The Center for Medical Progress, the anti-abortion group that has released recordings of Planned Parenthood officials discussing the harvesting and selling of organs of aborted babies, has released a fifth video that deals with using 'intact fetuses' and the organization's 'diversification of the revenue stream,' The Hill reports.

The video is "repulsive and unconscionable," said Texas Gov. Greg Abbott after the fifth video from the Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast clinic in Texas was released.

AP reports that footage shows people touring the clinic as they pretended to be from a company that procures fetal tissue for research.

Not only were the individuals shown recently collected fetuses, but the video also shows a Planned Parenthood official, Melissa Farrell, director of research for Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast, discussing intact fetuses.

"Just depending on the patient's anatomy, how many weeks, where it's placed in the uterus ... we're going to potentially be able to have some that will be more or less intact, and then some that will not be," she tells an interviewer. "But it's something that we can look at exploring how we can make that happen so we have a higher chance."




Planned Parenthood has previously stated that rather than selling the body parts and organs for profit, Planned Parenthood will "donate" human remains to for-profit and non-profit entities.

However, the latest video shows a Planned Parenthood official stating, "we've had studies in which the company, or in the case of the investigator, has a specific need for a certain portion of the products of conception and we bake that into our contract, and our protocol, that we follow this. So we deviate from our standard in order to do that.

"If we alter our process and we are able to obtain intact fetal cadavers, then we can make it part of the budget, that any dissections are this, and splitting the specimens into different shipments is this. I mean, it's all just a matter of line items," she adds later.

The Center warned viewers earlier in the day of the potential release: 

"You're going to see evidence in it of how Planned Parenthood is willing to sell fully in-tact fetuses to buyers of aborted fetal tissue," said David Daleiden of The Center of Medical Progress on CNN. "Perhaps it's going to be even more shocking."

The first four videos that were released by the anti-abortion group has caused an uproar amongst conservatives and has ultimately led to a fight to defund Planned Parenthood.

According to The Hill, despite court orders blocking the release of some of the videos, Daleiden's group is planning to release other videos that are not affected by the court ruling.

On Monday afternoon, a standalone Republican-led bill to defund Planned Parenthood failed to defeat a Democratic filibuster, securing 53 votes in favor and 46 against.

While Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has promised no government shut downs on his watch, presidential candidate Donald Trump says the "only way to get rid of Planned Parenthood money is to shut the government down."

As the defunding debate continues, the Center of Medical Progress says that several more videos are expected to be released, The Hill reports.
