Yesterday, the Center for Medical Progress (CMP) submitted evidence to a federal judge showing that Planned Parenthood may have lied to Congress and doctored evidence about the selling of aborted fetal body parts, which is illegal. CMP is asking the judge to force Planned Parenthood to produce its original records and invoices, as Planned Parenthood and its partner, Advanced Bioscience Resources, claimed to give the same invoices, but discrepancies were found.
“[B]oth ABR and Planned Parenthood produced what purported to be the same set of invoices, ‘but they produced different versions of the same invoice’,” CMP said in a press release. “Additionally, ‘the revenue totals and procurement totals’ for fetal body parts ‘do not match’ the totals that Planned Parenthood reported to Congressional investigations two years ago. The filing asks the Court ‘to verify that [Planned Parenthood] are not producing fabricated evidence’.”
Cecile Richards, former president of Planned Parenthood, previously testified before Congress about the baby parts scandal.

This would not be the first time @PPact apparently faked key records to cover up their crimes. This calls into question EVERYTHING @PPFA @CecileRichards ever said in defense of their barbaric baby parts trafficking programs. @FBI @TheJusticeDept https://t.co/Yi2WaeiXok

David Daleiden, project lead for CMP, said in a statement:
“The glaring discrepancies in Planned Parenthood’s alleged documentation of their baby body parts revenues call into question every statement Planned Parenthood has ever made in defense of their abortion harvesting programs. This would not be the first time Planned Parenthood has apparently doctored critical evidence about their own wrongdoing.
Planned Parenthood has everything to lose if the full scope of their illicit trade in aborted baby body parts is revealed, and when the Congressional investigations made criminal referrals of Planned Parenthood and their business partners for selling baby parts, the House Select Panel had to refer Planned Parenthood partner StemExpress for evidence destruction.
As the U.S. Department of Justice continues to follow up on the criminal referrals for Planned Parenthood and ABR, it is imperative for prosecutors to seize the original financial records from Planned Parenthood and their accomplices immediately, so these depraved enterprises cannot continue to cover up their criminal sale of baby body parts.”
