The Center for Medical Progress went undercover at a Planned Parenthood facility to gather some damning evidence of the callous disregard for human life held by physicians and staff at that organization. No wonder emotions run so high.
Dr. DeShawn Taylor was a longtime abortion provider at Planned Parenthood Los Angeles and was previously a medical director at Planned Parenthood of Arizona. Taylor is introduced to the CMP undercover journalists in the video by Dr. Deborah Nucatola, the Planned Parenthood chief medical officer who was heard in the now famous initial CMP video in which she was allegedly heard discussing the sale of aborted baby body parts while eating a salad and drinking wine at lunch.
Physicians or anyone else for that matter, selling parts of aborted babies as though they were auto parts salvaged from a junk yard is about as dehumanizing as one can get. Listening to someone describing this transaction as though it's the same as any other business deal should make your skin crawl.
Here's what is revealed in a recent CMP video.
During a reception at a Planned Parenthood conference, Taylor describes to CMP’s undercover journalists–posing as buyers from a biomedical company–how she delivers intact fetuses during late-term abortions. In the video, a CMP journalist indicates that intact bodies will allow for the harvesting of organs and body parts that are more valuable for scientific research.
At one point in the footage, the abortionist explains the difficulties abortionists encounter when a baby comes through the procedure with signs of life: “In Arizona, if the fetus comes out with any signs of life, we’re supposed to transport it. To the hospital.”
When asked if there is “any standard procedure for verifying signs of life?” Taylor responds by saying, “The key is, you need to pay attention to who’s in the room, right?”
Taylor chuckles and says, “It’s a mess. It’s a mess.”
This is a blatant disregard for the law, human life, and who knows what all else. Are these abortionists devoid of humanity?
CMP project lead David Daleiden released the following statement about this investigation:
This footage shows a longtime Planned Parenthood abortion doctor willing to sell baby parts for profit, use criminal abortion methods to get more intact body parts, and even cover up infanticide. This doctor was trained by Planned Parenthood’s senior director of medical services, and encouraged by her to participate in the fetal body parts market. This footage is just a preview of the damning and incriminating admissions of Planned Parenthood leaders on our further unreleased tapes, being censored by an unconstitutional gag order from a federal judge in San Francisco.
Daleiden sums the matter up very well.
“The only difference between Planned Parenthood’s barbaric abortion business, and that of the notorious Dr. Kermit Gosnell, is that Gosnell was not so careful as to ‘pay attention to who’s in the room,’” Daleiden says. “Elected officials must stop forcing taxpayers to subsidize Planned Parenthood’s criminal abortion business, and the Department of Justice must immediately open a full investigation and prosecute Planned Parenthood to the fullest extent of the law.”
Absolutely. And there is not a moment to waste.
