Planned Parenthood facing new allegations of illegally selling aborted baby tissue

 New evidence has emerged to show that Planned Parenthood "sells late-term aborted baby body parts in violation of federal law," just as we have been reporting for years.

Planned Parenthood allegedly forged a partnership with the University of California - San Diego (UCSD) to profit from the "harvesting and sale" of aborted human babies for "research patents."

"This new evidence shows Planned Parenthood sells late-term aborted baby body parts in violation of federal law, for far more money than has ever been discussed before," said David Daleiden, founder and president of the California-based Center for Medical Progress, which filed a public records request to obtain this damning information.

"Planned Parenthood's national headquarters knew about and approved these sales of aborted babies for valuable consideration as part of government-funded research grants."


UCSD, Planned Parenthood of the Pacific Southwest committing federal crimes

The unearthed documents show that Planned Parenthood has been explicitly sending the aborted baby body parts to UCSD for "valuable consideration" in exchange for ownership of the patents and intellectual property the university develops upon experimenting with the tissue.

A "Biological Materials Transfer Agreement" spells out the alleged deal, though much of the information is redacted. The document shows that Planned Parenthood granted UCSD "access" to "fetal and placental tissue," which are described as the "proprietary materials" of Planned Parenthood San Diego. 

In return for all this, the deal allows Planned Parenthood full rights to "patents" and "intellectual property" developed through experiments with the "material," also known as the aborted baby body parts and tissue.

Signed in 2009, the contract was updated in 2014 to reflect Planned Parenthood's regional renaming to "Planned Parenthood of the Pacific Southwest." All of the original terms and conditions from the original contract remained in full force and effect, the update stipulated.

Emails sent by UCSD in 2017 refer to the contract while updating an additional contract for clinical personnel. Later emails in 2020 show the university requesting that parties involved remain "especially careful" about "any rights" that the providers of fetal tissue "retain" in the "material."

It cannot be emphasized enough that federal law explicitly forbids this type of arrangement between Planned Parenthood of the Pacific Southwest and UCSD. The "valuable consideration" portion, meaning the exchanging of aborted baby parts for profit, is at the crux of the crime, especially since UCSD's research is leading to the creation of patents.

During the 2021-22 academic year, the University of California (UC) system generated more than $127 million in revenue for all patent inventions, Daleiden said in his statement.

Violations of applicable federal laws in this case are punishable by up to 10 years of prison and a fine of up to $500,000, says the Center for Medical Progress.

Other emails exchanged between UCSD and Planned Parenthood of the Pacific Southwest show plans for collaborative research meetings, including a quarterly meeting in which a "payment" is to be discussed.

In an email written by UCSD employees, one of the meetings was scheduled to "have results to share on samples recently collected," as well as to discuss the formation of a "fellowship."

Planned Parenthood's response to that email states that there are "[n]o current issues with the collection program," but that the abortion provider has "some questions about payment to the residency program."

Keep in mind that UCSD is a taxpayer-funded operation, meaning California and U.S. taxpayers, in the case of federal funding, are paying for this illegal racket to take place.
