The Center for Medical Progress has just released its seventh video documenting its undercover interactions with Planned Parenthood. Many chilling activities have come to light in the last few weeks, but possibly none reach the level of what is alleged here: that Planned Parenthood allows infants to be delivered alive in order to procure the best possible samples of body parts.
The video is below, along with five key quotes. A warning: some of the footage may be disturbing.
FIVE KEY QUOTES:
1.) PP Senior Medical Director: “Providers that use digoxin use it for one of two reasons. There is a group of people who just use it so that they have no risk of violating the federal abortion ban, which is if you induce the demise before you do the procedure, nobody’s going to say you did a … partial birth abortion.”
2.) Novogenix Laboratories Executive Director: “So, you know, there are times when after the procedure is done, the heart is actually still beating…”
3.)Former Stem Express employee: “I don’t know if that [a heartbeat] constitutes it’s technically dead or it’s alive.”
4.) Surgery Center Director: “The other thing that plays a tremendous part in this all, is um, the dilation that you’ve obtained. And also, whether, how, for lack of a better word, how cooperative the patient is during the procedure.”
5.) Former Stem Express employee: “It had a face—it wasn’t completely torn up… And since the fetus was still so intact, she said, ‘Ok well this is a really good fetus, and it looks like we can procure a lot from it. We’re going to procure a brain.’ The moment I hear this, I think, ‘that means we’re going to have to cut the head open.’”
