Dispatch From The Atrocity Exhibition: #PPFA – ‘Everything We Provide Is Fresh’ [UPDATED]
The Center For Medical Progress has released it’s tenth video exposing the atrocities being committed by Planned Parenthood and their allies in the trade of aborted baby parts.
From the CMP’s press release [emphasis theirs]:
“We’ve just been working with people who want particular tissues, like, you know, they want cardiac, or they want eyes, or they want neural,” says Dr. Westhoff to a prospective fetal organ buyer. “Certainly, everything we provide–oh, gonads! Oh my God, gonads. Everything we provide is fresh.” Westhoff continues, “Obviously, we would have the potential for a huge P.R. issue in doing this,” before offering to introduce the buyers to “national office abortion people” from Planned Parenthood.
Deborah VanDerhei is the National Director for CAPS, an influential committee within Planned Parenthood that drives abortion policy across the organization. VanDerhei refers to payments for fetal tissue as “donation for remuneration,” which carries the connotation of financial reward or benefit without regard for actual expenses. VanDerhei explains, “I have been talking to the executive director of the National Abortion Federation, we’re trying to figure this out as an industry, about how we’re going to manage remuneration, because the headlines would be a disaster.”
“Is this really worth getting–I don’t even know what in general, what a specimen generally brings in?” VanDerhei later asks a prospective buyer. When she is told $100 per specimen, she remarks, “But we have independent colleagues who generate a fair amount of income doing this.” VanDerhei suggests that Planned Parenthood goes to great lengths to avoid leaving a paper trail about their fetal tissue activity: “It’s an issue that you might imagine we’re not really that comfortable talking about on email.”
In a conversation recorded between VanDerhei and Vanessa Russo, Compliance Program Administrator for Planned Parenthood Keystone in Pennsylvania, Russo argues, “A company like this that wants to give our organization money for the tissue–I think that that’s a valid exchange, and that that’s okay.” VanDerhei nods her head up and down and affirms, “Mhm.”
The sale or purchase of human fetal tissue is a federal felony punishable by up to 10 years in prison or a fine of up to $500,000 (42 U.S.C. 289g-2).
Vanessa Cullins, the Vice President of External Medical Affairs, seems fully aware of the criminal exposure that fetal body parts sales present to Planned Parenthood: “This is important. This could destroy your organization and us, if we don’t time those conversations correctly,” she tells a prospective buyer.
As Darleen Click remarks:
This is even more damning than many of the videos that have come before because what we are seeing is the wink wink nudge nudge of how the Abortion Industry goes about plausible deniability. They deliberately will not have anything written and they will be discreet about conversations.
What is there left to say?…perhaps: Shame On Us.
UPDATE at 1953…
Over in the Comments section of Darleen’s post, Trespassers W is dead solid perfect:
Lovecraft and his sort made us think that Evil is accompanied by pentagrams, midnight black masses, eldritch incantations, and plots to usher in Armageddon.
The sight of ghouls and vampires with Botoxed faces and designer pantsuits doesn’t fit our mental models. That doesn’t make it any less evil; it is arguably far worse.
Evil is most effective when it hides behind a facade that appears Normal.
These people look like fairly average people on the outside, but inside them is rank, foul-smelling Death.
