Fire Station Baby

Safe Haven Baby Thanks Her ‘Tummy Mommy’ For Her ‘Really Good Life’

June 11, 2015 10:10 PM                                                                                                                                                                                                                 Halle Burke (credit: CBS)

DENVER (CBS4) – A dozen years ago a young mother gave up her newborn. She handed the baby girl to two firefighters at a Westminster fire station and drove away. That “fire station baby” recently shared her story with CBS4.

Halle Burke talked about her “really good life” with her adoptive parents. She explained her hope of finding her birth mother. And she met the firefighters who took her in.

“I’ve never forgotten that call,” Westminster Fire Department paramedic Duane Linkus said.

It was in the early evening of Feb. 15, 2003. Then-engineer Tom O’Neill answered a knock on the fire station door.

“Out on this side of the door there was just a couple there and they handed me a baby,” said O’Neill.

He said he immediately called for paramedic Linkus.

“I look at the child,” Linkus said, “Child looks fine and Tom’s giving me the look in his eyes that something’s going on. And that’s when it hits me, that she’s here to drop this baby off.”

Under the 2000 Safe Haven law it’s legal. A mother in crisis in Colorado can surrender her baby up to 3 days old at a fire station or hospital with no questions asked.

“And then that was it and she left,” said Linkus.

“Now I’m here,” 12-year-old Halle told CBS4’s Kathy Walsh.

Her mother couldn’t handle raising her, but a loving couple immediately embraced her. In 2003 Julie and John Burke were reeling from an adoption overturned when a friend called. John Burke says he was told, “Oh my gosh, there’s a baby left at a fire station. Can you guys get that one?”

It turns out they could and did.

“She was so tiny,” said Julie Burke.” And the biggest thing on her were these big, beautiful, brown eyes.”

They named her Halle for a special reason.

“After doing fertility treatments for however long we did them, we were like ‘Hallelujuah’ now we have a baby,” said Julie.

Halle has known her history for years.

“When I hear that story, I always think of hope. I always think that I am going to find my tummy mommy before it’s too late,” Halle said.

She wants to see if the woman she calls her “tummy mommy” looks like her. She wants to ask her about her life and thank her.

“Because there’s a lot of women, people, who are afraid to have babies and when they do they make bad choices about it, but my tummy mommy made a really, really good choice,” Halle said.

Over the years the Burke’s adopted two more children. And Julie wrote the book “Fire Station Baby” hoping Halle’s birth mom will read it and contact Halle.

“I bet she would think ‘Wow, that’s my daughter,’ ” said Halle with a laugh.

Recently Halle had her first reunion with the fire crew. She thanked them, gave them copies of the book, and hugged them all.

They were this fire station baby’s first friends. They are now family.

Pro-aborts will do anything for money – Part 15

An update from Life News on October 28, 2015:                                                                                                                                                           

Planned Parenthood Abortionist Pulls Babies Out Feet First to Sell “Fully Intact” Aborted Baby

NATIONAL   KATIE YODER   OCT 28, 2015   |   11:24AM    WASHINGTON, DC

As additional footage emerges, Planned Parenthood looks more and more like a Clinic of Corpses.

The Center for Medical Progress (CMP) released an 11th video revealing Planned Parenthood’s abortion practices on Oct. 27. This time, the camera caught Texas abortionist, Amna Dermish, describing how she will sometimes “switch to breech” for abortions and aims to get “specimens out pretty intact.” She laughed over her next goal – to “strive for” baby heads – and smiled while agreeing that aborted baby hearts are “cute.”

Dermish performs abortions up to 21.6 weeks at the Planned Parenthood clinic in Austin, Texas. She was trained by Planned Parenthood’s Senior Director of Medical Services Deborah Nucatola, who appeared in the first CMP video.

In this new video, an undercover camera showed investigators acting as buyers from a fetal tissue procurement company as they met with Dermish and an unnamed representative from Whole Women’s Health.

In their exchange, Dermish revealed that her clinic is “increasing to 30” abortions per day, 10 days a month.

“My aim is usually to get the specimens out pretty intact,” said Dermish, before admitting, “I can if I need to” convert to breech to get the baby out.

Later in the video, Dermish denied providing specimens for research during her time at the Planned Parenthood clinic in Texas (“little over a year”), so it’s unclear why she focused on keeping aborted baby parts intact.

Converting to breech (feet-first) is the first step of a D&E procedure or partial birth abortion, illegal in the United States since 2003.

Dermish confessed that she sometimes moves a 2nd-trimester baby to breech position by using ultrasound guidance. “Especially the 20-weekers are a lot harder versus the 18-weekers,” she said, “so at that point I’ll switch to breech.”

One of the investigators chimed in on the similarity between her and Nucatola.

“That’s what Deb [Nucatola] was telling us, was it really makes a difference for tissue collection at PPLA,” he said. In the first CMP video, Nucatola described a partial-birth abortion technique to obtain aborted baby parts.

When he brought up harvesting an intact baby brain, Dermish replied, “I haven’t been able to do that yet,” but then laughed, “This will give me something to strive for!”

The conversation turned gruesome when Dermish described aborting a 20-week-old baby.

“So usually, what I do is, if it’s a breech presentational, I’ll go for the extremities first,” she said, “the lower extremities, and then go for the spine and sort of bring it down that way. She illustrated the motion with her hands clawed in the air, pulling up and down.

At another point, she reiterated, “I always try and keep the trunk intact just by function of always trying to aim for the spine to bring it down.”

Instead of seeing the horror in her practice, she and the other representative agreed that the end result was “cute.”

“One of our POC [products of conception] persons is really into fetal development,” Dermish recalled. “She’ll pull out like kidneys, and the heart and like the heart we frequently see at 9 weeks and she always looks for it.”

The Whole Women’s Health rep called the heart “cute” while Dermish laughed and agreed with a “yes.”

“It’s amazing,” Dermish said, “I have so much respect for development, it’s just so incredible.”

According to CMP, because Dermish does not use the chemical digoxin while aborting babies before 20 weeks, “her feet-first, intact extraction abortions are done on living fetuses.” Citing U.S. law, CMP added that “using ultrasound guidance to manipulate the fetus from vertex to breech orientation before extracting the yet-living fetus is a hallmark of the illegal partial-birth abortion procedure.”

CMP Project Lead David Daleiden criticized the findings in his latest video.

“Less than 4 miles away from the Texas state capitol, Planned Parenthood routinely practices barbaric partial-birth abortions on living, late-term fetuses,” he began, before calling for action. “State-level criminal investigations must press charges, and Congress’ new select committee must pursue a deep and comprehensive accounting of Planned Parenthood’s atrocities against humanity.”

Texas recently moved to end state Planned Parenthood funding from Medicaid, citing fraud and abortion-related crimes.

In addition to the above video, CMP also posted the unedited footage of the exchange with Dermish.

Planned Parenthood History

Planned Parenthood received more than $528 million in taxpayer funding during the fiscal year 2013-2014. That amounted to more than $1.4 million per day, through government grants, contracts and Medicaid reimbursements.

According to the Charlotte Lozier Institute, the U.S. ranks second in the world for the number of abortions performed each year. The research arm of the Susan B. Anthony List also found that, “If Planned Parenthood were included for comparison, it would rank sixth in the world in number of abortions carried out annually.”

Media History

Since the release of CMP’s first video on July 14, the broadcast networks have proven hesitant to publicize the story – and when they did, they refused to even utter the word “baby.”

Two months after the first video’s release, MRC Culture found that ABC, NBC and CBS had aired a mere 0.13% of the CMP footage during their news shows – or 1 minute, 13 seconds of more than 16 hours.

In early October, MRC Culture discovered that the networks spent more time combined airing Cecile Richards’ defense of Planned Parenthood during a congressional hearing than showing the actual videos themselves.

From the beginning, the liberal media raced to defend Planned Parenthood. In the first 9 hours and 30 minutes of news shows broadcast after the story broke, ABC, NBC and CBS, spent only 39 seconds on the first video. It took more than 24 hours before all three covered the story. In the week after the first video, the networks gave a mere 9 minutes and 11 seconds to the story (in contrast, the nets devoted more than three times that to the Susan G. Komen controversy, when the charity temporarily decided to defund the abortion giant).

ABC, NBC and CBS prioritized animals over aborted babies, by covering the shooting of Cecil the lion more in one day than they did these videos in two weeks and in their reporting on birth of the National Zoo’s panda cubs.

Not only that, but also they refused to cover the tens of thousands of Americans speaking out against Planned Parenthood during nationwide rallies held in late August – except as a side note when CBS tried to connect the event to arson.

Citing information from MRC studies, both Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT) and members of Congress led by Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) have slammed the media for their lack of coverage on the videos.

The media similarly stayed silent on the case of Philadelphia abortionist Kermit Gosnell. Gosnell’s trial, in which witnesses described baby abortion survivors “swimming” in toilets “to get out,” attracted a scant 12–15 reporters. Only after 56 days, multiple letters from members of the House of Representatives and a public outcry, did all three broadcast networks report on Gosnell.

After Stericycle "fired" this clinic, they stored baby bodies in freezers for 5 months

An update from Life Action News on October 26, 2015:                                                                                                                                     

INVESTIGATIVE

Abortion facility stored 5 months worth of aborted babies in freezers

10:00 AM, OCT 26, 2015 

In a damning leaked video that appears to be footage obtained by The Center for Medical Progress, an abortion facility owner cavalierly admits to storing five months worth of aborted babies in freezers, as she debated over how to properly dispose of the remains.

The video released by Got News were reportedly obtained by CMP at a conference hosted by the National Abortion Federation, which has been seeking to stop the release of additional footage. On tape, abortion industry executives describe fetal disposition methods, such as throwing aborted babies in the garbage disposal, incinerating the remains of preborn children, or sending them to funeral homes, crematoriums, and medical waste facilities.

The recordings expose how abortionists are concerned that fetal disposition and fetal storage practices will create a public relations nightmare, which would lead to the closure of certain abortion facilities.

During a panel on fetal disposition, Renee Chelian of Northland Family Planning in Michigan admitted that her facility was perplexed about how to dispose of fetal remains. Due to Michigan’s lax laws on medical waste, Chelian said many of the facilities in the Detroit metropolitan area were “using garbage disposals,” which caused her concern over potential publicity. Chelian details how she visited funeral homes and crematoriums to determine how to dispose of the bodies in order to avoid a scandal.

“I was busy contacting everybody that I could, that, ‘You have to stop. This cannot be–if this cannot be on the front page of the New York Times, you shouldn’t be doing it. Any of you.’ And they consistently showed me like a 40-year-old law in Michigan that said pathological waste sewer system. I couldn’t really argue with them.”

Chelian, who worked with Stericycle, a medical and pharmaceutical waste management company, said she was overwhelmed with the remains of baby parts stockpiling in her facility freezers. For five months, Chelian described how aborted babies were packed in freezers, and she had to find a way to discard of them. No company seemed willing —at first— to help her staff dispose of the remains.

“Nobody wants to talk about dead bodies. And nobody with me, I have to say. There was a point, when Stericycle fired us, that I had 5 months of fetal tissue in my freezers. We were renting freezers to put them in, this was all I thought about.”

Consumed with the thought that she could not dispose of the remains, Chelian said she was “ready to drive to upper Michigan and have a bonfire,” or determine how “far in the woods would I have to go to have this fire, that nobody was going to see me,” to which the audience responds with laughter.

Chelian admits that hospitals, although reluctant at first to work alongside her facility, began meeting privately with her staff.

“We started working with hospitals, who didn’t really want to be seen with us. We met them in like, Denny’s restaurants. There’s not even very many of those left, they wanted to make sure nobody would see them with us.”

The hospitals, reportedly, were “terrified of a public relations nightmare,” and of news that hospitals froze the body parts of aborted children, miscarriages, and their patients— all which ended up with Stericycle, or were incinerated at the hospital itself.

“And they were terrified of a public relations nightmare, that hospitals actually had big freezers with breasts, and kneecaps, and gallbladders, and abortions or miscarriages, and that they all go in jars together at some point, and they go to Stericycle, unless the hospital happens to have their own incinerator, which is rarer and rarer. The guy from Stericycle was quick to point that out to me.”

A crematorium the abortion facility worked with was willing to incinerate the bodies of the preborn children; however, it requested Chelian’s staff to pick up the ashes.

“And I was like, ‘I dunno. Do they have to?’ And they were like, ‘Well, we can’t just dump them, somebody has to be responsible for them,’ which also made me really worried I was just gonna have to open some room somewhere where I just had bottles of ashes.” [audience laughter]

Chelian then jokes about the process, telling attendees, “You know, I want you to laugh about this. This is funny. I mean, it’s funny in a really sick way.”

Due to issues surrounding the disposal of aborted babies, using the garbage disposal to chop up the bodies and send them into the sewer system was “an option,” Chelian explained. However, the Northland Family Planning head admitted that she would be doing exactly what she criticized other abortions facilities for doing: throwing the bodies of aborted children in the sewer system, along with garbage.

“I mean, it was the worst, I dreamt about how to dispose of fetal tissue… I mean I was so desperate, the antis found a way to close us.”

The video on fetal disposition is among 11 videos released by Got News, which reportedly obtained the recordings by The Center for Medical Progress from a source on Capitol Hill. A congressional committee is currently reviewing the undercover footage, and has not released the videos to the public.

The leaked videos appear to be among footage obtained by CMP, showing Planned Parenthood and abortion industry executives discussing the harvesting and sale of aborted baby parts.

Pro-aborts will do anything for money – Part 14

From Live Action News on October 22, 2015:

BREAKING: Leaked tapes show conference attendees applauding horrific late-term abortion procedure

8:16 PM, OCT 22, 2015 

An online news group has released a series of videos that they say are undercover tapes recorded by The Center for Medical Progress. The footage appears to show top-level abortion industry executives discussing their baby parts harvesting trade. Got News, the group that released the tapes, say they “obtained all of the videos from a source on Capitol Hill.”

Video footage seen here says it was obtained from a “National Abortion Foundation’s annual meeting in San Francisco, CA, on April 7th, 2014.” We do not know of a group called the National Abortion Foundation and believe this description is a typo of National Abortion Federation, which issued a letter in response to the apparent leak.

On the tape titled “2nd Trimester Provider Self Care” shows panelists discussing the “stigma” associated with the procedure. Attendees respond with laughter and applause as former President of Planned Parenthood California, Dr. Uta Landy, read comments by abortion providers (watch this section here):

“I don’t like saying I am dismembering a fetus…It makes me feel bad.”

“I find second trimester abortions grotesque.”

“I feel like any time you enter the body, it’s grotesque. [laughter] I just want to honor that we have different feelings about this–we need to be prepared.”

“My coping mechanism is to cope with the baby fetus –reverence with something that was alive and is now not.”

“An eyeball just fell down into my lap and that’s gross [laughter], and I say to myself, ‘This abortion is going well; it’s going safely.’” [laughter and applause]

The first video in the series reveals Deb VanDerhei, a national director of the Consortium of Abortion Providers, admitting to investigators with The Center for Medical Progress that Planned Parenthood cannot prevent abortion facilities from breaking the law.

The video was released shortly after Planned Parenthood President Cecile Richards announced that the abortion giant would end receiving financial “reimbursements” for fetal tissue harvesting.

Additional released videos by Got News include undercover footage of investigators meeting with representatives inside the abortion industry, as well as tapes obtained at a Planned Parenthood workshop and other events.

Today, Got News announced that they were threatened with a demand letter from the legal group representing the National Abortion Federation, which is seeking to prevent CMP from releasing additional footage.

Yesterday we were hit with an unconstitutional demand letter from Morrison & Foerster, the firm representing the National Abortion Federation in its suit against David Daleiden and the Center for Medical Progress.

David Daleiden, project lead with CMP, and his team, have been prevented by a temporary retraining order from releasing videos recorded at the National Abortion Federation conference.

Another reason to be at the clinic as a peaceful witness to the abortion industry

“I Can’t Work Here!” Woman Heading to Abortion Clinic for a Job Changes Her Mind

STATE   SHAWN CARNEY   OCT 21, 2015   |   8:51AM    NASHVILLE, TN

We’ve seen 121 abortion workers have a change of heart and quit their jobs during 40 Days for Life campaigns.

Many of those workers tell us they’d spent years being deceived by the abortion industry … and had deceived themselves about the reality of the work they were doing. They justified it every day. But eventually, your prayerful presence helped them find a way out.

Your presence can also speak to potential workers … and get them away from the abortion business before they ever start.

During a week in which a new Gallup poll showed that Planned Parenthood’s brand is at an all-time low, it seems appropriate to share a story about how a would-be employee turned around at the last moment.

Your prayerful presence represents the last hope for the babies; but it can also be a sign of hope for the workers as well.

In Nashville, Tennessee, as three vigil participants prayed outside Planned Parenthood in Nashville, they watched as a woman drove into the lot and parked. About a minute later, she backed out of her parking space and headed towards the driveway.

One of the volunteers offered her a pamphlet and asked if she was there seeking information about abortion. “No,” she said. “I was going to apply for a job.”

The woman said she was a health care professional. “But I saw the signs and you all praying … I changed my mind. I can’t work here!”

The Legacy of Planned Parenthood

An  update from Life News on October 16, 2015:                                                                                                                                                        

Planned Parenthood Turns 99 Today: Has Killed 7 Million Babies in Abortions

NATIONAL   STEVEN ERTELT   OCT 16, 2015   |   1:30PM    WASHINGTON

Planned Parenthood, the nation’s biggest abortion business, is celebrating its 99th birthday today and the abortion giant has done over 7 million abortions since Roe v. Wade, more than any other abortion company.

Jim Sedlak of American Life League says the abortion giant has built itself on Margaret Sanger’s racist philosophies. Sanger founded Planned Parenthood on October 16, 1916 along with her sister and a friend and opened the first Planned Parenthood in Brooklyn, New York.

“Planned Parenthood Federation of America dates its beginning to Oct. 16, 1916, when Margaret Sanger opened the nation’s first birth control clinic in Brooklyn, New York,” he explained. “Sanger had three basic philosophies that are still active within Planned Parenthood today.

One of those was a passion to prevent the birth of “defectives,” which Sedlak says led to her stating in her 1932 Plan for Peace that persons from “dysgenic groups” should be given their choice of sterilization or confinement on a farm for the rest of their lives. Sanger was a member of the American Eugenics Society.

“Planned Parenthood does not make public the race of its abortion clients anymore. In the 1990s, it revealed that 43 percent of its abortions were on blacks and other minorities – who only made up 22 percent of the population,” he explained.

Planned parenthood is not only the nation’s largest abortion business but it’s now known for selling aborted babies ad their body partsThe Planned Parenthood abortion business has announced it will stop accepting financial payments for the body parts from aborted babies, though it will continue to harvest body parts from aborted babies and donate them and there is no way of knowing for certain if the sales will truly cease.

Congress has had multiple hearings investigating numerous abuses and potential violation of multiple laws to sell aborted baby parts. And a recently-released analysis from Coalfire Systems that stated the videos shot by the CMP are completely authentic and not deceptively edited as Planned Parenthood has tried to claim.

When Planned Parenthood Federation of America (PPFA) released its 2013-2014 annual report the numbers showed abortion is still a very large portion of Planned Parenthood’s business and income. The report indicates Planned Parenthood did 327,653 abortions in 2013, an increase over the 327,166 abortions it did in 2012.

While it remains America’s biggest abortion corporation, the “nonprofit” continued to make money — bringing in $305.4 million last year and $305.3 million this year. Planned Parenthood continued to receive over a half-billion dollars in taxpayer money, as it took in $540 million in 2012 and $528 million in 2013.

“Despite this lack of increase in its primary business, Planned Parenthood continued to receive over a half-billion dollars in taxpayer money,” Sedlak said. “It has such a tremendous publicity machine that it convinced corporate and private donors to increase donations by more than $75 million (from $315.4 million to $391.8 million).”

“The increased donations, plus an increase of $28 million in “other operating revenue” and the reduction in costs from closing clinics, led to a near-record $127.1 million in profits for the largest abortion chain in the nation. This was the second highest reported annual profit in Planned Parenthood’s history,” he explained to LifeNews.

Some other takeaways from Planned Parenthood’s own figures:

  • In 2013, abortions made up 94% of Planned Parenthood’s pregnancy services.
  • For every adoption referral, Planned Parenthood performed 174 abortions.
  • While abortions rose, Planned Parenthood adoption referrals dropped 14% in one year, and prenatal care services dropped 4%.
  • Planned Parenthood’s cancer prevention services are down 17% over one year, and contraceptive services dropped by 4%.
  • During fiscal year 2013-2014, Planned Parenthood received more than $528 million in taxpayer funding, or more than $1.4 million per day, in the form of government grants, contracts, and Medicaid reimbursements.
  • Taxpayer funding accounts for 41% of Planned Parenthood’s overall revenue.
  • Planned Parenthood reported more than $127 million in excess revenue, and more than $1.4 billion in net assets.

While it did more abortions, Planned Parenthood’s contraceptive business declined from 3,724.558 customers in 2012 to 3,577,348 customers in 2013.

“The new Planned Parenthood Annual Report shows one thing – Planned Parenthood is all about money, not health care,” Sedlak said. “This report demonstrates that Planned Parenthood has hit a roadblock in its efforts to entice the American public to use its so-called health services.”

After reviewing the report, SBA List President Marjorie Dannenfelsertold LifeNews:

“The abortion rate may be declining across America, but not in Planned Parenthood clinics. Their latest annual report is fresh evidence that Planned Parenthood remains an abortion-centered, profit-driven business. In 2013, Planned Parenthood upped the number of abortions they performed to 327,653. Meanwhile, their already limited cancer screenings, prenatal services, adoption referrals – and even contraception services – continue to drop. Planned Parenthood claims to be an altruistic health care provider for women and girls but their bottom line is all about abortion.”

Pro-aborts will do anything for money – Part 13

An update from Life News on October 13, 2015:                                                                                                                                                      

Planned Parenthood to Stop Selling Aborted Baby Body Parts, Will Still Harvest and Donate Them

NATIONAL   STEVEN ERTELT   OCT 13, 2015   |   11:15AM    WASHINGTON, DC

The Planned Parenthood abortion business has announced it will stop accepting financial payments for the body parts from aborted babies. The abortion giant has been exposed in a series of undercover videos discussing how it sells aborted babies and their body parts for profit and breaks multiple federal laws to do so.

But today, according to the Wall St. Journal, Planned Parenthood president Cecile Richards announced in a letter to the National Institutes of Health that planned Parenthood will stop accepting “reimbursement” from the sales of aborted fetal body parts. Attacking the pro-life group that exposed her, Richards says the move is designed to take away the “smokescreen” of the “extremists” behind the Center for Medical Progress videos.

Richards claims the decision “is first and foremost about preserving the ability of our patients to donate tissue, and to expose our opponents’ false charges about this limited but important work.”

As the Wall Street Journal reports:

“I want to be completely clear about two things: First, Planned Parenthood’s policies on fetal tissue donation already exceed the legal requirements,” Richards wrote to NIH. “Now we’re going even further in order to take away any basis for attacking Planned Parenthood to advance an anti-abortion political agenda.

“And, second, our decision not to take any reimbursement for expenses should not be interpreted as a suggestion that anyone else should not take reimbursement or that the law in this area isn’t strong,” she added.

“The real goal of these extremists has nothing to do with our fetal tissue donation compliance process but is instead to ban abortion in the U.S. and block women from getting any health care from Planned Parenthood,” Ms. Richards wrote. “Today, we’re taking their smokescreen away.”

Dawn Laguens, executive vice president of Planned Parenthood said the decision was made jointly by Ms. Richards, affiliates and chief medical officers.

Richards also admits that Planned Parenthood companies in multiple states have been involved in selling the body parts of aborted babies. The letter states:

Fetal tissue has been provided by affiliates in California and Washington state, and the Washington clinics haven’t been taking any money for it, she said. The Oregon affiliate has been providing placental tissue for reimbursement. Planned Parenthood didn’t disclose the amount it will forgo with its new policy.

Planned Parenthood said they didn’t have an exact dollar figure of how much procuring tissue without getting reimbursed will cost them or the two affiliates.

Though Planned Parenthood will no longer sell aborted babies and their body parts, women having abortions can still donate them:

Under federal law, the tissue can be sent directly to university research centers or to third parties that process it and provide the material to researchers, but it is illegal to profit from tissue. Planned Parenthood has said it only procures fetal tissue for research, not transplantation, and it only recovers reasonable costs.

In her letter, Ms. Richards said the decision to forgo reimbursement shouldn’t be interpreted as a suggestion that other clinics should follow suit or that the law is weak, according to the letter to the NIH. She also said the organization will continue to give women the option to donate fetal tissue.

Congress has had multiple hearings investigating numerous abuses and potential violation of multiple laws to sell aborted baby parts.

In the first hearing on Planned Parenthood, James Bopp, the general counsel for the National Right to Life Committee, told the House Judiciary Committee that Planned Parenthood likely broke multiple federal laws in its sale of aborted babies and their body parts for research.

He said, “Recorded conversations, released by the Center for Medical Progress reveal many legal issues with Planned Parenthood’s procedures and practices regarding fetal tissue procurement.”

During a second hearing, Democrats on the panel complained that the videos showing the abuses at Planned Parenthood were “heavily edited.” But when Republicans on the committee attempted to show the videos, they objected and refused to watch them.

At a third hearing, Planned Parenthood CEO Cecile Richards defended the sales of abortion babies. She contended that no baby has ever been born alive following a botched abortionshe essentially admitted that claims Planned Parenthood does mammograms are a lie, and she defended her exorbitantly high salary as the head of the nation’s biggest abortion business.

“These procedures and practices of Planned Parenthood, and their tissue procurement partners, show that federal laws when applicable, have been and are continuing to be violated during the procurement and sale of human fetal tissue,” Bopp explained.

Meanwhile, Congressional Republicans are looking to use the reconciliation process to approve legislation to de-fund the Planned Parenthood abortion business, which has been caught selling aborted babies and their body partsAfter the House approved the de-funding measureSenate Democrats defeated a bill to fund the federal government that included language de-funding Planned Parenthood for one year while the Congressional investigation continues into how it allegedly violated multiple laws to sell aborted babies and their body parts.

House Republican leaders are planning to target Planned Parenthood’s funding by immediately drafting a fast-track reconciliation bill that would be able to overcome the Democrats’ filibuster and be approved on a majority vote in the Senate.

While the reconciliation process would result in getting a bill to de-fund Planned Parenthood to pro-abortion President Barack Obama’s desk, Obama has already promised repeatedly to veto any bill that revokes taxpayer funding for the abortion company. The Senate does not have enough votes to overcome such a veto, leading some pro-life groups to point out that there is little hope of de-funding Planned Parenthood until the election of a pro-life president next year.

“The Administration strongly opposes Senate passage of the Senate amendment to H.J.Res. 61, making continuing appropriations for fiscal year (FY) 2016, and for other purposes, which contains highly objectionable provisions that advance a narrow ideological agenda,” the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) said before the vote. Eliminating federal funding to Planned Parenthood would “limit access” to healthcare for women, men, families and “disproportionately” affect low-income people, the OMB said.

Weeks ago, a previous Senate vote on de-funding Planned Parenthood saw Senate Democrats filibuster and block legislation to revoke $550 million in taxpayer funding.

A new Congressional report finds that de-funding the Planned Parenthood abortion business — even for one year — would save “several thousand” unborn babies from the nightmare of abortion. The report also finds de-funding Planned Parenthood would save the federal government $235 million.

The 10th video by The Center for Medical Progress features several top-level Planned Parenthood executives discussing the organization’s secretive practices around aborted fetal parts harvesting. The video includes comments from Deborah VanDerhei, the National Director of the organization’s Consortium of Abortion Providers, describing the harvesting of fetal body parts as “donation for remuneration.”

The expose’ videos catching Planned Parenthood officials selling the body parts of aborted babies have shocked the nation. Here is a list of all ten:

  • In the first video: Dr. Deborah Nucatola of Planned Parenthood commented on baby-crushing: “We’ve been very good at getting heart, lung, liver, because we know that, so I’m not gonna crush that part, I’m gonna basically crush below, I’m gonna crush above, and I’m gonna see if I can get it all intact.”
  • In the second video: Planned Parenthood’s Dr. Mary Gatter joked, “I want a Lamborghini” as she negotiated the best price for baby parts.
  • In the third video: Holly O’Donnell, a former Stem Express employee who worked inside a Planned Parenthood clinic, detailed first-hand the unspeakable atrocities and how she fainted in horror over handling baby legs.
  • In the fourth video: Planned Parenthood’s Dr. Savita Ginde stated, “We don’t want to do just a flat-fee (per baby) of like, $200. A per-item thing works a little better, just because we can see how much we can get out of it.” She also laughed while looking at a plate of fetal kidneys that were “good to go.”
  • In the fifth video: Melissa Farrell of Planned Parenthood-Gulf Coast in Houston boasted of Planned Parenthood’s skill in obtaining “intact fetal cadavers” and how her “research” department “contributes so much to the bottom line of our organization here, you know we’re one of the largest affiliates, our Research Department is the largest in the United States.”
  • In the sixth video: Holly O’Donnell described technicians taking fetal parts without patient consent: “There were times when they would just take what they wanted. And these mothers don’t know. And there’s no way they would know.”
  • In the seventh and perhaps most disturbing video: Holly O’Donnell described the harvesting, or “procurement,” of organs from a nearly intact late-term fetus aborted at Planned Parenthood Mar Monte’s Alameda clinic in San Jose, CA. “‘You want to see something kind of cool,’” O’Donnell says her supervisor asked her. “And she just taps the heart, and it starts beating. And I’m sitting here and I’m looking at this fetus, and its heart is beating, and I don’t know what to think.”
  • In the eighth video: StemExpress CEO Cate Dyer admits Planned Parenthood sells “a lot of” fully intact aborted babies.
  • The ninth video: catches a Planned Parenthood medical director discussing how the abortion company sells fully intact aborted babies — including one who “just fell out” of the womb.
  • The 10th video: catches the nation’s biggest abortion business selling specific body parts — including the heart, eyes and “gonads” of unborn babies.The video also shows the shocking ways in which Planned Parenthood officials admit that they are breaking federal law by selling aborted baby body parts for profit.

The full, unedited videos have confirmed that revelations that some aborted baby remains sold by Planned Parenthood go to biotech companies for the purpose of creating “humanized” mice. Meanwhile, Planned Parenthood has been exposed as having sold body parts from aborted babies for as much as 15 years.

The federal law that technically prohibits the sale of aborted babies and their body parts was written by a pro-abortion Congressman decades ago and essentially spells out a process by which sellers of aborted baby body parts can meet certain criteria that allows the sales to be legal. That’s why a Colorado congressman has introduced legislation to totally ban the sales of aborted baby body parts.

An update from The Daily Signal on October 13, 2015:                          

She Worked at Planned Parenthood For 17 Years. Now She Shares Her Story.

Kelsey Harkness @kelseyjharkness / October 13, 2015

After working at Planned Parenthood for more than 17 years, Sue Thayer was let go. Now she’s alleging that the nation’s largest abortion provider “is more concerned about its bottom line than it is about the health and safety of women.”

But the organization’s financial records weren’t Thayer’s only problem with Planned Parenthood.

In an exclusive interview with The Daily Signal, Thayer, who served as the center manager of Planned Parenthood of the Heartland’s Storm Lake, Iowa, clinic, discusses in detail what she calls “webcam abortions” and why she took issue with the controversial practice.

But the organization’s financial records weren’t Thayer’s only problem with Planned Parenthood.

In an exclusive interview with The Daily Signal, Thayer, who served as the center manager of Planned Parenthood of the Heartland’s Storm Lake, Iowa, clinic, discusses in detail what she calls “webcam abortions” and why she took issue with the controversial practice.

“Webcam abortions,” technically known as telemedical abortions, use specialized technology and equipment to allow women to terminate a pregnancy by communicating with a doctor using some type of video-conferencing equipment. Critics say it leaves patients undersupervised.

 

This June, the Iowa Supreme Court ruled the practice legal, and Planned Parenthood president Cecile Richards praised that decision.

“This ruling is a big victory for Iowa women,” she said, adding, “This unanimous ruling says that a state cannot single out abortion with a different set of rules that don’t apply to any other health care procedure, and that a state cannot prevent women from accessing safe, legal abortion.”

To hear more about the practice and why Thayer thinks it’s dangerous, watch her interview above.

Pro-aborts will do anything for money – Part 12

An update from Life News on September 15, 2015:                                                                                                                                                 

10th Video Catches Planned Parenthood: We Sell “Fresh” Aborted Baby Eyes, Hearts and “Gonads”

NATIONAL   STEVEN ERTELT   SEP 15, 2015   |   8:44AM    WASHINGTON, DC

The organization that has released nine videos exposing the scandal of Planned Parenthood selling aborted babies and their body parts has released a new undercover video today with another shocking discovery. This latest video catches the nation’s biggest abortion business selling specific body parts — including the heart, eyes and “gonads” of unborn babies.The video also shows the shocking ways in which Planned Parenthood officials admit that they are breaking federal law by selling aborted baby body parts for profit.

The 10th video by The Center for Medical Progress features several top-level Planned Parenthood executives discussing the organization’s secretive practices around aborted fetal parts harvesting. The video includes comments from Deborah VanDerhei, the National Director of the organization’s Consortium of Abortion Providers, describing the harvesting of fetal body parts as “donation for remuneration.”

The video highlights conversations with Dr. Carolyn Westhoff, Senior Medical Advisor for PPFA; Dr. Vanessa Cullins, Vice President for External Medical Affairs for PPFA; and Deborah VanDerhei, National Director for the Consortium of Abortion Providers (CAPS) at PPFA.

“We’ve just been working with people who want particular tissues, like, you know, they want cardiac, or they want eyes, or they want neural,” says Dr. Westhoff to a prospective fetal organ buyer. “Certainly, everything we provide–oh, gonads! Oh my God, gonads. Everything we provide is fresh.” Westhoff continues, “Obviously, we would have the potential for a huge P.R. issue in doing this,” before offering to introduce the buyers to “national office abortion people” from Planned Parenthood.

Deborah VanDerhei is the National Director for CAPS, an influential committee within Planned Parenthood that drives abortion policy across the organization. VanDerhei refers to payments for fetal tissue as “donation for remuneration,” which carries the connotation of financial reward or benefit without regard for actual expenses. VanDerhei explains, “I have been talking to the executive director of the National Abortion Federation, we’re trying to figure this out as an industry, about how we’re going to manage remuneration, because the headlines would be a disaster.”

“Is this really worth getting–I don’t even know what in general, what a specimen generally brings in?” VanDerhei later asks a prospective buyer. When she is told $100 per specimen, she remarks, “But we have independent colleagues who generate a fair amount of income doing this.” VanDerhei suggests that Planned Parenthood goes to great lengths to avoid leaving a paper trail about their fetal tissue activity: “It’s an issue that you might imagine we’re not really that comfortable talking about on email.”

In a conversation recorded between VanDerhei and Vanessa Russo, Compliance Program Administrator for Planned Parenthood Keystone in Pennsylvania, Russo argues, “A company like this that wants to give our organization money for the tissue–I think that that’s a valid exchange, and that that’s okay.” VanDerhei nods her head up and down and affirms, “Mhm.”

The sale or purchase of human fetal tissue is a federal felony punishable by up to 10 years in prison or a fine of up to $500,000 (42 U.S.C. 289g-2).

Vanessa Cullins, the Vice President of External Medical Affairs, seems fully aware of the criminal exposure that fetal body parts sales present to Planned Parenthood: “This is important. This could destroy your organization and us, if we don’t time those conversations correctly,” she tells a prospective buyer.

Planned Parenthood is the largest abortion provider in the country, responsible for 327,000 abortions every year, and receives $528 million in taxpayer money each year.

“From email black-outs to contorted oxymorons like ‘donation for remuneration,’ the lengths to which Planned Parenthood leadership will go to cover-up their illegal sale of aborted baby parts are nothing less than the desperation of a guilty conscience,” notes David Daleiden of the Center for Medical Progress.

Daleiden continues: “Planned Parenthood CEO Cecile Richards openly admits they receive ‘$60 per tissue specimen,’ and their contracts with StemExpress offer payments per fetus ‘determined in the clinic to be usable.’ Planned Parenthood runs their abortion and baby parts business in open disregard for the law and should be prosecuted immediately. Their taxpayer funding should be reassigned to Federally Qualified Health Centers, which provide more and comprehensive health services at locations outnumbering Planned Parenthood 20 to 1.”

This week, the House of Representatives will vote for a bill to freeze Planned Parenthood funding. Rep. Diane Black, a Tennessee Republican who is the pro-life lawmaker sponsoring the legislation and a nurse for more than 40 years, thanked Speaker John Boehner and Republican leaders in the House for putting together next week’s vote.

Black has written legislation that would freeze Planned Parenthood funding for one year while Congress conducts an investigation into its sales of aborted babies. The House vote would follow one the Senate had weeks ago, which saw Senate Democrats filibuster and block legislation to revoke $550 million in taxpayer fundingThe Senate is expected to vote soon on a second attempt to de-fund Planned Parenthood.

A first hearing has exposed how Planned Parenthood is likely breaking multiple federal laws to sell aborted baby body parts. Next week, a second Congressional hearing into the Planned Parenthood abortion business will take place after 10 videos have exposed how the abortion company sells aborted babies and their body parts for research.

The expose’ videos catching Planned Parenthood officials selling the body parts of aborted babies have shocked the nation. Here is a list of all nine:

  • In the first video: Dr. Deborah Nucatola of Planned Parenthood commented on baby-crushing: “We’ve been very good at getting heart, lung, liver, because we know that, so I’m not gonna crush that part, I’m gonna basically crush below, I’m gonna crush above, and I’m gonna see if I can get it all intact.”

Congress has expanded its investigation into the Planned Parenthood abortion business and five states have revoked taxpayer funding for Planned Parenthood’s abortion business, including UtahArkansasAlabamaNew Hampshire and Louisiana and Iowa’s governor has ordered a review of Planned Parenthood funding.

Gianna Jessen survived an abortion and now she is testifying before Congress

An update from Life News on September 9, 2015:                                                                                                                                               

Abortion Survivor: How Many Lamborghinis Did Planned Parenthood Buy After Selling Aborted Babies?

NATIONAL   STEVEN ERTELT   SEP 9, 2015   |   12:31PM    WASHINGTON, DC

Abortion survivor Gianna Jessen led off a Congressional hearing today looking into evidence that the Planned Parenthood abortion business sells aborted babies and their body parts. During the hearing, Jessen shared her story of surviving a saline abortion.

This is the first hearing in Congress’ multi-committee investigation of the abortion business after a series of nine videos exposed how it is potentially illegally selling aborted babies and profiting from the sales.

During her testimony, Jessen wondered how many Lamborghinis the top staff of the abortion business have purchased after selling aborted babies. The question hearkened back to one of the expose videos showing Mary Gatter, the Medical director at Planned Parenthood Pasadena and San Gabriel Valley in Calfiornia, who discusses selling aborted baby body parts with undercover investigators posing as officials with a biotech company that acts as a middleman to sell aborted baby body parts to universities and other places that conduct such research.

Gatter suggests $100 per specimen is not enough and concludes, “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.”

“How many Lamborghini’s were purchased with the blood of innocent children?” Jessen asked.

She continued: “Planned Parenthood is not ashamed of what they have done or continue to do. But we will have to give an account as a nation, before God, for our apathy and for the murder of over 50 million children in the womb. Every time we falter in courage as individuals and fail to confront this evil, I wonder how many lives have been lost in our silence, while we make sure we are lauded among men and do not offend anyone? How many children have died, and been dismembered, and their parts sold, for our ego, our convenience, and our promiscuity?”

Jessen added: “I would ask Planned Parenthood the following questions: If abortion is about women’s rights, then what were mine? You continuously use the argument, “If the baby is disabled, we need to terminate the pregnancy,” as if you can determine the quality of someone’s life. Is my life less valuable due to my Cerebral Palsy? You have failed, in your arrogance and greed, to see one thing: it is often from the weakest among us that we learn wisdom – something sorely lacking in our nation today. And it is both our folly and our shame that blinds us to the beauty of adversity. Planned Parenthood uses deception, the manipulation of language and slogans, such as “a woman’s right to choose,” to achieve their monetary aims.”

“Planned Parenthood receives $500 million dollars of taxpayer money a year, to primarily destroy and dismember babies. Do not tell me these are not children,” she said.

Jessen shared her very moving and compelling story of surviving an abortion:

My biological mother was seven and a half months pregnant when she went to Planned Parenthood, who advised her to have a late-term saline abortion. This method of abortion burns the baby inside and out, blinding and suffocating the child, who is then born dead, usually within 24 hours.

Instead of dying, after 18 hours of being burned in my mother’s womb, I was delivered alive in an abortion clinic in Los Angeles on April the 6th, 1977. (See photo of my medical records.) My medical records state: “Born alive during saline abortion” at 6 am. Thankfully, the abortionist was not at work yet. Had he been there, he would have ended my life with strangulation, suffocation, or leaving me there to die. Instead, a nurse called an ambulance, and I was rushed to a hospital. Doctors did not expect me to live.

I did. I was later diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy, which was caused by a lack of oxygen to my brain while surviving the abortion. I was never supposed to hold my head up or walk. I do. And Cerebral Palsy is a great gift to me. I was eventually placed in foster care and later adopted. I forgive my biological mother. Within the first year after my birth , I was used as an expert witness in a case where an abortionist had been caught strangling a child to death after being born alive.

Meanwhile, the House of Representatives is planning a vote on legislation in a couple weeks that would de-fund the Planned Parenthood abortion business. The two votes would follow one the Senate had weeks ago, which saw Senate Democrats filibuster and block legislation to revoke $550 million in taxpayer fundingThe Senate is expected to vote soon on a second attempt to de-fund Planned Parenthood.

The Center for Medical Progress recently released its most recent video — the 9th in its series of videos catching the Planned Parenthood abortion business selling aborted babies and their body parts. This latest video catches a Planned Parenthood medical director discussing how the abortion company sells fully intact aborted babies — including one who “just fell out” of the womb.

The Center for Medical Progress also released the full, uncut video of the conversation between undercover investigators form CMP and top officials with StemExpress, which buys aborted babies and their body parts from Planned Parenthood. The full footage is of a shorter video that summarized the meetings earlier this week.

In Congress, two committees in the House of Representatives have already launched investigations of Planned Parenthood. One committee is looking into whether or not the abortion business is breaking federal law by altering abortion procedures to better obtain aborted baby body parts for sale. Another committee, among other things, is investigating the Obama administration and whether there is any connection between it and the abortion giant.

The House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform wants to know if the Obama administration, via the Department of Health and Human Services, provided any federal grants to Planned Parenthood that ultimately went to pay for the sales of aborted baby body parts and if they were used by Planned Parenthood to “support transactions involving fetal tissue.”

The expose’ videos catching Planned Parenthood officials selling the body parts of aborted babies have shocked the nation. Here is a list of all nine:

  • In the first video: Dr. Deborah Nucatola of Planned Parenthood commented on baby-crushing: “We’ve been very good at getting heart, lung, liver, because we know that, so I’m not gonna crush that part, I’m gonna basically crush below, I’m gonna crush above, and I’m gonna see if I can get it all intact.”
