Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid defended Planned Parenthood following the release of videos that have raised questions among Republican lawmakers about its abortion practices, calling the videos “politically motivated” while also emphasizing the organization should follow the law. “Human fetal tissue research has been critically important for biomedical research for a long, long time,” Reid said. “… These politically-motivated videos raise some questions, but nothing I’ve seen indicates Planned Parenthood violated federal laws.”
