A second shocking video has been released showing a top Planned Parenthood representative arranging for the sale of aborted babies.

The latest video, released by the Center for Medical Progress, features Mary Gatter, a senior medical director for Planned Parenthood in California, answering questions from undercover investigators about purchasing fetal organ tissue.

The investigators were posing as potential buyers for a biotech firm. Gatter is seen discussing prices she will charge for intact fetal body parts.

"Let me just figure out what others are getting, and if this is in the ballpark, then it's fine. If it's still low, then we can bump it up," she said of the $100 offer, joking, "I want a Lamborghini."

***The Center for Medical Progress' David Daleidan spoke with CBN's Charlene Aaron  about video scandal, Planned Parenthood's methods,  and what other videos CMP will release on Newswatch, July 22.

The video follows a previous clip released last week, which reportedly shows Dr. Deborah Nucatola, a Planned Parenthood executive, casually sipping wine while speaking about aborted baby parts with two actors posing as reps from a human biologics company.

Planned Parenthood says that the payments discussed in the latest video, as well as last week's, refer to payment for the costs of getting the tissue, which is legal. But Gatter later goes on to suggest modifying the abortion procedure in order to get more intact fetuses –which is against the law.

"This latest video further illustrates the barbaric reality of business at Planned Parenthood-that after selling an abortion, Planned Parenthood works to improve their bottom line by harvesting the body parts of the child they have just killed," Lila Rose, president of Live Action, said.

"What has our nation come to that we allow the brutality of abortion upon our children, and then sell their broken bodies for profit, all the while, funding the perpetrator?" she questioned.

Republican presidential hopeful Carly Fiorina blasted the Democrats' stance on abortion in a video released over social media.

"Democrats have always fought for a policy that says it is not a life until it leaves the hospital," Fiorina charged. "Hillary Clinton has fought to preserve that policy and we now have a moment in this nation to take some real action here. We can decide finally to defund Planned Parenthood."

So far, the White House has dismissed the possibility of pulling Planned Parenthoods federal funding. The organization got nearly $530 million in taxpayer funding last year.
 
Following the release of the first video on July 14, three congressional committees and top officials in several states said they would launch investigations into planned parenthoods handling of fetal tissue.
