Planned Parenthood Executive: We ‘Never Sold Fetal Tissue’

‘Planned Parenthood did nothing wrong’

CAMEROTA: “One of the interesting developments, Dawn, is what David Daleiden, the man behind the undercover videos, has been charged with. He was indicted on account of prohibition against the purchase and sale of human organs. Here is the statement he’s put out as a result of these charges. He says, ‘We respect the processes of the Harris County District Attorney, and note that buying fetal tissue requires a seller as well. Planned Parenthood still cannot deny the admissions from their leadership about fetal organ sales captured on video for all of the world to see.’ Basically, he’s saying he can’t be charged with buying if there was no seller. What’s your response?”
LAGUENS: “Well, I believe that he was charged with attempting to buy and of course, the grand jury found that Planned Parenthood did nothing wrong, so in essence, Planned Parenthood couldn’t have done what they alleged. And let me say for the record, again, Planned Parenthood has never sold fetal tissue. We’ve occasionally let women donate fetal tissue for important medical research and that’s now been proven out not only by this grand jury but by officials in 11 other states that looked at this that all found Planned Parenthood did nothing wrong and that’s consistent with, of course, our 99 year history as a high quality, well known women’s health provider in this country.”
CAMEROTA: “And Dawn, what about those three congressional investigations that are still ongoing? When will you find out the results of those?”
LAGUENS: “I’m not sure that they’re going to have results because I’m not sure that they’re intended to do anything but be part of an ideological crusade that would try to take away women’s right to safe, legal abortion in this country. And of course, we saw Cecile Richards, the president of Planned Parenthood, testify where it was very clear that she was just being drilled and interrupted for political purposes, it seemed, and not really to get at any kind of truth about this matter. But now this grand jury has made clear what we’ve said for three years. David Daleiden and the Center for Medical Progress worked to create a fake company, fake identities, lied, and engaged in a criminal conspiracy. And when they couldn’t find anything, they made it up. And now that’s out there for all the world to be clear on.”
