IL Planned Parenthood uses tax dollars to win elections, acquire more tax dollars

Planned Parenthood Federation of America has been the focus of an ongoing undercover investigation by Center for Medical Progress, whose staffers posed as individuals interested in procuring fetal tissue and organs for research.

Thus far, they've released nine videos with Planned Parenthood officials and insiders explaining how babies are aborted, how their body parts are distributed for medical research, and how they profit from the transactions.
