CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) - Nevada Attorney General Adam Laxalt said he’s closed an inquiry into Planned Parenthood and is satisfied that the Nevada offices aren’t donating tissue from aborted fetuses.

Laxalt’s office said Wednesday that lawyers for Planned Parenthood clinics in Las Vegas wrote to him and confirmed the facilities don’t perform surgical abortions or participate in fetal tissue donation programs.

Laxalt wrote a letter to the organization in September, after a series of online videos suggested that some Planned Parenthood clinics illegally sell tissue from aborted fetuses.

He asked Nevada Planned Parenthood officials to verify information on their websites that says their only abortion procedures involve administering a pill that would terminate a pregnancy that’s nine or 10 weeks along.

Planned Parenthood lawyers’ brief response says they’re in full compliance with the law.
