    To clarify, the grand jury indicted the Director and an employee of the Center for Medical progress—the organization who released the doctored videos that attempted to portray Planned Parenthood as illegally selling body parts for profit.

    Additionally, the grand jury cleared Planned Parenthood of all charges.

    I'm sure the lawmakers who condemned Planned Parenthood are going to release a statement apologizing for their remarks about the organization any minute now.

    The ironic part: It was a grand jury in Texas - one of the most vocal states leading the charge to defund Planned Parenthood - that cleared Planned Parenthood of all charges.

    I'm sure Gov. Abbott will be announcing that he will replenish the money from the taxpayer-funded investigation of Planned Parenthood from his next paycheck any minute as well...

    Any moment now.





    Any moment now.

    Tampering with official government documents is severely frowned-upon. Who could think otherwise?

    Subsequent news reports were speculating that the felony was that they used counterfeit government IDs. I didn't see the explanation of why they thought they needed fake IDs, however. Since PP apparently required government IDs for admittance as part of their security procedures, why not just use your own real ID? Anybody delve into the details on this?

    A Republican governor requested the investigation. A Republican prosecutor led the grand jury. Can you say schadenfreude?

    If these activists spent a fraction of their time advocating for birth control and preventative services rather than trying to defund the entire organization for 3% of what they do, they might actually make a real impact on the abortion rate.

    But that would be against their beliefs. They want everything and there is no comprises. That's why they have never stopped abortion in the 2000 year history.

    But if this were a gun debate these same people would say that attempting to ban guns would never work. Ironic.

    When I saw this on the news last night I almost jumped up and cheered. It's nice to see a witch hunt stopped so abruptly and so finally.

    So Planned Parenthood doesn't sell baby parts for money?

    These people were not serving God. They were only serving themselves. If they had been doing the will of God, there would have been no need to lie.

    It’s a positive development. The Times all but buried the PP horrors and lawbreaking being revealed until now, so look for more to come out on the topic.

    As per the linked source:

    “Nothing about today’s announcement in Harris County impacts the state’s ongoing investigation,” Mr. Abbott said in a statement. “The State of Texas will continue to protect life, and I will continue to support legislation prohibiting the sale or transfer of fetal tissue.”

    The state attorney general, Ken Paxton, said in a statement: “The fact remains that the videos exposed the horrific nature of abortion and the shameful disregard for human life of the abortion industry. The state’s investigation of Planned Parenthood is ongoing.”
