NEW YORK -- Father Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life and author of Abolishing Abortion, released the following statement today regarding the latest undercover video focusing on the sale of baby body parts:
“The ninth undercover video of Planned Parenthood released by our colleagues at the Center for Medical Progress shows the tight financial relationship between abortion clinics and companies that buy the body parts of the babies killed there. This video focuses on the oldest such company, Advanced Bioscience Resources, Inc. (ABR) and its relationship with Planned Parenthood Pacific Southwest. The interviews clearly attest to how the procurement companies pay the clinics, and how the sharing of personnel cements the relationship between the clinics and the procurement companies.
“The bottom line is simple. To deny the fact that Planned Parenthood sells body parts, alters the abortion procedure to do so, and is involved in this illegal activity at the highest corporate level, is now tantamount to asserting that the Earth is flat. The facts are not only in these videos, but also in the letter that Cecile Richards, President of Planned Parenthood, wrote to Congress on August 27
“As Congress convenes again next week, Priests for Life, and numerous other national and local pro-life organizations, will press our elected officials to do their job and investigate Planned Parenthood and hold the organization accountable for its actions.”
