President Obama likely hasn't seen and has no plans to view four videos made by an anti-abortion group purporting to prove that Planned Parenthood profits from selling aborted fetal tissue, a White House spokesman said Friday.

"I haven't asked him that question point blank, but I do know that he is aware of the news that those videos have generated," White House spokesman Josh Earnest said.

Asked if Obama plans to watch the videos amid the growing controversy and calls to strip the organization of federal funding, Earnest said it most likely is not on his schedule.

"I don't believe that he has that planned for his weekend," Earnest said.

Earnest, who also admitted to not watching the videos, said the Justice Department alone would decide on whether to open an investigation into possible illegal activity by Planned Parenthood.

"Our position on this is ... if a Department of Justice inquiry is required, that is a decision they will make," Earnest said.

He also repeated that the clinics provide healthcare to millions of Americans and that Obama would veto any legislation to defund the organization.

"[W]e have routinely opposed the inclusion of ideologically driven riders in the budget process, and certainly a rider that would, on a wholesale basis, defund Planned Parenthood, which is the proposal of some Republicans in the House, is certainly something that would draw a presidential veto," Earnest reiterated.

Earnest also said he is not sure the videos prove what the makers claim they do.

"So the other thing that I alluded to yesterday is, we have seen this kind of tactic be attempted by other extremist organizations that have an ideological agenda, and they marshaled what purported to be convincing and damning evidence that didn't — that later did not prove to hold up to much scrutiny," Earnest said.

But Earnest admitted that he's basing his skepticism on others' criticism of the videos' authenticity, as he has not watched them.

"Well, I think it's possible that people here have seen the video, which is based on the fact that it's gotten a lot of news attention, but I haven't," Earnest said. "I don't know if the president has, and I certainly know there are a handful of people who I think can — would — would generally be described as impartial observers, who have raised some significant concerns about the content of those videos."
