Missouri becomes latest state to admit that after spending tax payer money to investigate Planned Parenthood, they could find nothing wrong.

Courtesy of Mediaite:  

Planned Parenthood did not mishandle fetal tissue and was not engaged in wrongdoing in Missouri, the state’s Attorney General Chris Koster concluded Monday. 

An investigation into the women’s health organization was prompted after the Center for Medical Progress, a pro-life group, released videos allegedly showing top Planned Parenthood officials discussing the sale of fetal body parts. Planned Parenthood president Cecile Richards said the videos were “heavily edited,” but apologized for the “tone” expressed by some of her employees in the videos. 

“Koster’s investigation examined in detail the tissue-handling practices of Planned Parenthood’s Missouri surgical facility and concluded there was no evidence that the facility engaged in unlawful activity,” according to a press release. 

In addition to interviewing multiple Planned Parenthood employees in the St. Louis area, investigators also combed through thousands of pages of documents related to the “process for the disposal of fetal tissue,” the attorney general’s office said. They concluded that, after an abortion procedure, fetal tissue was carefully transported to a pathology lab, and was subsequently destroyed in an incinerator by a “waste-disposal company.” 

“The evidence reviewed by my investigators supports Planned Parenthood’s representation that fetal tissue is handled in accordance with Missouri law,” Koster, a Democrat, said in a statement. “We have discovered no evidence whatsoever to suggest that Planned Parenthood’s St. Louis facility is selling fetal tissue.”

So now Missouri joins Pennsylvania, Georgia, Indiana, Massachusetts, and South Dakota in wasting tax payer money on a witch hunt that found no witches.

Which isn't actually surprising, especially since the only two states where Planned Parenthood has fetal tissue donation programs is in California and Washington.

I swear these people are so dumb that they give dumb people a bad name.

    MSNBC is now showing the hearings in the House over Planned Parenthood. Cecile Richards is on the stand. It is very good. So far no wrong doings have been found over the videos or how they dispose of tissues. They are still promoting their false videos. I hope this will bring a closure to all the lies promoted b Fiorina about this. Jim Jordan of Ohio is calling Richards a liar. It seems the funding is the hot topic! They are upset that their Women's Health services (anti-abortion) are not being funded by the Government!....their reason to shut down the government! Try to watch if you can. I'm sure it is on C-SPAN. (Haven't checked)

      The repubs won't let Richards answer the questions, they're just show boating, I can't think of his name, but one guy had a board showing PP in a negative light, she said she couldn't explain the board because she don't know where it's from, one of her cracker jack staff member whispered something in her ear, then she says that board is from another organization, check your resources, and THAT'S when she cut him a new one, and he stfu

      7:49 - the board was a fake, from an anti-choice group. It was great to watch her correct him. What a liar little Jason from Utah is.

    The Far Right are bone lazy. Why should they bother doing their jobs? Better to arrive late, go shopping at Nordy's and then leave early. Let someone else do all the work- save your energy for the pageant waving photo ops.

  3. It won't make a difference. For some time RWNJ's have been making it plain, if the lie serves their agenda, it'll become the truth for them, no matter what facts refute them.

    Aren't their teabaggers who still believe Obama is a Muslim, that's he's not really an American, that we found WMD in Iraq, that Saddam had a hand in 9/11, that Palin nobly had a Down baby...

    It's amazing that the 'defund PP' effort is continuing in Congress and that people like Cruz and Fiorina are able to get away with their vitriol.

    Anti-abortion radicals from Operation Rescue are secretly directing those bogus attacks on Planned Parenthood

    North Carolina just banned all sale of fetal tissue (that isn't happening anyway) and all funding for any group promoting contraception. The march to turn women into house slaves is gaining steam.

  7. "So now Missouri joins Pennsylvania, Georgia, Indiana, Massachusetts, and South Dakota in wasting tax payer money on a witch hunt that found no witches."
    There is a fair amount of red distributed through those states.

    I would think that if PP could be shown to have committed wrongdoing, at least one of these states would have been able to present findings and conclusions to that effect.

    1. Just because there are no witches doesn't mean women (and some men) didn't die anyway.

      Just because Planned Parenthood hasn't sold fetal tissue or violated the law doesn't mean Federal funding won't be revoked. And once it is, they won't stop until Planned Parenthood has been destroyed, just like Acorn.

      Because that is what they want. They don't give a shit about the funding. They want Planned Parenthood gone.

    Can't wait to see how much money is pissed away total, in the states and in congressional hearings on this bullshit. I hope PP sues the shit out of these lying sacks of dung. "Center for Medical Progress"......(spits derisively).

    1. Anonymous1:51 PM

      I'll second that spit!

    2. Still won't be as much as has been wasted on hearing after hearing on Benghazi. Then e-mails. Then voting to abolish Obamacare.

      Republicans are all about fiscal responsibility, unless it is pissing away tax payer dollars on their own little pet projects and secret agendas.

    I didnt know the donation programs were only in CA and WA, but if I were carrying an unwanted fetus looking to abort and i had the money, those two states would be where I would seek an abortion from.

    Attorney General Chris Koster is a Democrats
    The GOP will not agree with this.

    Years ago, I had a later-term fetal death, and donated tissue.

    What I don't get in all this uproar is: 1) Tissue cannot be donated without the woman's consent, and 2) Why is donation apparently a TERRIBLE THING?

    Can anyone explain this to me?

    1. Anonymous11:19 AM

      I'm very sorry to hear about what happened and grateful that you chose to donate tissue.

      The uproar is two-fold, as far as I'm concerned:
      1. these people are fetus-worshippers
      2. these people want to control women in every facet of life

    2. Anonymous3:28 PM

      I may be wrong but my understanding of their message is PP does abortions to sell body parts as if PP wants fetuses to butcher them for profit.

  14. They're switching their tactics.

    Now members of the House are accusing Planned Parenthood of using Federal money for POLITICAL purposes. I guess lobbying or something.

    Really doesn't matter.

    They have their eye on the prize and will continue to switch tactics until they bring down Planned Parenthood like they destroyed Acorn.

    (BTW, where is our new Acorn? Where is the organization to replace it?)

    The Republicans have their agenda, doesn't matter what the truth is, they will lie and continue to lie so it fits their agenda.

    Who else would try and shut the government down over a false video, why are they even allowed to continue with this hoax at taxpayers expense is beyond me.


Don't feed the trolls!
It just goes directly to their thighs.
