Missouri Senate staffer to look into Planned Parenthood records

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) – A Missouri Senate staffer is set to review Planned Parenthood’s internal records, including procedures for fetal tissue disposal.

Republican attorney Todd Scott says he plans to examine the documents Thursday at the office of Planned Parenthood’s attorney. He checked the documents earlier this month to verify they were all present.

Planned Parenthood came under scrutiny last year after activists released undercover videos alleging the nation’s largest abortion provider illegally profited from fetal tissue sales. Missouri’s attorney general cleared Planned Parenthood of wrongdoing, and the organization pointed to that exoneration when lawmakers subpoenaed documents for their own investigation.

Planned Parenthood agreed to share the documents after senators threatened to hold its regional CEO in contempt, which could have carried jail time.

The Senate has until mid-June to review the files.
