A former Planned Parenthood vice president who was accused of selling aborted baby body parts is the new CEO of an independent abortion facility in Boulder, Colorado.
Live Action News reports abortionist Savita Ginde is now running the Boulder Valley Women’s Health Center, the oldest abortion facility in the state. It opened in 1973.
“I’m proud,” Ginde told the Boulder Daily Camera. “I’m so excited to be here and take this on and get us prepared and make us strong and accessible to all the patients that are going to be seeking care from us.”
A few years ago, however, Ginde was in the news spotlight because of a scandal.
A former vice president and medical director of Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountains, Ginde was caught discussing the harvesting and pricing of aborted baby body parts in a 2015 undercover video by the Center for Medical Progress.
In the video, Ginde told an undercover investigator posing as a buyer that she wants to charge per “tissue sample” because that will bring in the most money. She said, “I think the per-item [pricing] works a little better, just because we can see how much we can get out of it.”
In a second video, Ginde explained how Planned Parenthood has to train abortion doctors how to properly perform second-trimester abortions in order to better harvest intact organs from the aborted babies.

“We’d have to do a little bit of training with the providers or something to make sure that they don’t crush fetal organs,” Ginde said in the video.
The sale or purchase of human fetal tissue is a federal felony punishable by up to 10 years in prison or a fine of up to $500,000 (42 U.S.C. 289g-2). Federal law also requires that no alteration in the timing or method of abortion be done for the purposes of fetal tissue collection (42 U.S.C. 289g-1).
In 2019, the Center for Medical Progress sued Ginde, accusing her of making false and defamatory claims that the undercover videos were “fabricated” and “fake.”
However, neither Ginde nor Planned Parenthood ever faced charges. The abortion chain asserted that it did nothing wrong and only received money for shipping, storage and other costs allowed under the law.
