- United States of America
The Center for Medical Progress has documented the illegal activities of Planned Parenthood who are selling the body parts of aborted children to research companies for profit.
The videos can be viewed here www.centerformedicalprogress.org
The callous and disrespectful way that the Planned Parenthood executives discuss the methods they use to obtain the most number of sellable “human tissue” body parts is worse than recorded discussion during the Nazi Nuremberg trials.
Dozens of organizations around Ohio have written a letter (see below) to Governor Kasich to remove all tax payer funding from Planned Parenthood as well as all medical facilities who perform abortions. Please add your name to the letter, noting your zip code. You could also indicate the name of your church or parish as a means of identification
Dear Governor Kasich:
After the revelation of Planned Parenthood’s admitted practice of harvesting and profiting from the sale of body parts of aborted unborn babies, and with the Ohio Attorney General undertaking an investigation into potential illegal activities of Planned Parenthood in Ohio, we call upon you to exercise your leadership to more fully protect defenseless unborn human life.
We the undersigned, representing thousands of Ohio citizens across the state, request that you use your executive prerogative to eliminate all allocations of taxpayer funding to Planned Parenthood, its affiliates and all other abortion providers, whether those funds are tied to Medicaid or other line items in Ohio’s budget.
According to the Treasurer of State’s online checkbook, Planned Parenthood received over $1.3 million in taxpayer dollars in Ohio during fiscal year 2014 . This money is funding that is being distributed through the Ohio Department of Health. Therefore, Governor Kasich, we believe that in order to ensure that Ohio leads the nation in both protecting human lives and taxpayer dollars, your action to stop the distribution of these funds is needed now.
We also request that you work in tandem with Ohio’s Auditor of State to conduct an extensive audit of these organizations’ use of such taxpayer funding, and to ensure that violations of federal and/or state laws, including the misuse of taxpayer funds, are charged and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.
We, the undersigned Ohio organizations, all of whom share the mission of standing for the protection of defenseless unborn human children, call upon you today to move to make Ohio a safer place for pregnant women and unborn children. Please take action against Planned Parenthood today.
The Defund All Abortion Facilities petition to Governor John Kasich - Ohio was written by Cleveland Right to Life and is in the category Human Rights at GoPetition.
