    Another video has been released showing a top official from the abortion provider Planned Parenthood discussing sales of aborted fetuses, medical watchdog Center for Medical Progress announced in a statement.

    NEW YORK (Sputnik) — The video, which has since been posted to YouTube, shows Gatter speaking with undercover actors posing as buyers from a human biologics company and detailing the price of the body parts.

    “A second undercover video shows Planned Parenthood Federation of America’s Medical Directors’ Council President, Dr. Mary Gatter, haggling over payments for intact fetal specimens and offering to use a ‘less crunchy technique’ to get more intact body parts,” the Center for Medical Progress stated on Tuesday.

    “I just don’t want to lowball, $75 a specimen,” Gatter said.

    The video also shows Gatter discussing previous sales of fetuses.

    “Let me just figure out what others are getting, and if this is in the ballpark, then it’s fine, if it’s still low, then we can bump it up,” Gatter stated. “I want a Lamborghini.”

    Gatter allegedly suggested modifying the abortion procedure to provide more intact fetuses.

    “I wouldn’t object to asking Ian, who’s our surgeon who does the cases, to use an IPAS [manual vacuum aspirator] at that gestational age in order to increase the odds that he’s going to get an intact specimen,” Gatter noted.

    The second video was released a week after an initial video showed Doctor Deborah Nucatola, who has overseen medical practice at all Planned Parenthood locations since 2009, admitting to selling body parts of aborted fetuses.

    In the first video, Nucatola described Planned Parenthood as being very good at obtaining hearts, lungs and livers due to a modified abortion procedure that tries to preserve these organs while killing the fetus.

    Since the release of the first video, several US lawmakers, including presidential hopeful Rand Paul, have called to defund Planned Parenthood. The critics have stated the recent video revelations make it obvious the abortion provider does not have any respect for the sanctity of human life.

    Rand vowed to demand a vote in the US Senate next week to end government funding for the abortion provider.

    Selling or purchasing human fetal tissue is a felony in the United States and is punishable by up to ten years in prison.

    Planned Parenthood, a non-profit organization that researches and gives advice on contraception, parenthood and reproduction, receives nearly $528 million annually. The organization has more than 700 health centers across the United States and facilitates approximately 81,000 abortions annually, according to its website.
