Go to for details. A t least one Colorado university was named as a fetal tissue recip- ient in a series of undercover videos on Planned Parenthood and the alleged selling of baby parts. The latest videos also show a Denver abortionist, Dr. Savita Ginde, discussing Planned Parent- hood's methods of compensation for fetal donations. Lynn Grandon, executive director of Lighthouse Women's Center, said she wasn't surprised when she heard about the alleged sale of baby parts, because she had heard rumors of it for more than 10 years. However, she said it was still hard to see a Denver clinic and a Colorado uni- versity in the videos. "The reality is it's happening right in our backyard. We can't be complacent," Grandon said. A DENVER ABORTIONIST LifeSiteNews and others have stated that Ginde is the vice president of Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountains (PPRM). Her page on says that she is a 45-year-old specializing in family medicine at PPRM, and that she graduated from medical school at Ameri- can University of the Caribbean, a school which claims in its mission statement to foster "the highest standards in profes- sional ethics and competence." Ginde is also listed as a staŒ member at Presbyte- rian/St. Luke's Medical Center in Denver. The fourth video in the series "Human Capital" has undercover journalists from the Center for Medical Progress posing as members of a group that wants to supply fetal tissue to research groups. They are shown discussing prices and Planned Parenthood policies with Ginde. "I think a per-item thing works a little better, just because we can see how much we can get out of it," Ginde says in the video. Watch a video of a backstage interview with musician Matt Maher.
