Defenders of Planned Parenthood are attempting to use the powers of the Federal Government and California to punish their enemy.
Obviously, when we see evidence of trafficking in the organs of killed babies for money and of illegal partial birth abortions, it is time to investigate… the person who provided the evidence of these crimes!
From the website of Congresswoman Jan Schakowsky,
Reps. Jan Schakowsky, Zoe Lofgren, Jerry Nadler, and Yvette Clarke sent a letter to U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch and California Attorney General Kamala Harris on Tuesday requesting an investigation into the Center for Medical Progress and the selectively-edited video of a Planned Parenthood physician that it recently released.
According to press reports, the Center for Medical Progress created a fake limited liability corporation in advance of the meeting it recorded with a Planned Parenthood doctor. The video was captured by actors using fake identification to pose as buyers from that fake human biologics company. This elaborate scheme raises serious questions about whether any federal or state laws were violated in securing the LLC or the personal identification that were part of its execution.
The video was also filmed without the consent of the Planned Parenthood doctor, which may violate California law.
There are other questions about possible coordination between the Center for Medical Progress and Members of Congress who knew about the video weeks in advance of its release.
“This is a new low, even for anti-abortion activists who will stop at nothing in their effort to undermine a woman’s right to choose,” said Schakowsky. “I believe the Center for Medical Progress may have broken the law in developing and executing this unbelievably elaborate and troubling scheme, and all Americans should have concerns about that. I hope that Attoneys General Lynch and Harris will investigate this case.”
“Planned Parenthood is a well-respected and important organization in my community,” saidLofgren. “One in five women in America has gone to Planned Parenthood at some point in their lives. The recent surreptitiously recorded video is the latest iteration of harassment and partisan attacks on Planned Parenthood which have become far too common, and raises serious legal questions that merit an investigation into whether the so-called ‘Center for Medical Process’ has broken the law.”
“Like the millions of women who access their broad-range of health services every day, we trust Planned Parenthood,” said Nadler. “This video is nothing more than a witch hunt – an elaborate, possibly illegal, scheme to attack Planned Parenthood, undermine their life-saving work and deny the Constitutional and moral rights of women across the country. I urge the Department of Justice and the state of California to investigate the Center for Medical Progress and determine if their activities in planning and making these videos violated state and federal laws. We need to stand up to such bullying tactics and ensure that every woman is free to make her own health care decisions.”
“I am deeply concerned about the allegations that federal and state laws were violated in an attempt to attack Planned Parenthood, an organization that provides critical health care services to more than three million men and women each year, and that the attack was coordinated by conservative activists who want to discredit Planned Parenthood and its work,” said Clarke. “I urge Attorney General Loretta Lynch and the Honorable Kamala Harris, Attorney General of California, to initiate a full investigation into this incident to determine if any fraud or other illegal activities were committed.”
Yes, everyone is “deeply concerned.” Planned Parenthood was caught arranging to sell organs for money, talking about putting them into the breach position, and crushing the life out of them carefully in order to make sure there are “intact” livers and lungs to sell. The only evidence that this money was not a profit is Planned Parenthood’s assurances. Because they would be quick to admit they are violating the law if it were true that they were?
So now it is time to use the powers of the police state against the person who exposed them!
