Intact Fetuses. The legal ramifications for Planned Parenthood are expanding as the Director of Research at Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast admits they are able to harvest “Intact Fetal Cadavers”

“If we alter our process, and we are able to obtain intact fetal cadavers… it’s all just a matter of line items” Melissa Farrell – Director of Research, Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast

In this horrifying new video release, undercover investigators meet with employees at the largest and most profitable Planned Parenthood affiliate in Texas; their discoveries are grisly, as they are informed of how profitable the practice of fetal cadaver donation is and shown a 16 week old “specimen”.

Below are a few disturbing facts and quotes revealed in this new video.

Farrell admits their practice of altering the abortion procedure to obtain specific parts needed by researchers and even more disturbingly their ability to produce intact fetal cadavers.

“So if we alter our process… and we are able to obtain intact fetal cadavers, then we are able to make it part of the budget, that any dissections are this, and splitting the specimens into different shipments is this. I mean that’s – it’s all just a matter of line items.”

This raises the question: Are babies being born alive in Planned Parenthood’s clinics and then shipped intact to research facilities? 

Farrell also indicates that the doctors are involved and can “Make it happen” as many have collected their own specimens for research.

Fetal Tissue Donation is profitable to Planned Parenthood.

“And then, I think everyone realizes, especially because my department contributes so much to the bottom line of our organization here.”

Towards the end of the video the undercover researchers are shown samples of the days “specimens” in the Products of Conception Lab.

“Oh, at 20 [weeks], it was a twin, I know what you mean. 20 [weeks] gestational age.”


Abortions performed after 20 weeks are illegal in Texas (Texas Senate bill 5, passed in 2013). Farrell mentions samples up to 22 weeks gestation and in the “Products of Conception” lab they discuss 20 & 22 “weekers”.

“It depends, thymus is really difficult, whenever we do like the 20-, 22 -weekers, we do. We get a lot better -“
