The following comes from an August 28 LifeSiteNews article by Drew Belsky:

Sacramento – Unlike over a dozen other states, California is resisting calls to investigate Planned Parenthood.

On Monday, Democrats in the Golden State’s Joint Legislative Audit Committee rejected a request, made by Republican assemblywoman Melissa Melendez and twelve other lawmakers, to audit the national abortion giant.  Melendez assured her colleagues that she had no intention to defund Planned Parenthood but insisted that the scandal involving Planned Parenthood’s harvesting and sale of aborted babies’ body parts demands state action.

“What I don’t understand,” Melendez said, “is why someone would oppose looking into the allegations that have been made and assuring the public.”

The California assembly rejected the request for an audit in spite of the fact that the majority of people filing to be heard before the committee were in favor of one.  Democrat state senator Connie Leyva condemned the audit as a “witch hunt” and noted that scrutinizing Planned Parenthood’s books “may ultimately hurt the countless women and men that rely on [Planned Parenthood’s] vital health services every day.”

Leyva also claimed that an audit of Planned Parenthood, which receives over $200 million every year in California state funds, would cost $300,000 in taxpayer dollars – a prohibitive expense, per Leyva.

Assemblywoman Melendez expressed shock following the Audit Committee’s decision, calling her Democrat counterparts “political puppets.”

    This is absolutely ridiculous…and unacceptable. The government should encourage transparency. The sale of body parts is barbaric and disrespectful of the human body. God save us all. What is happening in our society is disturbing. Look at what the abandonment of faith in God has wrought: single parent families, decline in moral values, increase in criminality, drug and sex abuse, poverty, despair, greed, arrogance and death. Surely, we are going to reap what we have sown.

  2. Sinator Leyva, Only witches don’t like witch hunts! They don’t want to be exposed of all the evil they are committing. Those that try to cover it up and defend them like you and the majority of the rest of the California Legistlature are only showing your true colors, how evil you all are and aren’t out to protect the public, you are more interested in killing innocent souls. How many of you really believe you are going to heaven? or is that all fairy tale to you in the Legistlature. After you all die in your pride with your accomplise to murder records, you will no longer have an opportunity to repent. The firey pains of hell last for eternity.

    Whenever someone has something to hide, it is because it will do damage to their reputation. The Democrat party hides the fact that it started the KKK, is the chief funding group for Planned Parenthood, is using Mexican Immigrants to keep itself in power but ultimately will ignore the plight of illegal immigrants, like it ignored the plight of the black community. It is very typical that a Mexican American politician would hide these facts in order to continue to support a policy of Eugenics, rather than to support the people that she represents. Sad, but the facts are the facts. Democrats are the Number One Racist Party of America.

  4. When are Californians (and others) going to stop voting for those who support Intrinsic Evils: of Abortion, Contraception, Euthanasia, Sex change operations with hormones for life – all at taxpayer expense.

    These are DEMOCRATS ! Look at the CA State Platform for 2014. These are their own publically stated goals.

    Anyone else in this state tired of the public safety and the decency of state funded projects being ignored by our elected representatives?Planned Parenthood is simply not to be trusted with funds, with lives, with our daughters…

  6. Planned Parenthood could strangle a puppy (or a child) on live television and the Democrats would still support and shill for them. The Democratic Party no longer have any values other then towing the Party Line and supporting anyone on The Left.
