Melissa Farrell, Director of Research for Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast
The pro-life advocates behind the four shocking videos exposing Planned Parenthood selling the body parts of aborted babies for research have released a 5th video today that catches a Planned Parenthood official discussing how the abortion business sells “fully intact” aborted babies.
The video, which follows Senate Democrats defeating a bill to de-fund Planned Parenthood, makes it appear the Planned Parenthood abortion business may be selling the “fully intact” bodies of unborn babies purposefully born alive and left to die.
Planned Parenthood could be breaking the federal law known as the Born Alive Infants Protection Act that requires abortion clinics, hospitals and other places that do abortions to provide appropriate medical care for a baby born alive after a failed abortion or purposefully birthed to “let die.” That would be one of the potential ways Planned Parenthood could produce a “fully intact” baby to sell to StemExpress for research. Most “crunchy” abortion methods would do damage to the baby’s body.
The fifth undercover video in the controversy over Planned Parenthood’s sale of aborted baby parts shows the Director of Research for Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast, Melissa Farrell, advertising the Texas Planned Parenthood branch’s track record of fetal tissue sales, including its ability to deliver fully intact aborted babies.

In a repulsive demonstration of hostility towards Christians, the City of Houston wants to bulldoze one church and condemn the property of another so they can build affordable housing and a public library.
Attorneys representing the Christian Fellowship Missionary Baptist Church and the Latter Day Deliverance Revival Center were in court Tuesday asking a judge to issue a temporary restraining order preventing the city from taking their property.
“The government cannot take a church’s property and give it to some other business in violation of the law,” said Hiram Sasser, the deputy chief counsel for Liberty Institute. “These churches, their congregations, and this neighborhood are not for sale.”
Both congregations are located in Houston’s Fifth Ward – which has a notorious history of violence and crime.
Liberty Institute said the ministries of both churches have been credited with turning the neighborhood around – reducing crime and drug use.
In his over 40-year fight to abolish the slave trade, William Wilberforce became known for his personality, patience, and political gravitas. In 1787, Thomas Clarkson met with Wilberforce for the first time and gave Wilberforce his essay on the slave trade. Together, the two men formed a partnership that lasted for 50 years, and which ultimately resulted in abolishing slavery in the British empire.
Gathering and then spreading as much knowledge—including as many horrifying details about the slave trade as he could, especially to his political rivals and allies—became Wilberforce’s mission. As Wilberforce said in an 1789 speech to the House of Commons: “How then, can the House refuse its belief to the multiplied testimonies…of the savage treatment of the Negroes in the middle passage. There indeed, what need is there for any evidence? The number of deaths speaks for itself and makes all such inquiry superfluous.”
The Planned Parenthood videos released so far have been disturbing, but the most recent is particularly atrocious. Although one of their many purposes is undoubtedly to show that Planned Parenthood has been intentionally procuring and profiting from aborted body parts, one of the subsidiary “benefits” is that it sheds a different kind of spotlight on the reality that abortion is the murder of tiny human beings. You can’t change a cultural norm (which is most certainly what abortion has become) if no one knows what it looks like, if no one understands the realities of what occurs. As Wilberforce said, “You may choose to look the other way, but you can never say again that you did not know.”
As my colleague D.C. McAllister points out, “Slavery was institutionalized racism. Abortion today is institutionalized murder. I find it ironic that we continue to hear about the guilt of America being its racist past, yet there is little said about the guilt of America for its murderous present. The supremacy of death and the dehumanization of our children are inherent in these laws. Similar to the supremacy of whites and the dehumanization of blacks in slavery.”

As The Daily Signal and 2nd Vote have revealed, corporate America is a major source of revenue for Planned Parenthood. While less than the half-billion in taxpayer dollars Planned Parenthood receives annually, corporate contributions made up a healthy piece of the $127 million in “excess revenue” the ostensible nonprofit received last year alone.
But while corporate America has been comfortable donating funds to Planned Parenthood for years, it has been far less willing to give—or even allow its employees to give—to religious charities.
As their gifts to an organization whose senior officials have been caught on video haggling over money for baby hearts, lungs and livers have come under fire, many of these corporations have begun to back away from their relationship with Planned Parenthood. Planned Parenthood even had to pre-empt the controversy by hiding the names of its corporate donors. Many of the companies sought to diminish the significance of their gifts to Planned Parenthood, explaining that the contributions were simply matching gifts for employee contributions through the company’s charitable campaign.
But if this kind of employee-directed donations is no big deal, why are religious charities often excluded? Continue reading
Orrick’s wife, Caroline “Linie” Farrow Orrick, is a clown and artist with an interest in outdoor athletic endeavors. She partners with her husband in their political decisions and she is his co-bundler according to Public Citizen. She’s also a public supporter of extreme abortion policies.
Her YouTube user page shows that the first video she ever “liked” was from an extreme pro-abortion group called the Center for Reproductive Justice. The slick, celebrity-laden video called for people to sign a “bill of rights” that asserts a right to abortion on demand through all nine months of pregnancy, a position shared by very few Americans. It further calls for taxpayer funding of contraception, abortifacients and abortion. And, finally, it says that all health care plans should be required under penalty of law to cover abortion, abortifacients, and other anti-reproductive services — even if they have religious objections such as those held by the Little Sisters of the Poor.
Will women have access to the health services they need if the government defunds Planned Parenthood?
That depends on whom you ask.
“Absolutely,” said Jay Hobbs, communications director for Heartbeat International, a pro-life organization that assists with pregnancies.
“If Planned Parenthood were gone tomorrow, the nation’s 2,500 pregnancy help centers, medical clinics, maternity homes and non-profit adoption agencies would continue to offer true choice, true empowerment to every mother who is facing an unexpected pregnancy.”
