House Republicans advanced a recommendation for legal proceedings against a California company that contracted with Planned Parenthood for fetal tissue, after their Democratic colleagues walked out of the hearing in protest.
Democrats and Republicans spent the hearing arguing over whether the House Select Panel on Infant Lives has the legal authority to hold StemExpress in contempt of Congress for failing to comply with a subpoena for documents that could show whether the company illegally profited from the tissue.
After Republicans blocked several attempts by Democrats to table the recommendation and end the hearing, the Democrats left the hearing in protest.
