Report: Planned Parenthood took in $1.2 billion taxpayer dollars over 3 yearsBy Cassy Fiano
Live Action News - March 16, 2017
The United States Government Accountability Office has just released a report revealing that, between the years 2013 and 2015, Planned Parenthood took in $1.5 billion in taxpayer dollars, with most of the funds coming from the Department of Health and Human Services and the U.S. Agency for International Development.
Throughout those three years, the abortion corporation spent over $288 million in government funds, as well as $1.2 billion in Medicaid reimbursements. This is despite the fact that Planned Parenthood’s health care services have continued to decrease while its abortions have increased — even though nationally, abortions have decreased. And while Planned Parenthood claims to be the nation’s foremost health care provider for women, this couldn’t be further from the truth.
Planned Parenthood claims to provide prenatal care, but this is mostly a lie. A Live Action investigation found that in the vast majority of locations, the abortion profiteer provides little to no prenatal services. Once the deception was exposed, Planned Parenthood scrubbed prenatal care services from most online listings. Planned Parenthood is also not interested in adoption, either; in fact, for every adoption referral they make, 160 children are aborted.
