Planned Parenthood should not receive federal dollars.
First, it is the largest abortion provider in the country, performing over 300,000 abortions per year.
But aside from that, fifty-one known audits of their affiliates’ billing procedures have shown almost $8.5 million in fraudulent Medicaid overpayments.
These federal audits have detailed Planned Parenthood’s misuse of Medicaid reimbursement for pre-abortion examinations and other services performed in conjunction with abortion.
That is why the new health care legislation redirects Federal Medicaid dollars from Planned Parenthood to Federally Qualified Healthcare Centers for one year. These health centers care for the whole family and aren’t driven by abortion.
Stand for Life! Repeal ObamaCare and replace it with a new health care bill that defunds Planned Parenthood.
