A top congressional Republican is giving no indication that last week's fatal shootings at a Planned Parenthood clinic in Colorado will affect a House probe of the group for providing fetal tissue to researchers.

House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy told reporters Monday that a special committee GOP leaders created to investigate Planned Parenthood is the best way to get to the truth about the organization. He noted that the panel has members from both parties.
