For years, Republicans have tried to confront abortion organization Planned Parenthood over its questionable practices. Numerous reports have come out that they break the law by selling body parts of aborted babies. So far, this heavily-protected group has avoided any penalties. But recently they were exposed for taking money from the Paycheck Protection Program, a violation of the law. Now, Republican senators are demanding action.
You might wonder why a group like Planned Parenthood is so heavily protected by Democrats (and some Republicans) within our government. After all, abortion is a barbaric and outdated practice largely hated by the American public. Numerous states have laws that discourage the practice and encourage alternative choices.
Plenty of evidence has come out to prove PP is not a “health care provider” for women, but simply an abortion juggernaut. But they rarely face the penalty for their actions, because they pump millions of dollars into politicians’ re-election campaigns (who then pump hundreds of millions of tax dollars back into PP).
But a group of Republican senators has had enough. They are directing the federal government to investigate Planned Parenthood’s recent, unacceptable actions.
Sen. Kelly Loeffler (R-GA) led more than two dozen Republican senators in letters Thursday that called upon the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ), the U.S. Treasury, and the FBI to investigate both Planned Parenthood’s ability to obtain Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) loans and its sales of the body parts of aborted babies.
In one letter, the GOP senators wrote to Special Inspector General for Pandemic Recovery Brian Miller of the Treasury Department urging him to “review the loans made to at least 43 Planned Parenthood affiliates” under the PPP…

At least 43 Planned Parenthood affiliates took $80 million from the Paycheck Protection Program, despite being against the rules. The program was designed to help small businesses during state-mandated lockdowns. Larger groups were not eligible. But these affiliates—local chapters run by PP—apparently conned the Treasury department, taking millions from suffering businesses.
The senators are demanding that the Small Business Administration investigate how PP was able to get this money. Did they provide false information? Did the parent group, PPFA, help them? Whatever happened, it was unacceptable.
Senators also sought updates from a 2017 investigation by the DOJ and FBI over allegations that Planned Parenthood was harvesting organs from aborted babies and selling the tissue to buyers. Undercover video revealed that Planned Parenthood and other abortion groups sold baby parts for thousands of dollars.
Such vile actions are punishable by ten years in prison or a fine of $500,000.
It’s critical that leaders push for action on these matters. All too often, very little progress is made by our government when it comes to investigating and punishing powerful groups, especially a group so guarded and worshipped by the left. But twice now, PP has been caught red-handed breaking the law.
Will the federal government bother to investigate? Will these crooks and murderers be punished for their heinous actions?
It’s not enough that they abort children, they had to cheat the government, rob from small businesses, and sell human body parts.
What next? Will we discover PP is partnering with China to spread new viruses? Are they the ones funding Antifa to burn down our cities?
You know, at this point, none of it would surprise me.
