OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) _ Recently released videos that show a Planned Parenthood official discussing the distribution of fetal body parts are being used by anti-abortion advocates in Oklahoma to seek political contributions and bolster support for legislation to further restrict abortion.
Oklahoma Republican Party Chairman Randy Brogdon sent an email on Thursday soliciting donations to ``help us end abortion in Oklahoma.'' He also urged the governor to call a special session to outlaw abortion altogether and shut down Planned Parenthood, which operates four health clinics in the state.
Governor Mary Fallin didn't indicate any plans to call a special session, but referred to the videos as ``sickening.''
Meanwhile, U.S. Senator James Lankford introduced a bill in the U.S. Senate to end all federal funding for Planned Parenthood unless the organization stops performing abortions.
