Five Takeaways from the Latest Planned Parenthood Baby Parts Video

By Cheryl Sullenger

Washington, DC – The Center for Medical Progress has released this morning a new summary video along with the full unedited version featuring Planned Parenthood abortionist Mary Gatter, who is perhaps best known as the lady who was seen in an earlier video haggling over the price of baby body parts because she wanted a Lamborghini.

Here are five important takeaways from the CMP’s most recent offering.

1. Planned Parenthood executives are stuck with their own words.

An independent forensic analysis by Coalfire Systems, Inc. revealed that there was no audio manipulation in the videos. The Planned Parenthood executives caught on video clearly say what they said. There is no putting the genie back in the bottle, no matter how much Planned Parenthood spends on their aggressive public relations spin masters.

Mary Gatter serves as President of the Medical Director’s Council at Planned Parenthood Federation of America. As such, Gatter’s conversation with the undercover journalists shows that there was approval of the baby body parts trade from the very top of the Planned Parenthood organization. In fact, she admits all but one low volume Planned Parenthood abortion facility in Southern California was already involved in contracts to sell aborted baby remains to Novogenix, a middle-man organ procurement company.

2. Haggling over the price of baby-parts happened repeatedly and was not taken out of context.

The topic that Gatter discusses repeatedly in the most recent video and in the now-famous “I want a Lamborghini” video is that of compensation for tissue and for the use of space at Planned Parenthood. Would she get $50 per specimen? Gatter dismissed that offer as being on the low end of the compensation spectrum. Maybe $75 might be more appropriate for each intact liver, lung, or brain? Yes, conversations like this really happened.

3. The recordings were made at meetings with large numbers of people listening, so there was no “expectation of privacy.”

On March 28, 2017, California Attorney General Xavier Becerra charged pro-life investigative journalists David Daleiden and Sandra Merritt of the Center for Medical Progress with 15 felony counts for allegedly violating California laws that prohibit recording private conversations of individuals without their knowledge. However, the conversations shown in the most recent video — and all others released by the CMP — shows conversations taking place at noisy social gatherings, public restaurants, or other places where there are large numbers of people milling about within earshot. In such public environments, there is no expectation of privacy. This exposes the California criminal charges against the CMP journalists as baseless and politically motivated.

4. The full video was released with a summary video so any accusations of “deception editing” are themselves deceptive.

When Planned Parenthood and the sympathetic main stream media mention the CMP videos, they often describe them as “deceptively edited.” However, the release of the full, unedited videos makes that description “fake news.” The summary videos have been edited for length, but the context of the remarks made by Gatter and others is completely in line with the context shown in the unedited versions. Again, Planned Parenthood’s executives said what they said and meant what they said in these very incriminating conversations.

5. The Senate Judicial Committee and the House Select Investigative Panel on Infant Lives referred Planned Parenthood to the U.S. Department of Justice for further investigation and criminal prosecution.

So often mainstream media reporters attempt to discredit the evidence against Planned Parenthood by noting that 19 states investigated Planned Parenthood and found “no evidence of wrongdoing.”

However, not all Planned Parenthood affiliates were involved in the illegal sale of aborted baby body parts – but some obviously were. An extensive year-long investigation by both the Senate Judicial Committee and the House Select Investigative Panel on Infant Lives uncovered a huge amount of evidence against five Planned Parenthood organizations that is described in great detail in the final investigative reports. [Read the Senate Judiciary Committee’s final report. Read the House Select Panel’s final report.]

Now, it is up to Attorney General Jeff Sessions to order further investigations and criminal prosecutions of those Planned Parenthood officials and affiliates involved in the numerous violations discovered by the Congressional investigations.

“We urge Attorney General Sessions to take immediate action to bring those responsible for breaking the law at Planned Parenthood to justice,” said Operation Rescue President Troy Newman, who also served as a founding board member for the Center for Medical Progress. “We are a nation of laws, and if the laws are not enforced, they become meaningless.”

Newman has been sued along with Daleiden in Federal Court by Planned Parenthood and the National Abortion Federation, Planned Parenthood’s partners in the illicit aborted baby body parts trade. Shockingly, a three-member panel of the ultra-liberal Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals has approved an order that bars Dalieden, Newman, and the CMP from releasing additional footage to law enforcement even if it contains evidence of crimes. All pro-life parties are appealing that unreasonable and illegal ruling.

This has set up a potential Constitutional show-down between the Department of Justice and the extremists on the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals — and even California Attorney General’s office — that will be played out on State and Federal levels.

Will Attorney General Sessions be allowed to enforce the laws against Planned Parenthood and other abortion providers? Or will the rogue Ninth Circuit and the State of California be allowed to continue to subvert the law in order to persecute the whistle-blowers while protecting Planned Parenthood and unrestricted abortion?

It is a drama that is likely destined to be settled by the U.S. Supreme Court in the not-too-distant future.

Delaware Clinic Leased by Stephen Brigham to Close

Wilmington, DE — It took only 15 minutes for the fate of Premier Ob-Gyn to be decided: CLOSED. The abortion clinic in Wilmington, Delaware, is leased by disgraced abortionist and scofflaw, Stephen Brigham, who was on record as the “manager,” renting the property under the auspices of Integrity Family Health. At the short hearing in the Court of Common Pleas in Wilmington, attended by local pro-lifers, David Williams and Moira Sheridan, Judge Susan Ufberg accepted Brigham’s lawyer’s offer to “vacate the property within two weeks” after a brief rehash of his failure to pay 9 months’ rent totaling $37,708.05.

Dr. Adeline Farhi, who, with her husband, owns the condo located in a building with several medical offices in a bustling, trendy area of Wilmington, represented herself at court for the third time in an attempt to rid Brigham and the abortion clinic from the building. She maintains that they moved in approximately three years ago under the auspices of Integrity Family Health, a “group of three female Ob-gyns.” The Trojan horse quickly revealed itself as an abortion clinic with Eric Yahav doing the abortions.

Another disgraced abortionist who frequently worked for Brigham, Yahav was filmed on video in 2014 assaulting his pregnant girlfriend and trying to force her into an abortion.

After his departure, an elderly abortionist, Albert Dworkin, took over at Premier, which was forced to stop performing surgical abortions in 2015 because of a lack of accreditation. Dworkin, who worked with Kermit Gosnell and had his medical license suspended in 2013 as a result of that association, continued until recently to do pill abortions at the location and was seen weekly hobbling from car to front door.

Both Brigham and his attorney, Basil Kollias, looked rumpled and defeated even before the hearing began, as they conferred in a hallway, whispering. It is more than likely that 90 year-old Dworkin’s decision to “retire,” was overheard by Brigham’s lawyer before the hearing, and influenced the decision to vacate the property.

Local pro-lifers kept a steady vigil on abortion days at Premier Ob-Gyn for the past three years, much to the consternation of the other businesses in the building. Their vigilance and persistence in reaching out to the Farhis contributed much to the closing of this clinic. They will, however, be on alert for any of Brigham’s future attempts to open a clinic in Delaware.

Virginia Beach Planned Parenthood Hospitalizes Second Woman in a Month

By Cheryl Sullenger

Virginia Beach, VA — For the second time in the span of a month, the Planned Parenthood abortion facility in Virginia Beach, Virginia, has hospitalized another patient.

On April 7, 2017, an ambulance was called to Planned Parenthood for a 22-year old who was bleeding so severely that she needed emergency hospital care. Pro-life supporters snapped photos as an African American woman was wheeled out the Planned Parenthood’s back door and into an awaiting ambulance.

Emergency radio dispatch communications, obtained by Operation Rescue, verified that the woman was bleeding.

An earlier incident took place at this same Planned Parenthood facility on March 2, 2017, when an unconscious African-American patient was transported to a nearby hospital.

The most recent emergency represents the 15th time that a Planned Parenthood patient has been transported for urgent medical care that the abortion facility was unequipped to provide.

Overall, it is the 26th documented emergency at any abortion facility nationwide so far this year.

The abortionist on duty during the April 7 incident was an unknown female provider who has an aversion to being photographed.

“We are reporting on these abortion-related injuries too often — sometimes several times per week. How many more women must suffer life-threatening injuries or death before America wakes up and realizes that the brutal and violent process of abortion hurts women and kills their babies,” said Troy Newman, President of Operation Rescue. “We urge Congress to move swiftly to defund Planned Parenthood as soon as possible, and stop our tax money from benefiting a business that maims women and destroys the lives of innocent babies.”
