Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton announced his office has launched an investigation into Planned Parenthood following the publication of a video showing an official discussing the sale of baby body parts.
The announcement came July 15, a day after anti-abortion activists released the video of Dr. Deborah Nucatola, PP’s senior director of medical services, discussing the value of aborted fetuses over lunch with activists posing as buyers for a biologics company.
“The Office of the Attorney General has launched an official investigation into Planned Parenthood following the release of a video that details the organization’s calculated slaughter of human babies to maximize the available body parts they plan to sell,” said Paxton in a written statement.
“The video offers a glimpse into an organization that knowingly and deliberately destroys human life to further its bottom line.”
The footage was shot last year and the video was produced by the Center for Medical Progress in California.
