Americans United for Life cheers on Stearns’ Planned Parenthood investigation

Responding to congressional opposition to an investigation of Planned Parenthood Federation of America (PPFA), the national anti-abortion rights group that instigated the investigation is using donor solicitations, blogs and a new petition to help drive the investigation forward.

On Wednesday, Americans United for Life (AUL) launched the “We Support the Investigation of Planned Parenthood” online petition, which asks Rep. Cliff Stearns (R-Fla.) — who launched the investigation based on a report AUL drafted in July — to stick to his guns, despite claims from colleagues that the Planned Parenthood investigation is politically motivated.

An excerpt from AUL’s petition letter:

Dear Rep. Cliff Stearns,

Thank you for your efforts to begin an investigation of the Planned Parenthood abortion business. As taxpayers, we are very concerned about having our tax dollars go towards an organization that has been rocked by scandal and is the largest abortion provider in the United States.

[...]

We are disappointed that your efforts to investigate these issues are facing opposition from Planned Parenthood and its supporters in Congress, like Reps. Henry Waxman and Diana DeGette, who are working aggressively to halt your probe. Please stand up to these efforts to silence your investigation.

We ask that you stand strong in your effort to make Planned Parenthood comply with your requests for documents related to its financial dealings, use of taxpayer funds, and how it reports on teenage girls who are victimized by sex traffickers and sexual abusers. Do not let them back down in furnishing these documents to Congress so the American people can know about the actions of this organization that receives $363 million in taxpayer dollars every year.

As The American Independent sister site The Florida Independent reported, Planned Parenthood and representatives in Congress are fighting the investigation. Among PPFA defenders are Rep. Jan Schakowsky (D-Ill.), who is calling the investigation “needless and politically motivated,” and Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.), who recently said Stearns’ investigation is a “frivolous” and an “abusive witch hunt by Republicans” that is “an unconscionable waste of taxpayer dollars, and harassment of a trusted healthcare provider for millions of women and families in Connecticut and across the country.”

Meanwhile, Planned Parenthood is floating its own petition, as part of its “I Stand With Planned Parenthood” campaign:

Dear Representative Stearns:

[...] Your effort to discredit, damage, and weaken Planned Parenthood will only harm the women and families who rely on Planned Parenthood health centers for essential preventive health care. Focusing on attacking Planned Parenthood when millions of women lack access to basic, affordable health care just shows how far out of touch Congress is with Americans’ priorities.

I stand with Planned Parenthood just as they have stood with millions of American women. I demand that you abandon your baseless investigation, and do so now.
