The following comes from an October 13 Operation Rescue press release:
Washington, D.C. – In a move borne out of desperation, Planned Parenthood CEO Cecile Richards has announced that effective immediately, Planned Parenthood affiliates will no longer accept (money in exchange for aborted baby body parts.
“Planned Parenthood has been caught with their bloody hands in the cash register. They are now trying to back-track their criminal conduct while making attacking the investigators. This will not work,” said Operation Rescue President Troy Newman, who also serves on the board of the Center for Medical Progress, which released videos that revealed Planned Parenthood’s participation in the illegal trafficking of aborted baby remains.
“The [Center for Medical Progress] videos exposed the fact that every cent PP received in so-called ‘reimbursement’ was in fact profit,” Newman continued. “It is now abundantly clear that Planned Parenthood has been violating federal law that prohibits the profiting from fetal cadavers. Now more than ever, we must press for full scale prosecutions, and jail for all the abortionists involved.”
