Following the unveiling of a second video exposing a to Planned Parenthood doctor negotiating and arranging the sale of body parts from babies killed in abortions, Speaker John Boehner demanded that President Barack Obama denounce its activities.
The first video shows Planned Parenthood Federation of America’s Senior Director of Medical Services, Dr. Deborah Nucatola, describing how Planned Parenthood sells the body parts of aborted unborn children and admitting she uses partial-birth abortions to supply intact body parts.
In the second video, Mary Gatter, the Medical director at Planned Parenthood Pasadena and San Gabriel Valley in Calfiornia, discusses selling aborted baby body parts with undercover investigators posing as officials with a biotech company that acts as a middleman to sell aborted baby body parts to universities and other places that conduct such research. Gatter is a senior official within Planned Parenthood and is President of the Medical Directors’ Council, the central committee of all Planned Parenthood affiliate medical directors.
Responding to the videos, Boehner said Obama has a moral obligation to speak out against the practice of selling aborted babies.
“President Obama still has not denounced these horrific practices. He has a responsibility to also speak out immediately and stop these practices now,” he said in a statement LifeNews.com obtained.
Rather than denouncing the sale of aborted baby body parts, Obama’s top spokesman confirmed yesterday that President Obama will not de-fund the Planned Parenthood abortion business.
In his statement today, Boehner recalled the Congressional investigation the House of Representatives started after the first video and promised it would continue.
“This new video is as sickening, disturbing and callous as the last video. It’s now clear that Planned Parenthood allows this horrifying conduct to happen throughout its organization. Last week, I called on Congress to investigate these gruesome practices. The Energy & Commerce and Judiciary Committees have begun immediate investigations and I look forward to their prompt and thorough action,” he said.
After the first video was released, Boehner had the same reaction to a video of Planned Parenthood’s top doctor discussing how it sells the body parts of aborted babies as millions of Americans did. He called it disgusting and said talking about the video made him want to vomit.
“Also this week, at my request, our committees have begun looking at some of the gruesome practices embraced by Planned Parenthood. I’m also demanding that the president denounce – and stop – these practices.
“If you’ve seen this video, I don’t have to tell you how sickening it is. So rest assured that we’re going to get to the bottom of this, [and] protect the values that we hold dear. …
“I want the committees to do their investigation. I want them to do their hearings. And, once they have, then we’ll decide what’s the proper course of action. …
“I could talk about the video, but I think I’d vomit trying to talk about it. It’s disgusting.”
