The billion-dollar abortion conglomerate Planned Parenthood spent an eye-boggling amount of money in taxpayer funds pushing the radical pro-abortion agenda over a three-year period, according to a new Government Accountability Office report.
Life News writes:
From 2016 to 2018 alone, 39 Planned Parenthood affiliates received $271 million in federal grants for “family planning” services, including $88 million in 2016, $93 million in 2017 and $89 million in 2018, the Daily Wire reports.
That total does not include the $1.3 billion in state and federal Medicaid reimbursements that Planned Parenthood affiliates received during that same time period, according to the report.
Most of the non-Medicaid money came from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Office of Population Affairs for family planning services, the Government Accountability Office found.
Within that time period, President Donald Trump’s administration took action to cut off several of Planned Parenthood’s streams of taxpayer funding. However, Planned Parenthood sued to block the cuts.
The Trump administration did succeed in defunding Planned Parenthood from the Title X program, from which it received about $60 million a year, but only after a lengthy court battle, one that still is not completely over. Additionally, some pro-abortion governors made up for a portion of the cuts by giving their own state taxpayers’ money to the abortion chain instead.
