After an investigation, the House Select Panel on Infant Lives has released a list of nine criminal and regulatory referrals against abortion providers and fetal tissue procurement companies.
According to LifeNews.com, the release of the list comes after an investigation into the alleged practice of selling aborted baby parts at a profit.
The Select Panel started its investigation in October 2015 after undercover videos surfaced from the Center for Medical Progress. The videos showed Planned Parenthood officials working to get the best price for aborted baby organs and tissue to be sold to an organ procurement business.
David Daleiden of the Center for Medical Progress said he hopes that, through the panel’s investigation, Planned Parenthood is “brought to justice.”
“The Select Panel … findings confirm the criminal activity at Planned Parenthood that CMP’s videos documented and show that the wrongdoing goes even deeper than anyone first suspected,” he said. “The Panel has also criminally referred Planned Parenthood’s closest business partners in the sale of aborted baby parts to various state and local law enforcement.
“Law enforcement and elected representatives at all levels must now act quickly to bring Planned Parenthood to justice under the law and prevent any more taxpayer subsidies from flowing to Planned Parenthood’s barbaric criminal enterprise.”
Among the nine criminal and regulatory referrals were: The University of New Mexico for receiving tissue from a late-term abortion facility; StemExpress for profiting from the sale of aborted baby remains; StemExpress and other clinics for violating patient privacy rights; an Ohio university for trafficking aborted baby remains; and Planned Parenthood of Gulf Coast for selling aborted baby remains for profit to the University of Texas.
