Jindal For President - Calls on Companies to Not Fund Planned Parenthood 

Jindal for President

 

Following the release of multiple videos showing Planned Parenthood employees discussing the sale of human organs, Governor Jindal is calling on companies that provide funding to Planned Parenthood to stop doing so immediately.

When the first video emerged, Governor Jindal launched an investigation in Louisiana of Planned Parenthood. 

The Governor will be urging people online to sign a petition asking for companies to stop funding Planned Parenthood.

Here is a statement from Governor Jindal:
"Whether you call yourself pro-life, as I do, or pro-choice, or somewhere in between, these videos will really disturb any person with a conscience. 

"After the first video came out, I immediately launched an investigation here in Louisiana. Now, I'm calling for these companies to do the responsible thing and cut all ties with Planned Parenthood."

Cornerstone - Calls On AG for Investigation of Planned Parenthood  

Cornerstone Action

Cornerstone Calls on Attorney General to Investigate Planned Parenthood of Northern New England
 
     Due to the recent video released by the Center for Medical Progress, Cornerstone is calling upon the New Hampshire Attorney General to conduct a thorough investigation on the use of New Hampshire tax dollars funding Planned Parenthood of Northern New England.  The video shows a top doctor from Planned Parenthood casually sharing how the parts of aborted babies are sold and in turn how these sales help their bottom line.  Gruesome details are even shared on how doctors can fulfill orders by preserving certain desirable parts during the abortion procedure.

     New Hampshire currently has little to no regulation on abortion practices or facilities, leaving taxpayers to wonder of their money being used by an organization trafficking in fetal body parts.  In fact this illegal and inhumane practice could already be taking place in the State and at the expense of taxpayers.  Cornerstone urges the Attorney General to fully investigate the use of New Hampshire tax dollars by Planned Parenthood.  Taxpayers deserve accountability and transparency from every organization doing business with the state.

     As Political Director Sarah Koski notes, “New Hampshire’s lack of regulation makes it a great target for this kind of abuse, and our taxpayer’s hard-earned dollars should not under any circumstances be used to support practices like the ones documented by the Planned Parenthood’s own doctor in the Center for Medical Progress video.  Our citizens deserve to know how and where their money is being spent.”
