The U.S. Department of Justice has launched a formal investigation of Planned Parenthood, the nation's largest provider of abortions, for their role in the alleged sale of baby body parts.
"The Justice Department's investigation of Planned Parenthood is a major turning point in the battle to hold the nation's largest abortion business accountable," Marjorie Dannenfelser, president of the Susan B. Anthony List, said Dec. 8.
"Evidence shows Planned Parenthood sought to squeeze every last opportunity for cash from the sale of hearts, brains, lungs, and livers of aborted children… that ends now," Dannenfelser continued.
The Justice Department confirmed Dec. 7 they were formally looking into allegations against Planned Parenthood for the illegal sale of aborted baby body parts.
