Boulder abortion doctor investigated by congressional panel


A Boulder doctor among the few in the profession who performs late-term abortions is being investigated by a congressional panel that he alleges is a ruse by anti-abortion politicians to paint "targets" on the backs of doctors and other medical professionals who provide abortions."This is legislative harassment," Dr. Warren Hern said. "When they do this kind of thing — this has been the pattern for decades — they identify doctors to be assassinated."Hern, who operates the Boulder Abortion Clinic, which opened in 1975, said he was notified of the investigation by the House Select Investigative Panel on Infant Lives about a week before the Nov. 8 election.According to a letter from Rep. Marsha Blackburn that Hern provided to the Daily Camera, the panel is seeking information on the procurement and transfer of fetal tissue, whether Hern has been paid for tissue and whether he or any of his staff has held positions at an institute that receives such tissue from his clinic.
