Suit: P. Parenthood Illegally Giving Abortion Drug

Ad Feedback

Planned Parenthood of northern New England is being accused of illegally distributing abortion drugs without a state contract or a licensed pharmacist.

The Alliance Defense Fund filed a complaint with the New Hampshire Board of Pharmacy Tuesday.

The legal group is acting on behalf of New Hampshire Right to Life. Attorney Michael Tierney told CBN News he believes it's a clear cut case.

"No matter where a person stands on abortion, everyone should agree that Planned Parenthood has to play by the same rules as everyone else," Tierney said.

"In this case, that means it must obey state laws that say only licensed pharmacists may distribute prescription drugs when a clinic is not under contract with the New Hampshire Department of Health and Human Services," he said.

The state DHHS canceled its contract with Planned Parenthood last year, but the clinics have continued to distribute drugs, including those that induce abortion, according to Tierney.

LifeNews.com reported that the complaint provides evidence that Planned Parenthood officials knew the clinics were in violation of state statute by distributing drugs without a licensed pharmacist.

The ADF claims New Hampshire's six Planned Parenthood clinics dispense $4,000 worth of birth control and abortion-causing drugs every day.
