BREAKING: Boehner appoints members to Planned Parenthood investigative panel

Boehner appoints members to Planned Parenthood investigative panel

Speaker of the House John Boehner has selected the GOP members for a House committee created to investigate the grisly practices of big abortion providers – predominantly Planned Parenthood.

Rep. Marsha Blackburn (R-Tenn.) will chair the new committee. As chairwoman of the committee, Blackburn will be given the power of subpoena. The other members of the committee appointed thus far are:

  • Rep. Joe Pitts (R-PA)
  • Rep. Diane Black (R-TN)
  • Rep. Larry Bucshon (R-IN)
  • Rep. Sean Duffy (R-WI)
  • Rep.  Andy Harris (R-MD)
  • Rep. Vicky Hartzler (R-MO)
  • Rep. Mia Love (R-UT)

In a statement released Friday, Boehner said:

Recent videos exposing the abortion-for-baby parts business have shocked the nation, and demanded action.  At my request, three House committees have been investigating the abortion business, but we still don’t have the full truth. Chairman Blackburn and our members will have the resources and the subpoena power to get to the bottom of these horrific practices, and build on our work to protect the sanctity of all human life.

The Democratic party will hold five seats on the committee. As of Friday morning, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) has yet to announce who will be appointed to fill these seats.

Three other House committees have already begun conducting investigations into Planned Parenthood, following the release of undercover videos showing Planned Parenthood officials discussing the sale of fetal body parts.
