According to the federal government, thirty-seven Planned Parenthood affiliates filed for a total of $80 million in loans from the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) despite the fact that they weren’t eligible for the loans.

The Planned Parenthood affiliates received the money. Now the federal government wants the money back.

As Fox News’ “Tucker Carlson Tonight” reports, the Small Business Administration (SBA) is contacting the Planned Parenthood affiliates to point out affiliates of larger organizations with more than 500 employees cannot receive PPP funds. Fox News noted, “The Planned Parenthood Federation of America (PFFA) alone has had more than 600 employees.”

SBA noted that if the Planned Parenthood affiliates made knowingly false statements, criminal or civil sanctions could be imposed, adding, “PPFA’s bylaws, a version of which is publicly available, reveal that becoming a PPFA affiliate requires a certification by the PPFA board. Once certified, each Affiliate shall be governed by written bylaws, which conform to PPFA polices.”

On Tuesday evening, Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) stated

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. 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.

Last August, after the Trump administration said it would cut off federal funds from Planned Parenthood if it made abortion referrals, Planned Parenthood’s president and CEO, Laura Meyers, boasted, “Planned Parenthood is never going to allow the Trump-Pence administration to bully us into withholding critical health information from our patients,” asserting that the organization would reject federal funds rather than obey the Trump administration’s order.

The Daily Wire reported in January:

Abortion provider (and corporate welfare recipient) Planned Parenthood is committing $45 million to helping Democrats get elected in 2020, the group announced Friday, and launching a massive new effort called “We Decide 2020” to help fans of “reproductive choice” win or keep elected office.

The “stakes have never been higher,” Planned Parenthood’s website whines. “More than three-fourths of voters say abortion should remain safe and legal. There is no state in which banning abortion is popular. But anti-abortion politicians continue to try to undermine our rights and our access to reproductive health care, putting the ability of many people to obtain birth control, safe and legal abortion, and accurate sexual education in question — yet again.”

“We decide who our leaders are. We decide our future,” the website for “We Decide 2020” says. “At the ballot box this year, we — not out-of-touch politicians — decide what we do with our own bodies.”

    An evil giant corporation stealing money that should go to help poor Americans but they stole it to murder more babies and sell their body parts. And they want to affect elections to further their inhumane agenda.

    We want our money back!!

  • Shari says:

    They knowingly falsified information to get the money so file fraud charges against every one of them that don’t return the funds.

    This is very dis-concerning, I know of dozens of families who have not received their stimulus checks and really need the support. Here we have a public funded billion dollar organization that claims 3/4 of the voting population is in favor of late term abortions, which is a lie. Most older voters are against abortion of any kind other then necessary to save the woman’s life. Most teens ages of 12 – 18 are against abortions because they rationalize that they could have been aborted if their parents approved of abortions. The ones who want unlimited abortions are those who do not want children or do not want anything standing in the way of their sexual freedom. These are also the same ones who have raised our sexually transmitted disease ( AIDS, Syphilis. herpes and gonorrhea) levels to astronomical heights. These are also the same people who feel that the U.S. Government should pay for condoms and the morning after pill and the killing of unwanted children. In other words, Planned Parenthood. I am an old guy (76) and I remember when Americas followed the policy of “A slip of the lip will sink a ship so, zip it up” . I think that policy would be appropriate for all the guys who can not keep it in their pants. “:Zip it up “.

    Planned Parenthood calls it “reproductive health care”. The rest of us call it murder.

    Time to pull PP tax exempt status and that way taxpayers won’t fund it anymore.
