Ohio Planned Parenthood Caught

When the Center For Medical Progress released its undercover Planned Parenthood investigation videos, many state governments made the wise decision to investigate Planned Parenthood clinics in their state to find out what is really going on at their state’s abortion clinics. Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine released a report revealing that all three of Ohio’s Planned Parenthood clinics have violated state law with regard to the proper disposal of aborted children’s bodies. Ohio law requires that all aborted fetuses be disposed of in a humane way. Upon investigation, DeWine uncovered that the clinics have actually been sending the fetuses to landfills, the same place that Ohio citizens send their day-to-day trash. He calls this “callous and completely inhumane” and said that “It is important the public be aware that these practices are taking place at these Ohio facilities.”

Planned Parenthood has responded to being caught up in this criminal activity by filing a lawsuit against the state officials who caught them. They claim that the attack on Planned Parenthood was “politically motivated” and that Planned Parenthood facilities are regularly inspected by the Ohio Department of Health. However, the director of the Ohio Department of Health said that DeWine’s Justice Department is only trying “to restrict Planned Parenthood activities where violations of law have occurred.” Clearly, Planned Parenthood does not have a leg to stand on with their frivolous counter-suit.

For months now it has been clear that Planned Parenthood clinics have been involved in shady, under-the-table conduct that they do not want the American people to know about. The dumping of aborted fetuses in landfills in Ohio is just the latest example of this. This practice is completely inhumane, and shows the utter disregard that Planned Parenthood has for human life. It’s time for Americans to stand up and demand that Planned Parenthood be held accountable for its actions.
