During the meeting, Nucatola says she tells patients they can donate their aborted children’s tissue for science, which allows them to do “this extra bit of good in what they do.” She also remarks about the Planned Parenthood affiliates, “everyone has been looking to do this,” and that women seeking abortions “know that this is something that they can do.” “There is a demand,” she says.

An undercover video published this week by a group called the Center for Medical Progress exposes how Planned Parenthood and its affiliates sell organs and tissue from aborted fetuses. The video shows a lunch meeting between two citizen-journalists with the Center, posing as employees of a tissue procurement firm, and Dr. Deborah Nucatola, Senior Director of Medical Services for Planned Parenthood. According to its website, the Center for Medical Progress is an advocacy group dedicated to “monitoring and reporting on medical ethics and advances.”
