A Montana senator is calling for action on an undercover video that claims Planned Parenthood sells the body parts of aborted babies.
The video was posted on YouTube by the center for medical progress.
According to Troy Newman, the president of Operation Rescue, the video shows a Planned Parenthood doctor admitting to using partial-birth abortion procedures to keep organs of fetuses intact.
U.S. Senator Steve Daines says this is the second video released and it can't be ignored.
“Once is inexcusable but twice is unconscionable behavior on the part of Planned Parenthood,” Daines said in a phone interview. “And I think there needs to be a full investigation into Planned Parenthood’s actions whether they are breaking federal laws by harvesting and selling baby organs.”
But Amber Williams, the chair of the pro-choice organization the Susan Wicklund Fund, says the senator's actions are about politics.
“Honestly I’m disappointed that Senator Daines seems to find it important to spend federal money investigating something that is completely falsified and is a… extreme anti-choice maneuver to remove access for medical services that women need,” said Williams.
So far there has been no federal investigation.
