Planned Parenthood President: Videos a ‘Smear Campaign’

Planned Parenthood President Cecile Richards faced off with House Republicans during a congressional hearing Tuesday amid threats to cut the organization’s federal funding. Richards said she was proud of the group’s work and called videos secretly recorded by a right-wing group “doctored” and part of a “smear campaign.” She also pointed out that most of Planned Parenthood’s work has nothing to do with fetal-tissue research.
