Videos released this summer allegedly show Planned Parenthood employees discussing the sale of fetal tissue for medical research.
The Democrat said interviews and documentation from his office’s investigation show that tissue from the more than 300 surgical abortions performed at the St. Louis Planned Parenthood in June was properly incinerated. The group says it follows all laws, regulations and ethical guidelines in handling donated fetal tissue. “We will do everything in our power today to verify our compliance with all state laws and regulations”. But a few House Democrats have called for Attorney General Loretta Lynch to similarly investigate the group.
“I think the pro-life groups have to regroup and figure a new way to defund Planned Parenthood which needs to happen”, said Grossu. Officials in other states also have launched investigations.
Moreover, Bush signaled his disapproval of the tactic, promoted by a few Congressional Republicans, of shutting down the federal government unless a forthcoming spending bill strips funding for Planned Parenthood. “The discontinued funding is very limited in scope, and we will continue to work with the Utah Department of Health and other local health providers to ensure Utahns maintain access to these important services“.

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. Planned Parenthood must pay a $7,500 penalty.
Despite all the proof that Planned Parenthood’s main focus is abortion, they want Congress to believe that if they remove tax dollars from the abortion business, women’s health services will be hurt.
“No one talks. People are looking down in the waiting room” at these offices waiting for an abortion, she says.
She explains that tomorrow’s event is part of ongoing response to this tactic, as well as an opportunity to point out the ways the organization provides critical health services to more than 90,000 women and men in Arizona every year.
