The Obama administration is being investigated for involvement with Planned Parenthood’s alleged sale of aborted fetal organs. Life News reports the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform is conducting the investigation. 


The investigation will determine if the Obama administration gave Planned Parenthood any federal grants that supported “transactions involving fetal tissue.” 


A report from GAO found that Planned Parenthood received $344.5 million in federal funding and $1.2 billion from Medicaid over a period of three years. 


Now the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform is requesting that HHS Secretary Sylvia Burwell and Planned Parenthood President Cecile Richards produce documentation relating to federal grants. 


Planned Parenthood and the Obama administration have until Aug. 28 to respond to the request for documentation.
