Planned Parenthood caught pricing body parts in video

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (BP) – A second undercover video released July 21 by the Center for Medical Progress (CMP) appears to show a Planned Parenthood doctor negotiating the price of baby parts obtained through abortion and discussing the possibility of varying abortion procedures to harvest intact organs.
