Planned Parenthood came under intense fire in 2015 after a video surfaced of the organization's employees discussing acquiring tissue and organs from aborted fetuses. A congressional committee was created to investigate the non-profit organization Planned Parenthood. This development became the rallying cry of pro-life conservative groups who urged federal funding of Planned Parenthood should be discontinued. Republican officials and presidential candidates released statements denouncing the organization and preaching about respecting the sanctity of life.
Because of the scandal surrounding Planned Parenthood, several companies like The American Cancer Society, Morgan Stanley and ExxonMobil released statements distancing themselves from the non-profit organization.
