Dr. Mary Gatter is the Medical Director of Planned Parenthood. She is known for her comment, “I want a Lamborghini” when discussing payment for her sale of fetal tissue. Gatter is great at haggling over prices for aborted baby body parts.
Currently, she says that each ‘specimen‘ should go for $75. When she was offered $50 per specimen, she was insulted, saying that “was like 12 years ago.”
The sale of these unborn fetuses are classified as ‘specimens’ so that every buyer gets something they can use.
It also helps work around the laws, which do not allow the sale of organs or human tissue, but reimbursement for fetal tissue is legal.
There is a shade back-door business that is going on regarding the sale of fetuses. The money made from the sales are not properly recorded and reported to the government. This is outrageous considering this institution took money from the government to function.
On April 20, 2016, the Panel held a hearing on The Pricing of Fetal Tissue. During the hearing, the Panel examined documents revealing that abortion clinics and Tissue Procurement Businesses (TPBs) may have violated federal law by the payments they collected from the sale of fetal tissue. At the core of the Panel’s investigation is a federal statute, 42 U.S.C. § 289g-2, which prohibits the transfer of any human fetal tissue for valuable consideration. The statute states that reasonable costs include transportation, implantation, processing, preservation, quality control, and storage—none of which it appears the abortion clinics did. Documents also show that payments made by the customer to the procurement business appear to exceed the costs incurred on the procurement business by a factor of 300 to 400 percent.
As CMP notes, contracts and invoices show that biomedical companies Novogenix, StemExpress, and ABR “all made monthly payments to Planned Parenthood based on the number of resalable fetal specimens the wholesalers’ workers could harvest inside the abortion clinics.” “Planned Parenthood told Congressional investigators it kept no contemporaneous records of actual costs for reimbursement under the law,” adds CMP, continuing: The Novogenix contract promises Planned Parenthood Los Angeles $45 “per donated specimen.” Planned Parenthood Los Angeles does over 15,000 abortions every year, but has never publicly admitted how much money they received total under their contract with Novogenix. In December 2016, the Senate Judiciary Committee and the House Select Investigative Panel both referred Planned Parenthood Los Angeles and Novogenix to the FBI and U.S. Department of Justice for further investigation and criminal prosecution.
“The U.S. Department of Justice should take heed of the congressional investigations’ criminal referrals and prosecute Planned Parenthood to the full extent of the law,” urges Daleiden, “and taxpayers must stop being forced to subsidize Planned Parenthood’s criminal abortion empire.”
