Up to $150 million in coronavirus aid goes to abortion provider Planned Parenthood
The Small Business Administration (SBA) released a list of Pay Check Protection Program (PPP) participants and it’s making some conservatives see red. Listed amongst the recipients are Planned Parent affiliates that received possibly as much as $150 million in government loans that will be forgiven and paid for by American taxpayers through a program designed to help small businesses weather the coronavirus storm.
“At least 43 Planned Parenthood affiliates received loans of $65 million to $150 million, according to the SBA records,” says NBC News. “Planned Parenthood withdrew from the federal government’s main family planning fund last year after Trump issued a regulation that would otherwise have limited its ability to advise patients about abortion.”
Previously, a group of Republican senators had questioned the loans, which they believe to be illegal.
Twenty-seven senators, including Tom Cotton and Mitch McConnell, sent a letter to Attorney General Bill Barr in May demanding an investigation of Planned Parenthood loans.
“It was not designed to give government funds to politicized, partisan abortion providers like Planned Parenthood,” the senators said of the PPP loans. “The funds in the program are not unlimited and were depleted once already because of high demand.”
The SBA sent a letter to some Planned Parenthood locations to return any money received from PPP loans, saying that the parent organization, Planned Parenthood Federation of America, was prevented from getting the loans under the program, therefore the local affiliates were also ineligible.
The letter warns that civil and criminal penalties come with a fraudulent PPP application.
The latest release of information from the SBA has Republican legislators furious.
“Planned Parenthood shouldn’t have received a dime from the government’s PPP program. It’s sick!” tweeted Rep. Doug Collins (R-GA).
Included amongst the recipients of the Planned Parenthood PPP loans are the affiliates in Orange and San Bernardino counties, CA, which detractors say are responsible for at least ten botched abortions.
“There is no ambiguity in the legislation that passed or public record around its passage that organizations such as Planned Parenthood, whose parent organization has close to half a billion dollars in assets, is not eligible for the Paycheck Protection Program,” said Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL).
The Democrats have been using the coronavirus crisis to push for federal funding for abortions in the U.S. that is currently generally forbidden under the Hyde Amendment.
“A new mandatory funding stream that does not have Hyde protections would be unprecedented,” a White House official told the New York Post. “Under the guise of protecting people, Speaker Pelosi is working to make sure taxpayer dollars are spent covering abortion — which is not only backwards, but goes against historical norms.”

Yeah, the scumbag communist working for the IRS and the SBA have misappropriated funds mentality to help Americans! There is nothing new here, what is new is that these communist scumbag bureaucrats will be prosecuted and executed under new Judicial rules President Trump put in place!
Planned Parenthood has NO right to Coromovirus funds. How does a group dedicated to murdering unborm children deserve money from anyone, much less from funds dedicated to those victimized by this virus?
I DO NOT WANT MY TAX DOLLARS TO GO TO THESE PEOPLE !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
It is not surprising that the pro death Democrats would support illegally obtained funds that were applied for by Planned Parenthood through the Corona Virus relief program through the Government. I try as a Christian not to condemn others for their actions but in this case can not dismiss this practice but do condemn these people’s attitudes as outright Murder which is deplorable in my opinion. If the Democratic Party actively supports these actions I intend to actively oppose their position in the upcoming election.
I do not want my tax money to go these people!!!!!!!!!
One of Pelosi Poison pills in the bill
How many babies have lost their lives to abortionists compared to those who have died with this COVID 19 virus, in the states? I believe the number of baby’s lives taken will far exceed anything we see with this virus, which has caused our country being shutdown. Where is all of the protesting for human lives in the womb? Stop ALL funding for Planned Parenthood and it’s affilliiates. They need to be held accountable and prosecuted.
Why? Planned Parenthood, a real twist on words, should be arrested for illegally taking funds they knew they weren’t supposed to apply for. Got it anyway just like the millions of deceased people who got checks! Whoever was responsible for these mistakes needs to be outed and hung.
Almighty God has a place reserved in hell for all of these baby murderers. I do pray President Trump sets legal actions against these murders.
t he “confederate flag” is a wholley American FLAG and a symbol of the rebellious American nature to any and all oppression!And shown the respect it richly deserves!!!
Funds like this should go to education to assist schools in setting up their locations so that kids can return to school. Planned Parenthood kills kids. Let’s spend the money to help the kids during this pandemic.
I don’t want MURDER INCORPORATED (Planned Parenthood) to get one dime of my money!
I AGREE WITH EVERYTHING YOU SAID!!! PELOSI IS THE DAMN DEVIL!!! SHE DOES NEED TO BE ARRESTED FOR SNEAKING THIS HUGE AMOUNT OF MONEY TO PLANNED PARENTHOOD!!! SHE NEEDS TO BE ESCORTED OUT THE CAPITOL AND NOT RETURN, THIS IS A,CRIME, SHE NEEDS TO BE IMPEACHED!!! AWFUL HATEFUL WOMAN
