Planned Parenthood's Planned Murders

The 5 most horrifying revelations in the newest Planned Parenthood video

John Jalsevac 

Sign the petition to defund Planned Parenthood here

Today’s video just might be the most horrifying of the seven videos released by the Center for Medical Progress exposing Planned Parenthood’s practice of harvesting and selling the body parts of aborted babies.

But then again it’s kind of hard to imagine what could be worse than previous videos:like the one showing technicians sorting through the dismembered arms and legs of a 20-week aborted twin, or the other onewhere a technician exclaims “It’s another boy!” while prodding at a “specimen” (So much for the lie that unborn babies are just “blobs of tissue”).

That said, here are the five most horrifying revelations from today’s video. Be warned, it takes a strong stomach to read this, and then to realize that this is actually happening.

1. StemExpress technicians working at a Planned Parenthood clinic harvested the brains of a baby whose heart was still beating.

Yes, you read that correctly.

In today’s video Holly O'Donnell, a former procurement technician at StemExpress, describes how at an abortion facility in Alameda, California, a co-worker named Jessica brought over the most fully developed baby she had ever seen.

“It had a face. It wasn't completely torn up,” she said. “Its nose was very pronounced.”

Then, recalls Holly, “[Jessica] has one of her instruments, and she taps the heart, and it starts beating.”

“I'm looking at this fetus, and its heart is beating,” O'Donnell said in astonishment.

O'Donnell said that after that, Jessica asked her to remove the brains “through the baby's face.”


“I can't even describe what that feels like,” O'Donnell said. “That was the moment I knew I couldn't work for the company anymore...even if it was the cure for some disease.”

2. There are other times when aborted babies are born with beating hearts before organ harvesting.

If only Holly O’Donnell’s experience was an anomaly.

Pro-life activists have long known, from first-hand testimonies by former nurses and abortion workers, that aborted babies are sometimes born alive after botched abortions. But now we have it from the horse’s mouth.

STORY: Graphic shows how astoundingly little Americans really ‘need’ Planned Parenthood

As Dr. Ben Van Handel, Executive Director of Novogenix Laboratories, LLC, admits in today’s video: “So, you know, there are times when after the procedure is done that the heart is still beating.”

In other words: The baby is still alive.

Novogenix is one of the biomedical firms that Planned Parenthood works with to harvest fetal tissue, and then sell it to researchers.

3. Planned Parenthood changes the abortion procedure to obtain “fully intact” aborted babies.

This is totally illegal. But if you’re trying to get quality fetal tissue, you probably don’t want to be tearing the unborn baby apart in his mother’s womb. So Planned Parenthood instead makes adjustments to the abortion to get “fully intact” fetuses – in the process running the risk of babies being born alive.


As Melissa Farrell, Director of Research at Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast, admits: “Yeah, and so if we alter our process, and we are able to obtain intact fetal cadavers, then we can make it part of the budget, that any dissections are this, and splitting the specimens into different shipments is this. I mean that’s, it’s all just a matter of line items.”

READ: This one shot from the latest PP sting video might be the most disturbing thing you see all year

So, what do these “intact fetal cadavers” look like?

Holly O’Donnell describes the moment after she and a co-worker had finished harvesting the brains from a fully intact aborted baby, when she was holding the body of the baby, thinking, “Oh my God, what am I doing.”

“And I take him, and I put him in [the biohazard container], and I remember he got stuck on the lid, and it turned around and its buttocks was in the air, and his two feet were dangling out,” she recalled.

“And I remember having to pick each one of his feet up and put them in the container and close the lid. … It’s just really hard, knowing that you’re the only person who’s ever going to hold that baby. … This could be a lawyer, this could be a fire-fighter, this could be the next president. … I feel like it’s a waste of life. It’s sad that so many people view it as a mistake, because it’s not. Life isn’t a mistake.”

4. The hardest part of the baby to get is the brains. So when the abortionist wants a brain, they will deliver the baby “breach” and only “crush” around the head to kill the baby.

Dr. Deborah Nucatola, Planned Parenthood’s Senior Director of Medical Services, explains the gruesome process of obtaining good-quality fetal brain.

“And with the calvarium [head], in general, some people will actually try to change the presentation [of the fetus] so that it’s not vertex [head-first], because when it’s vertex presentation, you never have enough dilation….to deliver an intact calvarium,” she explains.

“So if you do it from breach presentation, there’s dilation that happens as the case goes on, and often, the last step, you can evacuate an intact calvarium [head] at the end.”


As she explained in a previous video, depending on what body part she wants: “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.”

5. Planned Parenthood knows that if they do abortions without killing the baby first with Digoxin, the baby might be born alive. But they do it anyway, to obtain the best quality specimens.

In a normal later-term abortion, an abortionist will inject the baby’s heart with Digoxin to kill the baby (abortionists call this “ensuring fetal demise”) before delivery.

The problem is that researchers don’t want babies whose organs are filled with poison. They want “clean” specimens. And so we have Perrin Lartin, a “Procurement Manager” for Advanced BioScience Resources, assuring an actor posing as a potential buyer that any specimens they obtain would not be tainted with Digoxin.

The only problem is, if you’re not using Digoxin, you run the risk of a baby born alive. And Planned Parenthood knows that perfectly well.

As Dr. Nucatola explains in the video: “Providers that use Digoxin use it for one of two reasons. There is a group of people who use it so that there’s no risk of violating the federal abortion ban, which is if you induce the demise before you do the procedure, nobody’s going to say, you did a, live, whatever the federal government calls it, Partial Birth Abortion.”

But apparently running the risk of a born-live baby is worth it, when you're padding your bottom line with the bodies of those babies.

8 more die from heat stroke across Egypt Death toll from heat wave exceeds 100

More deaths from heat stroke have been reported and hundreds of others have fallen into ill health across 15 governorates on Monday, according to Ministry of Health reports.

The ministry says the majority of deaths were senior citizens.

The number of deaths resulting from heat stroke since the beginning of August has exceeded 100. Among the deaths were prisoners and patients who died from poor conditions and ventilation inside a hospital and prison.

On Monday, Khanka Psychiatric Hospital received seven new air conditioning units following the deaths of 11 patients due to the nationwide heat-wave, the hospital’s director, Mostafa Shehata, told state-run news agency MENA.

Meanwhile, the Shubra first police station installed new air conditioners inside its detention cells after three prisoners died due to poor ventilation during the heat wave, the Qaliubiya security director told MENA.

Since the start of August, the recorded maximum temperature has regularly exceeded 40°C, while humidity rates reached higher than 90% at certain points of the day. According to weather forecasters, the heat wave is not expected to break before 20 August.

Pope Fiddles While Christians Burn

Christians Burn While Pope Worries about "Worldly" Matters

Muslim Persecution of Christians, June 2015

by Raymond Ibrahim

...Pope Francis apparently deemed it more important to issue a proclamation addressing the environment and climate change. Whatever position one holds concerning these topics, it is telling that the pope -- the one man in the world best placed and most expected to speak up for millions of persecuted Christians around the world -- is more interested in speaking up for a "safe" (politically correct, if scientifically questionable) subject, "the world" itself, rather than the pressing bloodbath in front of him, or a topic requiring real leadership from a Christian authority.

Meanwhile, Christians around the world and the Muslim world especially continue to be persecuted and slaughtered. In one little-reported story, the Islamic State burned an 80 year-old Christian woman to death in a village southeast of Mosul. The elderly woman was reportedly burned alive for refusing to comply with Islamic law.

In east Jerusalem, a group calling itself the "Islamic State in Palestine" distributed fliers threatening to massacre all Christians who failed to evacuate the Holy City. The leaflets, which appeared on June 27, said that the Islamic State knows where the city's Christians live, and warned that they have until Eid al-Fitr -- July 19, the end of Ramadan -- to leave the city or be slaughtered. The leaflet was emblazoned with the Islamic State's black flag.

In Egypt, after a foiled suicide attack on the ancient temples of Karnak in Luxor (a tourist destination), the Islamic State promised a "fiery summer" for Egypt's Christian Copts. Abu Zayid al-Sudani, a leading member of the Islamic State, tweeted: "The bombing of Luxor, a burning summer awaits the tyrant of Egypt [President Sisi] and his soldiers, and the worshippers of the cross. This is just the beginning."

Satanic Temple Requires Attendees of Event to Sign Over Soul to Devil

Satanic Temple Requires Attendees of Event to Sign Over Soul to Devil

Priest warns: "You have no idea what you're dealing with"

John Burger

The Satanic Temple of Detroit threw off protesters of their unveiling of a demonic statue by leaking word that the event would take place in one place but holding it in another.

In addition, in an apparent attempt to weed out Christian moles who might disrupt the presentation of the statue, the Satanic Temple required everyone who had a ticket (for which they paid $25 and up) to sign a quasi-legal document in which they agreed to “transfer” their soul to Satan.​

“I agree that by signing this document under any name, given or adopted, actual or pseudonymous, I am hereby avowing my soul to Satan (aka Abbadon, aka Lucifer, aka Beelzebub, aka The Antichrist),” the document read in part. “I do so knowing that He (aka The Fallen One, aka The Father of Lies) or any of His representatives may choose to collect my eternal soul at any time, with or without notice. I understand that my signature or mark representing any name, real or made up, upon these papers constitutes a lasting and eternal contract, and that there will be no further negotiations on the matter of my eternal soul.”

Any serious Christian who had any thought to slip in would certainly take pause before signing the document. 

But if you were one of the 700 who agreed to sign, you’d be in for a revelry of punk music and public displays of affection among scantily-clad persons of a range of genders. Above the band was a suspended cross—hung upside down—and on the front of the stage was a logo with the words “This is my body, this is my blood.”

For the main event, two shirtless men held candles on either side of the statue and unveiled it shortly before midnight, upon which the men embraced each other with a kiss on the lips.

The unveiling revealed a nine-foot-tall bronze statue of Baphomet, a goat-headed winged human figure with horns and hoofs. He is seated, flanked by a boy and a girl, and rests beneath a pentagram.

Fear not. The pseudonymous Jex Blackmore, who directs the Satanic Temple’s Detroit chapter and organized the unveiling, told TIME Sunday that Baphomet symbolizes a “reconciliation of opposites, emblematic of the willingness to embrace, and even celebrate differences.”

Asked whether her group is a religious organization (or rather an anti-religious organization) she explains that it’s less of a church and more of an affinity group, built around what she repeatedly refers to as “Satanic principles.” It’s not the dogma you might expect.

Time quoted from the group’s website:

The Satanic Temple holds to the basic premise that undue suffering is bad, and that which reduces suffering is good. We do not believe in symbolic “evil.”

Fox News reported that the Temple says its concept of Lucifer is "as a literary figure."

“The mission of The Satanic Temple is to encourage benevolence and empathy among all people,” the group’s website states.

Time continued in its report:

... the group does not “promote a belief in a personal Satan.” By their logic, Satan is an abstraction, or, as Nancy Kaffer wrote for The Daily Beast last year, “a literary figure, not a deity — he stands for rationality, for skepticism, for speaking truth to power, even at great personal cost.”

Whatever their motive, those who participate had better think twice, says Jesuit Father James Martin of America magazine. He noted in a column that the Satanic Temple claims it is simply exercising their right to “religious freedom,” and “placing the statue there is a counterpoint to those who have erected, or wish to erect representations of the Ten Commandments, and other similar Christian symbols.”  The group hopes to display Baphomet at the Arkansas State Capitol, next to a monument of the Ten Commandments.

Satanists unveil sculpture in Detroit after rejection at Oklahoma capitol

Satanic Temple reveals statue shortly before midnight following a failed effort to place it near controversial Ten Commandments monument in Oklahoma

A Satanic organisation unveiled a controversial bronze Baphomet sculpture in Detroit just before midnight on Saturday, after trying in vain to have it installed near a Ten Commandments monument in Oklahoma.

Due to planned demonstrations, the group, which is opposed to Bible-themed displays on government land, kept the location of the unveiling of its nine-foot-tall monument secret until the last moment, when it emailed the information to ticket holders.

The Satanic Temple unveiled the one-ton statue at an industrial building near the Detroit River just before 11.30pm local time as supporters cheered: “Hail Satan.” Some of the hundreds in attendance rushed to pose for photos.

The statue of a winged Baphomet with a human body and a goat’s head resembled a design the group previously released. Statues of a boy and a girl stood in poses of adoration on either side.

Jex Blackmore, director of the Satanic Temple Detroit chapter, said temple members planned to transport the sculpture to Arkansas, where earlier this year the governor signed a bill authorizing a Ten Commandments monument on the State Capitol’s grounds.

The Temple had unsuccessfully applied to have the statue placed near a Ten Commandments monument installed in 2012 on the Oklahoma State Capitol grounds. The Oklahoma Supreme Court recently ruled the Ten Commandments monument violates a section of the state constitution that bans the use of state property for the benefit of a religion.

Lawmakers in the socially conservative state responded with threats to seek the impeachment of the court’s justices and pledged to push for changes to the constitution.

Oklahoma governor Mary Fallin, a Republican, said she will keep the monument in place as the state appeals the decision.

On Saturday, the presentation of Baphomet in Detroit drew protest from local Christians. About 50 people prayed for the city and denounced the monument outside a business where the Satanic Temple previously tried to display the statue before fears of a backlash scuttled the plan.

“The last thing we need in Detroit is having a welcome home party for evil,” said the Rev Dave Bullock, a pastor at Greater St Matthew Baptist Church in Highland Park, Michigan.

On Jewish day of mourning commemorating destruction of 1st, 2nd temples


TEL AVIV – As Jews here commemorated the destruction of the First and Second Jewish Temples, masked Arabs on the Temple Mount used a mosque to amass stones, Molotov cocktails and other explosives with the intent of attacking Israeli police and Jewish worshipers ascending the holy site.

The Arabs, described as mostly youth, engaged in violent clashes with Jerusalem Police, who used non-lethal means to push the rioters into the al-Aqsa Mosque to prevent what would have been a major attack on Jewish worshipers Sunday.

The Arabs holed up overnight inside the al-Aqsa Mosque, where they set up barricades using shoe racks, iron rods, and ropes to prevent the police from entering.

The plan was reportedly to attack Jewish worshipers Sunday as Jews worldwide celebrate the Jewish fast day of Tisha Báv, or the ninth day of the lunar Jewish month of Av. The day marks the anniversary of several major disasters in Jewish history, most notably the destruction of both the First and Second Jewish Temples in Jerusalem.

Is the current Temple Mount REALLY the site where God’s Holy Temple actually stood? Get the DVD that probes this question like never before!

Citing intelligence on the pending Arab riot, Jerusalem Police headed toward the outside platform of the al-Aqsa Mosque, where numerous masked rioters were preparing an attack, in a bid to thwart the violence. The police did not enter the mosque itself.

“The police were attacked immediately upon entering the Temple Mount compound by Palestinians armed with rocks, firebombs, fireworks and metal pipes,” Jerusalem Police Spokesperson Micky Rosenfeld told reporters, adding that four police officers were lightly wounded during the raid.

The police pushed the attackers inside the al-Aqsa mosque and locked the door to secure the area and to allow Jewish worshipers to ascend the site.

Israeli President Reuven Rivlin commented on the attack.

“I express my support for the security forces, and for their determination to prevent any harm or interference to the prayers at the Western Wall, the remnant of our Temple,” Rivlin said. “Such acts of hatred cannot be tolerated and we will not allow any disturbances to prevent Jews from praying at this holy site.”

Culture and Sport Minister Miri Regev was not happy with the police action, which only resulted in the rioters being closed off inside the mosque while no arrests were made. She blasted what she called “police incompetence in dealing with the rioters.”

“The Temple Mount is a holy place for Jews and Muslims,” Regev told reporters here. “The government must make sure that Jews can go on the Temple Mount throughout the entire year, certainly on Tisha B’Av.”

The communications minister and government spokesman for the Kingdom of Jordan, Mohammad al-Momani, astonishingly called the Jerusalem police action an “Israeli provocation against Arabs and Muslims by breaking into the al-Aqsa complex.” He did not mention the police raid was in direct response to the Arab attempt to attack Jewish worshipers, that the Arabs had first used the mosque as a place to store munitions intended in the attack, and that the police did not actually enter the mosque.

Holiest Jewish site

The Temple Mount is the holiest site in Judaism. Muslims now claim it is their third holiest site, although their stake changed several times throughout history.

The First Temple was built by King Solomon in the 10th century B.C. It was destroyed by the Babylonians in 586 B.C. The Second Temple was rebuilt in 515 B.C. after Jerusalem was freed from Babylonian captivity. That temple was destroyed by the Roman Empire in A.D. 70. Each temple stood for a period of about four centuries.

According to the Talmud, the world was created from the foundation stone of the Temple Mount. It’s believed to be the biblical Mount Moriah, where Abraham fulfilled God’s test of his willingness to sacrifice his son Isaac.

The Temple Mount has remained a focal point for Jewish services for thousands of years. Prayers for a return to Jerusalem and the rebuilding of the Temple have been uttered by Jews since the Second Temple was destroyed, according to Jewish tradition.

The al-Aqsa Mosque was constructed in about A.D. 709 to serve as a shrine near another shrine, the Dome of the Rock, which was built by an Islamic caliph. Al-Aqsa was meant to mark what Muslims came to believe was the place at which Muhammad, the founder of Islam, ascended to heaven to receive revelations from Allah.

Jerusalem is not mentioned in the Quran. It is mentioned in the Hebrew Bible 656 times.

Islamic tradition states Muhammad took a journey in a single night on a horse from “a sacred mosque” – believed to be in Mecca in southern Saudi Arabia – to “the farthest mosque.” From a rock there, according to the tradition, he ascended to heaven. The farthest mosque became associated with Jerusalem about 120 years ago.

According to research by Israeli author Shmuel Berkovits, Islam historically disregarded Jerusalem as being holy. Berkovits points out in his book “How Dreadful Is This Place!” that Muhammad was said to loathe Jerusalem and what it stood for. He wrote Muhammad made a point of eliminating pagan sites of worship and sanctifying only one place – the Kaaba in Mecca – to signify there is only one deity.

As late as the 14th century, Islamic scholar Taqi al-Din Ibn Taymiyya, whose writings influenced the Wahhabi movement in Arabia, ruled that sacred Islamic sites are to be found only in the Arabian Peninsula and that “in Jerusalem, there is not a place one calls sacred, and the same holds true for the tombs of Hebron.”

A guide to the Temple Mount by the Supreme Muslim Council in Jerusalem published in 1925 listed it as Jewish and as the site of Solomon’s temple. The Temple Institute acquired a copy of the official 1925 “Guide Book to Al-Haram Al-Sharif,” which states on page 4: “Its identity with the site of Solomon’s Temple is beyond dispute. This, too, is the spot, according to universal belief, on which David ‘built there an altar unto the Lord.’”

No-pray zone

The Temple Mount was opened to the public until September 2000, when the Palestinians started their Intifada, or “uprising,” by throwing stones at Jewish worshipers after then-candidate for prime minister Ariel Sharon visited the area.

Following the onset of violence, the new Sharon government closed the Temple Mount to non-Muslims, using checkpoints to control all pedestrian traffic for fear of further clashes with the Palestinians.

The Temple Mount was reopened to non-Muslims in August 2003. It’s been open to non-Muslims only during certain hours, and not on any Christian, Jewish or Muslim holidays or other days considered “sensitive” by the Waqf.

During “open” days, Jews and Christians are allowed to ascend the Mount, usually through organized tours and only if they conform first to a strict set of guidelines, which include demands that they not pray or bring any “holy objects” to the site. Visitors are banned from entering any of the mosques without direct Waqf permission. Rules are enforced by Waqf agents, who watch tours closely and alert nearby Israeli police to any breaking of their guidelines.


July 24, 2015 - The strongest El Nino EVER recorded is forming in the Pacific Ocean

Strongest El Nino EVER could bring SIX MONTHS of STORMS to Britain
Climate scientists warned temperatures in the Pacific have increased by THREE degrees Fahrenheit in recent weeks as ocean winds have weakened.

The so-called El Nino phenomenon, which has a huge impact on the world's weather, has only been stronger twice before in recorded history - the last time in 1997, when a series of violent 100MPH Atlantic storms slammed into the UK.

And experts claimed this year's El Nino is STILL strengthening and could soon break all historical records with the extreme weather patterns lastng until next Spring - meaning Britain could face one of the worst winter storm seasons in living memory.

Meteorologist Leon Brown, of The Weather Channel UK, said the super-strength El Nino could even dislodge the jetstream, leading to more unstable weather in the UK this autumn

Earth 2.0: Bad News for God?

The discovery of Kepler-452b is not likely to see the public swoon with a collective rendition of Kumbaya.  But this Earth 2.0 is a huge if under-appreciated discovery, not because Kepler-452b is unique but for just the opposite reason; there are likely thousands or millions or even billions of such earth-like planets in the universe.  The discovery of just one such world is good evidence for many more: after all, we know of 100 billion galaxies each with as many as 300 billion stars (big variation per galaxy).  Astronomers estimate that there are about 70 billion trillion stars.  Math wizardry is not necessary to conclude we did not by chance find the only other possibly habitable planet among that huge population of stars.

Tornado - Sweden

Tornado - Sweden

EDIS Code: TO-20150725-49346-SWE Date&Time: 2015-07-25 16:45:49 [UTC] Continent: Europe Country: Sweden State/Prov.: County of Norrbotten, Location: , City: Lulea and Pitea


On Saturday, residents of Lulea and Pitea in Norrbotten experienced an unusual natural phenomenon generally more associated with the midwest of America - tornadoes. "I was a bit worried about a boat that was a little too close to the tornado," Hansi Gelter told Swedish newspaper, Expressen. Gelter saw a tornado form over the sea at Pitea. "I had just got inside the door trying to escape the rain, when the wife screamed 'Look, a tornado!' I ran straight upstairs and fetched the camera." The tornado lasted about 5-10 minutes before disappearing. "I was never afraid. I saw that the tornado was moving away from us." Just outside Lulea, Malin Steding was awoken at 0600 by a thunderstorm. "My husband shouted that he saw a tornado and I hurried to try to photograph it," she told Expressen. "I made sure my cats stayed indoors. You do not want them to be sucked up!" Though scientists don't entirely understand how tornadoes form, they do have a good idea about the conditions that cause them to develop. Twisters have touched down on all continents except Antarctica, but certain locations on the planet are more likely to experience tornadoes than others. Most tornadoes occur in the so-called Tornado Alley, the tornado-prone region of the United States, from Texas north into Kansas and the surrounding states of the Great Plains region. If a tornado is to form an area must have the three ingredients necessary: a lot of warm, moist air close to the ground; atmospheric instability, a condition that promotes the vertical movement of air; and clashing air fronts that act to propel moist air upward. Scientists believe that if the two opposing winds move at different speeds, the air in between them will rotate around a horizontal axis. If one end of the horizontal air column gets caught in the supercell's updraft, it will tilt vertically, forming a funnel cloud. The continuous upward energy of the supercell elongates the funnel cloud, and causes its spin to tighten and speed up, similar to the way ice skaters spin faster when their arms are pulled close to their bodies. It is now high season for tornadoes in Sweden, but it is difficult to say how many occur each year. Tornadoes are often short-lived, and therefore difficult to observe. "There are usually about a dozen tornadoes in Sweden each year", says Camilla Albertsen, a meteorologist at the Norwegian Weather Service. "Powerful tornadoes in Scandinavia can lift rooftops or cars, but usually only topple a few trees."
