Statement from Live Action:
We are delighted to receive the news of the GAO’s investigation of Planned Parenthood and other pro-abortion groups. It is past time that these organizations be called out for their rampant abuses of taxpayers’ trust and funds – especially in the wake of Planned Parenthood’s recent multimillion dollar settlement of a Medicaid fraud case in Texas.
But here is some news for the Government Accountability Office, and for all Americans: our government funds 45% of Planned Parenthood’s billion-dollar budget, thus helping America’s largest abortion corporation continue to destroy human lives. As sickening as these stories of Planned Parenthood defrauding the poor through Medicaid are, we all need to hold the government accountable where it matters most.
As Live Action has documented again and again, Planned Parenthood is also complicit in widespread sexual abuse cover up, the willingness to aid and abet sexual traffickers, the spreading of egregious medical misinformation, sex-selective abortions, and other crimes against women and children. The abortion industry is rife with abuse, fraud, and waste – all of which can be expected from those who are willing to prey on our weakest citizens for profit. But even a 100% clean abortion center is still an unspeakable evil, because no accounting gimmick or company retraining will sanitize the fact of what abortion is–a horrific violence against a helpless child.
Live Action remains committed to bringing Big Abortion down at its foundations. We invite every congressman, senator, and American of conscience to join us.
Live Action is a youth-led movement dedicated to building a culture of life and ending the human rights abuse of abortion. The group uses new media to educate the public about the humanity of the unborn and investigative journalism to expose threats against the vulnerable and defenseless.
