Panel Must Consist of Members that can Investigate without Conflict of Interest

 

Washington, D.C – It was recently reported that House Minority Leader Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) has picked six strong abortion rights supporters for the GOP-led panel on Planned Parenthood, setting up a showdown over the already-controversial probe. However, it has just been revealed that Planned Parenthood has paid nearly $100,000 into electing the six Democrats just selected to sit on the new House Select Investigative Panel probing Planned Parenthood’s atrocities.
The March for Life questions the ethical implications of these appointments in the following statement:
“If the Minority Leader genuinely wanted to get to the truth of the matter she would have been bold and appointed members of unquestionable integrity, such as Congressman Dan Lipinski,” said Jeanne Mancini, President of the March for Life Education & Defense Fund. “Instead, she appointed members whose campaigns have received thousands of dollars from the nation’s largest abortion provider, Planned Parenthood, to investigate the practices of that very group.”

The March for Life in Washington, D.C., began as a small demonstration on January 22, 1974, the first anniversary of the now-infamous Supreme Court decisions in Roe v. Wade and Doe v. Bolton and rapidly grew to be the largest pro-life event in the world. The peaceful demonstration that has followed on this somber anniversary every year since is a witness to the truth concerning the greatest human rights violation of our time, abortion.

Jeanne Mancini, President of March for Life Education and Defense Fund, is available for interviews. For more information or to schedule an interview, please contact Ryan Hughes at RHughes@SBPublicAffairs.com or (703) 739-5920.
