Rep. Blackburn: Democrats Privately Attempted to Obstruct Investigation into Baby Body Parts Trade

Panel Press Conference 07142016

By Cheryl Sullenger

Washington, D.C. – One year to the day after the first undercover video was released by the Center for Medical Progress exposing Planned Parenthood’s involvement in the aborted baby body parts trade, the Select Panel on Infant Lives issued an Interim Report detailing their findings so far.

Led by Rep. Marsha Blackburn, several panel members outlined discoveries that support the claim that procurement companies profited from the sale of baby body parts.

“Documents show abortion clinics and middlemen who were exploiting women and selling baby body parts as part of a business plan to make more money,” Rep. Blackburn stated at today’s press conference.

Rep. Blackburn pointed out that the sale of aborted baby remains for financial gain is a 10-year felony offense.

Also expressed were concerns over stonewalling and non-compliance within the abortion industry to prevent the Panel from obtaining important financial information necessary to the investigation.

Rep. Blackburn also revealed, “The Minority privately attempted to obstruct the Panel’s fact-finding mission.”

“It is appalling, but not unexpected that the rabidly pro-abortion Democratic members of the Panel would try to sabotage the investigation. They are only advancing the exploitation of women and babies through their underhanded acts to protect a corrupt Abortion Cartel – which, incidentally, contributes substantial amounts to most of their political campaigns,” said Troy Newman, President of Operation Rescue, who also served as a founding board member for the Center for Medical Progress. “Those members who have been caught in obstructive acts should be removed from the Panel.”

Rep. Blackburn noted that abortion facilities and have profit motives that “could have a corrupting effect on the treatment of women facing an abortion decision.”

She expressed concern over the history of babies being born alive and the sale of aborted baby body parts at some late-term abortion facilities.

The Panel has uncovered evidence that some abortion providers have “altered abortion procedures in a manner that substitutes what is best for the patient with a financial benefit for both the abortion clinic and the procurement organization,” according to Rep. Blackburn.

Also discussed were deceptive patient consent forms that falsely informed women that fetal tissue research has found cures for diseases such as Alzheimer’s and Diabetes.

Members referred to documentation of violations of patient privacy by the abortion facilities and the procurement organizations that embedded employees at the clinics and allowed them to access patient medical records, a violation of HIPAA.

The Panel released a 94-page Interim Update detailing their findings so far and vowed to continue their fact-finding investigation until the end of the year when the Panel’s commission expires.

So far the Select Panel on Infant Lives has referred the University of New Mexico and Southwestern Women’s Options, a late-term abortion facility in Albuquerque, New Mexico, to the State Attorney General for further criminal investigation.

“Over the last year, Planned Parenthood has engaged in a concerted campaign to deceive the public about the contents of the CMP videos. Today, the Panel’s interim findings have only confirmed the validity of the CMP’s undercover exposés,” said Newman. “I urge the Panel to continue following the money. I believe when the financials are finally produced, and the truth comes out, there will be a lot of people working for Planned Parenthood and the procurement companies that are going to be hiring criminal defense attorneys, if they haven’t already.”

    Democrats the party of infant murders that stand up as being the party of death.

  • Kmbold

    I hope Rep. Blackburn is correct that there will be a price to pay by those guilty of this monstrous criminal activity and that it will come to an end. But Justice is a rare thing in this administration.

    Name the democrat baby killers. Make them own it. Do this on all issues so Americans can vote the lying crooks out of office. The democrat party and leaders hide nothing about lying and being a bunch of crooks they lie knowing it is a lie or a crooks way to fill there pockets. And for the rinos Americans know who you are so resign or face the voters.

  • got my licence

    This is a kin to what the Nazis did with the Jews. Apparently the only reason there are Democrats, or should I say Demoncrats, on the pannel is to leak info and obstruct the investigation.

  • gerald Hughes

    is there anyone left that still thinks that we can coexist with the liberal dem bloodsuckers?
    We must physically separate our selves from them, it’s that or civil war.

  • Loretta

    These people who do these things are totallly lost. To be so cold and callus What does it take to get there. There will be justice for this God bless Rep Blackburn. May she be kept safe

  • Charles Sever

    Why hasn’t the democratic party been arrested, with the lies and corruption that they are doing to our country. They even have Ginsburg spilling crap about Trump. Anybody with a sane mind would never vote for Hillary, the liar. Liberals have a agenda and I wonder what it is.

  • Peter Smith

    It’s just too bad these delinquent’s PARENTS didn’t have the same mindset. The parents would have nipped this issue in the bud, the delinquents would have wound up as just a little more medical waste.

  • keepyourpower

    She should list who is pushing back on the investigation..names please! Or do I have to do someone’s homework again!?

  • RubbLe1

    The Democratic National Committee. Appropriately initialed as the party of death with DNC.

  • DrBarbara

    The justice they are going to face is far beyond whatever human laws can do. This sin is so much worse than the run of the mill felonies that liberals commit every day. Dante’s Inferno purports that the lowest level of hell is reserved for those who betray those who need to be protected. Selling baby parts is the ultimate betrayal. And Hell will last for a long, long time.

  • Albert L Biele

    Maybe when they face their final judgement they can explain to God, not only why they murdered defenseless human-beings, but why their pull the baby parts out and selling them Today’s society in no different that the that of the Mayans, who pulled hearts out of live people to appease their rain God, wherein, doctors today pull parts out of living human beings for profit. Judgment day will be coming a lot sooner than most expect, I hope you have a good lawyer when you faced your final judgement; Jesus in my lawyer and last I heard, He’s still taking on new clients.

  • TPS12

    If pp is receiving taxpayer dollars they should not be allowed to give donations to any political campaign. They can use their own money but not taxpayer dollars.

  • Phil Esposito

    These people that are obstructing the investigation can be arrested. Why is no one going to jail?

  • Scottyone77

    “Democrat Party the party of Satan” how can anyone call there self a Christian and be a Democrate? The party platform stands for everything that is against the Bible and teachings of Jesus! Some things never cease to amaze me.

  • Gregory Thomas

    I think I see a way to end this whole bloody business. Simply issue arrest warrants and jail everyone associated with this awful practice…the doctors, the management at PP and, most of all, the middlemen who enriched themselves off of the death of these innocents. There can’t be abortion clinics if they’re all in jail.

  • nightingayle

    they belong in jail for obstructing justice…they have to be evil not to care about the baby’s being parted out for money

  • nightingayle

    Hope they enjoy hell…they will be there in the end.

  • Suzu M

    I would like to see the abortive mothers show concern about being duped. I would like to hear THEM come forward now. Does anyone have info on something like this?

  • drummie

    Any representative that is found to have obstructed the investigation should be charged with the felony that obstruction of Congress is and if convicted, removed from office, not removed from committee.
