• California AG Will Investigate Ghoulish Planned Parenthood Videos, But It’s NOT What You Think

    California Attorney General Kamala Harris does not to plan on reviewing Planned Parenthood in the wake of two undercover videos released by anti-abortion activists aimed at discrediting the organization’s procedures for selling aborted baby body parts to researchers.

    Rather, Harris announced Friday she plans to investigate if any laws were broken by the anti-abortion group Center for Medical Progress in the filming of the videos.

    She said she will use her office’s authority to regulate the non-profit organization to see if the organization that made the videos violated registration or reporting requirements, or broke any other rules.

    “We will carefully review the allegations raised in your letter to determine whether there were any violations of California law,” Harris said in a letter in response to four Democratic members of Congress who had requested the investigation.

    She said her office will probe “allegations that individuals impersonated corporate officials from a fake biologics company, resulting in the release of secretly filmed videos of Planned Parenthood physicians without their consent.”

    The videos shows Planned Parenthood medical director, Dr. Mary Gatter, in Southern California, meeting with people posing as potential buyers of intact fetal limbs and organs as she discusses the cost of the specimens.

    Harris, a Democrat, plans to run for the U.S. Senate in 2016.
