She said that for Planned Parenthood, the “big ticket item” is abortion. Over 90 percent of pregnant women who come into one of their facilities will abort their babies.
“The idea that they are there to offer options or referrals to other services is just a farce, because my director told us that our goal was to create every phone call, every client visit into a revenue generating visit,” Abby explained.
“Well if a woman comes in and she’s pregnant, the only way we can do that is by selling her an abortion, because we don’t do pre-natal care. Planned Parenthood does not provide pre-natal care at any of their clinics across the country. They don’t do adoption services. They don’t make money off of that. So the only way we can make money was to sell a woman an abortion. We were given the directive to sell abortions,” she said.
Planned Parenthood spends millions of dollars on public relations in an effort to keep the $500 million-plus in taxpayer funding it receives coming its way each year. This year, because the abortion group was forced to admit it harvests and sells human organs from some of the more than 300,000 abortions it performs each year, it has upped its public relations’ ante. -The Federalist Staff

A new federal audit found that Planned Parenthood of North Texas overbilled taxpayers, including for “family planning” services for patients who were already sterilized. In 2013, then Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott announced that his office had obtained a $1.4 million settlement against Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast for Medicaid fraud, with the settlement to be split between the state of Texas, the federal government, and the whistleblower (former PPGC employee Karen Reynolds). PPGC “submitted more than $30 million in fraudulent bills between 2003 and 2009,” according to the Houston Chronicle.

Planned Parenthood of Illinois has agreed to pay the state $367,000 to settle a dispute over alleged overbilling of the Medicaid program by the non-profit's medical director...

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.
