MRL Welcomes State Investigations of Planned Parenthood
As we reported in our last edition of the Missouri Lifeline, video evidence has been released proving that Planned Parenthood not only kills thousands of unborn babies each year in abortion, they also sell the organs and other tissue of these tiny victims.
This week, a second video recorded and released by the Center for Medical Progress, shows further evidence that Planned Parenthood methodically preserves through their abortion procedures the organs and tissue of unborn babies and offers those organs and tissue to medical research companies.
With the mention in the first video of the abortion facility in St. Louis, a number of state and federal Missouri lawmakers are calling for a full investigation of the Planned Parenthood abortion business here in our state.
"Missouri Right to Life welcomes the investigations that have been proposed by our elected officials. Planned Parenthood in other parts of the country has been investigated over the years for other illegal practices including the failure to report statutory rape and misuse of government funds," said Steve Rupp, President of Missouri Right to Life.
"We have proposed an abortion facility inspection bill in the Missouri legislature for the past two legislative sessions. It is time to provide investigation and oversight of this huge corporation that enjoys the benefit of our tax dollars to carry out some of their reprehensible activities. In addition to these much needed investigations, we call upon the Missouri legislature and statewide officials to support and pass the abortion facility inspection bill," Rupp concluded.

National Right to Life also responded to the videos here and here.
