Oregon Democrats backtrack. Cancel Planned Parenthood Hearing. Is OHSU involved?

Oregon Democrats backtrack, cancel Planned Parenthood hearing
SALEM, Ore. (AP) - Days after agreeing to hold a hearing about Planned Parenthood, Oregon House Democrats have changed their minds.

House Speaker Tina Kotek said Monday that she believes Republicans would have turned the hearing into a "political stunt."

Nineteen House Republicans sent a letter in August requesting the hearing after anti-abortion activists released secretly recorded videos of Planned Parenthood executives. Republicans announced Friday that Health Care Committee Chairman Mitch Greenlick had agreed to schedule a hearing for Sept. 28.

But Kotek backtracked Monday, saying she would have supported a fact-based hearing, but Republicans made it clear that they intended to bring "D.C.-style games to the Oregon House."

House GOP spokeswoman Kara Walker says Kotek's move "stifles dialogue on an issue that is important to Oregonians from all walks of life."

Here's some information from Representative Bill Post, Oregon Congressman:

House Democrats cancel Planned Parenthood meeting could this letter be the reason?

Tonight House Speaker Tina Kotek and House Democrats cancelled the scheduled hearing on Monday to find out what is going on with Planned Parenthood in Oregon. Five House Republicans signed onto a records request from the Oregon Health Authority that will prove to be very valuable information. Was this perhaps the reason the hearing was cancelled so that this information would not be made public? What do OHSU and Planned Parenthood have to hide? 

There were questions for OHSU like:

The president of Planned Parenthood in a letter to congress indicated that you currently obtain post abortive tissue from Planned Parenthood to do research on placenta. How much money do you give Planned Parenthood for each placenta you receive?

Where is the deceased human embryo or fetus separated from the placenta? Who is responsible for this process? What happens to the deceased human embryo or fetus after it is separated?
Has OHSU ever received fetal organs from Planned Parenthood?
And questions for Planned Parenthood like:

1. Advanced Bioscience Resources, Inc. is the oldest fetal organ company in the United States. Over the past 26 years ABR has partnered with multiple Planned Parenthood affiliates to obtain fetal organs. In the 9th video released by the Center for Medical Progress just after the 4th minute mark, the procurement manager for ABR states that she obtains fetal organs from clinics in Oregon.
Has Planned Parenthood in Oregon ever delivered fetal organs to Advanced Bioscience Resources?
What type of fetal organs did Planned Parenthood deliver to ABR?

2. Cecil Richards, the President of Planned Parenthood sent a letter to Congress on August 27 of this year where she stated that Planned Parenthood in Oregon currently provides OHSU with post-abortion tissue from which researchers extract the placental tissue they are studying.
Does the post abortion tissue that Planned Parenthood sends to OHSU include the tissue of the deceased human embryo or fetus?

3. In a video released on July 30, According to Dr. Savita Ginde, the Medical Director of Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountains, Colorado State University provided Planned Parenthood with $200 per specimen for its research on first trimester placental tissue. Is this the similar to the amount of money that Planned Parenthood in Oregon receives from OHSU?

4. According to the Associated Press OHSU received money from the National Institutes of Health from 2011 to 2014 for research involving human fetal tissue. Did any of the tissue obtained by OHSU for this research come from Planned Parenthood in Oregon?

5. Why types of fetal organs were provided to OHSU? Did you provide fetal livers? Did you provide fetal hearts? Did you provide fetal brains? Did you provide fetal lungs?
