In today’s video installment from the Center for Medical Progress, Holly O’Donnell struggles to tamp down her emotions as she recalls her worst experience at Planned Parenthood while working as a procurement technician for StemExpress.
O’Donnell recounts a day at the Planned Parenthood abortion clinic in San Jose, California, that will forever haunt her memories.
O’Donnell was training with another StemExpress employee identified only as “Jessica” when a baby boy was delivered intact. The baby had been selected for organ harvesting.
O’Donnell remembers the incident clearly:
So then I hear her call my name. ‘Hey, Holly! Come over here. I want you to see something kinda cool. It’s kinda neat!’ So I’m over here and – the moment I see it I’m just flabbergasted. . .
And she’s like, “Okay, I want to show you something.” So she has one of her instruments and she just taps the heart and it starts beating. And I’m sitting here, and I’m looking at this fetus, and its heart is beating and I don’t know what to think. . .
It had a face. It wasn’t completely torn up. And its nose was very pronounced. It had eyelids and its mouth was pronounced. And then, since the fetus was so intact, [Jessica] said, “Okay, this is a really good fetus and it looks like we can procure a lot from it. We’re going to procure a brain.”
O’Donnell then describes how Jessica began the harvesting process by cutting through the lower jaw and into the face with scissors, then instructed O’Donnell to finish cutting through the face so she could extract the brain.
“I’m thinking, ‘No, I don’t want to do this,'” O’Donnell recalls.
“It’s hard to imagine how anyone could even give such an order and what kind of callous and depraved subculture must exist at Planned Parenthood that this kind of horrific atrocity could be remotely considered ‘cool’ or ‘neat,'” said Troy Newman, President of Operation Rescue and Board member for the Center for Medical Policy. “Kermit Gosnell is serving life in prison for cutting the backs of babies’ necks with scissors. Now, at Planned Parenthood, live babies are murdered using scissors to harvest brains for ‘research’ – as if the ‘research’ part makes it all okay. Well, it doesn’t. Jessica and the rest of the abortion crew at Planned Parenthood should be in a prison cell right next to Gosnell!”
The CMP video shows incriminating clips of Planned Parenthood and procurement company officials telling of intact, sometimes live births and the illegal altering of abortion procedures for the purpose of organ harvesting.
“Today’s video is evidence that babies are being born alive during abortions at Planned Parenthood and then intentionally killed for their organs. This is no less than cold-hearted, premeditated murder,” said Newman. “Furthermore, there is evidence that Planned Parenthood abortionists alter procedures to ensure the organs can be harvested. This is also a crime. We call on authorities in San Jose, Houston, and everywhere else that Planned Parenthood is selling baby parts to immediately open murder investigations and swiftly bring those involved in killing born-alive babies to justice.”
Meanwhile, Holly O’Donnell left us with one final thought.
“It’s just really hard knowing that you’re the only person who’s ever going to hold that baby. . . I think that it’s a wasted life, and it’s sad that so many people view it as a mistake,” O’Donnell said. “You know, ‘cuz it’s not. I mean, life isn’t a mistake. Getting pregnant – it can be an accident, but it’s not a mistake.”
