A new documentary-style video was released today about Planned Parenthood’s alleged “black market” in harvesting and selling fetal body parts.
The 12-minute video, titled “Human Capital,” features a woman who says she worked for a company that procured tissue and organs for Planned Parenthood clinics describing what she considers the profit motive involved in the harvesting of aborted fetal body parts.
Viewers should be warned that the video is graphic. There are images of aborted fetal body parts.
“I thought I was going to be just drawing blood, not procuring tissue from aborted fetuses,” says Holly O’Donnell, who claims she fainted on her first day of work.
They [Planned Parenthood] get paid from it. They do get some kind of benefit.
Under federal law, it is illegal to profit off of the sale or purchase of human fetal tissue.
The video also features undercover footage of Dr. Savita Ginde, vice president and medical director of Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountains in Denver.
Standing in the Planned Parenthood abortion clinic pathology laboratory, where fetuses are brought after abortions, Ginde suggests that the clinic benefits in some way from harvesting these organs, stating that payment per organ “works a little better,” according to the video.
“I think a per-item thing works a little better, just because we can see how much we can get out of it,” she says.
The episode, produced by the Center for Medical Progress, follows two undercover videos depicting senior Planned Parenthood officials discussing the harvesting of organs from aborted fetuses.
Planned Parenthood has adamantly denied that the organization profits off tissue from aborted babies, and says the videos have been heavily edited to depict Planned Parenthood workers in the worst way possible.
The previous two videos triggered congressional investigations and calls to end taxpayer funding for Planned Parenthood.
According to its annual report, Planned Parenthood received more than $500 million in taxpayer funding while performing 327,653 abortions, making it the nation’s largest abortion provider.
In the coming weeks, the Center for Medical Progress is expected to release more episodes as part of its “Human Capital” series.
