5th secret Planned Parenthood video deals with ‘fully intact’ fetuses
AUSTIN, Texas — An anti-abortion group has released its fifth undercover video alleging fetal organ sales that activists say was shot inside a Houston Planned Parenthood clinic.
The Center for Medical Progress’ footage shows people pretending to be from a company that procures fetal tissue for research touring the Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast clinic.
What they’re shown includes recently collected fetuses including a five month developed twin.
The Director of Research for Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast, Melissa Farrell, tells the person shooting the video she can sometimes procure intact fetuses.
Gov. Greg Abbott called the video “repulsive and unconscionable.”
Tuesday’s video is the fifth the center has recently released, but the first from Texas.
It appears consistent with footage Planned Parenthood previously announced might have been secretly recorded.
Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton is leading a state investigation of Planned Parenthood prompted by previous videos, and called the latest “simply appalling.”
Paxton was recently indicted on felony securities fraud charges.
