Planned Parenthood Caught Lying: Falsely Said Aborted Baby Parts Cure Diseases

The Center for Medical Progress has released a new video exposing the Planned Parenthood abortion business. This new video exposes how planned Parenthood has been caught lying about the consent form it presents women to consider donating the body parts of their aborted babies for research. The consent form falsely claims body parts of aborted unborn children have been used to successfully cure diseases.

The Select Investigative Panel on Infant Lives recently held its first hearing on March 2 to examine the bioethics of fetal tissue harvesting and experimentation. The hearing included a review of the patient consent form used by Planned Parenthood to get permission to harvest aborted baby parts.

The Planned Parenthood form promises pregnant women considering abortion that aborted fetal tissue “has been used to treat and find a cure for such diseases as diabetes, Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease, cancer, and AIDS.” No cures for these diseases are currently available, and no current therapies for them use aborted fetal tissue.

SIGN THE PETITION! Congress Must De-Fund Planned Parenthood Immediately

As LifeNews previously reported, at the hearing, Dr. Lawrence Goldstein, a scientist from the University of California at San Diego, was called by the Panel’s minority to testify in support of Planned Parenthood’s fetal tissue harvesting. The star witness for Planned Parenthood misled Congress about his own research involving the brains of aborted babies.

Goldstein failed to mention to Congress that he obtains the brains of aborted babies from unborn children killed in abortions at Planned Parenthood and failed to tell the Congressional panel conducting the hearing that he is a Planned Parenthood donor with a long relationship with the abortion company.

But one thing Goldstein did say exposes the fraud Planned Parenthood in engaging in when it comes to women donating parts from their aborted children.

Under oath, Dr. Goldstein replied to a question from Planned Parenthood supporter Bonnie Watson Coleman (D-NJ) this way:

Watson Coleman: Do you believe that anything on that form is creating an undue hardship or intimidation or misrepresentation to women who are being asked to consider whether they will donate this tissue?

Goldstein: If it’s the form that says, therapies for diseases such as Alzheimer’s and all the rest have already been found, I agree, that’s an inappropriate statement that should not have been made on that form. I don’t know who wrote it, that would not have made it past my IRB [Institutional Review Board] either.

The Planned Parenthood fetal harvesting consent form is authored by Planned Parenthood Federation of America and provided to affiliates in its Manual of Medical Standards and Guidelines.

“Planned Parenthood’s baby parts trafficking scheme cannot stand up to independent scrutiny. When a Planned Parenthood supporter and baby parts customer admits under oath that Planned Parenthood has been fraudulently inducing patient consent, it discredits all of Planned Parenthood’s assurances that their baby parts scheme has operated legally and above-board,” notes David Daleiden of the Center for Medical Progress. “Law enforcement in Planned Parenthood-friendly jurisdictions should stop wasting taxpayer resources to assist Planned Parenthood in harassing citizen journalists, and should stop ignoring the evidence of real fraud, baby body parts trafficking, and criminal abortion practices right in their own backyard.”
