How will the European Commission react to the sale of aborted fetuses by Planned Parenthood?

Planned Parenthood, the world’s leading provider of abortion, is in deep trouble. The organization has released a series of press statements to deny allegations that it sells the body parts of aborted embryos – or at least it claims that it “does not profit in any way from tissue donation” (which seems to mean that yes, we do sell aborted embryos, but not at a profit...) – but this attempt at damage-control is immediately undermined by new video footage in which one can see a top Planned Parenthood official discussing “less crunchy” techniques to get “whole specimens” and haggling over the price of fetus tissue sales because she wants “a Lamborghini.”

There are rumours that the next video might include the dissection and harvesting of an aborted baby.

The scandalous revelations of Planned Parenthood’s practices have prompted several presidential hopefuls to announce that, if elected, they would take measures to defund Planned Parenthood of the taxpayers’ money it currently receives.

On our side of the Atlantic, it will be interesting to see how the European Commission reacts to the new (albeit unsurprising) information. The Commission currently uses EU Development Aid funds to provide lavish funding for Planned Parenthood’s “maternal health” programs in developing countries, which are known to include (viz. to consist mainly of) abortion. No information is available concerning the possible commercialisation of the bodies of the children that are aborted under the Commission-financed “maternal health” programs.
