Fox News has made available online a special report that it aired early last month highlighting the undercover video exposé on Planned Parenthood’s "fetal tissue" business.
Planned Parenthood: The Hidden Harvest originally aired September 4 and features exclusive details about the making of the videos as well as a glimpse into a dark industry and an area of lab experimentation that many didn’t even know existed.
“Various polls have shown that many Americans still remain unaware of the profitable after-market in baby parts that line the pockets of abortion providers, including Planned Parenthood,” noted Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, who was interviewed for the special.
“This special should be required viewing for every voter and taxpayer in America,” he added. “The videos … clearly show that Planned Parenthood illegally alters the abortion procedures it uses to get intact organs, is illegally paid for these organs, and is fully aware that every abortion kills a human being. If these were just ‘the products of conception’ being eliminated, they would not be so profitable.”
Since the release of the first video on July 14, anger and scrutiny has increased against Planned Parenthood. Sadly, voices on the political Left have mostly been silent or defensive of the organization. Some prominent figures claim not to have even viewed the videos.
For the past few months, NRB President & CEO Dr. Jerry A. Johnson has urged government leaders and the general public to watch the footage and to speak out against the practices uncovered. “There should be voices raised in defiance of Planned Parenthood across the political spectrum,” he said. “These videos clearly indicate that both mothers and children are being victimized, apparently without remorse.”
Dr. Johnson has also called upon NRB members to make sure their listeners, viewers, and congregations know that #PPSellsBabyParts and to urge Congress to #DefundPP.
“If the media juggernauts of our nation won’t reveal the truth, we need to. We have broadcasts. We have websites and online streams. We have microphones. Let’s get the word out!” he urged.

As Fr. Pavone noted, “it is so important for people to watch this Fox special … so they are armed with the information they need to urge their elected representatives to stop funding Planned Parenthood.”
