Though a couple of tame, pro-abort judges have been enlisted to try to combat the release of the videos, a new video by Cemter for Medical Progress landed today.
It is horrific as it is obvious that Planned Parenthood does used parts and organs from aborted babies as a profit center in their operations.
Asked specifically if this means Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast can change abortion procedures to supply intact fetal specimens, Farrell affirms, “Some of our doctors in the past have projects and they’re collecting the specimens, so they do it in a way that they get the best specimens, so I know it can happen.“
The investigators ask Farrell how she will frame a contract in which they pay a higher price for higher quality fetal body parts, and she replies, “We can work it out in the context of–obviously, the procedure itself is more complicated,” suggesting that “without having you cover the procedural cost” and paying for the abortion, the higher specimen price could be framed as “additional time, cost, administrative burden.”
Farrell finally summarizes her affiliate’s approach to fetal tissue payments: “If we alter our process, and we are able to obtain intact fetal cadavers, we can make it part of the budget that any dissections are this, and splitting the specimens into different shipments is this. It’s all just a matter of line items.”
As bad as the trafficking in human organs and tissue is. As reprehensible as it is to put women an medical risk by changing the abortion procedure in order to maximize the dollar value of the dead baby. What really strikes one over the course of the videos is the utter callousness of the people involved. The total lack of basic humanity that the alleged medical professionals in this horrible practice exhibit.
We saw Deborah Nucatola calmly talking about revenue based on dead babies who ordering wine and chowing down on a nice, green salad. If you go the 9:45 in today’s video you can hear the staff laughing, that’s right laughing, about how hard their day has been and how they have plenty of dead babies in the freezer:
Back in 1963, Hannah Arendt covered the trial of Adolph Eichmann in Jerusalem and wrote a book called Eichmann in Jerusalem: A Report on the Banality of Evil. In it she noted that Eichmann wasn’t necessarily motivated by ideology but rather by self-interest, i.e. personal advancement and from that concluded (broadly) that even ordinary people can become involved in horrendous crimes, not because they are evil but simply because they lack the empathy for their victims.
What one sees in these videos is not unlike what one saw in the series of war crimes trials visited upon the German military and political classes after World War II. There is a top tier of ideologues who are carrying out an agenda. They could be questioned on the morality of their actions and convince any polygraph examiner in the world that they truly believe they are on the side of the angels. There are a handful of truly malevolent individuals, in the case of abortion this would be the doctors who carry out the procedure. But most of these people, oddly enough nearly all in the video are women, just put their conscience in a lock box, stuff dead babies in the cooler, and go home and fix dinner. That casual cruelty is what makes this series of videos so powerful.
