New Planned Parenthood Video Released

Each new video reveals a new level of barbarity.

A Planned Parenthood executive admits in an undercover video that her doctors alter abortion procedures and she manipulates prices to accommodate specific fetal tissue harvesting requests — including delivering fully intact fetuses — though doing so may violate federal law.

In the nearly 16-minute, edited video, the fifth released by Center for Medical Progress, a woman identified as Melissa Farrell, director of research for Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast, discusses pricing for specimens — ranging from intact fetuses to tissue and organs — for outside tissue procurement companies.

“Yeah, and so if we alter our process, and we are able to obtain intact fetal cadavers, then we can make it part of the budget, that any dissections are this, and splitting the specimens into different shipments is this,” Farrell said. “I mean it’s all just a matter of line items.”

This video also reveals the fungible nature of money and how businesses can manage their money. The notion that the taxpayers can fund Planned Parenthood and NOT also fund abortions is laughably naive. After all, it’s all just a matter of line items.

    For law and order types , illegally taken and heavily edited video sure puts a skip in the step

    The fetal tissue is not profited on , but you know that .

    This is about pro birth folks having their moment by any means necessary

    To Jeb Bush who yesterday said he didn’t think we needed $500 million for women’s Heath care issues ,
    Thank you sir !

    That was an early Christmas present that the Left will appreciate – maybe right up to November 16′

    Here’s an idea… about we just quit killing babies. No politics, no random body parts being shipped around, no hidden cameras, just stop killing these little people.

    Advocating baby killing. Interesting.

    When you advocate black babies being harvested in this manner, aren’t you racist?

    Founder of Planned Parenthood wanted to kill African American babies especially.

    So the importance of baby killing trumps racism issues on the left?

  5. Mark Maley

    Here’s a better idea
    Let women vote and men stay out of the issue completely .

    The ” stop killing babies ” line would work better for me if you worried just as much about what happens after they are born .

    This side is super concerned that every fertilized egg is born but tacitly supports one institution that allowed those children to be raped

    They also own a maker and taker mentality .

    Many of those kids will be left at the door because they aren’t makers

    So , if you’d be more concerned about the day after the child is born , I’d feel you more on the outrage

    There’s a lot of opportunity to work together on this issue. I can think of a few areas of common ground that we could get to work on in short order. You want to reduce abortions? I’m ready to roll up my sleeves with you.

    Let’s make pregnancy free. Lots of abortions occur because of financial reasons. I’m sure we could put a dent in those abortion rates just by making all prenatal care and delivery totally free.

    Let’s make contraception totally free. And not just condoms and pills. Let’s break out the good stuff: IUDs and subcutaneous implants. All of it. Totally free. We already know that doing this reduces abortion. No guesswork involved. The study I’m thinking of in 2012 cut it by about 75%.

    So how about it, pro lifers? Who’s in?

  7. Kevin scheunemann


    So the protection of baby killing trumps the racist aspect to abortion?


    I can never figure out the liberal position on this…. Killing African American babies as OK.

    That is the KKK position on the issue BTW.

  8. Mark Maley

    Kev, I have no idea what you are talking about

  9. Pat

    Scott, I agree with what you’re saying. The precious life our children, unborn and born should be our number one priority. We as a society should spare no cost making sure that the unborn child develops into a viable born human. The financial situation of the person carrying the child should be of no consequence. We also shouldn’t forget about that precious human life after it is born. It should be taken care of and nurtured to develop into an adult that will be a productive part of society. Then, and only then, should we turn that person loose to live as an adult and not be a burden on tax payers.

  10. scott

    Nobody else interested in preventing maybe 8 out of 10 abortions? With the help of women’s rights groups and the blessing of the Constitution and the supreme court? It’s there for the taking if you want it. If you’re really passionate about it.

  11. scott

    This is one of the main reasons why I have no patience for the arguments of pro-lifers anymore. Their failure to accept any of the obvious common ground with others makes me conclude that they’re not being entirely forthright about what it is they really care about. Their movement stops looking like a misguided but pious humanitarian cause and a whole lot more like a thinly disguised effort to maintain the subjugation of women, especially with regard to sexual matters. Moreover, the deception (and in many cases self-deception) makes talking about the issue–let alone making any progress on it–impossible.

  12. Owen

    Yes… embrace your misconceptions…

  13. scott

    Please disabuse me of any misconceptions I have, Owen. Why is it that pro-lifers aren’t interested in reducing abortion by 75% with no opposition and without running afoul of the constitution? I have my own theory. Got a better one?

  14. Owen

    Who says they aren’t interested? Because nobody wanted to agree with you in the comments of a blog? Is that your only evidence? Please…

    As for your ideas, you can’t make pregnancy or contraception “free.” All you can do is make someone else pay for it. And generally speaking, when you subsidize something, you get more of it. I’d be in favor of supporting wider availability of contraceptives – like making them more widely available without a prescription – but making everything “free” is rarely the answer.

  15. scott

    Yeah, but in reality they didn’t “get more of it.” They gave away free contraception and got fewer pregnancies. A lot fewer. And a lot fewer abortions. Anyone who claims to be anti-abortion should be all over it. They aren’t. And not just in blog comments. IRL. They aren’t into it. I don’t see them posting that study around trying to drum up support for implementing it in their communities. Or am I missing something?

  16. scott

    I correct myself: what was subsidized was contraception. And we did get more of it, more contraception use–and thus fewer pregnancies and fewer abortions.

    My question remains: Why are pro-lifers uninterested in a method shown to reduce abortion rates by 75%? Especially when it would face no opposition from women’s rights groups and no supreme court challenges?

  17. Mark Maley

    If men could get pregnant , birth control of all kinds would be available liike complimentary peppermint candies at a restraunt .

    Since it’s not women need to polietly ask men ( mostly old white men ) what type of birth control they may use .
    Yes before the act ( unless you’re Catholic ) , no or maybe no on the day after the act .

    Women need to know their place and have the child .
    Their place on earth is designated to produce children under any circumstances they are conceived and to die having the child if need be . Her life is unimportant . Only the birth of another child is important .

    Gee, Why wouldn’t every women line up for miles for that deal ?

  18. Mark Maley

    my wife and daughters won’t look to you for advice on what they do with their bodies.
    And they promise not to tell you what to do with yours .

    That’s not political. It’s them saying mind your own business !

  19. Kraig Sadownikow

    Sure seems political Mark. Your 2nd post is pretty giddy with excitement about November 16th and the impact this topic may play in the election.

    The world is brutal enough as it is. I just can’t get my arms around why intelligent leaders in our communities and government openly advocate for more brutality….unless it is political.

    If there is a way to eliminate 75% of abortions I would be interested in learning more about how to make it happen. I’m not sure the left would be supportive though.

  20. Mark Maley

    My wife would be more than happy to talk to you personally on this subject .

    I know you want to hear differing opinions about how the city is doing . You might be in an echo chamber when it comes to this issue in west bend

    She will make the case far better than I ever could
