Abortion doctor admits sold baby parts often came from babies born alive
In an unprecedented hearing in California this week featuring Planned Parenthood executives and the undercover videos made by the Center for Medical Progress, abortion doctors revealed uncomfortable truths about the industry. In one such testimony, Forrest Smith, an obstetrician-gynecologist who performed abortions in California, testified not only that Planned Parenthood and other abortion clinics were selling aborted baby parts for profit, but babies were often born alive, then murdered, in order to ensure the organs to be sold were more fresh and intact.
Smith, who said he performed over 50,000 abortions testified that based on what he saw in the videos and what he knows about the abortion industry, he believes doctors performed abortion procedures so that babies would be born alive, even though it puts the mother at greater risk.
Smith testified that he came to this conclusion after reviewing video footage of a presentation Alisa Goldberg gave at a 2014 Planned Parenthood conference and in another Center for Medical Progress video where a procurement manager for Advanced Bioscience Research talks about a “fetus falling out.”
In her presentation, Goldberg suggested using large doses of misoprostol so a second-trimester induced abortion procedure could be completed in one day. According to Smith, large doses of that drug would trigger “tumultuous labor” and suggested the baby is often delivered so quickly, (…) or in another words appears to “fall out” of the mother and is born alive. Smith also testified that “very few people in abortion, outside of Planned Parenthood, do that.”
In a “normal” abortion scenario, the baby’s heart would be stopped with a lethal dose of potassium chloride while still inside the mother’s womb, and then expelled. Of course, this testimony flies in the face of what Planned Parenthood has always said about the Center for Medical Progress videos which is that, at best, they were simply donating organs to science for research.
