WASHINGTON, D.C., December 23, 2015 (LifeSiteNews) – The Obama Administration is refusing to investigate Planned Parenthood, despite the fact that the nation's largest abortion business has been outed as the leading illegal trafficker of human baby parts for profit.
Obama's Department of Health and Human Services Office of Inspector General (IG) Daniel R. Levinson wrote in a letter to concerned legislators that he will not investigate the abortion business, but will look broadly into the laws regarding fetal tissue research.
Specifically, the Inspector General's office said it would review the National Institutes of Health fetal tissue research grants to make sure they are compliant with the existing legislation.
Earlier this summer, the Center for Medical Progress (CMP) released a series of undercover videos exposing Planned Parenthood officials’ practice of selling aborted baby organs for profit.
After a House investigation, Republicans and prolife groups urged Congress to defund Planned Parenthood. Senator and Presidential candidate Rand Paul, however, merely asked Levinson to look into the laws regulating fetal tissue research.
In fact, rather than investigate Planned Parenthood, the Obama Department of Justice announced in July it will “look into” the group whose videos exposed Planned Parenthood’s selling aborted babies’ body parts.
U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch agreed to “review” and California Attorney General Kamala Harris will investigate the Center for Medical Progress, after four Democrats requested the whistleblower be prosecuted for making undercover videos using “fake identification” and without the approval of the Planned Parenthood doctors and officials.
In one CMP undercover video, a Planned Parenthood abortionist casually shares how good she has gotten at “crushing” the living baby above and below the desired “heart, lung, liver,” in order to get the organs “intact.”
Another undercover video shows a Planned Parenthood abortionist explaining she wants to get the highest price for aborted baby organs, because, “I want a Lamborghini.”
“We don’t want to do just a flat-fee of like, $200 (per baby). A per-item thing works a little better, just because we can see how much we can get out of it,” a Planned Parenthood abortionist admits in another CMP video.
A Planned Parenthood official boasts on video of her organization’s skill in obtaining “intact fetal cadavers,” and states that the sale of aborted babies “contributes so much to the bottom line of our organization.”
The CMP videos reveal that Planned Parenthood does not always receive patient consent. Abortionists “would just take what they wanted. And these mothers don’t know. And there’s no way they would know.”
One late-term baby’s heart is still beating. “‘You want to see something kind of cool?,’” a Planned Parenthood official says her supervisor asked her. “And she just taps the heart, and it starts beating. And I’m sitting here and I’m looking at this fetus, and its heart is beating, and I don’t know what to think.”
One of the research companies that buys aborted babies for experimentation admits in a CMP undercover video that Planned Parenthood sells “a lot” of fully intact aborted children.
Another video shows Planned Parenthood officials admitting they break the law by selling aborted baby organs, including hearts, eyes, and “gonads,” for profit.
Planned Parenthood abortionists admit on video to selling intact heads of aborted babies, using an illegal procedure to abort late-term babies alive, so as to procure the entire head for brain harvesting.
Some aborted babies sold by Planned Parenthood go to biotech companies that use the children to create “humanized” mice.
It is illegal to modify abortion procedures to procure baby parts.
