The man behind an undercover investigation of Planned Parenthood says the abortion giant is “absolutely” engaged in the illegal trafficking of fetal body parts. During an appearance on the “O’Reilly Factor,” David Daleiden, founder of the Center for Medical Progress, said his organization spent years investigating Planned Parenthood’s involvement in selling the parts of aborted babies— and he has the evidence to prove it.
“We spent three years with our actors and investigators undercover deeply embedded with Planned Parenthood affiliates and top level executives,” Daleiden said. “We have heard from their own mouths many, many times over that they sell the body parts, and that they make money off of doing so— and they have the profit motive in doing so.”
During the interview, Bill O’Reilly, however, made some interesting points about the reality of fetal development and Planned Parenthood’s massive abortion business:
O’REILLY: All right. So biotech companies need body parts for research — all right. And the body parts in question were exclusively going to be taken from babies or fetuses depending on your point of view, which were aborted— but they would have had to have been aborted late-term because the body parts aren’t formed until the third trimester. Isn’t that correct?
DALEIDEN: Well, actually most of the body parts are there in the first trimester. But the reason that the requests come in for late second trimester body parts is partly for practical considerations that it’s a lot easier to identify the body parts when the baby is bigger.
In the full, unedited footage, Dr. Deborah Nucatola admits that Planned Parenthood sells fetal body parts for preborn babies killed as young as nine weeks. That is especially chilling, considering that Planned Parenthood performs the most abortions of any provider in the United States.
While abortions are declining overall, the number of abortions Planned Parenthood performs is increasing. The majority of those abortions are first trimester abortions. In other words, this is not just a late-term abortion issue— this is an issue that permeates Planned Parenthood leadership, as Daleiden has promised to prove. There are still up to a dozen videos to come of top-level Planned Parenthood executives discussing the sale of fetal body parts.
The now viral expose has sparked outrage and investigations across the country. Since the release of the video, states across the country have opened investigations into Planned Parenthood, and the U.S. House of Representatives has opened a congressional investigation, as well.
In the wake of the scandal, Planned Parenthood has been busy doing damage control. Planned Parenthood CEO Cecile Richards released a video, calling the donations compassionate in order to deflect from the shocking information that Daleiden and the Center for Medical Progress uncovered.
Planned Parenthood is going to do everything they can to brush this under the rug and minimize the reality of what they are doing. But this is one scandal they might not be able to make go away.
