“An eyeball just fell down into my lap, and that is gross!”
“When the skull is broken, that’s really sharp!”
“Let’s just give them all the violence, it’s a person, it’s killing, let’s just give them all that.”
Washington, D.C. – Previously unseen video obtained by David Daleiden and the Center for Medical Progress during the 2014 and 2015 National Abortion Federation conventions was released today showing Planned Parenthood and other abortion industry members describing, in brutal detail, late term abortions in which they tear baby’s limbs’ off in order avoid partial birth abortion, and harvest the organs for sale.
“An eyeball just fell down into my lap, and that is gross!” [laughter from the crowd]
– Dr. Uta Landy, Founder of the Consortium of Abortion Providers (CAPS), Planned Parenthood Federation of America (PPFA)
“I’m like — Oh my God! I get it! When the skull is broken, that’s really sharp!”
– Talcott Camp, Deputy director of the ACLU’s Reproductive Health Freedom Project
“I might ask for a second set of forceps to hold the body at the cervix and pull off a leg or two, so it’s not PBA [partial-birth abortion].”
– Dr. Ann Schutt-Aine, Director of Abortion Services for Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast
“I get a lot of oohs and ahhs from StemExpress. You know, they’re wanting livers…Last week I was in Sacramento, and she said, “I need four intact limbs.” And I said, you want what?”
– Dr. Leslie Drummond, abortionist at Planned Parenthood Mar Monte
The national pro-life group Susan B. Anthony List (SBA List) condemned Planned Parenthood and the abortion industry which has for years tried to hide the nature of its business from the American people.
“The abortion industry has engaged in a mammoth and hideous deception of the American people while all the while clearly knowing the true horror of their inhumanity to vulnerable children. Abortionist Lisa Harris urged her peers, ‘Let’s just give them all the violence, it’s a person, it’s killing, let’s just give them all that.’ Yet, the terror continues. This is the worst, most graphic conversation we have heard from the abortion industry to date. A civilized nation dares not look away from this assault on the core of our character as a people. This behavior is indefensible and must be stopped,” said SBA List President Marjorie Dannenfelser.
“Cecile Richards: I dare you to call these videos ‘deceptively edited’ today. There is no way the incredibly disturbing descriptions in this footage could have been placed in the mouths of senior Planned Parenthood staff and their associates. Dr. Uta Landy, a recipient of Planned Parenthood’s highest award, is heard clearly saying, ‘An eyeball just fell down into my lap.’ Since when do clumps of cells have eyes?”
Dannenfelser called on the U.S. Senate to urgently pass health care reform legislation that, like the House-passed bill and in-line with President Trump’s budget and previous promise, redirects taxpayer funding from Planned Parenthood to community health care centers.
“This is a life or death situation. The new footage underscores the urgent need for Congress to stop the flow of tax dollars to Planned Parenthood. Every day babies die violently at the hands of Planned Parenthood abortionists who describe strategically tearing children apart to sell their individual limbs, liver, and brain. Taxpayers have had enough of forced complicity in these horrors.”
The footage was released by Daleiden’s attorneys, former Los Angeles County District Attorney Steve Cooley and former Los Angeles County Deputy District Attorney Brentford J. Ferreira. The legal group, Steve Cooley and Associates (SCA), has created a media resource page where press can track progress of the case. The page includes additional video evidence of abortion industry brutality: http://stevecooley.com/media/
The health care reform bill passed by the House of Representatives redirects more than 400 million dollars in taxpayer funding away from Planned Parenthood to comprehensive health care centers that outnumber the abortion business at least 20 to one, and it stops the Obamacare abortion expansion by preventing taxpayer funding of health care plans that cover abortion on-demand.
Susan B. Anthony List and its partner super PAC, Women Speak Out spent more than $18 million in the 2016 election cycle, knocking on more than 1.1 million doors in battleground states to defeat Hillary Clinton and maintain a pro-life Senate. SBA List is dedicated to pursuing policies and electing candidates who will reduce and ultimately end abortion. To that end, the SBA List emphasizes the education, promotion, mobilization, and election of pro-life women. The SBA List is a network of more than 465,000 pro-life Americans nationwide.
