Unsealed invoices from 2012 confirm that Planned Parenthood was paid nearly $25,000 by a fetal tissue procurement agency, StemExpress, for aborted baby body parts. Planned Parenthood has denied the accusations.
According to pro-life advocacy group Live Action, invoices from Planned Parenthood to StemExpress were posted online by the Center for Medical Progress (as part of an ongoing investigation into the abortion giant, show exchanges of money for “blood” and “POCs” or products of conception.
According to The Daily Caller, invoices from July, August and September 2012 show that Planned Parenthood Mar Monte in California billed StemExpress $24,940 for fetal organ samples and maternal blood. Furthermore, StemExpress and Planned Parenthood reportedly agreed on a renewable contract for body parts in April 2010. The agreement stipulated that that same Planned Parenthood location would sell blood samples to StemExpress for $10 each and specimen “determined in the clinic to be usable” at $55 each. Additionally, the abortion giant would be reimbursed for “reasonable costs” related to the sales.
The contract defined the term products of conception as “any fetal organ or other fetal or placental material taken from a human uterus during an abortion.” A fetal organ is defined as “the human kidney, heart, lung, pancreas, bone marrow, cornea, eye, bone, and skin, or any subpart thereof and any other human organ or any subpart thereof as from a fetus,” in the contract. In the absence of a termination, the contract stated that both companies would continue “for further successive terms of one year thereafter.”
In a statement provided to Live Action News, Center for Medical Progress pointed out, “Planned Parenthood’s contracts and invoices are proof positive that their payments were tied solely to the marketability of aborted baby body parts.”
