    WASHINGTON (AP) -- In Planned Parenthood's first congressional appearance since being embarrassed by surreptitiously recorded videos, a House committee chairman insisted Tuesday that the organization does not need federal money and spends much of it on political activities.

    Rep. Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah, made the remarks to Cecile Richards, the group's president, as she waited to testify before his House Oversight and Government Reform Committee. Her appearance marked the group's first public face-to-face encounter with Republicans since videos began emerging this summer showing the organization's officials discussing how they provide fetal tissue for research.

    Chaffetz lashed out at the organization for what he called "exorbitant" spending for salaries, travel, parties and lobbying.

    "That's money that's not going to women's health care," said Chaffetz. He added, "It's a political organization."

    The videos have made cutting Planned Parenthood's federal money a top-tier priority for Republicans and conservatives.

    Funding planned parenthood has little to do with care for women. Since about 50% of the aborted are female I fail to see how this helps women at all. This baby killing factory is a slush fund for (D) politicians, baby killers and other immoral money grubbing human filth.

    Baby killing is immoral and those who partake or participate will, in the end, pay the price for their behavior in my opinion.
