In response to facts revealed at today’s Hearing on the Pricing of Fetal Tissue, the Center for Medical progress issued a statement detailing Planned Parenthood’s involvement in the sale of fetal body parts…
The financial documents uncovered by the Select Investigative Panel on Infant Lives prove that Planned Parenthood profited from the sale of aborted baby parts to their long-time business partner StemExpress. The facts are now undeniable that Planned Parenthood had no “costs” to “reimburse” and every dollar they received for little baby hearts, brains, and livers netted illegal profit. Planned Parenthood lied to the media, to Congress, and to the American people for 9 months falsely asserting they had no financial benefit from supplying baby parts. Now, Planned Parenthood and their partners in crime must face justice under the law for their barbaric criminal profiteering from aborted baby parts.
Since the Center for Medical Progress first presented allegations that Planned Parenthood was engaging in illegal sale of body parts for profit, Planned Parenthood and its allies in the media have done nothing but deny wrongdoing, claim the videos were “deceptively edited” (despite two forensic analyses that say otherwise) and point fingers back at the Center for Medical Progress.
Following today’s hearing, CMP also released this statement from David Daleiden:
What we learned from today’s hearing is that Planned Parenthood and their business partners like StemExpress are engaged in a rampant, illegal, and horrific enterprise that harvests, trafficks, and sells aborted babies’ hearts, lungs, and brains for profit. The undercover video admissions by senior level Planned Parenthood officials only scratch the surface of this barbaric trade—the financial documents
uncovered by the Select Investigative Panel on Infant Lives prove that Planned Parenthood profited from trafficking fetal organs and tissues.
We now know the criminal trade in body parts is spread nationwide throughout the abortion industry, with nearly 1 in 5 abortion clinics selling baby parts to StemExpress. Even the pro-Planned Parenthood witnesses called by the Panel minority agreed that a robust investigation should seek testimony and accounting documents from Planned Parenthood. We applaud the Select Investigative Panel for their excellent work on this important issue and encourage all levels of government and law enforcement to move forward quickly and decisively to ensure that those who sell aborted baby parts for profit are brought to justice under the law.
In light of the revelation of facts during today’s ongoing hearing, it will be interesting to see how Planned Parenthood and their allies in the media portray the information given today.
