Planned Parenthood Does Damage Control as GOP Demands Answers

POLITICO’s Anna Palmer and John Bresnahan report that, while House Republicans attempt to secure an interview with Dr. Deborah Nucatola about allegedly selling fetal tissue from abortions, Planned Parenthood is working to protect abortion rights. “The organization is reaching out to numerous lawmakers in the House and Senate, aggressively working its grassroots network and trying to rally political support,” Palmer and Bresnahan write. “The group has been assisted by a range of progressive organizations that see the scandal as a proxy fight over abortion.”
