A pro-life medical ethics group released a fourth video in its undercover Planned Parenthood series on Thursday, adding further (at times, graphic) evidence to the charge that the largest provider of abortions in America is engaging in the trafficking of aborted babies’ body parts.
In a statement on Thursday, the Center for Medical Progress (CMP) indicates that its newly released “undercover footage shows Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountains’ Vice President and Medical Director, Dr. Savita Ginde, negotiating a fetal body parts deal, agreeing multiple times to illicit pricing per body part harvested, and suggesting ways to avoid legal consequences.”
CMP notes that “Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountains (PPRM) is a wealthy, multi-state Planned Parenthood affiliate that does over 10,000 abortions per year. PPRM has a contract to supply aborted fetal tissue to Colorado State University in Fort Collins.”
As in the three previously released videos, actors purporting to work for a human tissue procurement company meet and discuss their needs with Planned Parenthood representatives.
Dr. Ginde, the PPRM medical director, is very cooperative in seeking out ways to get the buyers what they want. At one point, she admits her abortionists need to improve their skills for the sake of harvesting more intact body parts and be “more gentle.”
“We’d have to do a little bit of training with the providers or something to make sure that they don’t crush” fetal organs during 2nd trimester abortions,” says the abortion doctor.
She tells the buyers that oftentimes, fully intact fetuses are removed following the dilation and evacuation procedures.
“Ginde also suggests ways for Planned Parenthood to cover-up its criminal and public relations liability for the sale of aborted body parts,” CMP reports. “Putting it under ‘research’ gives us a little bit of an overhang over the whole thing,” she says.
“It makes it look better?” a buyer asks.
“Yeah,” she replies. “And in the public I think it makes a lot more sense for it to be in the research vein, than, I’d say business venture.”
“That’s how we talk about it,” a buyer affirms.
“Yeah!” exclaims Ginde.
Ginde also gives a word of caution: “If you have someone in a really anti [-abortion] state who’s going to be doing this for you, they’re probably going to get caught.”
The doctor also assures the buyers, nonetheless, that the PPRM attorney has got the legal side of what they do covered. “He’s got it figured out that he knows that even if, because we talked to him in the beginning, you know, we were like, ‘We don’t want to get called on,’ you know, ‘selling fetal parts across states.’”
The buyers ask: “And you feel confident that they’re building those layers?” Ginde replies: “I’m confident that our Legal will make sure we’re not put in that situation.”
After the meeting, the doctor takes the buyers into a lab at the Denver facility, where they are shown fetal body parts.
One asks a Planned Parenthood medical assistant, who is working with aborted babies’ body parts: “What crack was that? The little bits of the skull?” and receives an affirmative response.
Ginde states that regarding the pricing of body parts, “I think a per-item thing works a little better, just because we can see how much we can get out of it.”
CMP notes that the sale or purchase of human fetal tissue is a federal felony punishable by up to 10 years in prison or a fine of up to $500,000 (42 U.S.C. 289g-2). Federal law also requires that no alteration in the timing or method of abortion be done for the purposes of fetal tissue collection (42 U.S.C. 289g-1).
As the buyers and Planned Parenthood workers identify body parts from the last fetus in the path lab, a Planned Parenthood medical assistant announces: “Another boy!”
