Abortion was a contentious issue long before Roe v. Wade, when the Supreme Court made on-demand abortions widely legal. Since then, political tensions have only escalated. If we continue to hold the pro-life vs. pro-choice debate hostage as a political issue, we will get nowhere.

A new video appears to show a Planned Parenthood executive discussing the sale of organs from aborted babies. As part of their investigation into the practice, The Center for Medical Progress secretly taped the conversation between Dr. Deborah Nucatola, Planned Parenthood’s senior director of medical services, and an investigator posing as a researcher wanting to buy fetal body parts.
In the video, Nucatola discusses what body parts researchers typically want, how doctors procure them and how much they might sell for. “I’d say a lot of people want liver,” she says. “And for that reason, most providers will do this case under ultrasound guidance, so they’ll know where they’re putting their forceps ... We've been very good at getting heart, lung, liver.”
Nucatola admits that abortion providers will sometimes move the fetus into breech orientation so as to preserve more intact body parts, which is a mark of illegal partial-birth abortion.
