A pro-life organization claims it has obtained proof that shows the Houston Planned Parenthood clinic that was cleared of criminal wrongdoing by a Texas grand jury last week illegally profited off the sell of aborted baby body parts. The organization is now calling on the Harris County district attorney to resign from her position.
After a Harris County grand jury conducted an investigation into evidence obtained by the Center for Medical Progress’ undercover Planned Parenthood videos released last year that allegedly shows Planned Parenthood officials discussing how the company skirts around certain state and federal laws in the harvesting of fetal tissue, the grand jury’s investigation ended with the producers of the CMP videos being indicted with felony charges while officials from the abortion clinic were cleared.
CMP founder David Daleiden and his associate Sandra Merritt were both indicted on felony charges of tampering with government records and could face up to 20 years in prison.
Last Friday, an attorney with Operation Rescue, a pro-life organization that has its own negative history with the Harris County District Attorney’s office, said during a news conference outside the Houston Planned Parenthood clinic that he has uncovered documents that “appear to throw water in Planned Parenthood’s claim that they do not profit from the sale of fetal tissue, but only make enough to cover the costs.”
The documents that lawyer Briscoe Cain uncovered are a number of invoices for fetal tissue reimbursements and associated emails from Planned Parenthood of the Gulf Coast to the University of Texas Medical Branch in Galveston, Texas.
According to one invoice dated from January 2011 to June 2011, the school appears to have owed Planned Parenthood $2,374.98 for 12 specimens. According to an invoice from February to August of 2010, the school appears to have owed the abortion provider a total of $5,750 for 25 specimens.
Many of the documents that Cain uncovered were signed by Melissa Farrell, the director of research for the Planned Parenthood clinic in Houston, the same Planned Parenthood official who appeared in the fifth video released by CMP last year.
