Kansas Medical Board Investigation Clears Planned Parenthood

A Kansas medical board says it won’t take any action against Planned Parenthood following an investigation. The Kansas Board of Healing Arts was investigating whether Planned Parenthood of Kansas and Mid-Missouri was involved in selling fetal tissue. The investigation was ordered by Governor Sam Brownback last year.
Laura McQuade, with Planned Parenthood, says the report came out last week, and she says they feel "vindicated." She claims the governor made inaccurate statements when saying he’d block Medicaid funding from going to the organization.

“He was well aware that we were cleared of any inappropriate activity long before the State of the State Address on Monday evening,” says McQuade.
A spokeswoman for Governor Brownback, Eileen Hawley, said in a statement that they will review the findings of the Board of Healing Arts. She says the administration will continue to fight for “the most vulnerable among us.”
