Unsealed video clips of the testimony of officials from Planned Parenthood and others in the abortion industry reveal disturbing details of infants surviving abortion and either being left to die or having their organs harvested.

The Center for Medical Progress (CMP) released a second video Tuesday from unsealed deposition testimony of abortion industry officials. The depositions are in connection with Planned Parenthood Federation of America v. Center for Medical Progress in the U.S. District Court of the Northern District of California.

Judge William Orrick III, an Obama appointee, who, in May, ruled in the case in favor of Planned Parenthood, barred much of this evidence and testimony from the jury.

The new video contains testimony from Perrin Larton, the procurement manager of biomedical company Advanced Bioscience Resources, Inc. (ABR), which harvests the organs and fetal tissue in Planned Parenthood abortion facilities in California and then resells them to taxpayer-funded researchers in the United States.

In the video, Larton testified about aborted babies, “They just, sometimes, they fall out” of the mother “once every couple of months” when a woman delivers an entirely intact fetus.

Larton also testified that the fetus is still intact when she receives it in her lab and nothing is “done to the fetus” by the abortion clinic before handing it over to ABR.

Asked if the intact fetuses that “fall out” of the woman have a heartbeat, Larton testified, “It would depend,” adding, “I can see hearts that are not in an intact P.O.C. [product of conception, the term the abortion industry uses for fetus or baby] that are beating independently” after they are removed from the fetus.

The video also features the sworn testimony of Dr. Deborah Nucatola, who previously served as Planned Parenthood Federation of America’s (PPFA) senior director of medical services. Nucatola appeared in the now familiar first undercover video of the CMP “baby parts” series as she ate a salad and drank wine while discussing how she performs abortions in order to harvest the highest quality unborn baby body parts.

Asked if she “ever had a patient deliver in the operating room a non-viable fetus,” Nucatola, who is still an official in Planned Parenthood’s organization, testified, “I’m sure I have.”

Nucatola defined a “non-viable” fetus as one “that’s not capable of survival.”

Asked how to determine the viability status of a fetus, Nucatola testified, “It depends on where you work,” and added, “the availability of interventions” is one criterion she would use to determine whether a fetus was “capable of survival.”

The sworn testimony of Jon Dunn, CEO of Planned Parenthood of Orange & San Bernardino Counties, is also featured in the video.

He testified he was aware of at least one situation at his Planned Parenthood facility in which a fetus had been born alive during an abortion.

“I know they kept it warm and comfortable for the very brief period that it was alive,” Dunn said. “I don’t think there was even time to call 911.”

“This is something that every obstetrician/gynecologist deals with on rare occasion,” Dunn also testified. “It is their medical judgment what to do in that circumstance.”

Dunn’s facility joined with DaVinci Biosciences and DV Biologics — both biomedical procurement companies that, in 2017, reached a $7.8 million settlement with the Orange County district attorney’s office following allegations they illegally profited from the sale of fetal tissue.

The lawsuit against the companies followed a year of congressional investigation into allegations that Planned Parenthood sold aborted fetal tissue and organs to biomedical companies for profit.

“This settlement seized all profits from DV Biologics and DaVinci Biosciences, which they acquired by viewing body parts as a commodity and illegally selling fetal tissues for valuable consideration,” District Attorney Tony Rackauckas said at the time.

“How long will public authorities permit Planned Parenthood and their associates to sell living children inside and outside the womb and then kill them through organ harvesting?” asked David Daleiden, CMP project lead, in a statement. “The DOJ has vigorously prosecuted the sale of eagle body parts. Surely selling human body parts after cutting them out of an infant with a beating heart is at least as grave of a crime.”

In May, CMP released the first unsealed video testimony of Planned Parenthood officials who testified in depositions, including Nucatola and Dr. Mary Gatter, former Planned Parenthood Los Angeles medical director.

Gatter became well-known, as CMP released its series on Planned Parenthood’s fetal tissue harvesting practices, for her joke at the end of one of the videos that she would like “a Lamborghini” in exchange for the aborted baby body parts.

Planned Parenthood’s latest annual report for the year 2018-2019 revealed the organization performed a record-high number of abortions while it also received record-high taxpayer funding during that period.

The group performed 345,672 abortions, an increase of nearly 13,000 more abortions and four percent over the 332,757 it performed during the year 2017-2018.

In 2018-2019, Planned Parenthood was also on the receiving end of $616.8 million in American taxpayer funds, a 9.4 percent jump from the $563.8 million it received in the year 2017-2018.

“Government health services reimbursements and grants” remains the largest source of income for Planned Parenthood at 37 percent — largely from the Medicaid program — followed by “private contributions and bequests” at 36 percent.

In the year 2018-2019, Planned Parenthood’s total revenue was more than $1.6 billion, and its net assets for the year was nearly $2 billion.

On Friday, less than two years after Planned Parenthood hired its first medical doctor as president in 50 years to attempt to portray it as a “healthcare” organization, the group named Alexis McGill Johnson, a “social and racial justice” activist as its permanent CEO.

“There is no one better to lead us as we work to address the systemic racism that stands in the way of true reproductive freedom than a renowned social and racial justice leader, lifelong political organizer, and a tireless advocate for reproductive rights,” Planned Parenthood tweeted.

However, over the past several weeks, amid violent riots and calls to defund police by Marxist groups such as Black Lives Matter and Antifa, black leaders have asserted it is Planned Parenthood, and not the police, that is the number one killer of the black community.

The White House’s Office of Management and Budget (OMB) may redirect funds from the World Health Organization (W.H.O.) to charitable groups such as Samaritan’s Purse and the Red Cross, the New York Post reported Thursday.

On Tuesday, President Donald Trump ordered a 60-day hold on U.S. funding to the W.H.O., asserting the organization failed to vet information about the novel coronavirus coming out of China, and ultimately covered up the seriousness of its effects because of its friendly relationship with that nation.

The New York Post noted the funds would be redirected to charities, such as the Red Cross, and Christian organization Samaritan’s Purse, led by its president, Rev. Franklin Graham:

An administration official told The Post that efforts were underway to redirect “every single pot of money” from the WHO to other organizations. Large international relief organizations already are in many cases doing similar work, they said.

The administration official said that the White House Office of Management and Budget would send any necessary notifications to Congress when there are decisions to redirect funds, though in some cases that may be unnecessary.

In response to the pandemic, in New York City, Samaritan’s Purse set up a 14-tent, 68-bed emergency field hospital in Central Park, one that is staffed by more than 70 doctors, nurses, and other healthcare workers.

LGBTQ lobbying groups, however, launched an attack on evangelical leader Graham and his outreach organization, accusing him and his group of “putting New Yorkers’ lives on the line” by having Christians who hold to one man-one woman marriage to care for victims of the coronavirus.

Ross Murray, senior director of LGBTQ lobbyists GLAAD Media Institute, wrote on March 31:

I don’t trust Franklin Graham to help those in need in the LGBTQ community. I’ve seen far too many anti-LGBTQ activists like Graham ignore the suffering of LGBTQ people. In this instance, Graham is capitalizing upon a crisis to inflict more pain and suffering on an already marginalized population. He has stated, loudly and proudly, too many times that the LGBTQ community is a threat for me to want to place my life, or the lives of people l love and care about, in his hands.

Graham responded to the attacks on Facebook, explaining that, while Samaritan’s Purse paid staff is asked to subscribe to a statement of faith that includes belief in one man-one woman marriage, the organization has “never asked any of the millions of people we have served to subscribe to anything.”

He continued:

In other words, as a religious charity, while we lawfully hire staff who share our Christian beliefs, we do not discriminate in who we serve. We have provided billions of dollars of medical care and supplies, food and water, and emergency shelter without any conditions whatsoever. Our Christian faith compels us—like the biblical Good Samaritan—to love and serve everyone in need, regardless of their faith or background.

In announcing the hold on U.S. funding for the W.H.O., Trump said, “We spend $500 million a year,” and noted that China only spends $30 million-$40 million annually.

The president said the W.H.O., an agency of the U.N., had participated in “mismanaging and covering up” the spread of the coronavirus around the world.

“The W.H.O. pushed China’s misinformation about the virus, saying it was not communicable, and there was no need for travel bans,” Trump said.

Women who live in America’s suburbs are supporting President Donald Trump’s re-election bid, says a new report at OpenSecrets.org, that shows Trump is benefiting from a surge in large-dollar donations from women in suburbs – more than any Democrat candidate.

While mainstream media are reporting some polls that suggest Trump is losing the support of women, the report by Open Secrets, part of the Center for Responsive Politics, shows the president has over 10,500 large-dollar contributions from women in suburbs, and has received $8,293,135 from them – the largest amount than any of the Democrat 2020 candidates.

“Suburban women, who power a significant electoral battleground, are a key demographic for 2020,” wrote Grace Haley at the research group that tracks money in U.S. politics. “Since Trump’s inauguration, more than 7,000 women in suburban districts have given large-dollar contributions to his campaign. That totals $8 million, the most of all candidates.”

Paul Bedard at the Washington Examiner, drew attention to the Open Secrets report.

He noted that 28 percent of Trump’s “itemized contributions” were from women in 2016.

“For the 2020 election, they are 35 [percent],” Bedard reported.

On paper, Trump ranks fifth in donations from women at $15.1 million, with the leader in donations from women reported from Sen. Bernie Sanders at $17.1 million, followed by Sen. Elizabeth Warren, Mayor Pete Buttigieg, and Sen. Kamala Harris, who have all raised $15 million or more from women, Open Secrets reported.

However, the research group also observed that “Trump’s contributions from women are most certainly higher than $15 million” since the Trump campaign does not report demographic information about its small donors:

Campaigns are not required to itemize donations of $200 or less, so we do not have demographic information about Trump’s small donors giving to his joint fundraising committees with the Republican National Committee, Trump Victory and the Trump Make America Great Again Committee. An estimated 59 percent of Trump’s donations are from small-donors, so Trump’s contributions from women are most certainly higher than $15 million. Trump’s totals are underestimated more than the other candidates. Because Democrats are relying on ActBlue and the Republicans are not relying on the Republican equivalent WinRed as significantly, we only have most (not all) donor demographic data for Democratic small-dollar donors.

Amy Kremer, chairwoman of Women for America First and co-founder and chair of Women for Trump PAC, told Breitbart News it is “no surprise that women are contributing to the president’s campaign” since many women in suburbs have families and children.

“Women are focused on issues that impact our children and our families and President Trump is delivering results,” she said, adding that when women contribute to his campaign “it’s an easy donation when you know what you are going to get in return and this president has followed through on his promises, and his policies have been good for women and their families.”

Open Secrets noted the Trump campaign says there are often more suburban women supporting the president than reported because “the polling data does not account for suburban women who favor Trump but do not feel comfortable publicly saying so.”

Kremer agreed with this statement.

“Not all women who support the President may be vocal about their support, but they are quietly doing their share to ensure another four years of America First with President Trump,” she said.
