A just-released video exposé reveals more damning evidence against Planned Parenthood and its profit off the fetal body parts trade. In the new video, Melissa Farrell, Director of Research of Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast — the abortion giant's largest and most profitable research branch — graphically discusses Planned Parenthood's willingness to "alter the process" (i.e., abortion procedure) in order to produce a more "intact specimen" (pre-born child).

The investigators posing as potential buyers ask if Farrell is willing to change the abortion procedure to produce a more intact baby, and express their willingness to pay higher compensation for this; they also ask how that higher compensation would be worded in the contract in order essentially to cover up the fact that Planned Parenthood is profiting off the procedure. Farrell explains that the compensation can be worded in the contract in such a way that it appears to be paying for extra administrative time, a more complicated procedure, etc.

Buyer: So that our compensation that's higher to you for our specific specimen intact [baby] could be built into that?

Farrell: M-hm. Yeah.

Farrell also repeatedly acknowledges the financial benefit the fetal body trade gives to Planned Parenthood.

Buyer: You can see the benefit of this financially ...

Farrell: M-hm.

Buyer: [S]eeing how there is — it's gold out there. There is a —

Farrell [nodding head in agreement]: Yeah! ...

Buyer: But the financial gain .. to your staff, just knowing this is the end we're going for ...

Farrell: And then, I think everyone realizes, especially because my department contributes so much to the bottom line of our organization here. You know, we're one of the largest affiliates, our research department is the largest in the United States, larger than any of the other affiliates combined.

The buyers are then taken to a back room where they ask to see a "fresh" specimen from that day. The assistant laughs and says, "We had a really long day and they're all mixed up together in a bag."

After the buyers press them for a visual of the specimen's "intactness," the assistant removes a large plastic bag from the freezer and dumps the parts into a glass tray, which reveals dismembered body parts from an 18-week-old unborn child aborted that day. The assistant picks through the various parts and points out the intestines, lungs and other organs. The legs and feet of the child are clearly visible.
