In the summer of 2015, a pro-life organization called the Center for Medical Progress (CMP) began releasing secretly recorded videos that revealed Planned Parenthood and tissue procurement company employees casually discussing harvesting and selling the body parts of aborted babies.
On some occasions, CMP founder David Daleiden and colleague Sandra Merritt posed as potential tissue buyers.
In the video, Holly O’Donnell, former StemExpress procurement technician, recounts witnessing what another technician did to a baby “delivered” intact at Planned Parenthood. “Jessica” called O’Donnell over and told her she wanted her to “see something kinda cool. It’s kinda neat!”
O’Donnell looked down, “flabbergasted,” at an intact aborted baby. A boy. The woman taps the baby’s heart, and it begins to beat. “It had a face,” O’Donnell said. “It wasn’t completely torn up. And its nose was very pronounced. It had eyelids and its mouth was pronounced. And then, since the fetus was so intact, [Jessica] said, (emphasis added) “Okay, this is a really good fetus and it looks like we can procure a lot from it. We’re going to procure a brain.”
Oh, wow! Isn’t that awesome? What happens to the minds of people who do this for a living?
After the video series exposé, StemExpress ended its contract with Planned Parenthood and denied the videos were authentic. But StemExpress remains under fire. The company is under federal investigation.
BREAKING: When @StemExpress’ Doe 12 is asked about the head of a baby being attached to the body upon tissue procurement, Doe 12 says the photos from CMP are accurate and show that the heads are sometimes attached and sometimes are not attached to other parts of body.

An anonymous StemExpress CEO recently admitted that it harvested and sold aborted babies’ brains and beating hearts to researchers. An excerpt:
The discovery came when the CEO, named Doe 12 for privacy, was questioned during hearings for undercover investigators David Daleiden and Sandra Merritt. The duo journalists, who represent the Center for Medical Progress, recorded conversations with top executives and clinicians from Planned Parenthood about selling aborted baby parts four years ago. StemExpress was one of the alleged brokers.
Doe 12 also admitted on the stand that the company sold beating fetal hearts to Stanford University. Researchers studied the hearts using the Langendorff perfusion, a technique that requires a beating heart.
