Unraveling of the for-profit baby body parts industry?

Some big news out of California, of all places, on fallout from the Center for Medical Progress undercover videos.

The Orange County District Attorney in California filed suit today against DaVinci Biosciences and DV Biologics, both partners of Planned Parenthood, who supplied them with body parts of aborted babies. The lawsuit alleges the companies illegally profited off of those body parts. Center for Medical Progress undercover videos in California involved correspondence with DV Biologics.

Kristan Hawkins, president of SFLA, said this:

“The Orange County, California District Attorney should be commended for suing two of Planned Parenthood’s business partners, DaVinci Biosciences and DV Biologics, for profiting off of the body parts of aborted babies, sold to them by Planned Parenthood. Hopefully this lawsuit is the beginning of the unraveling of the entire for-profit fetal tissue industry, one that Planned Parenthood has played a key role in for years.

“If a California District Attorney can file suit for illegally profiting off of baby body parts, there’s no excuse for law enforcement in other parts of the country not to do their jobs and put a stop to this criminal activity.”
