  • VA GOP Chairman Whitbeck renews call for an investigation of Planned Parenthood and demands Democrats denounce Planned Parenthood

    Republican Party of Virginia Chairman John Whitbeck renewed his call for Governor Terry McAuliffe and Attorney General Mark Herring to investigate Virginia’s Planned Parenthood chapters after a third video was released showing graphic images of infant organ harvesting and Planned Parenthood officials discussing how to maximize samples collected from aborted children.

    “The latest videos are truly shocking to the conscience,” stated Chairman John Whitbeck. “I do not understand how Governor McAuliffe can be ‘disturbed’ by these videos but not be willing to order his PAC to return funds received from Planned Parenthood.

    “At the very least, our Governor and Attorney General need to launch an investigation into the organization’s practices in Virginia so our citizens can be assured that nothing like what is depicted in the videos is happening in our Commonwealth. Our leaders in the House of Delegates, three different Congressional Committees and multiple state Attorney Generals have called for an investigation or are actually investigating Planned Parenthood,” said Whitbeck. “Even the Democrat Governor of Pennsylvania is launching a review of Planned Parenthood facilities in his state to ensure they are not selling harvested organs. Why won’t Virginia Democrat elected officials do the same?”

    “Finally, I call on every Democrat elected official and candidate running for office to denounce Planned Parenthood. The practices in these videos are barbaric and, simply put, evil. For anyone to continue to proudly stand by Planned Parenthood now is indefensible.”

    Notes:

    • Terry McAuliffe’s inaugural committee received $5,000 from Planned Parenthood of Virginia.
    • Mark Herring’s inaugural committee received $1,250 from Planned Parenthood of Virginia.
    • Democrat Governor of Pennsylvania Tom Wolf announced a review of Planned Parenthood facilities in his state on July 24, 2015.
  • Young Republicans Call for Commonwealth to Investigate Planned Parenthood and Affiliates

    In response to recent videos that have come to light featuring Planned Parenthood executives detailing the harvest and sale of aborted baby organs the Young Republican Federation of Virginia, led by Chairman Dan Webb, have called for Attorney General Mark Herring to begin a full investigation of Virginia’s Planned Parenthood affiliates.

    Along with this call, Chairman Webb issued the following statement:

    “Never in my life have I seen a more stomach churning display of callousness. The actions that Planned Parenthood undertakes have always been reprehensible and now the veneer of ‘women’s health’ has been decidedly cracked with the exposure of recent comments showing a complete lack of human decency by top officials in this organization. Not only is Planned Parenthood involved in a trade as reprehensible as the harvesting and selling of fetal organs but they cross a clear line in medical ethics and endanger the well-being of their patients by adjusting their abortion techniques to meet the requests of organ buyers.

    “Planned Parenthood has spent millions of dollars trying to convince people that what they are aborting are not actually babies but ‘blobs of tissue’ yet these videos have revealed that they are killing infants developed enough for them to remove and sell specific functioning organs.

    “The Millennial generation is an increasingly pro-life generation, and a generation weary of the Democratic Party’s rigidly ideological embrace of abortion on demand and its knee-jerk defense of pro-abortion groups. It is time for Attorney General Mark Herring to stand up and investigate this organization.”

    Daniel Webb has served as Chairman of the Young Republican Federation of Virginia since 2015, previously serving as the organization’s 1st Vice Chairman starting in 2013.

  • RPV Chairman Whitbeck joins call for investigating Planned Parenthood and demands Governor to return donations

    RPV STATEMENT

    RICHMOND, VA – Republican Party of Virginia Chairman John Whitbeck joined with Republican House of Delegates leaders to call for Governor Terry McAuliffe to investigate Virginia’s Planned Parenthood chapters after video surfaced allegedly showing Planned Parenthood officials referencing performing illegal partial birth abortions to better preserve children’s organs for sale.

    “The procedures and practices being discussed by the doctors on film are deeply disturbing,” stated Chairman John Whitbeck. “Despite the opposition on the far left, partial birth abortions are illegal in this country. The very fact that those officials would openly discuss performing partial abortions and go on to talk about selling body parts and organs demands an investigation from our Governor and the Attorney General. I know this will be a hard call for the Governor since he received nearly half a million dollars in campaign help from Planned Parenthood, but these allegations rise above partisan politics.”

    “Further, I call on Terry McAuliffe and Mark Herring to donate funds equal to those given to their inaugural committees by Planned Parenthood of Virginia to charity not involved in the abortion and infanticide industry,” said Whitbeck.

    Fact Sheet:

    • The Partial-Birth Abortion Ban Act of 2003 banned performing partial birth abortions in the United States and was upheld by the Supreme Court in 2007 in Gonzales v. Carhart.
    • Terry McAuliffe received $490,398 in in-kind contributions from Planned Parenthood Action Fund over the course of the 2013 election cycle, according to VPAP.org
    • Terry McAuliffe’s inaugural committee received a $5,000 from Planned Parenthood of Virginia
    • Mark Herring’s inaugural committee received $1,250 from Planned Parenthood of Virginia
