Fetus with ‘beating heart’ a new low in Planned Parenthood videos

WASHINGTON (The Alabama Baptist) — After a series of videos that have “shocked the consciences” of American viewers, the latest Planned Parenthood exposé posted by the Center for Medical Progress on Aug. 19 hits a new low — it tells the story of a male fetus with a heart still beating in the lab.

“She just taps the heart and it starts beating,” said Holly O’Donnell, a former employee of Stem Express, as she recounts the story of a colleague preparing an intact fetus for his brain to be harvested.

“Since the fetus was so intact, she said, ‘Oh, this is a really good fetus, it looks like we can procure a lot from it. We’re going to procure brain.’”

O’Donnell then describes in stomach-turning detail the process she went through to extract the fetus’ brain — as well as her emotions at being the “only person” who would ever hold that baby.

“That was the moment I knew I couldn’t work for the company anymore,” O’Donnell said.

Stem Express was a partner of Planned Parenthood until it recently cut ties with the embattled organization.

Russell Moore, president of the Southern Baptist Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission, said he hopes the videos will not only bring the defunding of Planned Parenthood but also “shape and form consciences to do away with the violence of abortion.”
