GAO audit reveals that $1.5 billion went to three giant abortion providers, including Planned Parenthood and International Planned Parenthood
The study was led by Reps. Diane Black and Pete Olson and Senator Joni Ernst. Rep. Black’s office sent out a very helpful press release and a link to the full report.
There are many fascinating, revealing data points in the report. Here are just two.
#1. GAO “found that four of the five Planned Parenthood affiliates spending the largest amount of funds from federal programs during this period were later subject to referrals to the Department of Justice (DOJ) for possible criminal misconduct regarding fetal tissue transfer. The DOJ confirmed that an investigation is ongoing.”
#2. The $1.5 billion figure consisted of $410 million in federal funding spent “between 2013 and 2015” and another $1.2 billion that PPFA, Planned MSI, and IPPF received in “combined federal and state funds under federal health programs that require shared funding.”
