Republicans say we need to bring Planned Parenthood to court to prosecute them for what they’ve done. Oh wait, it’s already happening? Well, now we’ll see all the terrible things they’ve done:
Officials in 11 states have cleared Planned Parenthood of wrongdoing after investigating claims that they profited from fetal tissue donation, officials said, including Florida, Georgia, Indiana, Kansas, Massachusetts, Michigan, Missouri, Ohio, Pennsylvania, South Dakota and Washington.
Officials in eight other states declined to investigate citing a lack of any evidence, including California, Colorado, Delaware, Idaho, Iowa, Minnesota, New Hampshire and Virginia.
Oh. Well, now there’s a grand jury investigation in Texas and they’ll surely find something:
A grand jury investigating allegations of misconduct against Planned Parenthood after the release of covertly shot videos about the use of fetal tissue from abortions has instead indicted two anti-abortion activists who made the videos, authorities said Monday.
David Daleiden, 26, director of the Irvine-based non-profit Center for Medical Progress, was indicted by the grand jury on a felony charge of tampering with a governmental record and a misdemeanor count related to purchasing human organs, Harris County District Attorney Devon Anderson said in a statement.
An employee at the center, Sandra Merritt, was also indicted on a charge of tampering with a governmental record.
Oops. I wonder if this will change the minds of the Republicans:
“Nothing about today’s announcement in Harris County impacts the state’s ongoing investigation,” Texas Governor Greg Abbott said in a statement late Monday.
Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton agreed.
Silly me, of course not.
