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:

Daylesteinberg

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.”

PP Lied GosnellBut 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.”

Planned Parenthood Mar Monte San Jose

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:

Planned Parenthood Mar Monte 100 million 990

That same report lists Dorothy L Furgerson as the Chief Medical Director.

Does this name ring a bell? It should, Dorothy L Furgerson endorsed StemExpress and was listed on their brochure claiming a financial profit for those who utilize their services.

In addition to Furgerson, the 990 lists “physicians” Abraham C Cabebe and Karen Webster.

A 2008, 2009 and 2010 990 for the same Planned Parenthood affiliate lists Ronald Berman and Jesse Joplin.

Ron Berman Planned Parenthood STemExpress

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.”

Center for Medical Progress Dana Loesch

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.

StemExpress worker on harvesting Planned Parenthood’s aborted babies “you can hear screaming -it’s morbid”

Last month, the Center for Medical Progress released their the third undercover video from the Human Capital – Episode 1: Planned Parenthood’s Black Market in Baby Parts.

The video featured a former employee of Stem Express, one of the procurement companies for Planned Parenthood’s grisly baby part harvesting operation.

Holly Odonnell Stem Express Planned Parenthood

Holly O’Donnell is a licensed phlebotomist who tells CMP that she unsuspectingly took the job as a “procurement technician” in late 2012 after responding to an ad. As a procurement tech, O’Donnell’s job was to identify pregnant patients matching the specifications of StemExpress customers and to harvest the fetal body parts from their abortions.

O’Donnell emphasized to CMP that the partnership Stem Express has with Planned parenthood gives them a financial benefit.

Holly ODonnell StemExpress Planned Parenthood

In the second episode, released today entitled, “Inside the Planned Parenthood Supply Site,” CMP highlights O’Donnell’s first hand account of the daily practice of fetal body parts harvesting in Planned Parenthood abortion clinics, describing tissue procurement workers’ coordination with abortion providers, the pressure placed on patients, and disregard for patient consent.

O’Donnell claims that StemExpress supervisors instructed her about approaching pregnant women at Planned Parenthood for fetal tissue “donations.”

It’s not an option, it’s a demand,” O’Donnell told CMP.

O’Donnell says the StemExpress techs working in Planned Parenthood clinics sometimes harvested fetal parts without obtaining consent from the patients: “If there was a higher gestation, and the technicians needed it, there were times when they would just take what they wanted. And these mothers don’t know. And there’s no way they would know.

Federal requires that patients consent to the tissue donation subsequent to consenting to the abortion procedure (42 U.S.C. 289g-1).

According to O’Donnell, Planned Parenthood gave StemExpress workers access to patient records and schedules so that the harvesting company could plan for the days when patient “supply” would be greatest. “They give you a sheet, and it’s everybody for that day, who’s coming in for an ultrasound, who’s coming in for an abortion, medical or a late-term abortion,” O’Donnell explains.

She said she was even given a sheet from patients at Planned Parenthood just seeking a pregnancy test, saying they were considered part of the supply: “Pregnancy tests are potential pregnancies, therefore potential specimens. So it’s just taking advantage of the opportunities,” O’Donnell claimed.

POC STemExpress abortion

According to O’Donnell, an average day began by her approaching the Planned Parenthood nurse for the list to see if there were any fetuses that met the criteria StemExpress needed that say, “So let’s say I needed a 15 week fetus,” she begins. Saying that the nurse would then look to see what they had coming in that day.

Planned Parenthood Mar Monte Fresno

O’Donnell said she built her relationship with a Planned Parenthood in Fresno.

“It really wore me down, the environment, it’s morbid, like, you can feel it.”

“You can hear screaming, you can hear crying,
” she said.

O’Donnell said Fresno was one of Stem Express’ “high volume clinics.”

Lots of abortions- lots,” she said in her description.

O’Donnell described the women she worked for as “cold” and uncaring.

NON CONSENT FOR FETAL TISSUE DONATION

Planned Parenthood consented abortion tissue

O’Donnell said she would be given access to women prior to their abortion to have them “consented” for the donation of their unborn child’s organs.

Some of the women she was allowed to speak to were not even certain they wanted an abortion, but, in order to procure the organs they needed, she was permitted to speak to them.

While at the Fresno Planned Parenthood O’Donnell recalled what she noted as a “very gestated patient” who had a a 2 day abortion process where the abortionists inserts laminaria to expand the cervix and then came back for the abortion.

She said she attempted to “consent” her for a donation of the late term baby, but the women said “no.

O’Donnell said she did not pressure her but the next day she was told “get her – get her.” She then went on to say that even though the woman had never consented to donate her baby, StemExpress got the child anyway.

“And, I’m like, so basically you just went in there and took her blood and you’re going to be taking her fetus without her knowing?”

She called their process terrifying.

Viciously Fast

Ron Berman Planned Parenthood STemExpress

O’Donnell mentions StemExpress doctor Ron Berman a Medical Director for the fetal procurement company, who is also a Planned Parenthood abortion doctor working in California, noting he had a reputation for going, “viciously fast.”

If we didn’t watch him, we would lose our specimens, it was that fast,” she said.

O’Donnell said that Dr. Berman would get mad, “if there wasn’t a girl in the room. He would pace the hallways if there wasn’t something to do. It’s almost like he wanted to do it, “ she said.

“There was a few times where if he was working and I had a girl that did not want to get it, she felt she has to. I wanted to tell her to not go to this clinic.”

She said 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.”

David Daleidan Hannity

In an interview on Fox with Sean Hannity lead investigator for the Center for Medical Progress David Daleiden said that Dr. Berman has written about how frequently you get a born alive infant or a baby who comes out alive during an abortion where organ harvesting is the goal.

Calling it the “dirty little secret of the abortion industry.”

( Note: also read: The Dreaded Complication – Babies Born Alive From Abortion )

Daleiden released this statement on CMP’s latest video saying, “Experiences like Holly O’Donnell’s show that Planned Parenthood’s abortion and baby parts business is not a safe place where vulnerable women can be cared for, but a harvesting ground for saleable human ‘product.’ Taxpayer subsidies to Planned Parenthood’s barbaric abortion business should be revoked immediately, and law enforcement and other elected officials must act decisively to determine the full extent of Planned Parenthood’s offensive practices and hold them accountable to the law.”
