HOUSTON, Tex. — An anti-abortion group released another controversial online video Tuesday (Aug. 4) of Planned Parenthood staff members discussing the alleged sale of aborted fetal body parts.
The latest footage was captured on April 9, 2015.
The video features Director of Research for Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast Melissa Farrell talking to two actors posing as tissue buyers.
In the video, Farrell says the organization – including the doctors – has been doing research for “many many many years.” She says that when it comes to adjusting the abortion for specific organ and tissue needs, they can “get creative about when and where, and under what conditions can we interject something that is specific to the tissue procurement needs.”
Farrell also says, “We [Planned Parenthood] are able to obtain intact fetal cadavers, the we can make it part of the budget, that any dissections are this, and splitting these specimens into different shipments is this. I mean, it’s all just a matter of line items.”
At one point in the heavily edited video, the buyers are having a meal with Farrell when they begin to talk about “financial gain.”
The end of the video shows extremely disturbing images of a Planned Parenthood staff member showcasing the remains of fetal body parts to the “tissue buyers.”
“This patient was at, like, 18 weeks, I think,” one medical staffer says.
Warning: Images in this video are extremely graphic and may be disturbing.
