A Planned Parenthood abortionist caught up in the abortion chain’s baby body parts scandal appears to be doing unlicensed surgical abortions in Indiana, according to evidence uncovered by state pro-life leaders this month.
On Wednesday, Tippecanoe County Right to Life leaders said they filed complaints with the Indiana Attorney General’s Office and Indiana State Department of Health after noticing problems on two termination of pregnancy documents from the state Department of Health.
The termination of pregnancy (TPRs) reports involve two abortions on March 5 at the Planned Parenthood in Lafayette. Both TPRs mark the abortion types as “Medical (Surgical) Suction Curettage.” The reports estimate the gestational age of the aborted babies at 11 weeks.
But, according to the pro-life organization, the Lafayette facility is only licensed to do drug-induced, or chemical, abortions. The facility website advertises drug-induced abortions up to 10 weeks; it does not advertise surgical abortions.
Also interesting, both reports include the signature of Dr. Deborah Nucatola and list her as the facility’s medical director. Nucatola was the abortionist exposed in the first undercover video that the Center for Medical Progress released in its extensive investigation of Planned Parenthood’s aborted baby body parts trade.
“Tippecanoe County Right to Life routinely reviews TPRs to ensure Planned Parenthood is following Indiana’s abortion procedure, licensing and reporting laws,” the pro-life organization said in a statement. “It first saw Nucatola’s name appear as the medical director in Lafayette in December 2019.”
Kevin Niebrugge, a board member of the pro-life organization, said he filed complaints with state officials after reviewing the documents. He said they want to ensure that women’s health is protected in Indiana.

“If Planned Parenthood brought in a prominent abortion doctor to begin surgical abortion procedures in Lafayette, women’s health and safety is at serious risk,” Niebrugge said. “The Lafayette Planned Parenthood facility is not licensed to do surgical abortions, because their facility is not set-up to meet the physical building and safety standards required for surgical abortions.”
Niebrugge urged the state attorney general and health officials to quickly look into the reports.
“Until there is a thorough investigation, women’s health is at risk,” he said.
Back in 2015, Nucatola was in the national spotlight after David Daleiden and the Center for Medical Progress released their first undercover video exposing Planned Parenthood’s handling of aborted baby body parts.
In that first video, Nucatola could be seen eating lunch while discussing how she crushes aborted babies to better harvest their organs.
“We’ve been very good at getting heart, lung, liver, because we know that, so I’m not gonna crush that part, I’m gonna basically crush below, I’m gonna crush above, and I’m gonna see if I can get it all intact,” she said in the video.
