Already reeling from last year's undercover videos, Planned Parenthood is facing a loss of funding in Wisconsin and now has more to worry about.

The videos from The Center for Medical Progress allege the abortion giant is profiting from the body parts and organs of aborted fetuses that are shipped to companies buying them for medical research.

As that story unfolded last year, the University of Wisconsin-Madison denied any role in the controversial arrangement.

To learn the truth, Alliance Defending Freedom filed a public records request.

According to the ADF, public documents revealed that the university did indeed use aborted babies – their brains and hearts – for medical research, and those organs came from Planned Parenthood.

The timing couldn't have been worse for Planned Parenthood, and better for pro-life activists, since Wisconsin legislators were debating a bill that would ban the practice in the state, says ADF attorney Matt Bowman.

ADF further describes the claims, and the lies it says were uncovered, in a story here.

In the state of North Dakota, meanwhile, pro-lifers there are reacting to a U.S. Supreme Court decision that struck down the state's "heartbeat bill."

The bill would have banned abortions after six weeks.

Brock Schmeling says the court failed to recognize an unborn child is a human being, since a heartbeat can be detected at six weeks.

"At the end of life, if someone has a heart, we recognize that they are alive," says the pro-lifer. "And the same principle should extend at the beginning of life."

Tom Freier, who heads North Dakota Family Alliance, says the pro-life work will continue despite the legal setback. He credits legislators for passing good legislation but they are being stopped by "unelected justices." 

North Dakota currently has a state law banning abortion after 20 weeks.
