Some readers will no doubt know that Planned Parenthood is a US-based organisation which operates extensively in both the United States and Third World countries, and receives lavish funding from the Obama Administration in the US because of its pro-abortion activities.

It now transpires that Planned Parenthood has been involved in an even more distressing trade: organ harvesting and trafficking.

The Center for Medical Progress has released an undercover video in which executives at the highest levels of Planned Parenthood are implicated in the sale of aborted babies’ body parts for medical experimentation – a practice that is illegal.

It’s a federal felony, and a conviction can be punished by up to 10 years in prison and $500,000 in fines.

David Daleiden of the Center for Medical Progress levelled the accusations in the wake of a 30-month-long investigation into Planned Parenthood. “Planned Parenthood’s criminal conspiracy to make money off of aborted baby parts reaches to the very highest levels of their organisation,” he said.

In the video, a woman identified as Planned Parenthood's senior medical services director, during a meeting with undercover investigators posing as buyers from a human biologics company, describes the use of partial-birth abortion to obtain undamaged fetal organs.

Planned Parenthood's national president, Cecile Richards, is also seen in the video, praising this horrific practice.

Planned Parenthood is the leading abortion business in the United States. While national abortion numbers have gone down in recent years, Planned Parenthood’s share of the total abortion market has continued to increase.

Their most recent annual report documents 327,653 abortions at Planned Parenthood in the last reported year – at least 30% of the US total – while the organisation raked in 528 million taxpayer dollars.

Asked to comment on the scandal, the leading Democrat Presidential candidate, Hillary Clinton, denounced the Center for Medical Progress and defended Planned Parenthood!

Belgrave, Vic.
