#PPSellsBabyParts PLANNED PARENTHOOD TX DOC: HARVESTING INTACT FETAL HEADS “WILL GIVE ME SOMETHING TO STRIVE FOR”
Dr. Amna Dermish, Planned Parenthood Late-Term Abortion Doctor in Austin, TX, Taught by PPFA Senior Director of Medical Services Dr. Deborah Nucatola to Use Partial-Birth Abortions For Intact Fetuses

AUSTIN, Oct. 27–The eleventh video release from The Center for Medical Progress in the ongoing Planned Parenthood baby parts scandal shows the abortion doctor for Planned Parenthood in Austin, TX, Dr. Amna Dermish, describing a partial-birth abortion procedure to terminate living, late-term fetuses which she hopes will yield intact fetal heads for brain harvesting.
Dr. Dermish admits she was trained by the Senior Director of Medical Services at Planned Parenthood Federation of America, Dr. Deborah Nucatola. Nucatola described a partial-birth abortion technique to harvest fetal organs in the first Planned Parenthood video released July 14 by CMP.
“My aim is usually to get the specimens out pretty intact,” says Dermish, speaking to actors posing as a fetal tissue procurement company. Dermish admits that she will sometimes use ultrasound guidance to convert a 2nd-trimester fetus to a feet-first breech presentation: “Especially the 20-weekers are a lot harder versus the 18-weekers, so at that point I’ll switch to breech.”
“That’s what Deb [Nucatola] was telling us, was it really makes a difference for tissue collection at PPLA,” says one of the actors, referencing Nucatola’s technique for organ harvesting. “It’s really nice when it’s, yeah–I trained with her,” replies Dermish.
In reply to a question about harvesting fetal brain, Dermish notes, “I haven’t been able to do that yet,” but exclaims with laughter, “This will give me something to strive for!”
Dermish does not use the chemical digoxin to kill the fetus before 20 weeks, so her feet-first, intact extraction abortions are done on living fetuses. Using ultrasound guidance to manipulate the fetus from vertex to breech orientation before extracting the yet-living fetus is a hallmark of the illegal partial-birth abortion procedure (18 U.S.C. 1531).
Dermish also affirms a fetal body part price of $50 or $60 per specimen. The sale or purchase of human fetal tissue is a federal felony punishable by up to 10 years in prison and a fine of up to $500,000 (42 U.S.C. 289g-2).
The state of Texas recently moved to disbar Planned Parenthood from taxpayer funding on account of Medicaid fraud and abortion-related crimes. Governor Greg Abbott recently said in an interview that the state of Texas is now in possession of “hard evidence” that Planned Parenthood is engaged in “violations of federal and state law concerning abortion procedures.”
“Less than 4 miles away from the Texas state capitol, Planned Parenthood routinely practices barbaric partial-birth abortions on living, late-term fetuses,” notes CMP Project Lead David Daleiden. “Planned Parenthood’s crimes are not just the result of local bad actors, but are tolerated and even encouraged at the highest levels of the national organization. State-level criminal investigations must press charges, and Congress’ new select committee must pursue a deep and comprehensive accounting of Planned Parenthood’s atrocities against humanity.”
The western world has become accustomed to various reactions at the mentioning or drawing of the prophet Mohammed. The reactions have been from verbal to violent to bloody, and even lethal as we have seen in the case of the murder of Dutch movie director Theo Van Gogh in 2004 or the Charlie Hebdo massacre of 2015 in Paris.
Recently, one of the few remaining cartoonist from the French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo announced that he was no longer going to draw cartoons of Mohammed. Ronald Luzier known as Luz explained that he had grown tired of drawing cartoons of Mohammed. He claimed that just like he had lost interest in other personalities, he had also lost interest in drawing Mohammed.
Almost at the same time and unrelated, there was a Mohammed cartoons exhibit in Garland, Texas, organized by Pamela Geller of the American Freedom Defense Initiative. Towards the end of the exhibit, two gunmen approached the facility and started shooting at one of the security guards. The two shooters were killed on the spot. Miss Geller was quick to link the shooting to the theme of the exhibit, and she was probably right.
As I see it, freedom of expression is on trial once again. Actually, when it comes to freedom of expression, it has always been found guilty without a trial by radical Muslims. Nevertheless, I believe that neither Luz nor Geller were correct in their handling of the Mohammed cartoons controversy.
Luz chose to stop drawing and make a public announcement about it. Considering how far Charlie Hebdo pushes the envelope each week, it is highly doubtful that the cartoonist is stopping his cartoons because of remorse or respect for religious figures. It is pretty much guaranteed that Moses and Jesus will continue to receive their (un)fair share of abuse and ridicule, not to mention the plethora of politicians and celebrities regularly being targeted by Luz and others.
Ultimately, it is his decision to stop drawing Mohammed, but by making that decision public, I believe that at least within the radical Muslim mindset, he has abdicated his freedom of speech. This will only be seen as a victory emboldening further crippling of the West by Shariah pushing Imams and radicals.
In his case, it would have been a lot better to stop drawing Mohammed but remain silent about his motives. That would have permitted him to maintain his dignity and his freedom of speech. No matter what the motives are, Luz will appear weak to Radical Muslims and they will use it to their advantage, as they have repeatedly done in the past.
But unfortunately, Miss Geller’s Mohammed Cartoons Exhibit is not helping either. As a matter of fact, such a display of anti-Islam by Americans will only exacerbate the situation. Freedom of speech being what it is, still does not grant us the right to say anything we want, anytime we want to anybody we want. Freedom of speech guarantees that we won’t be harassed, arrested, imprisoned or killed for speaking our mind but it doesn’t and shouldn’t give us carte blanche to say anything we want.
Freedom of speech still needs to be controlled by common sense and even moderated by respect for the sanctity of life. What Miss Geller accomplished in Texas, if anything, is a further aggravation of the radical Muslims, and in doing so, she has only fueled their fire! We already have seen what these people [radical Islamists] are capable of when they feel that their prophet has been ridiculed. I am all in favor of exposing radical Islam for what it is–a barbaric medieval ideology. This being said, organizing an exhibit of Mohammed cartoons was just poor taste.
Much education is needed if we really want people to grasp what radical Islam is capable of. Female genital mutilation, honor killings and beheadings are issues that deal with the sanctity of life on a daily basis and they are worth fighting against and exposing. As to the Mohammed cartoons, our coming to a halt or our spreading them around will lead nowhere but to a greater chasm between the West and Islam.
Those of us with Judeo/Christian ethics should know better.
STEPHENVILLE, Texas — Lawyers in the trial of the murder of ‘American Sniper’ Chris Kyle have finally selected its jury on Monday. Lawyers estimated no more than two dozen people were dismissed from service because of publicity about the case.
The jury is made up of 10 women and two men who will decide the fate of Eddie Ray Routh, who is charged with capital murder in the deaths of former Navy SEAL Chris Kyle and Kyle’s friend Chad Littlefield. Prosecutors say Kyle and Littlefield were attempting to help Routh when Routh shot them at a Texas gun range in 2013.
The film by Clint Eastwood, ‘American Sniper’ based on Kyle’s legacy as a heroic sniper who spent four tours in Iraq has earned nearly $300 million at the box office. As a result of the attention garnered by the Kyle case, the court brought in four times as many jurors as they normally do for regular cases. However, it only took one day to select the final jury.
Despite the depiction of Kyle’s funeral in the film, the jury was only asked if they could put aside what they had already heard. Routh’s attorneys plan to pursue an insanity defense. Prosecutors won’t seek the death penalty. He faces life in prison without parole if convicted.
Monday, February 2 marks the second anniversary of the death of Chris Kyle. I still can’t watch his wife, Taya, talk about it without feeling an open wound in my heart. The funeral televised from the Cowboy’s Stadium was amazing, but painful. The kind of pain that knocks the wind out of you and takes your breath away. The kind of pain that leaves you gasping for air just to prove that this is real and not a horrible nightmare.
I have no personal ties to the Kyle family, but there is something between military wives that I can’t explain. We all dance between the world of wives and widows experiencing a mixture of relief and survivor’s guilt with each knock on a neighbor’s door.
Chris went into a war zone with a bounty on his head and a target on his back. He did four tours in Iraq. He was shot twice and escaped six IED blasts. The minute the first shot rang out from his gun he gave away his location, but he made it home….only to be killed on United States soil by a fellow soldier in a place that was as familiar as home to a sniper, the gun range.
Knowing how the movie ends I still haven’t been able to watch it. If you read the book, American Sniper, then you have read about Chris’s life in his own words. He was a Texan all the way; bigger than life.
Chris grew up hunting, played sports, and went on to be a professional rodeo cowboy. However, he injured his arm bringing his rodeo career to an end. After his arm healed he joined the military ultimately working his way into SEAL Team 3 becoming a sniper.
There is a famous story about the first shot Chris took during his sniper career. The story was originally reported by CNN and later told by Chris in his book American Sniper. According to the tale, a woman, cradling a toddler, was moving towards a group of Marines carrying a grenade. Chris took the shot killing her and saving the Marines. The quote from his book read, “The woman was already dead. I was just making sure she didn’t take any Marines with her.”
The insurgents named him, Shaitan Ar-Ramadi (‘The Devil of Ramadi’). However, Chris admitted during an interview that he didn’t think the insurgents could tell the difference between him and other snipers.
When Chris returned home he started a company training law enforcement and the military. He worked with non-profits to raise awareness about post-traumatic stress disorder. He went on a reality television show. He wrote a book. And he gave lots and lots of interviews. America fell in love with their American sniper. His straight shooting Texas charm gave a human quality to the Devil of Ramadi.
The details of Chris’s death still seem vague. The trial for Eddie Ray Routh, the man accused of killing Chis, is set for this month. Perhaps the world will have a better understanding then of how a hero can escape a war zone and be killed on US soil by a man he called a friend.
Chris left behind a wife and two children.
Thanks to the state of Texas he also left behind a legacy that will help other veterans. On August 2013, then Texas governor, Rick Perry, signed the “Chris Kyle Bill” to recognize military training in order to obtaining occupational licenses in the state of Texas.
The governor current governor, Greg Abbott, declared February 2, “Chris Kyle Day”.
Texas Governor Greg Abbott declares February 2 Chris Kyle Day
Texas Governor Greg Abbott announced his plans to declare February 2 as “Chris Kyle Day” in Texas. While Abbott made this announcement, a petition has begun to award Kyle the Medal of Honor. Chris Kyle is known as the deadliest sniper in American military history. He’s also the subject of the Clint Eastwood film “American Sniper.” Abbott spoke to Fox News saying he’s honoring Kyle in this way because he is an American hero.
Kyle served four tours in Iraq saving thousands of lives. Kyle has come under heavy fire from liberal Hollywood elitists calling him a coward and a soldier who went on killing sprees. Governor Abbott made the announcement on Friday during a veteran’s event. “In honor of a Texas son, a Navy SEAL and an American hero – a man who defended his brothers and sisters in arms on and off the battlefield – I am declaring February 2nd Chris Kyle Day in Texas. We will commemorate his passing. But more importantly, remembering his answering of the call of duty.”
His full speech is below:
It’s an honor to be here with all of you who’ve served our country. America is the brightest beacon of freedom the world has ever known for one simple reason – because of you – our veterans, the men and women who put service above self.
My extended family looks a lot like this crowd today – they’ve served in the Army, Navy, Air Force and Marines. My brother Gary served 20 years in the United States Navy and served in the Persian Gulf at the same time as you, Roy. I’ve seen firsthand the sacrifice you and your families have made.
In times of war and in times of peace, heroes among us have stepped forward. You are those heroes. You stood in the face of dangers known and unknown and protected us from threats from around the world. You sacrificed so much, asked for so little in return, other than the freedom you fought do defend. On behalf of all Texans, I want to thank you for your commitment to our country.
Texans have played a powerful role in defending this nation. More than a million have served. Many more have trained and lived on military installations in the Lone Star State. And today, Texas is the proud home to almost two million veterans, active-duty military, Reserve & National Guard and their families.
I am grateful to the Texas VFW for all you do to help those who have served. The support, fellowship and financial assistance you provide for our Texas veterans, for those on active duty and for those who return home broken from battle is critical to ensure our veterans are respected, that their sacrifices are recognized and their return to civilian life is eased.
But there is more we must do. First we must improve your access to healthcare. No veteran who has fought for this country should be denied access to healthcare because of bureaucratic bungling at the Veteran’s Administration. Having served on the frontlines, you should go to the front of the line to get the healthcare you need.
The VA in Washington is falling short of its obligations. Nowhere is that more apparent than in the RGV. Even the President recognizes this. On a trip to the RGV in 2008, Barack Obama said, “We need a VA hospital right here in the Valley.” Veterans shouldn’t have to drive 200 miles for treatment. It’s now 2015 and I’m calling on the President to keep his word. It’s time to build that VA hospital in the Rio Grande Valley. This week – as Governor – I sent a request to the President asking that he fulfill his promise to build that hospital to care for our veterans in the RGV.
The timing couldn’t be better. We’re opening a new medical school and a state-of-the-art hospital at UTRGV. The co-location of a VA hospital at UTRGV would be a force multiplier ensuring that the growing number of veterans in South Texas have access to first rate healthcare.
That first rate care includes mental healthcare. If a veteran or service member asks for help with PTSD, we can’t allow the backlog at the VA to prevent timely care. I am calling on the Texas Legislature to provide mental health screenings to veterans and service members at no cost.
We must also do more to help veterans in the job market. Texas leads the nation in job creation and yet the unemployment rate for our veterans remains high. That is unacceptable.
By lowering financial barriers, we can help Texas veterans create new jobs for yourselves and for others. That’s why I am asking the Texas Legislature to exempt new businesses – formed by veterans – from having to pay registration fees to the state to open their businesses. I’m also recommending that newly formed, veteran-owned businesses be exempt from paying state franchise taxes for the first five years. And I’m asking state licensing agencies to waive licensing exams and fees for veterans with the required education, training and practical experience gained in the military. If the training you received as an electrician, a technician or a lineman meets the standard of the United States Military, it should be good enough for the state of Texas.
As Governor, I will constantly work to find ways like these to help our veterans. It’s our duty to help those who helped make America so exceptional. And it’s our duty to honor those whose sacrifice has preserved our freedom.
Along those lines, I wanted you to be the first to know…In honor of a Texas son, a Navy SEAL and an American hero – a man who defended his brothers and sisters in arms on and off the battlefield – I am declaring February 2nd Chris Kyle Day in Texas. We will commemorate his passing. But more importantly, remembering his answering of the call of duty.
We thank Chris Kyle and all of you for your service and sacrifice. And we rededicate ourselves to a cause greater than ourselves. To freedom for our children, their children and for generations yet to be born. May God bless you and all who wear the uniform of the United States of America.
Chris Kyle was tragically killed in 2013 at a local gun range, by a fellow veteran.
The fight is on. Conservatives in Texas, off the heels of an election that clobbered the Democrats, (Note that not one statewide Democrat took more than 39% last week), are off and running towards the election by the Texas legislature for the Speaker of the House. Representative Scott Turner is running against current Speaker Republican Joe Straus, who Forbes called “The Harry Reid of Texas“. This week, it got heated to a boiling point.
Monday night, grassroots darling Giovanni Capriglione stunned a group of ardent supporters when he came out in full support of Straus. Boldly stating that “There is no race for Speaker for Scott Turner“, the Representative was faced with deafening silence that quickly turned into an angry crowd. Matt Krause (R-Fort Worth ), Jonathan Stickland (R-Bedford), and representative elect Tony Tinderholt (R-Arlington), the other three on a four person panel all disagreed.
In a quote from the meeting that was passed all over social media Tuesday, Stickland rebuked Capriglione. “It is a dangerous place to be if we vote based on what we think will be the outcome.”
Breitbart Texas reported that, “[Rep] Krause spoke up and said he thought Capriglione was wrong about support for Turner. He said, “I think Turner has more support. He’s a unique leader and would make a tremendous speaker of the house.”
Grassroots activists took action during the meeting as well as on social media in the aftermath.
Grassroots activist Michael Smith, who campaigned heavily for Capriglione and brought the question up at the meeting posted, “I am simply beyond words – I feel like I have been run over by a Mack truck with Giovanni’s decision to vote Straus“.
I don’t know where you stand. Two years ago you ran against Joe Straus. I remember it specifically. You ran on pro-life and limited government. But what happened? To vote for Joe Straus undermines everything we are about.
Morgan McComb, another grassroots stalwart in Texas Politics wrote: “I was sitting on the front row, right in front of him when he decided to BETRAY Texas. The people in the room had money and sweat equity in him. They sat polls from sun up to sun down and took money from their social security checks on his promise to not be more of the same. People in the room were crying, some were mad and many like myself could not believe what we were seeing.”
The entire Texas Grassroots spent the day in discussions about making it clear that Rep. Capriglione had severely disappointed them with his major flip-flop. Emails were sent, his FB pages were flooded, his past FB posts showing how he stood concerning Speaker Straus were archived. Any thoughts that the very active Texas Grassroots were relaxing after a great election last week were surely put to rest.
The very active Texas Grassroots took a major offense to Giovanni’s defeatist flip-flop. In the weeks heading toward the vote for Speaker that takes place on the first day of the Texas legislative session in January, it looks to be a heated contest that will take a front seat in a state where elections and politics are very ‘Front Porch’. It will be very interesting to watch it play out.
They say politics brings out the worst in you. If you have no integrity you’ll lie, cheat, and steal to win because you can’t win based on your platform. Case in point, @WendyDavisTexas this week on Twitter. Twitter mistakes happen like typos, forgetting to include the link or photo, etc. What happened was not a mistake, but a deliberate attempt to mislead voters of Texas. I don’t know who in Wendy Davis’ campaign is behind the lies, but it doesn’t matter who did it. What does matter is that they were caught.
Meet Lauren McCue, also known as @LMcCue26 on Twitter. Miss McCue had her identity temporarily hijacked by team Wendy when a photo of her along with fellow conservative Republican friends was posted using a fake twitter account @Lisa_in_Austin (which has since been deactivated) claiming these awesome young voters support Davis. Not even close! The photo actually is of members of the College Republican Federation of Virginia who campaigned together supporting Scott Rigell and Ed Gillespe in Virginia Beach. Lauren McCue is on the far left, in a yellow dress.
Lauren noticed the tweet and immediately called Davis out on her lies, which shortly after went viral on Twitter. Lauren has picked up some new followers because of her stand and has posted an open letter to Wendy Davis on her conservative blog, Ladies Leading Liberty.
I am a strong, fearless, conservative young woman and I am now dedicated to exposing you and your lies. Guess what? There is a conservative army behind me . I am not alone.
I am a part of the conservative army Lauren speaks of. I have campaigned for Republican candidates running for office as one of hundreds of other young Americans willing to work hard for a conservative candidate. The conservative young American army is larger than people realize. We care about our country and aren’t waiting till we can vote to have a say. Like Lauren McCue, young conservatives willingly support a candidate that upholds our values of life and constitutional liberties as outlined in the amendments and national sovereignty. Candidates like Matt Bevin, Chris McDaniel, Rob Maness, Terri Lynn Land inspire us with their integrity and proper view of the role of government.
While campaigning for Matt Bevin in the Kentucky Republican Senate primary election, we had a large group of young people, Youth for Bevin, knocking on thousands of doors, phone banking, and sign waving. We had a great time, worked very hard and used social media to support Matt Bevin’s campaign as much as possible. Team Mitch noticed our tweets, photos and energy and felt threatened.
I know why Wendy Davis team did it. They don’t have young supporters willing to campaign for them. They aren’t letting that stop them. Why have actual youth supporters when you can just right-click on a picture? No need to engage young Americans and try to motivate or inspire them with your principles of freedom, as outlined in the constitution. Oh wait, that’s right, you don’t support those values. Instead you seek power and control over the very people you hope and pray will elect you into office. Well that explains it.
Heads up to all of the youth out there campaigning for conservatives: Wear a campaign shirt, or button, or hold up signs or all three. Make it impossible for them to steal your photo.
A recent poll out today by UT/IT of Texas shows Greg Abbot leading Wendy Davis in the Governor’s race by 16 points. Texas voters will elect their next Governor on Tuesday, November 4th, 2014.
The Supreme Court has blocked Texas from enforcing key parts of a 2013 law that would close all but eight of the state’s abortion facilities.
The justices largely granted the request of abortion providers Tuesday. With three dissenting votes, the court suspended a ruling by the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals that allowed Texas to enforce a rule making abortion clinics statewide spend millions of dollars on hospital-level upgrades.
The appeals court’s ruling suspended an August decision by U.S. District Judge Lee Yeakel, who found that such upgrades were less about safety than making access to abortion difficult.
Yeakel’s ruling stopped the requirements, so the state appealed. The 5th Circuit is still considering the overall constitutionality of the measure but allowed it to go into effect.
The gloves are off.
The Republican establishment is about to feel the power of the people – yet again!
Former Alaska Governor and Vice Presidential nominee Sarah Palin endorsed Kristina Pierson and Greg Abbott in their prospective races in Texas.
If anyone can rally the Conservative base, it’s Sarah Palin.
But it’s NOT just Conservatives energized by Palin’s announcement. Call them grassroots, call them Tea Party, call them independents, libertarians, disillusioned Democrats, disgruntled Republicans, call them disenfranchised fed up Americans- but by ALL means- call them “We The People.”
Katrina Pierson is running against Pete Sessions, who reportedly spends more time with his new wife in Florida than he does in Texas, – voting against the will of his constituency when it comes to fiscal responsibility, Obamacare, amnesty and spying on the American people by the NSA.
Pierson is endorsed by The Tea Party- and Tea Party Express chairman Amy Kremer wrote an insightful op-ed about her for Rare- Katrina Pierson And Her Story Are What the Republican Party Desperately Needs. –
Sarah Palin’s Facebook Post Endorsing Kristina Pierson and Greg Abbott of Texas
Texas, it starts with you!
2014 is here. The choices are becoming clearer, and the battle lines are being drawn. The GOP Beltway crowd has convinced itself that the way to maintain or retake the majority is through compromise and capitulation on important issues like amnesty, Obamacare, and the ever-increasing federal debt. They think that by making deals with a deeply unpopular and divisive incumbent president on issues that Americans oppose, they’ll somehow endear themselves to voters.
Enough is enough. The permanent political class in D.C. won’t listen. So, let’s start putting our efforts behind good new candidates who will go to Washington not to line their own pockets, but to help restore our country. It’s time to put inspiration, ingenuity, and integrity over incumbency in the GOP.
Let’s start in Texas. The lines couldn’t be clearer. Katrina Pierson is an emerging leader and important voice for the future of the grassroots conservative movement. Her life’s story is full of hardships she has fought to overcome, which taught her firsthand the importance of self-reliance, hard work, and the blessings of liberty.
A feisty fighter for freedom, Katrina is taking on a powerful incumbent who has so lost touch with the people of his district that he’s not even bothering to spend much time in Texas anymore. It’s not only his district he’s lost touch with, but also the issues important to the voters there. He used his powerful position to oppose the movement to defund Obamacare, has voted to raise the debt ceiling, and has been an advocate for the NSA intrusion into our freedoms. When asked about Katrina’s primary challenge, he said, “these things happen.” Yes, they do. We all know what happens when we come together to support a good candidate like Katrina – the permanent political class loses and We the People win! We win by electing a fighter we can depend on like Katrina Pierson. Ted Cruz calls Katrina “an utterly fearless principled conservative.” He should know. Katrina was among the conservative grassroots warriors in Texas who worked tirelessly to elect Senator Cruz.
Early voting started yesterday, Texas. Get out now and vote for Katrina. Send a message to the GOP elites on behalf of Katrina, just like you did for Ted Cruz in 2012.
And while you are out there voting for Katrina, check the box for another good conservative – Greg Abbott for Governor of Texas. Like Katrina, Greg has overcome many personal obstacles and challenges, which have made him a believer in the power of liberty and the need to defend our freedoms from the overreach of an out-of-control federal government. If he is good enough for Ted Nugent, he is good enough for me!
God bless you and God bless America.
– Sarah Palin
On Tuesday, a divided United States Supreme Court voted 5-4 to allow Texas to continue enforcing abortion restrictions that opponents say have led more than a third of the state’s clinics to stop providing abortions.
From the USA Today:
The justices voted 5-4 Tuesday to leave in effect a provision requiring doctors who perform abortions in clinics to have admitting privileges at a nearby hospital.
The court’s conservative majority refused the plea of Planned Parenthood and several Texas abortion clinics to overturn a preliminary federal appeals court ruling that allowed the provision to take effect.
The four liberal justices dissented.
Although, this will go through more appeals, a small victory has been made today. God has blessed Texas yet again. Today is a victory for children. It’s a victory for life.
