Pennacchio: Latest Planned Parenthood Video Adds to the Concern of Agency’s Motives, Practices

Senator Joe Pennacchio today issued the following statement today regarding the release of a second video apparently depicting a Planned Parenthood representative discussing the procedure and price for providing body parts from aborted fetuses to medical research centers.

“This latest troubling video of a Planned Parenthood representative discussing the price of fetal tissue from aborted fetuses and apparent suggestions that abortion procedures can be altered to better harvest organs or tissue only adds to the concern surrounding the agency’s practices and true motives,” said Pennacchio (R-Morris). “For this high-level Planned Parenthood director to say that she wants a Lamborghini during the same conversation as naming prices for the cost of harvesting organs from aborted fetuses is at best a disturbing representation of the agency’s greed and complete disregard for human decency. At worst, the selling of aborted body parts is not only despicable but flat out illegal.”

Following the release of an initial video earlier this month reportedly depicting a Planned Parenthood executive discussing the sale of body parts from aborted fetuses, Senator Pennacchio joined New Jersey Right to Life Executive Director Marie Tasy in denouncing the abhorrent act and requested an investigation into whether any New Jersey Planned Parenthood facilities were participating in the illegal sale of fetal body parts.

“What’s clear from these two videos is that there needs to be a hard look at the practices of Planned Parenthood across the country,” Pennacchio said. “This issue has risen to a point that it simply can’t be ignored or swept under the rug.”
