Pro-life organizations are calling for investigations and prosecutions after a Planned Parenthood official admitted the abortion group harvests and sells aborted baby parts.
Undercover pro-lifers posed as buyers for a human biologics company that was seeking body parts. What they recorded was sickly details of abortionists harvesting baby organs such as livers, brains and hearts.
With hidden cameras rolling, Dr. Deborah Nucatola, the senior director of medical services for Planned Parenthood, described harvesting the body parts while she munched on a salad and sipped wine.
"I'd say a lot of people want liver," the Planned Parenthood official says in a video recorded last year.
The undercover videos were recorded over a period of months by the Center for Medical Progress, a medical ethics organization.
"Here's an organization that's making millions of dollars a year in profit [according to] their own tax records. They're a billion-dollar, multi-national corporation – and yet we're giving them a million-and-a-half-dollars a day out of taxpayer money and some of it they're using to kill these babies and then making more money by selling the parts of the babies."

Reporting on the undercover video, LifeSiteNews described Nucatola's conversation:
Nucatola said she has “a huddle at the beginning of the day” to determine what fetal body parts consumers are requesting, and which patients that day will have babies from which they will be able to harvest them. Then Planned Parenthood abortionists tailor the procedure to assure they do not destroy the organs, maximizing profitability…
She revealed that, as abortionists are dismembering the child, they decide, “I’m not gonna crush that part. I’m gonna basically crush below, I’m gonna crush above, and I’m gonna see if I can get it all intact.”
"And what that means is they will deliver a baby fully alive and fully intact just to get a perfect heart or liver or brain," Operation Rescue spokesman Troy Newman tells OneNewsNow.
The video proves, he says, that Planned Parenthood officials know the organization is harvesting baby organs and selling them for profit.
"These people are ghouls and it shocks the moral conscience," he says.
Responding to the video, Planned Parenthood claimed that it's donating, not selling, the body parts for research with the permission of abortion patients. But the "buyers" are told by Nucatola (see video above) that specimens cost $30 to $100 each.
Newman also suggests the practice is illegal, because the abortionist must utilize a partial-birth abortion – banned in 2003 - to get the intact baby parts.
LifeSiteNews points out that trafficking in human parts is a felony punishable by 10 years in prison and a $500,000 fine.
The Planned Parenthood doctor says on video that the abortion ban is law "and laws are up to interpretation."
