The Center for Medical Progress’ unsettling undercover videos revealed Planned Parenthood executives coldly talking about harvesting organs and attempting to sell body parts from aborted babies. The videos completely exposed the criminal underbelly of the abortion industry and Planned Parenthood’s despicable trafficking of aborted babies’ body parts.
Representative Marsha Blackburn chaired the House Select Investigative Panel on Infant Lives. The Senate Judiciary Committee, chaired by Senator Charles Grassley, launched a separate investigation.
Both investigative bodies found enough evidence that criminal acts had taken place and called on the FBI to examine their findings. As submitted in a letter to then Attorney General Loretta Lynch and FBI Director James Comey, the congressional committees referred “several Planned Parenthood affiliates and companies involved in fetal tissue transfers, as well as the Planned Parenthood Federation of America, to the FBI and the Department of Justice (DOJ) for investigation and possible prosecution.”
Plus, in an unexpected disclosure, the congressional reports called out the DOJ for “failure of the Department of Justice, across multiple administrations, to enforce the law that bans the buying or selling of human fetal tissue (42 U.S.C. § 289g-2) with even a single prosecution. It also documents substantial evidence suggesting that the specific entities involved in the recent controversy, and/or individuals employed by those entities, may have violated that law.”
The Obama administration’s Justice Department not only ignored Congress’ requests for an investigation, they were shamefully negligent in enforcing the law.
Now, Senator Grassley has relaunched his request for an FBI investigation, this time sending the request to a compliant Department of Justice under the leadership of Attorney General Jeff Sessions and to Acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe.
+ + We are calling on the Department of Justice/FBI to Investigate Planned Parenthood!
Liberty Counsel is joining with the Senate Judiciary Committee and the U.S. House Select Panel on Infant Lives in recommending that the FBI investigate and potentially file criminal charges against Planned Parenthood and affiliated organizations regarding their trade in aborted fetal body parts for profit.
It will take many outraged grassroots citizens and insistence from Congress to place enough pressure on the FBI to investigate Planned Parenthood. Planned Parenthood is a powerful organization with a strong presence on Capitol Hill — and they have the support of the pro-abortion industry lobbyists, academic elites, the ACLU, and the media. That’s why we are rallying pro-life Americans from all over the nation to join in this vital effort.
Yours for true Liberty,
Mat Staver, Founder and Chairman,

The Honorable Charles Grassley
The Honorable Marsha BlackburnWe join with members of the Senate Judiciary Committee and the U.S. House Select Panel on Infant Lives in recommending that the FBI investigate and potentially file criminal charges against Planned Parenthood.As Senate Judiciary Chairman Grassley stated, “I don’t take lightly making a criminal referral. But, the seeming disregard for the law by these entities has been fueled by decades of utter failure by the Justice Department to enforce it. And, unless there is a renewed commitment by everyone involved against commercializing the trade in aborted fetal body parts for profit, then the problem is likely to continue.”The time is well overdue for the FBI to conduct an investigation of Planned Parenthood and other companies that profit from aborted baby body parts. These companies are making outrageous profits from killing babies.Thank you for taking action on this important matter to pro-life Americans and to ensure Planned Parenthood adheres to the rule of law.
