A congressional panel has released findings saying Planned Parenthood should be stripped of its federal funding, based on evidence that Planned Parenthood sold organs and tissue harvested from aborted babies.
John Stonestreet at the Colson Center for Christian Worldview writes,
As a result of the revelations, the Panel, chaired by Representative Marsha Blackburn of Tennessee, held hearings and put the nation’s largest abortion provider under a long-overdue microscope. What they found wasn’t pretty, to say the least.
The least troubling was a pattern of over-billing Medicaid and other healthcare funding programs to the tune of $132 million dollars.
More serious and far more troubling is Planned Parenthood’s disregard for the National Organ Transplant Act. The Act provides that “[i]t shall be unlawful for any person to knowingly acquire, receive, or otherwise transfer any human organ for valuable consideration for use in human transplantation if the transfer affects interstate commerce.”
