Planned Parenthood’s Pitiful Defense of the Selling of Aborted Baby Parts

The video evidence is too clear to deny, as a powerful Planned Parenthood leader discusses the sale of baby parts – livers, limbs, tissue, and hearts – while casually eating her dinner, even describing how partial birth abortion is used to preserve those body parts which are in particular demand.

The leader in question is Planned Parenthood’s Senior Director of Medical Services, Dr. Deborah Nucatola, caught in a shocking undercover video that is sickening viewers as quickly as it is going viral. (The video excerpts we posted on my ministry’s Facebook page were viewed more than 500,000 times in the first 10 hours, while the post itself reached well over 2 million Facebook users in that same period of time.)

In response, Planned Parenthood issued a pathetic, truly unbelievable explanation for this barbaric practice, as if the slaughter of the baby in the womb was not enough. No. The tiny infant’s body parts must be trafficked as well.

According to LifeNews.com, on the video, “Nucatola admits that Planned Parenthood charges per-specimen for baby body parts, uses illegal partial-birth abortion procedures in order to get salable parts, and is aware of their own liability for doing so and takes steps to cover it up.”

Answering these charges, Planned Parenthood alleged that the video was heavily edited (which begs the question of whether the videographers actually put the damning words on Dr. Nucatola’s or whether she said them herself) and that their organization was actually engaging in an altruistic, life-saving practice: “At several of our health centers, we help patients who want to donate tissue for scientific research, and we do this just like every other high-quality health care provider does — with full, appropriate consent from patients and under the highest ethical and legal standards. There is no financial benefit for tissue donation for either the patient or Planned Parenthood. In some instances, actual costs, such as the cost to transport tissue to leading research centers, are reimbursed, which is standard across the medical field.”

Aside from noting that Planned Parenthood could not have readily admitted that they’re engaging in the illegal practice of selling baby parts, Christian attorney David French encourages readers to, “Watch the tape again. Does it appear to you that the discussion deals only with reimbursement? The Center for Medical Progress — the entity that created the video — has posted a flyer that it claims was distributed to Planned Parenthood clinics and that promises ‘financial profits’ from the ‘raw materials’ that are ‘usually discarded during obstetrical procedures.’”

You tell me what that’s talking about.

French also writes, “I have to laugh when Planned Parenthood claims to abide by the ‘highest ethical and legal standards.’ Their business model is an abomination. And it is pitiful to use the phrase ‘appropriate consent’ to describe the deliberate killing of an innocent human being, with the killing performed in such a way as to preserve a ‘menu’ of the most valuable parts.”

The stark reality remains that if Planned Parenthood has its way, when a pregnant mother and her unborn child walk into their clinic, only the mother will walk out alive – deprived of her baby and her money, with the possibility that the little one, after being killed in the womb for profit, will then be sold for profit.

Now is the time to expose Planned Parenthood and strip it of its favored status with the government. (We can each encourage our elected officials to investigate them.)

And now is the time to expose the founder of Planned Parentood, Margaret Sanger, as arguably the architect of the greatest genocide in human history. (Others have exposed her before, but the nation as a whole still seems unaware.)

Tragically, it was our radically pro-abortion president, Barack Obama, who said to Planned Parenthood in 2013, “God bless you,” despite all the blood on their hands and despite their “long track record of covering up sexual abuse and rape.”

The only question that remains is: How much longer will our merciful Father allow this barbarism to continue? He is also a righteous Judge, and He hears the cries and feels the pain of the little ones.
