Washington– Congressman Mike Conaway (TX-11) issued the following statement after a video surfaced documenting Planned Parenthood’s atrocious practices:
“I am utterly stunned and sick to my stomach by this complete and absolute disregard for human life. Without a hint of shame, one of Planned Parenthood’s doctors vividly described how to dismember a baby in order to ‘harvest’ its body parts for sale. It is horrifying to know that this type of conniving and despicable behavior is not only acceptable at Planned Parenthood, but embraced and encouraged. It has become very clear that the Planned Parenthood Federation of America and their regional chapters nationwide are aware of this behavior despite their half-hearted denials.
“These heinous crimes – and what was described in the video is a crime, no matter what Planned Parenthood’s interpretation is – must not be ignored. The House Judiciary Committee and the House Energy and Commerce Committee have already launched investigations into these atrocities, and I will do everything in my power to make sure the perpetrators of these unconscionable acts are held accountable. Innocent lives are on the line.”
