It's time to #DefundPlannedParenthood because the revelations in the latest video are simply horrifying. The organization Advanced Bioscience Resources is mentioned in the latest video from the Center for Medical Progress. Since 2013, Colorado State University has been acquiring fetal tissue from this organization. ABR, like StemExpress is also implicated in the ongoing Center for Medical Progress investigations. ABR is a long-time trafficker of aborted babies' body parts. Since 1989, ABR has been obtaining fetal tissue through a variety of methods, including via "induced abortions." They even have a fee schedule illustrating that they charge hundreds of dollars in "service fees" for aborted babies' body parts.The University must distance itself from doing business with ABR. Take a look for yourself, ABR's own documents are attached to this post. My legislation, H.R. 3215, the End Trafficking of the Terminated Unborn Act of 2015 would end this horrific practice once and for all.
Today, at approximately 12noon MT, I will be speaking on the House Floor in support of H.R. 1994, VA Accountability Act of 2015. The fact that only 3 employees were successfully fired due to wait time manipulations is a disgrace. Poor and mediocre performance that endangers our veterans should not be tolerated. H.R. 1994 will help remove bad actors from the VA system, enabling the dedicated VA employees to better serve our veterans.
Good to chat with Kip Hansen today!
I call on Colorado State University to commit to no longer using aborted babies' body parts in research. http://www.washingtonexaminer.com/lawmaker-pressures-colorado-state-university-stop-using-aborted-fetus-samples-for-research/article/2569117
