Florida passes bills on abortion that could defund Planned Parenthood

Florida has become yet another state to defund Planned Parenthood. Florida Governor Rick Scott signed a law that cuts off state funding to clinics providing abortion and imposes abortion restrictions already being tested before the U.S. Supreme Court.

From the Courier Tribune:

    Abortion clinics throughout Florida will go without taxpayer funds, face increased reporting requirements and new hurdles for doctors providing the procedure under a bill signed Friday by Gov. Rick Scott.

    Scott, a Republican, did not make any comment on HB 1411, which was signed with 67 other bills, but the flood of statements from abortion rights and anti-abortion groups alternatively condemning and praising the move reflects the sharp divide over the issue.

    “As a result of this bill, thousands of people across Florida may no longer be able to access essential reproductive health care, such as cancer screenings, birth control, and well-woman exams,” said Cecile Richards, president of Planned Parenthood. “This cruel bill is designed to rip health care away from those most at risk. Rick Scott has shown he will do all he can to strip basic care away from those who need it most.”

    But John Stemberger, president of the Florida Family Policy Council, an Orlando-based social conservative advocacy group, hailed the bill as protecting women’s’ health, since more inspections will ensure greater quality care.

    “This is a historic victory and we are thrilled to have been an active part of this effort,” Stemberger said.

A Report by TampaBay.com reads:

    Lawmakers wrote the new measure following last summer’s controversy over videos that appeared to show Planned Parenthood officials talking about their fetal tissue donation program.

    The law redefines the trimesters of a pregnancy, validating claims by state regulators last summer alleging Florida’s Planned Parenthood sites violated their licenses. And the funding cuts could affect six Planned Parenthood clinics.

Years ago, a Planned Parenthood lobbyist said that allowing babies to die on the table after being aborted was between the “Doctor and their patient.”

Florida Planned Parenthood lobbyist Alisa LaPolt Snow testified against a ‘Born Alive’ infant protection bill that would give human rights to babies born after a botched abortion. She said doctors in abortion clinics should not be required to take such babies to a hospital, instead leaving the ‘choice’ of what to do up to them and their patients.

Other clinic regulations have also been proposed.

Starting July 1, abortion clinics will be required to have admitting privileges or transfer agreements with a nearby hospital. They also will face annual inspections by the state as part of a law that sponsor Sen. Kelli Stargel, R-Lakeland, said is about ensuring women’s safety.

“What we did with these clinics is just treat them similar to other surgery centers,” Stargel said.

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

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.

Holly OFOnnell Stem Express fully intact planned parenthood

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!

Holly OFOnnell Stem Express fully intact planned parenthood

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.”

Holly ODonnell Planned Parenthood heart face organs abortion

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:

Planned Parenthood lobbyist and ‘House of Horror’ abortionist Gosnell agree let babies born alive after abortions – DIE!

Alisa LaPolt SnowA Planned Parenthood lobbyist recently said that allowing babies to die on the table after being aborted was between the “Doctor and their patient” and that is exactly what Kermit Gosnell believed and did:

Florida Planned Parenthood lobbyist Alisa LaPolt Snow testified against a ‘Born Alive’ infant protection bill that would give human rights to babies born after a botched abortion. She said doctors in abortion clinics should not be required to take such babies to a hospital, instead leaving the ‘choice’ of what to do up to them and their patients

The bill was introduced by State Rep. Cary Pigman, a board certified Emergency Medicine physician. It has nine co-sponsors.

‘It is just really hard for me to even ask you this question,’ Republican State Rep. Jim Boyd said during the hearing, ‘because I’m almost in disbelief: If a baby is born on a table as a result of a botched abortion, what would Planned Parenthood want to have happen to that child that’s struggling for life?’

Snow replied, ‘We believe that, you know, any decision that’s made should be left up to the woman, her family, and the physician.’

Next in the line of emotional inquisitors was Republican Rep. Daniel Davis.
‘What happens in a situation where a baby is alive, breathing on a table, moving,’ Davis asked. ‘What do your physicians do at that point?’

‘I do not have that information,’ Snow replied. ‘I am not a physician, I am not an abortion provider. So I do not have that information.’

Testifying at the Kermit Gosnell abortion murder trial, employee Stephen Massof said he saw at least one baby take a breath, and another jerk its leg.

Gosnell told his staff that such movements were “spontaneous,” Massof said. Massof estimated that he saw about 100 babies born alive and then “snipped” with surgical scissors in the back of the neck, to ensure their “demise.”Gosnell Behind Bars

Stephen Massof described how he snipped the spinal cords of babies, calling it, “literally a beheading. It is separating the brain from the body.” He testified that at times, when women were given medicine to speed up their deliveries, “it would rain fetuses. Fetuses and blood all over the place.”

A mutual acquaintance led him to Gosnell’s clinic, where he spent five years before leaving in 2008 over a dispute with other staffers. He was charged with murder three years later, after a 2010 FBI probe of Gosnell’s distribution of painkillers spawned a raid at the clinic, and the more serious abortion case.

Massof smiled oddly Thursday as he gave graphic testimony about conditions at the clinic, which he said deteriorated during his five-year tenure. He made only $200 to $300 a week to oversee a high volume of second-trimester patients going through labor — and, often, delivery. He said he saw at least one baby take a breath, and another jerk its leg. Gosnell told his staff that such movements were “spontaneous,” Massof said.

Massof estimated that he saw about 100 babies born alive and then “snipped” with surgical scissors in the back of the neck, to ensure their “demise.”
Gosnell, who had another clinic in Delaware, typically came in only at night for the final part of the procedure, leaving Massof to monitor the pain-racked or highly sedated women.

“I felt like a firemen in hell. I couldn’t put out all the fires,” he testified.

Gosnell, meanwhile, took in more than $1 million a year, and kept $250,000 in cash under his mattress, prosecutors have said.
“He always led me to believe he was a poor, struggling urban physician and surgeon,” Massof said. “I thought he was hurting financially.”
