Planned Parenthood urges public to watch debate
Planned Parenthood reacts to claims it misused video, urges public to watch debate
MADISON, Wis. — Planned Parenthood of Wisconsin is not directly addressing claims made by a nonprofit cable network that the group misused footage of Republican Senate President Mike Ellis taken from debate over an abortion bill.
WisconsinEye Public Affairs Network on Tuesday accused Planned Parenthood of violating its user agreement by using the footage of Ellis in a political ad. The footage used showed Ellis, of Neenah, banging his gavel and shouting at lawmakers during debate of a bill requiring doctors who perform abortions to have hospital admitting privileges. The ad has been airing on television stations in Green Bay.
Planned Parenthood attorney Nicole Safar responded Wednesday, urging the public to watch the entire debate to “make their own decision about Sen. Mike Ellis.”
Safar does not address WisconsinEye’s accusations.
