A pro-life organization is anticipating the possibility that Europe may soon be ending its relationship with Planned Parenthood.
The abortion business has lately been the target of several undercover videos showing staff discussing the sale of aborted baby organs and tissue, and Joseph Meaney of Human Life International tells OneNewsNow the controversy is not limited to the United States.
"It kind of shows, I think, the globalization of the pro-life movement, because Planned Parenthood's troubles in the USA are turning into international Planned Parenthood Federation's troubles all over the world," Meaney offers. "The European Commission now has been asked to investigate Planned Parenthood in Europe based on the fact that Planned Parenthood Federation of America has been caught doing all these things here in the USA."
A member of the European Parliament, Miroslav Mikolasik, filed the complaint with the Commission in part because the Commission provides funds for the international abortion provider for Africa.
"I think come September this is going to be a big issue," the pro-lifer predicts. "And I think if the pressure continues to build in the USA -- now there are three states in America that have defunded Planned Parenthood -- I think that in Europe they're going to start to feel the pressure as well not to be too closely associated with this organization that is scandal-ridden."
Human Life International members in 20 European countries will be urging support for the investigation, and Meaney is traveling to Brussels to talk with European leaders.
