Criminal Investigation into Planned Parenthood Harvesting Baby Body Parts Unlikely from Obama Justice Department

July 14, 2015
Press Release

WASHINGTON, D.C. - As details emerged of Planned Parenthood selling body parts of aborted babies in a recently published investigative video, Congressman Franks, Prime Sponsor of the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act released the following statement:

"The chilling video released today is yet another tragic and heart-breaking reminder of Planned Parenthood’s legendary disregard for the sanctity of innocent human life. The trafficking of the little hearts, livers and heads of these precious unborn children resulted in significant financial benefit for Planned Parenthood, the largest abortion provider in the country.

"Planned Parenthood must be held responsible for the horrifying use of partial-birth abortions to deliberately harvest the intact the body parts of innocent human children. It is an unspeakable disgrace that the Obama Justice Department will likely never launch a criminal investigation to look into these unconscionable acts that were clearly covered up by Planned Parenthood - from the CEO, Cecile Richards, down to the workers at the clinics who performed these gruesome acts. If our government and the American people look the other way from this kind of insidious evil, we do so at our moral peril."
