Pro-Life Americans Will Rally on July 28th to De-Fund Planned Parenthood
Planned Parenthood Still Reeling Following ‘Damaging Revelations’
Planned Parenthood Federation of America (PPFA) is in full damage-control mode following revelations in a video, published by the Center for Medical Progress (CMP), that the abortion giant sells the body parts of babies it has aborted, and tailors abortions to harvest particular organs and tissue.
PPFA President Cecile Richards has issued a response to the CMP video insisting the controversy is over what Planned Parenthood says rather than over what Planned Parenthood does.
PPFA apologizes for allowing the public to be exposed to the sincere and uncensored attitudes, motives, and details of its operations, and they would appreciate it if you would all just move on now.
In a two-minute videotaped defense of the organization, Richards implies the CMP footage of PPFA’s Senior Director of Medical Services is nothing more than a smear created by selective editing.
PPFA does not acknowledge the existence of the full footage that CMP also published.
For the press, PPFA distributed “backgrounder” documents on David Daleiden, CMP, and Live Action, labeling them as discredited extremists prone to deception and lying. And, if you aren’t shocked enough already, these villains all oppose legal abortion.
Predictably, major news outlets sympathetic to PPFA (are there any other kind?) reprinted its preferred narrative verbatim.
Richards also sought to distance PPFA from their own Senior Director for Medical Services, Dr. Deborah Nucatola.
Referring to her only as “one of our staff members,” Richards condemned Nucatola for her “unacceptable…tone and statements,” that failed to reflect PP’s institutional “compassion.”
As CMP put it, PPFA threw Nucatola (hereinafter, “Dr. What’s-Her-Name”) under the bus.
PPFA’s second defense is that its practices are all perfectly, technically legal under both federal and state laws.
It insists that the money it accepts for harvested organs and extremities of aborted babies falls within a narrow exception to the federal ban on the sale and/or purchase of fetal tissue, and neither it nor the patients profit from the practice. [Ed.: seriously?]
Several of Nucatola’s videotaped statements strongly suggest otherwise, and PPFA’s claims to legality are sure to be tested as a second Congressional committee and a total of six states have now opened investigations.
Moreover, as CMP has made clear, there are more videos coming, with another release expected early next week.
What is PPFA’s response to the larger controversy, to the many men and women unaffiliated with the pro-life movement who suddenly realized—thanks to the frankness of Dr. Nucatola— that they hold infant human life much more dear than PPFA does?
It’s this: PPFA stands behind the carefully orchestrated and airbrushed image it has cultivated for decades. ‘Trust us. We are the good guys. The opponents are the extremists. Just ask our friends at the New York Times.’

Planned Parenthood Doc Nucatola, Caught Selling Body Parts of Aborted Babies, Works With Obama Staffers
A shocking new expose’ video caught Planned Parenthood’s top doctor describing how the abortion business sells the body parts of aborted babies.
Now, new information indicates the Planned Parenthood abortionist works with current and former Obama administration staffers.
As LifeNews reported, new undercover footage shows Planned Parenthood Federation of America’s Senior Director of Medical Services, Dr. Deborah Nucatola, describing how Planned Parenthood sells the body parts of aborted unborn children and admitting she uses partial-birth abortions to supply intact body parts.
In the video, Nucatola is at a business lunch with actors posing as buyers from a human biologics company.
As head of PPFA’s Medical Services department, Nucatola has overseen medical practice at all Planned Parenthood locations since 2009. She also trains new Planned Parenthood abortion doctors and performs abortions herself at Planned Parenthood Los Angeles up to 24 weeks.
Nucatola admits that Planned Parenthood charges per-specimen for baby body parts, uses pseudo-partial-birth abortion procedures in order to get salable parts, and is aware of their own liability for doing so and takes steps to cover it up.
Now, a report by the Daily Caller indicates Nucatola serves on the board of a pro-abortion sex ed group founded by a former Obama administration official and whose board includes current Obama administration staff.
Records reveal that Nucatola was employed by a former White House staffer at the time that she was selling aborted baby fetus parts.
Nucatola is currently employed at Sexual Health Innovations, founded by former Obama White House staffer Jessica Ladd.
Senior Obama administration officials sit on the board of the abortion activist group, including Praveen Basaviah of the President’s Advisory Council on HIV/AIDS and Kyle Bernstein of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
The IRS-approved 501(c)3 tech nonprofit is a major Obama administration contractor.
The group works on issues including “abortion access,” according to its website. But the group’s biggest project right now is Callisto, an online “third-party sexual assault reporting system” for girls on college campuses. The property in development counts Google as its investor.
The Daily Caller has inquired as to the level of compensation that Nucatola currently earns at the nonprofit.
Jessica Ladd is the Founder and CEO of Sexual Health Innovations. She previously worked in the White House Office of National AIDS Policy, as a Public Policy Associate at The AIDS Institute, and as a sexual health educator and researcher for a variety of organizations.
The revelation is not surprising given the fact that Obama has spoken before Planned Parenthood’s national conference, the abortion giant endorsed and worked closely with Obama and his administration, and its CEO Cecile Richards has hobnobbed with Obama at White House functions.
In the video, Nucatola admits that Planned Parenthood charges per-specimen for baby body parts, uses illegal partial-birth abortion procedures in order to get salable parts, and is aware of their own liability for doing so and takes steps to cover it up.
The footage shockingly depicts the top medical official at the Planned Parenthood corporation munching on her salad while she discusses the sale of body parts of unborn children victimized by abortions.
She brazenly describes how the heads of unborn babies killed in abortions command top dollar.
The buyers ask Nucatola, “How much of a difference can that actually make, if you know kind of what’s expected, or what we need?”
“It makes a huge difference,” Nucatola replies. “I’d say a lot of people want liver. And for that reason, most providers will do this case under ultrasound guidance, so they’ll know where they’re putting their forceps. The kind of rate-limiting step of the procedure is calvarium. Calvarium—the head—is basically the biggest part.”
Nucatola explains, “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.”
“And with the calvarium, in general, some people will actually try to change the presentation so that it’s not vertex,” she continues. “So if you do it starting from the breech presentation, there’s dilation that happens as the case goes on, and often, the last step, you can evacuate an intact calvarium at the end.”
In a video response to the heavy criticism, Planned Parenthood CEO Cecile Richards apologizes for the tone the Nucatola took but not for selling the body parts of aborted babies.
Another shocking video exposing Planned Parenthood selling aborted babies is expected next week.
Over the last few days, nearly every Republican candidate for president as well as countless lawmakers have expressed their outrage regarding the video and called on Congress to defund Planned Parenthood.
A total of five [six] states are slated to begin investigations of the Planned Parenthood abortion business.
The video, which has been seen by more than two million people, reveals how the abortion giant sometimes alters their procedures to ensure high-quality “specimen” for organ harvesting.

Caught on Tape: Planned Parenthood Trafficking in Body Parts From Aborted Babies
The Center for Medical Progress has released a video showing a top Planned Parenthood official discussing how the organization is illegally trafficking body parts from aborted babies:
Dr. Deborah Nucatola is the Senior Director of Medical Services at Planned Parenthood Federation of America.
She was filmed at a lunch meeting with two undercover investigators posing as buyers looking to purchase fetal tissue.
In the video, Nucatola states that Planned Parenthood charges buyers a per-specimen price for organs and tissues from aborted babies, which would clearly seem to be organ selling:
Further, she describes the procedures (including illegal partial birth or D&X abortions) used to obtain the body parts intact, and how she and other abortionists decide what techniques to use based not on what is safest for the mother, but how they can best obtain body parts to sell.
From the transcript (p. 38) of the video:
I had 8 cases yesterday. And I knew exactly what we needed, and I kinda looked at the list and said okay, this 17-weeker has 8 lams [laminaria], and this one—so I knew which were the cases that were probably more likely to yield what we needed, and I made my decisions according to that too, so it’s worth having a huddle at the beginning of the day, and that’s what I do. …
Also in the transcript (p. 11), she says:
And with the calvarium [fetal head], in general, some people will actually try to change the presentation so that it’s not vertex [head down], because when it’s vertex presentation, you never have enough dilation at the beginning of the case, unless you have real, huge amount of dilation to deliver an intact calvarium.
So if you do it starting from the breech presentation, there’s dilation that happens as the case goes on, and often, the last, you can evacuate an intact calvarium at the end.
So I mean there are certainly steps that can be taken to try to ensure—
Buyer: So they can convert to breach, for example, at the start of the —
PP: Exactly, exactly. Under ultrasound guidance, they can just change the presentation.

Livers or Hearts? Casual Dinner with PP Exec Reveals Horror
“I’d say a lot want liver,” Dr. Deborah Nucatola says with a cool air, daintily placing a piece of lettuce in her mouth.
She isn’t discussing the menu of the noisy restaurant in which she’s being filmed, unaware of the undercover investigators sitting before her. In fact, her breezy manner is incredibly disturbing when you know that Nucatola is Planned Parenthood’s Senior Director of Medical Services, and she’s discussing the sale of fetal body parts – a felony punishable by up to 10 years in prison.
The video below is the first installment of a nearly three-year investigation conducted by The Center for Medical Progress [ http://www.centerformedicalprogress.org ] into the abortion industry’s thriving (and very illegal) fetal body part business. Besides her full disclosure of Planned Parenthood’s total involvement in this process among the abortion giant’s affiliates, Nucatola also admits to personally performing illegal partial-birth abortions in order to preserve body parts for sale.
“The Federal Abortion Ban is a law,” Nucatola says, casually sipping her wine, “and laws are up to interpretation.”
Thus far, Planned Parenthood CEO Cecile Richards has made no comment; however, two hours after the release of this video, Dr. Nucatola’s Twitter account was deleted. CEC For Life will continue to post updates as this investigation, dubbed “Human Capital,” reveals more and more.
