Planned Parenthood Could Lose All Federal Funding
Written By John M Disque
Planned Parenthood is not under fire for abortions. This is about an investigation into a non-profit company who is being accused of profiting off the sale of fetal organs and breaking federal laws.
Whether you're for abortion or opposed to it, it's important to focus on what this is and not get sidetracked into moral, gender or partisan debates.
BREAKING -- 3:00pm est. 7/25/2015
A senate bill to immediately stop all Planned Parenthood funding was just put on the Senate Floor.
Mitch McConnell is fast-tracking the bill.
Both the House version of the bill, introduced by Representative Diane Black (R-TN) and the Senate bill, introduced by presidential candidate Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) and Senator James Lankford (R-OK), would take effect immediately if passed.

About a year ago, a rather amateur independent investigation was conducted on Planned Parenthood and the topic was "the sale of fetal body parts from abortions." Recently, an undercover video associated with this investigation was released and marketed to the members of our US Congress in an attempt to get all funding to Planned Parenthood cut off.
The "Center for Medical Progress" is a little known organization said to be long-time, hardcore opponents of all abortions. Over lunch at an unnamed restaurant in an unnamed town, the video shows an actor posing as "a potential buyer of fetal tissue" and he's talking with Planned Parenthood’s senior director Deborah Nucatola.
The most alarming and disturbing issue about the video is the nonchalant way Mrs. Nucatola goes about eating her salad while explaining the pricing of body parts and the abortion procedures they would have to use to keep from damaging the body parts in-order to be sellable.
The donation of fetal tissue to medical research and science is allowed with the mother's consent. The sale of that tissue, with or without the mother's consent, is a major felony.
