Congressman Alex X. Mooney (WV-2) Issues Statement on Shocking Plan Parenthood Exposures

WASHINGTON, D.C. –Representative Alex X. Mooney (WV-2) issued a statement after the Center for Medical Progress released an abhorrent video of a top Planned Parenthood official’s admission to the illegal practice of harvesting and trafficking fetal organs after abortions.

Dr. Deborah Nucatola of Planned Parenthood is heard saying a number of disturbing things in the video such as: “We’ve been very good at getting heart, lung, liver, because we know that, so I’m not gonna crush that part, I’m gonna basically crush below, I’m gonna crush above, and I’m gonna see if I can get it all intact.”

 “I am deeply disturbed by the actions of Dr. Deborah Nucatola of Planned Parenthood. I stand with my colleagues in the House and Senate in opposition to these horrific practices. It is time that we investigate the atrocious and gruesome undertakings that are happening at Planned Parenthood.  

“That is why I signed a letter today along with dozens of other Representatives urging Chairmen Upton and Goodlatte to launch an investigation into the trafficking of fetal tissue as well as the unconscionable activities of abortion providers like Planned Parenthood” said Rep. Mooney.

“All human life is precious. Planned Parenthood’s callus actions should be a wakeup call to the rest of the country that abortion is wrong.”

The full video can be found on the Center for Medical Progress website.
