Activists say it is a response to secretly-taped videos that show Planned Parenthood officials discussing the collection of fetal organs for research.

They say the videos show that Planned Parenthood illegally sells fetal tissue for profit.

Planned Parenthood says the videos have been edited to bolster false claims.
