Although the mainstream media has not covered the story of Planned Parenthood harvesting organs that I blogged about yesterday, Bobby Jindal has heard about it. And he is going to knock over some tables and whip some ass.
Breitbart News reports.
Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal announced Tuesday he is directing his state’s Department of Health and Hospitals to launch an investigation into Planned Parenthood. This comes on the heels of the release of an investigative video by pro-life group Center for Medical Progress depicting the abortion giant’s chief medical officer speaking about how to abort a baby intact to harvest its body parts for sale.
“Today’s video of a Planned Parenthood official discussing the systematic harvesting and trafficking of human body parts is shocking and gruesome,” Jindal, a Republican presidential contender, said in a statement sent to Breitbart News.
“This same organization is seeking to open an abortion clinic in New Orleans,” he continued. “I have instructed Louisiana’s Department of Health and Hospitals to conduct an immediate investigation into this alleged evil and illegal activity and to not issue any licenses until this investigation is complete. I am also asking the FBI to assist DHH in investigating this alleged criminal activity by this organization.”
Jindal is the strongest pro-lifer in the Republican primary. And he gets the top spot in this post, because he was the only Republican to take immediate action on it.
Some of the other GOP candidates are upset at Planned Parenthood, as well.
Life News reports:
Now, pro-life Republican presidential hopefuls Rick Perry and Carly Fiorina are both slamming Planned Parenthood over its business of selling aborted baby body parts.
Former Texas Governor Rick Perry released the following statement on the video showing a Planned Parenthood staffer attempting to sell the body parts of aborted children:
“The video showing a Planned Parenthood employee selling the body parts of aborted children is a disturbing reminder of the organization’s penchant for profiting off the tragedy of a destroyed human life. It is because of stories like this that I signed legislation defunding Planned Parenthood in the state of Texas – to protect human life and the health and safety of Texans.”
And pro-life businesswoman Carly Fiorina responded as well:
“I am proudly pro-life. I believe that every human life has potential and that every human life is precious. This latest news is tragic and outrageous. This isn’t about “choice.” It’s about profiting on the death of the unborn while telling women it’s about empowerment.”
Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal, also a Republican candidate for president, has opened a state investigation into Planned Parenthood.
Senator Ted Cruz, another pro-life presidential candidate, has also issued a statement calling for Congress to launch an investigation.
“Today’s news regarding allegations that Planned Parenthood is possibly selling the body parts of the babies it has aborted is sickening.
“There is no place for taxpayer funding of organizations that profit from taking away innocent life, much less profiting off the bodies of the lives they have stolen. Congress should immediately begin an investigation of Planned Parenthood’s activities regarding the sale and transfer of aborted body parts, including who is obtaining them and what they are being used for. And it should renew efforts to fully defund Planned Parenthood to ensure that its morally bankrupt business receives not one penny of taxpayer money.
“I proudly stand on the side of life and remain committed to fighting for all innocent life to be valued and protected under the laws of this nation.”
Meanwhile, governor Scott Walker had this to say, and this was reported by The Hill:
Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker on Tuesday called a video purportedly showing a top Planned Parenthood executive discussing the transfer of aborted fetal tissue “absolutely horrifying and disgusting.”
“Planned Parenthood and the Democrats who vote to fund this organization owe the American people an explanation for these heinous, and possibly illegal, actions,” the 2016 Republican presidential candidate said, according to BuzzFeed.
“Practices like this cannot be tolerated, which is why as governor, I defunded Planned Parenthood,” Walker added.
Scott Walker did indeed defund Planned Parenthood in his state, and he is not even in a red state – Wisconsin is a blue state. I like that two of the people running for president actually defunded Planned Parenthood in their states (Walker and Perry).
Finally, Texas Governor Greg Abbott has also launched an investigation of Planned Parenthood in his state.
