Planned Parenthood denies women ultrasounds to see their babies – they only use it to perform abortions

See it all unfold in the latest undercover video: https://www.facebook.com/liveaction/videos/10154939319673728/

An ultrasound is one of the first encounters a mother has with her baby. She can see her child's heart beat, and monitor her baby's development and health — but Planned Parenthood uses ultrasounds for a very different reason…

Babies in the Womb Feel Pain: Please Support A3452/S2026, the NJ Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act

twenty week baby

 

There is substantial medical evidence that babies in the womb feel pain at a very early stage of gestation.  Thanks to advances in medicine, babies as young as 20 weeks post-fertilization can survive and thrive with appropriate care and treatment.  Experts in the field of Maternal-Fetal medicine routinely administer pain medication as standard medical practice because they recognize these babies as patients. There have been many instances of babies who survived abortions who were left to die or killed by abortionists.  We have to look no further than the Gosnell case in Pennsylvania.

The Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act will protect babies in the womb at 20 weeks and older who are capable of feeling pain and ensure that babies born alive during an abortion will be given the same proper life saving medical care given to premature infants.  Babies in the womb experience excruciating pain during an abortion.  A recent video from a former abortion provider, Dr. Anthony Levatino, explains how these abortions are done in this video  (Warning:  viewing content may be disturbing for some.)

Take Action Now!

We are happy to report that A3452/S2026, the NJ Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act has been introduced in the NJ Legislature.  We thank the sponsors of this bill for recognizing the horrific practices of the abortion industry, who callously and with depraved indifference to human life, brutally and routinely end the lives of innocent babies in the womb and endanger the lives of women.  This bill is modeled after H.R. 36, the Federal bill by the same name. Passing this legislation is part of the 2020 Project, a collaborative effort by pro-life groups in NJ to protect pain capable babies.  For more information on this initiative, please visit www.babiesinthewombfeelpain.com

Please go to the www.njrtl.org Legislation page and Take Action here on this legislation. It’s time we protect babies in the womb capable of feeling pain.

What do medical experts say about whether babies in the womb feel pain?

We are obligated to protect the undefensible,” stated Dr. Colleen A. Malloy, who teaches in the Neonatology division at Northwestern University’s Feinberg School of Medicine. Testifying before the United States Senate Judiciary Committee on Tuesday, March 15, 2016,  Dr. Malloy said that advances in technology show the “viability” of human life at an earlier age than previously believed.

A child definitely feels pain at 20 weeks, testified Dr. Malloy, and it is certainly “viable.” Because of technological advancements “we have pushed back the gestational age” of when an unborn child “can be resuscitated and resuscitated successfully,” she said.

These children “are moving, reacting, and developing right before our eyes in the neonatal intensive care unit,” she said.

A June 2009 study of over 300,000 babies by the American Medical Association found that, among children aged 20 to 24 weeks post-conception, they had a steadily higher chance of survival with each passing week, ranging from 10 percent at the beginning to 85 percent at the end.

“Given these survival numbers, the NICU commonly cares for infants born in this gestational age range. We can easily witness their humanity, as well as their experiences with pain,” she testified.

The standard of care for NICUs requires attention to and treatment of neonatal pain,” she said. “There is no reason to believe that a born infant will feel pain any differently than that same infant if he or she were still in utero.”

“I could never imagine subjecting my tiny patients to a horrific procedure such as those that involve limb detachment or cardiac injection.”

Dr. Kathi Aultman, a retired gynecologist, said she had performed both first and second trimester abortions, had an abortion herself, and has a cousin who is an abortion survivor.

After performing second-trimester abortions, she recounted how she had to examine the remains of the unborn child and found “perfectly-formed organs.” While she worked in the neonatal intensive care unit by day and in an abortion clinic by night, her conscience began to be troubled by the fact that she was intent on saving babies in the NICU who were the same age as those being aborted in the clinic.

NJRTL Responds to Star Ledger Editorial: Fetal Tissue Isn’t Needed to Cure Diseases

Fetal tissue isn’t needed to cure diseases

Fetal tissue isn’t needed to cure diseases

The Star-Ledger’s editorial regarding fetal tissue and defense of Planned Parenthood relies on broad, unsupported claims that fetal tissue is needed to help cure certain diseases and illnesses. However, your presumptions rely on antiquated science. Nothing usable for patients has come from the research you cite. Current, progressive alternatives such as induced pluripotent stem cells provide an unlimited source of cells, which can be produced from tissue of any human being, without harm to the individual donor, and with the ability to form virtually any cell type for study or potential clinical application. Stem cells from umbilical cord blood also show significant potential, but also have unique advantages for clinical applications and are already treating patients for numerous conditions. These are ethical, viable alternatives to using body parts from aborted babies.

You are correct that the imagery of an unborn baby on the video makes this a volatile subject, with one distinction. The babies in these videos did not die peaceful, natural deaths; they were deliberately and brutally crushed, dismembered and sliced apart for their brains, hearts, livers, pancreases and other organs. The fetal tissue you cite in those studies has been obtained in many cases from unborn babies at stages where fetal surgery is now used to correct anomalies in the womb and save lives, and at stages where science now demonstrates that unborn babies at these stages can feel pain. We should all agree that this inhumane and callous treatment of innocent human beings must end, and no organization that participates in these types of atrocities should be funded by taxpayers.

Marie Tasy is executive director of New Jersey Right to Life.

8th Video Released. Warning: Some Viewers may find the content disturbing

This video shows Cate Dyer, CEO of Stem Express discussing baby body part procurement with undercover investigators. Dyer calls Planned Parenthood “a volume institution” and admits they handle a number of “intact cases”; i.e., whole bodies of aborted babies, which she says they “have done a lot of.” She also said they “ship those (intact cases) back to our lab in its entirety.” She also admits that contamination is an issue, including yeast contamination. Dyer also calls the problem with bacteria “rampant” and hints that many of the clinics shouldn’t even be in business. Dyer is asked what would make her happy, and she says, “50 livers a week and then goes on to explain “it’s volume for us, we still need more. A lot of volume is what we do.” She also says that they don’t expect to be hitting capacity for the next 10 years. When asked if she felt it was not profitable for abortion clinics to procure the baby body parts, she said “I haven’t seen that.” She also says the lab technicians “freak out” and have “meltdowns” when they see the baby body parts, with some requesting that the hands and feet not be attached. She also admits that this is why a lot of researchers are getting away from using baby body parts and are instead using adult-human sampling. In speaking about neural tissue (i.e., brain tissue), she said it is “insanely fragile” and the “hardest to ship” and admitted that is why they procure and ship the whole calvarium (head). This is the video Stem Express did not want viewers to see and it is no wonder. Please continue to spread the word and educate others about these videos. Thank you.

New Jersey’s Two U.S. Senators Menendez and Booker Vote No on S.1881, Bill to Defund Planned Parenthood. Action Needed!

baby body parts
On August 3, the U.S. Senate failed to garner the 60 votes needed to pass S.1881, a bill to defund Planned Parenthood. The vote tally can be found below. The bill was introduced as a response to the videos which show Planned Parenthood top officials discussing the sale of aborted baby body parts to undercover investigators. Many of the videos can be viewed on NJRTL’s website. Leaders in the U.S. Senate have vowed to bring the bill back at a later date. Both of NJ’s two U.S. Senators shamefully voted No on this bill. Please contact them and express your disapproval with their vote and urge them to support the bill when it comes back again for a vote. Also contact your Member of Congress and urge them to vote to defund Planned Parenthood.
