Planned Parenthood to continue ‘barbaric’ organ harvesting

Posted at The Christian Institute : US abortion group Planned Parenthood has said it will stop taking money for body parts from aborted babies in what is being called a “stunt” and an “admission of guilt” by the pro-life group which exposed its practices. Plannned Parenthood’s president, Cecile Richards, announced the change in policy in a letter to the National Institutes of Health. The move was met with skepticism by pro-life groups, who said that it does nothing to address the organisation’s “barbaric practice” of dismembering and harvesting the body parts of unborn children.

5 Things We’ve Learned Since The First Planned Parenthood Video

By John-Henry Westen - Posted at The Federalist : A lot of gruesome human rights violations have surfaced in the wake of the investigative videos uncovering Planned Parenthood's body parts trafficking.

Pro-lifers: PPFA head fails to satisfy concerns
