"Since 2010, abortion has declined by 12% in our country. But, any baby lost to abortion is a loss, and we're losing over 3000 a day."

Alison Howard

The Planned Parenthood Baby Organ Profit Center

How much profit is in a baby liver?

About $11,000.

A few years ago Your Business Professor was needling his tax accountant. I asked him, “What will you do when everyone uses software to do taxes?” He says, “My business is growing and will continue—“

“But the numbers; the taxable income—the profit is easy to figure…”

He smiles, “But what is “profit?”

And that is the debate in #PlannedParenthood where #PPSellsBabyParts and #PPShoutYourStory

Your Business Professor teaches accounting students and graduate-level management classes. I also worked for decades in the medical business in tissue sampling, disposables and equipment.

So the debate on the profitability of organ donations caught my attention. Here’s the sell sheet,

The law is clear. Ovide Lamontagne, Esq., Americans United for Life, writes in National Review,

In particular, 42 U.S.C. 289g-2(a) makes it unlawful for any person “to knowingly acquire, receive, or otherwise transfer any fetal tissue for valuable consideration if the transfer affects interstate commerce” (emphasis added).

The law defines “valuable consideration” to exclude “reasonable payments associated with the transportation, implantation, processing, preservation, quality control, or storage of human fetal tissue.”

But like my CPA said, the “valuable consideration,” the remainder of sales minus expenses is open to interpretation.

The question becomes, Is $24,250 a “reasonable payment” in the sale of a human organ? Planned Parenthood claims they are just covering their expenses. StemExpress has spoken by taking their website offline.

So let’s look at what their expenses might be. Please let me know on Twitter @JackYoest http://www.twitter.com/jackyoest if my estimate for each line item is correct and if I have the services correct.

We can re-calibrate and update with the wisdom of crowds in the TwitterVerse.

(This is necessary since #PlannedParenthood and @StemExpress are not likely to comment. The Stem Express website was down, probably needing to spend more time with the family.)

Cost of Goods Sold

Planned Parenthood

Fifth month abortion 3,500

Harvest 425

Lab (misc) 275

Stem Express

Company overhead (per transaction) 1,200

Sales Representative commission (10% of sale) 2,425

Tech courier 180
Ground transportation 75
Dry Ice (Cryopreserved) 20

Igloo container 40

Charter Helicopter (three hours) 4,500

Processing fee for investigators 150

RNA Quality Check 100

Tissue Macrodissection 40

Expenses 12,930

Sale

Baby liver (tissue, issue one each) 24,250

Profit

11,320

I am using the complicated accounting formula: Sales – Expenses = Profit.

This higher, non-common-core, math gives us a real number: Eleven Large.

The Alert Reader will notice that I am combining the expenses for both #PlannedParenthood, which produces the goods for sale, and Stem Express, which is the channel of distribution (let’s not call them a middleman or rent–seeking parasite), to the end user.

The actual transportation/delivery costs might normally be done by a FedEx’er shipper. (Listed on the StemExpress website order form.) A bit cheaper than chartering a helicopter but I want to be underestimating and diplomatic to Dr. Frankenstein’s potential expenses at Planned Parenthood.

The #AlertStudent knows that in the formula these numbers are constants. But in normal business these forecasted numbers can have variation. Sales demand can go up or down and Expenses can go up or down. Profit is not guaranteed.

There is a chance that no profit could be made or that a company could lose money (I’ve done a lot of those…).

There is risk in business. Profit is the reward for managing this risk.

But would appear that there is little risk to deliver a liver. Stem Express gives Planned Parenthood a shopping list for the body parts needed and the abortionist can schedule a “donor” to fit the bill, so to say.

How much the “doctor” pressures the patient to “choose” abortion over life is not known. (Actually a pregnant women should be treated as two patients.)

Anyway, the abortionist will then modify the surgical procedure to extract the organ that was pre-ordered. There are no inventory carrying costs. There is minimal risk.

This is a nearly risk-free business and a very profitable business model.

But is it ethical or legal? Not likely. The profits seem to be far in excess above a break-even analysis. This can be determined in an independent audit.

Please tweet me your input @JackYoest and use #PPSellsBabyParts or comment.

Obama Spokesman on Selling Aborted Baby Body Parts: We Will Not Defund Planned Parenthood

Just three days after saying that Planned Parenthood’s selling the body parts of aborted babies is “ethical,” President Barack Obama’s top spokesman this afternoon cut off a reporter and refused to discuss the issue further. The Obama official also confirmed President Obama will not agree to cut off taxpayer funding of the abortion company over the shocking news.

Before Dismembering Her Unborn Baby, Abortionist Tells Woman “You’re Signing This Life Away”

(LiveActionNews) — A woman decided to have a late-term abortion because the baby had spina bifida, and would likely be in a wheelchair. Some techniques of late-term abortion require a woman to go through labor, and she wanted to avoid that, so she opted to have her child dismembered in a D&E abortion procedure. In this type of abortion, the abortionist dismembers the baby with forceps, pulling out pieces (arms, legs, etc) and the baby is usually alive and conscious as he or she is torn apart.
