Another felony at Planned Parenthood caught on camera
Monday, July 20, 2015 - By Debi Vinnedge

As news broke last week with the video showing Planned Parenthood’s intended sale of aborted baby organs, the world was suddenly awakened from complacency to utter shock and disbelief. But another fact caught on camera garnered little to no public attention: the alteration of the timing and method of an abortion whenever the baby would be used for research—or vaccine production.

“It’s a felony action punishable under federal law,” noted Children of God for Life’s executive director, Debi Vinnedge, who cited Section 42 of the US Code of Federal Regulations which states that the attending physician must sign a statement saying that “no alteration of the timing, method, or procedures used to terminate the pregnancy was made solely for the purposes of obtaining the tissue.” Vinnedge continued, “What most people do not know is that this has been going on secretly for decades without any legal consequences.”

Caught on camera, Deborah Nucatola, Planned Parenthood’s senior director of medical services, described the gruesome methods used to ensure that the “specimens” are top quality and fully intact: “We’ve been very good at getting heart, lung, liver because we know . . . I’m not going to 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. . . . And for that reason, most providers will do this case under ultrasound guidance, so they’ll know where they’re putting their forceps.”

Nucatola also cavalierly discussed fetal brain procurement: “And with the calvarium in general, some people will actually try to change the presentation so that it’s not vertex. So if you do it starting from the breech presentation, there’s dilation that happens as the case goes on, and often, the last step, you can evacuate an intact calvarium at the end.”

For the past 15 years Children of God for Life has reported in numerous articles and public seminars on just some of the methods Planned Parenthood uses when aborted babies are used for vaccine and medical research. For example, in one of its DVDs, Vinnedge cites the late Dr. Bernard Nathanson who quotes from the writings of Dr. Peter McCullagh, immunologist, in his book The Fetus As Transplant Donor: Scientific, Social, and Ethical Perspectives. Dr. Nathanson noted:

Now what they were doing to ensure the organs would be intact was what is called prostaglandin abortions. They would inject a substance into the womb. The woman would then go into mini-labor and pass the baby. 50 percent of the time, the baby would be born alive, but that didn’t stop them. They would just simply open up the abdomen of the baby with no anesthesia, and take out the liver and kidneys, etc. 

And according to the late Fr. Paul Marx, of Human Life International, Dr. Ian Donald described the experiments he had personally witnessed at the Karolinska Institute where the tissues for vaccine research were procured: “Experiments were being performed on near-term alive aborted babies who were not even afforded the mercy of anesthetic as they writhed and cried in agony, and when their usefulness had expired, they were executed and discarded as garbage.”

Vinnedge has tried to expose the truth on vaccine research for years, and despite the mountain of evidence, some have tried to placate the public by stating “it was only one or two abortions” or that “the abortions were not done with the intention of creating vaccines.” But in fact, over 80 abortions were performed before perfecting Merck’s rubella vaccine. And according to Dr. C. Ward Kischer, one of the nation’s leading authorities on human embryology, the abortion must be pre-arranged with researchers available to immediately preserve the tissue. “In order to sustain 95 percent of the cells, the live tissue would need to be preserved within five minutes of the abortion,” stated Dr. Kischer. “Within an hour the specimens would be useless.” 

And lest one thinks this was confined to abortions overseas, US scientists recorded using aborted babies for decades in polio research under the 1922 US Model Eugenics Sterilization Law which required the forcible sterilization of those deemed unfit to breed. These included the mentally impaired, epileptics, or the “feeble-minded” (i.e., unwed mothers). In many cases, their pregnancy was also forcibly terminated.

In just one of several research documents published by those procuring fetal organs for polio research, Vinnedge discovered:

It was obtained under sterile precautions at the time of abdominal hysterotomy. . . . Embryos of between 12 and 18 weeks gestation have been utilized. Rarely tissues were obtained from stillborn fetuses, or from premature infants at autopsy. . . . Whenever possible the embryo was removed from the amniotic sac under sterile precautions, transferred to a sterile towel and kept at 5c until dissected.

Abdominal hysterotomy is a type of C-section where the baby is surgically removed intact. According to the Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology, “It is only done in special circumstances such as when sterilization is required in addition to the termination of pregnancy, as in the case of cardiac disease, diabetes, TB, or mental disease. [emphasis added] Otherwise it is employed after the second trimester.”

Abdominal hysterotomy, as already noted, is just one of many methods that could be used in obtaining intact fetal remains. In fact, Dr. Gonzalo Herranz, professor of histology and general embryology at the University of Navarra, Spain, stated that: “To obtain embryo cells for culture, a programmed abortion must be adopted, choosing the age of the embryo and dissecting it while still alive to remove tissues to be placed in culture media.” 

“Laws were put into place to stop this abominable action,” Vinnedge said. “And now Planned Parenthood has given the world the visual proof of just what it has been up to.” 

Meanwhile the pharmaceutical industry quietly rakes in billions of dollars in complete denial that it has done anything wrong or needs to do anything differently in the future. But the question remains: What gives anyone the right to slaughter another human being and then make a useful profit from the remains?

Clearly Nucatola did not admit to Planned Parenthood doing most of the gruesome procedures described here. However, if they are allowed to continue the violations of law they have openly admitted to, how many more atrocities will continue at Planned Parenthood centers across America? Stopping Planned Parenthood’s violations now is a critical first step to restoring sanity to our nation.
