The Sale of Baby Body Parts

Planned Parenthood Harvests and Sells the Body Parts of Aborted Babies!

Priests for Life has known for some time of the grisly trade in baby parts taking place in abortion facilities throughout the nation. Through the efforts of our friends at Life Dynamics, Inc., the details of this trade came to light many years ago. You may obtain from Life Dynamics (1-800-401-6494) copies of the actual order forms used. Some of the forms request that there be no abnormalities. Many mistakenly think that abortions in later stages of pregnancy are performed only in cases of fetal abnormality.

Fetal tissue wholesalers are companies which place employees in abortion clinics to harvest tissue, limbs, organs, etc. from aborted babies. This material is then shipped to researchers working for universities, pharmaceutical companies and government agencies. Although it is against federal law to sell human tissue or body parts, these organizations have devised a system to circumvent this restriction. Technically, all fetal material they harvest is "donated" to them by the clinics. However, they do pay a "site fee" to the clinics for the right to access the tissue. The tissue is then "donated" to the researchers who in turn pay the wholesalers for the cost of retrieval. Profit is realized by the wholesalers' ability to set their own retrieval fees.

Priests for Life is helping to lead the way in exposing to the public undercover videos showing new evidence that Planned Parenthood harvests and sells the body parts of unborn children (#ppsellsbabyparts). Priests for Life is grateful to our colleagues at the Center for Medical Progress for doing the undercover work that has brought forward this new evidence.

The sale of body parts is against federal and state law.

Priests for Life first came to know of the sale of baby body parts in the late 1990's through our close collaboration with Mark Crutcher and Life Dynamics, which did the undercover work that first exposed this practice.

Join us in the movement to hold Planned Parenthood accountable, to stop the sale of body parts, and to end abortion itself.

Watch the undercover videos below.

A Select Investigative Panel on Infant Lives was established in October 2015 by H. Res. 461 as a result of these videos.
