When Democrats in Congress railroaded Obamacare through the House and Senate, pro-life groups warned that the government takeover of health care would result in taxpayer funding of abortions and the abortion industry. The Obama administration has already sent large sums of taxpayer monies to Planned Parenthood and new reports show that is continuing.
From a Breitbart News report:
The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) announced Monday that two Planned Parenthood chapters, two United Way organizations and Ascension Health, the nation’s largest Catholic hospital system, are among the 90 nonprofit groups serving as “navigators” that will receive a total of $60 million to help Americans sign up for ObamaCare, says Kaiser Health News.
Planned Parenthood chapters in Montana and Iowa received grants totaling approximately $500,000.
Planned Parenthood of the Heartland, in particular, is expected to receive $218,940. HHS states that, this year, “PPHeartland plans to have Navigators cover 69 counties and will work with community organizations to identify the best avenues to reach the target population and strategically base Navigators in regions across Iowa.”
Planned Parenthood of the Heartland receives more federal funding just several weeks after the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 8th Circuit reinstated a case brought against the Iowa chapter by one of its former employees who alleged the abortion giant defrauded and abused taxpayer funds.
This is not the first funding from Obamacare or state Obamacare exchanges to the nation’s biggest abortion company.
California’s ObamaCare exchange is paying Certified Enrolment Counselors, including 38 Planned Parenthood affiliates, $58 per person for enrolling people on the state exchange. A “successful application” brings $58 per individual enrolled with a bonus of another $58 for enrolling a dependant. A “successful annual renewal” for these individuals will bring in another $25 per person.
Taxpayer funding also flowed to the abortion giant in many other states to recruit people for Obamacare.
The Obama administration awarded Planned Parenthood of Metropolitan Washington, D.C. $375,000 to “promote” the Affordable Care Act, and an additional $655,000 went to three more branches. Planned Parenthood of Metropolitan D.C. is the abortion business where staffers admitted they handled medications improperly and it also botched an abortion and left part of the baby inside the mother.
