Planned Parenthood is under fire for harvesting organs for sale from the babies they abort, but the journalistic project uncovering their participation in fetal organ trafficking has brought another nefarious aspect to the organ trade.
Remember what Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountains’ Vice President and Medical Director, Dr. Savita Ginde, said in her meeting with people she believed to be purchasers of organs? Here’s an image from the video released earlier this week:
She says, “Sometimes, if we get, if someone delivers before we get to see them for a procedure, then we are intact.” According to the Center for Medical Progress, Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountains “does not use digoxin or other feticide in its 2nd trimester procedures” so “any intact deliveries before an abortion are potentially born-alive infants under federal law.”
While mainstream journalists continue to be reluctant about pursuing angles to this story, the journalist behind the project shared why he believes one of the companies that purchases aborted baby parts is desperate to keep him from publishing the story:
Remember, the Los Angeles Superior Court issued a limited, temporary restraining order against the Center for Medical Progress. Under the terms of the order, the non-profit organization is banned from releasing video of a May lunch attended by three StemExpress officials. Daleiden says about that:
In a meeting with their top leadership where their leadership admitted that they sometimes get fully intact fetuses shipped to their laboratory from the abortion clinics they work with, and that could be prima facie evidence of born alive infants. And so that’s why they’re trying to suppress that videotape and they’re very scared of it.
The videotaped admission of this receipt of fully intact fetuses is what Stem Express is fighting so hard to suppress, Daleiden says. Whether they’re successful or not, now we may have a better understanding of why they’re trying to get the courts to keep this information hidden.
The full video is worth watching as well:

BOMBSHELL: INVESTIGATOR SAYS STEMEXPRESS BOUGHT INTACT DEAD BABIES FROM PLANNED PARENTHOOD
31 July 2015 by AUSTIN RUSE31 Jul 2015762
Undercover investigator David Daleiden tells CNN the reason StemExpress is trying to suppress the video he took of its CEO on May 22 is because the company doesn’t want anyone to know it bought whole intact dead babies from Planned Parenthood.
Daleiden said on CNN, “In a meeting with their top leadership, they admitted that they sometimes get fully intact fetuses shipped to their laboratory from the abortion clinics they work with, and that could be prima facie evidence of born alive infants. And so that’s why they’re trying to suppress that videotape and they’re very scared of it.”
On May 22, Daleiden and his team had lunch with StemExpress CEO Cate Dyer and other senior personnel from the company that is the main buyer of freshly killed baby parts from Planned Parenthood. As the Center for Medical Progress has released videos, four so far, it is certain that anyone who met with Daleiden, who was posing as CEO of a fictitious company called BioMax, would become worried about what they might have said. Apparently StemExpress talked about things that may shock America and any future stockholders of the as-yet privately held company.
StemExpress filed a lawsuit against Daleiden earlier this week in hopes of stopping the video and other material from being distributed. They are claiming the meeting was confidential and that Daleiden signed a confidentiality agreement. A Superior Court Judge in Los Angeles rejected one claim by StemExpress outright on Monday evening, but ordered a very narrow temporary restraining order related to that one video on Tuesday.
It is now clear why StemExpress is fighting so hard to suppress the video.

Planned Parenthood Scandal: Second Abortion Group Tries to Block Release of Sting Videos
National Abortion Federation files injunction
July 31, 2015 by Paul Joseph Watson
A second abortion organization is attempting to block the release of embarrassing videos obtained by the Center for Medical Progress (CMP) – the group behind the Planned Parenthood exposé.
The National Abortion Federation filed an injunction today in the US District Court of the Northern District of California against CMP, just two days after bioservice firm StemExpress obtained a court order blocking the release of footage which purportedly shows officials from StemExpress discussing organ harvesting.
Responding to the court order, CMP asserted that, StemExpress was “attempting to use meritless litigation to cover-up this illegal baby parts trade, suppress free speech, and silence the citizen press reporting on issues of burning concern to the American public.”
According to the CMP’s David Daleiden, StemExpress is trying to block the release of the video because it proves babies were born alive before having their organs harvested.
In a press release, the National Abortion Federation stated that it had, “Filed suit today in federal court seeking a temporary restraining order and preliminary injunction which would prohibit the Center for Medical Progress (CMP), David Daleiden, and others from releasing recordings and materials they illegally obtained at NAF’s educational meetings.”
“The Center for Medical Progress must have a sting video from National Abortion Federation meetings. And NAF doesn’t want it released!,”writes Jim Hoft.
Yesterday, the Center for Medical Progress released another Planned Parenthood video exposé which showed employees pushing aborted baby parts around a petri dish while joking about how the body was “war torn.”
“Another boy!” joked another medical assistant.
The footage shows Rocky Mountains Medical Director Savita Ginde suggesting ways to avoid legal consequences of selling body parts while negotiating a deal based on different body parts, contradicting claims by Planned Parenthood that only transfer and shipping costs are taken into consideration during such negotiations.
Pro-Lifers, Be Wary of Mitch McConnell on Planned Parenthood
July 31, 2015 By: Erick Erickson (Diary)
I saw Al Mohler of the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary tweet out this link earlier today. Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) 61% is calling on Planned Parenthood being defunded.
I hope McConnell will stick with this, even at the risk of President Obama shutting down the government in the fight. But we should remember that we are at this point because of legislation McConnell supported.
In 1991, Democrats introduced legislation to allow tissue donation for experimentation from elective abortions. President George H. W. Bush was vehemently opposed to the legislation. Nonetheless, it passed the House of Representatives with 274 votes.
It also passed the Senate with Mitch McConnell voting for the legislation.
McConnell again voted for the legislation after a conference committee reconciled the House and Senate versions.
President Bush stuck to his guns and vetoed the legislation, which the House of Representatives failed to override on June 24, 1992.
On June 25, 1992, one day later, the legislation was again introduced in the Senate. On October 2, 1992, Mitch McConnell joined the Democrats in support of fetal tissue sales. Luckily, Senators, including Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-UT) 47% and Jesse Helms filibustered and ran out the clock.
But it was reintroduced on January 21, 1993, the day after Bill Clinton’s inauguration. It passed the Senate on February 18, 1993, with McConnell’s vote. It passed the House and was signed into law by Bill Clinton on June 10, 1993.
Again, George H. W. Bush and conservatives opposed the legislation because it used federal tax dollars to do research on aborted children from Planned Parenthood. McConnell stood with the Democrats in support of the legislation.
I hope he has learned his lesson and will fight on this hill, even risking blame in the media for a government shutdown, but the pro-life movement should be wary of promises.
