FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Information about the Heavily Edited, Secretly Recorded Video
Planned Parenthood Southwest Ohio Region does not participate in any fetal tissue donation programs. Donation or selling of fetal tissue is not allowed under Ohio law.
Some Planned Parenthood affiliates in other parts of the country where donations are allowed do help patients who want to donate tissue for scientific research, with full consent from patients and under the highest ethical and legal standards.
The group that released this heavily-edited video is opposed to Planned Parenthood’s mission and services. These groups have made similar false accusations in the past. They have been widely discredited and their claims fall apart on closer examination, just as they do in this case.
