The home team should ensure that the American flag is in good condition. It should be pointed out to players and coaches that we continue to be judged by the public in this area of respect for the flag and our country.

Someone flies a flag and they are pure evil. Someone kills babies and harvests their organs (against federal law, btw) and the people who exposed them are "dishonest".

Is anyone else growing weary?


Isa 5:20 Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!

Alveda King: Planned Parenthood worse than grave robbers

As more graphic details about Planned Parenthood’s and StemExpress’ deceptive tactics continue to be exposed, Dr. Alveda King candidly expressed her take on the major players in the abortion industry, likening them to depraved “grave robbers.”

“Their use of trickery to achieve political, financial, or legal purposes knows no limits,” King contends. “The abortion/body harvesting machine is now admitting that they also procure adult stem cells from the mothers they have sometimes butchered and even killed.”

The niece of Dr. Martin Luther King believes that it is about time that the American public becomes aware of the hidden atrocities that Planned Parenthood and StemExpress have been getting away with for years in the name of advancing medicine.

“Their underhanded schemes, corruption and political chicanery are no longer behind closed doors,” the Democrat-turned-Republican proclaimed. “The Center for Medical Progress (CMP) is keeping it out in the open.”

King said the practices being administered by Planned Parenthood and StemExpress show their true depravity, which should not be obscured with euphemisms often touted by the media.

“We could call the body snatchers grave robbers, but since their baby victims rarely get a decent burial, we have to call a spade a spade,” the 64-year-old Christian leader asserts. “These people kill and harvest people for profit.”

Exposing exploiters?

She insists that both abortion profiteers take advantage of pregnant women’s stressful predicaments for their own financial gain.

“They are taking stem cells and body parts at a time when the mother is awaiting their abortion ‘services,’" King informed. “She is likely conflicted, sedated, scared and subject to agree to anything without understanding what is really happening while she is in their clutches.”

The Atlanta native argues that both Planned Parenthood and StemExpress are making double profits off women, charging them for killing the babies whose body parts they then sell for more proceeds.

“Meanwhile, the abortion providers and scientists are after her baby's body parts, umbilical cord blood, mothers eggs and ovaries and God knows what else they might be harvesting and trading for money,” the pro-life advocate explains. “And they charge the mother upfront and make her sign papers to cover their trail. She consents and pays a fee for impending doom.”

King emphasizes that both Planned Parenthood and StemExpress repeatedly deny being in the deliberate business of profiting off of abortions, quoting their response to the allegations brought before them by part six of CMP’s expose.

"[We] never obtained blood or tissue samples from a patient without first obtaining consent," a statement from representatives of the two abortion businesses expressed. "Like all of their previous material, today's video by CMP is deceptively edited and falsely worded to suggest impropriety or illegality where none exists.”

Both went on to say that they are providing a service for humanity and forwarding medicine — mentioning nothing about killing healthy preborn children and selling their mutilated body parts for a profit, while charging mothers for conducting the lethal procedures.

“CMP's continued efforts to malign StemExpress — a life sciences company that predominantly supplies adult cells, blood and tissue to the nation's leading researchers — will only serve to slow the pace of life-saving medical research aimed at curing disease and extending quality of life for millions of Americans." The statement from Planned Parenthood and StemExpress concluded.

Politicians not doing enough

King expressed her frustration with the way those campaigning for the White House are going about trying to solve the problem with the abortion industry. She maintains that just defunding Planned Parenthood solves the abortion problem as effectively as putting a small bandage on a gaping wound.

“I wonder if Donald Trump and other presidential hopefuls have taken time to study the history of Planned Parenthood,” the civil rights leader challenged. “Mr. Trump and maybe millions of Americans seem to think that if the government only cuts or bans PPH abortion funding, that the abortion giant and their cohorts like StemExpress will be salvageable and can offer something good to society. That's like giving a lion a pedicure, ignoring its fangs and letting it loose on unsuspecting victims.”

What’s really behind Planned Parenthood?

The Baptist, who authored How Can the Dream Survive If We Murder the Children?: Abortion Is Not a Civil Right!, is a longtime opponent of Planned Parenthood and has quoted its founder, Margaret Sanger, for a notorious remark she once made.

“Colored people are like human weeds and are to be exterminated,” Sanger insisted in the midst of her abortion movement, according to King.

Leading a new charge to expose the true agenda of Planned Parenthood and its founder, King recently signed aletter demanding that the Smithsonian Institution remove its statue and other images of Sanger from its National Portrait Gallery. In the letter, Sanger’s racist and elitist past is brought to light, noting how she promoted the elimination of African Americans, who she considered “unworthy of life.”

The outspoken pro-life leader also mentioned another quote from Sanger’s book, Women and the New Race, where she calls for "weeding out the unfit, of preventing the birth of defectives or those who will become defective."

King then spurred Americans to seriously ponder the issue of abortion when considering the better of the two female presidential candidates in the running — Hillary Clinton and Carly Fiorina — stressing that their stance on the sanctity of human life should be a determining factor.

“Currently there are two women running for President of the U.S.,” the pro-family advocate reminded Americans. “Which one really cares about women?”

She pointed out that 17 candidates in the Fox News debates opposed abortion and incited other Americans to take a stand for the preborn, as well.

“Are preachers, politicians, leaders, and lay people listening?” King asked. “Is America ready to hear the truth? It's really time to PRAY for AMERICA.”

The Reverend Martin Luther King Jr. Upon Accepting

THE PLANNED PARENTHOOD FEDERATION OF AMERICA MARGARET SANGER AWARD

In 1966, Planned Parenthood Federation of America inaugurated the PPFA Margaret Sanger Award to honor the woman who founded America's family planning movement. The PPFA Margaret Sanger Award is given annually to individuals of distinction in recognition of excellence and leadership in furthering reproductive health and reproductive rights.
In its first year, the award was bestowed upon four men:

Dr. Carl G. Hartman, for "his singular contribution to human knowledge of the reproductive processes"
General William H. Draper Jr., for "his singular contribution during the past decade to the mobilization of public awareness and government action to resolve the world population crisis"
President Lyndon Baines Johnson, for "his vigorous and farsighted leadership in bringing the United States government to enunciate and implement an affirmative, effective population policy at home and abroad"
The Reverend Martin Luther King Jr., for "his courageous resistance to bigotry and his lifelong dedication to the advancement of social justice and human dignity"

Dr. King's award was presented on May 5, 1966. The citation read
"This award is presented to the Reverend Martin Luther King Jr., for his courageous resistance to bigotry and his lifelong dedication to the advancement of social justice and human dignity.

"Facing jail, abuse and physical danger, Dr. King's unceasing efforts - in behalf of all Americans - to win freedom for the Negro people parallel closely Mrs. Sanger's fight over the last half-century for the emancipation of women from the burdens of perpetual child-bearing and the emancipation of children from a future of poverty and hopelessness. Neither Mrs. Sanger nor Dr. King has hesitated to challenge unjust laws, cruel social customs and blind prejudice that hold people in ignorance and degradation. Our courts, our legislatures and - most of all - the human heart and mind have been the crucible in which they have forged a nobler history for all mankind.

"In the tradition of all great humanitarians who have seen that human life and progress are indeed indivisible, Dr. King has lent his eloquent voice to the cause of world-wide voluntary family planning.

"For Martin Luther King's unique qualities of understanding, compassion and bravery, and for his wise and unwavering leadership in securing for all people their basic human right to knowledge, dignity and opportunity that are the fount and principle of Margaret Sanger's life, this award is presented."
________________________________________

Mrs. Coretta Scott King delivered her husband's acceptance speech on his behalf.

Before reading Dr. King's speech, Mrs. King declared, "I am proud tonight to say a word in behalf of your mentor, and the person who symbolizes the ideas of this organization, Margaret Sanger. Because of her dedication, her deep convictions, and for her suffering for what she believed in, I would like to say that I am proud to be a woman tonight."

Planned Parenthood is proud to reprint Dr. King's acceptance speech.

Family Planning - A Special and Urgent Concern by the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr.

Recently, the press has been filled with reports of sightings of flying saucers. While we need not give credence to these stories, they allow our imagination to speculate on how visitors from outer space would judge us. I am afraid they would be stupefied at our conduct. They would observe that for death planning we spend billions to create engines and strategies for war. They would also observe that we spend millions to prevent death by disease and other causes. Finally they would observe that we spend paltry sums for population planning, even though its spontaneous growth is an urgent threat to life on our planet. Our visitors from outer space could be forgiven if they reported home that our planet is inhabited by a race of insane men whose future is bleak and uncertain.
There is no human circumstance more tragic than the persisting existence of a harmful condition for which a remedy is readily available. Family planning, to relate population to world resources, is possible, practical and necessary. Unlike plagues of the dark ages or contemporary diseases we do not yet understand, the modern plague of overpopulation is soluble by means we have discovered and with resources we possess.

What is lacking is not sufficient knowledge of the solution but universal consciousness of the gravity of the problem and education of the billions who are its victims.
It is easier for a Negro to understand a social paradox because he has lived so long with evils that could be eradicated but were perpetuated by indifference or ignorance. The Negro finally had to devise unique methods to deal with his problem, and perhaps the measure of success he is realizing can be an inspiration to others coping with tenacious social problems.

In our struggle for equality we were confronted with the reality that many millions of people were essentially ignorant of our conditions or refused to face unpleasant truths. The hard-core bigot was merely one of our adversaries. The millions who were blind to our plight had to be compelled to face the social evil their indifference permitted to flourish.

After centuries of relative silence and enforced acceptance, we adapted a technique of exposing the problem by direct and dramatic methods. We had confidence that when we awakened the nation to the immorality and evil of inequality, there would be an upsurge of conscience followed by remedial action.
We knew that there were solutions and that the majority of the nation were ready for them. Yet we also knew that the existence of solutions would not automatically operate to alter conditions. We had to organize, not only arguments, but people in the millions for action. Finally we had to be prepared to accept all the consequences involved in dramatizing our grievances in the unique style we had devised.

There is a striking kinship between our movement and Margaret Sanger's early efforts. She, like we, saw the horrifying conditions of ghetto life. Like we, she knew that all of society is poisoned by cancerous slums. Like we, she was a direct actionist - a nonviolent resister. She was willing to accept scorn and abuse until the truth she saw was revealed to the millions. At the turn of the century she went into the slums and set up a birth control clinic, and for this deed she went to jail because she was violating an unjust law. Yet the years have justified her actions. She launched a movement which is obeying a higher law to preserve human life under humane conditions. Margaret Sanger had to commit what was then called a crime in order to enrich humanity, and today we honor her courage and vision; for without them there would have been no beginning. Our sure beginning in the struggle for equality by nonviolent direct action may not have been so resolute without the tradition established by Margaret Sanger and people like her. Negroes have no mere academic nor ordinary interest in family planning. They have a special and urgent concern.

Recently the subject of Negro family life has received extensive attention. Unfortunately, studies have overemphasized the problem of the Negro male ego and almost entirely ignored the most serious element - Negro migration. During the past half century Negroes have migrated on a massive scale, transplanting millions from rural communities to crammed urban ghettoes. In their migration, as with all migrants, they carried with them the folkways of the countryside into an inhospitable city slum. The size of family that may have been appropriate and tolerable on a manually cultivated farm was carried over to the jammed streets of the ghetto. In all respects Negroes were atomized, neglected and discriminated against. Yet, the worst omission was the absence of institutions to acclimate them to their new environment. Margaret Sanger, who offered an important institutional remedy, was unfortunately ignored by social and political leaders in this period. In consequence, Negro folkways in family size persisted. The problem was compounded when unrestrained exploitation and discrimination accented the bewilderment of the newcomer, and high rates of illegitimacy and fragile family relationships resulted.

For the Negro, therefore, intelligent guides of family planning are a profoundly important ingredient in his quest for security and a decent life. There are mountainous obstacles still separating Negroes from a normal existence. Yet one element in stabilizing his life would be an understanding of and easy access to the means to develop a family related in size to his community environment and to the income potential he can command.
This is not to suggest that the Negro will solve all his problems through Planned Parenthood. His problems are far more complex, encompassing economic security, education, freedom from discrimination, decent housing and access to culture. Yet if family planning is sensible it can facilitate or at least not be an obstacle to the solution of the many profound problems that plague him.

The Negro constitutes half the poor of the nation. Like all poor, Negro and white, they have many unwanted children. This is a cruel evil they urgently need to control. There is scarcely anything more tragic in human life than a child who is not wanted. That which should be a blessing becomes a curse for parent and child. There is nothing inherent in the Negro mentality which creates this condition. Their poverty causes it. When Negroes have been able to ascend economically, statistics reveal they plan their families with even greater care than whites. Negroes of higher economic and educational status actually have fewer children than white families in the same circumstances.

Some commentators point out that with present birth rates it will not be long before Negroes are a majority in many of the major cities of the nation. As a consequence, they can be expected to take political control, and many people are apprehensive at this prospect. Negroes do not seek political control by this means. They seek only what they are entitled to and do not wish for domination purchased at the cost of human misery. Negroes were once bred by slave owners to be sold as merchandise. They do not welcome any solution which involves population breeding as a weapon. They are instinctively sympathetic to all who offer methods that will improve their lives and offer them fair opportunity to develop and advance as all other people in our society.

For these reasons we are natural allies of those who seek to inject any form of planning in our society that enriches life and guarantees the right to exist in freedom and dignity.
For these constructive movements we are prepared to give our energies and consistent support; because in the need for family planning, Negro and white have a common bond; and together we can and should unite our strength for the wise preservation, not of races in general, but of the one race we all constitute - the human race.
________________________________________

Margaret Sanger was too ill to attend the award ceremony in May 1966. She died the following September. Mrs. Sanger would have been deeply honored and pleased to have heard such beautiful tributes from kindred heroes in the struggle for equality and civil rights, Dr. and Mrs. Martin Luther King Jr.

About two weeks after the award ceremony, Dr. King wrote the following letter to Cass Canfield, chairman of the Executive Committee of the PPFA - World Population Emergency Campaign:

Dear Mr. Canfield:

Words are inadequate for me to say how honored I was to be the recipient of the Margaret Sanger Award. This award will remain among my most cherished possessions. While I cannot claim to be worthy of such a signal honor, I can assure you that I accept it with deep humility and sincere gratitude. Such a wonderful expression of support is of inestimable value for the continuance of my humble efforts.

Again let me say how much I regret that at the last minute urgent developments in the civil rights movement made it impossible for me to be in Washington to personally receive the award. My wife brought glowing echoes of the wonderful reception and impressiveness of the total occasion.

I am happy to be the recipient of the Margaret Sanger Award and I can assure you that this distinct honor will cause me to work even harder for a reign of justice and a rule of love all over our nation.

Sincerely yours,
Martin Luther King Jr.

Utah Governor Orders State Agencies to Stop Disbursing Federal Funds to Planned Parenthood

 Gov. Gary Herbert has ordered all state agencies to stop funneling federal funds to the Planned Parenthood Association of Utah.
 
The federal government provides grants to Planned Parenthood that are distributed through the Utah Department of Health. Utah law already bars any organization from using state funds for abortions, and that prohibition extends to Planned Parenthood’s federal grants, Herbert said in a statement Friday afternoon.
 
Herbert’s order came in response to the release of secretly recorded videos by an anti-abortion group showing Planned Parenthood officials describing how they provide fetal tissue from abortions for medical research.
 
“The allegations against Planned Parenthood are deeply troubling,” Herbert said.
 
The governor noted that other government agencies and nonprofits will still provide education and prevention programs for sexually transmitted diseases.
 
Karrie Galloway, Planned Parenthood Association of Utah executive director, slammed the decision Friday evening.
 
“To be perfectly honest, I’m appalled that the governor is making policy decisions according to news reports of allegations — without looking at Planned Parenthood’s 50-year history in the state of Utah,” she said, “and the fact that we have never erroneously used any state or federal money outside the rules.”
 
Galloway added that she understands and appreciates that no state money can be used for abortions.
 
“The money he is talking about is for education,” she said. “It’s federal money that we applied for through a [request for proposal] with the state health department to do evidence-based programs to reduce teen pregnancy. We celebrated those numbers going down about six months ago. Eliminating Planned Parenthood from participating in that is not the right move.”
 
According to numbers released by the governor’s office, Planned Parenthood’s budget for fiscal 2015 includes about $100,000 for STD testing and reporting, $115,000 for “abstinence education and personal responsibility education” and $1,339 for providing pregnancy tests and STD screenings to victims of **** and sexual assault.
 
Galloway further called Herbert’s decision “purely political.”
 
“It doesn’t make any sense other than the fact that he’s a GOP governor,” she said, “and the GOP wants to defund Planned Parenthood.”
 
Republicans around the country have targeted Planned Parenthood after several videos were released by the anti-abortion Center for Medical Progress.
 
The center said the videos showed Planned Parenthood illegally sells fetal tissue for profit. Planned Parenthood said the organization receives legal payment only for the cost of the procedure and requires a mother’s consent before the tissue is given to researchers.
 
Rep. Angela Romero, D-Salt Lake City, also found the governor’s decision “unfortunate.”
 
“We’re reacting to political propaganda,” Romero said.
 
She added that abortions are only a small part of what the organization provides, including contraceptive services, family planning, and screenings for STDs and cancer.
 
When Romero was young, she said, Planned Parenthood was her only resource for health care, since she didn’t have insurance.
 
“It’s a great resource for our community,” she said.

Court Removes Injunction on Planned Parenthood Video, New Video Immediately Released

Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Joanne O'Donnell ruled on Friday afternoon the Center for Medical Progress has First Amendment rights to release videos it covertly took of StemExpress executives talking about buying aborted baby tissue from Planed Parenthood. Almost immediately afterwards, CMP released a new video that among other thing showed the StemExpress CEO Joking about receiving entire dead babies from Planned Parenthood (over lunch).

This latest video is only two minutes long and is more of a trailer of things to come. Most of its content was made up of bits and pieces of previous videos. The one new section featured Cate Dyer, the CEO of StemExpress in a lunch meeting with undercover operatives posing as representatives of a biotech firm. Dyer is seen laughing about how StemExpress purchases fully intact aborted babies from Planned Parenthood. As she paid the check, Dyer is laughing about how shippers of the aborted babies should give a warning to lab workers to expect such a whole (intact) baby.

    “Oh yeah, if you have intact cases — which we’ve done a lot — we sometimes ship those back to our lab in its entirety,” she says.

    “Tell the lab its coming,” she laughs about the intact unborn babies. “They don’t want to open the box and go ‘Oh my God!'” Dyer adds.

Once the CMP videos began to be released, StemExpress realized a lunch they had back in May was probably an undercover sting, so they sued to preemptively block those videos from being seen.  Judge O'Donnell issued a restraining order barring CMP from releasing any videos showing current or former Stem Express employees, at the end of July - then rescinded the order today.

The Center for Medical Progress isn't off the hook yet because the Judge say that even though they couldn't' be prevented from releasing the video, it was likely that StemExpress prevail in its lawsuit claiming its privacy was violated.

Earlier this week StemExpess announced it was cutting all ties with Planned Parenthood, but denied that it had done anything wrong.

The newly-released video is below, but expect more to come next week.

Saturday August 22nd will be a nation-wide protest against the abortion holocaust of the Planned Parenthood killing machine

Recently released hidden-camera videos by the Irvine-based Center for Medical Progress, an anti-abortion organization, spurred controversy over the use of tissue from aborted fetuses for medical research. The videos, which recorded Planned Parenthood physicians discussing procedures for extracting fetal organ tissue, triggered national outrage by abortion opponents and led to political debate over whether federal funding for the reproductive health nonprofit should be cut.

protest-planned-parenthood-selling-baby-parts

“Obviously, when the videos came out, I was completely shocked,” said Claire Miller, 19, of Torrance, who organized Saturday’s protest at the Planned Parenthood office in Lawndale. “They’re performing illegal partial-birth abortions and they’ve been profiting off the body parts of these dead children.”

The mere fact that this traitor supports them is all the reason you need to be against Planned Parenthood


In the past three weeks, Miller said she has reached out to local churches, various anti-abortion advocacy groups, and family and friends to join in the Lawndale protest. “I must have reached out to 2,000 people,” said Miller, a former member of the Riverside-based Survivors of the Abortion Holocaust.

The exact date and time are Saturday, August 22, 2015, from 9:00 AM to 11:00 AM. For more information, email here or call 773-777-2900.

Video StemExpress Sought to Block Released: We Work with ‘Almost Triple Digit’ Volume Abortion Facilities

 The Center for Medical Progress has now released at least one of the videos that the Planned Parenthood business partner StemExpress sought to block in court after a California appeals court denied the fetal tissue company a preliminary injunction against the release of the undercover footage with its CEO.

The video, released on Tuesday, features CEO Cate Dyer, who discussing a potential business partnership with what she believes is a human biologics company. She speaks with them over dinner about her current arrangements with abortion facilities, noting that StemExpress works with high volume suppliers.

“As you see Megan out there in clinics, we’re working with almost triple digit number clinics, so it’s a lot on volume and we still need more than what we do,” she says. “So, it’s a lot. So, I don’t think you’re going to hit a capacity with us anytime in the next ten years.”

Dyer notes that she would like to obtain “another 50 livers a week” when asked what would make her happy.

She also discusses how some researchers express shock and unease when they open a package and find recognizable baby body parts inside.

“As you probably know, one of the issues with neural tissue, it’s so fragile. It’s insanely fragile,” she says. “I know we get requests for neural, it’s the hardest thing in the world to ship.”

“You do it as the whole calvarium (head),” the undercover investigator filming the encounter states.

“Yeah, that’s the easiest way. And we’ve actually had good success with that,” Dyer replies.

“Make sure the eyes are closed!” the investigator quips.

“Yeah!” Dyer responds, laughing. “Tell the lab it’s coming, so they don’t open the box and go, ‘Oh G*d!’”

When the undercover investigator asks why come lab techs respond in such manner, Dyer explains that they would rather not realize the reality of the situation in seeing the body parts as a whole.

“It’s almost like they don’t want to know where it comes from,” she outlines. “Where they’re like, ‘We need limbs, but no hands and feet need to be attached.’ … Or they want long bones, and they want you to take it all off, like, make it so that we don’t know what it is.”

“And this just goes to their whole stigma,” the investigators state.

“Oh yeah,” Dyer agrees. “And their lab techs freak out and have meltdowns so its just kind of like, yeah.”

The StemExpress CEO then explains that she believes it is the reason why some researches prefer to deal with adult pathology “because they sort of want to get away from having to publish a picture—a paper—that says they derived this from fetal tissue.”

When the undercover investigators mention that they would like to seek to make the arrangement financially profitable for all sides of the agreement, Dyer asks if they have seen abortion facilities that don’t profit from the arrangement and notes that she has not seen any such situations.

“You feel like there are clinics out there that have been burned, that feel like they’re doing all this work for research and it hasn’t been profitable for them?” she asks. “I haven’t seen that…”

Dyer has now also released a statement regarding the footage, asserting that reports that the babies are delivered to the company as a whole are inaccurate, but rather it is the fetal organs that may arrive in one piece.

“My use of the term ‘intact cases’ is a medical term of art that refers solely to ‘intact livers,’ as there was absolutely no mention of ‘intact fetuses’ at any point,” she said in a company release. “Consistent with the company’s prior public statements, StemExpress has never requested, received or provided to a researcher an ‘intact fetus.’”

“The suction destroys everything and it gets to the point where I mean you could look at 60 cases and get nothing,” Dyer added. “It’s just red water by the time it gets to us.”

She did not deny or contest any other parts of the footage.

While some have contended that the videos are misleading because they are edited, the Center for Medical Progress has released a number of the hours-long undercover videos in their entirety on YouTube.

Congress' Planned Parenthood Investigation Has Turned Up 'No Evidence,' House Dems Say
Two different House committees are going after the family planning provider.


The same day the GOP-controlled House Judiciary Committee held a hearing to "expose" Planned Parenthood's "horrific abortion practices," members of another House committee announced that their federal investigation into the family planning provider has so far turned up no evidence of wrongdoing.

The Judiciary Committee brought three longtime anti-abortion activists to testify at the hearing on Wednesday, including two women who claim they "survived" botched abortions that their mothers had attempted. The Democrats were allowed one witness, a Yale University professor who supports abortion rights. Planned Parenthood was not invited to testify at the hearing.

Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.) said the hearing was justified because Planned Parenthood "is granted huge amounts of federal funds, making it our business as members of Congress" to investigate its practices.

Anti-abortion activists released a series of heavily edited undercover videos last month that accuse Planned Parenthood of selling fetal tissue after abortions. But multiple state investigations and the federal investigation being conducted by the House Energy and Commerce Committee have so far been unable to find any facts to support that claim.

Just before the Judiciary Committee hearing on Wednesday, the ranking Democrats on the Energy and Commerce Committee announced that their investigation has found "no evidence" to support the claims that Planned Parenthood is engaged in any illegal activities.

 "Over the last month, we have carefully reviewed the facts at hand and the materials provided to us as a result of the majority's inquiry," said Energy and Commerce Committee Ranking Member Frank Pallone Jr. (D-N.J.) and Oversight and Investigations Subcommittee Ranking Member Diana DeGette (D-Co.) in a statement.

"Despite the incendiary rhetoric, we have looked strictly at the facts. We are continuing to do our due diligence, but we have found these claims to be unsubstantiated," the statement read.

Republicans on the Energy and Commerce Committee have not yet released their findings from the investigation.

The Judiciary Committee, meanwhile, did not appear to be concerned with the facts of the Planned Parenthood investigation. Lawmakers instead used the hearing as an opportunity to decry abortion in general. An emotional Rep. Trent Franks (R-Ariz.) called abortion "the worst human rights atrocity in the history of the United States of America."
"What is so liberating about brutally and painfully dismembering living, helpless human babies?" Franks said.
 
Franks is one of 28 House Republicans, all men, who are threatening to shut down the federal government in November if the budget bill includes any funding for Planned Parenthood. The family planning provider receives about $500 million in government funding each year, which it uses to subsidize services like birth control, cancer screenings and sexually transmitted disease treatments for low-income patients.
 
Federal law already prohibits taxpayer dollars from being used to pay for abortions.
Democrats on the Judiciary Committee defended the family planning provider at the hearing, noting that millions of people rely on Planned Parenthood for basic health care and family planning services.
 
"Planned Parenthood serves 2.7 million Americans a year, and 1 in 3 women will have used Planned  Parenthood services by the age of 45," Ranking Member John Conyers (D-Mich.) told colleagues. “Some abortion opponents are attempting to use these videos as a pretext to end federal funding for  Planned Parenthood. If successful, this effort would hurt those who rely on Planned Parenthood’s services, and doing so would not prevent abortions."

Planned Parenthood Exec. Admits Fear of the Media

The Center for Medical Progress has released its 10th undercover video exposing Planned Parenthood's practice of selling the body parts of aborted babies.

The video, released Tuesday, comes amid growing GOP debate to defund the abortion provider.

It's part of a series called, "Human Capital," and highlights expert interviews, eyewitness accounts, and real-life undercover interactions involving Planned Parenthood executives.

The new video also shows National Director of the Consortium of Abortion Providers at Planned Parenthood Deborah VanDerhie describing the harvesting of fetal body parts as "donation for renumeration."

"We're trying to figure this out as an industry, about how we're going to manage renumeration...because the headlines would be a disaster," VanDerhie said.

"If you do decide that you want to engage in renumeration that you really need to, like, think that through...and think New York Times headline when you're creating your policy," she said.

Meanwhile, Americans United For Life President and CEO Dr. Charmaine Yoest is set to testify before Congress Thursday about stopping taxpayer support for the nations' No. 1 abortion provider.

"History teaches us that those who commit genocide first dehumanize their victims," Yoest said.

"Watching today's video showing so many doctors casually discussing the sale of hearts, brains, lungs, and limbs of infants who died in abortion, we've all now seen that kind of barbarity with our own eyes," she said. "A civil society should not sell its unborn children for spare parts and experimentation."

Make Obama choose: Fund gov't or Planned Parenthood

A pro-family organization is calling for lawmakers in the U.S. House of Representatives to use a bolder strategy in their effort to defund Planned Parenthood.

"What we are looking for is to take these kinds of ideas and attach them to a continuing resolution in must-pass legislation," says Ed Vitagliano, speaking on behalf of the American Family Association.

The U.S. House has passed and sent to the Senate bills to defund Planned Parenthood for one year, and to provide criminal penalties for abortion clinic workers who don't try to save the lives of babies born alive during abortions.

capture from CMP video #8Why attach the legislation to a continuing resolution?

"Because the facts on the ground are that these bills are not going to see the light of day," Vitagliano explains. "The Senate will not pass this and the President would certainly veto it."

The continuing resolution would have to pass to fund the federal government, meaning President Obama's veto – in defense of Planned Parenthood – would trigger a shutdown of the federal government.

Planned Parenthood receives approximately a half-billion dollars a year from the federal government, hence U.S. taxpayers.

The pro-life bills surfaced in response to undercover videos, now 10 of them, that have put Planned Parenthood and its defenders on the defensive over the harvesting of baby body parts for medical research.

CMP video #6 screen grabFederal law prohibits the sale of aborted fetal tissue for profit, and the videos allege Planned Parenthood officials are knowingly breaking the law, even allowing babies to be born alive so their organs are fresher for delivery.

The videos also show shocking footage of baby parts being sorted, and Planned Parenthood officials callously discussing fetal organs and limbs.

Charmaine Yoest, who heads Americans United for Life, tells OneNewsNow the videos suggest violations of at least six laws, including the Born Alive Protection Act.

"Multiple people throughout the videos refer to the delivery of an intact specimen," Yoest points out. "For most of us that's a baby, begging the question was that child born alive. In multiple instances, throughout the videos, that appears to be true."
Vitagliano

In one video, a whistleblower describes how she helped a co-worker slice through the face of an aborted baby to harvest the brain, with the heart still beating.

Planned Parenthood, meanwhile, claims the videos from the Center for Medical Progress are "heavily edited" and hence somehow untrue, a claim that Democrats are trumpeting - without watching the videos themselves.

 "We want to force the President's hand," Vitagliano says of AFA's proposal. "And in fact we want to make sure that everyone in Congress is on record, because this horrific practice by Planned Parenthood needs to be exposed."

Planned Parenthood performs about 40 percent of the abortions in the United States annually.

The House votes to defund Planned Parenthood

On Friday, the House of Representatives passed two pro-life bills, including a measure that would defund Planned Parenthood for one year unless it stopped performing abortions.

 The House passed Rep. Diane Black's Defund Planned Parenthood Act of 2015 on a 241-187 vote. Two Democrats voted in favor of the measure; three Republicans voted against it.

The House also voted in favor of Rep. Trent Franks' Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection bill, 248-177.

"Planned Parenthood takes half-a-billion dollars each year from struggling taxpayers to use in its abortion franchises nationwide, which do not provide full-service medical care for women," said Dr. Charmaine Yoest, the president and CEO of Americans United for Life. "Real healthcare respects life."

""We thank the bipartisan majority in the House of Representatives for removing taxpayer funding to this scandal-ridden organization and redirecting those funds to the thousands of full-spectrum health clinics," Tony Perkins, president of the Family Research Council, agreed. "The next step is to add this measure to the short-term budget resolution that forces the Senate to vote again on redirecting tax dollars away from Planned Parenthood."

Recent undercover videos featuring shocking footage of Planned Parenthood employees discussing the dismemberment and harvest of fetal organs for money helped spur many Congressmen to support the legislation, which would impose a moratorium on funding the abortion provider.

"In light of the troubling Center for Medical Progress videos, the U.S. House made the right call in suspending that level of investment so that women and girls' healthcare needs will be met in a safe environment," Yoest said.

The second bill imposes tougher standards for abortionists that make no effort to save the lives of babies born alive during botched abortions.

"One of the most disturbing discussions in the undercover videos are cold, calculating conversations on the part of top Planned Parenthood officials who discuss the kind of money they can make from babies who die during an abortion, but because their bodies remained intact, their parts are worth more money," she continued. "A humane society makes it clear in our laws and in our culture that a child born alive deserves protection. I commend the members of the House for standing up for the most vulnerable among us."

Dr. Yoest testified on Thursday before the House Energy and Commerce Committee's Subcommittee on Health, about troubling legal issues raised in the undercover videos revealing Planned Parenthood's trafficking in infant body parts.

Pelosi: Planned Parenthood Videos Aren't Real
She's living in a river in Egypt.


 Shocked she really likes to kill those babies

 Sunday on CNN’s State of the Union, House Minority Leader Rep. Nancy Pelosi told interviewer Jake Tapper that the controversial undercover videos by the activists at Center for Medical Progress showing Planned Parenthood doctors negotiating prices for fetal tissue are not real:

    "I don’t stipulate that these videos are real. And the fact is — and fact is that the research that is being criticized there is research that has been supported. No, I haven’t seen — I’ve seen some news reports of it, but I also know that it’s not real and you can create any reality that you want.”

So she hasn't seen the videos but they can't be real, because that's not a reality Pelosi is willing to accept, much less defend. It's called being in denial. She continued,

    “And I think they should be investigated as to how they obtained those and doctored those and had them be accepted as something that was an indictment against Planned Parenthood because that’s not true.”

As Pelosi went on she grew increasingly incomprehensible:

    “I do think that Planned Parenthood is many people that consist of many state organizations and some of them not as, how shall I say, aware of the assault that was going to be made on them and they spoke in a way that could be misinterpreted.”

The series of damning short videos has repeatedly been attacked as "heavily edited" and "doctored," even though the full-length versions are online for anyone to view. No one yet has been able to point to any evidence of misleading editing or doctoring.

Planned Parenthood boss clashes with lawmakers over taxpayer $$, videos

video: http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2015/09/29/forensic-analysis-planned-parenthood-videos-show-no-evidence-manipulation/

The head of Planned Parenthood clashed with congressional Republicans on Capitol Hill Tuesday over the group's taxpayer funding, while using her appearance to attack the group behind a series of disturbing videos showing her organization's workers discussing fetal tissue harvesting.

Cecile Richards, speaking before the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, claimed the videos were "deceptively edited" and "heavily doctored."

Yet just minutes before the hearing started, a forensic analysis said the videos "are authentic and show no evidence of manipulation or editing." The analysis was conducted for the anti-abortion group Center for Medical Progress.


woops
Committee Chairman Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah, also seemed to brush off the claims of doctoring as he excoriated Planned Parenthood for its allegedly "insatiable" desire for taxpayer dollars. He pointedly cited the millions the group has spent on travel and parties and "fairly exorbitant salaries" even while cutting back, he said, on certain health care services.

"Their desire for more of taxpayer dollars is just insatiable," Chaffetz said.

Chaffetz argued that Planned Parenthood "doesn't need a federal subsidy." Chaffetz, in emotional opening remarks, recalled his late mother's fight with breast cancer, and said much of Planned Parenthood's budget is not going "to women's health care."

Under questioning from Chaffetz, Richards acknowledged her annual compensation is $520,000. (Rep. Carolyn Maloney, D-N.Y., later criticized Chaffetz for the line of questioning, accusing him of "beating up on a woman ... for making a good salary.")

Richards, meanwhile, adamantly defended Planned Parenthood, saying she's "proud to be here" and stressing that their clinics largely provide birth control, cancer screenings and other health care services.

The videos showing conversations on fetal tissue harvesting, she said, were part of a "smear campaign" to "entrap" doctors into breaking the law.

"Once again, our opponents failed," she said.

She said less than 1 percent of their clinics facilitate donations for fetal tissue research, and they do so legally.

Richards won some support from Democrats on the committee. Top Democrat, Maryland Rep. Elijah Cummings, blasted CMP for having "misled and essentially conned Planned Parenthood employees."

But Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, called the scenes in the videos "barbaric and repulsive."

A question looming over the hearing was whether any of the footage was in fact altered. Democrats repeatedly suggested that important passages were missing.

But the Alliance Defending Freedom engaged cybersecurity and forensic analysis company Coalfire Systems to examine the 10 "full-footage videos" put out by CMP.

According to their review, the videos were not manipulated. The report said any missing footage was of "non-pertinent" events like meals and bathroom breaks.

"The Coalfire forensic analysis removes any doubt that the full length undercover videos released by Center for Medical Progress are authentic and have not been manipulated," ADF Senior Counsel Casey Mattox said in a statement.

"Analysts scrutinized every second of video recorded during the investigation and released by CMP to date and found only bathroom breaks and other non-pertinent footage had been removed. Planned Parenthood can no longer hide behind a smokescreen of false accusations and should now answer for what appear to be the very real crimes revealed by the CMP investigation."

The 10 videos released so far capture Planned Parenthood officials casually describing how they sometimes obtain tissue from aborted fetuses for researchers. In one video, a doctor for a Planned Parenthood tissue harvesting partner appears to admit a baby's "heart actually is still beating" at times following abortions and an ex-procurement tech gives a first-person account of watching a baby's heart beat before she dissects its brain.

Planned Parenthood foes say the videos show the group breaks federal laws barring for-profit fetal tissue sales and altering abortion procedures to obtain usable organs. Planned Parenthood and its defenders say it's done nothing illegal and says that CMP Project Lead David Daleiden dishonestly edited the videos to distort what was said.

In written testimony, Richards fired back at Daleiden, calling for him to be investigated after she says he "tried unsuccessfully to entrap Planned Parenthood physicians and staff for nearly three years." Daleiden obtained the videos after posing as an executive of a nonexistent firm that buys fetal tissue for scientists.

So far, the most damage inflicted on Planned Parenthood by the videos is the insensitive way some of its officials discuss the procedures. That has drawn apologies from Planned Parenthood and bitter criticism from Republicans.

Most Democrats have rallied behind the group, and President Obama has threatened to veto GOP legislation cutting its federal money. Public opinion polls show majorities oppose blocking Planned Parenthood's taxpayer dollars. Departing House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., fearing voter anger, have rebuffed conservatives who would shut down the government if Obama doesn't agree to halt Planned Parenthood's money.

The organization receives about a third of its $1.3 billion annual budget, around $450 million, from federal coffers, chiefly reimbursements for treating Medicaid's low-income patients.

Democrats have used a Senate filibuster to block GOP legislation halting Planned Parenthood's federal payments. So two House committees plan to approve filibuster-proof legislation shifting Planned Parenthood's Medicaid funds -- about $350 million -- to community health centers.

The bill would also keep a promise made during this spring's budget debate to repeal key elements of Obama's signature health care law. Panel votes are expected Tuesday and Wednesday.

In addition to the four congressional committee investigations of Planned Parenthood, Boehner has said he will also appoint a special committee to probe the group.

You know? It's all out in the open like this, but en yet they're not even getting a slap on the wrist.

Pt being that this is modern-day society for you now - in the near future, they'll likely make it legal to allow fornication on the open streets.

BREAKING: Planned Parenthood says it will stop taking money for aborted baby parts

Pressured by a series of undercover videos showing their highest officials in compromising situations, Planned Parenthood announced today that it will no longer accept money in exchange for transferring the body parts of aborted babies to medical researchers.

"In order to completely debunk the disingenuous argument that our opponents have been using — and to reveal the true political purpose of these attacks — our Federation has decided, going forward, that any Planned Parenthood health center that is involved in donating tissue after an abortion for medical research will follow the model already in place at one of our two affiliates currently facilitating donations for fetal tissue research," Planned Parenthood Federation of America President Cecile Richards wrote in a letter to the National Institutes of Health (NIH).

Planned Parenthood facilities in Washington state donate the organs and tissue of aborted babies to researchers without receiving reimbursement, PPFA says. From now on, any Planned Parenthood abortion facility that continues its "fetal tissue donation" program will follow its guidelines.

Richards wrote that pro-life advocates had targeted Planned Parenthood - "the nation’s leading women’s health care provider" - with "patently false claims" in order "to advance their extreme political agenda" of ending federal funding to the organization and "to deny women access to basic health care."

The abortion provider stands accused of altering its abortion technique to maximize the number of organs harvested, illegally performing the partial birth abortion procedure, and profiting from the trafficking in human body parts. The latter two charges are federal felonies carrying steep fines and several years in prison.

"Our role in fetal tissue research is an extremely small part of what we do," Richards wrote. "In fact, just 1% of our health centers currently facilitate tissue donation for fetal tissue research."

Richards insists that Planned Parenthood did nothing wrong, and its policy change is not "a suggestion that anyone else should not take reimbursement" for aborted babies' organs.

While Planned Parenthood officials have refused to say how much money the fetal tissue program generates, PPFA executive vice president Dawn Laguens told the Associated Press, "I don't think [the new policy] will have a huge impact on their budget."

Reimbursements for harvested fetal organs does not match the $528 million Planned Parenthood received in federal, state, and local taxpayer funds from July 2013 through June 2014. Taxpayer subsidies account for more than 40 percent of its overall revenue.

Pro-life advocates say they want more details about the new policy - and justice for any previous crimes.

The man behind the undercover video series, Center for Medical Progress lead investigator David Daleiden, dismissed the letter as a "stunt."

"Without releasing the text of the alleged new 'policy' and the exact model from the their Washington affiliate," Daleiden told LifeSiteNews, Planned Parenthood's action "tells us nothing. This only raises more serious questions about what Planned Parenthood leadership has been allowing its clinics to do with money and baby parts, and intensifies the need for Congress to pursue full auditing and oversight of Planned Parenthood’s unaccountable criminal enterprise of baby parts trafficking."

Operation Rescue President Troy Newman, who is also a CMP board member, told LifeSiteNews, "Planned Parenthood has been caught with their bloody hands in the cash register. They are now trying to back track their criminal conduct while making counter accusations at the investigators. This will not work."

"It is now abundantly clear that Planned Parenthood has been violating federal law that prohibits the profiting from fetal cadavers," Newman told LifeSiteNews. "Now more than ever, we must press for full scale prosecutions, and jail for all the abortionists involved."

In the wake of today's letter, at least one member of Congress promised those investigations will continue.

"There are still many questions yet to be answered surrounding Planned Parenthood's business practices and relationships with the procurement organizations," said Rep. Marsha Blackburn, R-TN, who sits on the House Energy and Commerce Committee, which is investigating Planned Parenthood. "This is exactly why the House is investigating abortion practices and how we can better protect life.”

"It is clear that Planned Parenthood knows it is wrong to profit from the sale of baby body parts, but their decision to stop selling organs doesn't change the fact that Planned Parenthood still profits from the death of children," said Senator James Lankford. "This organization still engages in the inhumane treatment of children, and our federal government forces taxpayers to give them their hard-earned money. Congress must continue all investigations into their grotesque practices and remain committed to defunding them."

Colorado shooting suspect said 'no more baby parts': reports
11/28/15

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (Reuters) - The man accused of opening fire at a Planned Parenthood clinic in Colorado and killing three people said "no more baby parts" while he was being arrested, NBC News and other media reported on Saturday, citing unidentified law enforcement sources.

The utterance from suspect Robert Lewis Dear, 57, would appear to reference the controversy surrounding the organization's health services, which include abortion, and its role in delivering fetal tissue to medical researchers.

It could hint at a possible motive for the rampage on Friday, though NBC reported that its sources said investigators still did not know what had motivated the gunman.

Authorities have not discussed a motive for the attack at the Colorado Springs clinic, which left a police officer and two civilians dead and nine people wounded. Federal law enforcement authorities referred questions to local police. Colorado Springs police could not be reached for comment.

"This unconscionable attack was not only a crime against the Colorado Springs community, but a crime against women receiving healthcare services at Planned Parenthood, law enforcement seeking to protect and serve, and other innocent people," Attorney General Loretta Lynch said in a statement.

The wounded included five police officers and four civilians, who were listed in good condition at area hospitals.

Garrett Swasey, 44, who was killed in the attack, was a campus police officer for the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs who joined city police in responding to reports of shots fired at the clinic. The father of two served as an elder at Hope Chapel, the church said on its website.

Dear was taken into custody at the Planned Parenthood clinic after an hours-long standoff with police and jailed ahead of a court appearance scheduled for Monday.

It was not clear if Dear, a South Carolina native who appeared to have moved to Colorado last year, had retained an attorney.

Vicki Cowart, chief executive of Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountains, said in a statement that the media reports showed that witnesses confirmed that Dear was motivated by opposition to abortion.

"This is an appalling act of violence targeting access to health care and terrorizing skilled and dedicated health care professionals," she said.

The shooting was believed to be the first fatal attack at an abortion provider in the United States in six years. The Colorado Springs center has been repeatedly targeted for protests by anti-abortion activists.

Planned Parenthood came under heavy criticism this year after officials of the organization were secretly recorded by an anti-abortion group discussing how to obtain human tissue from aborted fetuses.

The videos have triggered protests over the national non-profit organization's role in such activities and have become an issue in the 2016 presidential election race as conservatives in Congress seek to cut off Planned Parenthood's federal funding. Planned Parenthood has strongly denied doing anything illegal or unethical.

In recent years, Planned Parenthood moved its Colorado Springs clinic to a facility on the city's northwest side that opponents of abortion have called a "fortress."

The Planned Parenthood Federation of America is based in New York and Washington.

At least eight workers at clinics providing abortions have been killed since 1977, according to the National Abortion Federation. The most recent was in 2009 when doctor George Tiller was shot to death at church in Wichita, Kansas.

It said that clinics operated by various groups reported nearly 7,000 incidents of trespassing, vandalism, arson, death threats, and other forms of violence since 1977.

NEWCOMER TO COLORADO

Except for his name and age, police have only said that Dear recently resided in rural Hartsel, Colorado, about 60 miles (96 km) west of Colorado Springs. Official records showed that he has a history of brushes with the law.

Dear lived in a trailer parked 50 yards (meters) off the highway, sharing it with a woman who may have been his wife though she rarely left the property, according to Zigmond Post Jr., who lives about a quarter of a mile (400 meters) away.

Post told Reuters that he first met Dear when a pair of dogs escaped from his property and Dear locked them in his yard. Dear was friendly when Post arrived to retrieve the dogs but took the opportunity to complain about President Barack Obama.

"We got the dogs back and everything and as we were getting ready to leave he handed us some anti-Obama pamphlets and told us to look over them," Post said.

Post said he did not interact with Dear again until Wednesday, when the two men exchanged pleasantries at the post office.

"We all live out here because for some reason or another we like our solitude," Post said. "He seemed like a guy who wouldn't speak unless spoken to."

Post said he believed the woman was still living in Dear's trailer on Saturday morning when police, SWAT teams and firefighters arrived to search it. He said he heard a gunshot from inside before they entered.

SOUTH CAROLINA NATIVE

Dear was born in South Carolina and lived in Walterboro during the 1990s and early 2000s. He was married in 1995 to Pam Dear and records showed that he had a son, Taylor Dear.

Court records did not show any criminal convictions for Dear in South Carolina, but law enforcement officers were called on several occasions after complaints about him.

According to the Colleton County Sheriff's Office, Dear's wife accused him of assaulting her at their home in 1997, but she declined to file charges against him.

In 2002 he was accused of shooting a neighbor's dog with a pellet gun, and that same year he was arrested after being accused of hiding in the bushes at a neighbor's house and leering at her. Court records showed he was charged with peeping to invade someone's privacy, but the charge was dismissed by a judge and a restraining order was issued against him.

The Colleton County Sheriff's Office also said that Dear had been arrested for animal cruelty in 2003. No court record was available online for that case.

Fetal Remains Found in Ohio Landfills Amid Planned Parenthood Investigation, Attorney General Says (UPDATED)

An investigation by the Ohio Attorney General’s Office revealed Friday that three Planned Parenthood clinics in the state allegedly illegally disposed of aborted fetuses in landfill sites.

“Disposing of aborted fetuses from an abortion by sending them to a landfill is callous and completely inhumane,” Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine said in a press release Friday. “It is important the public be aware that these practices are taking place at these Ohio facilities.”

The investigation did not, however, report any sales of fetal tissue by the Planned Parenthood affiliates. It did. though, reveal the startling way in which three Planned Parenthood facilities in Bedford Heights, Cincinnati and Columbus had been allegedly disposing of fetal remains, which is a violation of a state ordinance that says the “fetus shall be disposed of in a humane manner.”

The report indicated that all three Planned Parenthood affiliates contracted with companies that allegedly disposed of the remains in landfills.

The facility in Bedford Heights said it used only one company, but when DeWine’s office contacted the disposal company, it said it does not accept fetal remains as part of its corporate policy.

DeWine has referred the investigation’s findings to the Ohio Department of Health for further review.

UPDATE 1:35 p.m. ET: The Ohio Attorney General’s Office is pushing back against Planned Parenthood’s refutation of their investigation.

“The vast majority of the documents showed they were going to landfills,” Dan Tierney, a spokesman for Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine’s office, told TheBlaze. “Planned Parenthood cooperated with the investigation, and that is what the findings revealed.”

Tierney said the investigation began after the release of the videos by the Center for Medical Progress and that DeWine “felt it necessary” to investigate the state’s Planned Parenthood facilities.

“Basically what the disagreement is whether disposing of fetuses is humane or not,” Tierney said. “The law requires that fetuses be disposed in a humane manner. Attorney General DeWine believes that putting a fetus in a landfill is not humane.”

UPDATE: Planned Parenthood is refuting the conclusions of the Ohio attorney general’s investigation.

Stephanie Kight, president and chief executive officer of Planned Parenthood of Greater Ohio, said the report is “not true.

“Planned Parenthood contracts with vendors to handle fetal tissue in a respectful manner and in accordance with the law. It is irresponsible for the AG to say otherwise,” she added.

Ohio AG: Aborted Babies from Planned Parenthood ‘Steam-Cooked,’ Burned and Thrown Into Garbage Dump

Aborted babies from three Planned Parenthood locations in Ohio were either “steam-cooked” or incinerated, and then sent to landfills, the state attorney general announced on Friday.

“Disposing of aborted fetuses from an abortion by sending them to a landfill is callous and completely inhumane,” said Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine said in a statement. “It is important the public be aware that these practices are taking place at these Ohio facilities.”

DeWine’s office had been investigating whether Planned Parenthood facilities in the state were selling the body parts of aborted babies following the release of national undercover videos from the Center for Medical Progress.

While determining that aborted babies in Ohio weren’t being sold to research, DeWine’s Charitable Law Section rather found that the children were being picked up by medical waste companies and either steam treated or incinerated and then dumped into a landfill with household and commercial trash.

“I think it will come as a shock to Ohioans to find out that fetuses are being cooked and then they’re being put in a landfill and they’re going to be mixed in with yesterday’s garbage,” DeWine told reporters on Friday.

He said that the practice is illegal as it violates Chapter 3701-47-05 of the Ohio abortion law, which states that a “fetus shall be disposed of in a humane manner.”

Accu Medical Waste in Marietta had been serving the Cincinnati and Columbus Planned Parenthood locations, and had transported the containers of aborted babies to its steam plant where they were autoclaved and then trucked to a landfill in Kentucky.

The medical waste giant Stericycle, which serves the Bedford Heights Planned Parenthood, had been picking up aborted babies from the location and either having them steamed or incinerated, depending on how Planned Parenthood had marked the boxes. The fetal remains were then trucked to Republic Services Carbon Limestone Landfill in Lowellville after being treated.

Corporate representatives of Stericycle had claimed to DeWine’s office during the investigation that the company does not accept fetal remains for disposal. Stericycle currently operates an incineration plant in Warren, where “pathological waste” is burned. According to the Campaign to Stop Stericycle, the company had been fined in 2011 for illegally dumping aborted babies in a landfill in Austin, Texas, and had also been found to be disposing of the babies murdered at Kermit Gosnell’s Philadelphia “House of Horrors.”

While DeWine didn’t wish to outline which method of disposal would be acceptable, he did cite to reporters that burial or cremation were more humane methods. He said that his office plans to file for an injunction in court to require that Planned Parenthood cease disposing of aborted babies in autoclaves, incineration plants and landfills.

Planned Parenthood is defending its actions, as it asserts that the aborted babies are sent to “respectful facilities.”

“I think they’re being properly disposed of,” Stephanie Kight, president of Planned Parenthood of Greater Ohio, told reporters. “That’s what my contract [with the removal companies] says. That’s what they’ve assured us of.”

She called DeWine’s investigation part of a “political agenda” to end abortion.

“Let’s be clear. This is about one thing: banning access to safe, legal abortion,” Kight said.

Accu Medical President Jim Parks says that the company has since stopped serving abortion facilities due to media attention over the matter. Stericycle is refusing to speak to reporters.

Republic Services President Don Slager could not be reached. Heath Eddlebute, the company’s vice president of operations, did not return a call for comment.

Ohio Planned Parenthood sues to 'protect abortion access'

 Planned Parenthood filed a federal lawsuit Sunday to "protect abortion access" in Ohio following Attorney General Mike DeWine's report that facilities in Cincinnati, Columbus and Cleveland improperly disposed of fetal remains.

DeWine announced Friday that a four-month investigation of the three facilities found aborted fetuses from Planned Parenthood of Southwest Ohio in Mount Auburn and the Columbus clinic contracted with a company that heats the tissue to kill bacteria and disposes of the remains in a Kentucky landfill.

"Politicians in Ohio will stop at nothing to ban abortion in all cases in our state," said Stephanie Knight, President and CEO of Planned Parenthood of Greater Ohio. "Today, we’re asking a federal court to prevent the state from this plainly political attempt to restrict women’s access to safe and legal abortion."

The Ohio Department of Health and DeWine's office are working to file a court injunction "to restrict Planned Parenthood activities where violations of law have occurred," Rick Hodges, director of the Ohio Department of Health, previously said in a statement.

The federal lawsuit filed by Planned Parenthood claims DeWine's allegations are false and inflammatory, motivated by politics with the intent to ban abortion in Ohio. The organization uses licensed medical removal companies to dispose of the fetal tissue in accordance with Ohio law, officials state in a release.

Planned Parenthood health centers comply with all laws and regulations that require safe and respectful fetal tissue disposal and has never been cited by Ohio for violation, the organization said.

“The reality is that we handle medical tissue just like other health care providers do, and we always have," Knight said. "We’re inspected regularly to ensure that we’re handling fetal tissue properly and legally.”

It's not clear if the clinics broke any Ohio laws concerning the disposal of fetal remains. Ohio Administrative Code states "a fetus shall be disposed of in a humane manner," but does not further define humane disposal and no penalties or violations are listed.

“Planned Parenthood handles medical tissue just like other health care providers do," said Jerry Lawson, CEO of Planned Parenthood Southwest Ohio. "We work with licensed medical removal companies to handle fetal tissue respectfully and safely. It's clear from the Attorney General's press conference that we've acted properly and legally, and this is just part of his longstanding political agenda to ban abortion in all cases. We won’t let that happen.”

Planned Parenthood Sues Anti-Abortion Group Behind Undercover Videos
The provider called the series of videos an "elaborate, illegal conspiracy in order to block women’s access to safe and legal abortion."


Planned Parenthood filed a federal lawsuit in San Francisco on Thursday against the anti-abortion activists that produced a series of heavily edited, secretly recorded videos of the family planning provider's staffers talking about fetal tissue donations.

The civil suit accuses the defendants -- the anti-abortion group Center for Medical Progress and a fake fetal tissue procurement company called "BioMax"-- of violating the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act and committing fraud, invasion of privacy, illegal secret recording and trespassing. The accused conspirators, David Daleiden, Troy Newman and four other activists, used fake government IDs to gain entry into private medical conferences, secretly taped conversations with Planned Parenthood staffers, and sliced up those interviews into a series of inflammatory videos that accuse the family planning provider of selling fetal tissue for profit.

Planned Parenthood said the videos, which have been viewed by millions of people since the first one came out in July, "created a poisonous environment" that has deeply threatened the security of its employees and providers. "Planned Parenthood staff has been demonized, the providers have been threatened with death, picketed at their homes, bombarded with hate mail, and forced to move or go into hiding," Beth Parker, chief legal counsel for Planned Parenthood's California affiliates, told reporters on Thursday.

Planned Parenthood says that it sometimes donates, but does not sell, fetal tissue for medical research. While the videos appear to show staffers negotiating the price of fetal tissue, the full, unedited footage shows the same staffers insisting that Planned Parenthood does not aim to profit from the donations, only to recover the costs of transporting and preserving the tissue after an abortion. Multiple investigations by state governments and congressional committees have turned up no evidence that Planned Parenthood violated the law.

Nevertheless, the videos have spurred a wave of violence and hatred against Planned Parenthood. The man accused of opening fire on a Colorado Planned Parenthood clinic in November alluded to the videos in an interview with law enforcement, and there were four arsons at Planned Parenthood affiliates in the months after the first video was released. Republican politicians have used the videos as fuel for their yearslong campaign to defund the family planning provider, although President Barack Obama has threatened to veto Congress' efforts.

Planned Parenthood is suing the defendants for compensatory and punitive damages as well as attorneys' fees. While a spokesperson for the organization says it has suffered in many ways from the undercover video campaign, she promised it will keep its doors open and continue to provide birth control, abortion services, cancer screenings and sexually transmitted infection treatments through all of its roughly 700 health centers across the country.

“CMP’s reckless and dangerous actions have created a poisonous environment that fuels political attacks on access to reproductive health care and feeds threats against our health centers,” said Kathy Kneer, CEO of Planned Parenthood Affiliates of California. “We’re going on the offensive to expose this fraud for what it is and hold the people behind it accountable -- in order to prevent further harassment of our patients and staff and protect access to the preventive and reproductive health care Planned Parenthood provides to millions of people each year.”

The Center for Medical Progress released a statement Thursday calling the lawsuit "frivolous."

"Planned Parenthood is under investigation by the United States Congress and multiple law enforcement agencies, while their business is drying up and the public is turning against their barbaric abortion for baby parts trade," the statement said. "Now they are filing a frivolous lawsuit in retaliation for CMP’s First Amendment investigative journalism that has done nothing more than tell the truth about Planned Parenthood’s lawless operations."

Planned Parenthood said it's not, in fact, under investigation by any law enforcement agencies.

Planned Parenthood Sold Hearts and Brains of 18-Week-Old Babies Minutes After Aborting Them

A shocking new report reveals the Planned parenthood abortion business in Wisconsin lied about and attempted to cover up its sales of body parts of aborted babies. The new report reveals Planned Parenthood sold the hearts and brains of 18-week-old aborted babies to the University of Wisconsin and harvested the body parts just minutes after aborting the babies.

An Alliance Defending Freedom public records request has revealed that Planned Parenthood’s Wisconsin affiliate provided researchers at the University of Wisconsin–Madison with those body parts despite the fact that both UW and Planned Parenthood Advocates of Wisconsin have denied any such exchange. The University of Wisconsin was caught last year buying aborted baby body parts from a middleman who purchased them from Planned Parenthood.

The documents ADF obtained through its state records request include forms and letters from the university and its researchers clearly indicating their arrangement with Planned Parenthood to obtain the baby parts, which were used in medical research that resulted in published studies on fetal hearts and fetal brains in 2014.

SIGN THE PETITION! Congress Must De-Fund Planned Parenthood Immediately

The revelation comes just days after the Wisconsin state Senate approved two bills that will help further de-fund the Planned Parenthood abortion business in the Badger State.

An attorney from ADF commented on the shocking new information in an email to LifeNews.com.

“Planned Parenthood has once again demonstrated its willingness to cover up its role in the gruesome baby parts trade,” said ADF Senior Counsel Matt Bowman. “Both Planned Parenthood of Wisconsin and UW-Madison publicly denied they had any arrangement to supply baby parts from women undergoing abortion to researchers conducting gruesome experiments, but the documents we obtained prove they were not telling the truth.”

Bowman said the information the legal group obtained directly contradicts public statements Planned Parenthood made.

In a Jan. 14 news release, Planned Parenthood Advocates of Wisconsin claimed, “Planned Parenthood of Wisconsin does not offer fetal tissue donation for patients…,” confirming what The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported in October of last year: “The group has said only a handful of its clinics, and none in Wisconsin, are involved in the donations.” Likewise, Marsha Mailick, vice chancellor for research and graduate education at UW-Madison, said in August of last year that Planned Parenthood is not among the organizations that supply aborted babies to the university.

According to one of the published studies, UW researchers obtained hearts and brains from babies aborted “between 10 and 18 weeks of gestational age” within five minutes of the procedure. “After the procedure, the heart was grasped with sterilized surgical instruments and carefully isolated from the rest of the thoracic content to be placed in RNAse-free plastic tubes. Fetal brain was also collected in the same fashion.” The documents ADF obtained prove the university obtained the hearts and brains from Planned Parenthood.

“Wisconsin legislators have as much reason to be concerned about the scandal-ridden nature of Planned Parenthood as lawmakers in other states and in Congress have,” said ADF Senior Counsel Casey Mattox. “Just as the state is right to end its funding relationship with an organization undeserving of taxpayer money and unworthy of anyone’s trust, it is likewise on firm legal ground to discontinue funding for research that both Planned Parenthood and the University of Wisconsin have felt the need to keep secret.”

As LifeNews previously reported, Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker was horrified by the Planned Parenthood video and called for states to defund the abortion company. In an interview with Megyn Kelly on Fox News he said, “Years ago, when I first became governor of the state of Wisconsin, my first budget, I defunded Planned Parenthood. I took some attacks from some in the media, and some in the left. But this video’s just a prime example, this is not a noncontroversial entity.”

He concluded, “This is obviously a disturbing, disgusting act that they’re talking about. We’ve outlawed that in Wisconsin in the past. We need to be defunding Planned Parenthood, not only state by state, but I think, across the country. And instead, put resources into women’s health issues, but put them into non-controversial entities, public health entities, or other things in that regard.”

Congress has had multiple hearings investigating numerous abuses and potential violation of multiple laws to sell aborted baby parts.

In the first hearing on Planned Parenthood, James Bopp, the general counsel for the National Right to Life Committee, told the House Judiciary Committee that Planned Parenthood likely broke multiple federal laws in its sale of aborted babies and their body parts for research.

He said, “Recorded conversations, released by the Center for Medical Progress reveal many legal issues with Planned Parenthood’s procedures and practices regarding fetal tissue procurement.”

During a second hearing, Democrats on the panel complained that the videos showing the abuses at Planned Parenthood were “heavily edited.” But when Republicans on the committee attempted to show the videos, they objected and refused to watch them.

At a third hearing, Planned Parenthood CEO Cecile Richards defended the sales of abortion babies. She contended that no baby has ever been born alive following a botched abortion, she essentially admitted that claims Planned Parenthood does mammograms are a lie, and she defended her exorbitantly high salary as the head of the nation’s biggest abortion business.

“These procedures and practices of Planned Parenthood, and their tissue procurement partners, show that federal laws when applicable, have been and are continuing to be violated during the procurement and sale of human fetal tissue,” Bopp explained.

The expose’ videos catching Planned Parenthood officials selling the body parts of aborted babies have shocked the nation. Here is a list of all eleven:

In the first video: Dr. Deborah Nucatola of Planned Parenthood commented on baby-crushing: “We’ve been very good at getting heart, lung, liver, because we know that, so I’m not gonna crush that part, I’m gonna basically crush below, I’m gonna crush above, and I’m gonna see if I can get it all intact.”
In the second video: Planned Parenthood’s Dr. Mary Gatter joked, “I want a Lamborghini” as she negotiated the best price for baby parts.
In the third video: Holly O’Donnell, a former Stem Express employee who worked inside a Planned Parenthood clinic, detailed first-hand the unspeakable atrocities and how she fainted in horror over handling baby legs.
In the fourth video: Planned Parenthood’s Dr. Savita Ginde stated, “We don’t want to do just a flat-fee (per baby) of like, $200. A per-item thing works a little better, just because we can see how much we can get out of it.” She also laughed while looking at a plate of fetal kidneys that were “good to go.”
In the fifth video: Melissa Farrell of Planned Parenthood-Gulf Coast in Houston boasted of Planned Parenthood’s skill in obtaining “intact fetal cadavers” and how her “research” department “contributes so much to the bottom line of our organization here, you know we’re one of the largest affiliates, our Research Department is the largest in the United States.”
In the sixth video: Holly O’Donnell described technicians taking fetal parts without patient consent: “There were times when they would just take what they wanted. And these mothers don’t know. And there’s no way they would know.”
In the seventh and perhaps most disturbing video: Holly O’Donnell described the harvesting, or “procurement,” of organs from a nearly intact late-term fetus aborted at Planned Parenthood Mar Monte’s Alameda clinic in San Jose, CA. “‘You want to see something kind of cool,’” O’Donnell says her supervisor asked her. “And she just taps the heart, and it starts beating. And I’m sitting here and I’m looking at this fetus, and its heart is beating, and I don’t know what to think.”
In the eighth video: StemExpress CEO Cate Dyer admits Planned Parenthood sells “a lot of” fully intact aborted babies.
The ninth video: catches a Planned Parenthood medical director discussing how the abortion company sells fully intact aborted babies — including one who “just fell out” of the womb.
The 10th video: catches the nation’s biggest abortion business selling specific body parts — including the heart, eyes and “gonads” of unborn babies.The video also shows the shocking ways in which Planned Parenthood officials admit that they are breaking federal law by selling aborted baby body parts for profit.
Unreleased Videos: Unreleased videos from CMP show Deb Vanderhei of Planned Parenthood caught on tape talking about how Planned Parenthood abortion business affiliates may “want to increase revenue [from selling baby parts] but we can’t stop them…” Another video has a woman talking about the “financial incentives” of selling aborted baby body parts.
The 11th video: catches a texas Planned Parenthood abortionist planning to sell the intact heads of aborted babies for research. Amna Dermish is caught on tape describing an illegal partial-birth abortion procedure to terminate living, late-term unborn babies which she hopes will yield intact fetal heads for brain harvesting.
SIGN THE PETITION! Congress Must Investigate Planned Parenthood for Selling Aborted Baby Parts

The full, unedited videos have confirmed that revelations that some aborted baby remains sold by Planned Parenthood go to biotech companies for the purpose of creating “humanized” mice. Meanwhile, Planned Parenthood has been exposed as having sold body parts from aborted babies for as much as 15 years.

The federal law that technically prohibits the sale of aborted babies and their body parts was written by a pro-abortion Congressman decades ago and essentially spells out a process by which sellers of aborted baby body parts can meet certain criteria that allows the sales to be legal. That’s why a Colorado congressman has introduced legislation to totally ban the sales of aborted baby body parts.

The end is near, praise Jesus!

Planned Parenthood cleared, but 2 indicted over video

A grand jury convened to investigate whether a Houston Planned Parenthood clinic had sold the organs of aborted fetuses on Monday cleared the clinic and instead indicted the undercover videographers behind the allegations, surprising the officials who called for the probe and delighting supporters of the women's health organization.

The Harris County grand jury indicted David Daleiden and Sandra Merritt, both of California, on charges of tampering with a governmental record, a second-degree felony with a possible sentence of up to 20 years in prison. It also charged Daleiden, the leader of the videographers, with the same misdemeanor he had alleged – the purchase or sale of human organs, presumably because he had offered to buy in an attempt to provoke Planned Parenthood employees into saying they would sell.

Harris County District Attorney Devon Anderson announced the indictments in a statement, noting the probe had lasted more than two months.

"As I stated at the outset of this investigation, we must go where the evidence leads us," said Anderson, a Republican. "All the evidence uncovered in the course of this investigation was presented to the grand jury. I respect their decision on this difficult case."

An arrest warrant was issued late Monday; documents detailing the charges were expected to be available Tuesday.

The videographers, who had posed as employees of a company that buys tissue and filmed interactions with Planned Parenthood executives, issued a statement saying they had not committed any crimes.

"The Center for Medical Progress uses the same undercover techniques that investigative journalists have used for decades in exercising our First Amendment rights to freedom of speech and of the press, and follows all applicable laws," the statement said, adding, "Planned Parenthood still cannot deny the admissions from their leadership about fetal organ sales captured on video for all the world to see."

Planned Parenthood has denied any such admissions or wrongdoing, calling the videos heavily edited and saying it has never profited from selling fetal tissue, only received reimbursements for the costs of preserving the tissue for research, which is legal. The group sued Daleiden last month.

Anderson's statement said the grand jury "cleared (Planned Parenthood) of breaking the law."

Still, the dozen videos released by the Center for Medical Progress of Planned Parenthood clinics around the country already have had a huge impact, including an effort in Congress to defund the organization.

In Texas, lawmakers are studying new laws on fetal tissue donation, and the Texas Health and Human Services Commission said it will drop Planned Parenthood from the Medicaid program.

More probes pursued

The Harris County investigation was one of several that began in the state after the center released footage of a Houston clinic executive casually discussing the methods and costs of preserving fetal tissue, which Republican state officials said was proof the organization was making a profit.

Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick, a tea party firebrand from Houston, was the first to call for the Harris County District Attorney's Office to investigate. He also directed a state Senate committee to conduct its own probe.

On Monday, Patrick issued a statement saying the Senate probe would continue because "the horrific nature of these videos demand scrutiny and investigation."

Gov. Greg Abbott and Attorney General Ken Paxton, who also ordered their own investigations, released statements saying they would continue.

"The fact remains that the videos exposed the horrific nature of abortion and the shameful disregard for human life of the abortion industry," Paxton said.

Planned Parenthood officials declared victory, however, saying they felt vindicated after being cleared by the lengthy non-partisan investigation.

"It's great news because it demonstrates what we have said from the very beginning, which is that Planned Parenthood is following every rule and regulation, and that these people came into our buildings under the guise of health when their true intentions were to spread lies," said Rochelle Tafolla, a spokeswoman for Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast, which runs the Houston clinic as well as facilities in Louisiana.

Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast previously has acknowledged donating fetal tissue in 2010, but has said it did not make any profit then and has not even donated since.

Across the country, two Planned Parenthood branches currently participate in tissue donation programs, according to the organization.

The National Abortion Federation was more direct in its celebration of the indictments.

"As we've known all along, David Daleiden is the one who broke the law, not abortion providers," said Vicki Saporta, the abortion-rights group's president and CEO.

Legislation sought

Daleiden, 26, has said he was a "child of a crisis pregnancy" and has been involved with anti-abortion work since he was 15. He was involved in undercover video work by a group called Live Action in 2007.

He spent years working on the effort on fetal tissue, which is not studied often today, but in the past has helped lead to several medical breakthroughs, including an early polio vaccine.

Planned Parenthood has said he secretly recorded staff and patients at least 65 times over the last eight years. The organization also has alleged that Daleiden used aliases, obtained fake government identifications and formed a fake tissue procurement company to gain access to private areas and record private conversations to be deceptively edited.

THE BACKLASH: Abbott wants harsher penalties in wake of Planned Parenthood videos

The second indictment suggests the grand jury found that he went too far in trying to provoke Planned Parenthood to admit to selling tissue. That charge, for intentionally buying or selling a human organ, is punishable by up to a year in jail while tampering with a governmental record could result a sentence of up to 20 years.

That would be a high price to pay, despite the success that Daleiden had in sparking investigations and legislative studies.

The indictments did not appear to have any chance of slowing those efforts.

In fact, one prominent anti-abortion activist suggested that they were more proof that laws needed to be changed.

"I think the grand jury decision today shows that we have very weak laws when it comes to this," said John Seago of Texas Right to Life. "The Legislature needs to address this."

Planned Parenthood Board Member Works in Office of D.A. Who Prosecuted Pro-Life Investigator

A member of the board of Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast works in the office of the district attorney who pursued the prosecution of a pro-life investigator before a grand jury, while the abortion giant went free.

David Daleiden of the Center for Medical Progress (CMP) was indicted on Monday by a grand jury in Houston on a felony charge of “tampering with a governmental record” for creating a fake driver’s license in conducting his undercover investigation, as well as a misdemeanor count related to the purchasing of human tissue.

Daleiden, 27, had posed as a representative of a fetal tissue procurement company in order to engage in discussions with Planned Parenthood officials as a potential buyer of bodily organs. He recorded the interactions, conducted at various locations across the country, as part of his “human capital” investigative series that was released in July.

Sandra Merritt, 62, was also charged with tampering with a governmental record for likewise printing the license, which was used to obtain access to Planned Parenthood gathering in Houston.

While Daleiden and Merritt were charged for seeking to buy fetal tissue, Planned Parenthood was not charged for agreeing to obtain compensation for the body parts of aborted babies, nor outlining that it had been doing so with other scientific companies nationwide. Planned Parenthood President Cecile Richards announced after several of the videos were released that the organization would cease accepting compensation for fetal organs following outrage over the matter.

“The Center for Medical Progress uses the same undercover techniques that investigative journalists have used for decades in exercising our First Amendment rights to freedom of speech and of the press, and follows all applicable laws,” Daleiden said in a statement.

“We respect the processes of the Harris County district attorney, and note that buying fetal tissue requires a seller as well,” he noted. “Planned Parenthood still cannot deny the admissions from their leadership about fetal organ sales captured on video for all the world to see.”

    Connect with Christian News

There have also been concerns following the discovery that a prosecutor in the Harris County district attorney’s Division of Criminal Family Law also serves as a director on the board of Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast.

According to reports, Lauren Reeder told District Attorney Devon Anderson earlier this year about her work with the abortion giant in order to be “transparent.” However, she also said that she didn’t see a conflict of interest in the situation.

“I don’t think there’s any conflict in my dual roles in two separate organizations,” Reeder told reporters.

Anderson said that Reeder would not be involved with the case.

“She will not be involved in any manner in this investigation,” she told the Houston Chronicle. “If at any time in the future, reliable and credible information is brought to my attention that would question our ability to continue to perform a fair, thorough and independent investigation of this matter due to her board membership, I will revisit the issue of seeking the appointment of an independent prosecutor and act accordingly.”

Some still find the situation to be ironic.

“Daleiden is being charged with the very crime he was exposing? Seriously?” writes Tim Brown with Freedom Outpost. “He can play the part, just like police do when they engage in drug busts, but have only the intention of exposing the crime and yet, he is the one charged with what these devils are engaged in?”

“Why are the company executives shown in the videos not also being indicted for being willing to make the sale? If it’s wrong to make a purchase of baby parts, surely it is wrong to be selling them,” he said. “The double standard of the DA’s office is right out in the open for all to see! This is an injustice!”

New Video Exposes Planned Parenthood’s ‘Accounting Gimmicks’ in Hiding Sale of Baby Body Parts

A new video released by the Center for Medical Progress (CMP) reportedly captures the abortion giant Planned Parenthood explaining how it engages in “accounting gimmicks” to hide the compensation it receives for the bodily organs of aborted babies.

The video features Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast Director of Research Melissa Farrell outlining how the organization creatively receives reimbursement specifically for the babies themselves, above and beyond any administrative costs.

It also features invoices a Texas branch of Planned Parenthood sent to the University of Texas medical branch to show how the organization divides the costs into two categories, with the $25 “per specimen” fee being craftily labeled as “per consent.”

“We had two levels of invoicing for them,” Farrell explains in the footage, stating that the organization charged for obtaining consent from the mothers. “We had it worded as ‘per consent,’ because the consent process was the administrative part that we had to do. Then we had an overall ‘administrative fee’ for basically working it into the clinics themselves. And at the time, ‘per consent’ was 25 dollars.”

She then, however, acknowledges that “per consent” really means a charge per “specimen,” but that Planned Parenthood had to word the invoice a certain way due to ethical boundaries.

“[W]e technically can’t—ethically..,” she says, trying to find the words to explain. “Based on what I’m reading here, I think it’s paying for the specimen itself.”

David Daleiden, who poses undercover as a representative from a fetal procurement company, then remarks, “Right. On paper, it’s got to be massaged a little.”

Farrell agrees.

Later in the discussion, after Ferrell suggests that the organizations work “a la carte” to obtain whatever organs are desired, CMP investigator Sandra Merritt states, “I just don’t want to turn it into a situation where it’s not financially beneficial for you.”

“I’ll take you up on that,” Ferrell replies, laughing.

“Because that’s how we’re going to keep you happy; right? To make sure you’re financially growing your clinic, and however you need to say that (on paper), frame it on the other end,” Merritt says.

Ferrell agrees, nodding and saying yes numerous times.

The footage also shows remarks released in a previous video, where Ferrell explains that accounting for the baby parts is all “just a matter of line items.”

“If we alter our process and we are able to obtain intact fetal cadavers, then we can make it part of the budget that any dissections are this, and splitting the specimens into different shipments is this,” she says. “I mean, it’s all just a matter of line items.”

The documents obtained by CMP show that Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast charged the University of Texas over $3,700 for what it wrote on paper as a “consent payment” for 25 babies, but what Ferrell noted is “paying for the specimen itself.”

“The evidence that Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast charged exorbitant amounts of taxpayer money in exchange for fetal specimens that it provided at nearly zero cost is overwhelming,” Daleiden, who is expected to appear in court today over charges relating to his investigation, said in a statement on Wednesday. “Governor Abbott and Attorney General Paxton need to send a strong message that Houston’s children are not for sale, and they must immediately appoint a special prosecutor to hold Planned Parenthood accountable to the law.”

Daleiden’s attorneys with the Thomas More Society are working to have his charges dismissed.

“David used standard undercover journalism techniques to catch Planned Parenthood staff agreeing to alter abortion procedures to get more intact organs and tissue from aborted babies, presumably without telling their patients,” he said. “David also caught Planned Parenthood staff discussing how to adjust accounting line items to conceal profits from baby body part transactions. Planned Parenthood’s lawyers in Houston have now admitted they dreamed up and demanded the charges against David, apparently in order to distract prosecutors and the public from their own bad acts.”

Ohio House De-Funds Planned Parenthood After It Sells Aborted Baby Parts, Cuts $1 Million

After the Planned Parenthood abortion company was caught in multiple states selling aborted babies and their body parts, several states have taken steps to de-fund it. Ohio is the next up to the plate with new legislation to de-fund Planned Parenthood, which runs approximately one-third of the abortion centers in the Buckeye State.

Today, the Ohio state House voted 59-32 to cut Planned Parenthood funding — following a similar vote in the Ohio state Senate last month. Ohio is now the 9th state to take action against Planned Parenthood funding after the expose videos were first released last year.

Last month, legislation to de-fund Planned Parenthood (H.B. 294) was approved by the Ohio Senate on a 22-8 vote. Sponsored by Representatives Margaret Conditt (R-Liberty Township) and Bill Patmon (D-Cleveland), this legislation cuts over $1 million in yearly federal grants to Planned Parenthood, the country’s largest abortion company.

In November, the Ohio House passed the legislation, 62-30 and voted today to concur with minor changes the Senate made to the bill. House Bill 294 now heads to the desk of Governor John Kasich, who has signed 16 Ohio Right to Life initiatives over the last five years and is expected to sign it.

This legislation, which is at the top of Ohio Right to Life’s 2015-2016 legislative agenda, received renewed interest following the release of undercover videos showing Planned Parenthood officials negotiating dollar amounts for aborted babies’ body parts. In December, Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine revealed that in Ohio, Planned Parenthood locations are contracting with companies that dump fetal remains in landfills.

“This legislation has been at the top of Ohio Right to Life’s legislative agenda for years,” said Stephanie Ranade Krider, executive director of Ohio Right to Life. “Thanks to the thoughtful, careful work of the Ohio House and Senate, the taxpayer dollars of pro-life Ohioans like myself will now be shielded from the abortion industry. This is an incredible victory for the pro-life cause in Ohio and for the national pro-life movement’s collective efforts to de-fund the abortion industry chief, Planned Parenthood.”

“Ohio’s pro-life leaders have shown the public how to respond to the heinous actions of the abortion industry,” said Krider. “With bipartisanship, with compassion, and with moral courage, the House and Senate have delivered to Governor Kasich a piece of legislation that will go down as historical. This legislation will mark the extraordinary moment when Ohio decided to get out of the abortion business.”

A strong majority of Ohio residents want Planned Parenthood to be de-funded and the money redirected to community health centers, according to a new poll.

Pollsters found 64 percent of Ohioans believe that Congress should end taxpayer funding to Planned Parenthood, which received more than $528 million in taxpayer funding in 2014.

Even more Ohioans (68 percent) say taxpayers should not subsidize a group liked Planned Parenthood, and the government should redirect funding to the thousands of health clinics across the country that provide comprehensive health care to women and their families.

Casey Mattox, senior counsel for Alliance Defending Freedom, testified that the legislation is both constitutional and consistent with applicable federal law. Julie Moore, director of operations for Pregnancy Decision Health Centers in Columbus, testified as a representative of Ohio‘s vast network of pregnancy help centers that assist women facing unplanned pregnancies. Dr. Kathleen Lutter testified as an OB-GYN physician who has practiced medicine for 31 years.

SIGN THE PETITION! Congress Must Investigate Planned Parenthood for Selling Aborted Baby Parts

The expose’ videos catching Planned Parenthood officials selling the body parts of aborted babies have shocked the nation. Here is a list of all eleven:

    In the first video: Dr. Deborah Nucatola of Planned Parenthood commented on baby-crushing: “We’ve been very good at getting heart, lung, liver, because we know that, so I’m not gonna crush that part, I’m gonna basically crush below, I’m gonna crush above, and I’m gonna see if I can get it all intact.”

    In the second video: Planned Parenthood’s Dr. Mary Gatter joked, “I want a Lamborghini” as she negotiated the best price for baby parts.

    In the third video: Holly O’Donnell, a former Stem Express employee who worked inside a Planned Parenthood clinic, detailed first-hand the unspeakable atrocities and how she fainted in horror over handling baby legs.

    In the fourth video: Planned Parenthood’s Dr. Savita Ginde stated, “We don’t want to do just a flat-fee (per baby) of like, $200. A per-item thing works a little better, just because we can see how much we can get out of it.” She also laughed while looking at a plate of fetal kidneys that were “good to go.”

    In the fifth video: Melissa Farrell of Planned Parenthood-Gulf Coast in Houston boasted of Planned Parenthood’s skill in obtaining “intact fetal cadavers” and how her “research” department “contributes so much to the bottom line of our organization here, you know we’re one of the largest affiliates, our Research Department is the largest in the United States.”

    In the sixth video: Holly O’Donnell described technicians taking fetal parts without patient consent: “There were times when they would just take what they wanted. And these mothers don’t know. And there’s no way they would know.”

    In the seventh and perhaps most disturbing video: Holly O’Donnell described the harvesting, or “procurement,” of organs from a nearly intact late-term fetus aborted at Planned Parenthood Mar Monte’s Alameda clinic in San Jose, CA. “‘You want to see something kind of cool,’” O’Donnell says her supervisor asked her. “And she just taps the heart, and it starts beating. And I’m sitting here and I’m looking at this fetus, and its heart is beating, and I don’t know what to think.”

    In the eighth video: StemExpress CEO Cate Dyer admits Planned Parenthood sells “a lot of” fully intact aborted babies.

    The ninth video: catches a Planned Parenthood medical director discussing how the abortion company sells fully intact aborted babies — including one who “just fell out” of the womb.

    The 10th video: catches the nation’s biggest abortion business selling specific body parts — including the heart, eyes and “gonads” of unborn babies.The video also shows the shocking ways in which Planned Parenthood officials admit that they are breaking federal law by selling aborted baby body parts for profit.

    Unreleased Videos: Unreleased videos from CMP show Deb Vanderhei of Planned Parenthood caught on tape talking about how Planned Parenthood abortion business affiliates may “want to increase revenue [from selling baby parts] but we can’t stop them…” Another video has a woman talking about the “financial incentives” of selling aborted baby body parts.

    The 11th video catches a Texas Planned Parenthood abortionist planning to sell the intact heads of aborted babies for research. Amna Dermish is caught on tape describing an illegal partial-birth abortion procedure to terminate living, late-term unborn babies which she hopes will yield intact fetal heads for brain harvesting.

House Panel Investigates Documents Promising ‘Financial Benefit’ to Abortion Clinics for Fetal Body Parts

The House Select Panel on Infant Lives held a hearing Wednesday regarding “The Pricing of Fetal Tissue” in an effort to determine if abortion clinics are profiting from the sale of aborted fetal body parts.

The panel released documents from one middleman tissue procurement business promising a financial benefit to clinics.



The panel was formed last year in response to undercover videos by the Center for Medical Progress that raised allegations that Planned Parenthood, the nation’s largest abortion provider, trafficked in aborted fetal tissue. Planned Parenthood has denied wrongdoing.

“This does not sound to me like tissue donation for research,” Rep. Marsha Blackburn (R-Tenn.), the panel’s chairman, said during the hearing. “This sounds like someone who wants to make money, a lot of money, selling baby body parts.”

Rep. Jan Schakowsky (D.-Ill.), ranking member on the panel, called the founder of the Center for Medical Progress “a proven liar” and claimed that his videos “are not accurate or reliable.”

Sens. Jeanne Shaheen (D-N.H.) and Ben Sasse (R-Neb.) testified during the hearing.

“This panel was formed with political motivations,” Shaheen argued, adding that she believes it should be disbanded because it constitutes an “inappropriate misuse of federal resources.”

But Sasse argued that the panel is doing valuable work because no life is “disposable.”

“Our humanity should be repulsed,” he said. “Here, on this, we can and should agree: Babies are not the sum of their body parts. They’re meant to be welcomed and nurtured.”

The filmmaker behind the videos, David Daleiden, said in a statement:

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.

House Panel Proves David Daleiden Was Right

At its much-anticipated hearing Wednesday morning, the Select Panel on Infant Lives released a series of exhibits that prove beyond a doubt that Planned Parenthood has been lying to the American people about whether or not it illegally profits from trafficking aborted baby tissue and organs.

Troy Newman, president of Operation Rescue, also served as a founding board member for the Center for Medical Progress, which produced videos exposing the illegal trade. And following the Select Panel's document release, he's speaking out.

"It is clear from the documentation released by the Select Panel that money paid to Planned Parenthood in exchange for aborted baby remains qualified as illegal 'valuable consideration.' This completely validates every allegation that was put forth by investigators from the Center for Medical Progress," he said. "Planned Parenthood has engaged in an aggressive public relations campaign to convince the public that videos released by the Center for Medical Progress were 'hoaxed' and that Planned Parenthood never profited from the sale of fetal remains. Now we all can see for ourselves that this was a bold-faced lie. Planned Parenthood should be prosecuted for their crimes. They must not be held above the law."

The Select Panel exhibits were accompanied by a white paper on the pricing of fetal tissue produced by congressional staff members. The white paper explains how all of the costs of tissue procurement were absorbed by the organ procurement companies, such as Stem Express, and that Planned Parenthood essentially incurred no costs.

The documentation also shows that Planned Parenthood clinics were awarded $10,000 contract signing bonuses by one procurement company that were disguised as donations. Those bonuses were in addition to money paid for POCs—"products of conception," the term Planned Parenthood uses to dehumanize the aborted baby tissue—and blood samples.

For example, four Planned Parenthood clinics in California were paid more than $11,000 in August 2012 for 171 "POCs" and 196 blood samples harvested at their facilities. A review of a tissue procurement company's website shows a list of organs that were available for sale, including brains, hearts, livers, glands and even scalps.

The Center for Medical Progress, Operation Rescue and the Select Panel all agree these organs had to be procured from abortion facilities like Planned Parenthood.

"Now you do not have to be a lawyer to see what's going on here," Rep. Marsha Blackburn (R-Tenn.), Chairman of the Select Panel, said. "You put up a website that offers any baby body part imaginable—and why on earth do they need a baby scalp? Then you pick the gestation period and then check out."

Newman said the answer to Blackburn's question is "grisly."

"Tissue wasn't just being used for 'medical' research but by commercial entities for the use in the development of products for sale to the public," he said. "The male hair growth industry is a very lucrative one."

New Evidence: Baby Body Parts are Big Business

 The House Select Investigative Panel on Infant Lives released new evidence April 19 of procurement businesses selling aborted baby body parts for profit.
 
Amid growing optimism surrounding fetal tissue research in 1993, Congress lifted the ban on obtaining samples from abortion centers. The move was a bipartisan effort and included many safeguards designed to ensure the sale of baby body parts never became a money-making business.
 
According to evidence obtained from tissue procurement companies, those safeguards failed.
 
The House panel released the new documents ahead of its second congressional hearing. The papers show middleman businesses, separate from abortion centers and research facilities, profit between 300 and 400 percent from each sample of fetal tissue sold.
 
Last summer, undercover videos collected by David Daleiden and the Center for Medical Progress showed abortion facilities might be part of a fetal tissue procurement network designed to profit from the sale of baby body parts.
 
Congress established the House panel in October to investigate questions raised by the videos, including federal funding and support for abortion providers, such as Planned Parenthood, and the ethics and policies surrounding fetal tissue procurement.
 
The National Institutes of Health Revitalization Act of 1993 reversed the ban on fetal tissue transplantation research procurement. At that time, two competing amendments in the House offered safeguards on the operation—one filed by former Rep. Thomas Bliley Jr., R-Va., and one by former Rep. Henry Waxman, D-Calif. Waxman’s version eventfully won out, creating the guidelines for how fetal tissue procurement should work.
 
“It would be abhorrent to allow for a sale of fetal tissue and a market to be created for that sale,” Waxman said during floor debates.
 
To ensure abortion centers would not suffer from the added cost of providing tissue samples to researchers, the statute allowed for reimbursements equal to related expenditures.
 
Congress crafted a non-profit model that allowed researchers to pay abortion centers and abortionists equal to the amount of transportation, storage, or other costs related to the process. Waxman even included a 10-year felony charge in the statute for anyone who violated the system.
 
After investigating one of the procurement businesses that can only operate legally as a non-profit middleman, the panel found its annual revenue grew from $9,000 in 2010 to more than $6 million in 2014. The panel did not make the company’s name public.
 
The business operates by taking orders from researchers and partnering with abortion centers to keep its supply in stock. In 2010, the procurement business had three partner abortion centers, and before the undercover videos came out, it was on track to have about 300 by 2016.
 
The panel will argue today that a business cannot grow at that torrid pace without making a profit.
 
But many continue to question the validity of those concerns.
 
Last week during a town hall hosted by MSNBC, Meet the Press moderator Chuck Todd told Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz the scandal surrounding Planned Parenthood and procurement businesses was “made up.”
 
“Let me tell you what there is no controversy about, it is a federal crime—a felony with a 10-year prison term—to sell the body parts of unborn children for profit,” Cruz retorted. “Listen, even if you’re pro-choice, selling the body parts of unborn children as a commercial endeavor is a horrifying thing.”
 
During the panel’s first hearing, Rep. Diane Black, R-Tenn., called one fetal tissue procurement business “the Amazon.com for human parts.”
 
The panel saved several screen grabs from recently shuttered websites that allowed customers to add baby organs such as brains, hearts, lungs, and livers to virtual shopping carts. Customers could select how many samples of each they wanted and from what gestational periods. Prices were highest for babies at 14-19 weeks gestation.
 
At least one company hired procurement technicians for $10 an hour—plus $30 for each sale—to do the leg work of rounding up parts at abortion centers.
 
Technicians would visit partnered abortion centers at the beginning of the week and match orders from customers to the list of women scheduled for abortions. The technicians asked women to sign a consent form, collected the baby’s remains after the abortion, and packaged and shipped the order to customers.
 
“The procurement techs are promised bonuses for particular baby parts, with stomachs, bladders, and lungs resulting in a higher per-item bonus than ears, kidneys, or tongues,” said Marjorie Dannenfelser, president of the Susan B. Anthony List, who viewed the panel’s research. “This barbarism degrades our nation and violates federal laws against such profiteering. We commend the select panel for its investigative work thus far and call on the Department of Justice to take immediate action.”
 
One procurement business invoice showed direct costs associated with gathering tissue from a baby’s brain at about $300. The costs included paying the procurement technicians an hourly wage, plus $30 for securing the sample, paying the abortion center $50 for access to the sample, and transportation costs.
 
The company sold brain samples to customers for more than $3,000 each.
