AG Koster finds no evidence of Planned Parenthood selling fetal tissue in St. Louis

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) – Missouri’s Democratic attorney general says an investigation by his office found no evidence that Planned Parenthood in St. Louis is selling fetal tissue from abortions.

Chris Koster’s report released Monday said a review of more than 300 abortions performed in June found that all tissue had been properly incinerated.’

Koster launched an investigation following state and national outrage, primarily by Republicans, about undercover videos released by anti-abortion activists. The videos show Planned Parenthood officials discussing the transfer of fetal tissue to researchers.

Republicans in the Missouri House and Senate also are leading reviews of abortion practices in the state in response to the videos.

Koster is expected to run for Missouri governor in 2016, when Democratic Gov. Jay Nixon will be barred from seeking re-election because of term limits.
