Planned Parenthood has always been a shady organization, from its shady beginnings and its founder’s views of racial eugenics. However it is also one of the darlings of liberals and the left, and any criticism of Planned Parenthood is often regarded as a personal attack on them and their beliefs. This doesn’t change the fact that at the very least, the organization is likely hiding something from the public.
In the following video, Right Wing News looks at the latest undercover video involving Dr. Mary Gatter, who has worked as medical director for the organization’s Los Angeles and Pasadena affiliates. Posing as buyers from a biotech company, casts doubt over Planned Parenthood’s practice of providing fetal tissue to such companies. They are not supposed to be making any profit over such a sale, but the video casts doubt on this. Will a real investigation ever take place?
The Center for Medical Progress [CMP] has released a new video that will continue the controversy over the supposed sales of fetal tissue by Planned Parenthood.
As many might remember, the original “I Want a Lamborghini” video controversy in which Dr. Mary Gatter is seen negotiating with someone pretending to be a fetal organ-tissue buyer was dismissed largely because Planned Parenthood argued that the prices being negotiated were merely to cover the costs of the transaction rather than a revenue stream for Planned Parenthood.
That video can still be seen on youtube.com, but one must sit through or click pass a disclaimer by Planned Parenthood president Cecelia Richards.
Today, CMP has released another video featuring Dr. Gatter of Lamborghini fame.
On this one she appears again to be negotiating with a prospective buyer of fetal organs.
As The Blaze describes it:
The undercover video depicts a conversation that Dr. Mary Gatter, who has worked as the medical director of Planned Parenthood’s Los Angeles and Pasadena affiliates, had with investigators posing as buyers from a biotechnology company. Gatter was the subject of a previous video released by the pro-life group in which she appeared to haggle over the prices of aborted fetal body parts before saying, “I want a Lamborghini.”
The second video and the information that CMP has released with it challenge many of the exculpatory arguments given after the first video.
For example, that Dr. Gatter is providing a price range for the cost of fetal organs and tissue (as she did the in the first video) does not make it seem as though she is asking for reimbursement, which one would assume would be a set price.
Let’s say to be reimbursed for providing an organ from an unborn child, which Planned Parenthood has already been paid to abort, is $50.
Therefore, a medical researcher who wants that organ will pay Planned Parenthood $50 for it. If the buyer pays $75, then clearly Planned Parenthood is illegally making a profit over the sale of fetal tissue.
Suspiciously, Planned Parenthood has no such menu of how much it would be required to reimburse them for the cost to say remove the liver of a fetus.
As CMP points out:
According to contracts and invoices, the real-life fetal organ and tissue wholesaler companiesNovogenix, StemExpress, and Advanced Bioscience Resources all made monthly payments to Planned Parenthood based on the number of resalable fetal specimens the wholesalers’ workers could harvest inside the abortion clinics.Planned Parenthood told Congressional investigators it kept no contemporaneous records of actual costs for reimbursement under the law.
The Novogenix contract promises Planned Parenthood Los Angeles $45 “per donated specimen.” Planned Parenthood Los Angeles does over 15,000 abortions every year, but has never publicly admitted how much money they received total under their contract with Novogenix. In December 2016, the Senate Judiciary Committee and the House Select Investigative Panel both referred Planned Parenthood Los Angeles and Novogenix to the FBI and U.S. Department of Justice for further investigation and criminal prosecution.
Apparently, Planned Parenthood is behaving as if it is an organization with something to hide here.
