In a new interview with Fox news, Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine shone more light on the latest Planned Parenthood investigation — the one he spearheaded which caught the abortion business dumping aborted babies in landfills in Kentucky.

Asked to weigh in on the allegations that the claims Planned Parenthood is dumping aborted babies in landfills are false, DeWine said, “It’s rather strange, because Planned Parenthood’s own lawyers told us that’s how they’re disposing of the fetuses.”

The Planned Parenthood abortion business in Ohio whose three clinics were caught illegally dumping aborted babies at landfills has struck back at the very state officials who caught them breaking state law. The abortion company filed a lawsuit against state officials claiming the investigations that resulted in catching the abortion business were politically motivated.

After Planned Parenthood was caught potentially breaking multiple federal laws to sell the body parts of aborted babies, multiple states began investigations of the nation’s largest abortion business. Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine announced the results of his investigation and he indicates the abortion giant appears to be breaking state laws regarding the disposal of the bodies of aborted babies. The abortion business pays to have aborted babies “steam cooked” before dumping them in landfills.

DeWine announced the findings of his investigation into Planned Parenthood’s abortion practice in Ohio — an investigation which began in July. The probe reveals Planned Parenthood appears to be sending the bodies of aborted babies to landfills.

“All three Ohio Planned Parenthood affiliates have sent fetal remains to companies which disposed of the fetuses in landfill,” the investigative report indicates. “Additionally, the Planned Parenthood facility in Bedford Heights stated it uses only one company for disposal. However, that company stated to investigators it does not accept fetal remains for disposal as a corporate policy.”

“Disposing of aborted fetuses from an abortion by sending them to a landfill is callous and completely inhumane,” said Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine. “It is important the public be aware that these practices are taking place at these Ohio facilities.”

The Attorney General argues that this is in violation of Ohio Revised Code (3701-47-05) which requires that aborted fetal remains be disposed humanely.

But a judge has blocked the state from enforcing the law while the lawsuit continues. The judge said Planned Parenthood could suffer “irreparable harm” if the state filed a lawsuit, and the organization stands “some likelihood of success” in prevailing in a court battle.
