PP Medical Director: “Dismemberment” Abortion “Checkbox” Skirts Partial-Birth Law 2

From the persistent and brave people at The Center For Medical Progress.

ORLANDO, July 27–Never-before-released undercover video shows Dr. Suzie Prabhakaran, the Vice President of Medical Affairs for Planned Parenthood of Southwest and Central Florida, graphically discussing Planned Parenthood’s late-term “dismemberment” and partial-birth abortion protocols in the context of fetal body part harvesting.

The new video comes as the U.S. Senate is debating provisions to terminate taxpayer subsidies to Planned Parenthood, the nation’s biggest abortion business.

At a Planned Parenthood conference evening reception, CMP investigators posing as buyers from a biotech company discuss partnering with Dr. Prabhakaran’s Planned Parenthood affiliate in order to harvest fetal organs and tissues from the 2nd-trimester abortions performed there. Prabhakaran advises that her affiliate is merging with the Orlando Planned Parenthood, which does abortions up to 23 weeks and has a high procedure volume, with eighteen abortions at 18-weeks and above scheduled for the next week.

Prabhakaran discusses how Planned Parenthood allows their abortion doctors to certify compliance with the federal Partial-Birth Abortion Ban, which prohibits abortions in which a fetus is extracted alive up to certain anatomical landmarks (18 U.S.C. 1531). According to Prabhakaran, Planned Parenthood abortion doctors can certify compliance with the law by using a feticide like digoxin to kill the fetus before the abortion, or they can simply “document” their “intent” to do a “dismemberment” abortion where the fetus is pulled apart with forceps rather than extracted intact.

“So some people train to just document that like, you know to comply with the Partial-Birth Abortion Ban, you basically have to say, ‘I intend to utilize dismemberment techniques for this procedure,’” explains Prabhakaran. “So every time you do a procedure, that’s how you document. So, like, there’s like a checkbox,” Prabhakaran states, “so it would be before the procedure, you do your evaluation, you write, ‘I intend to utilize dismemberment techniques for this procedure.’”

Prabhakaran indicates she never uses digoxin to kill the fetus before the abortion, and relies entirely on the “checkbox” to “document” her intent in the abortion to certify compliance with the federal law: “I’m not doing digoxin, and we’re just going to document and there’s never been a problem.”

Prabhakaran’s description of Planned Parenthood’s loose protocols for 2nd-trimester abortion procedures corroborates statements by Dr. Deborah Nucatola, Senior Director of Medical Services for Planned Parenthood Federation of America, in CMP’s first undercover video, that show a lax attitude toward the partial-birth abortion law:

“The Federal [Partial-Birth] Abortion Ban is a law, and laws are up to interpretation. So there are some people who interpret it as it’s intent. So if I say on Day 1 I do not intend to do this, what ultimately happens doesn’t matter.”

Nucatola states in the first video that Planned Parenthood abortion doctors can make changes to the abortion technique in order to bring the fetus out intact for body parts harvesting, regardless of any initial “intent” statement: “So if you do it starting from a breech [feet-first] 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.”

CMP project lead David Daleiden notes, “Planned Parenthood medical directors and abortion doctors feign compliance with the federal partial-birth abortion law on paper, knowing full well that ‘what ultimately happens doesn’t matter’ so long as no one is scrutinizing what they actually do to women and children in the operating room. And the fact that Planned Parenthood has a ‘dismemberment’ ‘checkbox’ on their abortion forms should tell the public and policymakers everything they need to know about this barbaric abortion business. The Department of Justice should open an immediate investigation into Planned Parenthood’s late-term abortion practices, and the U.S. Congress must stop forcing taxpayers to subsidize Planned Parenthood’s brutal abortion empire.”

  2. Thank you for posting about this abhorrent practice. I’m so ashamed that this barbarity goes on basically in plain sight in our free nation “Under God”. May the Lord forgive us & enable those in power to grasp the magnitude of what’s at stake so that we taxpayers aren’t any longer in any way guilty of paying this blood money however indirectly…The abomination abounds…

    At first glance, the justifiable abhorrence at these people hits you. Later, you start to think about the society we live in, that has not only produced these monsters, but accepts and even honors them.

    Many Christians voted for Barack Obama, who repeatedly voted against even saving a live baby who survived abortion. Think about that. Obama wanted to legally protect murderers, and that was good with over half our voters.

    Yes, I know and hold abortion to be murder too. But some of us thought people would draw the line at live birth murder. This has caused even some of the most hardened abortionists and nurses to leave the practice. But as a whole, our society does not care.

    This was predictable: draw out a continuum of the starting point, the reasoning for it, the direction in which it begins, and extend that line straight out – no variations.

    Euthanasia and live birth dismemberment is a completely logical arrival point.

    Believe what people say or display about themselves as a starting point – and then extend it out.

    We will still have some unpleasant unexpecteds from time to time simply because we are reluctant to believe the worst of what people reveal about themselves and believe where it’s going.

    Watch for regulatory action that begins to put hard limits on how much money (under any kind of medical insurance–but it will begin with ‘gubmint’/medicare/medicaid polities) can be spent on terminal or chronically disabled diseases.

    Canada is already considering offering a premium/cash payment to doctors who are willing to terminate life/euthanasia. Right now they are having trouble getting enough folks offed because of the time required to counsel the target and regulated reimbursement not being high enough.

    I’ve said it before, I’ll say it again: laws are generally written to be worked around. Republican Senators are supposed to be against abortion but the prodder crown swings a big election stick and has a big money. Oh dear, what to do, what to do?
    Mr or Ms Senator has one of those professional non-political professional law writers (I knew a few) write that law to make the proponents happy. Great, we write a law outlawing late term abortions except few a very few medical exceptions and the pro-life crowd’s blindly happy as they take the Senators at their word and can’t read and fully understand the hundreds of pages of legal speak. Problem is the writers have put in language that allows the murderers to skirt the law legally.’ See the USERRA law that was supposed to save the jobs of activated Guardsmen and Reserves. Congress put in language that not only allowed civilian employers to screw GIs they put in ways for Federal Civil Service to do so also.
    Abortion meets the needs of many progs, from fiscal to political. Nazis immediately eliminated undesirable children at the entrance of the camps, Congress has just made it more convenient to do it yourself. It’z ze law, just follow ze orders.

      Wow, somehow prog murderers became ‘prodder crown’…and I’m on a PC using Windows. Hmmmm…maybe MS supports the wholesale murder of babies and they have a correction worm that realigns incorrect thought?
