House Panel Refers Prosecution
for Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast

NEW ORLEANS - The U.S. House of Representatives Select Panel on Infant Lives has reportedly released a list of nine criminal and regulatory referrals against abortion providers and fetal tissue procurement companies resulting
from its investigation into the illegal practice of selling aborted
baby remains for profit.

Among those referrals is one to Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton regarding
Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast. The criminal referral reportedly alleges that PPGC broke the law when it sold aborted baby remains for profit to the
University of Texas.

Benjamin Clapper, Executive Director of Louisiana Right To Life, said: "Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast, the same organization seeking a
license to sell 2,844 more abortions a year in New Orleans, has a
criminal referral claiming they have sold the body parts of aborted
babies for profit. We encourage the Texas Attorney General to further
investigate and prosecute. This is one more reason why the people of
Louisiana do not want to provide our tax dollars to the Planned
Parenthood abortion business. Louisiana needs peace, not more
abortion."
