Today the Center for Medical Progress released another video containing damning testimony about the Planned Parenthood body parts-for-profit scandal. The 10 minute video contains more testimony from Holly O’Donnell, a former StemExpress procurement tech whose previous testimony threw into full relief just how far Planned Parenthood was willing to sink to turn a profit.

The newly released footage features details about how Planned Parenthood customizes the procedure to ensure that late-term abortions produce intact fetal remains—which are much more valuable than the sum of parts taken piece by piece. It also includes outside images (which are graphic and heartbreaking, so be prepared) showing what a 19-20 week fetus looks like outside the womb.

Watch the whole thing. (Things get incredibly graphic at the 6 minute mark.)

LifeNews describes what Holly saw:

“‘I want to see something kind of cool,’” O’Donnell says her supervisor asked her. “And she just taps the heart, and it starts beating. And I’m sitting here and I’m looking at this fetus, and its heart is beating, and I don’t know what to think.”

The San Jose Planned Parenthood does abortions up to 20 weeks of pregnancy. Referring to the beating heart of the aborted fetus, O’Donnell remarks, “I don’t know if that constitutes it’s technically dead, or it’s alive.”

The Center for Medical Progress alleges that Planned Parenthood is likely breaking federal laws requiring that appropriate medical care and treatment be given to babies who survive abortions. State and federal law require that the same treatment be given to an infant born-alive after an abortion as to a normally delivered baby (1 U.S.C. 8, CA Health and Safety Code 123435). California law also prohibits any kind of experimentation on a fetus with a discernible heartbeat (CA Health and Safety Code 123440).

Let me poke at this thing and watch its heart beat! Who are these people? It gets worse. At about the 6 minute mark, Holly describes how she was instructed to harvest the brain of the baby whose heart was all-too-recently beating—by cutting through the baby’s face.

What makes this video (and others like it) truly terrifying is the sterile environment Planned Parenthood and StemExpress have created for their combined horror show. According to Holly, she saw an abortion, a heartbeat, and then a pair of surgical scissors slicing through mouth and nose and forehead.

A heartbeat.

The ensuing investigation will of course be damning, but in this moment, what we’re left with is coherent testimony from a visibly shaken woman who admits having played a part in Planned Parenthood’s barbarism. What she describes should horrify you, even outside the scope of what is legal, or ethical, and what is not.

We’ll keep you updated on the investigation.
