This law -
42 USC § 289g–1 - Research on transplantation of fetal tissue
it allows for recovering costs of fetal material used for research IE allows the company performing the abortion to charge for the abortion / harvesting of body parts to go to the research company, who pays planned parenthood / affiliate. What I am pointing out is there is no set guidelines for cost so the head of a planned parenthood / planned parenthood affiliate is able to abuse the system by setting outrageous cost recoupment in order to profit from the sale.
Thats the issue and for some reason you guys are not understanding that.
The other concern is planned parenthood / affiliates intentionally counseling those thinking about abortions to go through with it and pushing them into donating the material for research without disclosing planned parenthood / affiliate would profit from the sale.
As for not breaking the law planned parenthood in 2 states are under investigation for performing abortions outside of the established trimester restrictions.
By engaging in a practice of selling the body parts as opposed to donating them and by charging excessive amounts for recovery fees.
3: The term “valuable consideration” does not include reasonable payments associated with the transportation, implantation, processing, preservation, quality control, or storage of human fetal tissue.
Secondly, as I also pointed out, planned parenthood is an umbrella organization and covers more than just planned parenthood facilities.
