Money Goes In, Aborted Baby Parts Go Out: Planned Parenthood’s Illegal Secret Human Tissue Trade

Human Capital-smbanner

Los Angeles, CA — The results of a bold three-year undercover journalism investigation study, released today, expose a national scandal involving the widespread secret and illegal selling of aborted baby body parts for profit by Planned Parenthood, the nation’s largest abortion supplier.

In addition, evidence reveals that Planned Parenthood’s preferred method of obtaining the intact fetal organs that bring the most profit is the outlawed Partial Birth Abortion method done under ultrasound guidance.

In every step of the body parts trade, public money is involved.

daleidenProject leader for this in-depth undercover investigation, known as the Human Capital Project, is David Daleiden of the The Center for Medical Progress.

“Planned Parenthood’s criminal conspiracy to make money off of aborted baby parts reaches to the very highest levels of their organization. Elected officials must listen to the public outcry for Planned Parenthood to be held accountable to the law and for our tax dollars to stop underwriting this barbaric abortion business,” stated Daleiden.

Operation Rescue President Troy Newman serves on the Board of Daleiden’s Center for Medical Progress. During this investigation, Newman advised Daleiden, providing consultation services and material support.

“Abortionists use ultrasound like a butcher uses scales to sell meat by the pound for profit,” said Newman.

A video released today shows Dr. Deborah Nucatola, Planned Parenthood Federation of America’s Senior Director of Medical Services, describing how abortion procedures are altered – not for the safety of women – but to get the most marketable body parts, including intact livers, hearts, and heads, which are highly sought by those who procure human body tissue for research.

As head of PPFA’s Medical Services Department, Nucatola has overseen medical practice at all Planned Parenthood locations since 2009. She also trains new Planned Parenthood abortion doctors and performs abortions herself at Planned Parenthood Los Angeles up to 24 weeks.

Planned Parenthood CEO Cecile Richards is also seen in the video praising Nucatola’s work to facilitate connections for fetal tissue collection.

Evidence further shows that Planned Parenthood has gone to great lengths to keep the public from ever knowing about their illicit human body-parts trade, understanding that if news were to leak, it could spell doom for the abortion giant.

The sale or purchase of human fetal tissue a federal felony punishable by up to 10 years in prison and a fine of up to $500,000 (42 U.S.C. 289g-2).

Dead Abortion Patient Still Waits for Justice Three Years Later

By Cheryl Sullenger

Chicago, IL — Tonya Reaves has been dead for three years. As the anniversary of the passing of this beautiful 24-year old African-American approaches on July 20, 2012, it seemed appropriate to link to a report we published last year based on the sworn deposition of Mandy Gittler, who conducted Reaves’ fatal 16-week abortion at a Planned Parenthood facility in Chicago, Illinois.

The deposition was taken as part of a wrongful death lawsuit filed by family representatives on behalf of Reaves’ only surviving son. After Gittler’s incriminating statement in which there were many inconsistencies and much blame-shifting, Planned Parenthood settled with the family for the sum of $1.5 million, none of which came from Gittler’s pocket.

Today, Gittler continues the practice of aborting innocent babies, but with some changes. It appears she has moved on from the Planned Parenthood clinic that was the scene of the Reaves tragedy. She also shut down her private Chicago-area abortion business last fall.

Gittler has drifted to various abortion clinics, working for a brief period at a seedy abortion mill in Peoria, Illinois, before making a new home at Planned Parenthood’s abortion facility Kalamazoo, Michigan, where women have never heard of her troubled past.

Reaves death continues, as it should to haunt Gittler, but only in small ways. Operation Rescue discovered that Gittler lied about her part in the Reaves family lawsuit when applying for new medical licenses in Indiana and Michigan. Complaints were filed with state medical boards and those investigations are ongoing.

In the last year a young motherless Chicago area boy, who likely has no first-hand memory of his momma, celebrated his fourth birthday. Meanwhile, Tonya Reaves lies in her grave still waiting for justice.

Brigham’s Transfer Ownership for 7 Abortion Clinics Was A Sham, Says New Jersey Attorney General’s Office


UPDATE July 6, 2015: Operation Rescue just obtained the Administrative Complaint against Kaji from the New Jersey Board of Physicians seeking to ban him from operating as medical director or owner at Brigham’s chain of New Jersey abortion clinics and seeking license revocation. Read the Administrative Complaint against Kaji.

Trenton, NJ – A complaint filed by the New Jersey Attorney General’s office alleges that the notorious abortionist Steven Chase Brigham continues to illegally operate seven abortion facilities in New Jersey, having never actually transferred ownership to his long-time associate, abortionist Vikram H. Kaji.

A complaint was filed by the Attorney General’s office on June 16, 2015. It charged Kaji with fraud for claiming he had taken over ownership of Brigham’s New Jersey abortion businesses after Brigham’s medical license was revoked last year for operating an illegal bi-state late-term abortion scheme that resulted in a horrifically botched abortion on an 18-year old girl.

brigham-kajiWithout a medical license, Brigham is prohibited from maintaining ownership in any medical facility in New Jersey. However, when an investigator from the Division of Consumer Affairs showed up at the abortion clinic in Hamilton unannounced, on April 22, Kaji denied he owned the abortion clinic chain. Kaji was later questioned.

A report on explains what happened:

During a closed-door hearing of a committee of the board on May 5, Kaji “repeatedly testified under oath that he was not the owner,” according to the complaint filed June 16 by Deputy Attorney General Bindi Merchant.

“He expressly testified that ‘there is no other person around, (Brigham’s) the only one who runs the show,” according to the complaint obtained by NJ Advance Media.

Kaji’s “ownership of American Healthcare Services is a sham transfer and thus constitutes the use or employment of dishonesty, deception, misrepresentation, false promise or false pretense,” according to the complaint, which asked the board to suspend or revoke his medical license.

Operation Rescue had submitted a letter of complaint to Deputy Attorney General Warhaftig on April 17 detailing and documenting concerns that Brigham never actually transferred ownership to Kaji. The letter pointed out that Brigham had a pattern of concealing ownership in his clinics.

“Because Brigham continues to illegally operate his chain of abortion clinics in New Jersey, they should all be immediately shut down and Brigham should be criminally charged,” said Operation Rescue President Troy Newman. “Brigham has made a career of deceiving the public and authorities in several states about his shoddy abortion businesses. It’s time for New Jersey authorities to see through this flim-flam man and end his notorious criminal enterprise with a long period of incarceration.”

The report further noted that Consumer Affairs spokesman Neal Buccino would not confirm or deny whether a new case against Brigham had been opened.

Operation Rescue also complained publicly that any transfer to Kaji should be nullified since he was an admitted sex abuser and had a long history of Board discipline.

Kaji was convicted by the New Jersey Board of Medical Examiners in 1993 for having improper sexual contact with three patients. Kaji reportedly had sex with one young girl at his office during business hours and later plied her with drugs. He knew his victim was vulnerable to his advances because she had been a depressed victim of child sex abuse with a history of psychiatric hospitalization. Kaji admitted that he had made an error in moral judgment.

Kaji was also accused of giving improper breast and rectal exams to two other women.

The NJBME placed Kaji on a 1-year suspension and fined him $5,000 and ordered him to undergo psychological counseling.

Kaji also recently suffered a stroke that impaired his memory and vision, raising questions about his ability to continue practicing.

“We appreciate the work of the Attorney General’s office in seeing this case through. Brigham and Kaji are among the worst abortionists in America and their pattern of deception shows they cannot be trusted to follow the law, much less with the lives of women,” said Newman.

Brigham’s abortion empire consists of at least 17 abortion facilities located in New Jersey, Virginia, Delaware — and perhaps secretly elsewhere — but only Brigham’s New Jersey abortion businesses are affected. Those New Jersey abortion facilities that operate under Brigham’s American Women’s Services banner are located in Elizabeth, Mt. Laurel, Phillipsburg, Toms River, Hamilton, Woodbridge and Voorhees.
