Democrats desperate to protect Planned Parenthood’s sinking ship seek punitive DOJ investigation of Center for Medical Progress.
David Daleiden, Director of the Center for Medical Progress, appeared on the Hannity Fox News program last night discussing his nearly 3-year investigation into Planned Parenthood’s participation in the illegal profiting from the sale of aborted baby body parts that has resulted in national scandal.
Fox News Host Sean Hannity asked Daleiden, “So we are going to see tape after tape after tape as bad as the two we’ve already seen or worse?”
Daleiden responded, “Exactly. Even worse.”
Daleiden continued, “We did this because Planned Parenthood had been harvesting and selling the body parts from the abortions they commit for decades now and no one has held them accountable. “They held themselves above the law and this is something offensive to the American public, it’s offensive to us and human beings, it violates human dignity and it has to stop.”
The fallout for Planned Parenthood has been staggering to the abortion giant, which was caught off-guard by the videos produced by the Center for Medical Progress in consultation with Operation Rescue.
Defund Planned Parenthood Act Introduced
Yesterday, Rep. Diane Black introduced the “Defund Planned Parenthood Act of 2015” that would place an immediate moratorium on the public funding of Planned Parenthood pending the outcome of three Congressional investigation. Currently, Planned Parenthood receives well over a half-billion dollars of Federal taxpayer money each year. [Watch the video of Rep. Black’s speech.]
“Planned Parenthood has blood on their hands,” said Rep. Black. “But the truth is that Planned Parenthood’s ‘Culture of Depravity’ is much deeper than these couple of videos.”
Bad Publicity Has Planned Parenthood Desperate
Breitbart News is calling this “The Summer of Our Shame” as two undercover videos continue to stun America, revealing Planned Parenthood’s greedy and ghoulish participation in trafficking human organs for profit – sometimes using the banned Partial-Birth Abortion procedure.
Meanwhile, Fox News Senior Political Analyst Brit Hume issued a scathing monologue against Planned Parenthood, noting that the videos, “parted the veil of antiseptic tidiness behind which the abortion industry has so long operated.”
Planned Parenthood has flailed in trying to cope with this scandal. When a weak ‘apology’ video showing Planned Parenthood CEO Cecile Richards failed to defuse the public outrage over their money-grubbing trafficking in human flesh, Planned Parenthood has resorted to demonizing the messenger with brazen ad hominem attacks and smear campaigns.
Punitave DOJ Investigation Sought by Democrats
Yesterday, four Democratic Congressmen sent a letter to U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch and California Attorney General Kamala Harris seeking an investigation into Daleiden and the Center for Medical Progress. (Text of letter)
“Planned Parenthood are using what few lackeys they have left in Congress that haven’t jumped ship yet to launch a punitive investigation to silence the man who uncovered their own illegal conduct. This is nothing more than deflection tactic, which is a thinly veiled attack on our precious Freedom of Speech and Freedom of the Press,” said Operation Rescue President Troy Newman, who also serves as a Board Member for Daleiden’s Center for Medical Progress and advised on the project from its inception. “We continue to call on the Department of Justice to investigate the real criminals – Planned Parenthood.”
More States Investigate Planned Parenthood
This week, more states have launched investigations into Planned Parenthood’s illicit baby body parts trade, bringing the number of state where Planned Parenthood is under investigation to eight, including Georgia, Louisiana, Texas, Ohio, Indiana, Arizona, Missouri, and Kansas.
Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback has asked the Kansas Board of Healing Arts to investigate Planned Parenthood in Overland Park, where the selling of fetal remains for profit was first discovered over 15 years ago through an investigation conducted by Life Dynamics, Inc.
In Missouri, the investigation into Planned Parenthood’s activities was expanded this week in light of the contents of the second video.
While the St. Louis and Overland Park Planned Parenthood abortion facilities deny participation in the baby parts trade, at least one Missouri State Representative, Andrew Koenig, is skeptical.
“It may be, but I’m not going to just take their word on it,” Koenig said.
Meanwhile, sponsors are beginning to distance themselves from Planned Parenthood, which is sure to affect Planned Parenthood’s bottom line.
Corporate Sponsors Distance from Planned Parenthood
Xerox and the Ford Motor Company have asked that their names be removed from Planned Parenthood’s website after they claim they were “erroneously” listed as matching donors, according to the Daily Signal, which also listed 39 companies that do indeed donate to Planned Parenthood.
“It is important to hold the companies that prop up Planned Parenthood accountable for the human tragedy they have inflicted on humanity,” said Newman. “Their contributions enable Planned Parenthood to continue their repugnant butchery of babies and the marketing of their remains as a product that is sold to the highest bidder.”
The Daily Signal‘s list of Planned Parenthood corporate sponsors includes the following businesses:
- American Cancer Society
- American Express
- Bank of America
- Bath & Body Works
- Ben & Jerry’s
- Deutsche Bank
- Fannie Mae
- Johnson & Johnson
- La Senza
- Levi Strauss
- Liberty Mutual
- March of Dimes
- Morgan Stanley
- Susan G. Komen
- United Way
- Wells Fargo
