Planned Parenthood has filed a federal lawsuit against the anti-abortion group that released secretly recorded and controversial videos accusing the women's health provider of trafficking fetal tissue.
Planned Parenthood claims anti-abortion activists at the Center for Medical Progress posed as a tissue procurement agency to gain access to closed conferences with its staff in hopes of catching illegal acts on video.
The result was a series of videos allegedly showing staff and doctors discussing the donation of fetal tissue for medical research. The Center for Medical Progress, or CMP, claimed it was evidence the group was "selling baby parts."
