There's a disturbing video going viral that has put the website called Stem Express in the hot seat. The YouTube video is titled "Planned Parenthood Uses Partial-Birth Abortions to Sell Baby Parts," and its description unveils how it was the result of a three-year investigation into Planned Parenthood and their alleged selling of partial-birth abortion baby body parts.As reported by Newsweek, after the YouTube video went viral, Bobby Jindal announced an investigation into the charges that Planned Parenthood could potentially be involved in the illegal process of selling aborted fetus parts to sites like "Stem Express" or others.
In the video, the actual order form from a website called "Stem Express" can be seen, although the "Stem Express" website is conveniently down for "maintenance" at the moment. However, the Google cache of the "Stem Express" website is still live and shows the order form for fetal body parts as seen in the video.
Choices for the purchase of fetal body parts, organs, and other "tissue" such as the brain, heart, lungs and liver, and more can still be seen on the Google cache of the "Stem Express" website.
The YouTube video itself has gained more than 700,000 views in approximately 24 hours, and the way it exposes Planned Parenthood and Stem Express and the quotes gleaned therein are shocking to viewers.
Overall, what's striking to viewers of the Stem Express/Planned Parenthood melee is the casual and seemingly cold way that the buying and selling of aborted fetus body parts -- which reportedly go for $30 to $100 each -- are discussed over a meal.
Details about fetuses being turned into the breech position in order to salvage certain body parts are disturbing.
Discussions about livers and lungs being requested (especially the highly-requested livers) bring questions about the demand for such organs and their ultimate use after being extracted from the aborted fetuses.
Quotes like "good for them" and revelations of behind-closed-door discussions about how the Supreme Court's views on abortion will affect the buying and selling of these organs and body parts strike some viewers as callous.

As reported by the Inquisitr, the Planned Parenthood video reveals a discussion about the buying and selling of aborted fetus parts, which is illegal. Meanwhile, the main service of "Human tissue procurement and distribution" that Stem Express provides can be seen in the portions of their website that Google indexed prior to it going offline.
The Stem Express product catalog for 2015 is online, with verbiage about respect for human life.
"We recognize that all humans have inherent dignity, rights, beliefs and perceptions that cannot be sacrificed for scientific or economic benefit. The public good is a collective good that should always be taken into account. StemExpress is committed to ensuring that this respect is rooted in all that we do."The Stem Express shopping page for fetal liver options shows fetal liver cells that sell for nearly $25,000.
