In an interview with Breitbart News, Dr. Theresa Deisher made some startling claims about what would actually be involved in harvesting the organs of aborted babies. According to Deisher, who holds a PhD in molecular and cellular physiology from Stanford University, the baby would have to be alive within five minutes of the heart being removed. It’s a nauseating turn of events and if true would mean that Planned Parenthood is most certainly breaking yet another law. And worse, it would mean that the organization, which receives federal funding, is letting living children die in order to harvest their organs and maximize their profits.
If you read scientific publications, in which they use the fetal material for some indications, particularly, cardiovascular, or nerve cell research, they discuss the necessity of having tissue in the digesting buffer solution within five minutes for optimal yields. So, within five minutes of death, you would have to have the heart removed, and flushed of all blood, cleaned of any extra tissue that might be there, and the heart put into a liquid with enzymes that would digest the connective tissue and release the muscle cells.
Sometimes, they use an apparatus where they hook the heart up and they would flush fluid through it to keep it alive and beating. And you can’t have a dead heart that’s going to work in that kind of process.

Deisher added that in order for the organs of aborted babies to be useful for research purposes, the baby would actually have to be alive.
Biomedical companies prefer gestational ages of greater than 20 weeks for heart muscle. This is from reading their publications; so, I have always suspected that the babies in some of these cases were alive until their hearts were cut out.
Listening from the first [Center for Medical Progress] video where they talk about getting an intact [corpus] callosum—that’s like a partial birth — the head would have to be through the canal in order to get that material.
Deisher has pioneered work with adult stem cells after she decided that she couldn’t be both pro-life and in favor using fetal stem cells. She argues that the undercover videos from Planned Parenthood offer even more evidence of the barbarity and immorality of what is happening in abortion clinics across the country.
I don’t think that any American can imagine fully what is happening in these clinics. And, visually, perhaps, they need to see it. I think it’s important that people see the reality of what’s done. It’s absolutely barbaric.
Regardless of whether someone is in favor of a woman’s right to abort her baby, or not — this is just something that a civilized society does not allow, condone, or support.
I mean, we don’t even allow prisoners condemned to death to be approached for [organ] donation because it’s unethical. So, as a society we know this is wrong — we have laws against it. And while people like to say the babies are going to die anyway — they’re going to be aborted — it’s sort of like an execution that’s planned, and we as a society recognize that it’s absolutely unethical to take advantage of the remains of that human being.
