Christopher Johnson, a non-Catholic who has taken up the cudgels so frequently for the Church that I have named him Defender of the Faith, in a post entitled appropriately EINSATZGRUPPEN, looks at the revelation that Planned Parenthood is making money off the corpses of some of the babies they murder:
Initially, I wasn’t particularly shocked by this story:
An undercover video shot last summer by a new pro-life organization called Center for Medical Progress purports to show the chief medical officer of Planned Parenthood of America talking on camera about how to abort a child intact so the child’s body parts can be transferred for medical and scientific research.
The video was shot by a team led by David Daleiden of the Center for Medical Progress posing as representatives of a start up biotech firm in the business of buying fetal body parts for medical and scientific research. Daleiden told Breitbart News, “It as remarkably easy to make contact with Planned Parenthood” to discuss procurement of fetal tissue.
I mean, it’s Murder, Inc., it’s what they do. But the truly scary thing about this story is that the more you think about it and the deeper you dig, the more horrifying this all eventually becomes. Satan, and I’m not being at all figurative here, is in the details. Like these.
The video purports to show, between bites of lunch and sips of wine, Dr. Deborah Nucatola saying, “A lot of people want intact hearts these days, because they are looking for specific nodes.”
She adds: “Yesterday was the first time she said people wanted lungs. And then, like I said, always as many intact livers as possible. People just want…some people want lower extremities, too. I mean that’s easy. I don’t know what they’re doing with it, I guess they want muscle.”
[Nucatola] talks about pricing. “You know, I would throw a number out, and I would say it’s probably anywhere from $30 to $100 [per specimen] depending on the facility and what’s involved.”
In the video, Nucatola goes into great detail about ordering specific body parts and how the abortionist goes about ensuring those parts are not damaged in the abortion. She says the abortionist uses “ultrasound guidance, so they’ll know where they’re putting their forceps.”
And then she talks about the baby’s head. “The kind of rate-limiting step is procedure is calvarium.
Know what a calvarium is? There should be one on top of your neck.
Calvarium — the head — is basically the biggest part. Most of the other stuff can come out intact.”
Nucatola says the doctor has to be “just kind of cognizant of where you put your graspers, you try to intentionally go above and below the thorax, so that, you know, we’ve been very good at getting heart, lung, liver, because we know that, so I’m not gonna crush that part, I’m going to basically crush below, and I’m gonna crush above, and I’m gonna see if I can get it all intact.”
Nucatola explains how the position of the baby can be changed so that she can be extracted up to the head and then collapse the head so that all the other body parts can be extracted without damage.
Think about that for a second. The “chief medical officer” of Murder, Inc. doesn’t want it’s accredited teppanyaki chefs to go in there and just start indiscriminately slicing and dicing. MI has a bottom line to think about.
They’re harvesting them. The bastards are harvesting them.
But they’re “harvesting them” for medical research. They’re trying to save lives.
Oh, come on now, Johnson. You’ve just been diagnosed with some kind of terminal illness; the doctors tell you that you have 3 to 5 years left. Optimistically.
But there’s this treatment deriving from the research on or the direct use of fetal tissue that could extend your life be decades or even cure you. Are you seriously claiming that you would refuse such treatment if you knew where it came from?
Yeah, pretty much. Prolonging my existence is not a high, personal priority right now. And if it necessitates killing other human beings, it’s far too high a price to pay anyway.
Will this story have legs? The Washington Post has picked it up so we’ll see.
