Fetal-Tissue Procurement Manager: The Baby, ‘It Just Fell Out’

(CNSNews.com) – In the latest undercover investigative video of Planed Parenthood, a tissue procurement manager reveals that in some abortions, particularly with women who’ve had several births, the aborted child just falls out of the birth canal intact, although “the whole point is not to have a live birth.”

The procurement manager, Perrin Larton with Advanced BioScience Resources, also reveals that “most of the time it [the baby] is not intact,” and adds that often the “abdomen is always ripped open” and the organs “just get ripped up,” but when “we have a smooth portion of liver, we think that’s good.” 

Advanced BioScience Resources (ABR) is one of the organizations that acquires human tissue, including that from aborted babies, and provides them to researchers, many of them funded by the National Institutes of Health, which is part of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. 

This is the ninth undercover video to be released by the Center for Medical Progress (CMP). This “video features undercover conversations with Dr. Katharine Sheehan, the long-time medical director of Planned Parenthood of the Pacific Southwest until 2013; Perrin Larton, the Procurement Manager for ABR; and Cate Dyer, the CEO of rival fetal tissue procurement company StemExpress,” said the CMP in a press release

David Daleidin, the lead CMP investigator, said, “In the twisted world of baby parts trafficking from Planned Parenthood abortion clinics, there are few unbroken rules. After the serious admissions in Planned Parenthood’s letter to Congress last week, it is imperative for lawmakers and law enforcement to act decisively to determine the full extent of Planned Parenthood and their proxies’ law-breaking, hold them accountable, and stop the taxpayer funding of these barbaric atrocities against humanity.”

In a long conversation with the undercover “buyers” (actors), Larton discussed late-term abortions.

“[T]hey induce labor most of the time, the fetus is not, uh, so it’s intact because the whole point is that they want these women to be able to hold their babies,” said Larton. “And most of the ones in the third trimester are, they have anomalies not compatible with life. They cannot live. And so they decide –”

The buyer then explains that aborted babies with “anomalies”  are “not what I want for my SCID-hu mouse,” which is a reference to the “humanized mice” that are made, many under NIH grants, with implants of aborted baby tissue to create mice without immune systems for research in such areas as HIV/AIDS.

Larton then states there is a problem in procuring tissue from some abortions because “they don’t come out intact … there’s not closed abdomen. Their whole – it’s always pulled apart.”

“The whole point is not to have a live birth,” says Larton. “And so the doctors have all – unless it’s somebody who has had six pregnancies and six vaginal deliveries.”

“And then it just kind of pops out?” says the buyer.

Larton answers, “Yeah they put lams in and she comes in the next morning and I literally have had women come in and they'll go in the OR, and they're back out in 3 minutes, and I'm going, ‘What's goin' on?’”

 "Oh yeah, the fetus was already in the vaginal canal whenever we put her in the stirrups, it just fell out,” said Larton.

“So you know, because if they've had a lot of births, then that's just what happens. But most of the time it is not intact,” she says.

When that does not happen, Larton explains, “the organs get ripped up.”

But “[w]henever we have a smooth portion of liver, we think that’s good.”

She continued, “I don’t know why, a lot of the times the abdomen presents first and they [abortion doctors] just go in and start pulling,” and that results in the organs and other tissue wanted by researchers gets damaged.

“It really pisses me off! says Larton.  “Yeah, but they’re just there to end the pregnancy.”

Earlier in the video, Dr. Katharine Sheehan, who was the medical director of Planned Parenthood of the Pacific Southwest until 2013, states, “We have already a relationship with ABR.  We’ve been using them for over 10 years, really a long time, just kind of renegotiated the contract. They’re doing the big collections for government-level collections and things like that.”
