“The Los Angeles Superior Court order issued Tuesday prohibits the Center for Medical Progress from releasing any video of three high-ranking Stem Express officials taken at a restaurant in May.”
Reasonable expectation of privacy in a restaurant? When asked by Hannity about local laws David Daleiden, founder of the Center For Medical Progress said, “The California law is about confidential communications not those that can be overheard by anyone walking by, such as a situation in a crowded restaurant like the situations in the two previous tapes.” DailyCaller
StemExpress is playing litigious delay and stall tactics.
A temporary restraining order has been issued preventing an anti-abortion group from releasing any video of leaders of a California company that provides fetal tissue to researchers. The group is the same one that previously shot viral covert video of a Planned Parenthood leader discussing the sale of aborted fetuses for research.
The Los Angeles Superior Court order issued Tuesday prohibits the Center for Medical Progress from releasing any video of three high-ranking StemExpress officials taken at a restaurant in May. It appears to be the first legal action prohibiting the release of a video from the organization.
The Center for Medical Progress has released three surreptitiously recorded videos to date that have riled anti-abortion activists. The Senate is expected to vote before its August recess on a Republican effort to bar federal aid to Planned Parenthood in the aftermath of the videos’ release.
In a statement Wednesday, center leader David Daleiden said StemExpress was using “meritless litigation” to cover up an “illegal baby parts trade.”
“The Center for Medical Progress follows all applicable laws in the course of our investigative journalism work,” he said. AP
In response to the distributing videos released about Planned Parenthood’s involvement in selling body parts of aborted babies, Students For Life of America (SFLA) launched “WomenBetrayed” hosting rallies to demand states investigate, prosecute, and defund Planned Parenthood. In 75 cities pro-lifers held rallies against Planned Parenthood under the banner #WomenBetrayed.
Women have been betrayed by Planned Parenthood. Families have been deceived. And the smallest among us have been the ultimate victims of Planned Parenthood’s horrific business schemes. Quite frankly, we’ve had enough. It’s time to relieve Planned Parenthood of our taxpayer dollars. (SPLA)
The 3rd Planned Parenthood video is titled “Human Capital – Episode 1: Planned Parenthood’s Black Market in Baby Parts”
Now, the pro-life advocates behind the investigative videos have released a third video that catches Planed Parenthood doctors Katherine Sheehan and Savita Ginde discussing and arranging for the sale of aborted baby body parts. Lifenews
If there was no profit motive here, as the law stipulates there must not be, then there would be no incentive for the most profitable form to “see how much we can get out of it.”
For 6 months, Holly O’Donnell worked as a “procurement technician” at StemExpress.
The video features 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. That’s the company that acts as a middleman and purchases the body parts of aborted babies from Planned Parenthood to sell to research universities and other places.
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 six 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. Lifenews
The Obama administration paid Dr. Deborah Nucatola the abortionist for ‘expert’ advice on ensuring that children are ‘born healthy.’
Deborah Nucatola—the Planned Parenthood doc with the stone-cold heart and the lucrative skill of “crushing” babies in just the right spot—has been advising the Obama administration on family planning policy since 2010.
From April 2010 through April 2014, Nucatola was one of several experts the U.S. Health and Human Services Office of Population Affairs (OPA) and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Division of Reproductive Health tasked with creating federal guidelines for “quality family planning services.” A member of the “Expert Work Group” and the “Technical Panel on Clinical Women’s Services,” Nucatola was actively engaged in the “multistage process” that produced the government’s 2014report, “Providing Quality Family Planning Services” (QFP).
Her responsibilities as a “technical” consultant and an “expert” included analyzing research summaries and professional advisories, providing “individual feedback” on the government’s initial recommendations, “reviewing” the CDC-OPA staff’s “core recommendations,” giving her expert “opinion,” and then approving the recommendations. (See the report’s appendices for the names of Expert Work Group members and technical experts, and detailed descriptions of the experts’ involvement in formulating the report’s recommendations.) […]
Leave it to the Obama administration to tap an abortionist for “expert” advice on ensuring that children are “born healthy”—an abortionist, mind you, who relishes butchering a “17-weeker” and bagging up a tiny infant’s “heart, lung, liver” to sell for a few extra bucks. Federalist
A second video was released by The Center for Medical Progress showing Planned Parenthood Federation of America’s Medical Directors’ Council President Dr. Mary Gatter haggling over payments and offering to use a “less crunchy technique.” Gatter talks about money, she wants to make sure she is not ripped off.
“It has to be big enough that it’s worthwhile for me.”
Page 8 of the transcript there is talk about “the buyer’s” staff in the Planned Parenthood building would be a independent contractor.
Buyer: So, logistically, what would that look like if we were to come in, not come in. We’re paying to- I was always envisioning that our tech would do everything, so that’s less work for you guys. Obviously they’re doing the collecting and shipping and they would also do the consenting. They can also be a clinic float that way, depending on your flow or however that works.
Laurel: Yea, I mean that’s not something to turn down. I think that may well help with flow to decrease the amount of time that they have to take with our staff, and then move them to a different room, then we- I’m trying to strategize about that. We have the three rooms, I don’t think, spacewise it would be an issue.
It is against the law for any clinic to sell fetal remains for money. Planned Parenthood rents space to the procurement company, which is how this arrangement works to get around the law that prohibits the sale of fetal tissue for money.
In the paper “Arguments Against Fetal Tissue Trafficking” the author explains how clinics circumvent the law.
“. . . The research institutes and the abortion clinics have joined with a third party, the fetal tissue wholesaler. The fetal tissue wholesaler pays the abortion clinics a “site fee” to place employees, known as “procurement agents,” who collect various body parts of the aborted fetuses as soon as the abortion process is finished and ship them to various research institutes. By having free access to all the desirable fetal tissue, these agents take the body parts that are requested to various research laboratories and government agencies.
The wholesaler is technically renting the space to harvest the body parts rather than paying for the tissue itself. The abortionist then “donates” the tissues to the wholesalers. At the other end of the transaction, the wholesaler will “donate” the fetal material to researchers but bill them for the cost of retrieval. Thus the business deal is complete.“
“Although the operation is over, the fetus is still a matter of concern. This patient, like most, has signed an extra consent form allowing the extracted material to be used for medical research. Rhonda, a medical assistant who also works for a biological supply company, takes the surgical tray in another room where she uses a plastic colander to strain out the blood, leaving only the separated parts of the fetus. These she places in a glass dish, taking a moment to measure one of the feet against a transparent plastic ruler to establish exact gestational age. Earlier in the day she received her regular fax detailing what body parts are needed by which researchers around the country. The researchers specify preferences for age and, in some cases, sex. Liver, spleen, pancreas, and brain are the organs most often requested…”ClinicQuotes
StemExpress, LLC is mentioned in the Planned Parenthood harvested-baby-parts video as “one of the major” aborted baby parts purchasers. Stem Express has taken down its website for “maintenance.”
StemExpress, the California-based company that serves as a middleman between Planned Parenthood and the organizations that seek body parts harvested from aborted babies, once advertised bulk discounts for baby organs and body parts. A screencap taken from a StemExpress page listing fetal liver products shows that the company openly boasted of bulk buying discounts available to new customers.
“Become a StemExpress customer today to receive 25% off your first order up to $1,000!” blasted an archived web page from 2012. TheFederalist
The casual and callous way she [the Planned Parenthood executive] details how babies can be killed in such a way that their tiny hearts, lungs and livers can be taken and sold for profit is simply horrifying.
You know, we’ve been very good at getting heart, lung, liver, because we know that, so I’m not going to crush that part, I’m going to basically crush below, I’m going to crush above, and I’m going to see if I can get it all intact,” she says, describing how she alters the abortion procedure to best harvest whatever organs are in demand.
This is one of those moments that — as a nation and as a people — we have to ask ourselves, Who are we? Are we really going to tolerate this inhumanity? Are we going to look the other way while babies are brutally killed and organs harvested for profit?’”
These aren’t specimens! These are babies for goodness sake!
Speaker John Boehner announced today that committees in the House of Representatives will take a look at the Planned Parenthood abortion business after a shocking new expose’ video that caught Planned Parenthood’s top doctor describing how the abortion business sells the body parts of aborted babies.
New undercover footage shows Planned Parenthood Federation of America’s Senior Director of Medical Services, Dr. Deborah Nucatola, describing how Planned Parenthood sells the body parts of aborted unborn children and admitting she uses partial-birth abortions to supply intact body parts. LifeNews
A video shows a Planned Parenthood national official describing the sale of fetal body parts from partial-birth abortions. While eating her salad she chats casually with actors posing as buyers from a human bio company describing how Planned Parenthood makes money selling the livers, hearts, and lungs of aborted babies. With extreme heartless callous indifference she describes how the babies are aborted without damaging the organs they want to harvest.
She is making business deals for body parts of aborted babies.
The video is stomach churning.
The video is the result of a two year investigation into practices at Planned Parenthood by The Center for Medical Progress. The original video is over 160 minutes long and can be watched in its entirety here. A transcript can be read here.
In 2012, Planned Parenthood reported receiving a record $542 million in taxpayer support. “Planned Parenthood’s net revenue increased 5% to total of $1.21 billion in its organizational fiscal year ending on June 30, 2013, according to its new Annual Report 2012-2013, and about 45% of that revenue–$540.6 million–was provided by taxpayer-funded government health services grants.” CNSNews
Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal has launched an investigation of the Planned Parenthood abortion business, after a shocking new expose’ video that caught Planned Parenthood’s top doctor describing how the abortion business sells the body parts of aborted babies.
New undercover footage shows Planned Parenthood Federation of America’s Senior Director of Medical Services, Dr. Deborah Nucatola, describing how Planned Parenthood sells the body parts of aborted unborn children and admitting she uses partial-birth abortions to supply intact body parts.
In the video, Nucatola is at a business lunch with actors posing as buyers from a human biologics company. As head of PPFA’s Medical Services department, Nucatola has overseen medical practice at all Planned Parenthood locations since 2009. She also trains new Planned Parenthood abortion doctors and performs abortions herself at Planned Parenthood Los Angeles up to 24 weeks.
Planned Parenthood apparently removed from their website a letter that stated:
The decision to have an abortion is personal. Though your reasons may be complicated and private, you’re not alone. As religious leaders from a number of religious traditions, we’re here to support you in your decision.
Many people wrongly assume that all religious leaders disapprove of abortion. The truth is that abortion is not even mentioned in the Scriptures—Jewish or Christian—and there are clergy and people of faith from all denominations who support women making this complex decision.
The word abortion is never used in the Bible. However the Word of God is not silent from a moral standpoint on taking a baby’s life inside the womb.
