Ga. Investigation Finds Planned Parenthood Follows State Law

Aug 13, 2015

The Georgia Department of Public Health's review of Planned Parenthood is in, and it's found that all five Georgia clinics either bury or cremate fetal remains, as they're required to by state law.  

"After conducting an investigation into the five licensed abortion facilities in our state, I have concluded that each has proper procedures in place for burial or internment of remains," Brenda Fitzgerald, the commissioner of the Georgia Department of Public Health, wrote in a letter to Gov. Nathan Deal.

Deal directed the agency to investigate Georgia affiliates of Planned Parenthood after the national organization was accused by the Center of Medical Progress of trying to sell tissue and organs from aborted fetuses.
