New video clips released Monday show Planned Parenthood leaders admitting under oath to altering abortion procedures to harvest the most "usable" organs and tissues from unborn babies to sell.

The new video published by The Center for Medical Progress includes deposition testimony from Dr. Deborah Nucatola, Planned Parenthood Federation of America's former senior director of medical services who now holds a regional leadership position with the abortion company.

In CMP's first undercover video released in 2015, Nucatola explained how she used ultrasound technology to guide her as she flipped the unborn baby to a breech position for intact extraction and successful whole organ harvesting.

According to medical critics, shifting the baby to a feet-first position is the illegal procedure known as partial-birth abortion.

When questioned by congressional investigators, Nucatola denied that such abortions were practiced in Planned Parenthood's fetal tissue research programs.

In CPM's latest video, however, Nucatola confirmed under oath that she did adjust where she grasped the baby with the forceps to avoid crushing certain organs if she was "aware that it was a donation case, yes."

The newly unsealed video also includes deposition testimony of Tram Nguyen, vice president of abortion access at Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast in Houston.

In 2019, Nguyen explained that abortionists circumvent partial-birth abortion laws when extracting an intact baby by signing a statement saying that was not the "intent."

When asked under oath if it was her understanding that an abortion provider could obtain an intact baby provided the form was signed, Nguyen said, "Yes." Additionally, when asked if it was true that intact abortions occur in spite of the form, Nguyen testified, "It is true."
