On Wednesday’s Dana Loesch show Center for Medical Progress lead investigator, David Daleiden called what was revealed in his latest video exposing Planned Parenthood’s baby parts operation “Kermit Gosnell activity.”
The latest video, number 7, is horrific and shows eyewitness Holly O’Donnell, a former StemExpress procurement technician describing the day she was called upon to remove brain tissue from a baby born alive, with his heart still beating after a Planned Parenthood abortion.
“It is Kermit Gosnell activity happening at the highest levels of Planned Parenthood,” Daleiden told Loesch.
Gosnell ran the Philadelphia House of Horrors abortion facility and is serving time in prison for severing the spines of babies born alive.
One of the interesting facts that came out about the Gosnell case was that many within the abortion industry knew what he was doing and remained silent.
In fact, according to media reports, leaders from local Planned Parenthood affiliates knew exactly what was going on:
CEO of Planned Parenthood of Southeastern Pennsylvania Dayle Steinberg began her association with Planned Parenthood in 1978 as a graduate intern, joined the full-time staff in 1981, served as director of surgical services from 1986-1992, then served for eight years as senior vice president, and was appointed president and CEO in 2001.
In February of 2010 WHYY reported that Steinberg denied knowing of any of the horrific conditions at Gosnells’ abortion clinic. They wrote: Steinberg: We do anticipate that women who might have scheduled appointments for abortion procedures at the Women’s Medical Society will be calling Planned Parenthood. and then reported, “Steinberg says she knows that Gosnell has provided abortions in Philadelphia for many years, but says she hadn’t heard of any problems at clinic until the allegations surfaced in recent days.”
But later, according to Philly.com : Steinberg said this about Gosnell at a public fundraiser: “Steinberg said that when Gosnell was in practice, women would sometimes come to Planned Parenthood for services after first visiting Gosnell’s West Philadelphia clinic, and would complain to staff about the conditions there.
“’We would always encourage them to report it to the Department of Health,’ Steinberg said as she sat with Steinem before Tuesday’s events.”
Despite her obvious contradictions, the media is publishing statements by Steinberg regarding Planned Parenthood’s gruesome operation. Case in point is an August 2015 op-ed where Steinberg accuses the Center for Medical Progress of editing the videos. She also details the many vaccines made from the body parts of aborted children.
Her words were published by Philly.com which read in part:
Although none of the Planned Parenthood health centers in Pennsylvania is participating in fetal-tissue donation programs, we recognize their deep value. The polio vaccine was developed from fetal kidney cells, as were vaccines against chicken pox, rubella, hepatitis A, and shingles. So, too, were treatments for diseases that include Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s. And thousands of women who chose abortion have found great comfort and a sense of social good from donating fetal tissue to advance medical treatments that save lives. According to an article published by the New England Journal of Medicine, “Virtually every person in this country has benefited from research using fetal tissue. . . By using the public’s unfamiliarity with the history and realities of fetal-tissue research as a back door for attacking Planned Parenthood, abortion opponents have added millions of people to the collateral damage of the abortion wars.”
Daleiden described Planned Parenthood Mar Monte’s Alameda clinic in San Jose, CA., where O’Donnell was when she removed the brains from an intact born alive infant, as the largest Planned Parenthood facility with a $100 MILLION dollar a year budget. (Keep in mind they also receive tax dollars) and their latest (2012) 990 report indicates this is true:
That same report lists Dorothy L Furgerson as the Chief Medical Director.
In addition to Furgerson, the 990 lists “physicians” Abraham C Cabebe and Karen Webster.
Berman is a StemExpress Medical Director who is also a Planned Parenthood abortion doctor accused by former procurement technician, O’Donnell of getting aborted babies, “viciously fast.” Telling CMP investigators that she imagined Dr. Berman literally, “going into the room, lifting the covers, going in, grabbing and walking out. Like that’s how fast it is, it’s ridiculous.”
Daleiden told Loesch that four Congressional committees have opened up investigations into Planned Parenthood. He said lawsuits from StemExpress as well as NAF has not deterred him from releasing some of the most horrific aspects of CMP’s investigation.
Despite the horrifying video evidence, some people still support Planned Parenthood.
For further consideration, the Daily Signal has published a video explaining all of the concerns raised by the videos to date. Watch it here.
