Department of Health and Senior Services Director Gail Vasterling has refused to tell the Senate committee investigating Planned Parenthood what hospital is providing admitting privileges to the Planned Parenthood facility in Columbia. State law requires abortion facilities to have such privileges at a hospital within 15 miles.

Vasterling said the name of the hospital is falls under confidentiality laws but Senator Kurt Schaefer (R-Columbia) disagrees and accused her of hiding its name.

“Whether it’s under compulsion from contempt under a subpoena or whether it’s judicial order, we are going to find out who that facility is, that they are bending every rule and every law to keep secret,” Schaefer said. He is threatening to find the agency in contempt of the Senate.
