Whistleblower Reveals “It’s Basically A Huge Trafficking Of Fetal Tissues”
WARNING: THERE IS VERY DISTURBING IMAGERY OF ABORTED FETUSES IN THE VIDEOS ACCOMPANYING THIS REPORT
A third undercover expose video of Planned Parenthood has been released by the Center For Medical Progress, and as expected, it shows footage of fetal body parts after abortions.
The video features whistleblower Holly O’Donnell, who claims that a biomedical company she was working for was in the business of paying Planned Parenthood clinics for fetal organs, according to the condition of the tissue after being extracted from an abortion.
O’Donnell, a former technician for California-based Stem Express, says “The more valuable the tissue the more money you get, so if you can somehow procure a brain or a heart you’re going to get more money than just umbilical cord.”
“So I guess that’s incentive to try and get the hard stuff because they get more money.” she adds in the documentary style footage.
O’Donnell explains that she was looking for employment as a phlebotomist, simply drawing blood from patients, yet when she applied for a position with Stem Express, the company failed to explain what the role would entail.
“I thought I was going to be just drawing blood, not procuring tissue from aborted fetuses“ she says.
O’Donnell soon discovered, after landing the job, that the company hires procurement techs to “draw blood and dissect dead fetuses, and sell the parts to researchers. They partner with Planned Parenthood and they get part of the money.”
The claims, if true, blow out of the water Planned Parenthood’s repeated denial that they do not profit from selling aborted tissue and organs.
“We were asked to procure certain tissues, like brain, liver, sinus, pancreas, heart, lungs, and pretty much anything on the fetus. It’s basically a huge trafficking of fetal tissues” O’Donnell reveals.
“They weren’t looking for a compassionate individual, at all. They were just looking for someone who could get as much money, as many samples. I think that’s why they were interested in me, as a phlebotomist, cause I can draw quick… They wanted someone who could get the numbers up.” she adds, calling Stem Express “a pretty sick company.”
“Whatever we could procure, they’d get a certain percentage. The main nurse was always trying to make sure we got our specimens. She knew that Planned Parenthood was getting compensated, so she wanted to make sure that everything was going great for us” O’Donnell explains.
O’Donnell revealed that on her first day on the job, she watched people digging through aborted body parts, causing her to pass out and have to be taken to a recovery room.
The video footage also shows medical director for Planned Parenthood Pacific Southwest, Katharine Sheehan, talking about procuring fetal organs with an undercover journalist again posing as a buyer for a biomedical company.
