For some people, the abortion issue is complicated. There’s the line, some extensions of the line, the grey areas, and the loopholes. Very few people, despite what you might hear from the media, support abortion on demand through an entire pregnancy. Far more people support abortion restrictions as a pregnancy progresses later in the term.
For a larger percentage of the population abortion is filled with what-ifs and lines to be crossed. Someone might claim to be pro-life but support abortion in the case of rape. That’s not a pro-life position. That’s supporting abortion. If abortion is morally wrong, and it is, then it’s always wrong. The circumstances for the conception of a child don’t change the reality that killing a living human being is wrong. Supporting abortion the case of rape then, is also wrong.
Daleiden and a partner secretly taped the videos, released over the last year, as they conversed with a number of Planned Parenthood executives directly responsible for obtaining and selling the body parts. As they were released to the public a great outcry ensued. Planned Parenthood (PP) CEO Cecile Richards immediately went into damage control mode as she tried to convince the American people that PP did nothing wrong.
Richards and the PP media machine went into overdrive to discredit the videos, saying they were doctored. Daleiden responded by releasing the unedited footage. So Richards went on a media tour explaining that there was no profit from the sale of the body parts. Again, Daleiden released footage to the contrary. At every turn the videos undermined what PP said and showed that the abortion merchant is a criminal organization.
This is almost too egregious to believe. And yet the headlines are no joke and make it very clear that Planned Parenthood and their bought-off political allies will stop at nothing to advance their pro-death movement.
David Daleiden, the man that released the undercover videos exposing the sale of aborted baby body parts by Planned Parenthood had his home raided by politicians in California. The California Attorney General, Kamala Harris, ordered the raid on Daleiden’s home. Besides the obvious violation of Daleiden’s First Amendment rights, this is a particularly horrendous crime due to the fact that the people raiding his home have been paid by Planned Parenthood. A recent article reports:
The Center for Medical Progress (CMP) has released a 12th undercover video showing that Planned Parenthood actively changes the abortion procedure to harvest fully intact “specimens” to sell.
The latest video features Jennefer Russo, medical director at Planned Parenthood in Orange County, California, telling undercover investigators how her clinic seeks to harvest fully intact babies in order to sell the bodies to a bioscience company. In case you didn’t know, knowingly altering the abortion procedure is a federal crime. Selling fetal body parts for profit is also a federal crime. The undercover videos released by CMP have proven definitively that Planned Parenthood has daily broken both of those federal laws.
You might be wondering why Planned Parenthood has not faced any criminal charges. Why hasn’t anyone been arrested? The truth is that Planned Parenthood is protected by the most pro-abortion president in United States history. President Obama has repeatedly “blessed” Planned Parenthood for their work and given billions of dollars in tax-money to the abortion business despite objections from Americans. (Hillary Clinton is a big fan of Planned Parenthood as well.)
A recent article carried comments by CMP president David Daleiden regarding the shocking revelations uncovered by the undercover video:
A newly released video by The Center for Medical Progress (CMP) reveals the deceitful accounting tactics used by Planned Parenthood to profit in the sale of aborted baby body parts. The video (posted below) shares a conversation between CMP investigative journalist David Daleiden and a Planned Parenthood Director of Research Melissa Farrell.
The accounting gimmick used involves using dual invoices and subtle phrasing in order to charge extremely high prices for “specimens” that cost Planned Parenthood virtually nothing. This means Planned Parenthood was making a great deal of profit on each “specimen” it sold; a practice that is blatantly illegal. A recent article shares some detail:
“Daleiden says the system of accounting gimmicks and dual invoicing for “consent” payments in place of fetal specimens that Melissa Farrell describes in the video bears a striking resemblance to invoices submitted by Farrell on behalf of PPGC to the University of Texas Medical Branch in 2010 and 2011. In these documents, obtained through a Public Information Act request, two PPGC invoices for the exact same billing period charge $25 per “Consents obtained,” with a total quantity of 32, and in the same time period charges $150 per “Consent payment” for a smaller quantity of 25. This is consistent with a scheme where Planned Parenthood charged $25 to consent abortion patients to supply fetal tissue, and then charged another $150 for each usable fetal specimen that UTMB could procure.”
I’m typically a big fan of Texas.
Texas is a place where steak is served at every meal, guns are encouraged, and the San Antonio Spurs call home. Oh, and I was born in Texas. All in all Texas is a great place that many states could learn from.
However, Texas has recently made headlines for something that defies the imagination.
By now most people are aware that a series of undercover videos exposed the illegal and barbaric practices of Planned Parenthood in selling aborted baby body parts for money. The videos have been so damning to the abortion business that many states are cutting funding to Planned Parenthood and a majority of Americans want federal funding cut. (That’s not likely to happen as long as the most pro-abortion president in US history is in office. Think before you vote.)
David Daleiden and his group, the Center for Medical Progress, spent several years undercover secretly videotaping conversations with Planned Parenthood executives about their daily practices in securing aborted baby body parts to be sold for money. The videos caught many high-ranking Planned Parenthood executives discussing the practice as if they were selling used auto parts. It was nonchalant to them. Some remain proud of their actions today.
The latest undercover Planned Parenthood video shows us more of the same callousness toward human life that we’ve become accustomed to with Planned Parenthood. In the video, Dr. Amna Dermish can be seen describing her procedure for organ harvesting. Looking at some of her comments it’s clear that there is no remorse for her actions. That alone is deeply disturbing. Take a look at some of the things she said:
“It was trunk intact, so usually what I do, if it’s a breech presentation, I’ll remove the extremities first, the lower extremities, and then go for the spine and sort of bring it down that way.”
“I always try to keep the trunk intact. Always trying to aim for the spine to bring it down. It just makes the procedure easier.”
“One of our POC persons is really into organ development. She’ll pull out kidneys, and heart and like heart we frequently see at nine weeks and she always looks for it.”
Dermish and another Planned Parenthood affiliate described the heart as “cute” when they harvest it. As if it was a game and the not the callous murder of an unborn child. But what they also show us is the humanity of the unborn. If the heart can be harvested at 9 weeks then it is beating. When someone stops a beating heart it is usually considered murder.
Efforts have been made to censor the footage almost since the day the very first undercover Planned Parenthood video was released. Planned Parenthood and their affiliates and partners have tried to keep the videos from the public in order to keep their whitewashed image squeaky clean. The mainstream media has been a willing partner in that effort. Nonetheless, the videos have been released and sparked public outrage over the bloody business of harvesting aborted baby body parts for profit.
The video below, however, was released by hackers.
The videos were first released to the Congressional committee investigating Planned Parenthood. Someone, from somewhere on the inside leaked the videos to the public. When a legal firm issued a cease and desist order the videos were then hacked and released to the public. Here’s some commentary on the content of the new series of videos:
The man behind the undercover videos that exposed the atrocities of planned Parenthood shared with Glenn Beck a memorable moment when he believed he encountered “evil” at a Planned Parenthood clinic. David Daleiden told Beck that while he was at the clinic of a late-term abortionist, a woman that routinely kills babies days before they are supposed to be born, he had a moment when he felt the “evil” of the abortion clinic:
“And for the first time during this entire project, I felt really afraid, like an actual fear, a fight-or-flight kind of response. I felt very exposed, like she knew everything about me. And then all of a sudden … back to laughing and joking, totally casual, normal. And I talked about that with several people afterwards, and some people have kind of a spiritual interpretation, and others have a more psychological interpretation. But on some level, we feel like that was the predator look or the predator instinct that you see in someone who is accustomed to killing people.
Over the last 3 months ten videos exposing the atrocious practices of Planned Parenthood have been released. The Center for Medical Progress began releasing the videos in July, for the purpose of showing how Planned Parenthood traffics aborted baby body parts. The 10 videos are at times very graphic and the conversations are almost too disturbing to believe. But these videos, taken over the course of several years, have exposed the evil of Planned Parenthood and reignited a fire to defund the abortion group and hold them accountable.
Below is all 10 videos and a brief description of what is contained on each. A big thanks to Mollie Hemingway at The Federalist for her work compiling this list. Take a moment to review each video and consider sharing this information with others. As more people discover the treachery of Planned Parenthood more progress is made to hold them accountable. One thing I want to make clear about these videos is that they are, in fact, authentic. Independent tests have shown that no manipulation or altering has been done, the videos are authentic and real.

1) Planned Parenthood Uses Partial-Birth Abortions to Sell Baby Parts: This 9-minute-video with more than 3 million views on YouTube features Dr. Deborah Nucatola, Planned Parenthood’s senior director for medical services, munching on a salad and sipping wine while she admits to altering abortion procedures in such a way that baby body parts can later be sold to human organ buyers. Laws prohibit altering abortion procedures for organ procurement.
