The Ohio Republican said the House will investigate videos that purport to show Planned Parenthood trafficking in fetal body parts.
“We’ll also take up a select committee to investigate these horrific videos that we’ve seen from abortion clinics in several states that really raise questions about the use of federal funds and raise questions about aborted fetuses that are born alive,” Boehner said.
