Director of LA chapter admits on film to selling hearts, livers and skulls harvested from babies killed
A disturbing hidden camera video out of Los Angeles features a Planned Parenthood clinician discussing the practice of selling the body parts of aborted babies in blatant violation of federal law.
In the video, part one of a 3-part documentary series from The Center for Medical Progress, Planned Parenthood Senior Director Dr. Deborah Nucatola explains to a male and female couple over lunch how the procedure goes down and which human organs are most popular.
“I’d say a lot of people want liver,” Dr. Nucatola says. “And for that reason, most providers will do this case under ultrasound guidance, so they’ll know where they’re putting their forceps. The kind of rate-limiting step of the procedure is calvarium. Calvarium—the head—is basically the biggest part.”
Dr. Nucatola nonchalantly describes that the “calvarium” fetches the highest price, and that prices for body parts generally range from $30 to $100, all while eating a salad.
“We’ve 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 above, and I’m gonna see if I can get it all intact,” the abortion doctor says.
“And with the calvarium, in general, some people will actually try to change the presentation so that it’s not vertex [head-first],” she continues. “So if you do it starting from the breech [feet-first] presentation, there’s dilation that happens as the case goes on, and often, the last step, you can evacuate an intact calvarium at the end.”
The video also reveals Dr. Nucatola is aware the practice of selling mutilated dead baby parts effectively violates a federal law which prohibits the sale of fetal tissue procured from partial birth abortions.
David Daleiden, the head of the non-profit Center for Medical Progress, says he’s floored by the admissions of criminal wrongdoing his team captured:
“Planned Parenthood’s criminal conspiracy to make money off of aborted baby parts reaches to the very highest levels of their organization,” Daleiden said, according to LifeNews.com. “Elected officials must listen to the public outcry for Planned Parenthood to be held accountable to the law and for our tax dollars to stop underwriting this barbaric abortion business.”
Following the release of the organization’s damning exposé, several pro-life groups demanded Congress immediately launch an investigation into the practices Dr. Nucatola discusses in the video.
After admitting to criminal wrongdoing on film, Dr. Nucatola deleted her Twitter account within 1.5 hours of the video’s release.
