Missouri Senators say state oversight of fetal remains is lacking

The Chairman of a state Senate committee formed to determine whether fetal remains are being sold in Missouri for profit said that committee’s first hearing has raised questions about whether state laws and regulations are strong enough to prevent it.

The committee was formed after the release of undercover videos alleging Planned Parenthood illegal sells fetal body parts after abortions.

It asked Department of Health and Senior Services director Gail Vasterling whether she investigated if that could be happening in St. Louis, before allowing the issuance of a permit for the Planned Parenthood facility in Columbia to resume abortions. Vasterling told the committee her staff has no knowledge of it, but testified no one at the Department investigates what happens to remains after it receives a pathology report for each abortion.
