Under investigation for fraud
Planned Parenthood receives hundreds of millions of our tax dollars in funding, but they're alleged to have filed more than 500,000 false, fraudulent, or ineligible Medicaid claims - charges that carry fines of more than 5.5 billion dollars.
"Americans deserve to know, especially in economic times like these, if their hard-earned tax money is being funneled to groups that are misusing it; compliance with the law should not be sacrificed for the sake of Planned Parenthood's bottom line. They have taken advantage of the American taxpayer for too long."
Michael J. Norton, Alliance Defending Freedom Senior Counsel, former U.S. Attorney
