In a speech on Saturday at the Values Voters Summit in Washington, D.C., David Daleiden provided an update on Planned Parenthood. Last year, Daleiden’s Center for Medical Progress released a series of undercover videos allegedly showing Planned Parenthood officials engaging in illegal activities, including the trafficking of fetal body parts.
“Since the videos were released, 26 states, more than half the country, have moved to strip Planned Parenthood of its taxpayer subsidies and reassign that money to full-spectrum, mainstream community health centers,” said Daleiden. He continued:
And for the first time in history, Congress was able to put a bill on the president’s desk to completely end Planned Parenthood’s half-a-billion dollars in tax-payer support. The only thing we now need to zero out 50 percent of Planned Parenthood’s income is the signature of a president who will listen to us.
Daleiden went on to explain Planned Parenthood’s status as America’s abortion giant, most responsible for the “extermination and commodification” of preborn babies.
Since the release of the videos, congressional investigations have been launched into the alleged fetal body parts market. In his speech, Daleiden argued that the evidence gathered by the investigations will signal the beginning of the end for Planned Parenthood:
Planned Parenthood’s house of cards is falling down. And as more and more details continue to come to light from the congressional investigation and others about their illicit body parts trade, Planned Parenthood’s abortion empire will begin to crumble.
