Congressional letter seeks answers from DOJ on Planned Parenthood’s alleged crimes

Congress, Planned Parenthood

On Friday, June 26, Rep. Ralph Norman (R-S.C.) led over 60 Members of Congress in sending a letter to Attorney General William Barr calling for a written update on the Department of Justice’s investigation into Planned Parenthood’s alleged criminal activity. The letter follows a video released by the Center for Medical Progress (CMP) on May 26 showing Planned Parenthood executives testifying under oath to selling the body parts of aborted children. 

According to a previous Live Action News report:

During some of the featured testimony in the video, an attorney can be heard in the background repeatedly instructing her client not to answer when asked how much money Planned Parenthood may have received from selling the body parts of aborted children. Yet invoices showed some Planned Parenthood centers receiving upwards of $10,000 in a single month, lending credence to StemExpress’ advertised promises of “financial benefit” and “fiscal reward” for abortion facilities.


The letter highlights CMP’s release of the abortion corporation’s sworn testimonials and asks Attorney General Barr to “provide a written update on the status of criminal referrals, including referrals of Planned Parenthood affiliates, made by the House Select Panel on Infant Lives.”

In 2015, CMP released a groundbreaking investigation, including multiple videos exposing senior Planned Parenthood employees discussing the dismemberment and sale of preborn children aborted at its facilities. In response, both the House of Representatives and the Senate opened investigations into Planned Parenthood and other abortion businesses’ ties to fetal tissue procurement companies. The Select Panel’s investigation resulted in 15 criminal and regulatory referrals of Planned Parenthood, other abortion businesses, and fetal tissue procurement companies.

CMP’s newest video, released Tuesday, June 30, reveals Planned Parenthood staff admitting to their participation in aborted fetal tissue procurement and sale, and even to instances of infanticide. The abortion giant has over $1 billion in assets and receives over $600 million annually in taxpayer dollars, while committing 345,672 abortions every year — nearly 950 preborn American children each day.
