Almost exactly one year ago, the Center for Medical Progress released the first of its shocking undercover videos showing how Planned Parenthood may be illegally profiting off aborted baby parts.
To mark the anniversary, Students for Life of America produced a new short video explaining exactly how the abortion business has gotten away with trafficking aborted babies’ body parts for so long.
In just one minute, SFLA’s new “Tissue Procurement Service Guy” video walks you through the relationship between abortion clinics and tissue procurement companies — comic-book style. The “tissue” procurement guy walks into Planned Parenthood with a briefcase, past the unsuspecting women in the waiting room, and into the manager’s office.
“I’m here to collect the parts,” he says.
“Great! Need anything from us?” the manager replies.
“Nope … We bring it all,” he responds.
He walks into the abortion clinic lab, collects the aborted babies’ parts, and returns to the manager’s office with a stack of money.
“Remember this is a ‘donation’ for your ‘costs’,” he tells the manager before he leaves.
These “donations” and “reimbursements” are how Planned Parenthood appears to be skirting the law and making a profit off aborted babies’ body parts, as the Center for Medical Progress revealed. Federal law prohibits anyone from selling human tissue for profit, but it does allow groups to be reimbursed for reasonable costs involved in procuring and mailing the tissue.
The problem is that Planned Parenthood does not have any costs to be reimbursed because the tissue procurement companies already take care of them, Kristan Hawkins, president of Students for Life of America, told LifeNews.
“They don’t have to pay for shipping. They don’t have to pay for anything. They are already being compensated by the mother for the abortion itself and then they get paid by the company who wants the baby body parts. They are breaking the law and they need to be held accountable,” she said.
Hawkins said they hope the video will help people understand exactly how Planned Parenthood makes money from the babies’ body parts after it aborts them, and why Planned Parenthood should be defunded of our tax dollars.
