According to a new report examining audits of Planned Parenthood and its affiliates in multiple states, the nation's largest abortion provider and locations which work with it have cost taxpayers at least $12.8 million in fraud.
"The extent of waste and abuse in the nation's family planning programs, and specifically in those operated by Planned Parenthood, is beyond disturbing," Chuck Donovan, president of the pro-life Charlotte Lozier Institute (CLI), declared in a statement announcing the report.
"Our updated report to Congress documents data from over 50 public audits that point to massive fraud, waste, and abuse by this billion-dollar abortion giant," declared Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF) Senior Counsel Steven H. Aden. "In light of the now-established fact that nearly one in four Planned Parenthood businesses has been implicated in financial fraud or mismanagement, Congress has an opportunity—and obligation—to protect taxpayers."
