49 Congress Members Call on A.G. Barr to Find Whether Planned Parenthood Abortionists Violated Partial-Birth Abortion Ban

Rep. Roger Marshall (R-KS)
49 members of Congress led by US Representative Roger Marshall (R-KS) sent a letter to US Attorney General William Barr, calling on him to investigate abortionists who may have violated the Partial Birth Abortion Ban passed in 2003. The letter referenced a video published by the Center for Medical Progress on August 24, which included unsealed sworn testimony from an April 2019 court hearing.

In a press release regarding the letter, Congressman Marshall said, “As a pro-life American and OB/GYN who worked for over 25 years to save the lives of both mothers and babies, it is beyond sickening to see and hear confessions of such heinous acts being committed in our country. I am committed to standing up for the life of all babies, born and unborn. We must hold these physicians and the organizations backing and supporting them accountable for their actions.”

The letter to AG Barr concludes, "This information is deeply troubling and necessitates further inquiry. We respectfully ask that in light of the recently unsealed testimony, the Department investigate whether Planned Parenthood has violated the Partial Birth Abortion Ban Act."
