The National Abortion Federation and StemExpress are still aggressively pursuing TROs on Center for Medical Progress, the former pushing a judge in California to extend their TRO until the end of the month pending a hearing on August 27th.
The videos in question, however, don’t feature Planned Parenthood’s executives or clinic staff, so today, the CMP released a fifth video on Planned Parenthood’s baby parts practice, this time depicting the director of research for Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast, Melissa Farell, happily negotiating for the release of an intact fetus for scientific experimentation, a practice that she says makes her a top contributor to her region’s bottom line.
The video goes into great detail – including gory photos of a 20-week-old child being harvested for spare parts, so I don’t recommend viewing it without a wastebasket nearby.
I suppose the need to pad that bottom line so aggressively, because they just can’t get enough funding from the Federal government to do their jobs?
Asked specifically if this means Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast can change abortion procedures to supply intact fetal specimens, Farrell affirms, “Some of our doctors in the past have projects and they’re collecting the specimens, so they do it in a way that they get the best specimens, so I know it can happen.”
The investigators ask Farrell how she will frame a contract in which they pay a higher price for higher quality fetal body parts, and she replies, “We can work it out in the context of–obviously, the procedure itself is more complicated,” suggesting that “without having you cover the procedural cost” and paying for the abortion, the higher specimen price could be framed as “additional time, cost, administrative burden.”
Farrell finally summarizes her affiliate’s approach to fetal tissue payments: “If we alter our process, and we are able to obtain intact fetal cadavers, we can make it part of the budget that any dissections are this, and splitting the specimens into different shipments is this. It’s all just a matter of line items.”
What keeps striking me about all these videos is that in literally every single interaction, the person CMP encounters is always a woman. No matter how cold and caluclating the response they get is, it always comes from a female employee of the clinic. I don’t know if this is just because Planned Parenthood employs more women than men overall, or whether PP tends to promote women into positions of authority more often, but as a well-known graduate of lady-university myself (having been one since birth), I cannot honestly comprehend being so blase about these “fetuses.” These are supposed to be the nations foremost advocates for women, and they seem to be more concerned with their bottom line.
Anyway, the real loser in this video is, apparently, Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast, who just a week ago, assured Louisana Governor Bobby Jindal that they were not involved with the baby parts trade. Unless they got out of it very recently, this video definitely begs to differ. And when Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast took to the Internet to “clear the air” about the process, they released this:
Texas Governor Greg Abbott has wasted no time in returning to the open investigation.
