. Episode 1, “Planned Parenthood’s Black Market in Baby Parts,” launches today at: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xw2xi…
Episode 1 introduces Holly O’Donnell, a licensed phlebotomist who unsuspectingly took a job as a “procurement technician” at the fetal tissue company and biotech start-up StemExpress in late 2012. “I thought I was going to be just drawing blood, not procuring tissue from aborted fetuses,” says O’Donnell, who fainted in shock on her first day of work in a Planned Parenthood clinic when suddenly asked to dissect a freshly-aborted fetus during her on-the-job training.
For 6 months, O’Donnell’s job was to identify pregnant women at Planned Parenthood who met criteria for fetal tissue orders and to harvest the fetal body parts after their abortions. O’Donnell describes the financial benefit Planned Parenthood received from StemExpress: “For whatever we could procure, they would get a certain percentage. The main nurse was always trying to make sure we got our specimens. No one else really cared, but the main nurse did because she knew that Planned Parenthood was getting compensated.”
Episode 1 also shows undercover video featuring the Vice President and Medical Director of Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountains (PPRM) in Denver, CO, Dr. Savita Ginde. PPRM is one of the largest and wealthiest Planned Parenthood affiliates and operates clinics in Colorado, New Mexico, Wyoming, and Nevada. Standing in the Planned Parenthood abortion clinic pathology laboratory, where fetuses are brought after abortions, Ginde concludes that payment per organ removed from a fetus will be the most beneficial to Planned Parenthood: “I think a per-item thing works a little better, just because we can see how much we can get out of it.”
I wrote for Christianity Today a couple of weeks ago on Stem Express and how you can add human cells to your wish list!
It could be said that this video may be more of an indictment on Stem Express than it is on Planned Parenthood. However, it must be noted that Stem Express would not be picking apart these babies if it were not for the provision of Planned Parenthood.
What seems to be true, regardless of your political persuasions, is this: Planned Parenthood may have reason, because of the money that changes hands during fetus donation, to encourage abortions rather than discourage them.
No financial gain is found in the discouragement of abortion. It seems, however, that there may be some financial gain for them if they do encourage abortion.
There are somewhere between seven to nine more videos to be released over the next couple of months. At what point will pro-choice advocates stop focusing on the splicing of the videos and start focusing on the splicing of the unborn?
Time will tell, but the sooner they do, the sooner we can save more babies from this horrible fate.
