Whistleblower: Working At Planned Parenthood Is Morbid; “You Can Feel It. You Can Hear Screaming”
A new Planned Parenthood exposé video has been released by the Center for Medical Progress, and it features whistleblower Holly O’Donnell revealing that aborted baby body parts and organs were taken without the consent of the women having abortions.
O’Donnell, who worked for Stem Express, one of the bio-medical firms thought to have procured body parts from Planned Parenthood clinics, also shares her feelings on what it is like to work inside a Planned Parenthood facility.
“The environment, it’s morbid,” says O’Donnell who talks about searching for women to “consent” to giving up fetal remains for “research.””Like, you can feel it. You can hear screaming, you can hear crying.” she adds.
O’Donnell reveals that “consent” was a loosely used term, because often patients were not aware that officials were taking the remains of aborted babies to sell.
“The co-workers I had, they were just, they would not consent the donors.” O’Donnell claims. “If there was a higher gestation and the technicians needed it, they would just take what they wanted, and these mothers don’t know. There’s no way they would know.”
O’Donnell cites a specific case at a Fresno clinic, noting “that was the most high-volume clinic we have. Lots of abortions. Lots.”
“I had a very gestated patient. … I consented her, and she said no, and I was fine with that. I’m not going to press anybody, I’m not gonna consent a girl who’s throwing up from the abortion medication, that’s not who I am. She said no and, the next day, Jessica came and said ‘Oh, that high-gestated girl, you have to make sure you get her.’ And I said, ‘Oh, I already consented her yesterday, she’s not comfortable.’ And Jessica looked at me like ‘ok’ and walked out. She went into the room and she came out and she was holding all these tubes, and all I said to her was, ‘What did you say to her to get that blood?’ and she was like ‘nothing.’
I’m like, so basically you just went in there and took her blood and you’re going to be taking her fetus without her knowing.” O’Donnell states.
“Imagine if you were an abortion patient, and someone was going in and stealing your baby’s parts,” O’Donnell urges, clearly uncomfortable with the notion.
O’Donnell also notes that while many at the clinics were not concerned with bio-medical officials getting hold of fetus body parts, higher up nurses had been briefed that it was financially beneficial.
“For whatever we could procure, they would get a certain percentage. The main nurse was always trying to make sure we got our specimens. No one else really cared, but the main nurse did because she knew that Planned Parenthood was getting compensated.” O’Donnell notes.
Reacting to the video, Lila Rose, founder and president of pro life group Live Action stated “We can now add harvesting baby organs without the consent of the mother to the list of ethical violations and criminal activities committed inside Planned Parenthood clinics.”
The CMP released the video despite the best efforts of Stem Express. The company was granted a restraining order last month in an attempt to prevent any more footage containing three other employees being released to the public.
David Daleiden, the project leader for CMP, said in a statement that the video illustrates why Planned Parenthood should be investigated by law enforcement agencies.
“Experiences like Holly O’Donnell’s show that Planned Parenthood’s abortion and baby parts business is not a safe place where vulnerable women can be cared for, but a harvesting ground for saleable human ‘product,’” Daleiden said. “Law enforcement and other elected officials must act decisively to determine the full extent of Planned Parenthood’s offensive practices and hold them accountable to the law.”
