Baby body-parts investigators stay on trail of evidence

Bob Unruh – December 29, 2016

The undercover videos exposing the baby body-parts trade of Planned Parenthood and others have been investigated, and a number of the executives caught on video have been referred to the Department of Justice for investigation and possible prosecution.

Think the fight’s over?

Not by a long shot.

The latest, according to the Thomas More Society, is an attempt by individuals and groups in Washington state to conceal details about their trade in body parts.

The sting exposed the sale by abortionists of various baby body parts to companies that resold them to researchers. The issue is the apparent profit in the transactions, and some abortionists said they could modify abortion procedures to salvage desired body parts.

Both actions are illegal under federal law.

Now Thomas More Society officials are contesting in the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals a lower court’s decision that lets publicly funded groups, such as universities, censor materials that should be public records.
