Holly O’Donnell is now pro-life and is now telling the truth about how Planned Parenthood sells aborted babies. But it wasn’t always that way.
In a new undercover video — the third to catch Planned Parenthood doctors selling the body parts of aborted babies — O’Donell talks about the sick ways in which the nation’s biggest abortion business exploits unborn children even after killing them in abortions.
O’Donnell, a licensed phlebotomist, unsuspectingly took a job as a “procurement technician” at the fetal tissue company and biotech start-up StemExpress in late 2012. That’s the company that acts as a middleman and purchases the body parts of aborted babies from Planned Parenthood to sell to research universities and other places.
“I thought I was going to be just drawing blood, not procuring tissue from aborted fetuses,” says O’Donnell, who fainted in shock on her first day of work in a Planned Parenthood clinic when suddenly asked to dissect a freshly-aborted fetus during her on-the-job training.
For six months, O’Donnell’s job was to identify pregnant women at Planned Parenthood who met criteria for fetal tissue orders and to harvest the fetal body parts after their abortions.
O’Donnell describes the financial benefit Planned Parenthood received from StemExpress: “For whatever we could procure, they would get a certain percentage. The main nurse was always trying to make sure we got our specimens. No one else really cared, but the main nurse did because she knew that Planned Parenthood was getting compensated.”
In the video, O’Donnell describes her work and the profit motive behind Planned Parenthood’s sale of aborted babies.
O’Donnell also describes the emotional toll her work took on her and others. At one point O’Donnell indicates that Planned Parenthood financially exploits many women who do not even really want abortions.
The video includes a disturbing scene from Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountians’s Denver, Colorado, abortion facility organ procurement room. There, Savita Ginde, who serves as Vice President and Medical Director for PPRM, identified several organs from one aborted baby’s remains that could have netted Planned Parenthood $200 to $300.
This prompted Ginde, who was exploring entering into a contract with an organ procurement company, to voice her preference for being paid by the organ over flat-rate compensation.
“I think the ‘per item’ thing works a little better just because we can see how much we can get out of it,” Ginde said.
Other scenes show footage of discussions with Planned Parenthood Pacific Southwest’s Medical Director Katherine Sheehan, and the now familiar faces of Planned Parenthood abortionists Mary Gatter and Deborah Nucatola discussing the financial benefit derived from selling aborted baby organs.
“There is no doubt, based on evidence in this video, that Planned Parenthood financially profits from the illegal sale of aborted baby body parts. When Planned Parenthood’s head, Cecile Richards, denies this, she is brazenly attempting to deceive the American people,” said Troy Newman, President of Operation Rescue.
Newman also serves on the Board of the Center for Medical Progress and advised Daleiden throughout his three-year undercover journalistic study.
He told LifeNews: “We need to immediately defund Planned Parenthood and hold them criminally accountable for their horrific conduct that clearly runs afoul of the law and violates every sense of human decency.”
