"Making it financially beneficial for the clinics."

A pro-life, medical ethics group has released the eighth video in its ongoing undercover and investigative series that purports to show the illegal sale of tissue and organs from aborted fetuses.

The latest video claims to show Cate Dyer, CEO of biotech company StemExpress, LLC, "admitting the company gets 'a lot' of intact fetuses" and "agreeing abortion clinics should profit from the sale," according to a press release from the Center for Medical Progress.

Dyer is seen in the footage, which was filmed on May 22, 2015, telling actors posing as fetal tissue buyers that liver tissue is an "area of demand" for StemExpress. Then, when an actor asked, "What would make your lab happy?" Dyer responded, "Another 50 livers a week."

The faux buyers also spoke with the StemExpress leader about "intact cases," seemingly referring to aborted fetuses.

"If you have intact cases, which we’ve done a lot, we sometimes ship those back to our lab in its entirety," Dyer said. "That would also be great if you have those."

The actors then launched into a conversation about compensation with Dyer, with one of them saying that they want any potential agreement between the two parties to be "financially beneficial" for StemExpress, to which Dyer responded, "Yeah, yeah and both of us, for sure."

"Right, and so promising to the providers — making it financially beneficial for the clinics," the actor responded.

"Yeah," Dyer seemingly said in agreement.

Later in the clip, Dyer said that Planned Parenthood has "volume" and is a "volume institution."

StemExpress cut ties with Planned Parenthood earlier this month following the release of several videos from the Center for Medical Progress that purported to show that affiliated women's clinics were selling aborted fetal tissue.

"We value our various partnerships but, due to the increased questions that have arisen over the past few weeks, we feel it prudent to terminate activities with Planned Parenthood," StemExpress said in a statement. "While we value our business relationship with Planned Parenthood, that work represents a small percentage of our overall business activity and we must focus our limited resources on resolving these inquiries."

The release of the footage comes after the Center for Medical Progress put out a trailer on Friday that highlighted some of the contents that were to come in the eighth video. It also came after a California court lifted a temporary restraining order against the pro-life group, which had barred it from releasing more footage involving tissue supplier StemExpress.
