Blackburn: Planned Parenthood trashed privacy law



Bob Unruh – June 1, 2016

Rep. Marsha Blackburn, the head of the U.S. House Select Investigative Panel regarding Planned Parenthood’s baby body parts trade and profit, on Wednesday asked the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services for an investigation into the transactions that appear to have violated, among other things, federal privacy law.

“The panel’s investigation has uncovered information indicating that StemExpress and Planned Parenthood Mar Monte (‘PPMM’), Planned Parenthood Shasta Pacific (‘PPSP’), and Family Planning Specialists Medical Group (‘FPS’) (hereinafter ‘the abortion clinics’) committed systematic violations of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (‘HIPAA’) privacy rule from about 2010 to 2015,” she wrote.
