Congress reports abortion facilities' "nefarious activities."

Congressional report cites nefarious activities at abortion facilities.

Fetal body parts and abortion industries caught in illegal activities.

Pro-Life Wisconsin concurs with the House Select Panel on Infant Lives that aborted fetal tissue research is “outdated technology,” has demonstrated “no benefit to patients,” and is ethically problematic.

We welcome the House panel’s call for robust federal funding of parent-donated tissues from natural demise of preterm and stillborn babies and an end to federal funding of human fetal tissue obtained from induced abortion.

As we have for more than 15 years, Pro-Life Wisconsin supports a comprehensive federal and state ban on the sale and use of aborted fetal body parts.

This article from LifeSiteNews.com tells the full story:

The Select Investigative Panel on Infant Lives released a nearly 500-page final report today, detailing Congressional findings on the nefarious activities of the fetal body parts and abortion industries.

The Panel says it has urged law enforcement officials to prosecute various abortion facilities, universities, and fetal tissue companies for violating federal laws and regulations.

The report reveals that it made a total of 15 such criminal referrals, including one against fetal tissue company StemExpress because it "may have destroyed documents that were the subject of congressional inquiries, document request letters, and subpoenas."

The Panel says they also sent letters to the Department of Justice and Texas Attorney General asking them to prosecute a late-term abortionist for allegedly murdering babies born alive.

Read the worst six findings, including that several Planned Parenthood affiliates made a profit from the transfer of aborted body parts and other fetal tissue, in violation of federal law, from the Congressional report here.

Pro-Life News

PLANNED PARENTHOOD: The abortion giant's own emails say they "are entering the most dangerous moment in Planned Parenthood’s history." PLW: We hope and pray that this Congress is able to defund Planned Parenthood and redirect funds to organizations that help more women and children. See more about what Wisconsin's Paul Ryan, speaker of the House, is doing.

PLANNED PARENTHOOD: Congressman Diane Black (R-TN) reintroduced H.R. 354 – the Defund Planned Parenthood Act of 2017. The legislation would prioritize preventive healthcare over elective abortion. PLW: Planned Parenthood doesn’t have a monopoly on women’s healthcare. There are 13,540 other taxpayer funded health care clinics across our country. Let’s finally end public funding of America’s abortion giant.

BURYING FETAL REMAINS: The president of an abortion provider told a federal court on Tuesday a proposed Texas regulation requiring facilities to dispose of aborted fetal tissue through burial or cremation is unnecessary and "offensive." PLW: The only offensive thing is thinking that dead human bodies don't deserve respect and dignity.

WOMEN'S MARCH: There is nothing that better tells the story of leftist hypocrisy and intolerance quite as well as the planned "Women's March on Washington" Jan. 21. PLW: Pro-Life Wisconsin and other pro-life, pro-family groups are unwelcome at this supposedly all-inclusive women's march. Rather, it's a march celebrating the culture of death.

WRONGFUL DEATH: The personhood of the pre-born from the moment of conception has now been recognized by the Supreme Court of Alabama as it relates to the Homicide Act, the chemical endangerment statute and the Wrongful Death Act. PLW: As we work to overturn Roe, it is encouraging to see states like Alabama apply personhood rights to the preborn child in as many contexts as legally possible.

ABORTION DECLINE: The abortion rate in the U.S. continued its steady decline. In the 46 states reporting data for both 2012 and 2013, the overall number of abortions fell by almost 5 percent. PLW: This study shows that while abortions have declined, the number of unplanned pregnancies has not. Greater access to contraception changed nothing, yet better education about the humanity of the preborn has changed everything.

POPULATION DROP: “We have created a world that over the long run is going to resemble a sort of collective suicide pact,” Steven W. Mosher, president of the Population Research Institute, said. “Children are becoming less and less common, and less and less desired. There is no developed country that has an above replacement fertility rate. That suggests we have a universal problem." PLW: Despite theories from the United Nations, the world's population is nearly stagnant. Read more from Mosher, who is speaking at two Pro-Life Wisconsin events this March.
