Missouri Senate Moves Forward with Contempt Proceedings Against Planned Parenthood

Missouri Senator Kurt Schaefer (R-Columbia), Chairman of the Senate Interim Committee on the Sanctity of Life, is moving forward with legal proceedings to hold Planned Parenthood and Pathology Services, Inc. in contempt for failure to produce documents pursuant to a subpoena issued by the Missouri Senate.

The subpoena seeks six years worth of documents revealing how Planned Parenthood has handled fetal tissue from abortions.  The subpoenas were issued to Mary Kogut, President of Planned Parenthood for the St. Louis region, and to James Miller, President of Pathology Services, Inc., the lab that analyzes fetal tissue submitted by Planned Parenthood as required by Missouri law.

The contempt proceedings are just beginning and could result in fines and even jail time for Kogut and Miller.  Read more here, and stay tuned for more on this developing story.
