Today, the Center for Medical Progress released another video apparently showing a Planned Parenthood official discussing the ethics and price of selling parts of aborted fetuses. The video shows excerpts of a conversation with Mary Gatter, medical director of Planned Parenthood of Los Angeles. Last week, the organization released a similar undercover video of a different Planned Parenthood executive discussing, more graphically, the same things. And like last week, The Center for Medical Progress again posted what they claim is an unedited, full version of the video to YouTube.
Last week’s video prompted the U.S. Congress to open investigations into Planned Parenthood, which is the country’s largest provider of abortions. In addition, Texas republican governor Greg Abbott and Missouri’s democrat attorney general Chris Koster both announced that their respective states will also investigate Planned Parenthood’s practices within their states. Planned Parenthood seems to chalk up the videos to a smear campaign, maintaining that the original video is misleading. Yesterday, the organization sent a letter to Congress saying that subsequent videos would be similarly misleading.
