Houston, Texas- A Texas Planned Parenthood affiliate has admitted that they are most likely the subject of a forthcoming undercover video from the Center for Medical Progress. Two incriminating videos have already been released detailing unethical behavior on the West coast, and likely across the nation. The highly-publicized videos capture top Planned Parenthood abortionists discussing the methods used to harvest “intact” tissue from aborted preborn children and the terms of sale of those body parts. At least one Texas Planned Parenthood affiliate admits to being involved in “fetal tissue procurement.”
Tissue donation for medical research is permitted by federal and state law. However, there is now evidence that Planned Parenthood broke both state and federal laws in their well-documented quest to turn fetal body part harvesting into a moneymaking venture—which is unequivocally illegal on both state and federal levels. This is not the first time Planned Parenthood has usurped laws to pad their coffers, and there is no reason to believe that this will be their last. In addition to suspected profiteering from the procurement and sale of fetal body parts, Planned Parenthood has committed Medicaid fraud more than once in the state of Texas – to the tune of tens of millions of dollars.
In Texas and across the country, Planned Parenthood has been caught in the act of breaking the law by hiding statutory rape, over billing taxpayers, aiding and abetting sex traffickers, scheduling sex-selective abortions, and accepting money to abort African American children. Texas has led the nation in decrying Planned Parenthood’s heinous slaughter of the preborn and the sale of their body parts, and Texas will not back down from these allegations until every affiliate in the state has been thoroughly investigated.
In light of recent revelations, Texas Right to Life is urging Texas leaders to call for an immediate suspension of all remaining taxpayer funding of the abortion giant. Planned Parenthood must also be ordered to cease engaging in fetal body part harvesting until all of the Center for Medical Progress’ videos have been examined and Texas has completed an in-depth investigation into this stomach-turning facet of Planned Parenthood’s business model. Texas Right to Life will continue to do everything we can to protect YOUR tax dollars from padding the coffers of the wine-swilling butchers of Planned Parenthood.
Texas Right to Life, along with Texas Eagle Forum and Concerned Women of America, will hold a press conference following the Texas Senate Health and Human Services Committee hearing on Wednesday, July 29, in Austin. The press conference will begin ten minutes after the conclusion of the HHS Committee hearing and will be held in the Lt. Governor’s press room outside the Senate gallery.
