In less than a week a second bombshell video has been released by the Center for Medical Progress adding fuel to the firestorm over Planned Parenthood’s role in the sale of fetal remains.
In the course of the video, Dr. Mary Gatter, President of Planned Parenthood’s Medical Directors’ Council, is seen negotiating the price for fetal tissue with an undercover investigator posing as a potential buyer.
“Let me just figure out what others are getting, and if this is in the ballpark, then it’s fine, if it’s still low, then we can bump it up. I want a Lamborghini.”
It was originally argued that the transfer of fetal tissue was legal, so long as any payment for it only cover costs, such as for transportation.
But during the exchange Gatter’s comments refute recent public statements by Planned Parenthood that money it receives for fetuses are used to allay costs, which she admits are non-existent.
Reports have circulated that CMP has as many as 10 more undercover videos waiting to be released which threaten further to embroil Planned Parenthood in arguably the largest abortion scandal in history since the landmark Roe v. Wade decision.
Multiple legislators in both houses of Congress are already circulating bills to completely and immediately end all federal funding of the organization, and pending committee hearings may result in criminal prosecution.
Last year alone, Planned Parenthood received at least $520 million in funding from taxpayer dollars, which comprised nearly half of the group’s overall budget.
That needs to stop.
