AUL Calls on White House to Investigate Alleged Sales of Aborted Infant Hearts, Lungs and Livers at Planned Parenthood
“Is the nation’s number one conglomerate of abortionists acting like a gruesome eBay for the sale of infant hearts, lungs and livers? Have laws been broken?” asked AUL’s Dr. Charmaine Yoest. “The American people have questions that must be addressed.”
WASHINGTON, D.C. (07-17-15) – Americans United for Life President & CEO Dr. Charmaine Yoest launched a petition today calling on President Barack Obama to order U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch to investigate Planned Parenthood’s alleged role in selling human hearts, lungs and livers of aborted infants, following revelations in a shocking video from The Center for Medical Progress.
“Is the nation’s number one conglomerate of abortionists acting like a gruesome eBay for the sale of infant hearts, lungs and livers? Have laws been broken? The American people have questions about how their tax dollars are being spent at Planned Parenthood, a billion-plus dollar a year conglomerate receiving more than half of its budget from hard working taxpayers,” said Dr. Yoest. “Americans were shocked to see images of Planned Parenthood Federation of America’s Senior Director of Medical Services Dr. Deborah Nucatola discussing a ‘menu’ of aborted baby hearts, lungs and livers that she targets during abortions to provide to waiting buyers. But the attorney general must act along with Congress to utilize her powers to investigate Cecile Richard’s claims that Planned Parenthood’s sale of hearts, lungs and livers parts is not illegal.”
The petition reads as follows:
TITLE: We Petition the Obama Administration to: Order the Attorney General to Investigate Planned Parenthood’s Sale of Aborted Baby Parts
On July 14, 2015, shocking undercover video was released of top Planned Parenthood executives engaging in discussion related to the selling of baby livers, lungs and hearts from aborted children. In response, the Governors of Louisiana and Texas, as well as two Congressional Committees are investigating Planned Parenthood, which is an organization that receives over $500 million dollars in taxpayer funding annually.
We are calling on the Attorney General to conduct an investigation of Planned Parenthood Federation of America and its affiliates for actions to “knowingly acquire, receive or otherwise transfer any fetal tissue for valuable consideration” pursuant to 42 U.S.C. § 289g-2, “Prohibitions Regarding Human Fetal Tissue?”
