RUSH: The latest from Planned Parenthood, these videos from the group — Center for Medical Progress — that’s made these videos. You know, every time they release videos, you think, “My God, how much worse can it get? It can’t get any worse.” And then each new release it gets worse. “Fifth Planned Parenthood Video Turns to Intact Fetuses.” Now, the fourth video alludes to this. The fifth video gets descriptive.
How about this as a pull quote: “Yeah, we had a really long day, and they’re all mixed up together in a bag.” Meaning the aborted fetuses. “Yeah,” man, “we had a really long day.”
“Much of the video is dedicated to discussions of the higher prices of ‘intact’ fetuses…” May I give you a different way of describing an “‘intact’ fetus”? An “‘intact’ fetus” that is in a bag with other “intact fetuses” getting mixed up would otherwise be called “a baby.”
Until somebody explains to me how it isn’t, then I shall continue to refer to it as such.
I know it makes a lot of people nervous. It seems like a lot of things, just discussing them these days, are making a lot of people nervous. A lot of people would prefer you just not talk about it because they don’t want to feel nervous. Or whatever. But much of this fifth video highlights “Melissa Farrell, director of research for Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast notes that Planned Parenthood is able to ‘alter our process’ to obtain ‘intact fetal cadavers’ and says, ‘It’s all just a matter of line items,'” as in budget items.
“Beginning at roughly the 9:45 mark, the video takes a macabre turn as the undercover reporters ask if there are any ‘fresh specimens’ to look at, and a Planned Parenthood worker bursts into laughter. Another says, ‘We had a really long day, and theyÂ’re all mixed up together in a bag.’ But [these two Planned Parenthood workers] do display the remains of a 20 week-old twin, picking through the lungs, intestines, and a limb.”
This is Planned Parenthood, the taxpayer-subsidized entity that aborts babies and throws them in bags and which the Senate yesterday could not find the votes to defund. So let’s go to the audio sound bites and give it a listen. This is on the Center for Medical Progress website, a new undercover video, number five, behind the scenes at a Planned Parenthood clinic. Now, in this video, an unidentified buyer spoke with the director of research or Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast whose name is (as I say, Melissa Farrell).
They’re talking about the Texas Planned Parenthood branch’s track record of “fetal tissue” sales, including its ability to deliver “fully intact fetuses” at the abortion clinic headquarters of Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast in Houston. The buyer says, “Now, look, if a provider is needing to change the technique a little bit… Even though I know I’m going against my side on this, but okay, I’m with you saying, ‘No, I want you to be paid per specimen.’ I mean, this is what we’re looking for, and if you can do that, and it’s compensated to you financially.’ That’s helping you to grow your clinic, and I’m willing to do that.”
FARRELL: If we alter a 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 as this. I mean, that’s… It’s all just a matter of line items.
RUSH: They’re just discussing the sale of “intact fetal cadavers.” Aborted babies. Now, of course, they do this without any guilty consciences because it isn’t a baby if the mother doesn’t want it. And according to Nancy Pelosi, it’s not a baby until the mother leaves the hospital with it. And according to some liberals, it’s not a human being while it is fully dependent on its mother, which could mean that a liberal adult would be considered a fetus, given that they always remain totally dependent on somebody other than themselves.
But the cavalier way in which “intact fetal cadavers” are discussed here: “
Yeah, “[W]e can make it part of the budget that any dissections are this and splitting the specimens into different shipments as this. I mean, that’s… It’s all just a matter of line items,” however we want to account for it. Like if you want couple limbs here or you want to take a leg from over there, it’s just a matter of how we dissect this and count it up. That’s all! The buyer says, “Well, with your financial background, I mean, you could say the benefit of this financially. I’m glad you have that background.”
FARRELL: I think everyone realizes, especially because my department contributes so much to the bottom line of our organization here. You know weÂ’re one of the largest affiliates. Our research department is the largest in the United States, larger than any the other affiliates’ combined.
RUSH: Now, that’s in a restaurant over lunch. She’s bragging about how much she contributes to Planned Parenthood’s “bottom line” with the sale of “intact fetal cadavers.” The guy’s setting her up. I mean, the guy is complimenting her on her background, her financial background, how she sees the financial benefit of this operation. So he’s praising her, and she just returns it right back.
“Well, I think everybody realizes, especially because my department contributes so much to the bottom line of [Planned Parenthood] here. You know, we’re one of the biggest affiliates. Our research department the largest in the US, larger than any other affiliates combined.” Meaning they’re selling a lot more body parts in there at Gulf Coast Houston Planned Parenthood than any other Planned Parenthood branch. That is her brag. So that’s the highlights of the fifth video. There will be more, as you well
That’s just the highlights.
RUSH: Okay. Let’s hit the phones and find out what’s lurking out there. We’re gonna start in St. Paul, Minnesota, with Chris. Welcome, sir. Great to have you on the EIB Network. Hello.
CALLER: Hey, thanks for having me Rush. I love the show.
RUSH: You bet, sir. Thank you.
CALLER: So, why I was calling, my wife actually works the operating room at Planned Parenthood here in St. Paul. She takes care of a number of procedures, one of which is abortions. But one of the doctors from the St. Paul location here was interviewed, and what happened was when they posted those videos to YouTube, they’d been cut up and edited to really chastise Planned Parenthood. And I just don’t think that all the facts, you know, are straight. Planned Parenthood does a lot of good things, and not just, you know, baby killing and now I guess throwing fetuses into bags. That’s rather hard to believe.
RUSH: Wait a minute. Planned Parenthood does a lot of good things, not just baby killing and throwing fetuses into bags?
CALLER: Yes. Planned Parenthood does. They offer STD testing and treatment for people who can’t afford it.
RUSH: They do mammograms at Planned Parenthood?
CALLER: I believe they do.
RUSH: No, they don’t. You can’t get a mammogram at Planned Parenthood. It’s not a trick question. I just heard that the other day. Well, Chris, I really thank you. You have done a better job than I because you come to the program with validation and authority. Your wife works there. They do more than kill babies and throw ’em in bags. That’s better than I could have said it.
The tapes are edited. However, you can go to the Center for Medical Progress website and watch every one of these tapes in its entirety. Of course, when they’ve got three hours they have to edit it. Just like 60 Minutes, highly respected news organization, edits tape. Just like WW whatever it was in Norfolk, Virginia, edits tape, just like we hear at the EIB Network edit tape in order to fit time-wise. But unlike people that edit tape such as NBC News, which edited a 911 call of the Trayvon Martin case to give an entirely different characterization what really happened, we don’t do that. And neither did this bunch.
I mean, the people that work at Planned Parenthood are speaking here for 20, 30, 40 seconds, unedited. I mean, it’s inescapable what they’re doing. You’re the first guy that’s called and said that it really isn’t happening. They’re not even denying that it’s happening. About the only defense they’ve got is that the tapes are edited, so forth.
But I wouldn’t worry about it, Chris. The US Senate couldn’t even defund Planned Parenthood yesterday. So I don’t think you have anything to worry about, and I don’t believe your wife has anything to worry about, and I don’t think Planned Parenthood has anything to worry about. ‘Cause if the US Senate cannot vote to defund them after what we’ve learned, then it’s kind of all academic.
RUSH: I have one more Planned Parenthood video that I want to play for you. And of course we had a caller just now from St. Paul, Minneapolis area, his wife works at Planned Parenthood, he said (imitating caller), “Hey, they do more than abortions and throw baby parts in a bunch of bags. I mean, they do some great work there at Planned Parenthood.” There’s all kinds of rejoinders to that. I mean, a lot of rotten people done good things in the midst of their evil.
But, anyway, this is the audio, the video that read from the transcript. Unidentified male buyer here and a female buyer are speaking with a Planned Parenthood worker. This is the woman that came in and joined the other Planned Parenthood babe Melissa Farrell. This is the one that opened the door and started talking to the buyers. This video is behind the scenes at a Planned Parenthood clinic, and they are asking if they can see an intact cadaver.
The buyers, they’ve had it referenced for them, they’ve had an intact cadaver referenced by Planned Parenthood people. “Oh, yeah, intact cadavers there.” They’re just line items, whatever you want, you want arm, some legs, lung, we’ll check. And this is the portion of the video where the Planned Parenthood worker shares just how worn out they all are after such a long day.
MAN: Are there any fresh specimens from today that we can still look at, or —
WOMAN: (Laughing) We had a really long day, and they’re all mixed up together in a bag. If I would have known 10 minutes ago, I would have saved something.
MAN: Yeah, yeah.
WOMAN: You know what, it’s not like we need something today, but if we could get a visual today of it, that would be a good thing. Is that possible?
WOMAN: Yeah. Let me see. That one is probably frozen.
RUSH: Yeah, I think we could probably arrange that. I think I have one that’s probably frozen. And once again, we’re talking about human beings here. It is what it is. It’s an overworked phrase, but there. I just wanted to play the audio support of what I had read to you from a story about this, the latest fifth video, Center for Medical Progress sting operation against Planned Parenthood.
RUSH: And to Houston we go. This is Robert. Robert, it’s great to have you with us on the Rush Limbaugh program today. Hello, sir.
CALLER: Hello, Rush. It’s a real honor to talk to you, sir.
RUSH: Thank you very much.
CALLER: Listen, it seems to me the Democrats have to explain one really glaring inconsistency in their support for Planned Parenthood. Follow me and tell me if I’m wrong. A majority, or at least a measurable percentage of these are black babies that are being aborted. A large majority, I think 80%, vote Democrat. So these Democrats are aborting Democrat voters. Future Democrat voters being aborted. If we Republicans were as racist as they say we are, wouldn’t we support that also? I mean, from a racist point of view, that’s kind of a twofer.
RUSH: Well, look, a couple things here. Planned Parenthood does not divulge who they are aborting. They don’t brag about it, and the Democratic Party doesn’t brag about it. (I’m sorry. “Democrat” Party.) We know the numbers. We know that two-thirds of Planned Parenthood offices and clinics are in African-American neighborhoods or nearby. But all we can do is extrapolate.
I don’t know if somebody… If there’s data on the number of abortions by race and ethnicity, I don’t know of it, and that’s key. The Democrats don’t have to get away with anything because nobody thinks about that. Nobody’s… I don’t even think Al Sharpton thinks about it. I don’t even think the Reverend Jackson thinks about it. Abortion is just what it is. It is in a silo. It’s self-contained, and nothing else about it matters, other than it must happen.
And if anything — anything at all — gets in the way of it not happening, whatever that is is gonna be dealt with and swatted away and blown up. So if somebody came along and tries to say, “Wait a minute! Do you African-Americans, do you Democrat voters realize that two-thirds of the kids being aborted in this country are black?” If somebody did come along and say it, I don’t think it’d matter. Just my assessment here. Folks, if what they’re doing now can’t get a rise out anybody, what the hell else is?
I mean, if the Senate can’t even vote to defund it based on what now is known — and, by the way, it’s always been suspected what’s going on in these clinics. You can’t have 1.3 million abortions a year in this country and have it not be and not be pretty yucky. Okay, so those videos come along and they offer detail. To many people, it’s simply confirmation of what common sense tells you has to be happening in there. But it doesn’t matter.
It’s the sacrament. For the Democrat Party, liberalism is a religion. You’re not going to talk them out of it. Just like you’re not going to talk a Christian out of believing in Jesus Christ. And you’re certainly not gonna do it by telling them Jesus Christ is something other than what they think of Him. You’re never gonna get anywhere doing that, and going after abortion on the basis of who is being aborted, to the Democrat Party, they’re nobodies. They’re “clumps of cells.”
They’re “unviable tissue masses,” or whatever they say to make sure they don’t think about what’s actually happening in there. Another way to look at this is — and I have said this before — the Democrat Party is aborting itself. It’s aborting its future. It knows this. Why else do you think they’re all for madcap, open-border immigration? They’ve got to replace the bodies somewhere. As a party, they have made it a sacrament that a woman can do with her fetus whatever she wants to do.
And you can’t say a word about it no matter what happens in there. But they still have to replace the bodies. So, amnesty! I mean, we’ve had however many abortions? It’s 1.3 million a year is the number since 1973. You’re not gonna replace ’em all about amnesty, but we’re talking about anywhere from 11 to 20 million people here who, if they are granted citizenship and can vote, then Democrats are lessening the depth of their problem.
RUSH: And here is Steve in St. Paul, Minnesota. Steve, I’m really glad you waited. Welcome, sir, to the EIB Network. Hello.
CALLER: Thanks, Rush. Mega dittos from St. Paul, Minnesota. I’m a longtime listener from about almost 30 years, and a first-time caller.
RUSH: Well, great to have you here, sir. I appreciate your patience. Thank you.
CALLER: Basically I couldn’t let… You had a caller on earlier from St. Paul, and I couldn’t let that stand, the impression that he gave the country, based on his lack of understanding as to what’s going on with this abortion thing.
RUSH: Well, let me repeat what he said so people know what you’re talking about. A guy called, I forget his name, but he says wife worked at Planned Parenthood, and he said, “Hey, Planned Parenthood does a lot of good stuff! They do more than just abortions and throw baby parts in bags.”
CALLER: Yeah. I think he actually said, “They do more than kill babies. They do other things, too.” I think that’s what he said.
RUSH: “They do more than kill babies,” but he actually said, “They do more than kill babies and throw the parts in bags,” or some such thing.
RUSH: He was acknowledging that what we’ve learned on these videos happens. Then he said the tapes that we’ve learned all this from “have obviously been edited,” and that’s the only fire-back that these Planned Parenthood advocates have is to attack the video, which is posted in its entirety! Every one of these videos is posted unedited — in some cases three-hours long — at the Center for Medical Progress website.
CALLER: Holding a bag of baby parts. What more do you need to see?
RUSH: Right. “But they do more than that.”
CALLER: I don’t care what they edit. They’re holding a bag of baby parts, you know?
CALLER: We understand. I don’t know if the world understands, but somebody’s gotta understand: This is a genocide. The world has never seen in the history of mankind. The numbers slaughtered since this began and before worldwide dwarf anything Hitler did or a Stalin did or everybody put out there. The Khmer Rouge. The Pol Pot regime. It makes them look like rank amateurs. And this is done by average citizens. It’s unbelievable what the world has been reduced to. It’s unbelievable! I don’t get it.
RUSH: Yeah, you do. Yeah, you do. I mean, you get it. We all get it. That’s part of what makes it even sicker.
CALLER: How do you…? You know, when the Jews were being slaughtered by the Nazis I often wondered, “Why didn’t anybody do anything?”
RUSH: Let me tell you something since you mentioned that. Way, way back… I’m going back 1994, 1995. Jeff Greenfield asked me to appear with him at the 92nd Street Y in Manhattan, and I didn’t really know what it was, and because I had a certain amount of respect for Greenfield, I agreed to do it. It was my fault. I didn’t research it. I didn’t know what I was stepping into, which probably was a good thing.
What it was, was me and Greenfield on stage with him interviewing me, and the crowd from the local neighborhood there, the 92nd Street Y, was the audience. And it pretty much was Greenfield going through a series of questions saying, “Do you really believe X? Do you really believe…?” And then he’d quote something else I said. I was put in the position of explaining or justifying what I believe. He was polite. It was not… None of it was rude or challenging. And then he got to the word “feminazi.”
“Do you really, really think that’s what feminism has become?” (chuckles) So not really knowing where I was because of my own laziness and lack of research — and, by the way, everybody knew I was going there but nobody told me what it was about, either. So I was kind of flying blind. I said, “You know what strikes me about this, Jeff? We’re a large Jewish audience here, and given the experience of Jewish people, what’s going on in abortion clinics I would think would really, really focus people.
“I mean, what’s happening in these clinics you could draw a comparison to what’s happened in death camps all over world history,” and the audience just booed me like you can’t believe! The comparison that I made of the killing of the essence of innocence in the womb to any mass murder, no matter who — not just Hitler, but take your pick. I mean, they practically booed me off the stage, and I stood fast, and I maintained it. But they didn’t want to hear it, is the point.
