Thank You Bobby Jindal For Investigating Planned Parenthood's Human Organ Trafficking

Planned Parenthood Exec discusses killing babies and harvesting human organs


Louisiana Governor, and principled conservative candidate for the Republican nomination for President, Bobby Jindal has announced Planned Parenthood is under investigation in Louisiana after a video surfaced claiming to implicate the organization in a scheme to sell the body parts of infants. "Today’s video of a Planned Parenthood official discussing the systematic harvesting and trafficking of human body parts is shocking and gruesome," said Jindal in announcing the investigation.

The video was produced by the Center for Medical Progress and David Daleiden, and purports to show Planned Parenthood's senior director of medical services discussing the sale of body parts from aborted fetuses. In the video Dr. Deborah Nucatola sits at lunch with actors, who posed as members of a fetal tissue procurement collection company. As Newsweek noted in its coverage of the video, though the sale of body parts of any human is illegal, donating tissue is entirely legal in the United States, so long as there is no profit from it.

In the video, which as Newsweek noted, has been edited, Nucatola discusses body parts and tissue as they are needed for research. "We’ve been very good at getting heart, lung, liver, because we know that, so I’m not gonna crush that part, I’m gonna basically crush below, I’m gonna crush above, and I’m gonna see if I can get it all intact," she is heard saying, though due to editing, the context is not entirely clear.

However, in the video, Dr. Nucatola discusses the price of various baby body parts over lunch with people she believes to be involved in tissue procurement. Among other topics, she mentions what parts are most popular at the moment, including hearts and livers.

As shocking as Nucatola’s callous discussion of the crushing of a living human being is, the establishment media seems more interested in discrediting Mr. Daleiden and the Center for Medical Progress than it is in exploring his charges.

Liberal commentary website Gawker published a (typical) vulgar article by Ashley Feinberg parroting Planned Parenthood’s talking points against the video. More mature establishment news organizations went to great lengths to undermine the credibility of the Center for Medical Progress and David Daleiden without digging into the substance of the charges against Planned Parenthood.

Which brings us back to Governor Bobby Jindal and his decision to investigate Planned Parenthood’s organ harvesting program.

The Western Journalism Center reports that based on what he saw in the video, Jindal announced on Tuesday: “I have instructed Louisiana’s Department of Health and Hospitals to conduct an immediate investigation into this alleged evil and illegal activity and to not issue any licenses until this investigation is complete.” Jindal added: “I am also asking the FBI to assist DHH in investigating this alleged criminal activity by this organization.”

Governor Bobby Jindal was right to launch an investigation – the substance of this video was on its face truly shocking in its depraved discussion of crushing human beings and harvesting their organs. And much as we despise the evil of abortion, we note for the record his measured direction to the Louisiana’s Department of Health and Hospitals which does not pre-judge the outcome of the investigation.

The truth of the charges against Planned Parenthood should stand or fall on a measured and unbiased investigation into whether it profits from trafficking in human organs and Governor Bobby Jindal deserves the thanks of all right thinking people for his willingness to send Louisiana’s Department of Health and Hospitals to follow the facts wherever they lead.
