The Daily Dot reported Monday morning that late Sunday a group of hackers had launched a successful breach of the organizations' website databases and employee records. One of the hackers believed to be involved suggested the cyber attack was politically motivated, however, a Motherboard report cast doubt on that claim.

Planned Parenthood is already under fire for a series of heavily-edited videos that anti-abortion activists say show that affiliates are profiting from providing tissues from aborted fetuses to researchers.
