In October, Planned Parenthood told the New York Times that only two of its health centers nationwide supply “fetal tissue” to researchers – one in California and one in Washington state.
But a new report from the Family Research Council indicates that 20 of the abortion business’s affiliates across the country were involved in harvesting aborted babies’ body parts for researchers in the past five years.
The report, “Investigating Planned Parenthood and Research Using Aborted Babies,” provides a detailed summary of what has been revealed about Planned Parenthood’s aborted baby harvesting practices since the Center for Medical Progress began releasing its undercover videos last summer.
“We are shedding light not just on Planned Parenthood’s appalling business practices, but also on their corporate and academic allies which benefit from baby organ harvesting,” said FRC Center for Human Dignity Director Arina Grossu, who authored the report. “This research is a starting point in the investigation of Planned Parenthood’s activities and the involvement of taxpayer funds.”
The report documents 20 Planned Parenthood affiliates that have participated in aborted baby body harvesting programs in the past five years, as well as the receiving groups. These include abortion affiliates in California, Texas, Colorado, Washington, Michigan, Wisconsin, Washington, D.C., New York, Utah, Oregon and possibly the affiliate in southern New England.
One of the affiliates highlighted in the report is Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast, based in Houston, Texas. The abortion affiliate has been in the spotlight recently after a grand jury, tasked with investigating its aborted baby harvesting program, indicted undercover investigators David Daleiden and Sandra Merritt of the Center for Medical Progressinstead.
The report links to records showing that the Texas abortion group participates in aborted baby body harvesting, evidence that the Texas grand jury appears to have ignored. The report also mentions the abortion group’s connection to the University of Texas Medical Branch, which appears to have bought aborted babies’ body parts from the group,LifeNews reported last week.
In the report are details about the number of Planned Parenthood facilities that perform medical and surgical abortions and how late they do them. Readers also can find information about state abortion limits, the states where investigations have occurred and defunding efforts are taking place, the Congressional investigations and a list of the biotech companies that act as middlemen in the sale of baby parts and some of their consumers.
