Planned Parenthood does not have a good track record at all and it just got worse. $1.3 billion worse. The organization that deliberately covers up cases of statutory rape is now under scrutiny for losing $1.3 billion in taxpayer dollars.
Planned Parenthood had been the recipient of over $2 billion from the Federal Government, but an audit by the General Accounting Office can only account for a little over $6 million of that. Where did the rest of the money go?
From the Washington Times:
|A new report from the U.S. Government Accountability Office (GAO) on federal tax money funneled into Planned Parenthood and similar organizations raises more questions than it answers about the nation’s largest abortion chain.
Planned Parenthood Federation of America’s (PPFA) audits show the organization spent just $657.1 million between 2002 and 2008 from federal government grants and programs, but the abortion behemoth’s own annual reports show that it took in $2.3 billion from government grants and programs during the same time period.
That’s not pocket change. Why the discrepancy?
Yes. That is a good question, one that the CEO of PP should be made to answer, preferably in front of a Congressional panel with the C-SPAN cameras running.
|Someone, then, needs to explain to all those people why $2.3 billion in tax dollars have been doled out to an organization that admits to systematically having killed more than 1.8 million pre-born babies between 2002 and 2008 and then reports it only spent $657.1 million in federal dollars.
Has Planned Parenthood managed to tuck away megamillions of our tax dollars, seemingly unnoticed? Or is that much of its government funding coming from sources other than the federal government? Or is there a problem with the way Planned Parenthood is reporting its expenditure of our federal monies?
In just two weeks, Planned Parenthood will complete its 2009-10 fiscal year. Yet it still has not released its annual report for its 2008-09 fiscal year. In light of the discrepancy revealed in this GAO report, we must ask: What is Planned Parenthood trying to keep secret?
And as a futher question, we must ask why the leftists and other pro-abortion people are so silent on this issue. After all, if a pro-life group suddenly couldn’t account for $1.3 billion in taxpayer funds, the pro-abortion lobby would be demanding someone’s head on a platter.
