Washington, D.C—House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.) released the following statement in response to Planned Parenthood’s intention to end its acceptance of reimbursements for fetal tissue donations:

“While Planned Parenthood has stated its intention to end its practice of accepting reimbursements for fetal tissue donation, it has not stated its commitment to end its horrific practice of harvesting fetal tissue. This announcement by Planned Parenthood does not change the focus of the House Judiciary Committee’s investigation into Planned Parenthood’s practice of procuring fetal tissue as it relates to the Partial-Birth Abortion Ban Actand the Born-Alive Infants Protection Act. Furthermore, Planned Parenthood’s recent announcement certainly does not excuse the horrific practices brought to light in the videos released by the Center for Medical Progress.”
