This week, the Center for Medical Progress released the first installment of a new video series highlighting the testimony of Planned Parenthood whistleblower, Holly O’Donnell. O’Donnell worked as a procurement technician for StemExpress, a company that allegedly purchased baby body parts from Planned Parenthood affiliates.
O’Donnell courageously spoke out against Planned Parenthood in 2015 when CMP released the first of many investigative videos about the abortion chain’s trafficking of body parts from aborted babies. In the new video series, O’Donnell explains the chilling details of her daily work and the lucrative business model she witnessed. According to a press release from CMP about the new video, O’Donnell worked for StemExpress from December 2012 to April 2013, “ultimately quitting in disgust with the company’s business model.”
The video features David Daleiden, investigative journalist with CMP, interviewing O’Donnell about her experiences. From the recently released footage, O’Donnell clearly was uncomfortable with the work from the very beginning but did not want to lose a new job. When she was hired, she thought she would be drawing blood, as is proper to her phlebotomist profession. O’Donnell was shocked to discover on her first day working for StemExpress that she would be responsible for harvesting saleable body parts from the bodies of aborted babies.
O’Donnell describes in graphic detail the first time she handled the body of a baby killed in abortion. Her trainer from StemExpress showed her the baby’s body, and O’Donnell explains:
She’s showing me parts of, this is a leg, this is an arm, and then she says, “Put some gloves on.” So I put the gloves on. She hands me the tweezers, and she goes, “Oh, can you show me some of the parts I just showed you?” I said, “Yeah.” And I put the tweezers in, and I put it on one of the limbs, and I’ve never felt this in my life, I felt the pain radiate through my hand. You can feel the death go up through, you know, it was something that was just alive. And I grabbed it, and I felt that, and I started to get woozy.
After that horrifying experience, O’Donnell says she fainted and woke up in the recovery room. The abortion workers were not surprised by her fainting, and one woman commented, “Some of us never get over it [handling the bodies of aborted babies].”
To support O’Donnell’s claims, CMP released the job offer letter O’Donnell received from StemExpress and a StemExpress document detailing the body parts procured from the Concord, California Planned Parenthood as evidence of O’Donnell’s employment with the company. The upcoming video series will highlight more of Holly O’Donnell’s chilling testimony. The daily tasks of her job as a procurement technician reveal in tragic detail the inhumanity of the abortion industry. While Planned Parenthood is still under investigation for these heinous crimes, O’Donnell’s eyewitness account is needed more than ever.
