Select Panel Holds Company in Contempt of Congress

On September 21, the Select Investigative Panel on Infant Lives voted to hold in contempt of Congress StemExpress, LLC for failing to comply with subpoenas issued by the panel. The subpoenas requested information to determine whether the company engaged in business practices that profited from the sale of fetal tissue.

Eight Republican members of the panel approved the report recommending the contempt citation; Democrat members of the panel walked out in protest of the mark-up.

The House Energy and Commerce Committee established the panel following allegations that Planned Parenthood of America illegally profited from the sale of fetal tissue (see The Source, 10/9/15).
