Planned Parenthood videotapes may show evidence of tissue-harvesting from babies born alive

July 31, 2015

The head of the investigative team whose videotapes have exposed the sale of fetal tissues now says that Planned Parenthood may have been involved in harvesting organs from babies who were born alive.

David Daleiden of the Center for Medical Progress told a CNN interviewer that his group had videotaped a conversation with the top executive of Stem Express, a company that supplies medical tissues for research, and “they admitted that they sometimes sometimes get fully intact fetuses shipped to their laboratory from the abortion clinics they work with, and that could be prima facie evidence of born alive infants.”

Earlier this week, Stem Express asked a California court to block the release of any undercover videos featuring executives of the firm. Daleiden told CNN that he is convinced the damaging videotape, with the discussion of fully intact fetuses, is the reason for their legal action—that “they’re trying to suppress that videotape and they’re very scared of it.”

The court order barring release of videotapes involving Stem Express officials is valid until August 19, when the court will have a hearing on the merits of the unusual call for a permanent order to forbid use of the videotapes.

    And why shouldn't PPH harvest from babies born alive? This organization can't even say the word "baby". They are truly the butchers we believe them to be.
