Planned Parenthood, once again, is going to have to answer some questions about the way they do business when it comes to aborted fetuses.

Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine today says that his office investigation has turned up a rather grisly discovery. The office claims their investigation found that Planned Parenthood disposes of aborted baby fetuses in Ohio landfills. DeWine put out a press release regarding the conclusions of the investigation.

(COLUMBUS, Ohio)—Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine today announced that his office has concluded its investigation into the alleged sale of fetal tissue by Planned Parenthood affiliates. While the investigation did not find any indication that fetal tissue was sold by Planned Parenthood affiliates in Ohio, the investigation did reveal that that aborted fetuses from Planned Parenthood facilities are ultimately disposed of in landfill sites.


The investigation showed that the disposal methods documented by the Planned Parenthood affiliates violate Ohio Administrative Code 3701-47-05, adopted in 1975, which requires that a “fetus shall be disposed of in a humane manner.” Specifically:

  • All three Ohio Planned Parenthood affiliates have sent fetal remains to companies which disposed of the fetuses in landfills.
  • Additionally, the Planned Parenthood facility in Bedford Heights stated it uses only one company for disposal. However, that company stated to investigators it does not accept fetal remains for disposal as a corporate policy.

This is yet another black eye to Planned Parenthood, who just last week were saved once again by President Obama from being defunded.  Planned Parenthood remains under an investigation by several congressional committees due to the release of videos exposing an unsavory abortion business whereas  altering the position of babies during abortion allegedly took place.

We will continue to update as we have more information.
