Seventh Planned Parenthood Video: “Its Heart Is Still Beating”

Filed under: General — Dana @ 5:42 pm

[guest post by Dana]

The Center for Medical Progress released another Planned Parenthood video today. It is nothing less than the fullness of evil unmasked in all its hideous strength and might:

A former procurement technician who helped harvest organs at Planned Parenthood said she saw a baby boy’s heart beating outside his body before the child’s body parts were extracted.

Tragically, these tiny silent gifts from God are doomed to a pain unimaginable as they endure a barbaric death. It is an abomination, unspeakable and unimaginable, and yet that is precisely why it must be spoken about. Consider yourselves warned:

Holly O’Donnell, a former procurement technician at StemExpress, said at Mar Monte’s Alameda clinic in San Jose a co-worker named Jessica brought over the most fully developed baby she had ever seen and said, “I want you to see something kind of cool.”

There she saw the “closest thing to a [fully-developed] baby I’ve seen.”

“It had a face. It wasn’t completely torn up,” she said. “Its nose was very pronounced.”

“She has one of her instruments, and she taps the heart, and it starts beating.”

“I’m looking at this fetus, and it’s heart is beating,” O’Donnell said in astonishment.

“I don’t know if that constitutes it’s technically dead, or it’s alive,” she continued.

Dr. Ben Van Handel, the vice president of Novogenix Laboratories, says on the video “there are times when, after the [abortion] procedure is done, that the heart is still beating.”

O’Donnell said that, after showing her the child’s beating heart, Jessica told her, “This is a really good fetus, and it looks like we can procure a lot from it.”

And it gets worse:

She then asked O’Donnell to remove the baby’s brain with scissors through the baby’s face.

“I can’t even describe what that feels like,” O’Donnell said. “That was the moment I knew I couldn’t work for the company anymore…even if it was the cure for some disease.”

Warning: graphic images:

Death becomes a welcome friend. These are the silent witnesses of the evil among us. With their last breath, they fall gently into the open arms of God, close to His beating heart of perfect love as He welcomes them home.

  1. Hello.

  3. I believe this is vivisection.

  5. People need to know just after the six minute mark there is an infant that survived an abortion. It’s lying in a metal tray, not in an incubator where it belongs. It’s alive; it’s still moving a leg. It’s not easy to watch. Per federal law, if an infant survives an abortion and is breathing, has a heartbeat, or can move voluntary muscles it has a right to the same medical treatment as any other infant.

    Kali law is the same, and Kali courts have ruled that viability has nothing to do with it. It doesn’t matter if the child will survive outside the womb. Even if it will only live for a few minutes, a few hours, a day, doesn’t matter. You can’t ignore it, and you certainly can’t kill it.

    What a barbaric country we are, that we need such laws.

    Well, we have PP and its defenders, so we need such anti-barbarian laws. Per this video, PP considers that a “good fetus” as they can get more profit out of one.

    Former Dr. Gosnell was not an outlier.

  6. Kevin M, vivisection is the practice of doing experimental surgery on live animals.

    If that’s what this is, we are even worse than I thought. We at least anesthetize the animal.

    Harvesting organs has nothing to do with experimental surgery. If PP was doing that to Cecil the lion there would be uncontrollable outrage sweeping the intertubes.

    Steve57 (5a07a9)

  7. These videos are getting so much worse, 5:57 of this one is hard to watch.

    Yet, I see less about it in the news these days.

  11. But Jesus said, Suffer the little children, and forbid them not, to come unto me:
    for of such is the kingdom of heaven.
    Matthew 19:14

    The King will answer and say to them, ‘Truly I say to you, to the extent that you
    did it to one of these brothers of Mine, even the least of them, you did it to Me.’
    Matthew 25:40

    There have been approximately 57,762,169 abortions that have destroyed the lives
    of unborn children.

    Is it any wonder that it seems God has turned his face against the US?

  12. I’m a pretty cynical guy, and it’s hard to get me to tear up at things that don’t effect me personally even if I’m saddened or concerned. What got me was what Holly said “It’s just really hard knowing that you’re the only person that’s ever going to hold that baby.” And unlike earlier in the video, she did say “baby,” not “fetus.”

    God bless you, Holly O’Donnell.

    L.N.Smithee (e750c1)

  13. 12. …God bless you, Holly O’Donnell.

    L.N.Smithee (e750c1) — 8/19/2015 @ 6:41 pm

    Yes, she’s going to need it. She is clearly traumatized by what she saw, and what she so clearly regrets doing.

    I am a cynical guy, too. I am just cynical enough that if after seeing this video Kali AG Kamala Harris goes after anyone for violating CA Health and Safety Code Sections 123435…

    The rights to medical treatment of an infant prematurely born alive in the course of an abortion shall be the same as the rights of an infant of similar medical status prematurely born spontaneously.

    and 123440…

    (a) It is unlawful for any person to use any aborted product of human conception, other than fetal remains, for any type of scientific or laboratory research or for any other kind of experimentation or study, except to protect or preserve the life and health of the fetus. “Fetal remains,” as used in this section, means a lifeless product of conception regardless of the duration of pregnancy. A fetus shall not be deemed to be lifeless for the purposes of this section, unless there is an absence of a discernible heartbeat.

    it will be Holly O’Donnell. For exposing the evil of AG Harris’ friends in the abortion mill industry.

    I would put nothing past anyone who could see or learn about what happens in these videos and still defend PP. But soulless women like Kamala Harris can.

    Steve57 (5a07a9)

  14. I’m a bit confused on this one. Were these StemExpress or PP “people” doing this? or did PP not want to get their genteel hands dirty and they contract out the work directly to StemExpress?

    seeRpea (a7b697)

  15. Although I have used the expression “it turns my stomach” many times, I have never before actually thrown up just from reading a description. Now I have. I haven’t been able to watch the videos, just reading the descriptions is enough for me. These people have no humanity left.

    Caro (392d14)

  16. I’m sure Kamala Harris will be all over this. Expect Holly O’Donnell to do some serious jail time.

    Kevin M (25bbee)

  17. 14. I’m a bit confused on this one. Were these StemExpress or PP “people” doing this? or did PP not want to get their genteel hands dirty and they contract out the work directly to StemExpress?

    seeRpea (a7b697) — 8/19/2015 @ 7:28 pm

    The StemExpress people were (I’m tired of using antiseptic terms) cutting the baby into parts. But they were doing at a PP facility because the abortionists would actually confer with the StemExpress people about what their company wanted to get in the way of parts. Then the abortionists would try to get it.

    StemExpress’ requirements meant their “procurement specialists” had to be on site to do this butchery. There’s no way Holly O’Donnell could have witnessed an infant with a still-beating heart unless she was right there.

    Dr. Nucatola (or whatever) is in the video, discussing the importance of the “morning huddle” in this regard.

    It’s pretty clear if you watch the video. But I can understand why you wouldn’t want to.

    Steve57 (5a07a9)

  18. They won’t go after Holly, though. She could subpoena all kinds of stuff, the spectacle of the trial would be OJ-level, and it would become a centerpoint of the California election. Harris’ attempt to become Senator would be ruined.

    Kevin M (25bbee)

  19. I’m thinking that this video might make the basis of a campaign against Harris, actually.

    “Kamala Harris supports vivisection. Live babies cut up for parts, and Harris does nothing!”

    Kevin M (25bbee)

  20. 16. I’m sure Kamala Harris will be all over this. Expect Holly O’Donnell to do some serious jail time.

    Kevin M (25bbee) — 8/19/2015 @ 7:46 pm

    It’s going to make me sick if we’re right.

    But maybe Harris won’t purely out of tactical considerations. In order to convict O’Donnell, Harris will have to prove that everything O’Donnell said about PP and StemExpress, and what goes on at PP clinics is true.

    Steve57 (5a07a9)

  21. 19. “Kamala Harris supports vivisection. Live babies cut up for parts, and Harris does nothing!”

    Kevin M (25bbee) — 8/19/2015 @ 7:52 pm

    Nothing except go after the whistle blowers. She is still investigating the CMP, even if she’ll avoid going after Holly O’Donnell.

    Unfortunately with too much of the Kali electorate, this wouldn’t count against Harris.

  24. Take 2; We’re off the edge of the map. Here there be monsters.

  25. My God. May God have mercy on America

    In the words of our current president’s favorite pastor, “No, no, no, not God Bless America. God damn America… Your chickens are coming home to roost.”

    If the left is cynical about and skeptical and dismissive of the US as it has long been, and growing portions of the right are starting to feel the same way, who will be left?

    Mark (c64037)

  26. The job is to dismember the babies, whether they are in the womb or out of it. I don’t think you can do that job if you view the babies as human, but you don’t have a heart if you can’t.

    DRJ (1dff03)

  27. But I believe that at some point, likely early on, they *know* they are humans. This before the conscience becomes utterly seared and allows them to do that which is evil. Man’s capacity to rationalize the monstrous in so much as it benefit them, should never be underestimated. Just keep it wrapped up in a nest

    Dana (86e864)

  28. …neat

    Dana (86e864)

  29. Dang it… iPhone…anyway, just keep it wrapped up in a presentable and acceptable package of “healthcare” and they’re good to go.

    Dana (86e864)

  30. They also have to believe that it’s necessary for medical advancement. “Stem Cells will save us all!”

    Live forever by harvesting the tissue of babies…there must be a traditional monster that did this.

  34. the plural of anecdotes is not data

    this is all just “this one time at band camp” stuff

    plus i think she’s a liar

    happyfeet (a037ad)

  35. O’Donnell said that, after showing her the child’s beating heart, Jessica told her, “This is a really good fetus, and it looks like we can procure a lot from it.”


    i do not belieber this chick

  36. Go DIAF Happyfascist. You deserve the place you will reside in… eternally.

    njrob (a6a2ed)

  37. I am sure there is a penumbra (e.g. dark side of the moon) that guarantees rights to commit indiscriminate torture and killing of [wholly innocent] human lives by the millions. As well as to traffic their harvested bodies, parts, and tissue. The modern legal interpretation of “privacy” has dark undertones, but its convention and we should accept it, right?

  43. Sammy Hagar says this is a song about being born. Who am I to argue?

    Sunday morning, nine A.M.
    I saw fire in the sky
    I felt my heart pound in my chest
    I heard an eagle cry


    I’m alive when I breathe the air
    I feel the wind smell the earth in the air
    I watch an eagle rise above the trees
    Project myself into what he sees


    And just a few minutes ago it was reported the first wolf pack since 1924 spotted in Northern California

    Perfect metaphor for Obama’s 2nd term.

    papertiger (c2d6da)

  44. 30. …Live forever by harvesting the tissue of babies…there must be a traditional monster that did this.

    Dejectedhead (ba8561) — 8/19/2015 @ 10:30 pm

    There is. A ghoul in Arab folklore is an evil spirit that eats corpses and children.

    So applying the term to the denizens of PP abortion mills is actually technically accurate.

    Steve57 (5a07a9)

  45. So how many PP employees, newly introduced to the horror, have quit? How many PP employees,
    believing their friends didn’t know and now knowing their friends do indeed know, quit to pretend to be human?
    It would be one thing before this came out.
    It’s entirely another at this point and judging those who haven’t quit is pretty easy.
    So, if you know a PP employee, do you shun her? No longer include her in social activities? Turn your back when she is nearby? No longer cooperate in, say, shared rides to soccer practice for the kids, if any?
    Engage her and try to find out WTF?

    Richard Aubrey (472a6f)

  46. Richard Aubrey, I can honestly say I don’t have any friends who are PP employees.

    Which is different from saying I don’t have any gay friends. Unless they’re lying, I know what my friends do for a living.

    On the other hand I don’t know if I have any gay friends. I never ask. I’m always sort of suspicious of people who talk about their gay friends. Is there a section on Craigslist where you go to collect them, like Hummels?

    Anyway, now that the gag order has been lifted we have this to look forward to.

    The one new section featured Cate Dyer, the CEO of StemExpress in a lunch meeting with undercover operatives posing as representatives of a biotech firm. Dyer is seen laughing about how StemExpress purchases fully intact aborted babies from Planned Parenthood. As she paid the check, Dyer is laughing about how shippers of the aborted babies should give a warning to lab workers to expect such a whole (intact) baby.

    “Oh yeah, if you have intact cases — which we’ve done a lot — we sometimes ship those back to our lab in its entirety,” she says.

    “Tell the lab its coming,” she laughs about the intact unborn babies. “They don’t want to open the box and go ‘Oh my God!’” Dyer adds.

    Yes, it’s all a big joke. Nothing serious, like a Christian not baking a cake.

    Steve57 (5a07a9)

  47. I figure nothing rounds out a meal paid for by the blood money from the sale of parts torn from the bodies of still-living babies than a nice slice of cake extorted from a Christian for a gay wedding rite.

    Happyfascist’s Amerikkka.

    Steve57 (5a07a9)

  48. The 8th video is disgusting.

    JD (3b5483)

  49. Let’s not lose focus, people.

    The real atrocity is that a Christian might politely refuse to bake a cake to celebrate a ceremony.

    …she suspects that the “babies in some of these cases were alive until their hearts were cut out” for harvesting.

    …Deisher states that, in these cases, in order for the organs of aborted babies to be viable for research, the baby must be kept alive with a beating heart in order to get it through the harvest.

    “Biomedical companies prefer gestational ages of greater than 20 weeks for heart muscle,” she adds. “This is from reading their publications; so, I have always suspected that the babies in some of these cases were alive until their hearts were cut out.”

    Deisher, who earned a doctorate in molecular and cellular physiology from Stanford University, is the founder of Sound Choice Pharmaceutical Institute and the CEO of AVM Biotechnology. Based in Seattle, she has 23 patents in her name and was the first person worldwide to identify and patent stem cells from the adult heart.

    The problem isn’t the organ harvest. The problem is that somewhere there’s a Christian who won’t bake a cake to celebrate the Infant Organ Harvest Festival.

    Steve57 (5a07a9)

  50. 48. The 8th video is disgusting.

    JD (3b5483) — 8/21/2015 @ 4:43 pm

    We live in disgusting times, JD.
