(Washington, DC)—This week, a second undercover video was released showing a Planned Parenthood senior official haggling over payments for baby body parts and offering to use a "less crunchy technique" to obtain intact aborted babies. In the wake of last week's revelations, nearly 24,000 have signed Family Research Council's petition calling on Congress to immediately impose a moratorium on taxpayer dollars going to Planned Parenthood. Family Research Council President Tony Perkins made the following statement about latest video:
"This latest video is beyond the pale and demands immediate action by Congress. The Republican leadership in Congress should move quickly to pass a moratorium on federal taxpayer funding to the billion-dollar abortion giant that derives nearly half of its money from American taxpayers.
"Taxpayers have been trying for years to distance themselves from Planned Parenthood, to no avail... [while] religious charities face the loss of government contracts for holding pro-life views while tax dollars continue flowing to an organization under investigation for trafficking in the body parts of babies.
"We do not believe that Congress should turn a blind eye to late abortions when science proves that unborn children can feel pain. Americans should not be forced to subsidize this billion dollar organization under investigation for the trafficking of baby body parts and for other possible violations law. The flow of money from taxpayers to this organization must end," concluded Perkins.
