‘We Had a Really Long Day, and They’re All Mixed Up Together in a Bag’ — Center for Medical Progress Releases Another Planned Parenthood Video

The Center for Medical Progress has released its latest video, and — brace yourself — it’s brutal:

Much of the video is dedicated to discussions of the higher prices of “intact” fetuses, which are in higher demand. Melissa Farrell, director of research for Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast notes that Planned Parenthood is able to “alter our process” to obtain “intact fetal cadavers” and says, “It’s all just a matter of line items.”

Beginning at roughly the 9:45 mark, the video takes a macabre turn as the undercover reporters ask if there are any “fresh specimens” to look at, and a Planned Parenthood worker bursts into laughter. Another says, “We had a really long day, and they’re all mixed up together in a bag.” But they do display the remains of a 20 week-old twin, picking through the lungs, intestines, and a limb.

This is Planned Parenthood — the taxpayer-subsidized entity that kills children and throws them in bags. And thanks to the infinite wisdom of a few men and women in black robes – rewriting a document they treat as more alive than human babies – this horror show is a “constitutional right.” It is our nation’s greatest shame.
