Pro-lifers: PPFA head fails to satisfy concerns

By Tom Strode - Posted at Baptist Press:

WASHINGTON (BP) -- Congressional testimony by Planned Parenthood's president failed to satisfy the concerns of lawmakers and pro-life advocates in the wake of undercover videos providing evidence the organization trades in baby body parts.

Cecile Richards, head of Planned Parenthood Federation of America (PPFA), denounced charges -- apparently of unethical or illegal activity by her organization -- based on the videos as "offensive and categorically untrue" in a House of Representatives hearing Tuesday (Sept. 29).

The hearing before the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee followed the release of 10 secretly recorded videos that show various Planned Parenthood officials discussing the sale of organs from aborted children. The videos recorded and released by the Center for Medical Progress (CMP) also display PPFA employees acknowledging their willingness to manipulate the abortion procedure to preserve body parts for sale and use. In addition, the videos include evidence of the dissection of live babies outside the womb to remove organs.
