NAPA, Calif. (WordNews.org) Dec. 14, 2016 – Sen. Chuck Grassley, chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, has recommended U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch and FBI Director James Comey investigate four Planned Parenthood affiliates and three fetal tissue brokers for possible criminal prosecution.
Grassley’s recommendation follows a series of undercover videos released this spring by the Center for Medical Progress that allegedly documented Planned Parenthood affiliates’ harvesting aborted fetuses that would be sold nationally and internationally.
According to the Life Legal Defense Foundation, the Judiciary Committee has concluded the U.S. Department of Justice failed to enforce the federal fetal tissue trafficking statute.
The foundation said the Judiciary Committee’s investigation found that the following entities engaged in the purchase and sale of baby body parts for profit:
- StemExpress, LLC;
- Advanced Bioscience Resources, Inc.;
- Novogenix Laboratories, LLC;
- Planned Parenthood Mar Monte;
- Planned Parenthood Los Angeles;
- Planned Parenthood Northern California; and
- Planned Parenthood of the Pacific Southwest.
The foundation reports that the Senate Judiciary Committee also found evidence of conspiracy between Planned Parenthood Federation of America and its affiliates, since PPFA knew about the violations and changed oversight procedures in order to allow the violations to continue.

“Life Legal looks forward to the confirmation of Senator Jeff Sessions as the new U.S. Attorney General,” said Life Legal Defense Foundation Executive Director Alexandra Snyder. “Senator Sessions currently sits on the Judiciary Committee and we anticipate that he will thoroughly investigate Planned Parenthood’s activities and prosecute the affiliates to the fullest extent of the law.”
