Whistleblower alleges Medicaid fraud by Planned Parenthood

Catholic World News - July 12, 2012

A woman who once worked as a Planned Parenthood clinic director in Iowa has filed suit against her former employer, alleging that it illegally billed Medicaid for abortion-related procedures. The US and state attorneys general have both declined to pursue the matter.

“Our decision to decline intervention at this time follows an extensive review of the case with federal and state investigators, and an extensive review of a large volume of evidence,” said Iowa Attorney General Tom Miller. “We reserve the right to intervene at a later date upon the showing of good cause.”
