‘I DEMAND AN INVESTIGATION’: Sen. James Lankford Wants Answers on D.C. Abortion Scandal

Lankford says he’s “not letting it go.”

Senator James Lankford (R-OK) is demanding an investigation into the D.C. abortion clinic where five possibly viable aborted babies were found. So far, D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser has done nothing to look into the tragedy.

“I demanded an investigation from D.C. Mayor Bowser, the D.C. police, and the Department of Justice into the deaths of the five babies whose lives were stolen through gruesome late-term abortion procedures, potentially violating federal law,” Lankford told The Daily Wire.

“Unsurprisingly, my request was met with a shrug,” he said. “Some in our nation’s capital may not care about the value of every child, but I believe every child is valuable. I’m not giving up on these precious lives lost or on the refusal to investigate how their lives were taken.”

“I’m not letting this go,” Lankford said.

From the Daily Wire:

Lankford led Republican lawmakers in demanding that D.C. authorities determine how the babies died by preserving the baby bodies as evidence and performing autopsies.

Lawmakers have also asked that the Department of Justice investigate whether the abortionist who ended the babies’ lives violated federal law by performing partial-birth abortions while the babies were still alive or by allowing the babies to die after they were born alive.

D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser finally weighed in on the matter late last Friday in a response to Lankford, but the mayor did not address calls for investigations or autopsies.
