Planned Parenthood Federation of America announced a change in their fetal tissue donation policy, in a move that one pro-life critic calls "an admission of guilt."
America's largest abortion provider released a statement Tuesday noting that their clinics will no longer accept reimbursements for fetal tissue donations.
"Reimbursement for reasonable expenses related to tissue donation is fully legal, appropriate, and common among health care providers," read the statement in part.
"Planned Parenthood affiliates in two states help their patients who wish to participate in fetal tissue research."
Cecile Richards, president of Planned Parenthood, stated that the decision came in response to the widely disseminated allegations leveled by the pro-life group Center for Medical Progress that the women's health organization was illegally profiting from human tissue sales.
