Letter: Truth comes out about ‘fetal sales’

It’s time to face the truth about Planned Parenthood – they never broke the law.

After last summer’s sting campaign against Planned Parenthood, politicians across the country attacked the organization on fabricated claims by the so-called Center for Medical Progress that Planned Parenthood was selling fetal tissue.

Last week, following an extensive investigation, a grand jury in Texas officially cleared Planned Parenthood of any wrongdoing. Not only did the grand jury clear Planned Parenthood, but it took one step further and indicted those who created the highly edited videos.

Not only Texas but Florida, Ohio, Washington, Pennsylvania, Georgia, Indiana, Massachusetts, Michigan, Missouri, and South Dakota have each cleared Planned Parenthood of wrongdoing. Another eight states have declined to even investigate, citing a lack of any evidence to suggest wrongdoing.

As the dust settles and the truth comes out, it’s become totally clear that the only people who engaged in wrongdoing are the criminals behind this fraud, and I am glad they are being held accountable as well as saddened that two of our congressional delegation swallowed the hoax without questioning the messengers.

I believe reason and good sense do exist, just not where politicians are more interested in pandering than good policy.
