Planned Parenthood nightmare: “New York Times Headlines” on aborted baby harvesting of spinal cords and gonads b/c media doesn’t see big picture

In the latest undercover video from the Center for Medical Progress you get a sense that Planned Parenthood knew, before the videos were even exposed, that if the public got wind of what they were doing it would be a public relations disaster.

In this 10th video you get a sense of the fear that Planned Parenthood had in the possibility that their grisly baby parts operation would generate a possible “New York Times Headline.”

Despite 9 other videos, though, the media has been biased and even protective of the abortion business which gets millions in tax monies each year. However, social media is driving the public outrage over Planned Parenthood’s Mengele-like operation.

Previous videos by the pro-life group have shown Planned Parenthood top staffers haggling over money of the babies they abort. In addition, both Planned Parenthood doctors as well as a former procurement tech from Stem Express are heard describing the horrific way the abortion business harvests organs.

Planned Parenthood Federation of America Senior Director of Medical Services, Dr. Deborah Nucatola admitted she would “crush above” or “crush below” the unborn child to protect the specific baby organ she wanted to procure.

Then there was the horrific description of former StemExpress fetal procurement tech, Holly O’Donnell describing how she was lured into cutting through the face of an intact unborn child whose heart was beating to get brain tissue made me literally sick.

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,” O’Donnell says in the video.

Carolyn Westoff spinal cords Planned Parenthood baby parts

In the 10th video from CMP, Dr. Carolyn Westhoff, Senior Medical Advisor for PPFA tells what she thinks is a buyer from a Biotech company that the baby body parts most buyers want include spinal cords and gonads among others.

We’ve just been working with people who want particular tissues, like, you know, they want cardiac, or they want eyes, or they want neural,” says Dr. Westhoff to a prospective fetal organ buyer. “Certainly, everything we provide–oh, gonads! Oh my God, gonads. Everything we provide is fresh.”

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 first thought that came to my mind is, wouldn’t it be nice if, instead of buying spinal cords and gonads from innocent babies, that Congress and every attorney general in the country would get a “spine” and not only defund the baby parts harvesting organization but prosecute them?

At the event where the video is recorded, Westoff who is often quoted as an abortion expert, mentions to CMP that Planned Parenthood’s head of abortion services is there and could discuss the possibility of having their affiliates harvest babies, however, she acknowledges that if this got out to the public it would be a huge PR nightmare.

    “Obviously, we would have the potential for a huge P.R. issue in doing this,” Westoff said before offering to introduce the buyers to “national office abortion people” from Planned Parenthood.

Vanessa Cullins Planned Parenthood aborted baby parts

Dr. Vanessa Cullins, Vice President for External Medical Affairs for PPFA who once said of HPV, “All of us get it,” echoed Westoff’s fears.

    “This is important. This could destroy your organization and us, if we don’t time those conversations correctly,” she tells a prospective buyer.

Deb Van Derhei NAF Harvesting babies

Deborah VanDerhei, National Director for the Consortium of Abortion Providers (CAPS) at PPFA told the “buyer” that she has been talking about harvesting babies to the National Abortion Federation (NAF) and how to figure it all out as an industry and how the abortion clinics should be “compensated.”

CAPS is an influential committee within Planned Parenthood that drives abortion policy across the organization.

In the video, you hear VanDerhei referring to payments for fetal tissue as “donation for remuneration,” which carries the connotation of financial reward or benefit without regard for actual expenses, according to CMP.

    I have been talking to the executive director of the National Abortion Federation, we’re trying to figure this out as an industry, about how we’re going to manage remuneration, because the headlines would be a disaster,” she says.

Planned Parenthood absent policy on aborted baby harvesting'

Despite Planned Parenthood’s repeated denial that they are illegalling selling the organs from babies they abort and then harvest, VanDerhei admitted to the undercover group that her organization is intentionally “absent a policy” but whatever their centers decide they needed to think “New York Times Headline” when creating one.

    “We are absent a policy and that’s relatively intentional. And the policy that we do have suggests that you really think about what you are doing, vet your procurement service, and um, if there’s any way you can do it mission based that that’s probably better.

    “And if you do decide that you want to engage in remuneration, that you really need to like think that through and think “New York Times Headline,” when you’re creating your policy,” the Planned Parenthood “abortion person” said.

If you recall from previous videos, this was reiterated by Planned Parenthood Federation of America Senior Director of Medical Services, Dr. Deborah Nucatola who stated clearly that there are no Planned Parenthood guidelines on “tissue procurement” saying “there will never be guidelines.”

Deborah Nucatola Planned Parenthood guidelines baby parts

When asked if there are any guidelines regarding compensation for the aborted tissue i.e. body parts of the human child, Nucatola said, “Nothing is written, there is nothing in stone.

This appeared to be the case because later in the video, the National Director for the Consortium of Abortion Providers (CAPS) at PPFA admitted, “We have independent colleagues who generate a fair amount of income doing this.”

Van Derhei Planned Parenthood harvesting income

VanDerhei suggests that Planned Parenthood goes to great lengths to avoid leaving a paper trail about their fetal tissue activity: “It’s an issue that you might imagine we’re not really that comfortable talking about on email.”

In a conversation recorded between VanDerhei and Vanessa Russo, Compliance Program Administrator for Planned Parenthood Keystone in Pennsylvania, Russo suggested that Planned Parenthood doesn’t need to worry about the “headlines” because they “can’t consent to be bullied by ridiculous laws” and a media that “doesn’t understand the big picture.

Vanessa Russo Planned Parenthood ridiculous laws harvesting baby parts

Adding that she loves the idea of being able to harvest babies for research. Russo said there was too much discussion on ridiculous things and that, “A company like this that wants to give our organization money for the tissue–I think that that’s a valid exchange, and that that’s okay.

VanDerhei, who had a longer history with Planned Parenthood disagreed with Russo’s casual take reminding her that, “A Congressional hearing from, you know, scared the Bejezzus out of people 15 years ago.”

She was referring to an investigation conducted by the pro-life group, Life Dynamics in Denton, Texas which originally exposed the way the abortion industry sells aborted baby parts. ( read here)

In the end, despite all the hurdles, VanDerhei emphasized that she wanted to make sure that when it comes to harvesting baby parts for remuneration, the take-away is “this is a good idea.”

Planned Parenthood is the largest abortion provider in the country, responsible for 327,000 abortions every year, and receives $528 million in taxpayer money each year.

An audit recently conducted on Planned Parenthood Federation of America revealed that they spend over $62 MILLION for just employee compensation including salaries.

David Daleiden, Project Lead for CMP that, “From email black-outs to contorted oxymorons like ‘donation for remuneration,’ the lengths to which Planned Parenthood leadership will go to cover-up their illegal sale of aborted baby parts are nothing less than the desperation of a guilty conscience.”

“Planned Parenthood CEO Cecile Richards openly admits they receive ‘$60 per tissue specimen,’ and their contracts with StemExpress offer payments per fetus ‘determined in the clinic to be usable.’ Planned Parenthood runs their abortion and baby parts business in open disregard for the law and should be prosecuted immediately. Their taxpayer funding should be reassigned to Federally Qualified Health Centers, which provide more and comprehensive health services at locations outnumbering Planned Parenthood 20 to 1.”

Planned Parenthood: Abnormal bleeding after surgical abortion not unusual nor unanticipated

Planned Parenthood Keystone had a novel excuse for failing to report the ambulance transfer of a patient to the Pennsylvania Department of Health, as required by law.

plannedparenthoodoffice8 Orange CA 2009 (1)

When DOH inspected Planned Parenthood Keystone’s Allentown abortion clinic on February 27, 2014, it was surprised to learn a patient had begun hemorrhaging after her abortion on March 15, 2013, and taken to the hospital by ambulance.

This was a surprising because DOH is supposed to get a report from any medical facility within 24 hours after such an occurrence, and it didn’t in this case.

Planned Parenthood’s excuse?

Its Patient Safety Officer and Associate Medical Director “determined that this event did not constitute a serious event or incident…. Abnormal bleeding after a surgical abortion is not unusual nor is it unanticipated,” quoting from the report.

PP Allentown Keystone

The Health Department report reads: the patient presented to the facility on March 15, 2013, for an elective in-clinic abortion. CF1 performed internal suction and documented no products of conception were found. CF1 requested an ultrasound be performed. Further review revealed CF1 documented the patient’s uterus was empty. CF1 completed a second internal suction of the patient’s uterus. CF1 documented no products of conception were found and requested a second ultrasound be performed. CF1 documented no products of conception were found. Continued review of MR6 revealed the patient began with excessive bleeding with noticeable large clots. CF1 instructed CF2 to administer Methergine (medication used to manage hemorrhage) 0.2 milligrams (mg) intramuscularly (IM). The patient’s excessive bleeding continued and CF1 instructed EMP3 to call 911 to request ambulance transport of MR6 to the hospital’s emergency department (ED).

Interview with EMP2 and EMP3 on February 27, 2014, at approximately 2:00 PM confirmed CF1 performed internal suction two times on MR6, and each time there were no products of
conception found. Continued interview confirmed the patient had excessive bleeding, was given Methergine, and transferred to the hospital ED for excessive bleeding following an in-clinic abortion.

A request was made of EMP1 and EMP2 on February 27, 2014, for the facility’s internal investigation and the facility’s report of MR6’s transfer from the facility to an acute care hospital emergency department. No investigation or facility report to the Department or Patient Safety Authority were provided. Phone interview with EMP1 on February 27, 2014, at approximately 2:15 PM revealed if the facility did submit this occurrence, it would have been submitted as an incident and not a serious event.”

In 2013, Planned Parenthood of Northeast, Mid-Penn & Bucks County and Planned Parenthood of Central Pennsylvania merged and the new entity is called Planned Parenthood Keystone.

According to their website, Planned Parenthood Keystone (PPKey) serves 37 counties in Pennsylvania

According to a report they uploaded online the Planned Parenthood of Northeast, Mid-Penn, and Bucks County Planned Parenthood Central medical director is James Anasti, MD.

Planned Parenthood accused of operating another unsanitary facility

Blogger Jill Stanek recently received an interesting tip from a woman she will call LOLA (to protect her identity) who claimed she was a former Planned Parenthood employee, trying to protect women from an unsanitary Planned Parenthood office.

PPKeystone_Logo_sm_6-28-13

Lola was allegedly employed by the Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania, Planned Parenthood clinic but recently quit in disgust. That location is operated by Operated by: Planned Parenthood Keystone

In an e-mailed message to Stanek, Lola wries, “We read your stuff and thought you were all crazy,” Lola said. “But not any more.” Lola and I have now spoken a few times by phone. She also sent me pictures she took before she left. The Stroudsburg clinic doesn’t commit abortions. Lola concluded this is why it fell to the bottom of the upkeep pile. “Every single one of our chairs is stained with blood or vaginal secretions,” Lola continued. “The Department of Health mandated that PP abortion sites have waiting room chairs that are nonpermeable, so this wouldn’t be a problem. Is the Department aware PP’s nonabortion centers still have the upholstered chairs? We asked multiple times for nonpermeable chairs but were told it wasn’t in the budget. Patients sometimes sat on the floor rather than on infected chairs.”

“It gets worse,” Lola continued. “One of our two exam tables was contaminated with blood, secretions, and infectious waste – for years. Despite cleaning the table after every exam, the foam underneath was soaked due to the tear, a making it a sponge for the spread of infectious diseases, since our facility did STD, Hepatitis, and HIV testing. Corporate refused to repair or replace the table until our clinician threatened a work stoppage, because this was such a gross health violation. Realizing they were going to lose big money, corporate finally had someone come and reupholster it.”

This spells similar to the accusations against a Delaware Planned Parenthood only a few months ago:

Planned Parenthood of Del. Under Investigation

PPDE Wilmington SIGN

A Planned Parenthood facility in Wilmington is under fire following new accusations from three former employees.

MelodyMeanor2Melody Meanor

Former manager Melody Meanor and former nurses Joyce Vasikonis and Jayne Mitchell-Werbrich claim that the Planned Parenthood clinic located on Shipley Street in Wilmington is unprofessional, under-trained and unsafe.

“Women are exposed to potential infection of any kind you can imagine that can be passed from one patient to another,” Vasikonis said.

PP DE 564507_501479036585800_403720624_nJoyce Vasikonis and Jayne Mitchell-Werbrich

The women claimed the privacy of patients was jeopardized, that they were asked to falsify employee records, that medical assistants were poorly trained and that certain women in need of certain medications after abortions often didn’t receive them. They also claimed that the facility failed to inform up to 200 women that they tested positive for gonorrhea and chlamydia, according to Delaware Online.

PPDE2010-affiliate-logo-90240

All three nurses maintained that they are pro-choice and believe in the national mission of Planned Parenthood. They also believe however that the Wilmington clinic is putting the lives of women at risk.

PPDE OSHA

OSHA previously issued several citations against the clinic and the State Health Department found violations during an inspection. However, the Department allowed the clinic to stay open, satisfied with its attempts to make things right. The former employees however, don’t believe the state is looking close enough.

“I believe that Planned Parenthood should be fined and closed until all dangers are addressed,” Werbrich said. “Again, I’m going to state, I am pro-choice.”

Jayne PPDE

Former Planned Parenthood of Delaware employee , Jayne Mitchell-Werbrich, worked as a registered nurse at Planned Parenthood in 2012. She calls them “startling similarities between Planned Parenthood and Gosnell.

Dr. Gosnell was notorious in the Philadelphia/ Wilmington area – he ran a filthy clinic and was convicted of murder after performing late term abortions where babies were born alive and killed. I was not aware of such horrifying happenings at Planned Parenthood of Delaware The similarity between the case of Kermit Gosnell and Planned Parenthood of Delaware is that they both operated extremely hazardous abortion clinics, and that their respective states refused to close them despite the repeated warnings. I believe that Planned Parenthood should be fined and closed until all dangers are addressed.”
