A ninth undercover video from the pro-life group Center for Medical Progress shows a woman identified as a procurement manager with a nonprofit medical company appearing to discuss details of the process behind fetal tissue collection.

“I literally have had women come in and go in the O.R. and they’re back out in three minutes, and I’m going, ‘What’s going on?’ Oh yeah, the fetus was already in the vaginal canal. Whenever we put her in the stirrups, it just fell out,” says a woman identified as Perrin Larton, procurement manager with the California-based Advanced BioScience Resources Inc.

“So you know, because if they’ve had a lot of births, then that’s kind of what happens,” she says. “But most of the time it is not intact.”

Ms. Larton was also included in a past video released by CMP, whose series of videos that include comments from Planned Parenthood officials have sparked congressional inquiries. A phone message left for her Tuesday morning was not immediately returned.

The video also includes clips of people featured in past videos — Katharine Sheehan, a past medical director of Planned Parenthood of the Pacific Southwest — and Cate Dyer, CEO of the for-profit company StemExpress.

As new videos were released, StemExpress cut ties with Planned Parenthood last month.

“In the twisted world of baby parts trafficking from Planned Parenthood abortion clinics, there are few unbroken rules,” CMP Project Lead David Daleiden said. “After the serious admissions in Planned Parenthood’s letter to Congress last week, it is imperative for lawmakers and law enforcement to act decisively to determine the full extent of Planned Parenthood and their proxies’ lawbreaking, hold them accountable, and stop the taxpayer funding of these barbaric atrocities against humanity.”

In a letter to Congress last week, Cecile Richards, president of Planned Parenthood Federation of America, wrote that affiliates’ involvement in fetal tissue research is a “minuscule” part of their work, that reimbursements can range from $45 to $60 per tissue specimen, used only to recover costs, and that the group “adheres to the highest standards and follows all laws.”

Planned Parenthood has released a “forensic analysis” the group says is proof that CMP edited and spliced the videos in a misleading manner and that the “full footage” videos had missing sections.

Mr. Daleiden, though, said the footage was removed because it showed center investigators using the bathroom or speaking to each other apart from Planned Parenthood or StemExpress officials, labeling the Fusion GPS report as a “pseudoscientific production.”
