Hartzler shocked by abortion practices


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,” the congresswo­man said, referring to websites where researcher­s can obtain products such as fetal liver cells from procuremen­t companies.
