House Judiciary Committee Continues Hearings Investigating Planned Parenthood’s Abortion Business

The U.S. House Committee on the Judiciary today held a second hearing examining Planned Parenthood’s abortion business. The hearing, titled “”Planned Parenthood Exposed: Examining Abortion Procedures and Medical Ethics at the Nation’s Largest Abortion Provider,” comes on the heels of a series of videos by The Center for Medical Progress (CMP) exposing the gruesome business of baby-body-part harvesting and trafficking, often involving affiliates of the Planned Parenthood Federation of America (PPFA), the nation’s largest abortion provider

“Planned Parenthood now commands about one-third of the total abortion ‘market’,” said Carol Tobias, National Right to Life president. “We fully support investigations into many aspects of this grisly business. Planned Parenthood equals abortion.”

Among today’s witnesses testifying before the Committee on the Judiciary were former abortionist Anthony Levatino, M.D., J.D. and Susan Thayer, former center manager of Planned Parenthood of the Heartland’s Storm Lake, Iowa clinic.
