Ohio Planned Parenthood Investigation Reveals Fetal Remains Disposed of in Landfills

(COLUMBUS, Ohio)—Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine today announced that his office has concluded its investigation into the alleged sale of fetal tissue by Planned Parenthood affiliates. While the investigation did not find any indication that fetal tissue was sold by Planned Parenthood affiliates in Ohio, the investigation did reveal that that aborted fetuses from Planned Parenthood facilities are ultimately disposed of in landfill sites.

Earlier this year, Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine directed his Charitable Law Section to investigate whether Planned Parenthood affiliates in Bedford Heights, Cincinnati, and Columbus were violating Ohio law by selling fetal tissue, or abortion trafficking, in violation of Ohio Revised Code 2919.14. The Charitable Law Section requested documents and financial records from Planned Parenthood organizations as well as companies they contracted with. The investigation did not find that fetal tissue was sold by Planned Parenthood affiliates in Ohio.

The investigation showed that the disposal methods documented by the Planned Parenthood affiliates violate Ohio Administrative Code 3701-47-05, adopted in 1975, which requires that a “fetus shall be disposed of in a humane manner.” Specifically:
All three Ohio Planned Parenthood affiliates have sent fetal remains to companies which disposed of the fetuses in landfills.
Additionally, the Planned Parenthood facility in Bedford Heights stated it uses only one company for disposal. However, that company stated to investigators it does not accept fetal remains for disposal as a corporate policy.

“Disposing of aborted fetuses from an abortion by sending them to a landfill is callous and completely inhumane,” said Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine. “It is important the public be aware that these practices are taking place at these Ohio facilities.”

Attorney General DeWine referred his investigative findings to the Ohio Department of Health for further action. A copy of DeWine’s letter is available on the Ohio Attorney General’s website.

Obama Health & Human Services Department Stands by Planned Parenthood

The Indiana General Assembly passed state-level legislation during their last session similar to Rep. Mike Pence’s effort on the federal level to de-fund tax dollars to Planned Parenthood.

Then this afternoon, the Obama Administration sent a letter to the State of Indiana stating they have denied approval of Indiana’s State Medicaid plan which prohibits  state and federal funds administered by the state from going to entities that  perform abortions or maintain or operate facilities where abortions are performed, except for hospitals or ambulatory surgical centers.

Such a move by the federal government today against Indiana might shift this fight into the courts. Stay tuned…
