The Center for Medical Progress just released an investigative video, and it is absolutely shocking.
The key quote from Planned Parenthood Senior Director of Medical Services Dr. Deborah Nucatola:
A lot of people want intact hearts these days…Yesterday was the first time she said people wanted lungs. And then, like I said, always as many intact livers as possible. People just want — some people just want lower extremities too, which, that’s simple. That’s easy.
Here are three quick takeaways from this news:
1.) Planned Parenthood is ignoring the ban on partial-birth abortion.
Partial-birth abortion is a federal felony punishable by up to 2 years in prison and/or a fine up to $250,000. (18 U.S. Code 1531)
A fetus extracted intact and alive during an abortion is a born-alive infant under federal law and any further action taken to kill him or her is homicide.
Here’s what Nucatola said about that law:
The Federal [Partial-Birth] Abortion Ban is a law… and laws are up for interpretation. So if I say on Day One that I did not intend to do this, what ultimately happens doesn’t matter.
2.) Planned Parenthood is aborting babies and selling their body parts to unknown buyers.
This is real life, not a reading from Jonathan Swift’s “A Modest Proposal.” In fact, Nucatola said that abortionists often perform abortions in specific ways to preserve certain body parts:
So then you’re just kind of cognizant of where you put your graspers, you try to intentionally go above and below the thorax, so that, you know, we’ve been very good at getting heart, lung, liver… so I’m not going to crush that part. I’m going to basically crush below, I’m going to crush above, and I’m gonna see if I can get it all intact.
3.) Planned Parenthood is exploiting women.
Planned Parenthood has long been known to coerce women. Their CEO, Cecile Richards, often talks about how they care for women. Now, abortion is no longer a “health” procedure but a harvesting procedure, treating women as no more than breeding pods to procure baby organs for unknown buyers.
This is literally the definition of exploitation. Women are paying Planned Parenthood to profit off their babies’ organs. Absolutely sick.
The Republican presidential candidates would be wise to talk about this on the campaign trail. Hillary Clinton backs this evil organization 100 percent.
