These videos promoted the start of the investigation and led to Planned Parenthood turning over thousands of documents.

The FBI has reportedly asked the Senate for unredacted documents obtained from abortion providers, which may signal an investigation into Planned Parenthood and other parties involved in the market for fetal tissue from abortions. The investigation came after the Center for Medical Progress published a series of explosive videos in 2015 revealing the abortion giant was harvesting and distributing aborted baby parts for researchers. However, there wasn't anything conclusive to indict Planned Parenthood, as state investigators did not find concrete proof, according to NPR.

"We welcome the Justice Department's investigation of Planned Parenthood", said Susan B. Anthony List President Marjorie Dannenfelser.

"Not content with their status as the nation's largest abortion business, evidence shows Planned Parenthood sought to squeeze every last opportunity for cash from the sale of hearts, brains, lungs, and livers of the unborn children whose lives they end", she said.

Planned Parenthood has reacted by saying it "strongly disagrees with the recommendations of the Senate Republican staff to refer this matter to the Justice Department".

Dana Singiser, vice president of government affairs for Planned Parenthood Federation of America, called accusations of wrongdoing "baseless".

The Center for Medical Progress alleges Planned Parenthood was illegally profiting from the exchange of limbs and organs, and the House and Senate launched investigations into the nonprofit's practice. Grassley contends the providers violated a 1993 law that bars selling fetal tissue at a profit. Chuck Grassley (R-IA), stated the FBI should conduct an investigation. "Only a thorough investigation by the Justice Department will ensure that women and their unborn children are protected from the risky motivations behind this criminal conduct", she said.
