Right to Life of Indianapolis Applauds Pence’s Investigation into Planned Parenthood
Indianapolis is Home to Planned Parenthood’s Largest Indiana Abortion Facility
INDIANAPOLIS – Right to Life of Indianapolis applauds Gov. Mike Pence’s announcement to investigate Indiana’s Planned Parenthood facilities. The investigation comes on the heels of a new video showing Planned Parenthood’s Director of Medical Services discussing how to obtain baby body organs in abortions and sell them to interested buyers.
Pence directed the Indiana State Department of Health to work in conjunction with the Indiana Attorney General’s Office to ens ure fetal tissue laws are being followed by Indiana’s Planned Parenthood facilities.
“We believe Gov. Pence’s order to investigate is an important step to ensuring local Planned Parenthoods aren’t illegally selling aborted baby parts,” stated Marc Tuttle, President of Right to Life of Indianapolis. “According to a former Indianapolis Planned Parenthood nurse, the abortion provider used to throw aborted baby body parts down the garbage disposal and into the sewer system. We hope they have changed their practice, but we pray they haven’t moved to an equally egregious practice of selling baby body parts. We look forward to the results of the state investigation.”
Planned Parenthood’s largest Indiana abortion facility is located at 8590 Georgetown Rd., Indianapolis. According to state data, in 2014, the abortion provider did 2973 abortions, or 36 percent of all statewide abortions.
