The CEO admitted to selling intact heads and beating hearts from fetuses in the court of law.
The founder and CEO of biotech firm StemExpress gave shocking testimony last week when she admitted that her company provides intact heads and beating hearts harvested from fetuses to medical researchers.
The CEO admitted in court that a baby’s head could either be acquired attached to the baby’s body or “could be torn away” depending on the situation.
“That is an especially gruesome admission, but it begs the question: how did they get these fully intact human children?” asks lawyer Peter Breen, who is representing activists from the Center for Medical Progress.
Breen stated in court that Stanford University studies have used Langendorff perfusion, a technique requiring a beating heart. He asked the StemExpress CEO if her company had supplied Stanford with this tissue.
“Does StemExpress supply fetal hearts to Stanford?” Breen asked.
“Yes, we have provided heart tissue to Stanford,” she responded after being instructed by Judge Christopher Hite to give a straight answer.
Activists David Daleiden and Sandra Merritt recorded individuals from the abortion industry boasting about their lucrative fetal trafficking operation, and released the information in a series of videos. For their ground-breaking journalistic work, they are being prosecuted for violating the privacy of the offenders they exposed.
“If you have a fetus with an intact head and an intact body, and intact extremities, that is something that would indicate that child was born alive, and then had their organs cut out of them, or that that child was the victim of an illegal partial-birth abortion,” said Breen to LifeSiteNews.
“Both of these are gruesome and violent acts,” he added.
Daleiden and Merritt are facing 15 felony counts for the illegal recording of confidential information for the videos they released in 2015. The trafficking of baby body parts is a felony, but authorities do not seem concerned with holding the powerful and influential abortion industry accountable.
The legal team for Daleiden and Merritt is arguing that recording conversations in an open venue that can be overheard is not against the law. The lawyers are also arguing that the journalists deserve to be shielded from liability because they were exposing criminal activity with their trailblazing work.
Video was shown in the court of Jane Doe 12, who is believed to be the StemExpress CEO, talking with Daleiden and Merritt, who claimed to be apart of a biotech company to secure the meeting.
Doe 12 mentioned the growing demand for “raw fetal tissue,” and mentioned that “insanely fragile” neural tissue should be shipped “whole calvarium,” meaning the head should be kept intact during the trafficking operation.
“Just make sure the eyes are closed,” Daleiden quipped.
“Yeah,” Doe 12 responded while laughing, “Tell the lab techs its coming…it’s almost like they don’t want to know what it is.”
Breen noted that the StemExpress CEO’s comments made during her court testimony were not nearly as candid as those made by Doe 12 in the hidden camera video.
“One thing we’ve observed throughout these proceedings is that these witnesses were much more candid when they spoke to David and Susan on the undercover video than they are on the stand,” he said to LifeSiteNews.
“However, we have been able to establish certain facts that are important through their testimony, and when they deviate from the video, we’ve been able to use the video to show that they’re not telling the truth on the stand,” Breen added.
“That’s important to show that the attorney general is using witnesses who are willing to stretch the truth, and our side is exposing that truth,” he explained.
The preliminary hearings continue on Tuesday when the StemExpress CEO will re-take the stand and continue being questioned.
