Center for Medical Progress President David Daleiden said in a release that the video demonstrates that abortionists at Planned Parenthood only follow the "law on paper", while ignoring it in practice.

The nation's largest abortion chain provides its doctors with forms that document the intent to use digoxin to kill a second or third trimester baby before dismembering them in the womb in order to comply with the federal partial-birth abortion ban, according to Prabhakaran.

A Planned Parenthood clinic in northwest in has halted abortions because of a state law that involves doctors' admitting privileges marking the first time the state has used the law to stop services. "So, like, there's like a checkbox", Prabhakaran states, "so it would be before the procedure, you do your evaluation, you write, 'I intend to utilize dismemberment techniques for this procedure'".

A senior Planned Parenthood official told undercover investigators that its abortionists skirt the federal ban on partial-birth abortion by documenting the use of a poison that they never end up using in late term procedures. "So every time you do a procedure, that's how you document".

"To comply with the partial-birth abortion ban, you basically have to say, 'I intend to utilize dismemberment techniques for this procedure, ' " Ms. Prabhakaran tells undercover pro-life activists posing as fetal tissue buyers.

By marking a box showing intent to perform a dismemberment abortion, in which the baby is removed in pieces, and not use the deadly digoxin, Parabhakaran says at 5:52 in the video, "I'm not doing digoxin, and we're just gonna document and there's never been a problem". "I trained to just do the documentation and not do digoxin".

"The Federal [Partial-Birth] Abortion Ban is a law, and laws are up to interpretation".

"So there are some people who interpret [the partial-birth abortion ban] as, it's intent", Nucatola says. "So if I say on Day 1 I do not intend to do this, what ultimately happens doesn't matter", Nucatola said.

Planned Parenthood did not return request for comment.

The Washington Times reported that Daleiden released a statement along with the video's release.

"After seeing this, many Americans may find themselves asking why and how Planned Parenthood is still permitted to do business, let alone receive more than $500 million a year", Ms. Dannenfelser said in a statement.

"We immediately stopped providing abortion services and directed patients to other facilities", Christine Gillespie, president and CEO of Planned Parenthood of IN and Kentucky, said IN a statement.
