One of the sources of everlasting shame to this nation is not the horror of abortion, per se, but the extent to which federal and state governments have not only funded the abortionists but turned a blind eye to outrageous practices that lead to the deaths of millions of infants and hundreds of women. The turning point might very well have been the videos by David Deleiden and his Center for Medical Progress which succeed in documenting the brutal, callous, and inhuman nature of the people who are a part of the abortion industry. In fact, if there were truly justice in this nation we’d be holding the biggest trial since Nuremberg to render judgement on these animals. Based on the CMP videos, Congress empaneled the House Select Panel on Infant Lives chaired by Tennessee Congresswoman Marsha Blackburn. Today they released their first report.
The House Select Panel on Infant Lives has released a list of nine criminal and regulatory referrals against abortion providers and/or fetal tissue procurement companies made as a result of their investigation into the illegal practice of selling aborted baby remains for profit.
According to a fact sheet released by the Select Panel, the nine criminal and regulatory referrals include:
1. The University of New Mexico was found to have violated their state’s Anatomical Gift Act by receiving tissue from a late-term abortion facility, Southwestern Women’s Options in Albuquerque, NM. The matter was referred to the New Mexico Attorney General for further investigation and prosecution.
2. After conducting a forensic analysis of the limited financial data submitted by StemExpress, the Select Panel found that it was violating federal law by profiting from the sale of aborted baby remains. Referrals were sent to the El Dorado, CA District Attorney and the U.S. Department of Justice.
3. The Panel’s investigation revealed that StemExpress and “certain abortion clinics” were violating patient privacy rights under HIPAA for financial gain. A referral was made to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
4. It was discovered that an abortion facility in Arkansas violated the law by selling aborted baby remains to StemExpress for profit. A referral was made to the Arkansas District Attorney.
5. The Panel uncovered evidence that a university in Ohio was violating state law by trafficking in aborted baby remains. An oral referral was made to the Ohio Attorney General.
6. DV Biologics, a tissue procurement company, was found to have been illegally trafficking aborted baby remains for profit and had failed to collect California sales taxes. The Orange County District Attorney has sued and the Select Panel made a supplemental referral. (Operation Rescue uncovered a quid pro quo relationship between the owners of DV Biologics and former presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, who granted special favors to them.)
7. It was discovered that Planned Parenthood of Gulf Coast broke the law when it sold aborted baby remains for profit to the University of Texas. Operation Rescue’s Texas attorney, Briscoe Cain, received evidence of this illegal conduct through a FOIA request and referred the evidence on to investigators. The Select Panel referred the case to the Texas Attorney General.
8. Advanced Bioscience Resources was found to have profited from the sale of aborted baby remains to “various universities.” A referral was made to the Riverside, CA District Attorney.
9. The Panel’s investigation discovered that Presidential Women’s Center in West Palm Beach, Florida, violated the federal and state law though their relationship with StemExpress, which allowed it to illegally profit from the sale of aborted baby remains. The matter was referred to the Florida Attorney General.
Earlier this month, the House voted to double the panel’s budget to allow it to more vigorously investigate abuses in the abortion industry.
House Republicans have doubled the budget for a special panel investigating the medical procedures and business practices of abortion providers.
Over the objection of Democrats, the House Committee on Administration voted Wednesday to approve an additional $800,000 for the Select Investigative Panel on Infant Lives. The money is in addition to the panel’s previously approved $790,000 budget and puts it on track to spend more than $1.5 million by the end of the year.
This is nothing but good news. More money gives the panel more of an opportunity to turn up the heat on this monstrous business.
