Leaked footage of the National Abortion Federation (NAF) annual conference for Planned Parenthood and other abortionists, which was previously under a restraining order, has been obtained by Students for Life of America (SFLA), who has created a video of some of the worst highlights from the footage. The tapes of their conference feature a panel of late-term abortion providers presenting how it makes abortionists feel to dismember a fetus and inflict pain, and describes the gruesome realities of heads getting stuck, and eyeballs falling into their laps during an abortion procedure – to the laughter and applause of panel attendees.
This undercover investigative footage was recorded by the Center for Medical Progress at the NAF conference in San Francisco on April 7, 2014, and was leaked to the public by GotNews on October 23, 2015. A judge stopped the Center for Medical Progress from releasing the tapes but not from others posting them. SFLA is the only group that has combed through the leaked footage and created a mashup of some of the more egregious quotes: http://bit.ly/1MicIPf.
“It’s no wonder NAF sought a restraining order – these tapes expose the gruesome reality that abortionists face every day, and the kinds of illogical justifications they use to end the lives of tiny human beings,” said Kristan Hawkins, President of SFLA. “This is the reality of abortion – eyeballs dropping in the laps of abortionists, heads getting stuck, women in pain – and to hear advocates laughing about the dismembering of babies is stomach-churning. Would the general public be laughing along with them?”
The NAF is a professional association of abortion providers who say that half of all abortions performed in the United States are performed by their members.
Included on the panel are Dr. Lisa Harris from the University of Michigan, Dr. Uta Landy, the National Director of an abortion training program at the University of California – San Francisco and recipient of the Margaret Sanger Award from Planned Parenthood Federation of America, and Dr. Cassing Hammond, Associate Professor in Obstetrics and Gynecology-General at Northwestern University.
Some of the quotes in the SFLA video:
“Ignoring the fetus is a luxury of activists and advocates. When you’re a provider, you can’t ignore the fetus, because the fetus is a marker of how well you did” ~ Dr. Harris.
“My coping mechanism is to focus on the baby fetus. Reverence for something that was once alive, and now is not.” ~ Dr. Landy reading comments from abortionists
“We do recommend feticidal injections after a certain gestational age but interestingly only because we don’t believe we can guarantee at the extremes of the gestational age, depending on dating, that [they] won’t be subject to resuscitation against the patient’s wishes.” ~ Dr. Hammond
