Another amazing find from Operation Rescue shows the absolute bias that will be used in any investigation of a Planned Parenthood which is part of an alleged illegal baby parts harvesting operation.

From their report:

    It has been learned that a prosecutor in the Harris County District Attorney’s office that is currently investigating a Houston Planned Parenthood abortion clinic for selling aborted baby parts, serves on the Board of Directors for Planned Parenthood.

    Lauren Reeder is a prosecutor in the Harris County District Attorney’s criminal family law division. She apparently notified District Attorney Devon Anderson of her role with Planned Parenthood last week.

    Reeder is listed as a non-compensated “Director” on the 990 Tax Form for 2014 filed by Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast.

    Last week, Operation Rescue called on Anderson to appoint a special prosecutor to oversee the criminal investigation into Planned Parenthood.

In a statement released Friday, Harris County District Attorney Devon Anderson said one of her assistant district attorneys disclosed that she is member of the Gulf Coast agency’s board of directors.

She made the disclosure in order to be transparent,” Anderson said in the release.

She added that she remained confident her office could conduct an “unbiased, fact driven investigation” of the allegations.

Anderson oversaw a previous abortion-related grand jury investigation of Houston abortionist Douglas Karpen after Operation Rescue released evidence in the form of photos and witness testimony that abortions babies were being born alive during abortions and intentionally killed by twisting their necks.

Anderson told the Houston Chronicle that Reeder would not be involved in the PPGC investigation.

“If at any time in the future, reliable and credible information is brought to my attention that would question our ability to continue to perform a fair, thorough and independent investigation of this matter due to her board membership, I will revisit the issue of seeking the appointment of an independent prosecutor and act accordingly.”

Reeder’s LinkedIn page reads in part:

    As a member and former co-chair of Planned Parenthood Young Leaders, I worked to cultivate the next generation of donors and community leaders committed to the mission of Planned Parenthood through advocacy opportunities, monthly happy hours, and annual fundraisers.
