In the third installment of secret videos released by the Center for Medical Progress, a former StemExpress employee reveals the gory details of her on-the-job training in the procurement and sell of aborted babies' body parts.
Holly O'Donnell, who was hired as a phlebotomist, passed out on her first day of working at a Planned Parenthood abortion clinic after she was directed to pick up a baby's dismembered leg using tweezers.
"I could feel death and pain shoot up my body," she exclaimed. "I thought I was going to be just drawing blood, not procuring tissue from aborted fetuses." more >>
A pro-life hacktivist group has stolen confidential data from the Planned Parenthood Federation of America, claiming that they will release the information soon.
Known as "3301", the group reportedly hacked the controversial pro-choice organization Sunday evening, stealing among other things names and email addresses for employees.
The U.S. Senate will soon vote on a piece of proposed legislation meant to defund the controversial abortion provider Planned Parenthood.
Republican Senator Rand Paul of Kentucky introduced a bill banning all federal funding of Planned Parenthood last Friday.
Last Thursday Alaska Governor Bill Walker announced that he would use his executive authority to expand Alaska's state Medicaid program under the federal Affordable Care Act. Walker's proposal would extend Medicaid eligibility to all Alaskans earning less than 133 percent of the poverty line. Walker reported that he sent a letter to the Alaska legislature's Budget and Audit Committee, giving legislators the required 45-day notice of his plan. The committee can make recommendations, but Walker said he has legal authority to move forward without the legislature's approval.
This action by Governor Walker will likely prompt both a political and a legal battle. Earlier this summer, the Republican-controlled state legislature rejected Walker's plan to expand Medicaid. They even included language in the state's budget prohibiting any such move. However, opinions from both the Alaska Department of Law and from the legislature's legal counsel declared that the effort to block Walker likely doesn't adhere to the state's constitution.
Additionally, Governor Walker has defended his decision. He stated that previous Alaska governors have used the same authority to accept money from sources outside the state's general fund on seven prior occasions. Also, governors in other states, including Kentucky and Ohio, also have adopted the Medicaid expansion without new legislation. more >>
Abby Johnson, a pro-life activist and former Planned Parenthood director in Texas, says the nation's top abortion business is making a profit of $100 to $200 off each baby's recoverable tissue and organs they sell.
"Shipping only costs a clinic $4 to $10 but they are sometimes charging $100 to $200 for each baby," Johnson told The Christian Post when asked if there's a profit to be made from the harvesting of aborted baby parts.
"They are charging additional fees, but in reality there are no additional fees except for minimal shipping costs," Johnson asserted. "There is definitely money to be made and that's an issue with the current law." more >>
Pro-lifers are anthropomorphizing fetuses and embryos, Dr. Jen Gunter, a former fetus, former embryo and OB/GYN complained in a Thursday op-ed for The New Republic.
In response to an undercover sting operation in which Planned Parenthood officials discuss the sale of aborted baby parts, Gunter wrote, "Calling the tissue 'baby parts' is a calculated attempt to anthropomorphize an embryo or fetus."
In the first video, Deborah Nucatola, an abortionist and Planned Parenthood's senior director of medical services, says abortionists are "very good and getting heart, lung, liver," and describes how she adjusts her abortion procedures to get intact organs, which have value to medical researchers because they are human organs. more >>
