Panel on body parts urged to dig deeper

On Wednesday the U.S. House Select Panel on Infant Lives held its second committee hearing with testimony about revelations from undercover videos by The Center for Medical Progress. The videos show Planned Parenthood and other abortion officials discussing the sale of the body parts.

Attorney Catherine Glenn Foster of the Charlotte Lozier Institute explained to the panel that federal law bars profiting from the harvesting and selling of the body parts and tissue.

"As demonstrated by the evidence presented by this panel, clinics and procurement companies have been getting away with charging far more than the allowed costs for harvesting, transporting, and warehousing body parts as they wait for customers."
