Planned Parenthood snuffed out the lives of 345,672 unborn infants last year, bragged about unlawfully selling the body parts of dead babies, withheld vital medical equipment during the COVID-19 surge, and recently swindled $80 million from the American people.
“There is no ambiguity in the legislation that passed or public record around its passage that organizations such as Planned Parenthood, whose parent organization has close to half a billion dollars in assets, is not eligible for the Paycheck Protection Program,” Florida Sen. Marco Rubio reportedly said. “Those funds must be returned immediately. Furthermore, the SBA should open an investigation into how these loans were made in clear violation of the applicable affiliation rules, and if Planned Parenthood, the banks, or staff at the SBA knowingly violated the law, all appropriate legal options should be pursued.”
The massive abortion corporation continues to run roughshod over the justice system and common decency. Although the national chain of abortion centers operates with impunity due to the protections provided by Democrat politicians and biased liberal judges, criminal accountability is long overdue.
Rather than join the effort to save lives, the organizations that haggled and bragged about selling the parts of dead to the highest bidder to pull down enough cash to buy “a Lamborghini” hoarded supplies. Planned Parenthood put profit over the lives of women by performing abortions with the risk of the contagion present.
“The money needs to be recovered, and if anybody knowingly falsified applications, they need to be prosecuted,” Missouri Sen. Josh Hawley reportedly said.
Stimulus money intended for small businesses with under 500 employees was swept up by the abortion conglomerate with ties to foreign entities. Planned Parenthood reportedly skirted the law by deceptively claiming each clinic was an “independent” operation. Nothing could be further from the truth.
In fiscal year 2019, Planned Parenthood took in upwards of $591.3 million in private contributions and had a reported total working budget of more than $1.3 billion to operate more than 600 abortion facilities. As the pandemic upended everyday life and put Americans at risk, the massive corporation refused to contribute its medical supplies, centers, and other resources, toward fighting the spread of COVID-19.
Recent documents indicate that the persecution of investigative journalists who exposed illegal selling of aborted baby parts was entirely wrong-headed and, perhaps, politically motivated. Planned Parenthood officials testified under oath that they knowingly sold baby body parts for profit.
“I knew (Planned Parenthood Los Angeles) was getting payments because I was a provider there,” Planned Parenthood r. Deborah Nucatola reportedly testified under oath.
The civil litigation she and other high-ranking abortion company officials testified in resulted in investigative journalists being slammed with felony charges by Democrat California Attorney General Xavier Becerra. The liberal extremists refused to acknowledge journalistic and whistleblower protections when the powerful Planned Parenthood got caught red-handed.
Democrats have allowed the well-funded abortion lobby to turn justice on its ear at every turn. Pilfering off $80 million in taxpayer funds meant to keep small businesses from going bankrupt during the pandemic must finally be the last straw.
“We need an investigation to get to the bottom of this and hold Planned Parenthood accountable,” Montana Sen. Steve Daines reportedly said. “These critical relief funds are meant for supporting our struggling small business owners and workers, not the nation’s largest abortion business, which sits on almost $2 billion in assets.”
