Texas Governor Greg Abbott has pledged to investigate Planned Parenthood and hold them accountable for the Medicaid fraud implicated in the fifth and most gruesome video by The Center for Medical Progress.
After a lengthy and damning interview with Melissa Farrell, the Director of Research for Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast in Houston, the video shows Planned Parenthood employees blithely sifting through a casserole dish filled with easily identifiable baby limbs, tissue, and organs, and laughing that the mutilated baby was a twin.
Gov. Abbott released this statement explaining how he plans to proceed:
“The video of a high-level Planned Parenthood executive discussing the details of internal abortion procedures – including harvesting of baby body parts – is unnerving and appalling. In light of the video, I have directed the Texas Health and Human Services Commission to conduct an immediate investigation of this alleged practice in addition to a separate investigation ordered by the Texas Office of the Attorney General.”
