Washington, DC – The Health Subcommittee of the House Energy and Commerce Committee has scheduled a hearing on Planned Parenthood’s alleged illegal conduct on Thursday, September 17 at 3:00 pm (EDT).
In a press release issued today, the Subcommittee on Health noted the following:
In the course of this investigation, the committee has sent five letters since the release of the first video and conducted six interviews to date. The committee has interviewed Dr. Reagan McDonald Mosley, the Chief Medical Officer of PPFA, Dr. Deborah Nucatola, Senior Director of Medical Services at PPFA, representatives from StemExpress, Novogenix, and Advanced Biosciences Resources, Inc. The committee has also interviewed the Associate Director for Science Policy at the National Institutes of Health.
The hearing, called “Protecting Infants: Ending Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Providers Who Violate the Law” will focus on denying Medicaid payments to abortion businesses that are breaking the law.
The allegations of illegal trafficking in human aborted baby remains surfaced in July when the Center for Medical Progress began releasing a series of undercover videos that showed Planned Parenthood executives negotiating for the best price for each fetal “specimen.” The videos also show evidence that Planned Parenthood illegally alters abortion procedures in order to ensure organs are intact and suitable for sale, and that the banned Partial Birth Abortion method is employed to ensure that the aborted baby remains are as intact as possible.
David Daleiden, Executive Director of the Center for Medical Progress and Project Lead for the undercover investigation has previously stated that the biologics company StemExpress “sometimes get fully intact fetuses shipped to their laboratory from the abortion clinics that they work with, and that could be prima facie evidence of born alive infants.”
“The committee will use every investigative tool available to get to the facts,” the Subcommitte press release stated.
The witness list and other documents will be posted here as they become available.
This hearing follows on the heels of a House Judiciary Committee Hearing on Wednesday that heard testimony from two abortion survivors, Gianna Jessen and Melissa Ohden.
“One of our goals had been to see Planned Parenthood not only defunded, but brought to justice,” said Troy Newman, President of Operation Rescue and board member for the Center for Medical Progress. “We hope and pray that these Congressional investigations will bring to light irrefutable evidence that Planned Parenthood has not only broken fetal tissue laws, but has committed murder of infants born alive during abortions. Meanwhile, we continue to work to see Planned Parenthood held accountable in a court of law.”
