NEW YORK — Undercover videos showing Planned Parenthood trafficking in the organs and limbs of aborted children have exposed an underbelly of the abortion industry that horrifies anyone with a functioning conscience.
On Friday, Sept. 4, at 10 p.m. ET, Fox News will further expose this ghoulish but profitable practice in “Planned Parenthood: Hidden Harvest,” anchored by veteran TV journalist Shannon Bream.
Father Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life and author of the just-released pro-life manifesto Abolishing Abortion, is among the national pro-life leaders who was interviewed for the special report.
“Various polls have shown that many Americans still remain unaware of the profitable after-market in baby parts that line the pockets of abortion providers, including Planned Parenthood,” Father Pavone said.
“This special should be required viewing for every voter and taxpayer in America. The videos recorded by the Center for Medical Progress clearly show that Planned Parenthood illegally alters the abortion procedures it uses to get intact organs, is illegally paid for these organs, and is fully aware that every abortion kills a human being. If these were just ‘the products of conception’ being eliminated, they would not be so profitable.”
Fr. Pavone also noted that this undercover video project “is part of a wider strategy of exposing abortion, which includes exposing not only the procedure itself, but the corruption within the abortion industry.”
Noting that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has said the Senate lacks the votes to defund Planned Parenthood, Father Pavone said “every Senator who lacks the courage to cut off more than $500 million in taxpayer funding needs to be held accountable. That’s why it is so important for people to watch this Fox special, so they are armed with the information they need to urge their elected representatives to stop funding Planned Parenthood.”
“Planned Parenthood: Hidden Harvest” will be rebroadcast at 1 a.m. ET on Saturday, Sept. 5.
