Planned Parenthood

Hoping to clear its name, Planned Parenthood has released an independent study that alleges a series of hidden videos of the group’s executives were altered and that Planned Parenthood has not profited from its fetal tissue collection program in other states. Dawn Leguens with Planned Parenthood’s national office said through analysis provided by the research firm Fusion GPS, they are now able to prove the Center for Medical Progress doctored the videos before posting them online. 

Evangelical voters are courted every presidential election by Republicans, especially in Iowa. But this year, they could have an even larger impact.

That's because a slew of Southern states are holding primaries on the same day in March of next year, just a month after Iowa votes. And one candidate is making a bold early effort to win them over — Texas Sen. Ted Cruz.

From Texas Standard:

Planned Parenthood is under scrutiny over their alleged involvement in fetal tissue research. The Center for Medical Progress, an anti-abortion group, has now released three different secretly recorded videos of Planned Parenthood employees discussing fetal tissue. While the videos don’t provide any concrete evidence that Planned Parenthood is illegally profiting from fetal tissue donation, critics say the video certainly raises questions about how fetal tissue donation is done.
