Planned Parenthood Federation of America CEO Cecile Richards announced today that Planned Parenthood no longer plans to sell organs harvested from aborted fetal remains to scientists–although it still plans to give the organs to researchers.

The move comes in the wake of a series of undercover videos exposing Planned Parenthood officials allegedly negotiating the sale of aborted fetal remains in violation of federal law.

Richards recently testified before members of Congress about the organization’s practices. Her letter to the National Institute of Health acknowledges that Planned Parenthood will continue to give organs harvested from aborted babies to researchers; Planned Parenthood affiliates simply will receive no compensation for the organs.

Of course, there are still serious ethical questions about medical research conducted on organs harvest from aborted babies, as we have written before, so this is by no means a solution to the situation. However, this is a step in the right direction.
