Official list shows Planned Parenthood got more than $65 million in federal COVID-19 relief loans
07/09/2020 // Cassie B. // Views

This week, the Trump administration released a list of businesses that were given more than $150,000 in federal loans that were intended to address the financial hardship of coronavirus, and it shows how tax dollars were given to several abortion facilities.

The disclosure by the Small Business Administration came in response to inquiries by lawmakers about where the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) loans that were created by this spring’s CARES Act were distributed.

Although we have been hearing for a while that Planned Parenthood locations benefited from the loans, the full list reveals that 43 Planned Parenthood affiliates throughout the nation got loans of $150,000 or more – and some were a lot higher than that. For example, 16 affiliates got loans in the range of $1 to $2 million, another 16 got loans ranging from $2 to $5 million, three got loans in the range of $5 to $10 million, and eight were awarded loans of between $350,000 to $1 million. This brings the total amount received by Planned Parenthood affiliates to between $65.8 and $135 million of taxpayer dollars; it's hard to know the exact amount because the list only specified loan ranges.

As if that weren’t bad enough on its own, other pro-abortion organizations also collected loans, including the National Abortion Federation, NARAL Pro-Choice America Foundation, and the National Network of Abortion Funds, all of whom got loans from $350,000 to $1 million. Meanwhile, several independent abortion centers in states like Texas, Maine, Illinois, Virginia and Michigan got loans of between $150,000 and $1 million.


Calls for Planned Parenthood to return the money

When it was revealed in May that Planned Parenthood affiliates had obtained $80 million in federal PPP loans, the Small Business Administration notified the 37 affiliates involved that organizations that have more than 500 employees are not eligible for such loans and must return the money. In addition, they were said to be facing more “severe penalties” beyond mere repayment should they be found to have knowingly made false statements on their loan applications, such as civil or criminal punishment.

One of the requests came from a Planned Parenthood affiliate in Metropolitan Washington, who self-certified they were eligible for a PPP loan of $1.328 million. The request came just months after affiliate president Laura Meyers vowed to turn down federal funds.

One of the voices calling for the situation to be corrected was Florida Senator Marco Rubio, who said that Planned Parenthood’s parent organization has nearly half a billion dollars worth of assets, making them ineligible. He called for the funds to be immediately returned and an investigation to be launched.

Senator Ben Sasse of Nebraska, meanwhile, accused the company of trying to “defraud taxpayers during the worst economic downturn since the Great Depression.”

Last year, Planned Parenthood killed more than 345,000 preborn children, which is the most they have ever reported in a year, while getting $616 million from the federal government, $591 million in charitable contributions, and $430 million in private revenue.

The abortion providers were among more than 600,000 loan recipients who appeared on the list. Because the list only counted those who got at least $150,000, 86.5 percent of the total borrowers were left unnamed.

The loans were designed to help small businesses that were struggling to meet their payroll obligations during the COVID-19 crisis.  The low-interest loans become taxpayer-funded grants as long as the recipients continue to keep their workers employed – in other words, they turn into a cash giveaway.

Of course, every dollar this group took in its quest to kill babies was a dollar that small businesses in legitimate need did not get.

Georgia Senator Kelly Loeffler said: “The Paycheck Protection Program was created to keep American small businesses afloat and keep their workers on payroll amid the coronavirus pandemic, not to provide government funding for abortions.”
