Rep. Cliff Stearns, R-Fla., is calling for congressional hearings into Planned Parenthood following the death of a woman after she had an abortion at a Chicago clinic. Tonya Reaves, 24, died of hemorrhaging following the abortion and her death has been ruled an accident, Fox News reported.

"I would like to put them under oath," Stearns told Fox News. "I would like to find out how they spend our half a billion dollars, and I would also like to explore some of the safety aspects, particularly in light of this death, of this tragedy."

The Susan B. Anthony List has also called for a congressional probe of the death.

"Congress has an obligation to exercise clear and regular oversight of businesses like Planned Parenthood that receive hundreds of millions of dollars in taxpayer funding and have such dramatic impact on the lives of women and unborn children," Susan B. Anthony List President Marjorie Dannenfelser said according to Fox. "We must not allow Tonya Reaves to have died in vain, but rather heed this warning and call on Congress to exercise its full capacity to investigate Planned Parenthood."
