The head of Planned Parenthood defended herself and her organization Tuesday against intense scrutiny on Capitol Hill, where congressional lawmakers used a committee hearing to question her about her salary, the organization’s spending and where federal funding to the organization goes.

In his opening statement, Rep. Jason Chaffetz, a Utah Republican and chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, said Planned Parenthood President Cecile Richards receives a salary of $600,000.
