The Center for Medical Progress’ eighth video centers on a conversation they have in a public place with Stem Express CEO Cate Dyer. The company was originally operated out of Dyer’s home in rural El Dorado County until she grew it into a very lucrative a multi-million dollar company located in a 19,000-square-foot building in downtown Placerville.
“I got really comfortable with tissue and organs,” Dyer once said.
The fetal tissue procurement company tried unsuccessfully to get a restraining order against the pro-life group to censor their first amendment right to release this footage.
On August 21, a California judge lifted a temporary restraining order, and today CMP showed what it had.
In this video release, the CEO of StemExpress expresses an interest in fetal livers which she claims they get a lot of requests for.
“Specifically liver tissue because that’s such an area of demand for us,” Dyer says.
According to CMP, StemExpress, LLC, is a major buyer of fetal tissue from Planned Parenthood which tells the actors that she gets a lot of requests for baby livers. This is reflective in what StemExpress advertises on their website and in a Stem Express catalog that has since been removed.
But, a cached version still exists. For that reason, the screen grabs will look a little distorted than if the actual PDF was available.
In the 2013-2014 Stem Express Catalog, owner Cate Dyer, CEO brags that they are the largest provider of fetal tissue globally:
A current (2015) screen grab off the Stem Express fetal liver order page on their website shows how lucrative the selling of human baby livers can be:
More on this here.
Ironically, when Dyer was asked by CMP what amount of fetal body parts would keep her lab happy she responded, “another 50 livers a week” would not be enough.
“I mean it’s you know volume for us,” Dyer points out.
“We’re working with almost like triple digit number clinics. So it’s a lot of volume – and we still need more…it’s a lot. So I don’t think you’re going to hit capacity with us anytime in the next ten years,” she added.
She later notes, “Planned Parenthood has volume, because they are a volume institution.”
PLANNED PARENTHOOD SUPPORT:
Stem Express said they terminated their relationship with Planned Parenthood after CMP began exposing the depraved baby parts operation weeks ago. However, in this conversation with StemExpress CEO Cate Dyer, Vice President of Corporate Development and Legal Affairs Kevin Cooksy, and Procurement Manager Megan Barr they admit getting lots of support from Planned Parenthood.
Asked if they feel supported from Planned Parenthood prez Cecile Richards and Planned Parenthood Federation of America Senior Director of Medical Services, Dr. Deborah Nucatola who once admitted she would “crush above” or “crush below” the unborn child to protect the specific baby organ she wanted to procure, Dyer responded, “Oh yeah everyone at PPFA [Planned Parenthood Federation of America] and the affiliates.”
As shocking as it should sound, Dyer admits the company gets “a lot” of intact fetuses.
“Oh yeah, I mean if you had intact cases, which we’ve done a lot. We sometimes ship those back to our lab in its entirety…So, that would also be great if you have those. Because, again the procurement for us I mean it can go really sideways depending on the facility and then our samples are destroyed and we’re like “really?” This was all so much work and then just to have them be destroyed is awful.”
STAFF AND BACTERIA IN CLINICS:
In addition to her admission of procuring intact fetuses which implied the baby might have been aborted alive, and allowed to die a violation of federal law, Dyer says that there are bacterial problems inside many clinics.
“I’ve seen really rampant – Rampant problems with bacteria in certain clinics. Some where you’re kind of like in question of really should they, really you know.
“I’ve seen staff in certain clinics. I mean I’ve seen all sorts of things come out of clinics,” she said.
Dyer also agrees that payments to abortion clinics for fetal body parts should be financially beneficial to them. It is a violation of federal law to sell human fetal baby parts for profit.
The Stem Express CEO asks CMP who she thinks are buyers for a Biotech firm, if they think there are [abortion] clinics out that have been burned, or feel like they’re doing work for research and that isn’t profitable for them.
And then she responds, “I don’t see that either…I haven’t seen that.”
StemExpress publishes a flyer for Planned Parenthood clinics that promises “Financial Profits” and “fiscal rewards” for clinics that supply aborted fetal tissue. It is endorsed by Planned Parenthood Mar Monte Chief Medical Officer Dr. Dorothy Furgerson.
CHOPPING UP BABIES NOT FOR EVERYONE:
Dyer also reveals that the aborted baby body parts industry is not for everyone:
“So many physicians are like, ‘Oh I can totally procure tissue,’ and they can’t,” she tells CMP, seeming to indicate that abortion doctors must do the procedure in a special way to obtain useable fetal parts. Federal law requires that no alteration in the timing or method of abortion be done for the purposes of fetal tissue collection (42 U.S.C. 289g-1).
ACADEMIC LABS FREAK OUT ABOUT FETAL BODY PARTS:
In the video, Dyer notes that many academic labs do not like to get fetal body parts because they look like babies.
“It’s almost like they don’t want to know where it comes from,” she tells CMP.
“Where they’re like, we need limbs but no hands and feet need to be attached.”
“They want you to take it all off, like, ‘make it so that we don’t know what it is,’ ” she said.
“But, we know what it is,” she said nervously giggling.
“And, they’re lab techs freak out and have meltdowns,”
The Stem Express head points out that many of the lab techs at Universities get into other areas of research do they don’t have to publish papers admitting they used fetal tissue.
SHIPPING ISSUES FOR FETAL TISSUE BODY PARTS
Dyer notes that fetal tissue is very fragile calling it “insanely fragile.”
“It’s the hardest thing in the world to ship,” she says.
In speaking about intact fetal heads, Dyer jokes, “Tell the lab it’s coming so they don’t open the box and go Oh God!”
StemExpress is a for-profit biotech supply company that has been partnered with Planned Parenthood clinics across the country to purchase human fetal parts since its founding in 2010. StemExpress’ Medical Director, Dr. Ronald Berman, is an abortion doctor for Planned Parenthood Mar Monte.
The sale or purchase of human fetal tissue is a federal felony punishable by up to 10 years in prison or a fine of up to $500,000 (42 U.S.C. 289g-2). The Sacramento Business Journal reported in June that StemExpress has an annual revenue of $4.5 million.
The video is the eighth released by The Center for Medical Progress in its investigative journalism study of Planned Parenthood’s sale of aborted baby parts.
A response to the video published by Planned Parenthood on Twitter claims the claims are fake:
“StemExpress is the ‘weakest link’ that unravels Planned Parenthood’s baby parts chain–they readily admit the profit-motive that Planned Parenthood and their proxies have in supplying aborted baby parts,” notes David Daleiden, Project Lead for CMP.
“Congress and law enforcement should immediately seize all fetal tissue files from StemExpress and all communications and contracts with Planned Parenthood. The evidence that Planned Parenthood profits from the sale of aborted baby parts is now overwhelming, and not one more dime of taxpayer money should go to their corrupt and fraudulent criminal enterprise.”
Stem Express responded to the video by issuing a statement which reads in part:
In a “preview” video released immediately following the court’s ruling, the criminal defendants claim StemExpress “admitted” to receiving “intact fetuses” from Planned Parenthood. However, a cursory review of the unedited video or transcript reveals that the entire conversation was unequivocally discussing “intact” fetal livers, which are used by StemExpress for the development of isolated cells that are urgently needed by scientists and medical researchers working to cure cancer, diabetes and Alzheimer’s disease. In fact, CMP itself has previously acknowledged that this portion of the conversation refers solely to fetal livers, but nonetheless continues to lodge unsupported false accusations at StemExpress.
StemExpress’s CEO, Cate Dyer, added the following personal response to these latest allegations:
Consistent with the company’s prior public statements, StemExpress has never requested, received or provided to a researcher an ‘intact fetus.’ CMP’s and Daleiden’s continued lies reflect a sad attempt to malign StemExpress and me personally. As anyone can see and read, the entire discussion was, in fact, about ‘intact livers,’ which are used by StemExpress to develop and purify isolated cells used by our customers to support their critical scientific research. My use of the term ‘intact cases’ is a medical term of art that refers solely to ‘intact livers,’ as there was absolutely no mention of ‘intact fetuses’ at any point in over two hours of illegally recorded video.”
StemExpress vows to pursue a claim of damages against CMP and David Daleiden for what they describe as, “their illegal conduct.”
