An eighth video detailing the sales of aborted baby body parts is more shocking than any of the others, with a StemExpress L.L.C. CEO laughing about how fully intact babies are shipped to the lab. Here is a preview:
“Tell the lab it’s coming. You know, open the box and go ‘Oh my God,’” Cate Dyer, StemExpress’ CEO, said with a laugh. Dyer said there are a lot of cases where intact babies are sent to the lab.
The latest video went online Aug. 21, immediately after a judge lifted a restraining order against the Center for Medical Progress. StemExpress, which procures aborted babies from Planned Parenthood, filed a lawsuit to block information released in the undercover operation. A California court blocked the Center for Medical Progress in July from releasing videos of some StemExpress meetings. It was a narrow restraining order, so the group released other videos while the court ruled on the StemExpress information.
Reaction to the videos has been swift, with StemExpress cutting ties with Planned Parenthood and two congressional committees launching separate investigations. A House committee is considering whether the non-profit abortion provider has broken federal law when doctors, admittedly by Planned Parenthood officials, change procedures to gain better body parts to sell. Another committee, the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, is probing whether the Obama Administration provided grants to Planned Parenthood through the Department of Health and Human Services that ultimately supported the sales of tissue and organs from aborted babies.
Five states have revoked taxpayer funding for Planned Parenthood since the first video’s release. Those states include Utah, Arkansas, New Hampshire, Alabama and Louisiana. The latest official to state concern is Iowa’s governor, Terry Branstad, who has ordered a review of funding for the non-profit.
