• Planned Parenthood President: Videos Were Entrapment

    Planned Parenthood president Cecile Richards insisted Tuesday in her testimony before a House committee that her organization did not break any laws and are the subject of entrapment,  despite the numerous videos exposing the abortion giant’s employees discussing the black marketing of late term aborted fetal organs.

    Richards maintained that Planned Parenthood is being targeted because of “deceptively edited videos released by a group that is dedicated to making abortion illegal” and called the “outrageous accusations” based on those videos “offensive and categorically untrue.”

    Richards struggled to defend the need for hundreds of millions of dollars in new federal funding every year.

    She claimed the “harassment” of women seeking abortions “has only gotten worse” since the videos, but said her organization’s services provide critical health services — going well beyond abortion — for women across the country.

    “The federal funding that Planned Parenthood [receives] allows our doctors and clinicians at health centers to prove birth control, cancer screenings and treatment for sexually transmitted infections,” she said, adding that stripping federal money from the group would leave women without those kinds of services.
