  • PP in Texas admits to Altering Abortions for a Better Harvest and Profit

    warning video gets graphic at the end


    official press release

    HOUSTON, Aug. 4–The fifth undercover video in the controversy over Planned Parenthood’s sale of aborted baby parts shows the Director of Research for Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast, Melissa Farrell, advertising the Texas Planned Parenthood branch’s track record of fetal tissue sales, including its ability to deliver fully intact fetuses.

    In the video, actors posing as representatives from a human biologics company meet with Farrell at the abortion-clinic headquarters of Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast in Houston to discuss a potential partnership to harvest fetal organs.

    “Where we probably have an edge over other organizations, our organization has been doing research for many many years,” explains Farrell. When researchers need a specific part from the aborted fetus, Farrell says, “We bake that into our contract, and our protocol, that we follow this, so we deviate from our standard in order to do that.”

    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.”

    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). Federal law also 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).

    Farrell also indicates to the investigators over lunch that the specimen sales from her department contribute significantly to Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast’s overall finances: “I think everyone realizes, especially because my department contributes so much to the bottom line of our organization here, you know we’re one of the largest affiliates, our Research Department is the largest in the United States. Larger than any the other affiliates’ combined.” In a Texas Senate hearing on July 29, former Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast clinic director Abby Johnson estimated that the affiliate had previously made up to $120,000 per month off of aborted fetal tissue

    also the editing in the fifth video is better as they allow for the conversations to flow for a
    longer period without swicthing to the next section.

      the law: no alteration of the timing, method, or procedures used to terminate the pregnancy was made solely for the purposes of obtaining the tissue

      PP:Yeah, we can work it out in the context of—obviously, the procedure is more complicated. So that anything that we integrate into that procedure, without having you cover the procedural cost, is going to be higher. So anything of a higher gestational age, there’s more opportunity for complication, there’s more administrative time involved,

      PP: Sometimes the procedures are longer. So then, anything that we piggy-back onto that for collection purposes, obviously, would have to, that additional time, cost, administrative burden.

      Verdict: ABSOLUTELY GUILTY in breaking the law. throw them all in prison.

          Profit ? Planned Parenthood is a non-profit organization . Its employees don't work there hoping to become rich , because this is impossible for them .
          A shadowy radical anti-choice organization called the "Center for medical progress " has been doctoring videos of converstions at PP in order to make it look as though it harvests organs for profit .
          This is illegal, and PP has never doen this . All it does is to donate fetal tissue for vital medical research, and only with the consent of its patients . This is not illegal at all
          Don't bklame Planned Parenthood for abortions happenng . They would actually be much more common then they are without it, and if PP is defunded , which would not only be idiotic but disastrous, watch the abortion rate INCREASE markedly in America .
          Look - abortions will happen whether they are legal or not and defunding PP or shutting it down will do absolutely NOTHING to stop abortion in America .

            You know, that video was edited by an anti abortion christian group bearing false witness against planned parenthood. Hmmm... wasn't there something in a book christians like to quote about bearing false witness?

              Planned Parenthood doesn't profit off of killing children . That would be the NRA .
