Release of Court Documents Heightens Call for Investigation of Planned Parenthood Says Dr. Alveda King

Priests for Life


Atlanta, GA – Documents released in a Kansas court case, which include what a judge called “evidence of crimes” by Planned Parenthood, require an immediate Congressional investigation of the abortion organization said Dr. Alveda King today.

“It appears from released copies of Planned Parenthood records that the organization performed abortions in violation of Kansas law and that it may have manufactured documents to cover its actions,” said Dr. King, Pastoral Associate of Priests for Life and niece of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. “These revelations are incriminating, but not surprising.”

“This year alone, it’s been revealed that Planned Parenthood is willing to accept donations to abort only black babies, that it’s being sued for overbilling taxpayers in California, and that it may have violated state laws protecting minors from sexual predators. And while all this is happening, Congress is giving Planned Parenthood hundreds of millions of dollars a year,” added Dr. King. “Enough is enough; not only should Planned Parenthood not get another penny from the government, it should be investigated by Congress.”

Priests for Life is the nation's largest Catholic pro-life organization dedicated to ending abortion and euthanasia. For more information, visit
