Undercover video producers debunk Planned Parenthood's defense

The Center for Medical Progress, which has released a series of damaging undercover videos showing Planned Parenthood’s involvement in the sale of fetal tissues, has now sent a letter to Congress, rebutting a Planned Parenthood defense of its policies.

“The Planned Parenthood report contains multiple erroneous statements and conclusions, yet by its own words finds no ‘substantive video manipulation’ and ‘no evidence of audio manipulation,’ the pro-life group observed in a press release.

In his letter to Congress, the Center for Medical Progress pointed out that Planned Parenthood had acknowledged that some clinics “may ‘adjust’ abortion procedures in order to obtain higher quality fetal tissue specimens.” That would be a violation of federal law, the group notes. Explaining the process of harvesting organs from aborted babies, the Center says that “this is a new revenue stream off of fetal tissue with no real cost to Planned Parenthood, and thus a criminal profit.”
