Suit charges widespread fraud by Planned Parenthood

Catholic World News - March 12, 2012

A former Planned Parenthood clinic director has testified that Planned Parenthood submitted up to 87,000 false claims for government reimbursement.

Abby Johnson, who converted to the pro-life cause and the Catholic faith after leaving Planned Parenthood, says that the organization routinely sought reimbursement for services that did not qualify for government funding. Her “whistleblower” lawsuit says that the organization increased revenue “by assigning a fraudulent purpose for a patient visit that would otherwise be non-billable.” The suit seeks $1 billion in damages.

    I'm glad to see the forces of right take additional action against what can only be called a terrorist organization. Sin leads to more sin; that's undeniable.
