Attorney General Mike DeWine says his office will seek an injunction against three Ohio Planned Parenthood facilities.

DeWine says an investigation conducted by his office determined that aborted fetal remains from facilities in Columbus, Cincinnati and Bedford Heights were found in landfills. DeWine says that is inhuman and a violation of state code.

De Wine says an injunction would be sought by his office to change the way the Planned Parenthood facilities dispose of aborted fetuses.

Planned Parenthood has denied the charge.

Planned Parenthood of Ohio President Stephanie Kight, called the allegation "flat-out false." She said Planned Parenthood handles medical tissue "like any other quality health care provider."

In the meantime, the Attorney General's office found no evidence that Planned Parenthood profited from the sale of aborted fetuses.
