Planned Parenthood financial growthA pro-life organization tells OneNewsNow the federal government continues to fund abortion facilities that have allegedly violated federal law.

At the request of Congress, the General Accounting Office (GAO) issues a report every couple of years on how Planned Parenthood spends the taxpayer dollars it receives.

"This most recent report confirms that Planned Parenthood and its affiliates, they spent $288 million in federal funding and another $1.2 billion in funding from Medicaid, so that's their Medicaid reimbursements," reports Mallory Quigley of the Susan B. Anthony List.

Remember the scandal involving the harvesting and sale of aborted baby body parts for profit? Quigley sheds light on that, because for the first time ever, the GAO report breaks down Planned Parenthood's funding received by affiliates.

"The top five affiliates total $544 million, and four of those top five recipients are under investigation for their role in the baby body parts scandal," the pro-lifer relays.

Congress' Select Investigative Panel on Infant Lives conducted an exhaustive investigation and referred requests to various states and the Department of Justice for criminal prosecution. That includes the recipients Quigley mentions.

Susan B. Anthony List finds it bad enough that the Planned Parenthood abortion cartel continues to get over a half billion tax dollars per year, but it’s worse that alleged violators of federal law continue to line their pockets with federal money.
