.- Following the release of an undercover video showing staffers at a Wisconsin Planned Parenthood clinic giving false information to a woman they believed was seeking an abortion, a state senator has called for an investigation into the organization. An undercover video made by Live Action Films shows staffers at a Planned Parenthood abortion clinic near Appleton, Wisconsin giving conflicting and unscientific information about human development.

One staffer claimed that an unborn baby has only “heart tones,” not a heartbeat, until “about seventeen or eighteen weeks” into gestation.

The fetal heartbeat actually begins at around three weeks into pregnancy.

The video also shows the abortionist saying the unborn child is “not a baby at this stage” and telling the young woman that having an abortion is “much safer” than having a baby.

Republican Wisconsin State Senator Glenn Grothman has called for an investigation, saying legislators should make sure Planned Parenthood does not “mislead” young girls in the future.

He called for the medical board to begin an investigation into whether the abortionist should continue to have a medical license.

Wisconsin law requires women seeking abortions to receive medically accurate information, a press release from Live Action says.

Teri Huyck, President and CEO of Planned Parenthood of Wisconsin, issued a statement on Friday saying that the doctor provided “honest, medically accurate information.” She described the videos as “edited.”

Live Action has sent the full unedited footage to Wisconsin Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen and Outagamie County District Attorney Carrie Schneider for review.

Lila Rose, the president of Live Action, charged that Planned Parenthood “poses” as a mainstream health provider but hides the facts of fetal development “so they can sell more abortions to more women.”

“An abortion is not a mere surgery. Instead, abortion determines whether a woman's unborn son or daughter will live or die,” she added.

“Planned Parenthood's pattern of medical malpractice and refusal to accept correction from scientific authorities further separates them from the rest of the medical community, who base their treatment on sound scientific guidance, not deceiving patients."
