GAO report reveals massive taxpayer funding of Big Abortion

Wednesday, March 25, 2015

The following quote may be attributed to Alliance Defending Freedom Litigation Counsel Catherine Glenn Foster regarding a U.S. Government Accountability Office report released Wednesday which revealed that federal and state governments together provided nearly 1.7 billion taxpayer dollars to six pro-abortion groups (mostly to Planned Parenthood, which received $1.5 billion) from 2010-2012:

“The government should use the tax dollars of Americans responsibly, but this report confirms overwhelmingly that it has not. It’s bad enough that the government is funneling the hard-earned money of Americans to pay for elective abortions, contrary to what federal law is supposed to allow, but as ADF has reported annually to Congress, Planned Parenthood and other organizations have bilked taxpayers out of millions through waste, abuse, and potential fraud. That’s why Congress has been investigating Planned Parenthood, why some members of Congress have proposed additional legislation to help stop the funding stream, and why ADF will continue its fight in court against Planned Parenthood’s misuse of tax dollars in multiple lawsuits, including Thayer v. Planned Parenthood of the Heartland.”
