ARLINGTON, VA (December 14, 2016) — Statement from Lila Rose on the U.S. Senate referring four Planned Parenthood affiliates and Planned Parenthood’s national office to the FBI and the Justice Department for alleged crimes resulting from Planned Parenthood’s baby parts trafficking scandal:
”Planned Parenthood has claimed for more than a year that it did nothing illegal in its grotesque practice of trafficking aborted baby body parts for money. Now, a second congressional investigation has uncovered more evidence that has led to four more Planned Parenthood affiliates and Planned Parenthood’s national office being referred to federal law enforcement.
“Less than two weeks ago, the House referred another Planned Parenthood affiliate to federal authorities for similar alleged crimes. This is not a set of isolated incidences or a few rogue employees; the evidence shows that these crimes were coordinated at the highest levels of Planned Parenthood.
“The evidence is overwhelming, from multiple findings of illegal profiting from the sale of body parts to violations of privacy laws so that certain vulnerable women could be targeted for their babies’ organs.
“Planned Parenthood must be prosecuted, and the over half a billion dollars in taxpayer subsidies that are propping up this absolutely corrupt and potentially criminal enterprise must be cut off immediately.
“Planned Parenthood’s disturbing baby harvesting practice is the direct result of abortion laws that dehumanize defenseless preborn children in the first place. It should surprise no one that an industry that violently kills a million innocent children in the womb every year doesn’t see the problem with tearing apart their little bodies and trafficking the parts for money.
“I’m grateful for David Daleiden and the investigative journalists at the Center for Medical Progress for exposing this scandal and for the Senate Judiciary Committee and Chairman Chuck Grassley for their extensive investigation.”
