The Center for Medical Progress has released another video revealing that Planned Parenthood officials were worried about the media and legal troubles if their organ-trafficking scheme was revealed.
We have independent colleagues who generate a fair amount of income doing this,” Deb VanDerhei, the national director for the Consortium of Abortion Providers at PPFA. “Obviously we would have a huge P.R. issue, by doing this,” she said while sipping a pint of beer at a party.
VanDerhei wasn’t the only Planned Parenthood official who was concerned about the image problem associated with harvesting and selling aborted baby parts.
“This could destroy your company and us, if we don’t time those conversations correctly,” said Dr. Vanessa Cullins, vice president for external medical affairs for PPFA.
It’s clear that officials all the way to the top were concerned about the bad press, and intentionally did not create a set of guidelines at the national organization to intentionally distance themselves from organ-harvesting.
VanDerhrei explains, during what looks like a conference, that Planned Parenthood officials at the national level of the organization were worried about implementing a policy for compensation. She explains that the organization doesn’t have a national policy for how clinics should handle procuring organs. The lack of guidelines is clearly an intentional measure to keep distance between the national organization and the organ-trafficking at a more localized level.
“Nothing is written. There’s nothing in stone,” Dr. Deborah Nucatola said in what appears to be footage from the first video CMP released on Planned Parenthood’s organs-for-cash scheme. “Folks will ask the national office questions, and we certainly have answers to those questions, but we don’t have a policy per se and that’s by choice.”
