Second Shocking Video of Another Planned Parenthood Abortionist
Second Shocking Video of Another Planned Parenthood Abortionist
Written By Laurie Higgins   |   07.22.15

The second secretly-recorded Planned Parenthood video is out, and like the first, it reveals that Planned Parenthood is staffed by Josef Mengele wannabe’s.

In this mindboggling video, Dr. Mary Gatter, president of Planned Parenthood’s Medical Directors Council, negotiates compensation for preborn baby body parts:

While discussing the possibility of manipulating abortion procedures to increase the likelihood of preserving babies’ bodies intact, the cold, calculating, conscience-less abortionist Gatter makes this stunning comment:

If we want to pursue this mutually, I’ll mention this to Ian [the abortionist in the facility Gatter runs in Pasadena] in terms of how he feels about using a less crunchy technique to get more whole specimens.

“Progressives,” always eager to manipulate language to promote moral deviance, refer continually to “specimens” and “tissue” rather than body parts. They seek to equate baby hearts, lungs, livers, and limbs with tumors and cysts without  explicitly making the case for equivalence. They hope that no one notices their sickening use of euphemistic language.

When the buyers from the fake fetal-tissue procurement company inquire about the possibility of acquiring “intact specimens” from 10-12 week human fetuses, Gatter responds:

So, that’s an interesting concept. Let me explain to you a little bit of the problem, which may not be a big problem. If our usual technique is suction, at 10-12 weeks, and we switch to using an IPAS [manual vacuum aspirator] or something with less suction, or to increase the odds that it will come out as an intact specimen, then we’re kind of violating the protocol that says to the patient that “We’re not doing anything different in our care of you.” Now to me that’s a specious little argument, and I wouldn’t object to asking Ian, who’s our surgeon who does the cases, to use an IPAS [manual vacuum aspirator] at that age in order to increase the odds that he’s going to get an intact specimen.

Manipulating the abortion procedure to preserve babies’ bodies intact for the purposes of “donating” them to medical research doesn’t only “kind of” violate “protocol.”  It also violates federal law.

Even more seriously, the deliberate killing of innocent humans, whether preserving their bodily integrity or destroying  it in the process of murdering them, violates God’s command and, therefore, should violate the consciences of all humans.

Federal law allows for “reasonable payments associated with the transportation, implantation, processing, preservation, quality control, or storage of human fetal tissue. Here are Dr. Gatter’s compensation considerations:

If [other California Planned Parenthood affiliates] are getting substantially more, then we can discuss it….[The amount of money] has to be big enough that it makes it worthwhile for me….so let me just figure out what others are getting, and if this is in the ballpark, then it’s fine. If it’s still low, then we can bump it up. I want a Lamborghini [giggle].

Note that when Gatter discusses the possibility of increasing compensation from her original figures of $50-75 per “specimen,” she does not refer to transportation, processing, preservation, quality control or storage costs but to what other Planned Parenthood facilities are getting.

Planned Parenthood president Cecile Richards apologized last week for abortionist Dr. Deborah Nucatola’s tone when discussing crushing preborn babies’ bodies. It appears that Richards is going to be one busy lady, apologizing for the tone-deafness of Planned Parenthood leaders. It is hoped that one day, she’ll apologize for the murders about which her employees talk in such cavalier tones. If Richards ever fully apprehends the enormity of the evil the organization she leads and defends has committed, it’s hard to imagine that she would be able to survive her guilt and grief.

Recently, liberal Chicago Tribune columnist Rex Huppke expressed his annoyance at the “pragmatic, dismissive, clinical, compassionless” response from Planned Parenthood on the first secretly-taped exposé of their disposition of preborn babies. He expressed no offense about the careful crushing of preborn babies’ bodies to maximize their utility for medical researchers. In the perverse existential universe of “progressives,” what is the source of tiny human livers, lungs, limbs, and hearts other than tiny humans?

Every time a “progressive” refers to the inappropriateness of the tone in these videos, they dig themselves a deeper ethical hole. It becomes incumbent upon them to explain why “pragmatic, clinical, compassionless” tones are inappropriate. If these “specimens” were the ontological equivalent of cysts, tumors, or liposuctioned fat, no one would argue that discussions should be somber or compassionate.

The product of conception between two humans is undeniably human. Since when does dependency-status, physical location, or absence of developmental maturity grant more developed humans the moral right to exterminate less-developed humans? And if the right to control one’s reproductive capacity directly conflicts with another person’s right simply to exist, which is a right of a higher moral order? What kind of people find tone-deaf discussions about “donating” preborn baby parts a greater moral outrage than poisoning, crushing, and dismembering preborn babies?

Huppke admits that “in parts” of the first video, abortionist Deborah Nucatola “comes off as a monster.” There’s a reason for that monstrous image. Crushing human beings—whether for convenience, profit, or medical research—is a monstrous act.

Please don’t allow yourselves to become desensitized to the evil revealed in these videos. Don’t allow your passion to wane when the press hurriedly moves on to other stories. And don’t allow yourselves to be distracted by the red herrings the Left is frantically tossing up about the ethics of secret recordings, or the legality of compensation for “donations,” or the value of “donated” baby body parts for medical research, or their pathetic apologies for tone.

Send letters to your local press. Donate to organizations committed to eradicating this evil from our midst. Contact your lawmakers, demanding that the unscrupulous Planned Parenthood Feticide Federation of America be defunded and investigated. Don’t let up. The Left never does. It’s not the rights of women that are at stake. It’s the lives of babies. There exists no moral right to kill innocent humans.
