Father Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, is calling on Americans and their religious leaders to pay close attention today, and in the coming weeks, to the new evidence that Planned Parenthood is involved in the selling of the body parts of the babies killed by the abortions it provides.
"I have been involved for decades in the effort to expose the evidence that the abortion industry sells the body parts of the babies it kills," Fr. Pavone stated, "and I welcome this new evidence provided by David Daleiden and the Center for Medical Progress. The undercover videos and documentation, which have begun to be publicized today, show how people at the highest levels of Planned Parenthood are negotiating the sale of body parts, and adjusting the way they perform abortions so that the body parts are more accessible. This violates both the law and the most basic sense of human decency."
Fr. Pavone collaborates closely with Mark Crutcher of Life Dynamics, who first exposed the sale of baby body parts some 15 years ago, and with Troy Newman of Operation Rescue, who has exposed many criminal activities that occur in abortion clinics.
"We have on our website, BabyBodyParts.com, the images of some of the order forms that were discovered back then -- forms that ask that eyes, livers, brains, legs and other body parts be shipped on wet ice to the researchers who want them," Fr. Pavone explained.
"This activity violates state and federal laws that prohibit the sale of human body parts. Moreover, this new evidence shows that Planned Parenthood is still using the partial-birth abortion procedure, which has also been banned by law at the state and federal level.
"We therefore call on Congress to investigate this activity and to stop federal funding of Planned Parenthood. Moreover, we call on the United States Senate to vote on and pass the Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, which will protect many of the babies whose bodies are being cut up and sold in this manner," Fr. Pavone said.
Priests for Life has set up an action alert urging citizens to call their representatives in Congress to do something about these revelations. Keep informed of this and more at www.BabyBodyParts.com and www.CenterForMedicalProgress.org.
