ADF leads call to defund Planned Parenthood in Colorado for ‘barbaric baby parts sale scheme’

Alliance Defending Freedom sent a second letter on behalf of Colorado Family Action to Colorado’s governor, speaker of the house, and senate president asking for an investigation of Planned Parenthood and an immediate end to taxpayer funding of the abortion giant (#DefundPP). The first letter was sent in July amidst controversy concerning Planned Parenthood’s apparent sale of baby body parts and its Colorado affiliate’s negligence in reporting the rape of a minor.
“American tax dollars should only be used to foster the health and well-being of women—not as part of Planned Parenthood’s barbaric baby parts sale scheme,” said ADF Legal Counsel Natalie Decker. “America does not need Planned Parenthood, which is only used by a very small minority of women. Women are better served by the numerous community health clinics that care about women instead of an organization that puts its bottom line first and manipulates abortion procedures in order to obtain viable baby body parts to sell.”

“It is simply false to suggest that withdrawing State or Federal funds from Planned Parenthood would deprive women of critical family planning services,” the ADF letter explains. “Planned Parenthood serves very few women. According to its own statistics, 98 percent of all women who seek family planning services never set foot inside a Planned Parenthood facility in a given year.”

“Colorado has many low-cost, high-quality community health centers and other non-abortion performing clinics available to serve women,” the letter continues. “These facilities can be trusted with our hard-earned money. Planned Parenthood, caught negotiating the sale of baby body parts, not only cannot be trusted, it should not be trusted. For these reasons, Coloradans should not subsidize this scandal-plagued billion dollar corporation.”
“The undercover videos expose the potential illegality of Planned Parenthood’s actions, and the grisly, inhuman nature of their business,” added ADF Senior Counsel Michael J. Norton. “You don’t have to be a pro-life advocate to see that Planned Parenthood doesn’t deserve a penny of our taxpayer dollars.”
