In the newest video footage released by the Center for Medical Progress, a Planned Parenthood abortionist laughs as she discusses her hope of removing the intact “calvarium,” or skull, of an unborn baby while preserving both lobes of the brain, Breaking Christian News reports.
She also describes how she first dismembers babies up to twenty weeks gestation, including two twenty-week babies she said she aborted the week before. Dr. Amna Dermish, an abortionist with Planned Parenthood of Greater Texas, told undercover investigators she had never been able to remove the calvarium (skull) of an aborted child “intact,” but she hopes to.
“Maybe next time,” the investigator said. “I know, right?” Dr. Dermish replied. “Well, this’ll give me something to strive for.”
Dermish, who performs abortions up to the 20-week legal limit in Austin, then described the method she used to collect fetal brain and skull specimens.
“If it’s a breech presentation [in which the baby is born feet first] I will remove the extremities first—the lower extremities—and then go for the spine,” she began.
She then slides the baby down the birth canal until she can snip the spinal cord.
