JEFFERSON CITY, Mo- A Planned Parenthood doctor is keeping quite about what happens to fetal remains after an abortion.
A state legislative hearing was scheduled today to question Dr. James Miller, a pathologist that worked with Planned Parenthood. However, it was cancelled after the attorney for Miller said he was going to use his fifth amendment rights to not testify.
Senator Kurt Schaefer said that since the doctor did not make an appearance, Planned Parenthood agreed to release documents stating what they do with the remains.
This all stems from senators investigating Missouri Planned Parenthood’s after the controversial undercover video accused the organization of illegally selling fetal tissue for profit.
Schaefer says the organization could have cleared up the issue much sooner and questions why it took so long for them to hand over the documents.
Schaefer also announced a new funding plan that would affect Planned Parenthood, “We actually passed a budget that does not fund Planned Parenthood for the first time in Missouri’s history, so we’ve made great strides in protecting life in the Missouri General Assembly.”
Schaefer also says that both sides of the Senate will be reviewing the documents for the next few weeks and that they have not been made public yet.
The Planned Parenthood in St. Louis is the only abortion provider.
