Justice Dept. investigating use of fetal issue

Trump’s DOJ opening investigation into Planned Parenthood – here’s why

Trump’s DOJ opening investigation into Planned Parenthood – here’s why

Last month, in response to reports that the FBI had asked the Senate for documents it obtained from abortion providers, Planned Parenthood's vice president of government affairs, Dana Singiser, said: "Planned Parenthood strongly disagrees with the recommendations of the Senate Republican staff to refer this matter to the Justice Department, especially in light of the fact that investigations by three other Congressional committees, and investigations in 13 states including a Grand Jury in Texas, have all shown that Planned Parenthood did nothing wrong".

The Justice Department is moving to investigate Planned Parenthood over the organization's fetal tissue practices, according to a letter sent to the Senate Judiciary Committee on Thursday.

After the controversy over its profiting from fetal tissue harvesting, Planned Parenthood announced that they would no longer be accepting reimbursement for the tissue.

The Hill reported last month that the Federal Bureau of Investigation had asked the Senate for documents it obtained from abortion providers, signaling that agents may be investigating the organization.

In the committee's final report entitled "Human Fetal Tissue Research: Context and Controversy" published in December 2016, Grassley urged the FBI to investigate Planned Parenthood. But Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, and Ranking Member Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., said they must first receive a letter proving the documents would be used for investigative purposes.

"The report documents the failure of the Department of Justice, across multiple administrations, to enforce the law that bans the buying and selling of human fetal tissue", Grassley wrote.

"It also documents substantial evidence suggesting that the specific entities involved in the recent controversy, and/or individuals employed by those entities, may have violated that law", he said.

Both the Senate Judiciary Committee and the House Select Investigative Panel on Infant Lives conducted expansive investigations into Planned Parenthood and its partners in the biomedical procurement industry. I saw it first-hand when I worked for the abortion giant and yet, they still manage to obtain over half a billion dollars a year in our tax dollars.

The stark evidence points to the need for this further Department of Justice investigation to uncover the entire truth about Planned Parenthood's sale of baby body parts. "Congress should immediately halt any money to the abortion giant until the FBI completes their investigation".
