The Center for Medical Progress (CMP) has released another video featuring Holly O’Donnell, the former StemExpress employee turned whistleblower. O’Donnell has spoken out multiple times about her experiences with Planned Parenthood and StemExpress, and is continuing to expose the gruesome operation in this latest video.
In this video, the fifth in a series from CMP spotlighting O’Donnell’s experience with StemExpress, O’Donnell explains that she witnessed her coworkers taking the body parts of aborted babies without receiving consent from the baby’s mother first. “If there was, like, a high-gestated fetus, I have witnessed there was no consent signed, and these women didn’t know that it was getting taken,” she explained.
“It’s stealing; it’s stealing baby parts,” she said.
O’Donnell is a phlebotomist and former fetal procurement technician, who previously worked inside Planned Parenthood facilities, drawing blood and dissecting fetal organs, which were then sold.
“Planned Parenthood and their business partners like StemExpress preyed on pregnant women to harvest and sell aborted baby body parts in an illegal profit-driven scheme,” CMP’s David Daleiden said of this latest video. “Public officials should shut down Planned Parenthood’s barbaric abortion empire so Planned Parenthood can never defraud the public, hurt patients or sell aborted baby hearts, lungs, livers and brains again.”
In other CMP news, co-investigator Sandra Merritt has asked the court to dismiss all charges against her, relating to her undercover investigation of Planned Parenthood. Merritt, along with Daleiden, is facing 15 charges, all a gross violation of their First Amendment rights. The methods used for CMP’s undercover investigations are the same as those used by countless journalists over the years.
Mat Staver, a pro-life attorney representing Merritt, spoke about the court battle to Life News. “Planned Parenthood has offered virtually no evidence to substantiate any of its claims. Even though California law clearly requires more evidence, the trial court refused to dismiss Planned Parenthood’s lawsuit and allowed it to proceed on the basis of mere allegations,” he said. “This deprived Merritt of the essential protections of California law.”
“Unsurprisingly, Planned Parenthood’s baseless and vindictive lawsuit ignores the law, so we asked the Ninth Circuit to throw it out and uphold Sandra’s right to tell the truth,” said Staver.
