One week after Planned Parenthood was rocked by video-taped admissions of the harvesting and sale of aborted baby body parts, a new video has surfaced, and this one may be more shocking than the first. In one portion of the video, a top medical officer for Planned Parenthood says she wants a good price for aborted baby remains because, “I want a Lamborghini.”
In the newly released video, which was obtained by the Center for Medical Progress, another top official with Planned Parenthood is caught on camera haggling over the prices of aborted baby parts and admitting that she’ll alter the method of abortion used in order to harvest organs for eventual sale.
“What would you expect for intact tissue?” a prospective buyer of fetal remains asks Dr. Mary Gatter, the medical director for Planned Parenthood Los Angeles, over what appears to be a meal in a public restaurant.
“Why don’t you start by telling me what you’re used to paying?” Gatter replies.
At the time the video was filmed, in February of 2015, Gatter was serving as the president of the Planned Parenthood Medical Directors Council.
Gatter and the prospective buyer go back and forth negotiating on the price of aborted fetal remains. At one point in the video, Gatter says she doesn’t want to be the first person to name a price, because “the person who throws out the figure first is at a loss.”
The prospective buyer keeps pushing, and eventually Gatter names her price.
“Okay. $75 a specimen,” Gatter says emphatically.
When the buyer interjects that Gatter’s price is “way too low,” Gatter pushes back.
“I was going to say $50,” she replied. “Because I’ve been in places that did $50, too.”
Gatter also states in the video that Planned Parenthood is willing to alter its method of abortion in order to preserve so-called “intact specimens,” or organs, of aborted babies.
“I wouldn’t object to asking Ian, who’s our surgeon who does the cases, to use an IPAS at that gestational age in order to increase the odds that he’s going to get an intact specimen,” Gatter admits.
Gatter also said that while it is clearly a “violation of protocol” to alter the medical procedure used on a patient for the purposes of harvesting organs, she views those that as a “specious little argument” against the process.
Later in the video, Gatter and the prospective buyer finally agree on a price for aborted fetal remains.
“But you know, the money is not the important thing for me,” Gatter says after agreeing to a price of $100. “But it has to be big enough that it makes it worthwhile for me.”
“Let me just figure out what others are getting, and if this is in the ballpark, then it’s fine,” Gatter says. “If it’s still low, then we can bump it.”
“I want a Lamborghini,” Gatter concludes.
Although abortion activists decried last week’s video, in which top Planned Parenthood abortion doc Deborah Nucatola is filmed sipping wine as she lists prices for the body parts of aborted babies, as a “hoax,” the nation’s largest abortion provider did not dispute the authenticity of the video.
The trafficking of human organs has been a federal crime in the U.S. since 1984. In 2011, a Brooklyn man was convicted for brokering the sale of human kidneys on the black market.
In the first video, which came out last week, Nucatola specifically mentions the popularity of intact livers harvested from healthy and viable babies who were aborted by Planned Parenthood.
“I’d say a lot of people want liver,” Nucatola tells the prospective buyers over lunch. “Some people want lower extremities too, which, that’s simple. That’s easy. I don’t know what they’re doing with it, I guess if they want muscle.”
In a statement released last week Planned Parenthood refused to apologize for the substance of Nucatola’s remarks regarding her deliberate harvesting and trafficking of body parts from unborn children. Instead, the organization apologized only for the “tone” of her remarks.
