The Abortion Lobby's Shell Game




From Martin Fox, President
National Pro-Life Alliance

As investigations by your National Pro-Life Alliance and other pro-life and law enforcement groups have shown, Planned Parenthood staff across the country have again and again:

*** Actively abetted minors in avoiding laws that require parental notification -- even if the minor girl is a likely victim of rape.

*** Concealed life or death information on the risks of surgical and drug abortions.

*** Covered up sex trafficking of young girls in violation of laws requiring them to advise authorities.

*** Kept such shoddy accounting practices that it is a lie for them to say that no taxpayer funds are used for abortion.

But that begs the question.

Are the claims by Planned Parenthood true that their so-called "women's health centers" really service women's health needs?

Or are their claims merely a smoke screen for maximizing the money they spend to perform and promote abortions?

Looking at the evidence, it's clear to me that the second interpretation is true.

As you and other NPLA members know, Planned Parenthood gets your tax dollars both in direct government grants and as reimbursement for "costs" of abortion.

But they get even more of your tax money, supposedly for "other services."

But in case after case, evidence shows these other services are a sham.

For example, in Texas, former Planned Parenthood director Abby Johnson filed a whistleblower lawsuit, charging that the Houston area Planned Parenthood knowingly sent in some $6 million in false claims to Medicaid and covered up its actions.

The suit states the Houston area abortion facility sent in more than 87,000 reimbursement claims for services that were "false, fraudulent, and/or ineligible."

Secondly, in California, former Planned Parenthood financial officer, Victor Gonzalez, says his internal audit estimated Planned Parenthood overcharged California taxpayers $180 million since the late 1990's in the Los Angeles area alone.

And these two examples are just the tip of the iceberg, as more whistleblowers continue to come out of the woodwork.

The bottom line is, it doesn't matter how Planned Parenthood gets their hands on tax dollars.

Whenever taxpayer dollars flow to Planned Parenthood, you can be sure they will find a way to use them to subsidize their deadly abortion business.

That's why Planned Parenthood must not see a penny from taxpayers for any reason and why your continued support of NPLA efforts is so important.

And also why I hope you will help ratchet up the pressure to cut the taxpayer funding completely and crank up the heat in Congress to pass the "No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act" to end ALL taxpayer funding for abortionists.
