Center For Medical Progress' Deceptively-Edited Videos Are Repurposed By House Oversight Committee

Blog ››› ››› JULIE ALDERMAN

The Center for Medical Progress' deceptively-edited videos have been repurposed by the House Oversight Committee to promote its investigation into Planned Parenthood.

The Center for Medical Progress launched a smear campaign against Planned Parenthood by producing a series of secretly-filmed, deceptively-edited videos that falsely claim to show the women's healthcare provider breaking the law by selling fetal tissue to medical research firms. These claims have been been debunked several times by experts and independent analysts. Multiple investigations by states and at least one federal agency have also cleared Planned Parenthood of any wrongdoing.

Portions of the videos published by the Center for Medical Progress,which has a history of extreme views, appear in a video published by the House Oversight Committee to promote their September 29 hearing on taxpayer funding for Planned Parenthood:
