GAO Investigation: Planned Parenthood Funded Hundreds of Millions of Dollars To Kill Nearly 1 Million Babies In Last 3-Years?
In a shocking new investigation, the U.S. Government Accountability Office (GAO) will be determining what portion of Planned Parenthood’s budget, if any, goes toward killing babies through abortion.
Debbie Stabenow (D-MI) (4th L) speaks as (L-R) Sen. Mary Landrieu (D-LA), Sen. Barbara Mikulski (D-MD), Sen. Patty Murray (D-WA), and Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-CA) listen during a news conference about Planned Parenthood April 13, 2011 on Capitol Hill in Washington, DC. The women Democratic senators held a news conference to call on the Republicans not to cut funding for Planned Parenthood.
Planned Parenthood, one of the top depopulation agencies in America, will soon be under investigation and financial audit under the authority of the U.S. Government Accountability Office (GAO), to find out just how federal funds appropriated to the agency are being spent. Planned Parenthood’s budget has been a concern amongst many for years. The agency garnered over $500 million last year alone in U.S. taxpayer monies.
According to a report by Dave Bohon;
“Planned Parenthood performed a record 333,964 abortions last year — almost one million in the past three years,” said U.S. Senator David Vitter (R-La.), one of the lawmakers who requested the investigation. “At the same time, they also received more federal taxpayer dollars than ever before — a record $542 million, an 11 percent increase over the past two years.”
Vitter added that “Planned Parenthood and other organizations that provide abortions clearly benefit from Uncle Sam, but there’s no accounting to prove how they actually use that money. This GAO report would shine a light on how our tax dollars are being spent.”
Another of the lawmakers, U.S. Representative Diane Black (R-Tenn.), called the federal government’s funding of abortion providers “a serious problem in our nation. I am pleased with the decision from the GAO to investigate the use of taxpayer money designated to any abortion provider, particularly Planned Parenthood.” She said that the non-partisan study of “how much and for what purpose these dollars are allocated to all abortion providers is necessary for Congress to ensure accountability and oversight.”
By law no federal monies are to be used for abortion practices.
