The Center for Medical Progress’s undercover video investigation of Planned Parenthood is not for the faint of heart. Video No. 8 is no exception. In its latest release, the CMP has unveiled footage of a StemExpress CEO bragging about Planned Parenthood’s fetal body parts supply as a “volume institution.”
Planned Parenthood has had a long-time partnership with the for-profit biotech supply company StemExpress, the latter of which has purchased fetal tissue from the controversial organization. Today, the CMP’s new video uncovers StemExpress CEO Cate Dyer praising Planned Parenthood for providing them “a lot” of intact fetuses. She described the disturbing process with ease:
“Oh yeah, I mean if you have intact cases, which we’ve done a lot, we sometimes ship those back to our lab in its entirety,” replies Dyer. “The entire case?” asks an actor. “Yeah, yeah,” says Dyer. “The procurement for us, I mean it can go really sideways, depending on the facility, and then our samples are destroyed."
The CMP then prompted Dyer to provide more detail on her relationship with Planned Parenthood, which she seemed happy to do:
“What would make your lab happy?” asks one of the actors. “Another 50 livers a week,” says Dyer. “We’re working with almost like triple digit number clinics,” Dyer explains, “and we still need more.” She later notes, “Planned Parenthood has volume, because they are a volume institution.”
Since these undercover Planned Parenthood videos have surfaced, StemExpress has split with the organization, several states have announced they’re defunding it and investigating it, and Congress has brought forward legislation to end its taxpayer funding, which amounts to more than $500 million a year.
Rep. Diane Black (R-TN), who’s leading the effort in the House, joined guest host Sarah Palin on One America News Network’s “On Point” Monday night to talk about the bill, as well as expose Planned Parenthood’s pro-abortion hypocrisy:
“You don’t get a lung, a heart, or other body parts from a 'blob of tissue.'”
