Planned Parenthood Attacked in Second Video on Fetal Tissue Use

An anti-abortion group on Tuesday released a second video it said showed that Planned Parenthood sells aborted fetal tissue, repeating allegations raised last week in a video that quickly spurred government investigations. Both secretly recorded videos were produced by the Center for Medical Progress in California with actors posing as buyers for a biological company. They feature interviews with different officials at the non-profit reproductive health organization, with edited excerpts appearing in the versions widely circulating online. Planned Parenthood Federation of America said in a statement "the video was heavily edited in attempt to support false and outrageous claims," and it denied any improper activity. The organization has said it does not profit from fetal tissue donation and only receives payment for associated costs, which is legally permissible.
