When I was growing up in New York, pretty regularly we’d hear about a factory truck packed with retail merchandise getting hijacked. Essentially what would happen is a low-level mob guy would stick a gun in the driver’s face when he stopped at a traffic light, and order him out of the truck. Bada-boom.
That’s how when someone considered buying a new VCR (you remember them, right?) from a friend, flea market, or street vendor, they’d ask why the price was 60% off what the same model was going for in the big box stores.
In hushed tones, the seller would tell them “it fell off the back of a truck…”
There’s a hideous new video out there now which shows a Planned Parenthood executive caught on hidden camera in a Los Angeles restaurant, nonchalantly explaining how Planned Parenthood sells body parts from aborted babies.
The undercover video was supposedly filmed by the Center for Medical Progress, an advocacy group that reports on medical ethics, in July of 2014. Two actors posing as representatives of a biologics company had this discussion over lunch with Deborah Nucatola, Planned Parenthood’s senior director of medical services.
The verbiage is ghastly, as Nucatola details – over food, no less – how abortionists harvest organs from aborted babies based on the “parts” needed.
Needed by whom? one may be wondering.
Well, don’t tell me you hadn’t suspected this for a long time, because I certainly did. This is just the first documented proof to which we’re being exposed.
If you follow the money, as so many assert, eventually it leads to the answer. Here is the answer to why legalized abortion became a cottage industry in America. It wasn’t just the market demand from all those careless couples and unwed teens who found themselves pregnant.
These baby parts – fetal tissue, as it is known in the lab – are used by biomedical research laboratories all over the world. The “parts” they require are predicated upon what sort of research they happen to be doing. As someone who worked for many years in the field (although not with fetal tissue), I can tell you that there are literally hundreds of research areas, potentially involving thousands upon thousands of facilities, that might find use for some type of fetal tissue.
Once it’s delivered to the lab by a reputable vendor, it’s just another supply item, like the cold-stored blood or plasma. No one asks where or how the vendor acquired it.
But how did the vendor acquire it?
Well, it fell of the back of a truck, of course…
Some may remember the following controversial news items; each dominated their news cycle for a time…
On January 22, 1993, President Clinton issued a directive to the Secretary of Health and Human Services ending a five-year moratorium on Federal funding of transplantation research that uses human fetal tissue derived from induced abortions… NIH published interim guidelines for research involving human fetal tissue transplantation. These guidelines were… designed to ensure that Federal funding of human fetal tissue transplantation research would not encourage the choice of abortion.

Then, there was this…
“On August 9th, 2001, President George W. Bush announced that federal funds may be awarded for research using human embryonic stem cells if the following criteria are met:
- The derivation process (which begins with the destruction of the embryo) was initiated prior to 9:00 P.M. EDT on August 9, 2001.
- The stem cells must have been derived from an embryo that was created for reproductive purposes and was no longer needed.
- Informed consent must have been obtained for the donation of the embryo and that donation must not have involved financial inducements.”
“President Barack Obama said Monday he is allowing federal taxpayer dollars to fund significantly broader research on embryonic stem cells because ‘medical miracles do not happen simply by accident,’ and promised his administration would make up for the ground lost under his predecessor.”

There are laws, rules, and regulations galore governing what one can and cannot theoretically do with fetuses, aborted babies, and the attendant biological materials. Since the HIV virus reared its ugly head, the strictest guidelines were implemented for the disposal of all biological materials. Unfortunately, at least at the federal level, this is overseen by the same people who approve dangerous pharmaceuticals for their pals in the pharma industry every year, only to have them withdrawn from the market when people start dropping dead.
We all remember what abortion provider Kermit Gosnell got away with for decades in his Philadelphia house of horrors. Not only did he murder babies that had been delivered alive outright, but his clinic’s practices were literally a threat to public health.
So, it’s the tissue disposal procedures that left the wiggle room needed to serve the baby parts market…
It’s the end of the day at your friendly neighborhood abortion provider clinic. A driver from one of these biologics companies shows up with a red biohazard bin. A clinic staff member opens their red biohazard bin, pulls out some red biohazard bags, and transfers them to the driver’s bin. The driver sticks the bin in the back of the truck, and off they go. Back at the biologics company, the baby parts are cut down according to market demands and sold off to biotech companies. Bada-boom.
It’s a dirty little secret, but I imagine it’s a whopping big industry. I expect that very shortly, some intrepid journalist will come out with real numbers representing just how much money changes hands between abortion providers, biologic companies, and laboratories on an annual basis.
By the way: Planned Parenthood, which gets the most flak for providing “women’s reproductive health services,” is by no means the only abortion provider in the United States…
