The Center for Medical Progress has released a new video exposing the Planned Parenthood abortion business. This new video exposes how planned Parenthood has been caught lying about the consent form it presents women to consider donating the body parts of their aborted babies for research. The consent form falsely claims body parts of aborted unborn children have been used to successfully cure diseases.
The Select Investigative Panel on Infant Lives recently held its first hearing on March 2 to examine the bioethics of fetal tissue harvesting and experimentation. The hearing included a review of the patient consent form used by Planned Parenthood to get permission to harvest aborted baby parts.
The Planned Parenthood form promises pregnant women considering abortion that aborted fetal tissue “has been used to treat and find a cure for such diseases as diabetes, Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease, cancer, and AIDS.” No cures for these diseases are currently available, and no current therapies for them use aborted fetal tissue.
SIGN THE PETITION! Congress Must De-Fund Planned Parenthood Immediately
As LifeNews previously reported, at the hearing, Dr. Lawrence Goldstein, a scientist from the University of California at San Diego, was called by the Panel’s minority to testify in support of Planned Parenthood’s fetal tissue harvesting. The star witness for Planned Parenthood misled Congress about his own research involving the brains of aborted babies.
Goldstein failed to mention to Congress that he obtains the brains of aborted babies from unborn children killed in abortions at Planned Parenthood and failed to tell the Congressional panel conducting the hearing that he is a Planned Parenthood donor with a long relationship with the abortion company.
