ABORTION IN THE NEWS



Planned Parenthood Caught Selling Baby Body Parts


Planned Parenthood Selling Illegal Fetal TissueIt was at a typical upscale lunch with a glass of red wine and a nice salad that Planned Parenthood's director of medical services, Dr. Deborah Nucatola, was caught on video casually discussing how hearts, lungs, and other organs in babies about to be aborted can best be preserved by crushing the lower portion of the body first and then the upper portion, while keeping the torso intact to save the valuable organs inside which can be sold to research labs for prices between $30 and $100 each. She went on to explain how the heads of unborn babies aborted command top dollar over the organs. To preserve the heads, however, it is necessary for the abortionist to reverse the position of the baby so he or she can be aborted feet first, thus allowing the head to come out intact.

Since this video was released just a few short days ago, it has caused a firestorm on news networks, in state legislatures, and now in Congress with cries of disgust and repulsion at every level. The video was produced covertly by the Center for Medical Progress in Irvine, California, and can be seen at their website http://www.centerformedicalprogress.org/cmp/investigative-footage/.

Meanwhile, Planned Parenthood has scurried to find explanations and provide apologizes for Dr. Nucatola's crass comments. The President of Planned Parenthood, Cecile Richards, gave a very week apology by inferring that the statements and tone were unacceptable. Meanwhile, six state legislatures have already started probes into Planned Parenthood's activities; and countless Congressmen have called for the defunding of Planned Parenthood, which receives over $500,000,000 annually in federal tax dollars.

Planned Parenthood's legal problems over this are several. It is illegal for abortionists to make a profit on tissue donations; it is illegal for abortion procedures to be altered to obtain fetal tissues; and it is illegal for Planned Parenthood, a nonprofit organization to profit by selling fetal organs. Meanwhile, a Congressional committee investigating this has called upon Dr. Nucatola to appear before the Congressional committee by July 31 for testimony.

Dr. Nucatola has overseen Planned Parenthood's medical practices at all their locations for the last seven years, along with training abortion doctors and performing abortions herself through six months of pregnancy. Is it possible that the length of time and the direct contact she has had with aborting thousands of babies has caused her to be so callous and unfeeling?
