The latest video exposé released by the Center for Medical Progress shows StemExpress, which traffics in aborted infants' body parts, may be illegally taking body parts without the consent of the mother.

The law requires that the mother of the aborted child must give consent before the clinic can take the aborted child's body parts. But Holly O'Donnell, former employee at StemExpress, says the business routinely took aborted babies' parts without the mother's consent.

"If there was a higher gestation, and the technicians needed it, there are times they would just take what they wanted. And these mothers don't know," O'Donnell said. "And there's no way they would know. ..."

O'Donnell recounts one time in the Fresno clinic — "the most high-volume clinic we have" — where she prepared a woman for an abortion, whose pre-born child was of a high gestational age. The woman explicitly refused to consent. After the abortion, however, the nurse came in, drew her blood without her consent and also took the aborted child for use in the fetal parts industry.

It is a violation of the law to take any part of the aborted child without the mother's fully informed consent.
