Planned Parenthood abortionist speaks of harvesting fetal heads in latest undercover video

October 27, 2015

In a new undercover video from the Center for Medical Progress (CMP), a Planned Parenthood abortionist speaks about her efforts to harvest intact heads from unborn babies.

In the 11th video of the shocking CMP series, Dr. Amna Dermish, who performs abortions for Planned Parenthood in Austin, Texas, describes how she works to harvest fetal brains. “My aim is usually to get the specimens out pretty intact,” she says.

Dr. Dermish reveals that she sometimes changes her abortion technique in order to harvest organs. She says that harvesting an intact brain is difficult, but “something to strive for.”

The latest CMP video comes as state leaders in Texas are moving to block funding for Planned Parenthood. Governor Greg Abbott has said that the state now has “hard evidence” that Planned Parenthood has violated state and federal law in harvesting fetal organs for sale.

    Since most members of congress have no desire for change and do not have the necessary backbone to force change; there will be much hand waving and smoke. However, when the smoke clears it will be bloody business as usual.
