The Center for Medical Progress has released another undercover video of a Planned Parenthood. This time it raises a serious question about the unborn babies and the "altered" process employed to ensure their still developing bodies are obtained intact.

Thus far, CMP has released five secretly taped interviews with Planned Parenthood officials that reveal possible illegal activity in obtaining and selling aborted baby body parts. Video #5 – labeled as having been recorded in early April 2015 – focuses on Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast in Houston with Melissa Farrell, director of research, commenting on the bottom line: money.

"If we alter a process and we are able to obtain intact fetal cadavers, then we can make it part of the budget that any dissections are this and splitting the specimens into different shipments is this," the video has Farrell saying. "I mean, it's all just a matter of line items."

In addition, altering the process to get intact babies appears to violate federal law.

CAUTION: This video contains graphic images that some people may find offensive.


Operation Rescue
president Troy Newman, who is on the board of The Center for Medical Progress, tells OneNewsNow the hidden cameras again recorded very graphic and shocking video.

"It shows the procurement lab where the abortionists are dissecting a baby over 20 weeks old and picking it apart and talking about these organs from a child in such a cavalier way [that] I think it just repulses even the most casual viewer," he states.

Newman also notes that if the procedure to deliver an intact baby is altered to dissect for parts in the second trimester of pregnancy, a question arises as to whether the baby is born alive – and if so, whether abortionists kill the baby or allow the baby to be set aside and die unattended.

The Associated Press reports that Texas Governor Greg Abbott describes this latest video as "repulsive and unconscionable" - and that Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton, who is leading a state investigation of Planned Parenthood prompted by the previous videos, calls this latest installment "simply appaling."
