Pro-lifers want investigation into abortion doc who used kitchen tools in abortions
Pro-lifers are calling for the investigation of a Planned Parenthood abortion doctor caught talking about fetal research on secretly recorded tape. Lisa Harris, who once wrote that she “does society’s dirty work”, also bragged that she felt liberated after using “ordinary kitchen tools” to perform legal abortions.
Lisa Harris the Planned Parenthood abortionist, writes in the Atrium, a Report of the Northwestern Medical Humanities and Bio-Ethics Program in 2014:
“I set down the tray and pour the bowl’s contents into a hand held kitchen strainer. It is an ordinary kitchen strainer that I purchased at the bed and bath store…I run water through the strainer to clear away the blood and empty the strained contents onto another tray. The patient whose abortion I have just done was early in her pregnancy…I move the tissue into a square Pyrex baking dish…I use ordinarily kitchen tools…I do society’s dirty work….I turn women into non-mothers…(I know full well that most women seeking abortions are mothers…)And fetuses die at my hands.”
In leaked undercover video footage from the Center for Medical Progress, received this week by GotNews.com after being put online by a hacker, the Michigan Planned Parenthood abortion doctor was recorded telling a NAF audience that a baby’s head sometimes gets stuck when dismembering them in an abortion and that she is concerned about the regulations that govern research.
Saynsumthn has previously reported that in a separate recording, Harris told CMP that all “research projects” at the Planned Parenthood affiliate she is with go through their VP of medical services. She also said that, “All research projects pay – pay for the effort but there’s never been like a per specimen fee.” In addition Harris expressed concern that “research regulations” “get in the way.”
As a result of her statements, 50 pro-life activists gathered in front of the Ann Arbor Planned Parenthood where Harris works to call for Michigan’s Attorney General to investigate the abortionist. Planned Parenthood has of course denied any wrongdoing but pro-life activists are not convinced.
“I think there’s evidence to the allegations we’re making and we believe this is something that needs to be looked into,” Monica Miller, director of Citizens for a Pro-Life Society who organized the event, told MLive.com.
“In the video it says quite clearly what she’s doing,” Miller added.
Planned Parenthood receives $528 million federal tax dollars annually and pressure is mounting to have them defunded after a steady flow of shocking video has been made public from the Center for Medical Progress and other sources.
“I don’t believe Planned Parenthood could be what it is today without the millions of dollars they get from the federal and state government,” Pro-lifer Lynn Mills, who also helped organize the press conference, said. “They need to be cut off.”
As Saynsumthn has previously reported, this abortionist once described doing a late-term abortion while pregnant. Harris also admitted that abortion procedures are violent, that abortion victims really do look like pro-lifers’ photos and has said that re-assembling fetal body parts often elicits “feelings of awe” in abortionists.
Mills, who is the director of Pro-Life Detroit, told Saynsumthn that she would like for every pro-lifer who reads this story to contact the Michigan Attorney General and request that Planned Parenthood and Harris be investigated, “The words that came directly out of Lisa Harris’ mouth alone should prompt an investigation.” Mills said.
“Harris herself challenges fetal tissue regulations and how they restrict what she can do. In past interviews with media outlets that I have listened to, Harris has bemoaned all abortion restrictions claiming abortion operators should be able to self-govern and self-rule. Well, is this what you get when you self-rule? Abortionists selling baby parts?”
“I urge concerned citizens everywhere to call 517-373-1101 and tell Attorney General Bill Schuette to launch an investigation,” Mills added.
A representative from state Senator Patrick Colbeck’s office said the senator has forwarded the video to the attorney general and requested that he investigate the matter further. Colbeck has also introduced a bill to defund Planned Parenthood in Michigan by halting any state money flowing to the organization, according to MLive.com.
