DeWine announced the findings of his investigation into Planned Parenthood’s abortion practice in Ohio — an investigation which began in July. The probe reveals Planned Parenthood appears to be sending the bodies of aborted babies to landfills.
The Attorney General argues that this is in violation of Ohio Revised Code (3701-47-05) which requires that aborted fetal remains be disposed humanely.
Responding to the findings int he investigative report, pro-life Ohio Governor John Kasich said he is directing the state health department to take action.
“The attorney general has done thorough work and his findings are disturbing. I’ve asked the Ohio Department of Health to work with the attorney general to take appropriate legal action. This investigation shows the need for further work with the Ohio General Assembly to reign in Planned Parenthood, while continuing to ensure access to vital health care services for women,” he said.
The state’s leading pro-life group is very concerned about Planned Parenthood’s potential law-breaking actions and inhuman treatment of babies killed in abortions.
“We are disturbed and heartsick over the Attorney General’s findings,” said Mike Gonidakis, president of Ohio Right to Life, told LifeNews. “The visual of Planned Parenthood carting volumes of children’s remains to a landfill speaks to their callous disregard for human life. It is a grotesque portrait of their urgent need to dispose of their victims along with the truth.”
Ohio Right to Life joins Attorney General DeWine in calling on the Ohio General Assembly to pass legislation to ensure that the aborted remains of babies are treated humanely, Gonidakis said. He indicated the pro-life organization is currently working with Representative Robert McColley (R-Napoleon), Representative Kyle Koehler (R-Springfield), and Senator Joe Uecker (R-Miami Township) to introduce such legislation. This bill would limit the number of options available to abortionists to humane burial and cremation; increase informed consent by requiring full disclosure to women pursuing abortions of the abortionist’s intent for disposing of the aborted baby; and set a penalty for the violation of the statute as a first degree misdemeanor.
