WASHINGTON – Alliance Defending Freedom Senior Counsel Casey Mattox will be available for media interviews Wednesday following the House Select Investigative Panel on Infant Lives’ first hearing on the Planned Parenthood baby parts scandal.
“Every innocent life deserves to be protected,” said Mattox. “Scandal-ridden organizations like Planned Parenthood have demonstrated utter disregard for human dignity, as the authenticated undercover videos at various Planned Parenthood facilities clearly show. Planned Parenthood’s multiple scandals also clearly demonstrate why Congress is right to investigate and why America’s number one abortion seller does not deserve our taxpayer dollars, especially when much better and more comprehensive health alternatives for women and families outnumber Planned Parenthood facilities 20 to 1 throughout the country.” (#DefundPP)
The panel is a subcommittee of the Energy and Commerce Committee. Rep. Marsha Blackburn chairs the panel.
