Hart­zler shocked by abor­tion prac­tices

The Times-Tribune - - World -

A spe­cial con­gres­sional com­mit­tee in­ves­ti­gat­ing abor­tion prac­tices has un­cov­ered “dark and dis­turb­ing” ac­tiv­i­ties that its Repub­li­can mem­bers be­lieve vi­o­late the law and women’s rights, says Mis­souri Con­gress­woman Vicky Hart­zler.

Ms. Hart­zler, a con­ser­va­tive law­maker from Har­risonville who op­poses abor­tion rights, serves on the House Se­lect Panel on In­fant Lives, which is ex­pected to is­sue a fi­nal re­port by the end of the year.

“We dis­cov­ered this en­tire hid­den in­dus­try,” Ms. Hart­zler said in an in­ter­view.

“You can go on­line and or­der these baby body parts just as if you were on Ama­zon.com,” the con­gress­woman said, re­fer­ring to web­sites where re­searchers can ob­tain prod­ucts such as fe­tal liver cells from pro­cure­ment com­pa­nies.
