The sale or purchase of human fetal tissue is a federal felony punishable by up to 10 years in prison or a fine of up to $500,000 (42 U.S.C. 289g-2). Federal law also requires that no alteration in the timing or method of abortion be done for the purposes of fetal tissue collection (42 U.S.C. 289g-1).
In July 2015, the Center for Medical Progress released the first undercover videos in a long series of investigations into the fetal trafficking industry, revealing the dark underbelly of the abortion industry, one that callously negotiated for the sale of body parts of aborted babies.
Planned Parenthood, the nation’s largest abortion provider, has been a major player in the undercover videos with many of their abortionists and executives featured. The videos shed light on possible criminal activity by Planned Parenthood and their partners in the for-profit baby parts industry.
Planned Parenthood, their vendors, and other allies have broken multiple laws and are under criminal investigation by the US Government, some universities, and a few states. This website aims to compile as many of those investigations under one roof as possible. We list criminal referrals that have been made, on-going criminal investigations, as well as the organizations involved.
