Fetal tissue docs reveal history’s lessons weren’t learned regarding medical experiments on humans

E-mail evidence on the ghoulish Planned Parenthood baby parts investigations published by a national newspaper reminds us that there are profound lessons not learned in history. When America was confronted with the shocking Nazi medical experiments on the Jews, they were horrified. The media was especially engaged, attending the trials and publishing stories on a regular basis.

Nazi Medical Group on Trial

According to the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum:

    Between 1939 and 1945, at least seventy medical research projects involving cruel and often lethal experimentation on human subjects were conducted in Nazi concentration camps. These projects were carried out by established institutions within the Third Reich and fell into three areas: research aimed at improving the survival and rescue of German troops; testing of medical procedures and pharmaceuticals; and experiments that sought to confirm Nazi racial ideology. More than seven thousand victims of such medical experiments have been documented. Victims include Jews, Poles, Roma (Gypsies), political prisoners, Soviet prisoners of war, homosexuals, and Catholic priests.

Today, medical experiments using human babies are being carried out by established institutions like Planned Parenthood, Stem Express, and many Universities among others. And, just as in the days of the Jewish Holocaust, much of society is silent! The media is by and large ignoring the ongoing investigation into the marketing of aborted baby body parts by Planned Parenthood. So, kudos to the New York Times who, in what appeared to be simple journalistic obligation and not outrage, chose to publish documents from the investigation. They included letters from members of Congress, letters from medical practitioners and email exchanges on tissue requests. The documents hidden inside the PDF upload would appear to be simple pieces of paper until you realize that what is being described on those pages is the dismembering and parceling of human babies.

One heavily redacted email from University of California, San Diego regarding human fetal tissue requests read in part:

    Next time you go to PP [short for Planned Parenthood], can you try to get pancreas as well as liver?

Planned Parenthood Pancreas baby parts abortion

The response:

    On Friday I’m going to PP and I will collect liver tissue…

Another reply:

    Great to hear that, I need a few more fetal pancreas samples…

In another document marked Exhibit 1, also heavily redacted so you cannot read who it is from, reads in part:

    We are now ready to include the skull if you could please include that in our order for tomorrow…

Ironically, that correspondence was dated January 21, 2015 one day prior to the date that memorializes that SCOTUS decision which legalized abortion.

planned-parenthood-video-crush-b

The investigation by a select Congressional panel follows an undercover investigation by the Center for Medical Progress. The pro-life organization secretly recorded high ranking Planned Parenthood medical officials describing how they would obtain the parts of human babies and then sell them for research. In one exchange Planned Parenthood Federation Senior Director of Medical Services, Dr. Deborah Nucatola, is heard describing how she will crush the parts above and below whatever the researchers request:

    The kind of rate-limiting step of the procedure is calvarium. Calvarium—the head—is basically the biggest part. …

    We’ve been very good at getting heart, lung, liver, because we know that, so I’m not gonna crush that part, I’m gonna basically crush below, I’m gonna crush above, and I’m gonna see if I can get it all intact. And with the calvarium, in general, some people will actually try to change the presentation so that it’s not vertex. …

The document marked Exhibit B3 is an almost haunting reenactment of that description, reading:

The Calvarium [ fetal head] is mostly in tact with a tear up the back suture line, but all pieces look to be there.

    The limbs, one upper and one lower are totally in tact, with upper broken at the humerus, and on lower broken right above the knee…

Calvarium PLanned Parenthood baby parts

The horrifying nature of these documents represent a setback for humanity. It wasn’t that long ago when the revelations of medical experiments on humans by the Nazi’s garnered outrage from society. Following the discovery of Nazi experimental laboratories by allied forces, Nazi war crimes tribunals were held leading to the hanging of several Nazi offenders.

A review of those events documented by PBS, which has yet to condemn Planned Parenthood, reads:

    Researchers at Buchenwald concentration camp developed a method of individual execution by injecting Russian prisoners with phenol and cyanide. Experimenters also tested various poisons on the human body by secreting noxious chemicals in prisoners’ food or shooting inmates with poison bullets. Victims who did not die during these experiments were killed to allow the experimenters to perform autopsies.

    To learn if a limb or joint from one person could be successfully attached to another who had lost that limb or joint, experimenters at Ravensbruck amputated legs and shoulders from inmates in useless attempts to transplant them onto other victims. They also removed sections of bones, muscles, and nerves from prisoners to study regeneration of these body parts. Victims suffered excruciating pain, mutilation, and permanent disability as a result.

A series of Nazi letters transcribed by the Jewish Virtual Library are as follows:

Nazi Letters medical experiments

Nazi Letters medical experiments2

In his 1999 Chicago Tribune review of the documentary “Healing by Killing” John Petrakis, he warns us how easy it is for doctors to use experimentation to bend the Hippocratic Oath, writing:

    this sobering documentary, which is based on the book “The Nazi Doctors” by American psychiatrist Robert Jay Lifton (who also provides some vital onscreen narration), should serve as a terrible reminder to doctors around the world just how easy it is to bend the Hippocratic oath.

James Bowman, Resident Scholar at the Ethics and Public Policy Center, summarized the film this way:

    It is perhaps not too much to say that “It was the doctors who paved the way for the holocaust. . .It was medical ideology which led to Hitler and the Nazis,” since there is no reason to suppose that medical ideology is any more benign than the other ideologies which have killed so many in our century. But there is a particularly worrying aspect to any ideology that finds it so easy to stake a claim to “scientific” respectability. It is well to remember that, as Lifton recalls, “We [doctors] are descended from Shamans” and other primitive practitioners of sorcery and magic, so that people are in awe of our “magical powers to kill or heal.” That is why, he says, the Hippocratic oath is full of warnings against doing harm— “as if they knew doctors could be dangerous.”

These lessons not learned from history are a blight on our society. This time, instead of condemning the atrocities against humans, they are being deliberately swept under the rug and labeled innocent “medical research.” The reality is, nothing could be further from the truth!

UNM Doubles Down on Preventing The Truth From Coming Out About Their Abortion Involvement

Posted in Aborted Baby Body Parts, Center for Medical Progress, Protest ABQ with tags , , , , , , , , on April 3, 2016 by saynsumthn

Life Ministries has released the following:

The Select Investigative Panel on Infant Lives has issued 12 additional subpoenas to fetal tissue procurement organizations who continue to refuse full compliance with the panels investigation into the practice of fetal tissue harvesting and the use of the remains in research. According to the NY Times, “Committee investigators say they have uncovered evidence of possible illegal profiteering, questionable consent forms and inappropriate collusion between scientists seeking fetal tissue and abortion providers.”

Three new subpoenas come to New Mexico focused on individuals at the University of New Mexico (UNM) and Southwestern Women’s Options. The subpoenas ask for information such as: studies, research or experiments that individuals have participated in, the number and type of fetal tissue obtained from Southwestern Women’s Options, personnel that procured tissue from SWO and documents proving benefits or compensation for providing fetal tissue.

UNM as a publicly funded institution bears the responsibility of transparency, yet, at every turn they avoid accountability and fight to keep the truth from being exposed about how deeply entrenched their radical abortion agenda is. Whether through our and other pro-life attempts to obtain public records or congressional attempts, UNM just doubles down and is petrified about the consequences of allowing even basic facts about their abortion involvement from seeing the light of day.

Paul ROth EPsey POst Card

Bud Shaver, executive director of Protest ABQ issued the following statement,

    “Just this week, we mailed postcards into Albuquerque neighborhoods because we believe the community deserves to know who is responsible for UNM’s radical abortion agenda they are funding with their tax dollars. Of all of the postcards that we have dropped over the past five years, we had to battle to get this one out. UNM tried to prevent the post office from mailing out our postcards. UNM wields a mighty hand over local businesses and our printer was weary about completing the order for us after being notified by the post office that UNM was attempting to block our postcard from going out but Tara did what she does best and had the post office directly email our printer once all the legal issues were resolved and clarified. Here is what the post office said to our printer, ‘Our legal department says we cannot refuse the mailing if it is brought to us as long it is properly prepared and paid for.’ Free speech trumps UNM and their strangle hold over the truth from reaching the community. This is clearly a battle over hearts and minds and that is why we fight so hard…and never back down.”

Rep. Marsha Blackburn says it best in her statement after issuing this new round of subpoenas,

    “The Select Investigative Panel is working in a thoughtful and thorough manner to find the facts about what exactly is going on at these abortion businesses and procurement organizations. Unfortunately, some of these organizations have so redacted documents — even after being subpoenaed — that it is impossible for us to get the complete picture of what is actually going on. Others have refused to produce documents required under previous subpoenas, and have threatened to withhold additional subpoenaed information.There should be no resistance to letting all the facts come out — but some abortion supporters seem to be clearly rattled with basic facts coming to light. Therefore, in the interest of completing our investigation pursuant to H. Res. 461, we will continue to issue subpoenas when necessary to ensure information can be gathered in a timely fashion.”


Some claim that aborted fetal tissue harvesting is necessary to make strides in medical research and defend the use of aborted fetal cells in vaccines. We maintain the position that utilizing and capitalizing on the death and body parts of innocent children for any reason is immoral and unethical and should therefore cease immediately.

Daleiden: sale of fetal tissue business model for most Planned Parenthood affiliates

Posted in Aborted Baby Body Parts, Center for Medical Progress, Life Dynamics, Planned Parenthood sells aborted baby parts with tags , , , , , , , , on February 28, 2016 by saynsumthn

The mastermind behind undercover videos which has resulted in Planned Parenthood being defunded in several states, claims that the sale of fetal tissue was the business model for most Planned Parenthood affiliates and shares behind the scenes information about the investigation.

David Daleiden Planned Parenthood Center for Medical Progress

The allegations came in a recent interview the Washington Examiner conducted with Center for Medical Progress (CMP) founder, David Daleiden. CMP’s series of undercover footage documented Planned Parenthood officials negotiating for the body parts of babies they aborted. Daleiden, who described his expertise as “hands-on immersion” in “regenerative medicine and stem cell science,” told the news outlet:


    “It’s definitely a little bit of a difficult toss-up between profiteering off of fetal tissue versus doing illegal abortion methods. I think it is easier to prove, and the evidence is best, for Planned Parenthood’s illegal profiteering. In order to prove partial-birth abortion, you kind of need to have the body or someone in the procedure room. But in terms of the for-profit sale of fetal tissue, it’s very clearly the business model Planned Parenthood was using at most of their affiliates.

    “In that model, where you have an outside procurement company sending harvesting technicians into the clinics to do all the work of fetal tissue collection, for Planned Parenthood it’s free. There’s no cost to Planned Parenthood to do that, and yet they’re still getting paid per fetal organ by these companies. There’s no way that model is legally defensible.”

Daleiden is referring to Planned Parenthood’s procurement company Stem Express whose former employee went on record with CMP to tell how she was instructed to cut an aborted baby’s face in half to get brain tissue. As Live Action News previously reported, Holly O’Donnell, shared grisly details about cutting the chin of the baby upward on the child’s face to obtain an intact brain. O’Donnell, who quit shortly after this experience, testified in the CMP video that when her supervisor tapped the baby’s heart, it started beating again.

Daleiden told the Examiner that at the time CMP put out the first video, it had been 15 years since the last time the trafficking of aborted fetal tissue had been in the news. He was referring to a shocking investigation conducted by Life Dynamics in 1997. In his analysis of that investigation, Life Dynamics president, Mark Crutcher noted that the process of selling aborted babies is not illegal.

    “On the surface, this is not illegal. In fact, this process is used in all sorts of medical clinics across the country for medical research. The loophole is that site fees and retrieval reimbursement amounts are unregulated. The law requires that such payments be reasonable and reflect the actual cost of securing the parts; but there are no state or federal laws which establish guidelines or set limits regarding these payments, and no one is appointed to oversee the system.”

In 1999, after Crutcher’s investigation, the United States General Accounting Office (GAO) issued a report on the sale of aborted baby body parts and estimated that the National Institutes of Health (NIH) had awarded approximately $17.0 million for 103 research grants using human fetal tissue that year. The GAO report stated that principal investigators who responded to the GAO survey acquired 12,116 human fetal tissue samples in fiscal years 1997 through 1999 for use in NIH- sponsored research.

Thank you Mary Gatter

Unlike what we see in the CMP videos where high ranking officials haggled over the costs of baby parts, with one Planned Parenthood medical director joking that she wants “a Lamborghini” before negotiating for $150.00 a “specimen,” the GAO had found that the costs of acquiring human fetal tissue were “generally low.”

The GAO noted in their report that more than four-fifths of the researchers who received tissue from health clinics i.e. abortion clinics paid no fee. “The fees per sample of human fetal tissue from health clinics ranged from $2 to $75, with an average of $22,” they wrote.

“In fiscal year 1999, 49 percent of the principal investigators in our survey received human fetal tissue without paying an acquisition fee. Among those who did pay an acquisition fee, the average fee per sample was $80 in fiscal year 1999. The median number of tissue samples received by principal investigators in fiscal year 1999 was 26.”

Matry Gatter Planned Parenthood

Daleiden, who described his role in the undercover sting as “the nerdy science geek persona to portray,” spoke about his interaction with abortionist Mary Gatter as one which gave him some concern as an undercover operative:

“For a long period of that lunch she was very tense and was quite aggressive in her questioning of myself. After that meeting I was concerned for a couple of days as to what Dr. Gatter’s suspicion level might have been, but then we saw her again at the Planned Parenthood medical directors meeting and she was perfectly friendly and congenial, so I came to learn that was her personality. She has that ornery personality when she first meets you and then warms up to you later.”

planned-parenthood-video-crush-b

He then opened up a little about his friendship with Planned Parenthood Federation Senior Director of Medical Services, Dr. Deborah Nucatola. She was featured in CMP’s first video where she shockingly explains how she would, “crush below” and “crush above” to “see if I can get it all intact.”

“Deb [Nucatola] was our best friend the whole time. I still consider her a friend. I don’t know how she feels about me,” the CMP founder stated.

Daleiden was recently indicted by a Houston grand jury for, of all things, allegedly offering to purchase fetal organs. But he defends his actions by pointing out that undercover stings are commonly used by investigative journalists.

“For the public at large, undercover work, I think most people realize, is a key part of both journalism and law enforcement and most people really don’t find that controversial.”

When the Examiner asked Daleiden about the fact that no one has proven Planned Parenthood broke the law, he responded by explaining that, “even the contractors themselves, Stem Express and other companies, make it clear the payments are on a per specimen basis and Planned Parenthood only gets the payments if the specimen is a high enough quality so it meets the specifications.” He later points out that Planned Parenthood has never accused him of saying anything that was not true:

“It’s interesting that the lawsuit Planned Parenthood filed kind of threw everything but the kitchen sink at me, but the one thing they did not sue for is defamation. They are upset by the way we went about doing it, but they are not claiming in a legal sense that we said anything that was untrue.”

The CMP founder said that his work has made him a target and admitted receiving death threats and other threats of bodily harm. But, He reiterated that his focus and that of CMP remains “on investigative journalism with a focus on bioethical issues that impact human dignity in a significant way.” Of the upcoming Congressional hearings into the use of baby parts, Daleiden said that he was pleased, “I was hoping for maybe just one congressional investigation after we released the videos … it turns out there were five,” he said.

Earlier this month, the chair of a U.S. House investigative panel announced that they issued subpoenas to Stem Express and two other agencies in order to obtain documents regarding the possible sale of aborted baby body parts. According to Rep. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) who chairs the Select Investigative Panel on Infant Lives the first hearing will be held on Wednesday, March 2, 2016.

Although Daleiden hinted that CMP may have other investigations in the works, he said that right now he remains focused on exposing Planned Parenthood grisly baby parts operation and noted that, “there’s still plenty of unreleased footage” to be released.

CMP: Planned Parenthood Houston Admits Accounting Gimmicks Hide Baby Parts Sales, Invoices Charge $8,000

Posted in Aborted Baby Body Parts, Center for Medical Progress with tags , , , , , , , , , , on February 5, 2016 by saynsumthn

From Operation Rescue:

The Center for Medical Progress has released a new video detailing how Planned Parenthood used bogus line-item entries to hide profits from the sale of aborted baby remains.

The video focuses on invoices obtained by Operation Rescue’s Texas attorney Briscoe Cain through Freedom of Information Act requests and connects the dots to Planned Parenthood’s duplicitous book-keeping scheme with clips from the CMP’s undercover investigation at the Houston Planned Parenthood, one of the largest volume late-term abortion facilities in the country.

“The invoices clearly show how Planned Parenthood padded invoices in such a way as to hide the fact they were making illegal profits,” said Operation Rescue Senior Vice President Cheryl Sullenger. “This is not only hard evidence that Planned Parenthood broke the law, but also shows that The Harris County grand jury indicted the wrong people.”

A Harris County Grand Jury recently indicted CMP leader David Daleiden and his associate, Susan Merritt, who conducted the on-site undercover sting in Houston. While the same grand jury is said to have “cleared” Planned Parenthood, Operation Rescue has uncovered evidence that bias in the office of District Attorney Devon Anderson tainted the process and turned the investigation against the whistleblowers who reported evidence of Planned Parenthood’s obvious criminal conduct.

Daleiden and Merritt will turn themselves in at the Harris County Courthouse on Thursday when a press conference by national leaders will present over 100,000 signatures calling on Anderson to drop the charges against Daleiden and Merritt.

A coalition of pro-life leaders, including Sullenger of Operation Rescue, plan to present over 100,000 signatures to Harris County District Attorney Devon Anderson after a press conference also Thursday morning.

Operation Rescue President Troy Newman served as a founding Board Member for the Center for Medical Progress. He, along with Daleiden and others, have been sued in a San Francisco Federal Court by Planned Parenthood and the National Abortion Federation, who are attempting to use the courts to silence the evidence against them deflect public attention from their own wrongdoing.

“We call on District Attorney Devon Anderson to resign due to her inability to conduct her duties without bias,” said Sullenger. “We also call for all charges to be dropped against Daleiden and Merritt and for special prosecutors to reopen the Planned Parenthood and Karpen cases.”

Houston abortionist Douglas Karpen was accused by former employees of murdering babies who were born alive during late-term abortions, but was “cleared” by another Anderson grand jury in 2013. Karpen was represented by attorney Chip Lewis, who is a personal friend of Anderson’s and is her largest political donor, who recently indicated he has improper inside knowledge of both grand juries.

23 health violations at Georgia Planned Parenthood while Ohio investigates fetal disposal

Posted in Aborted Baby Body Parts, Aborted Baby Trash, Abortion Clinic Inspections, Planned Parenthood inspected, Stericycle with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on December 17, 2015 by saynsumthn

A local media outlet in Georgia combed through five years of state health inspections from local abortion clinics and found several disturbing violations. WSBTV, channel 2, said they spent a month looking at the health documents after the release of undercover videos showing Planned Parenthood’s baby parts operation.

State inspections Georgia Abortion

In their investigative report, after they learned that these abortion facilities were not improperly disposing of aborted babies, Channel 2 said they wanted to see exactly what the state had found after performing a complete inspection of abortion facilities. They also wanted to know how often the inspections are done. So, they said the TV station filed an open records report with the state asking for state inspection reports of licensed abortion clinics dating back five years.

Georgia Abortion facility inspections list

What WSBTV discovered would horrify the public. According to their report, the following violations were documented during state health inspections of these so-called “safe and legal” abortion facilities:

    Expired Medications and medical instruments
    Unsterilized equipment
    Sterile and nonsterile supplies stored in the same room
    The vent in a biohazard room taped off with cardboard
    Stirrups wrapped in duck tape
    Iodine swabs used to prevent wound infections expired by 10 years
    Soiled linens in surgical rooms to name a few.

Planned Parenthood 14 violations abortion georgia

In addition, the TV station discovered that one of the abortion clinics cited by the state was a Planned Parenthood facility located in Augusta. According to their findings, that Planned Parenthood abortion clinic had 23 health or safety violations in one year alone and was fined by the state. However, they also discovered that health inspectors did not return to the Planned Parenthood abortion center to see if the violations had been corrected until two years later.

PLanned Parenthood inspected geoagoa

Virginia Gallaway with the Faith and Freedom Coalition told channel 2 that she was shocked because restaurants were inspected more frequently than abortion clinics.

Abortion CLinic Georgia

Interestingly, Staci Fox, Planned Parenthood’s Southeast CEO which heads the Planned Parenthood mentioned in the report, claimed the inspections might be deceiving because of an unsubstantiated bias against them. But, this kind of excuse is simply a PR move for Planned Parenthood.

Meanwhile, Ohio’s attorney general has announced that three of the state’s Planned Parenthood clinics (Bedford Heights, Cincinnati, and Columbus) have been illegally disposing of the bodies of aborted babies by throwing them in landfills. “Disposing of aborted fetuses from an abortion by sending them to a landfill is callous and completely inhumane,” Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine said in a news release. “It is important the public be aware that these practices are taking place at these Ohio facilities.”

But, Stephanie Kight, president and chief executive officer of Planned Parenthood Advocates of Ohio
has denied the allegation telling Reuters that, “Planned Parenthood contracts with vendors to handle fetal tissue in a respectful manner and in accordance with the law”.

DeWine began the investigation to determine whether fetal tissue was selling fetal tissue, or abortion trafficking, in violation of Ohio law. Investigators requested documents and financial records from Planned Parenthood organizations as well as companies they contracted with. Although the investigation did not find that fetal tissue was sold by Planned Parenthood affiliates in Ohio, the investigation did show that the disposal methods documented by the Planned Parenthood affiliates violate Ohio Administrative law, which requires that a “fetus shall be disposed of in a humane manner.”

A press statement released Friday by the Ohio AG named the specifics:

    All three Ohio Planned Parenthood affiliates have sent fetal remains to companies which disposed of the fetuses in landfills.
    Additionally, the Planned Parenthood facility in Bedford Heights stated it uses only one company for disposal. However, that company stated to investigators it does not accept fetal remains for disposal as a corporate policy.

Planned Parenthoos dispose fetuses landfill

13ABC Action gave additional details:

    “Planned Parenthood said some fetal tissue is donated for medical research, but such donations are illegal in Ohio. A Planned Parenthood state leader has said no donation program exists here.

    “During DeWine’s investigation of the tissue sale issue, he said his office found that Marietta, Ohio-based Accu Medical Waste Service, Inc., a waste disposal company used by Planned Parenthood affiliates in Cincinnati and Columbus, sent the remains to a Kentucky landfill.

    “An Accu Medical official told DeWine’s office that his company uses a standard treatment for biological waste called “autoclave” involving a high-pressure steam treatment to kill infectious material.

    The investigation determined that fetal remains taken by Lake Forest, Illinois-based Stericycle from a third Planned Parenthood affiliate, in Bedford Heights in suburban Cleveland, ended up in a different landfill. DeWine’s office didn’t identify that landfill.

    “Kight referred questions on disposal to the companies. A man who answered the phone at Accu Medical Waste Service who wouldn’t give his name said all employees had been instructed not to comment.

    Stericycle said in a statement it has a long-standing policy against accepting fetal remains. DeWine’s office said Planned Parenthood uses the company to dispose of its biological waste including aborted fetuses.”

DeWine said that he has referred his investigative findings to the Ohio Department of Health for further action.

Citizens protest Planned Parenthood fetal procurement company Stem Express

California citizens horrified by Planned Parenthood selling aborted baby parts are regularly protesting their procurement company, StemExpress. Over the summer, the Center for Medical Progress began releasing undercover video evidence showing Planned Parenthood staffers haggling over organs procured from babies the tax funded organization aborted. Then CMP shocked Americans further when they released an interview they did with a former StemExpress procurement technician detailing how she was ordered to cut through the face of a live baby in order to obtain the required brain tissue.

STem Express   sign

As America reeled from what they were seeing in the CMP vids, so did the citizens of Placerville where StemExpress is located. In response, several groups of citizens took it up themselves to protest outside Stem Express and expose their baby harvesting connection to the abortion giant Planned Parenthood. One of those protesters described Placerville as a quiet small town in need of jobs. Marcia Brim noted that when Stem Express came into their city the citizens had no idea what the fetal research company was all about.

“Nobody was more astounded by what was happening in our back yard than the people of Placerville. Our county doesn’t even have an abortion clinic,” Marcia said.

According to Marcia, before she saw the CMP videos she had never taken part in a protest. Now, she said she has been protesting outside Stem Express two to three days a week for several months. “A lot of us have never protested anything like this before. That is my story. I prayed for the others but never did it myself,” Marcia said. “What David and CMP did has made a huge difference in our lives and we are very grateful for what he has brought to light,” she added.

Marcia said that protesters have received a very positive response. “On the sidewalk we have people who walk or drive by and it is overwhelmingly apparent that the citizens of Placerville support their protests,” she stated.

Stem Express prolife protest

Robbie Jeremica agrees stating that he has spent every Wednesday in front of Stem Express for the past 12 weeks where he observed that most of the responses from those who drive or walk by have been positive. He and his Chrissy call their ability to expose what is going on a, “blessing” because, as he explained they are, “a voice for the unborn.” Robbie said he prays for those who disagree with him because they, “cannot see truth because they are blinded by the darkness without Christ in their hearts.”

Laura Ellis joined the protests along with her children. She was so upset about what Stem Express did that she penned a letter to the editor which read in part:

    “We are some of the women and children standing outside of Stem Express…We’re writing this letter to share the heart behind the signs you see many of us holding…We find the profit from and research of aborted baby’s body parts to be a devastating aspect of the industry…It is our hope and prayer that as people are faced with the reality of the horrors of abortion, it will cause them to see how terrible all sin is and how desperately they need a Savior.”

Protest Stem Express 6_1477411820748127924_n

Pastor Nick Triveri from Calvary Chapel Placerville, who also attends the demonstrations, said he has observed a loving response by the Christians who are taking a stand, “I am blessed by the Jesus like attitude all have displayed, and done so with love and boldness so as to stand for what is right, and for the innocent lives that are not only sacrificed on the altar of choice, but are being marketed for profit,” he said. “It is tragic that those standing for what is right, good, wholesome, and respectful of God given life are often painted as radicals, nuisances, or obstructionist. I thank God for all who are willing to stand and be a witness of the Lord against such heinous acts that have become so commonly accepted and condoned. If the eyes of just one person are opened, or just one child is saved by their witness and testimony it will all be worth it.”

Marcia detailed the beginning of the Stem Express protests when a small group of concerned citizens organized on Facebook with the intent of educating their community about Stem Express. Their first post from July read:

    “the notion that such a practice would be going on within a company that have locations here in our town, is reason enough to speak up about our thoughts on the matter. For the most part Placerville and the El Dorado Foothills communities are tight-nit and conservative in their views. This is not the Bay Area.”

Stem Express protest media abortion prolife

That Facebook group was started by Lisa Hart and another Placerville citizen after they became aware of StemExpress’ involvement with Planned Parenthood. She contacted Misty Tienken to help organize the protests. Mary said that she wanted to focus on Stem Express’ practice of harvesting baby parts as well as potential illegal activity. Lisa said that within days of creating the People Protesting StemExpress Facebook page they had hundreds of followers, noting “I knew I had to take immediate action.”

By August 3, 2015 that group held their first protest receiving coverage from local media. On the 4th the group posted that they had received several thank you messages from people for “bringing awareness.” Then, by August 5th they discovered another group had planned to protest the abortion procurement company as well.

Stem Express Lisa Hart

“We’re trying to say stop this practice or get out of Placerville,” Lisa told News10. “We don’t condone this in our town. We don’t want this in our town.

By the 7th of August there were protests being organized in front of Stem Express on Mondays and then on Wednesdays. And by August 22nd those opposed to Stem Express were expressing their objections every Saturday. In no time, citizen groups unconnected to the Facebook People Protesting Stem Express group were so horrified that they also came out.

Hart said that shortly after the media covered their protests they received news that StemExpress had “cut ties” with Planned Parenthood. The Placerville resident said that in addition to the public outreaches, the group has requested that the Board of Supervisors audits Stem Express for alleged violations. In addition, they have contacted the local El Dorado County Sheriff’s department and demanded an investigation of the fetal tissue procurement company.

When the Center for Medical Progress videos flooded the media, Beth Mora said that she was shocked, “StemExpress was clearly identified as a company that bought and sold parts of babies. As horrible as that notion is, I stopped in my tracks for another reason. I recognized the buildings in the film. The scenery behind the reporter was my peaceful little rural town, Placerville, California,” she told Saynsumthn.

“Stem Express is part of a row of quaint buildings between our town’s beloved Buttercup Pantry and the Council of Arts building. The films made the pit in my stomach churn,” she added.

Beth Mora Stem Express

It was shortly after that when she saw an e-mail from Marcia Brim encouraging her to take a stand and she has been in front of Stem Express most Fridays thereafter, “Our presence says to our community-What is happening here is a crime of the worst proportion…Our sleepy rural town has awakened to what is happening just off of Main Street…The abortion industry forges black chain links with the hot red fires of blind passion. Sparks fly and black powder soot scatters with each smite of the pro-abortion campaign hammer. If standing on a sidewalk can weaken one link, then stand I will…I’m honored to chisel away at one link, a link that happens to live in my neighborhood,” she stated.


Marcia has been documenting her encounters outside Stem Express and is planning to publish them in a blog. She said that when she heard about the pickets in front of Stem Express she immediately contacted over 300 people she knew from a group she was involved with. She said people were grateful to have a way to speak up and the response has been tremendous. According to Marcia at three pastors have joined the protests already along with a variety of citizens from varying denominations and a number of citizens with no religious affiliation at all.

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.”

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.

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.

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.”
