In light of the Center for Medical Progress undercover video investigation of Planned Parenthood, exposing the abortion giant for selling and haggling over intact baby parts and at times, entire baby cadavers, Planned Parenthood CEO Cecile Richards has claimed Congress can't defund the organization because women won't have access to healthcare. Further, she's said the medical community can't "absorb" Planned Parenthood patients should the organization be stripped of $500 million in annual taxpayer funding.
First, Planned Parenthood is capable of successfully operating without taxpayer funding. Second, there are a number of health clinics around the country more than capable of taking on more patients.

Meanwhile, the House Oversight Committee is now investigating how Planned Parenthood uses taxpayer funding and how Health and Human Services distributes taxpayer funds to the organization.
