When the temporary restraining order against StemExpress was lifted last Friday, Center for Medical Progress wasted no time issuing a press release and preview video of what the fetal parts buyers were trying to hide. The full video was promised as forthcoming, but preview quotations CMP released promised trouble for Planned Parenthood.
Cate Dyer, the head of StemExpress, indicates that some abortion mills are unsanitary, bacteria-filled wastelands.
CMP’s release of key quotations includes this disturbing exchange between Dyer and the buyer:
SE: We’ll do testing on our side, so we’ll be able to see, you know. And sometimes we’ll find that it can be clinic-specific. I’ve seen really rampant, rampant problems with bacteria in certain clinics. [laughter] Some where you’re kind of in question of should they really, you know, [laughing]Buyer: Right.SE: I’ve seen staph come out of clinics.
SE: So, I mean, I’ve seen all sorts of things come out of clinics, so.
The cavalier tone which Dyer uses to discuss the state of multiple abortion facilities indicates how the quest for profit has caused the industry to turn a blind eye to the safety of women. The abortion industry tries to sell itself as caring for women, but one of its trusted partners reveals that fetal parts are often contaminated. This, in turn, means women are at serious health risk in those situations. Planned Parenthood insists that women trust them, and this revelation shows women the dangers inside these shoddy abortion mills.
Dyer even reveals her good relationship with Planned Parenthood, as another preview quotation reveals:
Buyer: Do you feel that support from Cecile [Richards] and from Deborah [Nucatola]?
SE: Yea, oh yea. You know, everyone at PPFA. I just think that you’re in the cause or you’re not. If you’re not in the cause, they don’t need you around. They need champions and if you’re not a champion, then you should go. That’s just- I don’t know, the clinics are very guarded, as they should be. Who do they let in their house, they let champions in their house. Right? I think it’s that same concept and ABR has just never understood that.
Apparently being a Planned Parenthood “champion “means being in on risking women’s lives and health to gain body parts to sell.
Unsanitary conditions in Planned Parenthood facilities are hardly surprising. The abortion giant has a history of that, as well. Just last year the Bedford Heights Planned Parenthood clinic in Ohio was fined $25,000 for unsanitary conditions, which included failure to:
… clean and disinfect surgical equipment, properly store “frozen [human] tissue,” dispose urine samples (many of which were found sitting around unlabeled throughout the clinic), and dispose single-use medical equipment and expired medical supplies, as well as improperly training staff in maintenance of medical and testing equipment.
The year before it was Planned Parenthood of Delaware, where ex-Planned Parenthood nurses testified about the clinic using “instruments on patients that were not sterile.” They also added that they were rushed “to get patients in and out [and] left operating tables soiled and unclean” and one nurse said, “It’s not washed down, it’s not even cleaned off. It has bloody drainage on it.” Another agreed, “They could be at risk of getting hepatitis, even AIDS.”
Finding unsanitary conditions within the abortion industry is not unusual, but with Dyer’s revelation— and more to come— it’s clear that it’s common to StemExpress. And as a trusted “champion” and confidant, StemExpress was in one of the best positions to know what really happens in the abortion facilities.
The “safe and legal” abortions Planned Parenthood promises is sounding more and more like a dangerous, unsanitary receptacle of death and illegal profiteering. As the abortion giant says, women do trust Planned Parenthood. It’s clear, however, they should not, if they want to keep their reproductive health.
