Planned Parenthood hearing gets heated in Jefferson City

ABC 17 News has reporters at a Planned Parenthood hearing at the state capitol in Jefferson City. The Senate’s interim committee on the sanctity of life started meeting Tuesday morning. They already talked about the recent allegations involving the national agency and the sale of body parts from abortions.

Sen. Kurt Schaefer, along with the rest of the committee, wanted to give the public an opportunity to weigh-in on the discussion.

Mike Hoey with the Missouri Catholic Conference addressed the licensing at the Columbia Planned Parenthood clinic. He said letting the facility operate was the same as the University of Missouri “aiding and abetting the abortion industry.”

The committee also heard testimony from Sue Gibson from the National Organization for Women. She criticized the committee’s efforts, calling them politically-motivated witch hunts.
