• Jindal Announces Planned Parenthood Investigation

    Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal is directing his state’s Department of Health and Hospitals to launch an investigation into Planned Parenthood.

    This comes on the heels of the release of an investigative video by pro-life group Center for Medical Progress that reveals Dr. Deborah Nucatola, Planned Parenthood’s chief medical officer, discussing the harvest of fetal organs and body parts from partial-birth abortions.

    “Today’s video of a Planned Parenthood official discussing the systematic harvesting and trafficking of human body parts is shocking and gruesome,” Jindal, a Republican presidential contender, said Tuesday.

    “This same organization is seeking to open an abortion clinic in New Orleans,” he continued. “I have instructed Louisiana’s Department of Health and Hospitals to conduct an immediate investigation into this alleged evil and illegal activity and to not issue any licenses until this investigation is complete. I am also asking the FBI to assist DHH in investigating this alleged criminal activity by this organization.”

    The investigation means the $4 million clinic planned for New Orleans will not be able to open because Jindal’s order includes suspending the issuance of new licenses by DHH.

    The Planned Parenthood Federation of America has issued a statement saying the video cited by Gov. Bobby Jindal in launching an investigation into the group’s practices is deceptively edited and false.
