Kansas Governor Calls for Investigation into Planned Parenthood

Kansas Governor Sam Brownback is calling for an investigation into the abortion provider Planned Parenthood after the release of two videos that have caught national headlines. Brownback wants to know if Kansas abortion providers are selling tissue from aborted fetuses.
National abortion opponents have released two secretly recorded videos. They don’t include any Kansas Planned Parenthood workers. The videos allegedly show Planned Parenthood officials talking about harvesting or selling organs from fetuses for medical research. Brownback says that does not “respect the culture of life most Kansans want.”
Planned Parenthood has said the videos are heavily edited and the organization is working within legal and ethical guidelines.
Planned Parenthood of Kansas and Mid-Missouri says they don’t take part in any tissue donation programs and they say the governor’s call for an investigation is “political grandstanding.”
