Hultgren praises state House resolution to probe Planned Parenthood
U.S. Rep. Randy Hultgren (R-Dist. 14) praised a state House resolution, HR 671, that seeks to investigate Planned Parenthood Federation of America (PPFA).
The bill aims to de-fund the organization after the release of videos of Planned Parenthood executives discussing the sale of body parts, including lungs, livers and brains, from aborted bodies.
The resolution specifically pushes the state to investigate Planned Parenthood and its abortion procedures. The bill was introduced by state Rep. Jeanne Ives (R-Dist. 42).
The bill urges several Illinois agencies to investigate Planned Parenthood's procedures for abortions, including any sale or donation of human fetal organs across the state, as well as investigate which state organizations are involved in purchasing or accepting human fetal tissue from Planned Parenthood.
“Planned Parenthood’s activities deserve an immediate and thorough investigation by both state and federal law enforcement, and I urge Illinois to act quickly on this resolution,” Hultgren said. “With the organization receiving more than $500 million in taxpayer dollars every year, they must be held accountable and provide detailed information about their fetal organ donation program and procedures, and their modification of abortion techniques to maximize their donations."
Born and raised in Illinois, and having spent more than 15 years serving Illinois and its citizens at multiple levels of government, Hultgren serves the 14th District, which consists of seven suburban counties: McHenry, Lake, Kendall, Kane, DuPage, DeKalb and Will.
