Planned Parenthood worried over ‘bloody’ video to come, keeping Dr Deborah Nucatola from Congress

Planned Parenthood’s legal counsel has responded to the Congressional investigation noting that video footage may include the dissection and harvesting of an aborted baby and are refusing access to Dr. Deborah Nucatola.

Planned Parenthood’s Senior Counsel for Law and Policy, Roger K. Evans, has responded to the House Energy and Commerce Committee addressing the videos created and released by the Center for Medical Progress as “deeply concerned about the infiltration of Planned Parenthood and its affiliates.”

CMP formed a fictitious, California-based LLC calling itself Biomax Procurement Services.

“At this point, we do not know the full extent of Biomax’s illicit conduct,” the letter warned. “We believe that on at least one occasion a representative from Biomax was shown a highly sensitive area in a clinic where tissue is processed after abortion procedures” and such bloody work “is standard and essential during any abortion procedure,” but that filming that essential work “would be an extremely serious invasion of our patients’ privacy and dignity.”

“We also believe that in at least one interaction at a Planned Parenthood facility, the Biomax representative asked questions about the racial characteristics of tissue donated to researchers studying sickle cell anemia, apparently seeking to create a misleading impression” that Planned Parenthood targets African-Americans for abortion.

Congress is calling for Dr. Deborah Nucatola to appear before the Congressional committee which, together with the House Judiciary Committee, is investigating allegations that Planned Parenthood illegally profited from the sales of aborted babies’ organs and tissue.

“Your July 17 letter requests a staff briefing on one facet of Planned Parenthood’s efforts to improve public health: the tissue donation programs adopted by some of our affiliates,” the response states.

Planned Parenthood is offering to to send Dr. Raegan McDonald-Mosley and promised “to consult with you to find a time that accommodates your staff and Ranking Member [Democrat] Frank Pallone’s staff.”

Critics have said this move alone rebuffs Congressional investigators.

“The House committee did not ask Planned Parenthood to make Nucatola available if they felt like it,” Susan Michelle Tyrell wrote. “It requested she be available, period.”
