The chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee has referred Planned Parenthood and several affiliates to the Department of Justice and the FBI for investigation and potential criminal prosecution.
Sen. Charles Grassley’s referral follows a committee investigation
into whether Planned Parenthood’s fetal tissue transfer practices
violate federal law.
“While the impetus for the investigation was the release of a series
of videos regarding transfers of fetal tissue by the Center for Medical
Progress, the committee’s analysis and findings are based strictly on
the documents obtained independently from tissue procurement companies
and Planned Parenthood,” Grassley’s office said in a statement.
