Missouri legislative panel wants contempt hearings against Planned Parenthood

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) – A Republican-led Missouri legislative panel says the Senate should launch contempt proceedings against a St. Louis-region Planned Parenthood.

The report from the Senate Interim Committee on the Sanctity of Life comes after the Planned Parenthood of the St. Louis Region and Southwest Missouri refused to comply with a subpoena.

The committee was formed after anti-abortion activists released videos they said showed Planned Parenthood personnel negotiating the sale of fetal organs.

Some committee members wanted records of incidents that required an ambulance and written protocols for performing abortions.

The St. Louis Planned Parenthood is the only clinic in the state that provides abortions.

The two Democratic senators on the panel didn’t sign the report. Creve Coeur Democrat Sen. Jill Schupp says it was politically motivated.
