FBI Signals Criminal Probe into Planned Parenthood's Trafficking of Aborted Baby Parts

Pete Baklinski : Nov 15, 2017  LifeSiteNews

"The FBI's investigation of Planned Parenthood's taxpayer-funded, criminal abortion enterprise is long overdue. Planned Parenthood's sale of aborted baby body parts is the greatest human atrocity of our times and must finally be brought to justice under the law." – David Daleiden

(Washington, DC) — [Lifesitenews.com] The FBI has requested un-redacted documents from Congress that were obtained during the 2015 hearings on Planned Parenthood's allegedly illegal trafficking of aborted baby body parts for profit, reported The Hill.

Reported The Hill:

The request was made in recent days, the sources said, to the Senate Judiciary Committee, whose chairman, Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-IA), last December referred Planned Parenthood and several other abortion providers to the FBI for investigation after a lengthy probe into the transfers of fetal tissue.

Grassley said at the time that his committee had uncovered enough evidence in its final investigative report to show abortion providers had transferred tissue and body parts from aborted fetuses to firms for use in research by charging dollar amounts above their actual costs.

The Justice Department declined comment, saying it does not confirm nor deny whether an investigation is taking place.

It was two summers ago that the Center for Medical Progress released undercover videos allegedly showing Planned Parenthood's illegal selling of aborted baby parts, including hearts, lungs, livers, and brains, for profit.

The videos led to Planned Parenthood facing investigations at both state and federal levels. The abortion organization has so far managed to dodge any conviction for the wrongdoing suggested in the undercover videos.

Pro-life groups around the country welcomed the news of a possible criminal investigation of Planned Parenthood.

"We welcome the Justice Department's investigation of Planned Parenthood," said Susan B. Anthony List President Marjorie Dannenfelser.

"Not content with their status as the nation's largest abortion business, evidence shows Planned Parenthood sought to squeeze every last opportunity for cash from the sale of hearts, brains, lungs, and livers of the unborn children whose lives they end," she said.

"Planned Parenthood and its associates are terrified of having their sordid business model exposed. We commend the Trump administration for holding them accountable and urge Congress to follow through on the promise to redirect the half billion dollars in taxpayer funding the abortion giant receives each year," she added.

Planned Parenthood has reacted by saying it "strongly disagrees with the recommendations of the Senate Republican staff to refer this matter to the Justice Department."

"These accusations are baseless, and a part of a widely discredited attempt to end access to reproductive health care at Planned Parenthood. Planned Parenthood has never, and would never, profit while facilitating its patients' choice to donate fetal tissue for use in important medical research," said Dana Singiser, vice president of Government Affairs for Planned Parenthood Federation of America, reported The Hill.

But David Daleiden, founder and project lead at the Center for Medical Progress, said that his undercover videos of Planned Parenthood show otherwise.

"After Planned Parenthood's top doctors were caught on camera casually negotiating the sale of aborted baby hearts, lungs, livers, and brains, two Congressional investigations confirmed there were ‘systematic' violations of federal law in Planned Parenthood's aborted baby parts business and issued criminal referrals to the FBI and US DOJ," he said in a statement.

"The FBI's investigation of Planned Parenthood's taxpayer-funded, criminal abortion enterprise is long overdue. Planned Parenthood's sale of aborted baby body parts is the greatest human atrocity of our times and must finally be brought to justice under the law," he added.
