Washington, D.C.: American Life League president Judie Brown released a statement in support of the Center for Medical Progress as evidence has surfaced regarding alleged fraudulent practice on the part of Planned Parenthood. The alleged fraud is related to obtaining required consent from mothers for use of their child's body parts and tissue for experimentation. Dr. Lawrence Goldstein, who procured and used aborted baby brains and other organs supplied by Planned Parenthood provided the damning testimony in front of the Select Investigative Panel on Infant Lives.
Judie Brown commented:
As evidenced in the newly released transcript and video from the Center for Medical Progress, Planned Parenthood continues its fraudulent ways. It deceives expectant mothers with lies denying the humanity of their preborn children; it deceives the public by denying it is in the business of selling aborted baby body parts; it deceives unsuspecting adolescents by marketing birth control as the panacea for sex outside of marriage without risks.
Isn't it time to stop the lies? Isn't it time to hold Cecile Richards and her mob of frauds up to the public light of ongoing investigations that get to the root of the problems they are creating with their ongoing campaign of lies? Frauds indeed!
And sadly we are paying them to do it with our tax dollars. Shame on us!
