The technician, Holly O’Donnell, had worked for StemExpress, a biotech company which had purchased fetal body parts from Planned Parenthood in order to sell them medical researchers. Visibly shaken, here’s how she describes what transpired:
"‘Want to see something kind of cool?" O’Donnell says her supervisor asked her.
"And she just taps the heart, and it starts beating. And I’m sitting here and I’m looking at this fetus, and its heart is beating, and I don’t know what to think.”
She then was asked to cut through the baby’s face to extract the brain.
“I can’t even describe what that feels like,” she says.
According to LifeNews, "The Center for Medical Progress alleges that Planned Parenthood is likely breaking federal laws requiring that appropriate medical care and treatment be given to babies who survive abortions. State and federal law require that the same treatment be given to an infant born-alive after an abortion as to a normally delivered baby (1 U.S.C. 8, CA Health and Safety Code 123435). California law also prohibits any kind of experimentation on a fetus with a discernible heartbeat (CA Health and Safety Code 123440).
