Second Planned Parenthood Video – Exec. Haggles Over Baby-Part Pricing, Wants Lamborghini
< < Go Back
One Planned Parenthood executive might get a Lamborghini — funded by aborted baby parts.
The Center for Medical Progress (CMP) released a second undercover video July 21 showing another Planned Parenthood executive, Dr. Mary Gatter, bartering over prices for aborted baby parts and offering to abort with a “less crunchy technique” to harvest baby “specimens.”
In the video, Dr. Mary Gatter, Planned Parenthood’s Medical Directors’ Council President, met with investigators posing as buyers from a “Fetal Tissue Procurement Company” for lunch on February 6, 2015. When one buyer asked, “What would you expect for intact tissue?” Gatter responded, “Why don’t you start by telling me what you’re used to paying?” Then Gatter, hesitant to throw out a number for baby parts because she didn’t want to “low-ball it,” later suggested “$75 a specimen.” While Gatter stressed, “We’re not in it for the money,” and “The money is not the important thing,” she contradicted herself by following with comments like, “But what were you thinking of?” and, “But it has to be big enough that it’s worthwhile for me.”
The video also featured a conversation about previous baby part deals.
“It was logistically very easy for us, we didn’t have to do anything,” Gatter said in the video. “So there was compensation for this.”
Gatter presented one “little bit of a problem” – harvesting intact fetuses by “violating” their protocol towards patients (“We not doing anything different in our care for you”). But she immediately added, “I wouldn’t object to asking Ian, who’s our surgeon who does the cases, to use an IPAS [manual vacuum aspirator] at that gestational age in order to increase the odds that he’s going to get an intact specimen.”
