He still has plenty of questions.
The word from Texas Lieutenant Governor Dan Patrick in the wake of the indictments issued by a Houston Grand Jury against undercover filmmakers trying to show Planned Parenthood was selling body parts harvested from aborted fetuses.
“To not investigate them (Planned Parenthood) would be a dereliction of your duty” Patrick told KTSA News, adding those filmmakers do have a duty to obey the law.
“Undercover investigation has been done by journalists for a long time, and when you do that you have to follow the law. The Grand Jury apparently felt they didn’t” Patrick said, adding “With that said, the State is going to continue and the Senate is going to continue–along with Attorney General (Ken) Paxton, Governor (Greg) Abbott, and myself–we’re going to continue with our investigation of the Planned Parenthood centers.”
That includes the Legislature passing any new laws.
Patrick also said Planned Parenthood’s own words have raised some of the questions that still don’t have answers.
“If Planned Parenthood is performing abortions, why are they storing baby parts to begin with? There’s a question I think needs to be asked. Since they’ve admitted they’re no longer going to store them… why are you storing them?” Patrick asked.
