HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) - Attorney General Kathleen Kane’s office has received a letter from Pennsylvania’s top Republican lawmakers seeking an investigation of Planned Parenthood after the release of an undercover video showing its national medical director discussing providing fetal body parts to researchers.

Kane’s office said Tuesday it’s reviewing the letter.

In it, Senate President Pro Tempore Joe Scarnati and House Speaker Mike Turzai cite investigations begun in other states and request that Kane coordinate with the Wolf administration to do the same in Pennsylvania.

The group that made the video says it proves Planned Parenthood is breaking federal law against selling human fetal tissue. Planned Parenthood says it legally helps women who want to donate fetal tissue for scientific research, not sell it commercially.

Planned Parenthood says its Pennsylvania health centers don’t participate in fetal tissue donation.
