New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, a Republican presidential candidate, is also a former U.S. attorney, and he says he sees adequate evidence in the recently released Planned Parenthood videos to warrant an investigation.

"Given what we have seen on these videos and the history, there absolutely should be. There's enough to investigate," Christie said Thursday on Fox News Channel's "The O'Reilly Factor." "Let's get the facts."

A fourth undercover video was released earlier Thursday showing Planned Parenthood officials discussing the sale of fetal tissue. The group says the videos, shot by the pro-life group Center for Medical Progress, are deceptive, but CMP also has posted the entire unedited videos online.

Christie said that if what appears to be said in the videos is true, what is being described is "against the law."

Attorney General Loretta Lynch should look into the allegations, Christie said, even though her boss, President Barack Obama, has stood in firm support of Planned Parenthood even after the videos have come to light.

Christie said he was pro-choice until 20 years ago when he heard the heartbeat of his daughter, who was at 13 weeks gestation at the time.

"It turned it for me," Christie told host Bill O'Reilly. "On that ride home, I said my position is not justifiable. That's a life. And I cannot countenance the taking of that life."

As governor, Christie has vetoed state support of Planned Parenthood for the past six years, he said.
