According to a former StemExpress employee, Planned Parenthood harvests intact organs, in this case a brain from a late-term male, even when the heart was still beating. In the third episode of “Human Capital,” a documentary web series produced by The Center for Medical Progress to shed light on the lucrative business of harvesting baby body parts, former StemExpress procurement technician Holly O’Donnell tells a gruesome tale from the Planned Parenthood Mar Monte’s Alameda clinic in San Jose, California.
“Want to see something kind of cool?” O’Donnell says her supervisor asked her. “And she just taps the heart, and it starts beating. And I’m sitting here and I’m looking at this fetus, and its heart is beating, and I don’t know what to think… I don’t know if that constitutes it’s technically dead, or it’s alive.”
StemExpress, a biotech start-up that partnered with Planned Parenthood affiliates to purchase their aborted baby body parts and resell them for scientific experimentation, announced last week that it was ending its “business” relationship with the largest abortion-provider in the United States. The company ran to a Los Angeles Superior Court in late July following the release of the CMP undercover videos, which issued a temporary restraining order blocking the release of further footage containing officials, StemExpress themselves.
However, as a former employee, O’Donnell told CMP how her StemExpress supervisor instructed her to cut through the face of the fetus in order to get to the developed, rather expensive brain.
“She gave me the scissors and told me that I had to cut down the middle of the face,” O’Donnell said. “I can’t even describe what that feels like.”
The latest video introduces Dr. Ben Van Handel, the Executive Director of Novogenix Laboratories LLC, for the first time in the series. Handel, who is also the Procurement Manager of Advanced Bioscience Resources Inc., callously admits “there are times when after the procedure is done that the heart actually is still beating” and when “the fetus was already in the vaginal canal whenever we put her in the stirrups. It just fell out.”
Novogenix is the company that has harvested fetal organs from abortions done by Planned Parenthood Federation of America’s Senior Director of Medical Services Dr. Deborah Nucatola, the star of the first video released by CMP. Nucatola is seen describing how Planned Parenthood sells the body parts of aborted fetuses, as well as admitting how she illegally alters procedure and uses partial-birth abortions to supply intact body parts.
“Today’s video contains heartrending admissions about the absolute barbarism of Planned Parenthood’s abortion practice and baby parts sales in which fetuses are sometimes delivered intact and alive,” CMP’s Project Lead David Daleiden said in a statement. “Planned Parenthood is a criminal organization from the top down and should be immediately stripped of taxpayer funding and prosecuted for their atrocities against humanity.”
