Planned Parenthood executives joked about decapitated fetuses, admitted to altering abortion procedures to preserve fetal organs and said clinics have a financial incentive to sell human tissue in a new undercover video released Thursday.
The three-minute video was recorded at an annual National Abortion Federation meeting by pro-life investigators with the Center for Medical Progress. The advocacy group said it's just a preview of never-before-seen content that has been sealed for almost two years due to legal fights.
In the video, Deborah Nucatola, senior director of medical services at the Planned Parenthood Federation of America, admits to altering abortion procedures to preserve fetal organs.
"You know, sometimes she'll tell me she wants brain, and we'll, you know, leave the calvarium till last, and then try to basically take it or, actually, you know, catch everything, and even keep it separate from the rest of the tissue so it doesn't get lost," Ms. Nucatola says.
Also, Deb VanDerhei, national director of Planned Parenthood's Consortium of Abortion Providers, admits that some clinics are motivated to sell fetal tissue for profit.
