Planned Parenthood Stole PPP Relief Money, Sold Baby Body Parts
Planned Parenthood has garnered so much political capital with Democrats that it not only wields death to the unborn, but the nation’s largest abortion corporation also thumbs its nose at the justice system.
Investigative journalists working with Project Veritas ran a successful sting operation that caught high-ranking Planned Parenthood officials bragging about selling baby body parts for profit. The video confessions demonstrate that Planned Parenthood knowingly broke the law. But as the videos went viral, California’s Democrat Attorney General Xavier Becerra filed 15 felony charges against investigative journalist David Daleiden. Despite the fact he should have enjoyed both journalist and whistleblower protections, the liberal California courts ran roughshod over him.
Along with facing prison time, Daleiden was slapped with a gag order from the notoriously anti-conservative Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals. The so-called “Nutty Ninth” deliberately violated his First Amendment rights by ordering him not to publish factual evidence of the crimes.
What will really make you want to tear your hair out in frustration is the fact that recently revealed documents reveal Planned Parenthood officials testified under oath during civil proceedings that they did, in fact, sell baby body parts for profit.
“I knew (Planned Parenthood Los Angeles) was getting payments because I was a provider there,” Planned Parenthood official Dr. Deborah Nucatola reportedly testified. She also indicated that she never reviewed compliance records.
Planned Parenthood, backed by pro-abortion politicians, pushed a false narrative that the investigative videos were “deceptively edited.” Once the case was heard away from the biased Ninth Circuit, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit vehemently disagreed. The videos show Planned Parenthood officials such as director Dr. Mary Gatter haggling over costs, bargaining for higher payments of intact dead babies, and finally saying she wants to make enough cash to buy “a Lamborghini” from aborted infants.
Despite these troubling remarks, Planned Parenthood has yet to face equal justice under the law. Instead, the abortion factories recently pilfered off upwards of $80 million in stimulus money intended to support honest small businesses. The stimulus legislation makes only businesses with less than 500 employees eligible. Planned Parenthood is a massive and ineligible organization.
“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,” Florida Sen. Marco Rubio reportedly 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.”
Everyday Americans who faced uncertainty as the pandemic escalated may be even more troubled to know that Planned Parenthood refused calls to help combat the spread of COVID-19. Instead, the conglomerate withheld medical equipment and supplies from infected communities. The abortion clinics became dangerous places as officials put profits over the lives of women.
“Across the country, Planned Parenthood refused to cease its abortion operation in the wake of the pandemic, hoarding personal protective equipment and putting its staff and women at risk,” an SBA List spokesperson reportedly said.
Along with Sen. Rubio, other Republicans have urged the U.S. Department of Justice to open a fraud investigation into Planned Parenthood’s apparent theft.
