(Worthy News) - Don't expect many public hearings from a new House committee created to investigate fetal tissue procurement from Planned Parenthood and other abortion providers.
The Republican woman leading the committee, Rep. Marsha Blackburn of Tennessee, says the bulk of the panel's work will take place behind closed doors instead of in highly charged congressional hearings that lawmakers typically use to levy political attacks at each other.
"Our task is not to get attention, our task is to get answers, and that will clearly be our focus," Blackburn told the Washington Examinerin an interview laying out the committee's goals and timeline. [ Source ]
