Planned Parenthood Improperly Obtained $80M in Coronavirus Relief Funding

According to new reports, Planned Parenthood affiliates received $80 million in loans from the Small Business Administration’s Paycheck Protection Program that were meant for small businesses—despite regulations that specifically prohibited them.
Nearly 40 Planned Parenthood affiliates received the PPP loans. The largest went to Planned Parenthood of Orange and San Bernardino Counties in California, which had been caught selling the tissues and body parts of aborted babies; it received a $7.5 million PPP loan.
Pro-life advocates are now calling on the Trump administration to ensure the loans are repaid immediately. Susan B. Anthony List issued the following statement:

“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. It is rich that they, in turn, feel entitled to taxpayer dollars meant to help businesses in need. After decades of feeding at the taxpayer’s trough while running the nation’s largest abortion operation, they have nearly two billion dollars in net assets. They should return this funding immediately. We thank President Trump for his strong commitment to stop taxpayer funding of abortion and abortionists like Planned Parenthood.”

But reports indicate the effort to recover those funds is already underway. Several legislators, including Republican Sens. Ben Sasse, Marco Rubio, and Josh Hawley, have called on the administration to fire the officials who approved the loans, and to prosecute if any fraud is detected.
