The following comes from an August 19 LifeNews article by Steven Ertelt:
The organization that has released six videos exposing the scandal of Planned Parenthood selling aborted babies and their body parts has released a new undercover video today with another shocking discovery. This latest video catches the nation’s biggest abortion business harvesting the brain of an aborted baby who was still alive.
The video features Holly O’Donnell, a licensed phlebotomist who unsuspectingly took a job as a “procurement technician” at the fetal tissue company and biotech start-up StemExpress in late 2012. That’s the company that acts as a middleman and purchases the body parts of aborted babies from Planned Parenthood to sell to research universities and other places. StemExpress was partnered with Planned Parenthood up until last week, when it quietly announced it ended its relationship with the abortion corporation.
The new video includes O’Donnell’s eyewitness narrative of the daily practice of fetal body parts harvesting in Planned Parenthood abortion clinics. She tells the harrowing story of harvesting an intact brain from a late-term male unborn baby whose heart was still beating after the abortion.
O’Donnell says her supervisor asked her [if] “I want to see something kind of cool […] And she just taps the heart, and it starts beating. And I’m sitting here and I’m looking at this fetus, and its heart is beating, and I don’t know what to think.”
The San Jose Planned Parenthood does abortions up to 20 weeks of pregnancy. Referring to the beating heart of the aborted fetus, O’Donnell remarks, “I don’t know if that constitutes it’s technically dead, or it’s alive.”
The Center for Medical Progress alleges that Planned Parenthood is likely breaking federal laws requiring that appropriate medical care and treatment be given to babies who survive abortions. State and federal law require that the same treatment be given to an infant born-alive after an abortion as to a normally delivered baby (1 U.S.C. 8, CA Health and Safety Code 123435). California law also prohibits any kind of experimentation on a fetus with a discernible heartbeat (CA Health and Safety Code 123440).
The group also indicates StemExpress has been cited in published scientific literature as a source of fetal hearts used for Langendorff perfusion, which keeps a heart beating after it is excised from the body.
O’Donnell also tells how her StemExpress supervisor instructed her to cut through the face of the fetus in order to get the brain.
“I can’t even describe what that feels like,” she says.
The video also features recordings of Dr. Ben Van Handel, the Executive Director of Novogenix Laboratories, LLC, and also of Perrin Larton, Procurement Manager of Advanced Bioscience Resources, Inc. (ABR). Novogenix is the company that has harvested fetal organs from abortions done by Planned Parenthood Federation of America’s Senior Director of Medical Services, Dr. Deborah Nucatola, in Los Angeles, while ABR is the oldest fetal tissue procurement company and works with Planned Parenthood in San Diego and other clinics around the country.
Van Handel admits, “There are times when after the procedure is done that the heart actually is still beating,” and Larton describes abortions she has seen where “the fetus was already in the vaginal canal whenever we put her in the stirrups, it just fell out.”
The only evil now is that American citizens have no outrage against such barbarity. Senator Barbara Boxer — and many others — still scream that even showing this videos, or even discussing PP “is an insult to women”; that sort of thing.
Well, where are women screaming back, saying, “No, you are committing murder”? And, where is their church? Too many Catholic clergy have said little or nothing, or temporized the message by equating it along with all other evils, like poverty and immigration abuses. No different, really, than the many, many Germans and Austrians and French and others that simply looked the other way (or helped) as Jews were rounded up and put into box cars.
It’s unspeakably sick. Will people have had enough ? They should by now. It leads me to question what atrocities it will take to rally our citizens to demand this kind of thing to be stopped. This seems like the epitome of evil to me.
Im disgusted. Reading more of this made me want to throw up. How could anyone just be there and watch it happend. Why didnt she smack them. Poor baby. Its no wonder there is a spiritual war happening in those places. Its satanic or worst because as i remember some saints describe well and explain the spiritual outcome. If i find their quotes ill post.
Yes, Abeca, please do.
Abeca says, “Why didn’t she smack them.” Hmm. Abeca and the rest should think this through.
If she smacks them, that would be considered violence for which she could be arrested for physical assault. Then the arrest hits the media, and the focus becomes these horrible pro-life people who are violent and who are bent on entrapment of pro-choice advocates using hidden cams.
And so if she had “smacked them” the public outrage would not be the disgusting harvesting of organs from fetuses, but the focus would be on this violent video-maker.
Praise to the videomaker for doing the video and for not “smacking” Holly O’Donnell, thereby placing the public focus squarely on Planned Parenthood.
That’s fine jon. I was speaking about what reaction i might have. Its so shocking and demonic, i might just react like any mother would and go on defense mode. I only used smack as an example. This is so scandulous that it would be hard for me to not react in order to protect this baby. But if you go by Your interpretation. Well then glad they caught this and for good reason, this person has good discipline enough to not react in a protective mode. I dont know what to call it? Brave? Who knows but regardless this affects us all. These innocent babies need us to learn from these facts on the evils of murder mills and we need to unite to defend these innocent children.
At our current rate of national moral decay, these videos will probably garner no more than a “ho-hum” twenty years from now. We are rapidly becoming similar to Ancient Rome.
Utterly barbaric, gut wrenching, and sickening! There is a special hot seat in hell for anyone who could take part in such an atrocity!! God help them!
I agree with RR!! A special hot seat in hell– YES!! And I would LOVE to hear our Holy Father say just those words, exactly, to all the world! Has the Devil got your tongue, Pope Francis?? Let’s hear it!!
It is not explained in this article that in order to extract the intact brain the surgery had to be approached by cutting through the face of this living baby.
That must hurt a lot, I think.
I am still totally HORRIFIED by this video! This is similar to the atrocities committed against the Jews, in Nazi Germany! Now– Pope Francis, and Pope (emeritis) Benedict— would you PLEASE STAND UP, VEHEMENTLY THREATEN, SCOLD, AND PUNISH ALL THE “CATHOLIC” MONSTERS WHO PROMOTE AND PARTICIPATE IN ABORTIONIS– AND EXCOMMUNICTE THEM?? Tell them all– “There is a FLAMING HOT SEAT in Hell, just waiting for all of you!” And likewise– a FLAMING HOT SEAT IN HELL, is waiting for each lazy, uncommitted Pope, prelate, priest, and nun!! All SELFISH SEXUAL SINS, and the MURDER of ABORTION– has GOT TO STOP, in this world!!
I understand reading in another article from Newsmax today, that the abortionist cut through the face of the poor sweet little baby while it’s heart was beating to extract the poor little soul’s brain. How dead their souls must be, just walking zombies. To think that these devils get away with this, and our politicians like Obama, Clinton, Pelosi, and nearly all of the demoncrats support it. Obama was the only politician who voted in the Illinois state legislature to kill the surviving aborted babies. No wonder these devils can get away with it legally, but not really, I wouldn’t want to be in their shoes on their judgement day, they will pay for their crimes, for eternity! No doubt even the worst of the Nazi war criminal medical…
There are nationwide protests against PP this Saturday, including many in California. It’s easy enough to find them on the internet. Get out there this weekend!
Each and every bishop in the United States could encourage each and every parish pastor in their diocese to try to maintain ongoing 1 hour Sunday rosary vigils outside of Planned Parenthood killing centers. This Catholic duty is a spiritual work of Mercy. Imagine if busloads of Catholics, around the United States, left after Sunday Mass to pray while also drawing the necessary attention to stop this diabolical scourge.
The story above, cries out to heaven for God’s Supreme Justice! Magnify this one story by millions and you will realize just how unbelievably merciful God has been to a nation that has been complicit with this evil. Did that one tiny baby boy with the beating heart need our help? God is watching how His shepherds…
Catherine—You are right…..The silence is DEAFENING….
