The following comes from a July 14 release and video sent by the Center for Medical Progress.
LOS ANGELES, July 14—New undercover footage shows Planned Parenthood Federation of America’s Senior Director of Medical Services, Dr. Deborah Nucatola, describing how Planned Parenthood sells the body parts of aborted fetuses, and admitting she uses partial-birth abortions to supply intact body parts.
In the video, Nucatola is at a business lunch with actors posing as buyers from a human biologics company. As head of PPFA’s Medical Services department, Nucatola has overseen medical practice at all Planned Parenthood locations since 2009. She also trains new Planned Parenthood abortion doctors and performs abortions herself at Planned Parenthood Los Angeles up to 24 weeks.
The buyers ask Nucatola, “How much of a difference can that actually make, if you know kind of what’s expected, or what we need.”
“It makes a huge difference,” Nucatola replies. “I’d say a lot of people want liver. And for that reason, most providers will do this case under ultrasound guidance, so they’ll know where they’re putting their forceps. The kind of rate-limiting step of the procedure is calvarium. Calvarium—the head—is basically the biggest part.””
Nucatola explains, “We’ve been very good at getting heart, lung, liver, because we know that, so I’m not gonna crush that part, I’m gonna basically crush below, I’m gonna crush above, and I’m gonna see if I can get it all intact.”
“And with the calvarium, in general, some people will actually try to change the presentation so that it’s not vertex,” she continues. “So if you do it starting from the breech presentation, there’s dilation that happens as the case goes on, and often, the last step, you can evacuate an intact calvarium at the end.”
Nucatola also reveals that Planned Parenthood’s national office is concerned about their liability for the sale of fetal parts: “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,” she says. “But I will tell you that behind closed doors these conversations are happening with the affiliates.”
The sale or purchase of human fetal tissue is a federal felony punishable by up to 10 years in prison and a fine of up to $500,000 (42 U.S.C. 289g-2).
A separate clip shows Planned Parenthood President and CEO Cecile Richards praising Nucatola’s work to facilitate connections for fetal tissue collection. “Oh good,” Richards says when told about Nucatola’s support for fetal tissue collection at Planned Parenthood, “Great. She’s amazing.”
The video is the first by The Center for Medical Progress in its “Human Capital” series, a nearly 3-year-long investigative journalism study of Planned Parenthood’s illegal trafficking of aborted fetal parts. Project Lead David Daleiden notes: “Planned Parenthood’s criminal conspiracy to make money off of aborted baby parts reaches to the very highest levels of their organization. Elected officials must listen to the public outcry for Planned Parenthood to be held accountable to the law and for our tax dollars to stop underwriting this barbaric abortion business.”

I hope this is the nail in the coffin of Planned Parenthood, once and for all !!!!
It’s NEVER been about the care of the women or the babies……it’s ALWAYS been about MONEY.
I can’t image anyone who is pro abortion even that would think this was not evil. You would have to have the coldest of hearts!!!
This has been all over conservative blogs. Let’s see if O’Reilly, Hannity or Megyn Kelly follows up on this. Unless it gets broader exposure nothing is going to stop PP funding.
Barbara you are so right! I saw on Fox’s website it had a real good piece about this evil situation. I called Fox and (of course had to leave a message on the comment line) that we want to see it on Hannity, O’Reilly or Kelly! And I bet Susan B. Anthony and those fine pro life groups have probably contacted the media too…..now it is just a question IF they will feature it?
I URGE everyone also to call your Congressmember and Senators to tell them that we want an investigation and we want Planned Parenthood de-funded of taxpayer monies. And here in California we need to contact our State Assemblymembers and Senators and tell them the same thing…..in this last budget, the State of California gave Planned Parenthood 40% more…
ISIS hides their identity by wearing dark masks when they decapitate heads, burn or drown human beings. Deborah Nucatola and Cecile Richards wear proud and even smiling faces when championing their dark deeds of executing babies with beating hearts. and then selling baby livers and body parts. Deborah Nucatola even dines and sips wine while coldheartedly discussing crushing certain body parts, selling baby livers and the mutual goals of the profitable end game. Deborah Nucatola brags and pats herself on the back about recognizing how to kill “the seventeen weeker.” That little “seventeen weeker” was a living, developing baby boy or baby girl.
We are witnessing a female versions of Joseph Menegele, caught in the full bloom video action of brokering evil. Also, Cecil Richard’s response gives solid evidence that Planned Parenthood is very aware of the brokering of baby body parts. The word “fetus” is Latin for “little one”.
When man completely abandons the supernatural, it is only a short time before his actions become completely unnatural. – G.K. Chesterton
“The word “fetus” is Latin for “little one” ” – a weighty reminder, Catherine, of the importance of words. Someday perhaps folks will wake up to the reality of their complicity in farming – farming human beings – beneath the false veneer of choice.
And to think that these benevolent educators – PP – are brought into schools to educate the cows, I mean youth, on sexual health, options, etc. Like Wilbur the pig seeking diet advice from the farmer.
America is finished. Besides being immoral, these acts are illegal. We are doing the same thing Hitler sponsored. With such evilness abounding, I no longer am proud of my country. It almost makes me wish that the Islamic terrorists do succeed in destroying the United States. After all, God allowed it to happen to Israel when she turned away from Him. We deserve a greater punishment, because we were redeemed by the Blood of Christ, and have betrayed Him.
I suspect this monstrous ghoul is having fava beans with a good Chianti with her meal, After World War II, this creature would have been charged with crimes against humanity, right along with the rest of the Nazi leaders.
I should not have called this woman a ghoul and compared her to Hannibal Lector, although her actions are ghoulish and need to be exposed so they stop Some women used to work for Planned Parenthood but got out of the business. I do not know how deeply involved this woman has been in criminal behavior, but the United States legislators do need to investigate. Catholic teaching is that we cannot kill one innocent person to save another.
Ectopic pregnancies are the only pregnancies that actually endanger a woman’s life so that both the woman and child will die. Then the Church allows the ectopic tube to be taken out with the child in it.. If a woman’s life is in actual physical danger, physicians should be trained to do all they can to…
Continued: to save both.
Nevertheless, we must pray that her conscience is enlightened, and she sees the evil of what she is doing. Most likely her conscience is totally dead, but perhaps there is still a spark of light left in it. It is a terrible thing to fall into the hands of the Almighty for sins that are not repented.
