Planned Parenthood Selling Aborted Fetus Body Parts?

By    |   Tuesday, 14 Jul 2015 10:50 AM

Planned Parenthood's top doctor, Deborah Nucatola, is reportedly seen in an undercover video discussing how local abortion clinics go about selling hearts, lungs, livers, and other body parts of aborted fetuses — an act potentially punishable by federal law.

"So yesterday was a clinic day. So, for example, what did you procure?" asked an activist posing as a body parts buyer at a lunch meeting with Nucatola, Senior Director of Medical Services

"You know, I asked her at the beginning of the day what she wanted…a lot of people want intact hearts these days, because they're looking for specific nodes…good for them. Yesterday was the first time she said people wanted lungs," Nucatola replied.

The activists, aligned with The Center for Medical Progress, asked Nucatola how much money each body part would cost.

"I would say it's anywhere from $30 to $100 [per specimen], depending on the facility and what's involved," said Nucatola.

The activists then wondered aloud why they have to contract with each local Planned Parenthood clinic to buy the specimens. They asked if they could just partner with the national organization, and in turn buy the fetuses in bulk from clinics all over the country.

"Rather than having to deal with all the [local] affiliates, if there were a way to partner with PPFA [Planned Parenthood Federation of America] directly to get some sort of pre-clearance or something…" the undercover activists suggested.

"So we tried to do this," said Nucatola, "and at the national office, we have a litigation and law department which just really doesn’t want us to be the middle people for this issue right now. But I will tell you that behind closed doors these conversations are happening with the affiliates."

The Center for Medical Progress pointed out that the sale or purchase of human fetal tissue is a federal felony punishable by up to 10 years in prison.

The center also wrote that the Planned Parenthood's national organization and local affiliate clinics are kept separate so that if an individual clinic comes under litigation, any resulting damage doesn't affect other clinics.
