The organ harvesting company featured in many of the undercover videos released by The Center for Medical Progress (CMP) exposing Planned Parenthood’s organ harvesting business has deleted information on their website showing the potential profits from selling aborted babies.
The Weekly Standard reports that StemExpress removed a section that refers to “financial profits” available to facilities that provide “raw materials” to their company. StemExpress uses the term “raw material” to refer to the aborted baby organs and blood they collect from different facilities.
According to the Internet Archive, under Stem Express’s “Partnerships” page, the company indicates that clinics can receive “financial profits” that will “benefit your clinic” and “contributing to the fiscal growth of your clinic.” They also mention that they offer a partner program that “fiscally rewards clinics.”
Now StemExpress has removed all language referring to finances on the Partnership page. View the change below. Before the changes:

As LifeNews previously reported, on August 28th, CMP released the full, uncut video of the conversation between undercover investigators from CMP and top officials with StemExpress. Although the majority of the videos have focused on the Planned Parenthood’s organ harvesting business, StemExpress filed a lawsuit seeking to block some information CMP obtained during its three-year undercover operation.
However, earlier this month, Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Joanne O’Donnell issued a ruling that StemExpress can’t block CMP from releasing their videos. In 2010, abortion doctor Ronald Berman, who now is their medical director, founded the company. Dr. Berman is the abortionist for Planned Parenthood Mar Monte in California.
In the most recent video featuring Stem Express, their CEO Cate Dyer, is shown in a lunch meeting with undercover operatives posing as representatives of a biotech firm. Dyer is laughing about how StemExpress purchases fully intact aborted babies from Planned Parenthood; and about how shippers of the aborted babies would give a warning to lab workers to expect such a baby.
She says, “Oh yeah, if you have intact cases — which we’ve done a lot — we sometimes ship those back to our lab in its entirety.”
“Tell the lab its coming,” she laughs about the intact unborn babies. “You know, open the box and go ‘Oh my God,’” Dyer adds.

On August 14th, StemExpress cut all ties to Planned Parenthood after a sixth video was released featuring their former employee, Holly O’Donnell. O’Donnell is a licensed phlebotomist who unsuspectingly took a job as a “procurement technician” at StemExpress in late 2012.
In the video, she explains how Planned Parenthood worked with Stem Express to procure fetal body parts and pressured patients into “donating” their aborted babies to research. However, she also said that sometimes Planned Parenthood employee’s harvested aborted babies’ organs without their patients consent.
Additionally, O’Donnell said that her supervisors instructed her on how to approach women at Planned Parenthood. They said that procuring organs was not “an option,” it was “a demand.” O’Donnell elaborated, “If there was a higher gestation, and the technicians needed it, there were times when they would just take what they wanted. And these mothers don’t know. And there’s no way they would know.”
In fact, one time O’Donnell’s colleague told her she had to procure organs even if she couldn’t get the woman’s consent. She said, “You have to make sure you get her.” O’Donnell said, “I’m not going to tell a girl to kill her baby just to get money,” and that’s what this company does. Straight up. That’s what [Planned Parenthood] does.”
