KFOX14 Investigates uncovers new documents alleging the Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center El Paso is buying aborted fetal tissue for research, fetal tissue that may be linked to Planned Parenthood abortions.

From their report:

    A Houston-based attorney, Briscoe Cain, said he obtained the information from a Freedom of Information request. He said he found evidence of four Texas medical schools purchasing fetal tissue from a California bioscience company.

    TTUHSC El Paso is among those listed as purchasing fetal tissue from Advanced Bioscience Resource Center.

    Cain claims the tissue could be coming from abortions at Planned Parenthood because Planned Parenthood gives fetuses to ABR.

    “What can be said that tissue purchased from ABR is from aborted babies,” said Cain.

    Documents given to KFOX14 Investigates show TTUHSC allegedly purchased parts of fetuses from ABR.

    Invoices from ABR to TTUHSC show the school paid at least $4,000- $5,000 for fetal parts/tissue.

    The invoices are dated in 2012, 2013 and 2014 and make reference to 2015 requests.

    The school allegedly purchased fetal livers, spleens and thymuses (it’s a gland in the base of the neck).

    Emails between the researchers and ABR make reference to their specific requests and process for shipping.

    KFOX14 Investigates asked the school what type of research the fetus parts were used for, but did not receive a response.

    In the e-mails obtained, researchers reference using the tissue for “a humanized mouse.”

    “The research being done is humanized mice. Scientists inject the mouse with fetal tissue so the mouse is genetically altered to accept the graphing of human tissue,” said Cain.

    Cain represents the activists that made secret recordings involving Planned Parenthood in Houston. His clients now face charges of tampering with a government record.

    But Cain claims this new discovery of documents brings to question the link between Planned Parenthood abortions and Texas medical schools.

    “Public universities who receive tax dollars are using the tax dollars to purchase these babies’ parts,” said Cain.

    KFOX14 asked TTUHSC for an interview and whether it was aware the aborted tissue may be coming from Planned Parenthood.

    KFOX14 also asked how the school funds those purchases and how much money has been spent buying fetal parts.

    TTUHSC did not answer those questions but sent a statement.

    “Research at Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center El Paso is committed to strictly following all federal and state guidelines. The physicians and scientists at TTUHSC El Paso respect and cherish life. They work tirelessly toward treating patients, as well as developing and finding effective treatments and cures for human diseases,” said Dr. Peter Rotwein, the assistant vice president for research at TTUHSC El Paso.

    It is against federal law to sell human fetal tissue for profit. Tissue can be donated with the woman’s consent.

    Planned Parenthood has claimed it does not sell parts of fetuses but does donate them.

    Some scientists and universities have been working with fetal tissue for years, explaining that it provides invaluable information about the beginning stages of cells.

    Cain said his clients next step is to “pass legislation prohibiting the purchase of fetal tissue in Texas.”

    Gov. Greg Abbott has pledged to support any legislation to prohibit the use of fetal tissue for research.

According to Operation Rescue:

    Many of the documents and e-mails released by Cain were signed by Melissa Farrell, Director of Research for Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast in Houston, Texas, the same Planned Parenthood official who appeared in the fifth video released by the CMP on August 4, 2015.

    The invoices that originated from Planned Parenthood divided their bills into two general categories. First was the “reimbursement for study supplies” which appear to be costs related to the fetal tissue. Reimbursement for hard costs is allowable under the law.

    The second was “consent payments,” which appears to be a designation where Planned Parenthood ‘hid’ the profit. This payment would be illegal.

    In a statement released yesterday, Daleiden explained how Farrell indicated to him how she could cover up the payments or aborted baby specimens in order to make them look like expenses.

    “Farrell admitted on camera to undercover investigators that PPGC ‘worded’ the per-specimen charges for fetal specimens as ‘per consent’ in order to ‘frame’ the project budget in a way that will look legal ‘on paper,’” stated Daleiden.

Planned Parenthood doesn’t want word to get out that they harvest aborted babies for parts

In a series of undercover videos uploaded by the Center for Medical Progress, it has become evident that aborted baby body parts harvesting is not rare – it is widespread across the nation.

The tax funded abortion chain has denied this claim even writing to Congress,

    “our affiliates’ involvement in fetal tissue research is a miniscule part of the work of Planned Parenthood. Despite a deliberate and systematic effort to distort our role, only two of 59 Planned Parenthood affiliates are currently involved with fetal tissue research,” something they state they, “are proud to have a role in.”

    Adding, “The attacks on us have the intended purpose of making it appear that fetal tissue research is an enormous focus of Planned Parenthood. But the simple fact is that 99% of our health centers have no involvement in this work…Today,only one affiliate (in California) is involved with fetal tissue research working through a TPO [tissue procurement organization.] A second affiliate is involved with fetal tissue research working with the University of Washington”

Center for Medical Progress Dana Loesch

But this does not sink with what Planned Parenthood said in CMP’s undercover videos.

One of the hubs for fetal tissue harvesting is California, where the majority of Planned Parenthood centers reportedly have (or had) some kind of procurement agreement with StemExpress, which has since cut ties with Planned Parenthood in the midst of scandal. Despite CMP’s video footage which strongly suggests that Planned Parenthood is selling the organs of babies they abort (and possibly manipulating the procedure – a violation of federal law), California officials have refused to open any investigations into either Planned Parenthood or StemExpress.

Deborah Nucatola, MD, Senior Director of Medical Services for Planned Parenthood Federation of America, told CMP buyers about the “saturation” of fetal body parts harvesting in California:

    “And, I think that- I don’t know anyone who would say no. Everyone’s been looking to do this for a year and a half, the affiliates in California have been very lucky, because in California there is no shortage of possibilities….”

So just how prevalent is the harvesting of fetal body parts? We’ve scanned the transcripts from The Center for Medical Progress for a breakdown…

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.”

CMP Larton ABR fetus intact

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.

Disemboweling :

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 the Federal Procurement Data System website, Advanced Bioscience Resources received a $9900 contract with the Food and Drug Administration for in vitro diagnostic substances.

According to CBR, Advanced Bioscience Resources was founded in 1989 by CEO Linda Tracy and charges $340 per second-trimester fetal tissue specimen.

A quick look at ABR’s 2013 990 Tracey, Larton and ABR’s associates earn a good salary from “procuring” fetuses.

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.”

Witness: Planned Parenthood harvests brains from live baby with beating heart by cutting through his face

Posted in Aborted Baby Body Parts, Aborted baby born alive, Babies Born Alive, Dreaded Complication, Planned Parenthood sells aborted baby parts, stem Express with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on August 19, 2015 by saynsumthn

In the Center for Medical Progress’ 7th video exposing the evil and calculated way Planned Parenthood uses the baby organs from children they abort for experimentation, a former technician describes the removal of organs from a baby who was born alive.

The video recaps previous conversations with several Planned Parenthood workers describing the “intact” way that many “fetuses” are aborted. Their statements reveal a possible intentional manipulation of the abortion procedure, something that is clearly illegal according to federal laws governing the use of human tissue.

In addition, the recap is a reminder that the gruesome Partial Birth Abortion procedure which was made illegal years ago might be the very procedure used by the abortion baby parts organization. The procedure sounds gruesomely similar to partial birth abortion which was outlawed years ago and defended by then Senator Hillary Clinton- see here.

This kind of manipulation of an abortion procedure was denounced by infamous late term abortion doctor, Warren Hern, years prior.

David Daleiden lead investigator for the Center For Medical Progress previously told CNN that Planned Parenthood’s procurement company, Stem Express, “sometimes get fully intact fetuses shipped to their laboratory from the abortion clinics that they work with and that could be prima facie evidence of born alive infants …”

Due to all the public pressure, StemExpress recently said they dropped their relationship with Planned Parenthood.

In the first video released by CMP, Planned Parenthood’s Senior Director of Medical Services Dr. Deborah Nucatola explained how the Planned Parenthood abortionist can “change the presentation” to breech in what some think was describing an illegal Partial Birth Abortion.

In the second release, Planned Parenthood Federation of America’s Medical Directors’ Council President, Dr. Mary Gatter is asked by CMP posing as buyers for a Biotech firm, what she would expect for intact [fetal] tissue?

“Well, why don’t you start by telling me what you’re used to paying!
” Gatter replies.

She explains, “I just don’t want to lowball,” later adding, “But it has to be big enough that it’s worthwhile for me.”

By the 5th video, horrified viewers are taken into the nation’s largest Planned Parenthood abortion facility offering “intact fetal cadavers” which they refer to as “specimens.”

Director of Research for Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast, Melissa Farrell, at the headquarters of Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast in Houston, Texas, tells CMP undercover operatives that they will “deviate from our standard” to procure intact babies.

Alter process intact fetal cadavers Planned Parenthood

“We’re going to potentially have some that will be more or less intact and then some that will not be,” Farrell says.

Yeah if we alter our process and we are able to obtain intact fetal cadavers, then we can make it part of the budget that any dissections are this, and splitting the specimens into different shipments is this, I mean- that’s- it’s all just a matter of line items,” she said.

In video seven, former Blood and Tissue Procurement Technician for StemExpress Holly O’Donnell returns telling CMP about the day she opened her computer to discover that a, “doctor had aborted a fully intact fetus. StemExpress was sending it straight to the lab.”

Perrin Larton

A similar situation appears to be described by another procurement company, Advanced BioScience Resources (ABR) procurement manager, Perrin Larton, who says, “I literally have had women come in and go in the OR and they’re back out in three minutes. And so I thought, what’s going on? Oh yeah, the fetus was already in the vaginal cabal whenever we put her in the stirrups it just fell out.

Ben Van Handel Novogen

The video also features recordings of Dr. Ben Van Handel, the Executive Director of Novogenix Laboratories, LLC. According to CMP, Novogenix is the company that has harvested fetal organs from abortions done by Planned Parenthood Federation of America’s Senior Director of Medical Services, Dr. Deborah Nucatola, in Los Angeles, while ABR is the oldest fetal tissue procurement company and works with Planned Parenthood in San Diego and other clinics around the country. Van Handel admits, “There are times when after the procedure is done that the heart actually is still beating,

Planned Parenthood Mar Monte San Jose

In the shocking video, O’Donnell later describes the harvesting, or “procurement,” of organs from a nearly intact late-term fetus aborted at Planned Parenthood Mar Monte’s Alameda clinic in San Jose, CA.

“‘I want to see something kind of cool,’” O’Donnell says her supervisor asked her.

“The moment I see it, I’m just flabbergasted. This is the most gestated fetus and closest thing to a baby I’ve ever seen,” she said.

The idea that it is cool to see an aborted unborn child is appalling enough. But what O’Donnell describes next make my stomach literally turn. She describes a baby aborted alive!

And she has one of her instruments and she just taps the heart, and it starts beating. And I’m sitting here and I’m looking at this fetus, and its heart is beating, and I don’t know what to think.”

The San Jose Planned Parenthood does abortions up to 20 weeks of pregnancy. Referring to the beating heart of the aborted fetus, O’Donnell called it “electrical currents” causing the baby’s heart to keep beating and remarking, “I don’t know if that constitutes it’s technically dead, or it’s alive.”

O’Donnell said the intent was to procure baby’s brain, That means we’re going to have to cut the head open,” she tells CMP.

She was instructed to “go through the face” of this baby whose heart is beating, in order to procure the brain tissue. She emotionally said, “No, I don’t want to do this.”

Pointing to her chin, O’Donnell details her instructions noting that this Mengle-like order is what caused her to want to quit her job:

    She was told to make “an incision right here, and goes, I would say to maybe a little bit through the mouth. And was like, okay can you go the rest of the way?” She reluctantly agreed.

    “So she gave me the scissors and told me I have to cut through the middle of the face. And I can’t even describe what that feels like. And, I remember picking it up and finishing going through the rest of the [inaudible]. And Jessica picking up the brain and putting it in the container …And, I’m just sitting there like- what did I just do. And that was the moment I knew I couldn’t work with the company any more…I don’t want to be that person.”

State and federal law require that the same treatment be given to an infant born-alive after an abortion as to a normally delivered baby (1 U.S.C. 8, CA Health and Safety Code 123435). California law also prohibits any kind of experimentation on a fetus with a discernible heartbeat (CA Health and Safety Code 123440). StemExpress has been cited in published scientific literature as a source of fetal hearts used for Langendorff perfusion, which keeps a heart beating after it is excised from the body: http://www.hindawi.com/journals/omcl/2015/730683/

Interestingly, a Florida Planned Parenthood lobbyist actually defended not helping babies born alive after abortion. Her exchange with lawmakers in the state was caught on video:
