Today, the Democratic Members of the Select Investigative Panel, which has been investigating abortion providers for the last 15 months, issued a 112-page report affirming that their investigation has found no evidence of wrongdoing by abortion providers, researchers, or companies involved in fetal tissue donation and research.
“It’s no surprise that just like 17 other federal and state investigations, this Panel has found no evidence to support the baseless allegations against abortion providers.” said Vicki Saporta, President and CEO of the National Abortion Federation (NAF). “This political witch hunt has threatened the safety and security of abortion providers and the future of life-saving medical research for far too long, and this Panel should be disbanded.”
The National Abortion Federation (NAF) is the professional association of abortion providers. Our members include individuals, private and non-profit clinics, Planned Parenthood affiliates, women’s health centers, physicians’ offices, and hospitals who together care for approximately half the women who choose abortion in the U.S. and Canada each year. Our members also include public hospitals and both public and private clinics in Mexico City and private clinics in Colombia.
