Abortion Giant “Won’t Get Caught”?

By Matthew Clark1339602307000

Planned Parenthood’s mentality that abortion trumps all, including the law, has once again been exposed for the world to see.

Abby Johnson, a former Planned Parenthood clinic director turned pro-life advocate, details just how far she witnessed Planned Parenthood was willing to go to enrich its abortion empire – what she contends was Planned Parenthood openly committing fraud. She wrote:

I remember the meeting like it was yesterday. All of the clinic directors assembled in the main conference room. Sitting in a sort of squared-circle facing each other.

We were being told that we had all been guilty of fraudulent billing to the state and federal government. We didn’t even know that we had been participating in the fraud. We were all sitting there in silence. What did this mean? Were we in trouble? Could we potentially get in trouble? So, I broke the silence. I simply asked, “What are we going to do about the money we shouldn’t have received?” The response, “We are going to hope we don’t get caught.” But…”What if we do get caught? Can we be held responsible?” She then went into a long story about a similar situation she had once been in at a clinic where she once worked. The moral of the story was, yes, we could all be held responsible…but not to worry, “we” wouldn’t get caught.

A couple years later, I left Planned Parenthood. I talked to several attorneys about that meeting. I knew what I had been involved in was wrong, and I knew Planned Parenthood needed to be held accountable. That meeting had nothing to do with pro-life or pro-choice issues; this was about our tax dollars and fiscal responsibility.

It’s an all too familiar story. Fortunately, she is not the only former Planned Parenthood employee willing stand up for what is right.

We represent two such employees, in California and Texas, in two of the largest lawsuits against the abortion industry in the country.

Karen Reynolds, a former Health Center Assistant at a Texas Planned Parenthood clinic, blew the whistle on Planned Parenthood. We represent Reynolds in a case alleging millions of dollars of fraudulent overbilling of the government – the taxpayers.

Our lawsuit alleges that over a ten-year period of time Planned Parenthood billed federal and state governments for services that were never rendered or services that were known to be unnecessary. Even worse, the lawsuit alleges that Planned Parenthood improperly sought reimbursement from the government for abortion-related services – taxpayers being forced to pay for abortion-related services in violation of the law.

In California, we represent the Chief Financial Officer of a Planned Parenthood affiliate there in a suit alleging over $100 million dollars in fraudulent overbilling of federal and state governments. We have already taken this case up to the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals and won, allowing this critical lawsuit to move to trial.

It is vital that we not only expose the abortion giant, but hold it accountable for what it has done. Of course, it also begs the question: Why does Planned Parenthood need nearly half a billion of our tax dollars?
