Los Angeles, CA - The results of a bold three-year undercover journalism investigation study, released today, expose a national scandal involving the widespread secret and illegal selling of aborted baby body parts for profit by Planned Parenthood, the nation's largest abortion supplier.
In addition, evidence reveals that Planned Parenthood's preferred method of obtaining the intact fetal organs that bring the most profit is the outlawed Partial Birth Abortion method done under ultrasound guidance.
In every step of the body parts trade, public money is involved.
Project leader for this in-depth undercover investigation, known as the Human Capital Project, is David Daleiden of the The Center for Medical Progress.
"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," stated Daleiden.
Operation Rescue President Troy Newman serves on the Board of Daleiden's Center for Medical Progress. During this investigation, Newman advised Daleiden, providing consultation services and material support.
"Abortionists use ultrasound like a butcher uses scales to sell meat by the pound for profit," said Newman.
A video released today shows Dr. Deborah Nucatola, Planned Parenthood Federation of America's Senior Director of Medical Services, describing how abortion procedures are altered - not for the safety of women - but to get the most marketable body parts, including intact livers, hearts, and heads, which are highly sought by those who procure human body tissue for research.
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.
Planned Parenthood CEO Cecile Richards is also seen in the video praising Nucatola's work to facilitate connections for fetal tissue collection.
Evidence further shows that Planned Parenthood has gone to great lengths to keep the public from ever knowing about their illicit human body-parts trade, understanding that if news were to leak, it could spell doom for the abortion giant.
The sale or purchase of human fetal tissue 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).
