Methods Planned Parenthood uses to profit from selling aborted baby parts, CMP

A pro-life group which successfully infiltrated abortion organizations has published detailed methods they say were used by Planned Parenthood to violate a federal law prohibiting the selling of aborted baby body parts. The Center for Medical Progress (CMP), which released a series of shocking video evidence this summer, claims that the largest provider of abortions profits off the babies they abort by selling their parts for research. In an analysis just published online, CMP breaks down two primary models used by Planned Parenthood in their grisly baby parts operations.

    1). The use of a Fetal Tissue Procurement Organization (TPO), like StemExpress, to manage fetal organ harvesting at their surgical abortion clinics.

    2). Direct supply to local biotech companies or university laboratories.

USING A Tissue Procurement Organization (TPO):

According to the CMP, in the first model a procurement tech, like Stem Express employee Holly O’Donnell, who was interviewed by CMP, does the majority of work to secure the “specimen.” They arrive at the clinic, consent the patient, and retrieve the desired “parts” from the aborted child. In videos released by CMP, O’Donnell testified that she was told to cut through the face of a live child after the baby was aborted in order to obtain brain tissue. CMP points out that when a TPO is used there is no additional cost to the abortion clinic for retrieval of the part, and therefore any “fee” that is paid is all profit:

    The TPO model virtually guarantees that the Planned Parenthood clinic will profit from supplying fetal tissue, because the TPO handles all of the costs of procurement while still paying the abortion clinic a fee per usable body part harvested.

The CMP report lists the following Planned Parenthood affiliates as having worked with a TPO:

    • Planned Parenthood Los Angeles partnered with Novogenix Laboratories, LLC;
    • Planned Parenthood Pacific Southwest in San Diego worked with Advanced Bioscience Resources, Inc.;
    • Planned Parenthood Mar Monte worked with StemExpress
    • Planned Parenthood Northern California worked with StemExpress

In their analysis, CMP points out that the potential for thousands of dollars a year in extra profit is likely. In fact, StemExpress procurement logs obtained by CMP show potential for “a quarter million in extra profit margin that Planned Parenthood could earn,” according to the investigative journalists. CMP has based this estimate on information from fetal parts harvesting involving two Planned Parenthood locations:

    Planned Parenthood Mar Monte in Fresno – 8 fetal parts harvested on December 12, 2012.
    Planned Parenthood in San Jose shows – 9 fetal parts harvested on January 10, 2013.

The math is basic and as CMP states in their report, “Assuming 3 abortion days per week at each abortion clinic, a baby parts yield of 8 per day would mean:”

8 fetal parts/clinic x 4 clinics x $55/part x 3 days/week x 50 weeks/year = $264,000/year

Such an arrangement easily nets over a quarter million in extra profit margin for just this one Planned Parenthood affiliate each year.

DIRECT SUPPLY

The second model, which CMP calls “direct supply” basically cuts out the TPO middleman but enables Planned Parenthood to then charge more for each “specimen” CMP says.

    The second model for baby parts harvesting at Planned Parenthood clinics is one of direct supply to local biotech companies or university laboratories. Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast in Houston, TX has been using this model for decades. While it is possible in this model that the Planned Parenthood clinics may take on more of the work of harvesting baby parts, and thus may incur some actual costs, by cutting out the TPO middle-man the clinics can also charge much higher fees per fetal specimen, far in excess of any actual cost. In this context, Planned Parenthood has more line items to mask illicit baby parts profits, but its accounting gimmicks still cannot withstand close scrutiny.

In the “direct supply model”, CMP discovered that Planned Parenthood uses a two-tired system for billing for their “services” of “specimen retrieval.”

    1). First for its staff to consent all the eligible abortion patients.

    2). Second, higher fee for the fetal tissue specimens that were usable.

According to a conversation CMP had with Dr. Deborah Nucatola, Senior Director of Medical Services for PPFA, the overall patient consent process typically only takes 10 minutes per patient. Yet, Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast (PPGC) invoices to University of Texas Medical Branch for a 2010-2011 fetal tissue study show the clinic charged $25 per “Consent obtained” from abortion patients, and an additional $150 “Consent fee” for a subset of abortion patients. In addition, news reports indicate that at Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountains, fetal tissue specimens were billed at $160/consent.

Using the extra $150.00 “consent fee,” CMP projected a potential $300,000/year extra profit possible for PPGC.

    Planned Parenthood’s capping consent time with patients at 10 minutes, the use of outside couriers or research staff at buyer expense, and the high per-specimen fees paid to Planned Parenthood—ensure that fetal tissue harvesting on a direct-supply model remains highly profitable for Planned Parenthood.

SHIPPING THE SPECIMEN:

Another way CMP found that Planned Parenthood avoids “costs” in “donating” their fetal “specimens” for research is when they are shipped. According to CMP, when shipping costs for fetal specimens are handled by the procurement company or research lad (via pick-up or use of a courier) there is no cost to Planned Parenthood, “the only extra work for Planned Parenthood is consenting the abortion patients to “donate” fetal tissue,” CMP states.

Last month, a U.S. House investigative panel issued subpoenas to StemExpress and others in an effort to obtain documents regarding the possible sale of aborted baby body parts. The Select Investigative Panel on Infant Lives held their first hearing on “Ethics” Wednesday following the CMP investigation. Rep. Marsha Blackburn, who chairs the committee told the panel that “last summer’s [CMP] videos revealed that something very troubling is going on related to fetal tissue and research..and something that deserves investigating.”

As for ongoing questions into wrongdoing by Planned Parenthood, CMP said that while Planned Parenthood continues to receive over half-a-billion dollars in taxpayer money each year they maintain a, “complete lack of transparency around its clinics’ apparent profiteering from aborted baby parts,” and called for them to answer the hard questions:

    “Planned Parenthood should now be on notice to stop covering up for its affiliates’ criminal baby parts sales and start answering the hard questions, if it can afford to tell the truth.”

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.

Holly ODonnell Planned Parenthood heart face organs abortion

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.”

Rampant bacteria + staff problems in abortion clinics says StemExpress CEO calling Planned Parenthood a “volume institution” in baby parts harvesting

The Center for Medical Progress’ eighth video centers on a conversation they have in a public place with Stem Express CEO Cate Dyer. The company was originally operated out of Dyer’s home in rural El Dorado County until she grew it into a very lucrative a multi-million dollar company located in a 19,000-square-foot building in downtown Placerville.

I got really comfortable with tissue and organs,” Dyer once said.

The fetal tissue procurement company tried unsuccessfully to get a restraining order against the pro-life group to censor their first amendment right to release this footage.

On August 21, a California judge lifted a temporary restraining order, and today CMP showed what it had.

In this video release, the CEO of StemExpress expresses an interest in fetal livers which she claims they get a lot of requests for.

    “Specifically liver tissue because that’s such an area of demand for us,” Dyer says.

Cate Dyer STem Express Fetal Liver Planned Parenthood

According to CMP, StemExpress, LLC, is a major buyer of fetal tissue from Planned Parenthood which tells the actors that she gets a lot of requests for baby livers. This is reflective in what StemExpress advertises on their website and in a Stem Express catalog that has since been removed.

But, a cached version still exists. For that reason, the screen grabs will look a little distorted than if the actual PDF was available.

Strem Express Catalogue

In the 2013-2014 Stem Express Catalog, owner Cate Dyer, CEO brags that they are the largest provider of fetal tissue globally:

A current (2015) screen grab off the Stem Express fetal liver order page on their website shows how lucrative the selling of human baby livers can be:

More on this here.

Ironically, when Dyer was asked by CMP what amount of fetal body parts would keep her lab happy she responded, “another 50 livers a week” would not be enough.

    “I mean it’s you know volume for us,” Dyer points out.

    “We’re working with almost like triple digit number clinics. So it’s a lot of volume – and we still need more…it’s a lot. So I don’t think you’re going to hit capacity with us anytime in the next ten years,” she added.

She later notes, “Planned Parenthood has volume, because they are a volume institution.”

PLANNED PARENTHOOD SUPPORT:

Cecile RIchards Planned Parenthood ABC

Stem Express said they terminated their relationship with Planned Parenthood after CMP began exposing the depraved baby parts operation weeks ago. However, in this conversation with StemExpress CEO Cate Dyer, Vice President of Corporate Development and Legal Affairs Kevin Cooksy, and Procurement Manager Megan Barr they admit getting lots of support from Planned Parenthood.

Asked if they feel supported from Planned Parenthood prez Cecile Richards and Planned Parenthood Federation of America Senior Director of Medical Services, Dr. Deborah Nucatola who once admitted she would “crush above” or “crush below” the unborn child to protect the specific baby organ she wanted to procure, Dyer responded, “Oh yeah everyone at PPFA [Planned Parenthood Federation of America] and the affiliates.”

INTACT FETUSES

As shocking as it should sound, Dyer admits the company gets “a lot” of intact fetuses.

    “Oh yeah, I mean if you had intact cases, which we’ve done a lot. We sometimes ship those back to our lab in its entirety…So, that would also be great if you have those. Because, again the procurement for us I mean it can go really sideways depending on the facility and then our samples are destroyed and we’re like “really?” This was all so much work and then just to have them be destroyed is awful.”

STAFF AND BACTERIA IN CLINICS:

In addition to her admission of procuring intact fetuses which implied the baby might have been aborted alive, and allowed to die a violation of federal law, Dyer says that there are bacterial problems inside many clinics.

    I’ve seen really rampant – Rampant problems with bacteria in certain clinics. Some where you’re kind of like in question of really should they, really you know.

    “I’ve seen staff in certain clinics. I mean I’ve seen all sorts of things come out of clinics,” she said.

FINANCIALLY BENEFICIAL

Stem Express financial profit Planned Parenthood

Dyer also agrees that payments to abortion clinics for fetal body parts should be financially beneficial to them. It is a violation of federal law to sell human fetal baby parts for profit.

The Stem Express CEO asks CMP who she thinks are buyers for a Biotech firm, if they think there are [abortion] clinics out that have been burned, or feel like they’re doing work for research and that isn’t profitable for them.

And then she responds, “I don’t see that either…I haven’t seen that.”

Stem Express financial benefit Planned Parenthood 1

StemExpress publishes a flyer for Planned Parenthood clinics that promises “Financial Profits” and “fiscal rewards” for clinics that supply aborted fetal tissue. It is endorsed by Planned Parenthood Mar Monte Chief Medical Officer Dr. Dorothy Furgerson.

CHOPPING UP BABIES NOT FOR EVERYONE:

Dyer also reveals that the aborted baby body parts industry is not for everyone:

“So many physicians are like, ‘Oh I can totally procure tissue,’ and they can’t,” she tells CMP, seeming to indicate that abortion doctors must do the procedure in a special way to obtain useable fetal parts. Federal law requires that no alteration in the timing or method of abortion be done for the purposes of fetal tissue collection (42 U.S.C. 289g-1).

ACADEMIC LABS FREAK OUT ABOUT FETAL BODY PARTS:

StemExPress CSU abortion tissue fetal

In the video, Dyer notes that many academic labs do not like to get fetal body parts because they look like babies.

    It’s almost like they don’t want to know where it comes from,” she tells CMP.

    “Where they’re like, we need limbs but no hands and feet need to be attached.”

    “They want you to take it all off, like, ‘make it so that we don’t know what it is,’ ” she said.

    “But, we know what it is,
    ” she said nervously giggling.

    And, they’re lab techs freak out and have meltdowns,

The Stem Express head points out that many of the lab techs at Universities get into other areas of research do they don’t have to publish papers admitting they used fetal tissue.

SHIPPING ISSUES FOR FETAL TISSUE BODY PARTS

Center-for-medical-progress-planned-parenthood-_4074235482570710431_n

Dyer notes that fetal tissue is very fragile calling it “insanely fragile.”

“It’s the hardest thing in the world to ship
,” she says.

In speaking about intact fetal heads, Dyer jokes, “Tell the lab it’s coming so they don’t open the box and go Oh God!”

StemExpress is a for-profit biotech supply company that has been partnered with Planned Parenthood clinics across the country to purchase human fetal parts since its founding in 2010. StemExpress’ Medical Director, Dr. Ronald Berman, is an abortion doctor for Planned Parenthood Mar Monte.

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 Sacramento Business Journal reported in June that StemExpress has an annual revenue of $4.5 million.

The video is the eighth released by The Center for Medical Progress in its investigative journalism study of Planned Parenthood’s sale of aborted baby parts.

A response to the video published by Planned Parenthood on Twitter claims the claims are fake:

Planned Parenthood responds to StemEXpress CMP Vid

“StemExpress is the ‘weakest link’ that unravels Planned Parenthood’s baby parts chain–they readily admit the profit-motive that Planned Parenthood and their proxies have in supplying aborted baby parts,” notes David Daleiden, Project Lead for CMP.

Congress and law enforcement should immediately seize all fetal tissue files from StemExpress and all communications and contracts with Planned Parenthood. The evidence that Planned Parenthood profits from the sale of aborted baby parts is now overwhelming, and not one more dime of taxpayer money should go to their corrupt and fraudulent criminal enterprise.”

Stem Express responded to the video by issuing a statement which reads in part:

    STem Express   signIn a “preview” video released immediately following the court’s ruling, the criminal defendants claim StemExpress “admitted” to receiving “intact fetuses” from Planned Parenthood. However, a cursory review of the unedited video or transcript reveals that the entire conversation was unequivocally discussing “intact” fetal livers, which are used by StemExpress for the development of isolated cells that are urgently needed by scientists and medical researchers working to cure cancer, diabetes and Alzheimer’s disease. In fact, CMP itself has previously acknowledged that this portion of the conversation refers solely to fetal livers, but nonetheless continues to lodge unsupported false accusations at StemExpress.

    StemExpress’s CEO, Cate Dyer, added the following personal response to these latest allegations:

    Cate Fyer of Stem Express fetal body parts Consistent with the company’s prior public statements, StemExpress has never requested, received or provided to a researcher an ‘intact fetus.’ CMP’s and Daleiden’s continued lies reflect a sad attempt to malign StemExpress and me personally. As anyone can see and read, the entire discussion was, in fact, about ‘intact livers,’ which are used by StemExpress to develop and purify isolated cells used by our customers to support their critical scientific research. My use of the term ‘intact cases’ is a medical term of art that refers solely to ‘intact livers,’ as there was absolutely no mention of ‘intact fetuses’ at any point in over two hours of illegally recorded video.”

StemExpress vows to pursue a claim of damages against CMP and David Daleiden for what they describe as, “their illegal conduct.”

Obeying orders to bring about Abortion’s “final solution”

As I watched the 7th Center for Medical Progress video exposing Planned Parenthood’s Mengele-like baby organ harvesting operation I almost threw up.

Holly ODonnell Planned Parenthood heart face organs abortion

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.

I have written my views of previous CMP vids here, here, and here where I address the hypocrisy of outrage over taking the baby parts rather than the baby’s life.

But, as I watched O’Donnell, who is obviously disturbed by the grisly experimentation she was involved in, I had to ask myself why she would obey such orders?

HARVESTING LIVE BABIES

O’Donnell was instructed to cut “through the face” of a baby whose heart is beating, in order to procure the brain tissue. She emotionally said, “No, I don’t want to do this.” But then, she did.

What has become of our culture that allows a person with a conscience to so easily betray it?

O’Donnell is not alone in her obedience to orders.

In May of 2013, abortionist Kermit Gosnell was found guilty of murdering three babies born alive in an abortion clinic. The 72-year-old abortionist stabbed the infants in the back of the neck in his Philadelphia House of Horrors abortion facility.

Kermit Gosnell arrested

Assistant District Attorney Joanne Pescatore told jurors

“The standard practice here was to slay babies. That’s what they did…Staff went along with the routine because they were nearly as desperate as the women, she said.

“They looked just like regular babies,” Employee Ashley Baldwin said. Baldwin said one baby was so big that Gosnell joked that “this baby is going to walk me home.”

Eichman GuiltyIn 1961, an Israeli court found Adolf Eichmann guilty of massacring Jews under the German Nazi regime in what many called a central figure of Hitler’s “final solution.”

The former SS colonel said he did not feel he was guilty but was merely obeying orders calling himself a “tool for his superiors” in a “bad regime.”

The dead would have weighed on my conscience if I had given the order for killing. But I did not,” he said in his defense.

The Nazi leader was adamant of one thing, he was acting on orders he had received telling the court he was accustomed to blind obedience, saying that he would have killed his own father had he been ordered to.

He said the plan to exterminate Jews was not his idea but Adolf Hitler’s and he was only an assistant in helping carry it out.

LIKE THE NAZI PRISON GUARDS, Gosnell’s employees said they only did as they were told:

Shockingly, others within the abortion industry have used similar excuses to justify the killing of babies both inside and out of the womb.

STATEMENTS BY GOSNELL EMPLOYEES

Lynda Williams Gosnell

• Lynda Williams, 44, of Wilmington, said Gosnell taught her how to flip the body of the baby over and snip its neck with a pair of scissors to ensure “fetal demise.” Williams also testified that she followed Gosnell’s orders one time, when Gosnell was away either running, swimming or working at a clinic in Delaware, and took a baby that was delivered in a toilet and snipped its neck. “It jumped, the arm,” she said, showing the jury by raising her arm. Williams told investigators she only snipped a neck the one time, “because it gave me the creeps.” “I only do what I’m told to do,” she told the jury. “What I was told to do was snip their neck.”

• Lynda Williams also responded the same way when asked about seeing Gosnell cut the necks of babies who were delivered before abortion procedures, admitting after reviewing earlier statements that she had seen Gosnell do this at least 30 times. Williams said she asked Gosnell about the baby that moved, and said Gosnell told her it was just an “involuntary response” and a “last breath” because it was “already dead” due to drugs that had been administered earlier. “I never knew it was murder,” Williams told investigators and repeated to the jury.

• Elizabeth Hampton – During the FBI investigation of the clinic, Hampton said that she wasn’t “totally truthful” with investigators because she was scared. She was later arrested for perjury in August 2010 and pleaded guilty. After the investigation, Elizabeth Hampton said that Gosnell ordered the employees to clean and scrub the clinic. The first floor was repainted. When asked why he did so, Hampton replied “If he said to do something, we did it. We didn’t question him.”

• ASHLEY BALDWIN: “They looked just like regular babies,” Baldwin said. Baldwin said one baby was so big that Gosnell joked that “this baby is going to walk me home.” She said the joke bothered her and she talked to her mother about it. Baldwin’s mother, however, was also a Gosnell employee. Tina Baldwin had worked there since 2001. Ashley Baldwin said she assisted Gosnell in abortions, applying pressure to the mother’s abdomen, handing the doctor instruments and equipment. She said she also saw Gosnell use scissors to “snip” the neck of newborns who were moving after the procedure. Although she sometimes felt uneasy about what she saw, Baldwin said, Gosnell always had an explanation: “He told me that’s how it was supposed to go.”

During the trial, an Associated Press reporter described Gosnell as an “elegant man . . . who smiled softly.” How could he smile? How could he be serene at his piano? How could he eat in the midst of squalor and death? How could he live with himself?

_____________________________________________________________________________________

Within days if the Gosnell story breaking open, the pro-life group Life Dynamics located in Denton, Texas, released an interview with three former abortion clinic workers which prove the Pennsylvania abortion doctor Kermit Gosnell, recently convicted of murder, is not an anomaly.

Just as in the Gosnell case, abortion is so prevalent, abortion clinic workers do not know that killing them after they survive is illegal:

ClinicWorkerVideo_quote3Didntknowillegal

As I pointed out in a previous blog post, those who participate in and accept abortion are like the Germans during the Nazi Holocaust.

Writing in The Guardian, John Ezard’s review of the book Backing Hitler reads this way in part:

    They knew concentration camps were full of Jewish people who were stigmatized as sub-human and race-defilers. They knew that these, like other groups and minorities, were being killed out of hand.

    They knew that Adolf Hitler had repeatedly forecast the extermination of every Jew on German soil. They knew these details because they had read about them. They knew because the camps and the measures which led up to them had been prominently and proudly reported step by step in thousands of officially-inspired German media articles and posters…

THEY WILL DIE ANYWAY

Dr_Hans_W_Muench_(SS) Dr. Hans Munch was an SS research pathologist at a Nazi institute near Auschwitz. He refutes the claim that the Nazis who participated in the murders of Jews were just “obeying orders.”

“Nothing was going to make me do it,” he said.

Adding, “No one in the SS was forced to do anything against his will.

Out of the 44 Nazi doctors tried after the war, Munch was the only one acquitted.

Asked if he was fully aware of the gassing being carried out at the concentration camp, he replied, “Yes I was. One was always aware of the smell of burning. Everyone for miles around knew about it.” He noted that at times he could hear the death moans of the victims, “ A sound like no other” he said.

“Very soft” he added.

In an article published by the Montreal Gazette, Munch described Josef Mengele in a way that was so ironically close to what we hear coming from Planned Parenthood defenders today:

    Mengele saw the gassings as the only rational solution and argued that as the prisoners were going to be gassed anyway, there was no reason not to use them for medical experiments.

Shortly after a Center for Medical Progress video exposed a Colorado Planned Parenthood for their part in the vile baby parts harvesting scheme, a local university came under fire for ordering parts from Planned Parenthood’s procurement company, StemExpress.

In the video, Vice President and Medical Director, Dr. Savita Ginde does abortions at Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountains and can be seen negotiating a fetal body parts deal with under cover “buyers” from the Center for Medical Progress (CMP). Ginde is heard in the video speaking about her ability to alter the abortion method to get, intact fetuses, she calls “specimens” in a way that does not “crush” fetal organs.

According to a local news station, invoices from Stem Express, which gets their body parts from Planned Parenthood, showed Colorado State University purchased the fetal parts in 2013.

CSU said that they are suspending further acquisition of fetal tissue from Stem Express or any other vendors implicated in the Planned Parenthood operation.

The University claimed that they did not kow the course of the fetal tissue and that only one investigator at CSU used the tissue in research. They said the researcher had been
doing so for over 15 years.

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.”

Cost of fetal liver from Stem Express who procures babies from Planned Parenthood

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on July 29, 2015 by saynsumthn

Besides the invaluable cost of a human life, aborted babies are being harvested for their organs. One of the most valued parts if the liver, so I decided to see what a fetal liver actually costs.

After news that Stem Express was in the baby parts industry with Planned Parenthood, I started looking around to see what I could find.

Stem Express financial benefit Planned Parenthood 1

I have already written a little about them here and here if you’d care to read those posts.

After a little digging online, I happened upon a Stem Express catalog that has been removed.

But, a cached version still exists. For that reason, the screen grabs will look a little distorted than if the actual PDF was available.

What the document contains may explain Planned Parenthood’s desire for the livers of the babies they abort:

Standards Stem Express

In the 2013-2014 Stem Express Catalog, owner Cate Dyer, CEO brags that they are the largest provider of fetal tissue globally:

Cate Fyer of Stem Express fetal body parts

    The addition of new products is not the only area of growth we have experienced. Relocating our main headquarters into a new state-of-the-art facility added 17,000sqft to our workspace. The team has grown by 30%, recruiting people from companies such as Genentech and Telik. We added an on-site procurement center specializing in the collection of leukapheresis and bone marrow. Continuing to be an industry leader in procurement, we realized exponential growth with regard to human tissues such as cadaverous tissue, umbilical cord blood, diseased tissue and tumors. Finally, StemExpress is now the largest provider of maternal blood and fetal tissue globally

In the Center for Medical Progress videos exposing the Planned Parenthood / Stem Express aborted baby parts harvesting scheme, the need for fetal livers came up over and over again.

Planned Parenthood intact-livers

In the first video released, Planned Parenthood’s Senior Director of Medical Services Dr. Deborah Nucatola id heard telling what she thought was buyers of a Biotech company, “I’d say a lot of people want liver. And for that reason, most providers will do this case under ultrasound guidance, so they’ll know where they’re putting their forceps. The kind of rate-limiting step of the procedure is the calvarium, the head is basically the biggest part. Most of the other stuff can come out intact. It’s very rare to have a patient that doesn’t have enough dilation to evacuate all the other parts intact.”

planned-parenthood-video-crush-b

Nucatola went on to say how she would crush the unborn baby above and below the desired organ,” Exactly. So then you’re just kind of cognizant of where you put your graspers, you try to intentionally go above and below the thorax, so that, you know, we’ve been very good at getting heart, lung, liver, because we know that, so I’m not gonna crush that part, I’m going to 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, because when it’s vertex presentation, you never have enough dilation at the beginning of the case, unless you have real, huge amount of dilation to deliver an intact calvarium. So if you do it starting from the breech presentation, there’s dilation that happens as the case goes on, and often, the last, you can
evacuate an intact calvarium at the end. So I mean there are certainly steps that can be taken to try to ensure—

She goes onto to say that the abortionist can “change the presentation” to breech in what some think was describing an illegal Partial Birth Abortion.

More on owner Cate Dyer and the Stem Express beginnings from Sacramento State University:

    The company initially operated out of Dyer’s home in rural El Dorado County. Her initial investment was $9,000. Her first month’s income was $800 –and then the business took off, earning several hundred thousand dollars within 18 months. Dyer predicts that this year the company will double its 2013 revenue. StemExpress, with its sparkling cell-isolation laboratory and cutting-edge blood and bone marrow donation center, is headquartered in a sleek, 19,000-square-foot building in downtown Placerville. Dyer still maintains close ties to her alma mater. Seventy-five percent of her laboratory staff –including cell biologists, microbiologists and a geneticist –are Sacramento State alumni. And she hires Sac State students for summer internships. They are paid and receive college credit for their work.

    Among StemExpress’ clients are Yale, Harvard and Stanford universities and such companies as Genentech and Pfizer.

    “I got really comfortable with tissue and organs, and I loved the human body, loved all of it. I saw organ transplant teams come into the ER when a donor had died. The hospital needed someone to assist in organ collection, and I was good at procurement, so they tagged me to assist with the organ transplant teams. That’s when I got exposed to organ and tissue collection. That was the first ‘light bulb’ for me to start this company.”

    Dyer was employed by a small Bay Area company that specialized in collecting tissue for medical research. “I came in contact with researchers who said they waited six to eight months for adult liver tissue. I couldn’t believe it,” she says. “I asked, ‘Why don’t you get it from the transplant banks if they can’t use it?’ The thing is, the banks spend a lot of money doing that type of collection, and they’re not about to hand it over to a researcher for $500 or $1,000. Transplantable corneas are worth about $24,000 to eye banks, for example. So I became passionate trying to figure out how to change those things. I didn’t know where it would lead. I just saw it as a problem and wanted to fix it.”

Stem Express is now a multi-million dollar company that provides human blood and tissues for researchers all around the world.

Dyer said that samples can get as specific as age, gender and ethnicity, she told a local news outlet.
