Description: As we expected, Planned Parenthood is doing its best to avoid the substantive issues raised in the recent undercover video that shows their Senior Director of Medical Services, Dr. Deborah Nucatola, acknowledging that PP affiliates do receive money for aborted fetal body parts.
They are hiding their unethical behavior by holding up the figleaf of altruism and humanistic benevolence.
There are at least three serious issues here.
1. PP’s consent form does not inform the mother that they will be receiving money for the dead baby’s body parts.
2. PP violates the ethics of patient care by altering the abortion procedure for reasons other than the well being of the patient, the mother. This is on a par with treating a dying person differently because you know you are going to harvest their organs. The objective is always the well being of the patient not how you can use the patient for some other objective.
3. The national headquarters of PP are fully aware, support and approve this practice of their affiliates.
