WASHINGTON (BP) — Planned Parenthood’s public persona now includes a report that the remains of babies aborted at some of its centers are dumped in landfills.
An investigation of three Planned Parenthood affiliates in Ohio showed that all of them send the remains of aborted children to companies that dispose of them at landfill sites, state Attorney General Mike DeWine announced Dec. 11. The fetal remains apparently are mixed at the landfills with “common residential and commercial trash,” DeWine said in a letter to the director of the state Department of Health.
The report came possibly only days before a vote in the U.S. House of Representatives to cut as much as 90 percent of federal funds in the next year for the Planned Parenthood Federation of America (PPFA) and its affiliates. The House may vote by Dec. 18 to approve a budget-related reconciliation bill already passed by the Senate.
President Obama has promised to veto the legislation, which also repeals fundamental sections of the controversial 2010 health care law backed by the president and opposed by nearly all pro-life organizations.
