Disemboweling unborn babies in abortion described by fetal procurement company exposed in new Planned Parenthood
The ninth video in the Planned Parenthood baby parts scandal focuses on Advanced Bioscience Resources, Inc. (ABR), described by CBR as, “the small and secretive company that has harvested and sold fetal body parts at Planned Parenthood clinics longer than any other entity.”
During a long conversation CBR had with Perrin Larton, the Procurement Manager for ABR at what appears to be a trade show with the acronym ISSCR, Larton describes details about the abortion procedure.
Larton is listed in a 2011 ISSCR program flyer:
In the video, the CBR representative Tells Larton that he is interested in whole specimens for mice research, “I would like to lean more on the side of whole organ transplants for the mice…” he says.
To which she responds, “The problem with that is they don’t come out intact. There’s not closed abdomen. It’s always torn apart,” she says.
“The whole point is not to have a live birth…” the ABR rep adds.
Later in the conversation Larton explains how the unborn child is disembowled, “The abdomen is always ripped open…Everything will just get ripped up,” she says of the child’s organs.
Explaining, ““Whenever we have a smooth portion of liver, we think that’s good…”
Adding, “Just the instruments they go in to pull…it’s just whatever presents first unfortunately and I don’t know why, a lot of times the abdomen presents first and they just go in and start pulling…They’re just there to end a pregnancy. And we cannot ask them to change a process.”
However, the ABR procurement expert does explain that the babies can be delivered “intact” after an abortion:
“I literally have had women come in and they’ll go in the O.R. and they’re back out in 3 minutes, and I’m going, ‘What’s going on?’ Oh yeah, the fetus was already in the vaginal canal whenever we put her in the stirrups, it just fell out,” she explains of situations where there has been a great enough degree of cervical dilation to procure an intact fetus.
According to CBR, Advanced Bioscience Resources was founded in 1989 by CEO Linda Tracy and charges $340 per second-trimester fetal tissue specimen.
In 2013, public records show the organization had net income of just over a million dollars.
Tracey told NPR that ABR procures fetal tissue from hospitals and clinics that perform abortions, paying $30 to $100 a specimen. And adding that her researchers typically pay between $340 and $550 for the fetal organs.
In another portion of the video CMP speaks to Dr. Katharine Sheehan, the long-time medical director of Planned Parenthood of the Pacific Southwest until 2013 that her abortion clinic has been using ABR for a number of years.
Sheehan tells actors posing as a new human biologics company that at Planned Parenthood Pacific Southwest, “We have already a relationship with ABR.” Sheehan explains, “We’ve been using them for over 10 years, really a long time, just kind of renegotiated the contract. They’re doing the big collections for government-level collections and things like that.”
When one of the actors negotiates, “We return a portion of our fees to the clinics.”
Sheehan responds eagerly, “Right, get a toe in and make it, make a pro–alright.”
