An anti-abortion activist indicted in Texas over covertly recorded video from inside a Planned Parenthood clinic says his group uses the same undercover techniques as journalists and follows the law.

Center for Medical Progress founder David Daleiden said Monday that his nonprofit respects the court system in Houston. That's where a grand jury indicted him and another anti-abortion activist for video secretly filmed last year that targeted the handling of fetal tissue in Planned Parenthood clinics.

The grand jury that indicted Daleiden cleared Parent Parenthood of any wrongdoing.

Daleiden faces a felony charge of tampering with a governmental record and a misdemeanor count related to purchasing human organs. Prosecutors didn't provide any further details. Responding to the charges, Daleiden says that "buying fetal tissue requires a seller as well."
