(CNSNews.com) - White House Spokesperson Josh Earnest says he suspects somebody in the Obama Administration has seen a series of videos on Planned Parenthood’s role in harvesting the organs of babies, but the administration is basing its position that the videos are edited unfairly on the comments of Planned Parenthood and “the high ethical standard they live up to.”

During a White House press briefing Thursday Earnest was asked if anyone at the White House has watched the series of videos about Planned Parenthood.

“I suspect somebody has,” Earnest replied.

“Where are you getting your information that the fact that it’s fraudulent, or the fact that they're distorted and edited unfairly?” a reporter asked.

 “Based on the public comments of Planned Parenthood who has indicated that the views that are represented in the video are entirely inconsistent with that organizations policies and with the high ethical standard they live up to.”

The Center for Medical Progress has released a series of videos showing Planned Parenthood representatives discussing prices for body parts from aborted babies.

The White House said on Thursday that President Barack Obama would oppose any efforts by Congress to defund Planned Parenthood.
