Judicial Watch Takes on the Planned Parenthood Issue

Judicial Watch Sues Obama HHS for Records on Planned Parenthood Connection

You may have seen undercover videos by investigators with the Center with Medical Progress (CMP) featuring Planned Parenthood’s Dr. Deborah Nucatola discussing the sale of tissue from aborted human beings and how abortion techniques can be altered to preserve intact human organs and limbs for sale.
Over a glass of wine and casual lunch conversation caught in the undercover video, Nucatola, senior director of medical services at Planned Parenthood, let slip how inhuman, cruel and soulless her organization is when it comes to human life. It was back on July 25, 2014, that Nucatola made comments to undercover investigators posing as representatives from a human biologics company looking to purchase human body parts. Nucatola also describes the gruesome process through which abortionists operate to preserve specific fetal body parts. An undercover video entitled: “Planned Parenthood Uses Partial-Birth Abortions to Sell Baby Parts” has gone viral thanks to the Center for Medical Progress’ good work.

Following up on public interest in this truly disturbing scandal, Judicial Watch just filed a federal lawsuit here in DC for contracts between the Health and Human Services (HHS) Office of Population Affairs and Nucatola for her paid work on the 2014 government report “Providing Quality Family Planning Services” (Judicial Watch v. U.S. Department of Health & Human Services (No. 1:15-cv-01697)).

The Left does not want you or other Americans to know the truth about the abortion industry’s trafficking in the body parts of human beings killed by abortion. I encourage you to view all the Planned Parenthood videos, but warn you that they are difficult to view and may upset you.

Judicial Watch filed our lawsuit after HHS failed to comply with two simple August 10, 2015, Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests seeking a set of records about the Planned Parenthood doctor:
• Records related to contracts and/or consultancy agreement between the CDC and Dr. Deborah Nucatola regarding her work on the report “Providing Quality Family Planning Services,” released April 25, 2014;

• Records concerning contracts and/or consultancy agreement between the CDC and Dr. Deborah Nucatola regarding her work on the report “Sexually Transmitted Diseases Treatment Guidelines,” released June 5, 2015;

• Records regarding contracts and/or consultancy agreement between the CDC and Dr. Deborah Nucatola regarding her work on the “U.S. Selected Practice Recommendations for Contraceptive Use,” released in 2013.
You’ll see here that the controversial 2014 so-called “Family Planning” report for the Center for Disease Control (CDC) and the Office of Population Affairs recommends that counselors provide abortion options and referrals to pregnant women and teenagers (without parental consent). The report also promotes providing “adolescents,” without parental consent, contraception (which includes potentially abortion-inducing drugs). Planned Parenthood’s fingerprints are all over the “abortions for teenaged girls without telling their parents” Obama administration advocacy document.

That Nucatola is helping set government policy on sensitive life-and-death issues is concerning.

According to CMP, its undercover investigators, posing as buyers for a company seeking fetal tissue, ask Nucatola:
“How much of a difference can that actually make, if you know kind of what’s expected, or what we need?”

“It makes a huge difference,” Nucatola replies. “I’d say a lot of people want liver. And for that reason, most providers will do this case under ultrasound guidance, so they’ll know where they’re putting their forceps. The kind of rate-limiting step of the procedure is calvarium. Calvarium-the head-is basically the biggest part.”

Nucatola explains, “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.”

“And with the calvarium, in general, some people will actually try to change the presentation so that it’s not vertex,” she continues. “So if you do it starting from the breech presentation, there’s dilation that happens as the case goes on, and often, the last step, you can evacuate an intact calvarium at the end.”
The undercover videos raised questions about whether Planned Parenthood was illegally profiting from the sale of the fetal tissue and violating other laws, such as the federal ban on partial birth abortions.

For the record, there is no doubt about the authenticity of the undercover videos. As the Daily Signal has reported, a forensic analysis of the videos has already been done that shows they are the real deal:
The analysis was completed by Coalfire, a digital security and forensics firm that has worked on civil and criminal investigations. The firm had access to all audio and video investigative footage recorded by the Center for Medical Progress.

“The Coalfire forensic analysis removes any doubt that the full length undercover videos released by Center for Medical Progress are authentic and have not been manipulated,” said Casey Mattox, senior counsel at Alliance Defending Freedom. “Analysts scrutinized every second of video recorded during the investigation and released by CMP to date and found only bathroom breaks and other non-pertinent footage had been removed.”
The Obama administration is in cover-up mode on how it uses tax dollars to fund and promote Planned Parenthood’s anti-human ideology.

You should be outraged that the Obama HHS won’t even respond to our simple Freedom of Information Act request for taxpayer-funded contracts with one of the nation’s leading abortionists caught red-handed discussing how to preserve the body parts of human beings killed by abortions so that those parts can be sold for higher prices. The Obama gang would rather violate the federal transparency law in order to protect taxpayer funding for activists and groups that traffic in body parts. Does it get any worse in terms of government corruption?
