Planned Parenthood lied to Governor Bobby Jindal.
Jindal opened an investigation into Planned Parenthood after videos showed employees of the abortion giant haggling over baby body parts. The president of Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast, Melaney Linton, said that her organization does not participate in organ harvesting. But today’s video, released by the Center for Medical Progress, showed the dissection of a baby performed by Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast.
The state of Louisiana has canceled its contract with the state’s two Planned Parenthood centers.
Louisiana governor and 2016 presidential candidate Bobby Jindal said that the decision came because of new videos showing illegal activity by top Planned Parenthood officials.
“In recent weeks, it has been shocking to see reports of the alleged activities taking place at Planned Parenthood facilities across the country. Planned Parenthood does not represent the values of the people of Louisiana and shows a fundamental disrespect for human life,” he said. “It has become clear that this is not an organization that is worthy of receiving public assistance from the state.”
Jindal, who had ordered the state to investigate Planned Parenthood for potential felony violations following the release of the first video, canceled the contract because of its “at will” provision. That means that “either party can choose to cancel the contract at will after providing written notice,” according to a press release from the governor’s office. “Governor Jindal and DHH decided to give the required 30-day notice to terminate the Planned Parenthood Medicaid provider contract because Planned Parenthood does not represent the values of the State of Louisiana in regards to respecting human life.”
“Pending the ongoing investigation, DHH [the Dept. of Health and Hospitals] reserves the right to amend the cancellation notice and terminate the provider agreement immediately should cause be determined,” it states.
Jindal seems like a good man.
