Republican presidential candidates blasted Planned Parenthood on Wednesday after an undercover video was released showing an official discussing the shipment of fetus body parts.
Here's what they say:

"The video showing a Planned Parenthood employee selling the body parts of aborted children is a disturbing reminder of the organization's penchant for profiting off the tragedy of a destroyed human life. It is because of stories like this that I signed legislation defunding Planned Parenthood in the state of Texas - to protect human life and the health and safety of Texans."
This is a shocking and horrific reminder that we must do so much more to foster a culture of life in America: http://t.co/2BeGBHlYfs

"I am proudly pro-life. I believe that every human life has potential and that every human life is precious. This latest news is tragic and outrageous. This isn't about "choice." It's about profiting on the death of the unborn while telling women it's about empowerment."
Planned Parenthood must be defunded after the horror revealed today. Add your name if you agree: https://t.co/HvfFp7QK1R

The latest Planned Parenthood video is disgusting. I'll fight to defend the unborn. Support life, sign the petition: http://t.co/GRAiE35Tv8

In a statement to Buzzfeed News: "This is absolutely horrifying and disgusting. Planned Parenthood and the Democrats who vote to fund this organization owe the American people an explanation for these heinous, and possibly illegal, actions."
Congress should investigate and defund Planned Parenthood: https://t.co/VTwyWyqUOv
