Reid Defends Planned Parenthood Despite ‘Politically Motivated’ Videos

Tuesday, Minority Leader Sen Harry Reid (D-NV)  defended Planned Parenthood, which has come under intense criticism over the release of recent videos showing their doctors discussing the sale of fetal tissue.

Reid said, “Human fetal tissue research has been critically important for biomedical research for a long, long time … These politically motivated videos raise some questions, but nothing I’ve seen indicates Planned Parenthood violated federal laws. These edited videos should not take away from the important work Planned Parenthood does on behalf of women. All organizations need to be abiding by the law and if they don’t, it needs to be looked into, and that’s what is happening right now.”
