A second undercover video appears to show a Planned Parenthood official discussing reimbursement fees associated with fetal tissue procurement and donation, prompting Texas Gov. Greg Abbott to call for an expanded investigation into the organization.

The latest hidden-camera video from the anti-abortion group The Center for Medical Progress shows a woman identified as Dr. Mary Gatter, Planned Parenthood Federation of America’s Medical Directors’ Council president, meeting with investigators posing as representatives of a tissue procurement company.

Abbott said the new video “is more than just callous and morally bereft, it may be criminal.”

“The video appears to directly contradict Planned Parenthood’s statement last week that they do not earn a profit for selling body parts. Today’s new grotesque revelations necessitate that Texas expand its investigation into this abhorrent practice,” said Abbott, a Republican.
