Life Legal Defense Foundations was finally able to reveal its sponsorship of a two-year sting operation proving that Planned Parenthood routinely sells organs and tissues of babies aborted in its self-proclaimed “health centers.” This systematic profiteering is known about and approved by officers at the abortion giant’s highest levels of authority. Planned Parenthood’s abortionists will even alter the abortion method in order to guarantee the tissues most sought after—regardless of what might be best for the aborting mother.
The shocking results of the investigation are being unveiled in a series of videos posted on the website of the Center for Medical Progress. The first video, released on July 14, 2015, immediately went viral and caused the site to crash two hours after opening. By the next day, several congressional committees had announced that hearings would be held to investigate whether Planned Parenthood was trafficking in fetal organs.
This “Human Capital” project was a nearly three-year-long undertaking of the Center for Medical Progress (CMP). Directed by CMP Project Lead David Daleiden, the effort secured audio and video recordings of Planned Parenthood administrators and abortionists casually agreeing to sell freshly-extracted parts from their abortions.
Among those recorded in Daleiden’s operation are prominent Planned Parenthood officers, including Dr. Deborah Nucatola, Senior Director of Medical Services, Planned Parenthood Federation of America:
“So I say, ‘what are you looking to supply today?”
[Later] “We have been very good at [getting] heart, lung, liver … because we know that, so I’m not gonna crush that part, I’m gonna basically crush below, I’m gonna crush what is above, and I’m gonna see if I can get it all intact.”
Cecile Richards, President and CEO of the Planned Parenthood Federation of America:
[Acknowledging the work of Dr. Nucatola] “Oh great. She’s amazing….”
Dr. Mary Gatter, President, Medical Directors’ Council, PPFA:
[Asked if $100 per sample would “keep her happy”] “I want a Lamborghini….”
Life Legal gives the credit for these revelations to David Daleiden. But David Daleiden gives a lot of credit to Life Legal: “Life Legal demonstrated both initiative and foresight in providing seed money for the Human Capital Project. Life Legal had no way of knowing that the project would succeed in the long run. Their advice and assistance has been essential!”
Familiar as we are with the contract killer’s practices, Life Legal can’t claim to be surprised by Planned Parenthood’s utter disregard for medical ethics. But we are delighted that it has been so ably and thoroughly documented by David Daleiden.
Life Legal is proud to have played an active, essential role in exposing Planned Parenthood’s ghoulish work. Katie Short, Life Legal’s Vice-President for Legal Affairs, remarked, “Planned Parenthood’s unconscionable acts are recorded and proven. But if there are to be further consequences, the public needs to keep the pressure on. After these revelations, the first thing every public official should be asked is why a penny of taxpayer money is going to fund any part of Planned Parenthood’s activities.”
“But beyond that,” Short emphasized, “we should not lose sight of the fact that these horrific acts are taking place against a backdrop of legal baby-killing. When all the investigations are over and the laws about fetal tissue trafficking have been examined and re-examined, will we still be a country that tolerates the mutilation, dismemberment, and killing of preborn children?”
Having been with the project from its inception, Life Legal is committed to following through. Planned Parenthood will not lightly escape the judgment it has merited by trafficking in babies’ eyes, hearts, livers, muscles, and other organs and tissues.
