The videos were accurate. Planned Parenthood deserves to be defunded. The money should go to organizations that provide legitimate health care.

I disagree. All the investigations of PP have found no evidence that they "sold baby parts". I was a volunteer there one summer and I know they do good work, most of which has nothing to do with abortion.
