A fourth video exposé released today by the Center for Medical Progress reveals two explosive pieces of information: first, that Planned Parenthood harvests organs from after-birth abortions (i.e., babies who are delivered intact before they're aborted in the womb); and second, that high-ranking staff are engaged in covering up what they know to be the illegal sale of "fetal tissue."
It involves a protracted interview with Dr. Savita Ginde, Vice President and Medical Director of Planned Parenthood Rocky Mountains, who openly admits to a plan to engage in a conspiracy to cover up the business of, in her words, "selling fetal tissue." According to Ginde, she assures the "buyers" that her attorney is creating legal "layers" to ensure they don't get caught.
Ginde: Because we talked to him in the beginning, you know, we were like, "We don't want to get called on, you know, selling fetal tissue across states. ... So how do we protect ourselves from that?"
Buyer: And you feel confident that they're building those layers, and —
Ginde: I'm confident that our Legal will make sure that we are not put in that situation.
Earlier, the parties engage in a discussion of "intact specimens," i.e., babies who come out fully intact and uninjured. Ginde admits of incidents when babies are delivered before doctors have had a chance to abort it.
Ginde: Intact is probably less than 10 percent.
Buyer: Less than 10 percent.
Ginde: Sometimes, if we get, if someone delivers before we are able to see them for a procedure then we are intact. ... We try for that not to happen.

In the meantime, the Center has been temporarily blocked by a California court from releasing another video exposé of Planned Parenthood. The order was issued Tuesday by the Los Angeles Superior Court, and involves footage taken in a California restaurant in May involving three high-ranking staff of StemExpress, the business trafficking in the sale of fetal organs.
StemExpress describes itself as "a multi-million dollar company that supplies human blood, tissue products, primary cells and other clinical specimens to biomedical researchers around the world" and claims partnering with the business provides "a financial benefit to your clinic." Planned Parenthood is one such partner, and a video exposé released yesterday (now taken down) shows a former StemExpress employee describing the profitable relationship between the two corporations.
David Daleiden, president of the Center, said opponents are using "meritless litigation" to hide an "illegal baby parts trade."
The temporary restraining order will be in effect until a court hearing August 19, where parties will argue for the legality of the footage.
