After seven videos showing Planned Parenthood selling aborted babies and their body parts — and going as far as dissecting a live “aborted” baby — the abortion company has apparently had enough and is threatening to sue the pro-life organization behind the videos.
Just two days after Planned Parenthood was exposed cutting up a live baby for body parts for sale, the abortion corporation is considering legal action. In an exclusive interview with The Hill, Planned Parenthood Executive Vice President Dawn Laguens said she believes the videos are illegal and she told the Congressional newspaper that her group is “considering everything” to respond to them — including suing.
“I absolutely do believe that they have violated laws in terms of how they secured these videos,” she said in an interview at the group’s Washington, D.C., headquarters. “But the fraud is also in how they have presented them and in the editing.”
“We are considering everything,” she said. “I’m not a lawyer — but everything is on the table when you look at these videos and the fraud and the conspiracy behind it.”
She called on the video creators to submit “all of the videos and the source footage unedited, and they would hand it to Congress and law enforcement” instead of having to “splice it together in all sorts of crazy ways in order to tell a political story.”
The abortion business vice president also slammed Congressional Republicans for their vote in the Senate to de-fund Planned Parenthood — which Senate Democrats blocked with only a few votes to spare. Almost every one of the pro-life Republican presidential candidates has vociferously supported de-funding Planned Parenthood in the wake of the controversy.
“The Republican presidential candidates are completely out of step with the American people,” she said.Asked point-blank whether the group would still receive federal funds after the fall, she answered confidently: “Yes.”“I certainly believe that [we’ll be funded], because I believe the American people are speaking — and our patients, the one-in-five women who rely on Planned Parenthood over their lifetime — are [speaking to lawmakers],” she said.
Meanwhile, two committees in the House of Representatives have already launched investigations of Planned Parenthood. One committee is looking into whether or not the abortion business is breaking federal law by altering abortion procedures to better obtain aborted baby body parts for sale. Another committee, among other things, is investigating the Obama administration and whether there is any connection between it and the abortion giant.
The House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform was to know if the Obama administration, via the Department of Health and Human Services, provided any federal grants to Planned Parenthood that ultimately went to pay for the sales of aborted baby body parts and if they were used by Planned Parenthood to “support transactions involving fetal tissue.”
The expose’ videos catching Planned Parenthood officials selling the body parts of aborted babies have shocked the nation.
As LifeNews reported, the first video of undercover footage 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, Planned Parenthood doctor Mary Gatter discusses the pricing of aborted baby body parts — telling the biotech company officials that the prices for such things as a baby’s liver, head or heart are negotiable. She also tells the officials that she could talk with the Planned Parenthood abortion practitioners to potentially alter the abortion procedure to kill the baby in a way that would best preserve those body parts after the unborn child is killed in the abortion.
So far, 12 states have responded to the Planned Parenthood videos and launched investigations into their abortion and organ harvesting business including South Carolina, Florida, Tennessee, Massachusetts, Kansas, Missouri, Arizona, Indiana, Ohio, Georgia, Texas and Louisiana. The district attorney in Houston Texas is also investigating after the Houston-based Planned Parenthood abortion facility was caught selling aborted babies.
Congress has expanded its investigation into the Planned Parenthood abortion business and five states have revoked taxpayer funding for Planned Parenthood’s abortion business, including Utah, Arkansas, Alabama, New Hampshire and Louisiana and Iowa’s governor has ordered a review of Planned Parenthood funding.
The full, unedited videos have confirmed that revelations that some aborted baby remains sold by Planned Parenthood go to biotech companies for the purpose of creating “humanized” mice. Meanwhile, Planned Parenthood has been exposed as having sold body parts from aborted babies for as much as 15 years.
The federal law that technically prohibits the sale of aborted babies and their body parts was written by a pro-abortion Congressman decades ago and essentially spells out a process by which sellers of aborted baby body parts can meet certain criteria that allows the sales to be legal. That’s why a Colorado congressman has introduced legislation to totally ban the sales of aborted baby body parts.
