Hillary Clinton gave her first criticism of Planned Parenthood since videos surfaced of group officials discussing fetal organ harvesting.
In an interview Tuesday with the New Hampshire Union Leader, Clinton called the videos "disturbing" and said Planned Parenthood still has questions to address.
“I have seen the pictures from them and obviously find them disturbing,” the Democratic presidential candidate said. “Planned Parenthood is answering questions and will continue to answer questions.”
Her comments come after the Center for Medical Progress released several undercover videos. Those videos showed Planned Parenthood representatives discussing fetal tissue extraction and compensation. Clinton and other Democrats had largely avoided commenting on the issue.
While selling such fetal issue is illegal, Planned Parenthood maintains it only donates the tissue, legally.
Republican White House candidates, and lawmakers, have since called for de-funding Planned Parenthood -- Republicans are considering a bill in the Senate to do so.
Clinton, however, added in her interview that she still supports the organization.
“I think there are two points to make,” she told the paper. “One, Planned Parenthood for more than a century has done a lot of really good work for women: cancer screenings, family planning, all kinds of health services. And this raises not questions about Planned Parenthood so much as it raises questions about the whole process, that is, not just involving Planned Parenthood, but many institutions in our country.”
She told the paper that funding for the organization is at no more risk than it has been.
