Following the group’s first video revealing a top Planned Parenthood official discussing the sale of aborted fetal body parts, Center for Medical Progress founder David Daleiden tells CBS that “up to a dozen additional videos of top officials from Planned Parenthood across the country talking about the sales… will be released in the days to come.”
Planned Parenthood has responded to the controversy by claiming that when Dr. Deborah Nucatola referred in the video to fees of “probably anywhere from $30 to $100, depending on the facility and what’s involved,” she meant only fees to cover costs, such as transportation and storage.
But Daleiden maintains to CBS that “Planned Parenthood is still receiving $50, $75, sometimes $100 per specimen per fetal part. So all of that is just straight up profit that goes to their bottom line.”
In a video addressing the situation, Planned Parenthood CEO Cecile Richards suggested Nucatola’s “tone” was an isolated mistake that “does not reflect that compassion” the organization holds.
Future videos may call that assurance into question and shed further light on the financial questions involved, which Live Action News will continue to cover.
