FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
NATIONAL ABORTION FEDERATION SUGGESTS “GROUP PURCHASING PROGRAM” FOR FETAL PARTS COMPANY, PAYMENTS “A WIN-WIN” FOR CLINICS
Planned Parenthood-allied NAF Coordinated Payments with Planned Parenthood, Took Money from StemExpress, Suing Investigative Journalists to Suppress Tapes
SAN FRANCISCO, Feb. 8–Previously unreleased covert video of representatives of the National Abortion Federation shows the Planned Parenthood-allied group suggesting a “group purchasing program” to supply aborted fetal tissue to buyers and encouraging them to exhibit at its annual meeting. NAF is currently seeking to permanently enjoin The Center for Medical Progress from releasing any footage obtained at its annual meetings in 2014 and 2015.
The new footage shows NAF’s Training & Education representatives, responsible for planning the organization’s abortion trade shows, in conversation with actors posing as representatives of a start-up company to harvest and sell aborted fetal body parts.
When the actors explain, “We do donate the fees that we get from our researchers, we give a portion back to the clinics as just a thank you for letting us come in,” one NAF representative replies, “Yeah, it definitely sounds like something some our members would be really interested in.” The second NAF representative affirms this kickback arrangement to split the money from fetal parts as “a win-win” for the abortion clinics.
Both NAF representatives also suggest that the purported fetal body part harvesting company exhibit at NAF’s annual meeting and join NAF’s group purchasing program as an approved vendor for its member abortion clinics: “We have an exhibit hall and then we also have the general conference. But I mean, this is a very great way to talk to our members. We have a group purchasing program through our membership,” says one, “So it seems like this would be a really great option to be able to offer our members as well.”
In other previously released footage, Cate Dyer, the CEO of StemExpress, which advertised “financial profits” for abortion clinics in a brochure to supply fetal tissue, admits her company “gives money” to NAF as well. Deborah VanDerhei, the National Director of the Consortium of Abortion Providers (CAPS) at Planned Parenthood, says, “I have been talking to the executive director of the National Abortion Federation, we’re trying to figure this out as an industry, about how we’re going to manage remuneration,” for fetal parts.
“From the very first moment the National Abortion Federation met purported baby parts traffickers in our investigative journalism study, NAF was eager for them to attend its meetings and pay its member clinics for fetal body parts,” notes David Daleiden, Project Lead at CMP. “Multiple Planned Parenthood executives and the leadership of StemExpress told our investigators many times that NAF was a key partner for fetal tissue harvesting. The fact is, the National Abortion Federation is a key accomplice in Planned Parenthood and StemExpress’ scheme to profit off baby body parts, and for this reason they are desperate to suppress the freedom of the citizen press and cover up the evidence of their illicit dealings.”
