An undercover video of a Michigan abortion provider that was banned by court order has been leaked online to the blog GotNews.com who then posted it along with several others. The Center for Medical Progress (CMP) officials deny being the source of the leak.
The hidden camera footage shot by the pro-life CMP denies leaking the videos and GotNews owner says they posted it because the court order stopping it is unconstitutional.
U.S. District Judge William Orrick issued the restraining order in August .
The videos were shot at the National Abortion Federation conferences in 2013, 2014, and 2015 and were given to the House committee investigating Planned Parenthood.
In some of the footage, a Renee Chelian, who owns a chain of abortion clinics in Michigan and who is not affiliated with Planned Parenthood, tells an audience of her frustrations trying to get rid of fetal remains.
She was sick to her stomach, not because she was tossing human beings remains in the garbage, but because she didn’t want to be on the front page of the New York Times. She needn’t worry – they NY Times doesn’t care.
“The garbage disposal was the completely legal option,” Chelian says. “Which made me sick to my stomach because there were about 45 clinics in the Detroit metropolitan area and many of them were using garbage disposals, so I was busy contacting everyone that we have to stop, [saying], ‘We can’t be on the front page of The New York Times. You shouldn’t be doing this, any of you.’
“They consistently showed me, like, a 40-year-old law in the state of Michigan that said medical waste was fine to go in the sewer system,” she added. “I couldn’t really argue with them.”
She has looked into funeral homes, pet crematoriums, dishwasher-style equipment, but finally decided to put the remains in bottles and toss them into her garbage disposal.
“We were really tempted to give the fetus back, but of course we couldn’t do that,” Chelian said. “We thought, ‘We’ll give it to everybody in a gift bag, they can take it home and figure out what to do with it. It’s their pregnancy and why is this our problem?’”
Everyone laughed hysterically.
The videos can be viewed here. The second video begins with the “funny” gift bag joke. Are we becoming insensitive? These are the same people who wouldn’t touch the hair on the head of an animal.
