House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, stated in a press briefing that he'd "vomit trying to talk about" the gruesome video that reveals Planned Parenthood engaging in the ghoulish practice of selling organs and body parts from aborted fetuses.

"If you've seen this video, I don't have to tell you how sickening it is," Boehner said at his weekly press briefing Thursday. "So rest assured that we're going to get to the bottom of this, [and] protect the values that we hold dear."

Story continues below video.

 


After the undercover video, produced by the anti-abortion group Center for Medical Progress, was released, Boehner demanded a congressional investigation as well as called on the Obama administration and Human Services Secretary Sylvia Burwell to denounce "these gruesome practices."

"I want the committees to do their investigation. I want them to do their hearings. And, once they have, then we'll decide what's the proper course of action," Boehner said.

Planned Parenthood has said the video was heavily edited and mischaracterizes the practices by the organization.

Following the release of the video, Planned Parenthood has said the organization legally helps women who want to donate their fetus' organs for scientific research, and says it does not profit by donating the organs to science.
