Planned Parenthood is on the ropes, reeling from months of being exposed for its sickeningly evil practice of selling the bodies of murdered babies for parts.
In an attempt to deflect attention from its atrocities, it has sent the several congressional committees that have opened up federal investigations into Planned Parenthood’s practices a “nothing to see here” letter.
Yet, even in its multiple deceptions and distortions, Planned Parenthood makes a number of stunning admissions about its abortion and baby harvesting practices.
First, Planned Parenthood admits that “abortion” is a “core” service, meaning it is one that “every affiliate is required to provide.”
Second, as a result of the investigative journalists exposing Planned Parenthood’s baby harvesting practice, the abortion giant admits that at least 4 of its 59 national affiliates have suddenly stopped all baby harvesting. One can only wonder why.
Third, according to Planned Parenthood, it just lost at least 33% of baby harvesting business because it just lost a key buyer when StemExpress recently cut ties with Planned Parenthood.
Fourth, while Planned Parenthood attempts to downplay its involvement in baby organ harvesting and employs numerous accounting gimmicks in its letter, the evidence Planned Parenthood admits to is that nearly 20% of its affiliates, which could amount to over 100 affiliates, have been involved selling murdered babies for parts over the last five years alone.
Fifth, Planned Parenthood claims it has advised all clinics of the federal law banning the sale of aborted babies and the expansive loophole in the law that allows for extensive “reimbursement.”
However, this supposed policy was issued in “May 2015,” just three months ago, near the end the Center for Medical Progress’s undercover investigation – and one can presume likely after Planned Parenthood got wind it was about to be exposed.
Sixth, Planned Parenthood also admits that it receives “$60 per tissue specimen.” $60 for every dead baby part sold can add up quickly.
Seventh, Planned Parenthood makes this shocking assertion about federal law: “The federal rules relating to consent and timing and method of abortion when the donated tissue is used for federally funded fetal transplantation research are therefore not applicable to any recent fetal tissue donations in the United States.”
What this means is that Planned Parenthood is boldly asserting that federal law requiring the informed consent of the woman and requiring no alteration in the timing and method (how the abortion is performed) is “not applicable” to Planned Parenthood.
As absurd as this sounds, Planned Parenthood may have just found another massive loophole in the law to exploit the bodies of the babies it has killed for financial gain at the expense of the health and safety of the women in the hands of its supposed “care.”
We know from the videos that Planned Parenthood abortionists change the procedures; they will “crush” here and “crush” there and alter the presentation of the abortion to ensure they get intact (read: more financially valuable) babies.
Eighth, and worse yet, Planned Parenthood goes on in their letter to Congress to state that they “voluntarily” required both informed consent and disallowed any alteration. We’ve seen the consent form and we’ve heard the abortionists discussing issuing them in the videos. What this means is Planned Parenthood is violating its own informed consent forms – which is called medical malpractice.
We also know that after women refuse to give consent, Planned Parenthood may still sell the baby parts.
Ninth, Planned Parenthood claims that only “1%” of its businesses sell murdered baby parts (note that 1% of Planned Parenthood’s reported $1.145 billion dollars in annual affiliate revenue would be $11.45 million dollars). Sound familiar to its now discredited (even by the mainstream media) 3% lie about abortion “services”?
Planned Parenthood has been exposed. Its abortion allies are abandoning it. The mainstream media is questioning the abortion giant for the first time. Congress and numerous states are seriously investigating its barbaric practices.
Now is not the time to let up. The Supreme Court is about to consider a critical case out of Texas that could shut down dozens of abortion clinics statewide and be the model law for the nation. At the ACLJ, we’ll be filing a critical amicus brief in that case. We’re also representing one of the board members of the Center for Medical Progress – the pro-life investigative journalists exposing Planned Parenthood – in a major federal case against the abortion industry.
It’s been a long time coming, but Planned Parenthood’s abortion behemoth is beginning to crack.
