After the last Baby Body Parts Sales video we were promised that there were more to come and the next shoe seems to have dropped today. Life News has released a second video, this one with Mary Gatter, a senior medical director with PP in California. In a lunch meeting with individuals posing as representatives of a biotech firm, Gatter is asked numerous questions about the possibility of purchasing fetal organ tissue from Planned Parenthood clinics and her responses are once again rather ghastly in the cavalier tone she takes. Just as a trigger warning (if you’ll pardon the use of the phrase here) you should really bail out on reading this article if you have a weak stomach or are easily upset.

Gatter discusses the pricing of aborted baby body parts — telling the biotech company officials that the prices for such things as a baby’s liver, head or heart are negotiable. She also tells the officials that she could talk with the Planned Parenthood abortion practitioners to potentially alter the abortion procedure to kill the baby in a way that would best preserve those body parts after the unborn child is killed in the abortion.

The video shows Gatter haggling over payments for intact fetal specimens and offering to use a “less crunchy technique” to get more intact body parts.

Actors posing as buyers ask Gatter, “What would you expect for intact [fetal] tissue?

“Well, why don’t you start by telling me what you’re used to paying!” Gatter replies.

Toward the end of the discussion there doesn’t seem to be a firm price established, and the “biotech firm reps” are actually the ones arguing for paying PP a higher price, presumably to ensure that they get the best parts. Gatter seems to agree that she should get the highest price possible and then, unprompted, tosses out a comment which will probably be the “stop the presses” moment from this interview.

“Let me just figure out what others are getting, and if this is in the ballpark, then it’s fine, if it’s still low, then we can bump it up. I want a Lamborghini.”

She laughs after repeating the Lamborghini line, so it’s unclear how serious that comment is (if at all) but even if I assume she’s joking that’s far beyond the range of even gallows humor considering the topic at hand.

Having watched and listened to the entire video, I will say right up front that this one won’t be without controversy from PP either. Unfortunately, the eight minute video is heavily edited as with some we’ve seen in years past and many of the editing cuts take place right in the middle of or at the end of some of the most inflammatory statements by Gatter. I was unable to find a link to the full, unedited video in this case, so unless that turns up, Planned Parenthood will no doubt be arguing against the lack of full context. (And in fairness, we should have the full video before this is all over because it’s a valid question in any investigation.)
