Fetal Tissue Company Pulls Out Of Partnership With Planned Parenthood

Christian Datoc Audience Development Manager

Following the release of several videos alleging that Planned Parenthood is illegally selling aborted fetuses on the black market, a fetal tissue harvesting company has officially cut ties with the organization.

StemExpress — which worked with Planned Parenthood in several clinics across Northern California — notified both its former business partner and Congress of the split on Friday after both the House Energy and Commerce and Senate Judiciary committees inquired into the exact relationship between the two companies.

Two of the six videos released so far purportedly show a former StemExpress technician explain that she saw, “another technician appear to obtain fetal tissue without a patient’s consent,” though StemExpress has “unequivocally” denied the claim.
