Washington, DC — Today U.S. Congressman Kevin Brady, Chairman of the Health Subcommittee of Ways and Means, released a letter to Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast, an affiliate of Planned Parenthood of America Inc., requesting information on the number of fetal organs and tissues they have harvested over the last three years.

“Whether you are pro-choice or strongly pro-life as I am, Americans have agreed that harvesting the organs and tissues of aborted babies for profit or compensation is both unethical and unlawful. Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast is one of the largest providers of abortions in Texas. While Congress intends to conduct thorough investigations over Planned Parenthood’s potentially illegal harvesting-for-profit practices, I and many of my constituency are troubled by the likelihood of similar organ-harvesting practices occurring at the Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast (PPGC) affiliate in Houston.”
