In an unusual move, the FBI has announced that it has accepted criminal referrals from the U.S. Senate against Planned Parenthood (PP). The referrals mean that the FBI will now investigate the claims and determine what, if any, charges should be brought against PP, its associates and the companies that purchased aborted fetal tissue from it.
The organization was discovered to be selling body parts from aborted fetuses for a nice profit to companies that turned around and sold them for an even bigger profit.
The Center for Medical Progress did an undercover investigation into Planned Parenthood and the accusation that they were unlawfully selling body parts from the aborted babies to increase their revenue. PP is only allowed to charge for the cost of harvesting the parts but it wasn’t doing the harvesting. The buyers would send a representative to do the actual harvesting, meaning that by law, PP should not have charged a penny for the parts.
The video is gruesome and appalling.
It purportedly shows a Planned Parenthood executive sipping a glass of wine in a Los Angeles restaurant while casually explaining how they sell body parts from aborted babies.
The undercover video was filmed in July 2014 by the Center for Medical Progress, an advocacy group that reports on medical ethics. They dispatched two actors posing as representatives of a human biologics company to a business lunch with Deborah Nucatola, Planned Parenthood’s senior director of medical services.
The video shows Nucatola describing in graphic detail how abortionists are able to harvest organs from aborted babies based on the parts that are needed.
“Yesterday was the first time she said people wanted lungs,” she told the undercover buyers. “Some people want lower extremities, too, which, that’s simple. That’s easy. I don’t know what they’re doing with it, I guess if they want muscle.”
To which one of the fake buyer’s replied, “Yeah – a dime a dozen.”
“I’d say a lot of people want liver,” Nucatola said. “And for that reason, most providers will do this case under ultrasound guidance, so they’ll know where they’re putting their forceps.”
She went on to describe how they are able to acquire other organs without “crushing” them.
“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.”
PP tried to say that the videos were “heavily edited,” but everyone who examined the released tapes against the originals agreed that the videos were not edited to change content and that includes the company working for PP. That company will seem familiar to you. Fusion GPS. The purveyors of the bogus Trump dossier.
The first study was commissioned by Planned Parenthood and performed by Democratic opposition-research firm Fusion GPS, which examined only the four full-length CMP videos available on YouTube. Despite Planned Parenthood’s claims that the study proves the videos to be “heavily edited” to “distort and misrepresent,” the Fusion report actually states that the audio was not tampered with and that “analysis did not reveal widespread evidence of substantive video manipulation.”
The second study, commissioned by Alliance Defending Freedom, was performed by Coalfire Systems, Inc., a group that conducts forensic analysis for Fortune 500 companies. Unlike Fusion, Coalfire examined the full source raw footage but, like Fusion, the group found that all edits were “non-pertinent” and consisted of “commuting, waiting, adjusting recording equipment, meals, and restroom breaks.” This conclusion was supported by time-stamped screenshots and a detailed report.
“We can confirm the Criminal Investigative Division (CID) of FBI Headquarters received your referrals and sent them to the relevant FBI field offices for review and whatever action is deemed appropriate,” the FBI’s Gregory Brower writes to Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-IA).
The letter, dated June 19, 2017, was never publicized by the Judiciary Committee and is located in the correspondence section of its website:
