A new undercover video released by opponents of Planned Parenthood has graphic depictions of a technician sorting through the tissue collected after an abortion. The graphic tapes — three released so far — have created a political outcry and calls for defunding Planned Parenthood from GOP presidential contenders, in Congress, and in some states. Congressional panels have also announced investigations into Planned Parenthood practices. The latest tape also includes footage of a physician in a laboratory talking with an actor posing as a purchaser of tissue samples. “I think the per-item [pricing] works a little better, just because we can see how much we can get out of it,” she said. The group that made the videos, which calls itself the Center for Medical Progress, identified the physician as Dr. Savita Ginde, who is vice president and medical director of Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountains in Denver.
