Planned Parenthood President Grilled at House Hearing

posted on September 30, 2015

CNN’s Tom LoBianco reports that a “heated and emotional” congressional hearing took place on Tuesday with testimony from Planned Parenthood President Cecile Richards. Republicans want to cut the organization’s funding after edited videos surfaced that allegedly showed Planned Parenthood officials discussing fetal tissue sales. Richards testified that the videos are “a deliberate and systematic effort by (CMP Director) David Daleiden and other opponents of safe and legal abortion to infiltrate our health centers, try to entrap our staff into potentially illegal conduct, and create discredited, doctored videos designed to smear Planned Parenthood.”
