Planned Parenthood: Video latest in 10 years' harassment
WASHINGTON - Planned Parenthood says a secret video released last week by an anti-abortion group is a fraud and part of a decade long pattern of illegal harassment aimed at prohibiting abortion and intimidating women and doctors.
The video was released last week by the Center for Medical Progress. It shows a top Planned Parenthood official graphically discussing how the group sometimes provides tissue from aborted fetuses for medical research.
The center says the conversation was recorded last year.
In a letter Monday to the House Energy and Commerce Committee, Planned Parenthood says center official David Daleiden is behind the video.
Planned Parenthood says Daleiden has secretly recorded its staff and patients at least 65 times, and then used heavily edited tapes to make false charges.
