The Faith & Freedom Coalition of Colorado, a pro-life group, has filed a lawsuit yesterday against Colorado State University and Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountains for “enter[ing] into a contract with defendant Rocky Mountain Planned Parenthood whereby CSU was to purchase parts of human fetuses aborted by defendant Rocky Mountain Planned Parenthood,” reports The Denver Post.
The suit makes reference to the Center for Medical Progress’s undercover videos filmed at various Planned Parenthood facilities, including PPRM, located in Denver, Colorado, and operated by Dr. Savita Ginde. The plaintiffs claim that “Colorado State University and Rocky Mountain Planned Parenthood violated the state constitution by purchasing tissue of aborted fetuses and indirectly used tax dollars to subsidize abortions.”
Colorado State University denies any wrongdoing. Twitchy reported today:
CSU responded to the allegations, stating that “in accordance with state and federal law, CSU obtained placental tissue from Rocky Mountain Planned Parenthood for research into healthy pregnancies and also properly obtained fetal tissue from other providers for important research into curing disease. CSU denies any wrongdoing and otherwise declines to comment on pending litigation.”
Twitchy also shared this radio interview with the Faith & Freedom Coalition’s executive director, Nicholas McIntyre, from AM 560:
Planned Parenthood, at this time, has made no comment on the lawsuit.
