Exposing Planned Parenthood’s Sale of Baby Parts

On July 14, 2015, a shocking undercover video was released showing Planned Parenthood’s top abortionist discussing the selling of baby livers, lungs and hearts from aborted children. In response, the Governors of multiple states as well as multiple Congressional Committees, have launched investigations into Planned Parenthood, an organization that receives over $527 million of taxpayer funding annually.

National Review Online: If Planned Parenthood Goes, Where Do Women Go?

Anna Paprocki | July 30, 2015

Congress is debating the idea of redirecting the taxpayer money that the scandal-ridden abortion conglomerate Planned Parenthood receives to health-care providers that serve women without tearing apart their babies’ bodies. Abortion-advocacy groups are wrong to claim that this would be an apocalypse for all family-planning and health-care services to low-income women. According to the pro-abortion Guttmacher Institute, 90 percent of the 8,409 “safety-net health centers” at which taxpayer-funded family-planning services were provided in 2010 were places other than Planned Parenthood.

National Review: Planned Parenthood Is Accused of Harvesting Organs from Aborted Babies. Is that Illegal?

Ovide Lamontagne | July 14, 2015

The ugly business of abortion became even more abhorrent this week as a 30-month undercover operation revealed that Planned Parenthood’s heavily federally subsidized, billion-dollar-plus-a-year corporation seems also to be generating revenue by harvesting and selling body parts such as hearts, livers, lungs, and muscle tissue of aborted infants. The question becomes whether that is a crime. The answer under current federal law, one might say, depends on the definition of “valuable consideration” — because profiting from the sale of human remains is illegal… [Continue Reading]
