If tissue donation is so altruistic, as Planned Parenthood droningly insists, why is every party involved in fetal body part harvesting with Planned Parenthood so frantic to gag anyone who dares to talk about the “important” work they do for “medical science?” Maybe profit plays a bigger role in fetal tissue transactions than they would like us to believe. And maybe, to ensure that precious profit, they will engage in illegal activity before, during, and after abortion.
Legal action taken against the Pro-Life whistle-blowers at the Center for Medical Progress (CMP) thus far includes two restraining orders prohibiting the organization from releasing certain footage. One on account of StemExpress, a fetal tissue procurement company, and the other on account of the National Abortion Federation (NAF, which held two conferences for abortionists at which CMP recorded undercover conversations). Both groups have succeeded in gagging CMP from speaking the truth about their day-to-day operations. The orders are temporary and, according to David Deleiden, who pioneered the campaign to expose Planned Parenthood’s illegal operations, utterly “meritless.”
The cause of StemExpress’ fear of Deleiden’s footage is clear: StemExpress has a documented history of felonious activity replete with footage of one of their own former employees, Holly O’Donnell, whistle-blowing on their illegal operations within Planned Parenthood. The company so blatantly disregards the law that they disseminated advertisements, endorsed by a Planned Parenthood abortionist, which outline the financial profit that fetal tissue procurement can yield for abortion mills like Planned Parenthood. This profit is unequivocally contrary to federal law. But StemExpress has more to fear than documented evidence that they engage in the felony of buying and selling fetal body parts.
According to Deleiden, StemExpress is working to suppress the CMP from releasing further footage because the group possesses a recorded meeting in which top StemExpress officials admit that they obtain the intact bodies of preborn children. As Deleiden explains, feticidal agents cannot be used to kill preborn children whose cadavers will be used in scientific research because such chemicals render fetal tissues and organs unusable. Possibly the only explanation for the procurement of intact fetuses being sent to StemExpress is that these children were born alive. This would be another heinous violation of federal law, which prohibits abortionists from delivering live children. Deleiden explains:
StemExpress is attempting to suppress a specific video recording of a meeting with their top leadership admitted that they sometimes get fully intact fetuses shipped to their laboratory from the abortion clinics that they work with. And that could be prima facie evidence of born-alive infants. So that’s why they’re trying to suppress that video tape and they’re very scared of it.
StemExpress founder and CEO Cate Dyer told her alma mater, Sacramento State University, that her interest in diverting from her path towards becoming an ER surgeon and instead starting a tissue procurement company stemmed from the fact that she was good at biology, and even better at business:
“At some point,” Dyer says, “I started to put it all together. I realized that I was good at business. I had sales jobs through college [and] was good at that. I had a gift for gab. I wanted to take my love for medicine and my passion around that and patient care and helping people – and do something really positive with it. It’s been so exciting for me to create this company.”
Dyer must now work to salvage her company’s image from the damage inflicted by the CMP, but that may be easier said than done. Holly O’Donnell’s already-released testimony is damning, but the footage we expect to see once the CMP overcomes legal hurdles will undoubtedly wreak havoc on the company. For now, a Los Angeles County Superior Court judge has granted StemExpress a temporary restraining order on the tenuous grounds that the CMP violated an anti-wiretapping law. However, the CMP preempted such retaliation during the acquisition of the footage, suggesting that in a matter of time the restraining order will have to be removed, and the public will be given access to the footage.
