. . . Hours After Created Equal Visits Speaker's Office
Mark Harrington, National Director
Columbus, OH – July 15, 2015 – This morning, Created Equal's team of more than 60 students from across the country joined a coalition outside US Speaker of the House John Boehner's office. We called for an investigation into Planned Parenthood following the shocking release of footage from The Center for Medical Progress yesterday revealing Planned Parenthood's sale of body parts from aborted babies. Two hours later, we received word that Speaker Boehner has called for such an investigation!

Pat Mahoney, OB-GYN Christina Francis, and more. We made a public appeal for an investigation and insisted federal funding be stripped from Planned Parenthood.
Human fetuses may be younger than born humans, but age is irrelevant to human value. It is wrong to kill them. And it is wrong to profit off of their body parts. They are not for sale.
Mark Harrington, Created Equal's National Director said, "These grisly revelations of Planned Parenthood's baby parts business has made ending tax funding even more urgent. Americans are outraged. We are grateful for Speaker Boehner's announcement and call on Congress to follow through to end the madness once and for all!"
