Just days before the paycheck protection program (PPP) ran out of funds, the Biden administration sent $10 million in loans to Planned Parenthood of Greater New York.

Pro-life politicians have repeatedly called on the small business administration to investigate loans given to the abortion giant. PPP loans were intended to go to small businesses to help them cover payroll and operational costs during the pandemic. Towards this end, the PPP had a 500-employee cap for loan recipients. Planned Parenthood far exceeds this threshold.

“By our count, Planned Parenthood has slithered its way to obtain more than $85 million dollars in coronavirus relief loans through the Paycheck Protection Program guaranteed by the American people. Despite congressional regulations that were intended to disqualify them, Big Abortion has found a way to make the American people complicit in their nefarious dealings,” Penny Nance, president and CEO of Concerned Women for America, said in a statement to Live Action News. “Its latest move came through its Planned Parenthood of Greater New York affiliate who got a $10 million loan approved just days before the program ran out of money. This from a company which reported a record number of abortions in its last report, where they announced they made $69.7 million in profits. This is obscene by any reasonable measure and Congress should demand an immediate investigation.”

Pro-life legislators have been demanding such an investigation for months, but it appears as though the practice has continued.
