Who was authorized to apply for this and just as important, who let it through? Planned Parenthood is too big to be receiving these funds. Money can be an addiction, a mental illness. Democrats will even insist on their money if they couldn’t spend it. Planned Parenthood is not only murdering the unborn but they’re also an arm of the DNC. All of this flies in the face of “being safe” with the coronvirus killing people.
The CEO of the Planned Parenthood affiliate in Washington, DC, Laura Meyers, asked for money just months after publicly saying they’d turn down funds.
“Planned Parenthood is never going to allow the Trump-Pence administration to bully us into withholding critical health information from our patients,” Meyers said in August 2019.
Planned Parenthood needs to put up or shut up
Talk is cheap. How often are words thrown around in Washington? If Planned Parenthood wants to continue receiving federal funds, you need to put your money where you mouth is. Leave abortions out of it and just do the women’s care you profess to do. The Small Business Administration just called you on it, knowing you’d sneak around to get what you wanted anyhow.
Several Republican Senators, including Marco Rubio, R-Fla called for an investigation.
“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,” Rubio said.“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.”
Senator Josh Hawley, R-Mo tweeted, “The money needs to be recovered and if anybody knowingly falsified applications, they need to be prosecuted.”
Senator Rick Scott, R-Fla chimed in, “Yet another example of the #PPP program being misused. Florida’s taxpayers should not be footing to bail out a huge organization like Planned Parenthood. This money should be returned immediately.”
Senator James Lankford, R-Okla said it best. “Every dollar Planned Parenthood took from PPP was a dollar that did not get to legitimate small businesses.”
“With an annual budget of over one billion dollars and the explicit Small Business Administration affiliation rules made it clear that Planned Parenthood was not and is not eligible for the Paycheck Protection Program,” Lankford added. “Like other large organizations that returned monies they were not eligible for, Planned Parenthood should immediately repay the American people the money they took from deserving small businesses and non-profits.”
Never let a good crisis go to waste
It’s ironic liberals scream we have to “be safe” so people don’t die from the coronavirus. At the same time, babies are being murdered. If they were being consistent, Planned Parenthood and affiliates would indeed provide women’s care and back off on abortions.
“Across the country, Planned Parenthood refused to cease its abortion operation in wake of the pandemic, hoarding personal protective equipment and putting its staff and women at risk,” an advocate for the Susan B. Anthony List told Fox News.
“It is rich that they, in turn, feel entitled to taxpayer dollars meant to help businesses in need,” the publicist continued.”After decades of feeding at the taxpayer’s trough while running the nation’s largest abortion operation, they have over a billion dollars in net assets. They should return this funding immediately. We thank President Trump for his strong commitment to stop taxpayer funding of abortion and abortionists like Planned Parenthood.”
Planned Parenthood is not in need, quit being pigs
Planned Parenthood claimed a record number of abortions in January. Affiliates asserted 345,672 abortions were performed between Oct. 1, 2017 and Sept. 30, 2018. At the same time, it was insisted only a small percentage, just 4%, were abortions.
The vast majority, or 98% of PPP loans are under $1 million. The average is $118,000. Some funds have been canceled or returned. They can still be used in the future.
Now Planned Parenthood does much more than abortions and the abortions they do are paid for privately not with Government funds in any way.
Now those who think they can stop abortions should go backa nd look at why Abortion became legal in the first place, no one could control abortions so they decide it was better to have it done in a safe clean place instead of in a backroom or the back of a station wagon parked some place or self abortins.
Some seem to be so narrow minded and think they cans top abortions by closing aborton clinics, which only means the person will go some place else and get the abortion. Now prohibition should have shown you that years ago.
You have not studied or lived through the history of abortion. It was invented by a white women to kill off the black race in the U.S. and the world as the made up necessity of abortion spread. It had nothing to do with abortion in reality. Women use to have the babies and put them up for adoption knowing they did not murder the baby. The feminist movement needed a reason to build their organization and pushed their free love movement so they bitched that women were dying in fake doctors’ filthy rooms in bad neighborhoods away from the woman’s neighborhoods so noone they knew the woman or teenager had been having sex. When the condom and the pill were invented the feminist movement claimed women needed legal abortions because the condom failed a lot and the pill was physically dangerous, not proven safe yet. Than it was a women’s health situation to keep doing the abortions because women wanted convenience in their lives. The free love movement grew along side of the feminist movement convincing women had to give free sex to men because it’s the woman’s body to with what she wants and it feels good so use sex for your fun and/or to get the guy to marry you until he leaves you with a bunch of kids, get an abortion so you and the guy can do free sex, well, for him. Men didn’t have to pay for sex any more thanks to the women’s movement. See how women can be twisted to believe the right to do with her body is for her when in reality it became for the man and killed a baby who could have adopted by two people who desperately wanted a child but could not have one for various reasons usually medical. The narrow people are those who think it is okay to murder a baby, to steal the baby’s right to live while the woman walks away from the murder with her body in one piece and ready for lunch instead of laying in a garbage can like the dead baby. The white woman who started abortion, well, it worked out for her too, in the city of NY the black race is not replacing itself since killing their young is considered good for her body and necessary for her life. Prohibition was for those who could not stop drinking while abortion mentally pays the woman killing her babies back when the woman’s children find out what mummy did and that the kids might have been one of her abortions and they look at their “mother” in a different light. They realize unlike the mommy having the abortion that their life was not stolen from them but they had brothers and sisters who had their lives stolen from them. Either way, murder or stolen, abortion ends up ruining families because of the indoctrination of the need for abortion. It is still stealing the life of a person, a human and that is murder. The made up Supreme Court decision abortion was necessary for the “privacy” needed to murder a baby which is true actually, since murderers don’t like witnesses when they murder someone. However privacy was never in the Constitution for a right for a citizen in our country to use to do anything not allowed in the Ten Commandments on which our law system and Constitution are based on.
Funny how the high income Taxpayer isn’t eligible for these handouts but a 1 Billion dollar firm appears to be. Now that they have been found out they will use those funds to fight in court to argue that they are entitled to them. What a bunch of sick ghouls.
What a stupid and sick system that would allow it and not even question it. The Law supposedly said no taxpayer dollars are to be used for abortion but good ‘ole Devil Obama and his murderous followers are able to do it anyway.
ABORT PPP !
