Planned Parenthood: We sell ‘fresh’ baby parts, including eyes, spinal cords and ‘gonads’

The tenth undercover video from the Center for Medical Progress reveals private discussions of Planned Parenthood workers who negotiate how to sell body parts and avoid direct accusation of selling body parts.

Their business talk is a chilling reminder that there is no humanity in what they do, only cash. Their business is body parts, not babies. The video makes it clear that the only use for a baby is the parts she or he provides. And the fresher the better.


This video introduces still more Planned Parenthood executives but the refrain is from the same song, even if the tune is more callously sung. It is another of the  “Human Capital” documentary web series.

The video highlights conversations with Dr. Carolyn Westhoff, Senior Medical Advisor for PPFA; Dr. Vanessa Cullins, Vice President for External Medical Affairs for PPFA; and Deborah VanDerhei, National Director for the Consortium of Abortion Providers (CAPS) at PPFA.


In this video, Dr. Westhoff is discussing the business of babies with a potential buyer, saying:

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. People want spinal cords, so I mean, that sort of thing,” Certainly, everything we provide–oh, gonads! Oh my God, gonads. Everything we provide is fresh.

The connotations of her comment are disturbing. Fresh baby parts are a familiar idea in these videos since multiple videos have discussed babies born alive and hauled off from the clinics on dry ice to the labs. Fresh baby body parts are sold to the highest fetal tissue bidder so some scientist can cut it up and use his or her federal grant money to support a research agenda.

The word horror is not strong enough to describe what Planned Parenthood engages in on a daily basis with a seared conscience about it all. Even in the most private conversations revealed thus far, there isn’t a hint of remorse that babies must die for their work to be done. A horror movie might have a plot featuring a chain of offices that simply cut women up for parts, making them think they were doing good for science, but then selling the parts of medical experiments. The problem is that this isn’t a plot of a fictional tale but a reality happening at this moment in America.

This horror tale happens, of course, because those “poor women” Planned Parenthood says it cares so much about, those who can’t afford medical care, went to Planned Parenthood for help. They are back trying to make ends meet, while their babies’ gonads are in a university lab where a scientist’s six-figure salary is supplemented by the federal government. The business of babies is alive and well in many abortion facilities in the nation, this video reveals. But for this business to be alive and well, babies have to be dead.

This 10th video is a disturbing narrative of, as CMP has titled its series, “Human Capital.” The products are baby parts. The prices are per part. The tentacles are from sea to shining sea. And sometimes, if you look closely enough, you can see the ripples of blood in the water.
