ST. LOUIS (KPLR) – Demonstrators took to the street Tuesday outside Planned Parenthood on Forest Park Avenue in the Central West End. They want to de-fund the nation’s largest abortion provider after some employees were caught on camera discussing payment for fetal tissue and harvesting specific organs during abortions.

Both are illegal, but donating tissue for research is allowed.

New graphic caught on camera video released today, described the harvesting and sale of aborted fetal body parts. Planned Parenthood says the discussions caught on camera were about legal reimbursements for the costs of procuring the tissue.
