EDITORIAL: I never considered myself part of either the pro-life or pro-choice groups. I know quite a few women who have had an abortion, mostly because I was a single mom and knew other young women in desperate times. While I didn’t take a stand either way, I did take some of these women to clinics where they went to get information on birth control and abortion. I do believe in family planning.
I had a neighbor who was 19 and pregnant with her 3rd child. She was married at 16. I met her when she was on her second but didn’t know her well. I was in my 20s and had 3 kids of my own. I was 19 and single when I had my first. The father has always been involved but we never married. I lived in a family neighborhood of struggling young families with my husband and 3 kids. We all got by together and life was pretty good, even if it was lean.
I made extra money giving people rides along with many other odd jobs. Kelly needed all the help she could get so I’d take her with me when I could so she could get her errands done. A friendship developed. She confided she couldn’t handle another child but she thought she was pregnant again. We talked birth control of which she knew very little about. I don’t agree with pro-life that contraception is the same as abortion. They are not. One destroys life, one stops life from being created. Per the Bible, one is murder, the other is not being fruitful. Two separate issues. We discussed this as she was catholic and I was baptist.
Anyway, she asked if I would take her to a clinic. She wasn’t even sure how far along she might be. I figured she’d get good information and if she was pregnant, she needed care, so of course I agreed. She made the appointment and the day it was scheduled, we went.
She came out after some time and she was upset. She was definitely pregnant. We got in the car and headed home. This is when she told me she had wanted to get an abortion and that’s why we were really there. The problem, she said, was that she was 4 months pregnant already. They told her they could still do the abortion but she’d have to pay in cash. They were very poor so that wasn’t happening. Her insurance wouldn’t pay after 4 months so she was too close to be covered. I was horrified and she was shocked. We went home in silence.
The next day, I went to the police department where the clinic was located and asked to speak to a detective. I told him what had happened, explaining that for cash, this clinic would abort a baby that could survive. He wrote up a report. He took my complaint very seriously and said he’d contact me once he did some research.
After a week or so, he called to tell me the results of his investigation. At the time this happened, it was perfectly legal to abort babies all the way up to full term in Michigan. The detective, I could tell, was just as disturbed as I was to have learned this fact. He apologized for not being able to do more and expressed his own concerns over the laws. Having no resolution, we both hung up our phones.
Now here we are, over 30 years later, and not only is it still perfectly legal to deliver and kill sustainable babies in America, we have people defending these crimes and the subsequent brokering of the dissection and sale of these babies being delivered live, who are being cultivated and meticulously murdered, specifically for the sale of their very viable organs and body parts.
The evidence that there is absolutely no dignity or respect for human life or the women/patients whose care are in the hands of these barbarians is so overwhelming, it’s horrific to know that there are people in our nation, including our own president, who are still protecting and funding them. How terrifying to realize exactly what type of world we created and live in today. It’s like something you hear about happening in 3rd world countries by evil dictators like Saddam Hussein or Bin Laden. And we’d be screaming to send in our troops to save them. Where’s the troops for our children??
When you consider the unethically and immoral behavior that is obviously quite common at Planned Parenthood, you cannot begin to know what they or their ‘middlemen’ are truly doing with these dead babies, their organs and their parts. There are elitists who want the fountain of youth, who are satanists, cannibals, in search of unethical use of stem cells, DNA and genetic testing. We are a nation who has allowed this organization to go unregulated and uninvestigated for over 40 years. Now we’re supposed to trust that the ‘guys’ they work with are ethical and legal?
I don’t even trust the research happening at colleges and universities in America anymore. These campuses have been infiltrated by the most extreme of these liberal democrats where we’ve watched firsthand the indoctrination of our youth into their lawless, immoral and violent system. Liberal extremist professors are running our system of higher education. I don’t trust anyone who has touched this network of criminals until a full investigation is completed by someone who is not affiliated with pro-choice or Planned Parenthood.
In the meantime, this entire company (it’s not a non-profit so stop calling it that) has to be shut down immediately. All funding must be stopped, all assets frozen and nobody’s leaving town so lock down those passports. Come on People, heinous crimes HAVE been committed here. We know the steps that are supposed to be taken.
We must stop this atrocity against humanity. Our nation’s very heart and soul is ripping in two right now. It really is a matter of good versus evil and so far, the past 40 years our nation has been in the hands of Satan himself. We can, we have to change that fact. It’s time for God to take back America. I’m praying for ‘One Nation under God’. Time to send these demons to the same Hell they’ve created!
6th Shocking Video Catches Planned Parenthood Selling Aborted Babies Without Patient Consent
The pro-life advocates behind the five shocking videos exposing Planned Parenthood selling the body parts of aborted babies for research have released a 6th video today that shows how the abortion business sells body parts of aborted babies without patient consent.
The video features Holly O’Donnell, a licensed phlebotomist who unsuspectingly took a job as a “procurement technician” at the fetal tissue company and biotech start-up StemExpress in late 2012. That’s the company that acts as a middleman and purchases the body parts of aborted babies from Planned Parenthood to sell to research universities and other places.
The new video includes O’Donnell’s eyewitness narrative of the daily practice of fetal body parts harvesting in Planned Parenthood abortion clinics, describing tissue procurement workers’ coordination with abortion providers, the pressure placed on patients, and disregard for patient consent.
As a procurement tech, O’Donnell’s job was to identify pregnant patients matching the specifications of StemExpress customers and to harvest the fetal body parts from their abortions. She essentially says Planned Parenthood is violating federal law by not properly obtaining the consent from women who have abortions to sell their aborted baby or baby’s body parts.
“It’s not an option, it’s a demand,” StemExpress supervisors instructed O’Donnell about approaching pregnant women at Planned Parenthood for fetal tissue “donations.” O’Donnell says the StemExpress techs working in Planned Parenthood clinics sometimes harvested fetal parts without obtaining consent from the patients: “If there was a higher gestation, and the technicians needed it, there were times when they would just take what they wanted. And these mothers don’t know. And there’s no way they would know.”
“You have to make sure you get her,” O’Donnell’s colleague told her, but O’Donnell said the woman having the abortion had refused consent.
“I’m not going to tell a girl to kill her baby just to get money,” O’Donell says of Planned Parenthood, “and that’s what this company does. Straight up. That’s what this company does.”
Federal laws on the procurement and use of human fetal tissue require that patients consent to the tissue donation subsequent to consenting to the abortion procedure (42 U.S.C. 289g-1).
According to O’Donnell, Planned Parenthood gave StemExpress workers access to patient records and schedules so that the harvesting company could plan for the days when patient “supply” would be greatest.
“They give you a sheet, and it’s everybody for that day, who’s coming in for an ultrasound, who’s coming in for an abortion, medical or a late-term abortion,” O’Donnell explains. Even patients just seeking a pregnancy test at Planned Parenthood were considered part of the supply: “Pregnancy tests are potential pregnancies, therefore potential specimens. So it’s just taking advantage of the opportunities.”
Commenting on the latest video, David Daleiden, the head of The Center for Medical Progress, which has released all of the expose’ videos, told LifeNews: “Experiences like Holly O’Donnell’s show that Planned Parenthood’s abortion and baby parts business is not a safe place where vulnerable women can be cared for, but a harvesting ground for saleable human ‘product.’ Taxpayer subsidies to Planned Parenthood’s barbaric abortion business should be revoked immediately, and law enforcement and other elected officials must act decisively to determine the full extent of Planned Parenthood’s offensive practices and hold them accountable to the law.”
Watch the newest video below:
For six months, O’Donnell’s job was to identify pregnant women at Planned Parenthood who met criteria for fetal tissue orders and to harvest the fetal body parts after their abortions.
“I thought I was going to be just drawing blood, not procuring tissue from aborted fetuses,” says O’Donnell, who fainted in shock on her first day of work in a Planned Parenthood clinic when suddenly asked to dissect a freshly-aborted fetus during her on-the-job training.
O’Donnell describes the financial benefit Planned Parenthood received from StemExpress: “For whatever we could procure, they would get a certain percentage. The main nurse was always trying to make sure we got our specimens. No one else really cared, but the main nurse did because she knew that Planned Parenthood was getting compensated.”
The most recent Planned Parenthood expose’ video, which follows Senate Democrats defeating a bill to de-fund Planned Parenthood, makes it appear the Planned Parenthood abortion business may be selling the “fully intact” bodies of unborn babies purposefully born alive and left to die.
As LifeNews reported, the first video of undercover footage shows Planned Parenthood Federation of America’s Senior Director of Medical Services, Dr. Deborah Nucatola, describing how Planned Parenthood sells the body parts of aborted unborn children and admitting she uses partial-birth abortions to supply intact body parts.
In the second video, Planned Parenthood doctor Mary Gatter discusses the pricing of aborted baby body parts — telling the biotech company officials that the prices for such things as a baby’s liver, head or heart are negotiable. She also tells the officials that she could talk with the Planned Parenthood abortion practitioners to potentially alter the abortion procedure to kill the baby in a way that would best preserve those body parts after the unborn child is killed in the abortion.
So far, 12 states have responded to the Planned Parenthood videos and launched investigations into their abortion and organ harvesting business including South Carolina, Florida, Tennessee,Massachusetts, Kansas, Missouri, Arizona, Indiana, Ohio, Georgia, Texas and Louisiana. The district attorney in Houston Texas is also investigating after the Houston-based Planned Parenthood abortion facility was caught selling aborted babies.
Congress has expanded its investigation into the Planned Parenthood abortion business and three states have revoked taxpayer funding for Planned Parenthood’s abortion business, includingAlabama, New Hampshire and Louisiana.
The full, unedited videos have confirmed that revelations that some aborted baby remains sold by Planned Parenthood go to biotech companies for the purpose of creating “humanized” mice. Meanwhile, Planned Parenthood has been exposed as having sold body parts from aborted babies for as much as 15 years.
