Planned Parenthood Missing some of the $1.3 billion in taxpayers’ money

A U.S. Government Accountability Office report says Planned Parenthood Federation of America cannot find some $1.3 billion given to it by the federal government from 2002 through 2008.

In response to an information request from 26 House members and five senators, the GAO report said that Planned Parenthood had received $2.02 billion in federal grants from 2002 through 2008 but that the nation’s largest abortion-industry player only reported spending $657.1 million of the taxpayer funds.

The report issued at the request of House Minority Leader John Boehner has several footnotes saying that the Department of Health and Human Services did not report federal funds that were “obligated” for the International Planned Parenthood Federation or its member associations from 2002 to 2009.

Rita Diller of the American Life League affiliate group Stop Planned Parenthood says the GAO report, Table Seven, clearly shows a lot of money is missing.

“The report shows that Planned Parenthood spent $657.1 million, but their own reports show they took in about $2 billion in federal money during the same time period. That leaves the question, ‘Where’s the $1.3 billion that is unaccounted for?’” Diller asked.

Politifact mentions our assertion that Planned Parenthood didn’t spend all of the money it received from the Government

We noticed one argument made by several websites and columnists recently, that Planned Parenthood was awarded more money from the federal government than it spent.

Politifact says it is all in how one counts the money.  We respect Politifact but don’t think the story deserves a “Pants on Fire” attribution.  We ask our readers to look at both side and make their own decision. Ultimately their attribution was not about us but about World Net Daily
