Washington, D.C.— Rep. Mike Bost (IL-12) joined a number of his House colleagues in calling for Congressional investigations into Planned Parenthood’s alleged human fetal tissue trafficking activities.  Recently, an undercover investigation revealed new videotaped evidence of senior Planned Parenthood executives discussing compensation and profit from the sale of fetal tissues.

“These graphic videos showing Planned Parenthood executives callously discussing ending the lives of unborn children and then selling their organs are sickening to watch and beyond comprehension,” said Rep. Bost.  “This organization is anything but one that helps individuals plan for their ‘parenting.’  Besides the fact it conducts more than 300,000 abortions a year and is the largest abortion provider in the country, Planned Parenthood may now be a brokerage house for children’s organs.  This is beyond inhumane.  Congress needs to take a serious look at their practices and funding immediately.”
