Rep. Fred Upton, R-Mich., speaks in Washington on Nov. 13, 2013. Two stealthily recorded videos of Planned Parenthood officials casually discussing how they provide aborted fetal organs for research have pushed the group and its Democratic allies onto the defensive. Yet it’s unclear how lasting any political damage will be, or if abortion foes’ charges that the organization has broken federal laws are valid. Three congressional committees are making inquiries, including the House Energy and Commerce Committee led by Mr. Upton, which wants a briefing from a doctor on the video. Mr. Upton said in a brief interview that "at the end of the day, she’ll testify," by subpoena if necessary. Hearings seem likely. (AP Photo/Charles Dharapak, File)
