Recommendations for Stewardship of Taxpayer Funds
1) The Panel found that Planned Parenthood affiliates and clinics have repeatedly neglected
their fiduciary duty requiring good stewardship of federal taxpayer dollars through the
following: careless management and failed compliance with Medicaid billing procedures;
violating federal laws and regulations pertaining to patient consent and the privacy rights
of their patients; changing the method of abortion to increase procurement of fetal tissue
for which they received a per tissue payment; and a general disinterest in clinical
integrity. The Panel recommends that Planned Parenthood lose all federal funding,
including reimbursements for Medicaid services. Further, grants no longer available to
Planned Parenthood should be awarded to healthcare providers that provide
comprehensive preventive healthcare for their patients, and that do not perform abortions,
if the pregnancy is the result of an act of rape or incest;
in the case where a woman suffers from a physical disorder, physical
injury, or physical illness, including a life-endangering physical
condition caused by or arising from the pregnancy itself, that would,
as certified by a physician, place the woman in danger of death unless
an abortion is performed.
approximately three or four infants would show signs of life. This typically
happened when infants were extracted from the cervix in a breech position. At
times, the infant would slide completely out because of the extent of the dilation
caused by the laminaria administered to patients. In all such cases,
would terminate their lives. The signs of life they exhibited would include
movement of the stomach as the infant breathed or movement of the toes or
would terminate the lives of these infants, Employee #1 further alleges based on
those incidents she witnessed, by any of several methods, including the following:
snipping the infant’s spinal cord with scissors; cutting the neck with Sopher forceps or similar instruments; twisting the infant’s head; using forceps, other instruments, or his finger to crush the “soft spot” of the infant’s head, or crushing it by the same means through its stomach; or inserting his finger down its throat. If the infant’s cranium was coming out first, he would usually use his index finger to puncture its head, but if it was coming out feet first, he would instead insert an instrument in the back of the infant’s head.3
Employee #1 also alleged that “ performed numerous abortions during the third
trimester in cases that did not involve any serious threats to the mother’s or the infant’s health.”
Employee #2 asserted, “As long as the patients had the cash, he was going to do it past the 25
weeks.”10 Four photographs identified by Employee #1 and Employee #3 as taken in the
sterilization room of the Women’s Pavilion in 2012 depict the remains of infants clearly in their
third trimester when they were allegedly terminated by .11 According to Employee #1,
the tears in the neck line visible in the photos are “inconsistent with” terminations done “while
the infant[s were] entirely inside the uterus.”
12 Thus, besides being late-term abortions, they were
likely either partial-birth abortions or homicides committed after full delivery.
Employee #1 and two other employees at the clinic, Employee #3 and Employee #4, additionally
allege that the doctor regularly falsified sonogram results to misrepresent the gestational age of
the fetus. Some sonograms, they maintain, would be falsified to “overstate the gestational age of
the fetus in order to overbill customers.”
In other cases, according to Employee #1 and Employee #3, “sonograms would be falsified to
conceal the advanced gestational age of the fetus beyond the legal limit in Texas.”
14 Employee #1
I have witnessed this happen in cases involving fetuses as old as 28 weeks.
would typically tell his ultrasound technician in cases involving fetuses
beyond a certain gestational age to allow him to perform the ultrasound himself;
he would then bring the patient an ultrasound picture showing another fetus at the
gestational age he was misrepresenting to the patient.

Options). Referred to the Attorney General of New Mexico.
2 & 3) The Panel conducted a forensic accounting analysis of StemExpress’ limited production
and determined that it may have been profiting from the sale of baby body parts. Referral sent to

of the baby body parts. The Orange County District Attorney has filed a lawsuit and the Panel
sent a supplemental referral.
8) The Panel learned that Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast may have violated both Texas Law and

Oh look, a bunch of conservative Republicans got together to spout their opinions.
I see a lot of "may have" and "might have" and "could have" in there.
