A new undercover video claims to show a Planned Parenthood executive haggling “over baby parts prices.”
It’s the latest clip in an ongoing video series from the Center for Medical Progress, a pro-life group that purports to have secretly recorded evidence showing that the abortion provider has engaged in the sale of fetal body parts — a claim Planned Parenthood has consistently and adamantly denied.
“New undercover video shows Dr. Mary Gatter, the Planned Parenthood senior executive who infamously laughed ‘I want a Lamborghini’ about payments for aborted fetal parts, again haggling over per-specimen pricing for livers, lungs, and brains, even while insisting the purchaser must do all the work to harvest,” reads a press release from the Center for Medical Progress.
Dr. Gatter, president of the Medical Directors’ Council at Planned Parenthood Federation of America, is seen in the new clip discussing reimbursements for fetal remains with an undercover investigator who was posing as a buyer for a biotech company.
The CMP press release captures some of the dialogue:
During the conversation, Gatter advises, “You know, you have to pay a little money to use the space.” After asking for a ballpark figure, the buyer observes, “Most people now seem to be doing per specimen.”
“Per specimen. Like $75 a specimen?” Gatter replies. After the buyer asks for clarification, Gatter repeats, “$75 a specimen, or $50 a specimen?” The buyer replies, “What we’ve been quoting is $50 per specimen. I think some people are doing more, some slightly less.”
Gatter then comments, “Yeah, $50’s on the low end, $50 [per specimen] was like 12 years ago.”
The physician also discussed the requirements for anyone coming into Planned Parenthood from the biotech company to harvest and prepare the remains.
“We have to make sure that your staff who are on site are credentialed, privileges, whatever — background checks and all that stuff,” she said. “You have to pay a little money to use the space. It’s not a lot. We’re not greedy about that.”

The video is heavily edited, so it is difficult to determine what could potentially be missing from the conversation, though David Daleiden, head of the Center for Medical Progress, made the point that biotech buyers setting up shop inside clinics purportedly means that there are essentially “no reimbursable costs under the law.”
As you might recall, Gatter was also previously highlighted in a separate undercover clip, saying that Planned Parenthood isn’t “in it for the money” and that she had concerns over tissue procurement procedures, as TheBlaze noted at the time.
“We don’t want to be in a position of being accused of selling tissue and stuff like that,” Gatter said. “On the other hand, there are costs associated with the use of our space, and all that kind of stuff.”
The doctor was heavily criticized in the former clip for quipping “I want a Lamborghini” while discussing “compensation.”
