We now have a tenth video from the undercover journalism of the Center for Medical Progress. (Go here if you need a reminder about the previous nine video and their high points, or low points.)
Live Action News reports: “Planned Parenthood admits baby parts sales can make ‘a fair amount of income’”
Shocking video footage released today shows top Planned Parenthood executives discussing the sales of baby body parts, saying that it is a “valid exchange”, and that clinics can make “a fair amount of income” doing it.
If they are making a “fair amount of income” then the payments they receive are obviously for more than the cost of getting and mailing the “intact organs.” Being compensated for the time and labor should be a net neutral exchange as far as the business’ income is concerned. These people are organ harvesting and organ trafficking. There is no way to escape that conclusion.
The video features multiple Planned Parenthood executives: Dr. Carolyn Westhoff, Senior Medical Advisor; Dr. Vanessa Cullins, Vice President for External Medical Affairs; and Deborah VanDerhei, National Director for the Consortium of Abortion Providers (CAPS).
Westhoff bemoans the possible P.R. nightmare that would be unleashed if the public were to find out about their illegal activities, while VanDerhei discusses payments for the body parts as “donation for remuneration.”
VanDerhei also is told that they can receive around $100 for each “specimen,” and remarks that people can make “a fair amount of income” through this. Vanessa Russo, Compliance Program Administrator for Planned Parenthood Keystone in Pennsylvania, is also featured, calling the selling of aborted babies’ body parts a “valid exchange,” despite the fact that purchases of human fetal tissue is a felony. And Cullins talks about the need to keep their illegal activity quiet, saying that it could “destroy” the organization.
But do the media care? Of course not. Mollie Hemmingway, the senior editor at The Federalist blog tweeted about the Washington Post:
As of 8:02p, WashPo still hasn’t put up story on explosive 10th video, but published today a puffy puffy PR piece on how awesome @ppact is.

That pretty much sums up how all the media have been treating this story.
