Texas Sen. Ted Cruz released a video on his YouTube channel on Wednesday in which he calls for the federal government to stop funding Planned Parenthood.

The organization has been under fire since two undercover videos were released of Planned Parenthood officials, who also are abortion doctors, talking about being paid for fetal tissue to be used for research.

Planned Parenthood has accused The Center for Medical Progress, which recorded the videos, of selective editing. It also noted that while it is illegal to profit off the sale of fetal tissue, clinics can be reimbursed for their cost.

The second video appears to show the Planned Parenthood official negotiating the price, and both videos show the doctors saying they adjust their techniques to keep from damaging the most sought-after tissues.

Most of the footage from Cruz's video is of his appearance over the weekend at the Family Leadership Summit in Ames, Iowa.

Story continues below video.


"Let me say the video that surfaced in the last week was gruesome and disgusting," Cruz said of the first video, which had already been released at the time of his Iowa appearance.

"The U.S. Department of Justice, if it were not simply a partisan arm of the DNC, should open an investigation and prosecute Planned Parenthood," Cruz says. "And we should we cut off every penny of taxpayer funds."

Cruz also plans to released the video to supporters, The Daily Caller reported.
