“We Can See How Much We Can Get Out of It,” says Planned Parenthood Affiliate VP; Whistleblower Who Harvested Aborted Baby Parts Details Traumatic Job in Planned Parenthood Clinics in New Documentary Web Series

LOS ANGELES, July 28–The first episode in a new documentary web series features a woman who once worked in Planned Parenthood clinics describing the profit motive involved in Planned Parenthood’s sale of aborted fetal body parts, and includes new admissions from top-level Planned Parenthood leadership about the illicit pricing structure.

The “Human Capital” documentary web series is produced by The Center for Medical Progress and integrates expert interviews, eyewitness accounts, and real-life undercover interactions to tell the story of Planned Parenthood’s commercial exploitation of aborted fetal tissue. Episode 1, “Planned Parenthood’s Black Market in Baby Parts,” launches today at:

Episode 1 introduces Holly O’Donnell, a licensed phlebotomist who unsuspectingly took a job as a “procurement technician” at the fetal tissue company and biotech start-up StemExpress in late 2012. “I thought I was going to be just drawing blood, not procuring tissue from aborted fetuses,” says O’Donnell, who fainted in shock on her first day of work in a Planned Parenthood clinic when suddenly asked to dissect a freshly-aborted fetus during her on-the-job training.

For 6 months, O’Donnell’s job was to identify pregnant women at Planned Parenthood who met criteria for fetal tissue orders and to harvest the fetal body parts after their abortions. O’Donnell describes the financial benefit Planned Parenthood received from StemExpress: “For whatever we could procure, they would get a certain percentage. The main nurse was always trying to make sure we got our specimens. No one else really cared, but the main nurse did because she knew that Planned Parenthood was getting compensated.”

Episode 1 also shows undercover video featuring the Vice President and Medical Director of Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountains (PPRM) in Denver, CO, Dr. Savita Ginde. PPRM is one of the largest and wealthiest Planned Parenthood affiliates and operates clinics in Colorado, New Mexico, Wyoming, and Nevada. Standing in the Planned Parenthood abortion clinic pathology laboratory, where fetuses are brought after abortions, Ginde concludes that payment per organ removed from a fetus will be the most beneficial to Planned Parenthood: “I think a per-item thing works a little better, just because we can see how much we can get out of it.”

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).

Dr. Katherine Sheehan, Medical Director emerita of Planned Parenthood of the Pacific Southwest in San Diego, describes her affiliate’s long-time relationship with Advanced Bioscience Resources, a middleman company that has been providing aborted fetal organs since 1989: “We’ve been using them for over 10 years, really a long time, you know, just kind of renegotiated the contract. They’re doing the big government-level collections and things like that.”

“Planned Parenthood’s sale of aborted baby parts is an offensive and horrifying reality that is widespread enough for many people to be available to give first-person testimony about it,” notes David Daleiden, Project Lead for The Center for Medical Progress. “CMP’s investigative journalism work will continue to surface more compelling eyewitness accounts and primary source evidence of Planned Parenthood’s trafficking and selling baby parts for profit. There should be an immediate moratorium on Planned Parenthood’s taxpayer funding while Congress and the states determine the full extent of the organization’s lawbreaking.”

    Is there any denying that abortion is wrong? Why would the selling of the
    body parts be worse than killing the child in the first place?

    Not a lot really gets to me but seeing that hand with the fingers I was
    just like wow I cant believe what I’m looking at. I don’t even know what to
    say about it except for its pure evil. If you’re not religious that’s fine
    but anyone with a sense of morals and compassion has to stand up against

  3. Matthew Deslandes says:

    Please fact check this piece of propaganda from this anti-abortion group.
    There’s nothing suspect about this, which has occurred for years to help
    with stem cell research. PP doesn’t make any money and there is no black
    market, but the vid is carefully edited to make people believe so.

    Right now we have the Liberal crazies rioting at the home of a man who shot

    Thats pretty horrific to say the least

  9. Nubxei the Insatiate (勝者) says:

    The woman in question was looking for a job collecting blood and instead
    she ignorantly signs up for a stem cell research facility. It’s not legal
    but it ABSOLUTELY is not a “black market”. It’s called medical research and
    sure, stem cells are a hotly-debated topic however this is nothing but a
    plethora of misinformation with smidgens of bullshit sprinkled atop.

    More heavily edited FAKE scare tactics by ultra conservatives! Get a clue
    people, when FoxLies is the only “news” reporting on a certain subject,
    it’s because it’s FAKE news! Real journalists don’t give edited to hell
    videos anytime because real journalists don’t report on FAKE news!

    Good ole conservative propaganda.

  12. Jam Bo says:

    A few stories have been bugging the hell out of me lately. It finally
    occurred to me today why.

    The Planned Parenthood Clinic of Butchery. No need to comment further.

    The second incident was the Kate Steinle murder in San Francisco and the
    radio silence put on the crime by many in the media and White House. Obama
    still hasn’t commented on it, even though his spokeshole has been asked
    about it numerous times.

    The third one was the whole incident with the ex-governor of Maryland
    Martin O’Malley (I think that’s his first name). He made a comment about
    “all lives mattering” to a Black Lives Matter group, and he was shouted
    down so badly that he has had to go on a mini-apology tour apologizing for
    a comment everyone in the world would normally agree with — he’s heading
    to South Carolina now, apparently because after the Church Shooting, South
    Carolina determined it could dispense racial indulgences to insensitive
    white comments directed at blacks.

    What’s the connection? Well, in each of the three incidents clear-cut
    liberals have a problem with valuing ALL of life — in other words, some
    lives are more valuable than others, some don’t mean a damn, while other
    racial ones take precedence over all others!! It’s a disgusting moral
    inversion. In each, one particular life or lives isn’t accorded the full
    dignity of being human — fully deserving of respect and protection.

    Liberals and Progressives have a HUGE life problem. Maybe they need to be
    asked a bit more straight forwardly what’s up with that?

  13. Daniel Tidwell says:

    The law at the top of the video is abridged to a point that is wholly

    The full law reads:

    “It shall be unlawful for any person to knowingly acquire, receive, or
    otherwise transfer any human fetal tissue for valuable consideration if the
    transfer affects interstate commerce.”

    As long as the tissue doesn’t cross state lines there is no crime here.

    Furthermore “valuable consideration” does not include reasonable payments
    associated with the transportation, implantation, processing, preservation,
    quality control, or storage of human fetal tissue.

    I know this isn’t going to change anyone’s opinion, but I don’t like it
    when people twist the wording of the law to make it appear that legal
    wrongdoing exists, when the truth is that only certain moral convictions
    have been assaulted.

  14. Nikola Bijeliti says:

    No one ever claims Black children are “too Black” and have to be chased
    down with “Diversity.”
    No one ever claims Asian children are “too Asian” and have to be chased
    down with “Diversity.”
    But anti-Whites tell us that White children and ONLY White children are
    “too White” and must be chased down with “Diversity.”
    Diversity means chasing down the last White child.
    Diversity is a codeword for White Genocide.
    Anti-racist is a codeword for anti-White.

  15. Tom B (Iconyms) says:

    I don’t really see anything wrong with this. Congress has approved the use
    of fetal tissue in research and it’s helped advance medicine to help
    prevent things like miscarriages. Just like donating your organs on your
    driver’s license this is something the women having the abortions opt into
    in the hope and expectation that some good can come of it. The costs are
    their to cover the expense of the doctors involved which is perfectly

  16. Igor Bartak says:

    Too many people in western world are mental followers of Lenin and Hitler
    who were the first “democrats” who legalized this praxis. Really sad.

  17. Josh Perez says:

    What a sick country we live in……. So sad. To think big business in
    chopping up babies and selling their parts for big money…

  18. Dyna Hone says:

    Check out 7.28 – where the vid shows the name of the company “Shasta-Diablo
    Administration” … “diablo” is Spanish for “devil”

  19. Andres Jimenez says:

    I’m a pro-lifer, I only care when the fetus is inside the vagina but when
    it comes out and turns out that he/she is a homosexual, black or
    liberal…yes..let’s kill them.
