Liberal Democratic Mayor Bill de Blasio is reportedly being recruited by Planned Parenthood of New York to be in a video supporting the organization whose officials have come under fire for discussing the sale of fetal tissue.

Capital New York reports the effort comes as de Blasio declared his intention to block GOP efforts to defund Planned Parenthood.

"Today, U.S. Senator Rand Paul wants to close the doors of the most trusted women’s health care provider in the country," de Blasio said in a statement Tuesday, the New York Observer reports.

"His reason has everything to do with politics and nothing to do with health care. Planned Parenthood serves 76,000 New Yorkers a year with sexual and reproductive health services. If New Yorkers have anything to do with it – and they do – Planned Parenthood will continue to connect New Yorkers to care for another 100 years, turning no one away."

The Observer notes the mayor has been critical of GOP presidential candidates, but a statement from his office aimed at one individual hopeful is unusual.

Paul's lead in the charge to investigate and strip government funding from Planned Parenthood was sparked by undercover videos showing organization officials talking about fetal tissue donations. Planned Parenthood has denied any wrongdoing.
