Fetal Body Parts Vendor Say Intact Fetuses “Just Fell Out” During Abortions

The Center for Medical Progress (CMP) has released the ninth video in an investigative series on Planned Parenthood’s selling of aborted fetal tissue. This video focuses on Advanced Bioscience Resources, Inc. (ABR), a for-profit biotech supply company that has been partnered with Planned Parenthood clinics to purchase human fetal parts for more than a decade.

The video features undercover conversations with Perrin Larton, the Procurement Manager for ABR. Larton is shown describing ABR’s fetal tissue harvesting practice to a prospective buyer. “I literally have had women come in and they’ll go in the O.R. and they’re back out in 3 minutes, and I’m going, ‘What’s going on?’ Oh yeah, the fetus was already in the vaginal canal whenever we put her in the stirrups, it just fell out,” she explains of situations where there has been a great enough degree of cervical dilation to procure an intact fetus

“What I hope happens out of [these videos],” says ERLC president Russell Moore, “is not just that we act in public justice and defund Planned Parenthood but also that we start to shape and form consciences to do away with the violence of abortion.”
