Doctor Says She’ll ‘Strive’ for Intact Fetal Skull in Latest Planned Parenthood Video

A Planned Parenthood doctor describes how she uses what may be a partial-birth abortion technique to deliver fetal trunks intact, then laughs as she says she will “strive” for an intact fetal skull in an undercover video released Tuesday.

The latest footage, the eleventh in a series of graphic videos by the pro-life Center for Medical Progress targeting the Planned Parenthood Federation of America, raises more questions as to whether the abortion provider is in violation of federal law.

“My aim is usually to get the specimens out pretty intact,” says Dr. Amna Dermish of Planned Parenthood of Greater Texas, speaking to center investigators posing as representatives of a fetal-tissue procurement company.

In the footage from Oct. 21, 2014, Dr. Dermish said she performs abortions up to 22 weeks’ gestation, and that she does not use the chemical digoxin on fetuses before 20 weeks.
