PLANNED PARENTHOOD COMMITTED OVER $200 MILLION IN FRAUD, WILL IT BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE?
LifeNews.com – Walter Weber – 8/26/2014
In the case of Gonzalez v. PPLA, Mr. Gonzalez alleges that the California affiliates of Planned Parenthood systematically and illegally overbilled the state and federal government for birth control drugs and devices, including ones that can cause very early abortions. Basically, according to the complaint, when Planned Parenthood distributed such birth control to indigent persons, Planned Parenthood was allowed to seek government reimbursement for what Planned Parenthood paid for the birth control – Planned Parenthood’s “acquisition cost” – but WHAT PLANNED PARENTHOOD DID INSTEAD WAS BILL THE GOVERNMENT FOR MUCH HIGHER AMOUNTS, SOMETIMES MORE THAN TEN TIMES “ACQUISITION COST,” RESULTING IN ILLEGAL OVERCHARGES (AND PAYMENTS) IN EXCESS OF $200 MILLION.
As ACLJ Chief Counsel Jay Sekulow says, “No one should be allowed to scam the government – which means bilking the taxpayers. Our client accuses Planned Parenthood of cheating taxpayers out of more than $100 million. All we ask of the court of appeals is the chance to prove those allegations.”
We’ll continue our fight to hold Planned Parenthood, the largest abortion provider in America, accountable for their actions.
