HOUSTON - Planned Parenthood is on the hot seat. Video posted by the Center for Medical Progress, an anti-abortion group, shows what the group claims is a Planned Parenthood executive discussing the harvesting and sale of fetus organs.
The video was from hidden cameras, shot by actors posing as employees of a human biological company..
Anti-abortionists are fueling their agenda with this controversial video, saying this is proof Planned Parenthood is profiting from the sale of organs and is unethical in the ways it harvests them.
Planned Parenthood replied, "A well-funded group established for the purpose of damaging Planned Parenthood`s mission and services has promoted a heavily edited, secretly recorded videotape that falsely portrays Planned Parenthood`s participation in tissue donation programs that support lifesaving scientific research,"
No matter your thoughts on abortion, the video has people fired up.
Jennifer Dragt said, "Using abortion to profit, I feel is wrong."
"This is an agenda, that once again is being pushed by the right side, the social conservatives and really I just wish everybody would stay out of everyone else`s business," added Rachel Denny.
Stacia Emerson explained, "I feel like it`s wrong. That`s a dead child that a mother just aborted. It`s wrong."
Jennifer Mellott said, "It`s just a story misinterpreted, I mean someone is going to take a little piece and interpret it how they want."
To no one's surprise, several Texas politicians have wedged into the controversy. Governor Greg Abbott wasted no time, announcing an investigation into Planned Parenthood's alleged practice.
Presidential hopefuls Rick Perry and Ted Cruz have chimed in as well by criticizing Planned Parenthood..
Does it look bad for Planned Parenthood? Depends on if you believe everything you see on the internet.
