Student club advocates for Planned Parenthood amid controversy

By Jenna Mortenson, Staff Writer October 18, 2015
Debate over Planned Parenthood was renewed in recent months with the release of videos that allegedly showed leaders of the organization negotiating the sale of aborted fetal tissue. Supporters of Planned Parenthood argued that the videos were fraudulent and manipulated, while others called for the government to defund Planned Parenthood over the reports. Junior Christina Tudor, president of IC Planned Parenthood Generation Action, said this is not the first time a group has released videos intended to cause controversy about the organization, and IC Generation Action works to raise awareness around the issue.
Planned Parenthood became the center of a polarized debate after the release of controversial investigative videos. Several Ithaca College students have become engaged in the discussion.
