California District Attorney Seeks $1.6 Million from Businesses that Sold Planned Parenthood’s Aborted Baby Parts


By Cheryl Sullenger

Orange County, CA – Stating that his aim is to take the profit out of selling aborted baby body parts, Orange County District Attorney Tony Rackauckas announced that a lawsuit had been filed against DaVinci Biosciences and DV Biologics, which his office say made big money from aborted baby remains obtained from Planned Parenthood abortion facilities.

The Yorba Linda-based companies are accused of earning more than $1.5 million in revenue from 2013 to 2015 that was directly related to the sale of aborted baby remains. This figure does not count additional profit made from mark-ups on the cost of shipping and handling the tissue.

Rackauckas is seeking $1.6 million fine from DaVinci Biosciences and DV Biologics and an injunction preventing the future sale of fetal tissue at a profit.

Rep. Marsha Blackburn, chair of the House Select Panel on Infant Lives, was tasked with investigating the illegal sale of aborted baby remains for profit as the result of undercover videos released by the Center for Medical Progress last year that exposed how tissue from aborted babies created a profit stream for Planned Parenthood and middle-man tissue procurement organizations.

Blackburn said yesterday in a press statement concerning the suit that from 2008 through 2015, DaVinci Biosciences obtained its fetal tissue from Planned Parenthood of Orange and San Bernardino Counties (PPOSBC). She issued the following statement:

For nearly a year, critics of this Panel’s fact-finding investigation have repeatedly called for it to be disbanded, saying there’s nothing to see here. They claimed there was no wrongdoing in the fetal tissue industry. This claim was soundly debunked with a lawsuit filed by Orange County District Attorney Tony Rackauckas, which reveals that officials at the state and local level share our concern that some fetal tissue middlemen may have broken the law.

Based on the evidence uncovered during our Panel’s investigation, we have been deeply troubled about the relationship between DaVinci and PPOSBC, which appears to have created a market for the donation of human fetal tissue. As a result, our Panel is continuing to look at connections between Planned Parenthood and tissue procurement companies. The lawsuit filed by the Orange County DA shows that there is also broad support at the state and local level to uncover the truth about what is going on in the abortion and fetal tissue industries.

“This was exciting news that shows real progress is being made on investigations launched in reaction to the undercover Planned Parenthood videos,” said Troy Newman, President of Operation Rescue who served as a founding board member for the Center for Medical Progress (CMP). “Planned Parenthood’s deceptive public relations campaign denying involvement is as phony as a three dollar bill, and we look forward to Planned Parenthood and all their baby-trafficking cohorts being brought to justice in the near future.”

Newman and CMP lead investigator David Daleiden are fighting two Federal lawsuits filed by Planned Parenthood and the National Abortion Federation, which are seeking to block the release of additional CMP investigative materials.

  • conservmrs

    I am praying for the Attorney General’s Lawsuit to be settled in his favor!

  • American ex-Pat

    Next step is to get the Harris County D.A. to do the same with the Houston ‘PP’ baby slaughter-house and organ mill!

    Why are they not being prosecuted for criminal acts and violating the law. Why are they not going to prison? Money will never replace the injustice born of greed in the dismemberment of babies and sold as commodities in a depraved society. Why are the company CEOs not being prosecuted under the law?

    Refreshing news from California.

    I’d be so happy if every single Planned Parenthood was shut down in my lifetime. I’m not holding my breath, but was this OC DA is doing is a really good start. It’s way past time to end the tyrannical reign of these murderers, once and for all.

  • Cerebralist

    If there are no criminal charges and those that violated existing law in trafficking human tissue are simply fined a greater injustice will be perpetrated against those babies that were aborted and sold as commodities on the open market. What will prevent this from occurring again in the future as another opportunity to catch them in their evil acts has been banned by Governor Brown! The Center for Medical Progress took great personal risk to expose this practice

    I’ve been reading up on the actions of Planned Parenthood and those connected with them concerning this process. I am apalled at what they are doing related to promoting abortions. And now, to find out they are selling the parts to outside sources makes me angry. They obviously have become a for-profit organization; promoting the steps to getting abortions and profiting from this. I recently read that the possibility of some of the remains may be being used in the mix of ground beef used by, at least two restaurant suppliers. As the information was limited, I do not want to state their names here, but would be concerned as to who is buying the remains and are they mixing them with other meats? But if true, I can see why PP would be promoting more and more abortions.

    As to abortions themselves, the only time I would even justify such actions would be if it was caused by rape, incest, or a life threatening condition. Otherwise, the women should wear some sort of protection (and the male; condoms).

    Because they are wanting the increase of population to be reduced or eliminated completely. Those who want to reduce our populations (worldwide) will do what they think is necessary to accomplish this. Wars alone will not accomplish their goals. Nor will pharmaceuticals or gangs or any element in the manner they want to make it happen.

    It’s the District Attorney NOT the Attorney General!
