WH: 'Fraudulent' Planned Parenthood Videos Edited by 'Extremists on the Right'
The White House is pushing back against undercover videos that show Planned Parenthood executives and physicians discussing the price of body parts from aborted fetuses.
White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest said Thursday the videos are "fraudulent" and there's not a lot of evidence that Planned Parenthood has acted unethically.
"There is ample reason to think that this is merely the tried and true tactic that we’ve seen from extremists on the right to edit this video and selectively release this edited version of the video that grossly distorts the position of the person that’s actually speaking," Earnest said.
He stopped short of saying President Obama would veto a measure to strip Planned Parenthood of federal funding, but stated that Obama will oppose that effort.
