LANSING, Mich. – State Sen. Phil Pavlov, R-St. Clair, issued the following statement on Wednesday, following revelations of Planned Parenthood affiliates selling body parts of aborted babies:
“Planned Parenthood’s practice of turning a profit by selling body parts from babies they’ve aborted is shocking and disgusting.
“The admission by a senior Planned Parenthood official that affiliates are also tailoring abortions to maximize that profit – strategically performing abortions so they can obtain babies’ hearts, lungs, livers, and the ‘lower extremities’ desired by their buyers – should shake us all to the core, and demands action, not just outrage.
“Our conscience and our law are in agreement on this one – human life is not for sale.
“Today, I am calling on the Michigan Departments of Health and Human Services and Licensing and Regulatory Affairs to launch formal investigations into Planned Parenthood affiliates across Michigan to determine whether or not any Michigan-based facilities have participated in the horrifying sale of babies’ body parts.
“We must make sure this is not happening in Michigan, and that if it has, those responsible are brought to justice.”
