Planned Parenthood hires crisis management firm as third video is released

The Center for Medical Progress released their third undercover video of Planned Parenthood’s involvement with the sale of fetal tissue for research.  The video features an interview with Holly O’Donnell, a phlebotomist who used to work for StemExpress as a procurement technician.

Viewers should be aware there are parts of the video that are extremely graphic.

O’Donnell provided detailed testimony, stating that StemExpress wanted her to collect as many samples as possible in order to make as much money as possible.

The harder and the more valuable the tissue, the more money you get. So if you can somehow procure a brain or a heart, you can get more money than just like chorionic villi or umbilical cord…I guess that’s an “incentive” to try and get the hard stuff because you get more money.

In a powerful segment of the video, O’Donnell recounted her first day on the job, when she was brought to a Planned Parenthood clinic as part of her training.  As they entered one of the rooms, she noticed a light tray with pie dishes on it.

She had no idea what was going on.

Then someone came in with a bottle that appeared to be filled with blood, went over to the sink, emptied the contents into a strainer, put it on one of the pie dishes, and lit it up from below.  O’Donnell watched in confusion.

And my trainer comes over and she puts on gloves and she grabs some tweezers and she’s picking the parts away from the vaginal tissue. And I’m, I’ve never had anxiety before this at all. So I’m looking and I don’t know what’s going on. I had no idea this was what was going to be happening, especially my first day. And, uh, she’s literally she has tweezers and she’s like, “OK. Well, this is a head. This is the arm. This is a leg.” And then she hands them over to me, “Oh, here you go. Can you show me some of the parts I just showed you?” And I grabbed the tweezers because I didn’t want to lose this job. I didn’t know…

the moment I took the tweezers, I put them in the dish, and I remember grabbing a leg and I said, “This is a leg.” And the moment I picked it up I could just feel, like, death and pain. Like, never felt that before. Like shoot up through my body…. I remember leaving that day, like, “What have I gotten myself into?”

The video then cuts to one of the “buyers” talking with two people in the lab area about the viability of the tissue they are picking through, including a physician by the name of Dr. Ginde (spelling corrected).  After the “buyer” expresses enthusiasm about how many samples an “11-6” (referring to the age of the fetus) would have provided, Grinde exclaims, “Excellent!”  The conversation then turns to matters of money as Grinde says: “I think a per-item thing works a little better, just because we can see how much we can get out of it.”

No commentary is needed.  Anyone who has an ounce of humanity knows that this is depraved.

Planned Parenthood has continued to dig in, standing behind its practices.  Having been exposed (with many more videos to come), the organization's people are now in full panic mode and have hired SKDKnickerbocker, a crisis communications firm.  Anita Dunn, the former White House communications director who listed Mao Tse-Tung as one of her favorite philosophers, is their managing director.  ('Nuff said.)  Apparently the firm has jumped into action, as Planned Parenthood sent letters to some media outlets instructing them not to air the videos. 

Planned Parenthood, the left, and now SKDKnickerbocker will continue to use whatever means necessary to silence the truth and spin this until Planned Parenthood is perceived as the righteous victim.  In the Age of Obama, it’s anyone’s guess how this will all turn out.

God bless the brave souls at the Center for Medical Progress and Holly O’Donnell for her wisdom, integrity, and willingness to speak out.
