Ohio AG Mike DeWine to open investigation into Planned Parenthood after video surfaces


COLUMBUS, Ohio (WCMH)- After video surfaced of a Planned Parenthood official discussing how to preserve the internal organs of an aborted fetus for research firms, Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine has opened an investigation into the non-profit organization.

According to DeWine the investigation will center on whether Planned Parenthood is profiting from the sale of aborted babies.

“Because registered non-profit corporations operate three Planned Parenthood abortion facilities in Ohio, those entities and the directors have a fiduciary duty under Ohio law to ensure their organization does not support illegal activity,” DeWine said in a statement.

The Charitable Law Section of the Attorney General’s office will be conducting the investigation.
