The Los Angeles Supreme Court issued a temporary injunction on Tuesday which will stop the Center for Medical Progress from releasing any video showing three officials from StemExpress, which is the company that buys and sells fetal tissue from Planned Parenthood Abortions.
According to the Washington Times, the pro-life group responded on Wednesday by accusing StemExpress of trying to “cover up this illegal baby parts trade”after the court order. CMP said in a statement that StemExpress is “attempting to use meritless litigation to cover-up this illegal baby parts trade, suppress free speech, and silence the citizen press reporting on issues of burning concern to the American public.”
“They are not succeeding — their initial petition was rejected by the court, and their second petition was eviscerated to a narrow and contingent order about an alleged recording pending CMP’s opportunity to respond,” the group said.
Since July 13, CMP has released three disturbing videos showing Planned Parenthood officials talking flippantly about buying and selling fecal organs from abortions. The latest video shows StemExpress employee Holly O’Donnell say she was hired to “draw blood and dissect dead fetuses and sell the parts to researchers.”
“The harder and more valuable the tissue, the more money you get,” O’Donnell explained. “So if you can somehow procure a brain or a heart, you’re going to get more money than just chorionic villi or umbilical cord. That’s basically what it is. So I guess that’s an incentive to try and get the hard stuff.”
CMP has said they may release as many as a dozen videos like this in the coming months.
